Lord of the Rings has been part of D&D even before the Tolkien estate insisted Gary Gygax change hobbit to halfling in the original game. But now the lore will be officially licensed. 
Cubicle 7, the publishers behind The One Ring, have announced a new Lord of the Rings RPG which is fully compatible with Dungeons & Dragons.

I agree, +Phoebe Gleeson, although it feels a little weird to say so. The table conversation also turned to magic vs supernatural powers.
