MiddleEarthProject 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!


INSTALLATION GUIDE
1/ Download the mod, and open the .rar file with Winrar or any similar software.
2/ If you've got a former version of the mod, remove it entirely.
2/ Extract MEP 0.1.5b in your "Documents/Paradox Interactive/Crusader Kings 2/mod" directory (NOT directly in the game folder)
3/ Launch the Game, and enjoy!

IMPORTANT ! The current release is a BETA version, with bugs, and obviously not complete !

I can't wait! This submod is going to be amazing. Any eta on normal mod update and will war of the ring senario be more stable?
It always seems to crash after like 15mins and the nazgul etc always revolt against sauron unless you play as him :(

About the main mod, no ETA for now, i'm working mostly alone, and i'm focus on new portraits and graphics for the Silmarillion. One week or two of work ahead, and i'll be able to work again on Third Age ;)
Thanks for your support!

It works okay, but it crashes for me quite often, i don't know if that is because i am playing the CK2 2.4.5 version or i have a DLC on that isn't compatible or the files are corrupt.

This mod is a work-in-progress. All the same, it is very good. Being able to role-play with characters from the Tolkien Legendarium at the same time as I engage in grand strategy is great. Being able to add one's own flavour to Middle Earth's history is something I think is truly rewarding. The modder has gone into a lot of detail to make the base game fit the specifications of Arda and its history what with all the intricate family trees that are unnecessary but oh so lovely. There is room for…
