This is a full conversion Tolkien mod for Crusader Kings 2 which will feature bookmarks throughout the Third Age. This mod is being developed independently from any other LotR or Middle Earth mods out there. The map will cover the main areas of Middle Earth, known in the books and films. So, Middle-Earth is waiting for you! Will you play as the descendant of one of the noble families of Rohan or Gondor? Will you try to reforge the ancient kingdoms of Elves in Eriador? Or will you try to destroy all the Free Peoples, and claim Middle Earth for Morgoth? This mod will give you a unique strategy experience of the Third Age in Middle-Earth. From Forodwaith to Bellakar, from Lindon to Rhûn, lead your dynasty and survive the Dark Times. Become one of the most important Lords of the Age!

Posted by Lonhaldar on Jan 26th, 2014
CK2:MEP 0.1.4b has been released and can be downloaded either as a patch or full installation.
We have been working over the past week to fix bugs and enhance the mod, with many of the changes coming from your feedback! We can't thank you enough for your support and the interest has been a great motivation for all of us on the team. Your suggestions have allowed us to improve on our little mod and we hope you like the new patch!
Please remember that this is still only an early beta, there will be problems, there will be "What the-" moments, but we are making progress. But now, here's a small showcase of some of the new features and fixes in this next patch.
We have implemented three 'Trading Guilds' based on the Republic DLC from CK2. There is the Gondorian Guild of Venturers based in Pelargir, the Black Fleet of Umbar and the Sindar Mariners of Lindon. Explore a new style of play as you try to maintain and expand your trade empire even as the world around you spirals downward.
A multitude of new events have been added and we have tweaked some based on player feedback.
Other Notable Changes
Full changelog included with the download.
We are still in need of modders in scripting and events, as well as other things.
