I've heard rumours.Have you read the Adventures in Middle Earth for 5e? I love it; it's the only way I'll play or DM 5e again. I agree completely that 5e as is is not at all appropriate for Middle Earth (way, WAY too much magic, unless you're doing the Silmarillion or something), but Cubicle 7 has done, IMO, a great job at bringing the setting to life under a familiar game system. If you haven't checked it out, I really recommend it.
I have The One RIng plus various supplements (I must have got a PDF special deal at some stage), but can't really imagine playing it. It just seems too fiddly. As I posted, I'm using Cortex+ Heroic at the moment for my LotR needs!
