Middle-Earth Role Playing (1985)

I’m all out of big box basic (they only made four), so have a Games Workshop edition of MERP (1985) to round out the week.

Aside of the cover art and some oddly underwhelming standees, this box is identical to the Iron Crown first edition of the game. Buy holy wow, what a cover! Chris Achilleos delivers something far more metal than anything previously imagined for Middle-Earth. Tolkien is a lot of things, but rarely if ever is he bad ass, and this cover is definitely bad ass.

I don’t have much to add to my previous posts on MERP, so check those out if you want to know my thoughts on the game.
