The Midnight Setting Returns Later this Month as a Kickstarter for 5e

By far my favorite setting from the 3rd Edition Era was Midnight by Fantasy Flight Games. It is essentially Middle Earth (with the serial numbers scratched off) and Sauron won, and it presented the concept so perfectly that it made me want to run D&D 3e. That says a lot.

Later this month, May 27, Midnight returns as a setting for D&D 5e via Kickstarter. I am extremely excited, as taking 5e material and converting it to the OSR is fairly easy. I just hope they keep true to the original. Heck, I've been eagerly awaiting Midnight since it was announced in 2020.

  1. This is exciting! I've been hoping for an update for this for years now.

    Are you sure it's a kickstarter? I don't see any mention about a kickstarter and their website just says "on store shelves May 27".

  2. I'm also not so sure. In the Spanish website, the DM's screen is scheduled to be released by June 24th.
    But the core book doesn't have any release date....
