The Tuesday Sundries - Using MERP's/Tolkien's Setting

For those who don't have time to create their own Tabletop RPG Setting or simply have a hankering to allow players to explore Middle-earth, one of the easiest ways to do so is to get hold of some old Middle-earth Role Playing (MERP) games books.  Licensed by Iron Crown Enterprises (I.C.E.) from 1984 through 1999 from Tolkien Enterprises, the setting detailed by I.C.E. spans much of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit works.  If you go this route, just look for some of the (admittedly expensive) out of print books on eBay.  The I.C.E. website has some alternate suggestions for resource materials here.  There is a good guide to the products and what is in them over on waynesbooks.com here.  One eBay auction I saw here seems to be offering much more than what is supposed to come in the basic boxed set.  I'd send a question to that seller before committing to buy it though.
