Not sure what happened but my comment posted, and then did not post, think it was because I had it playing in one tab while I wrote the comment in another tab. Anyways here it is again.

The Alien RPG makers picked up LotR from Cubicle7. They’re called Free League:

FFG’s rpg materials are getting put to a new Asmodee backed publisher (I think unsure on who actually controls it) they’ll still be developed under the new people:

As for SoG, Dan, get to it! :P (Seriously though, ever since I first heard about the system I’ve been wanting to run a finished version of it. Let us know when the Patreon gets a beta document up on it so I can back it and look at it)
