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.

Download CK2:MEP 0.3.1b
Middle-Earth Project 0.3.1b FULL RELEASE

This is a full update of the Middle Earth Project mod for Crusader Kings II. This update is compatible with version 2.1.6 of Crusader Kings II.
This is a beta and there will be bugs. Nothing is set in stone and we will appreciate any input that you think might improve the mod.


An Extended Map

Look into Belegaer, the Great Sea of the West, and discover the borders of the lost lands of Beleriand and Numenor. New islands, like Tol Fuin or Tol Morwen appears now. We reworked too some areas, like Bellakar, or the areas of Gundabad and the Misty Mountains.
Welcome to Gwaihir, the Lord of the Eagles, and all his kin in Rosroval, the "Peak of the Eagles". The Line of Golfimbul is still alive, and Mount Gram can prepar to war once again. All Eriador fears the new powers of the orcs of the North now!
Create your own kingdom of middlemen in Enedwaith, and become the High King of Isenvale, to balance the power of both Arnor and Gondor!

Craft your own objects !


As a Dwarf or a Noldor craftsman, you're now able to craft your own objects. Create some jewels, forge weapons, and improve your skills to be the proud heir of Telchar of Nogrod, or Celebrimbor of Eregion !
As a Noldor master or legendary craftsman, reconquer Ost-in-Edhil, and try to rebuild the Gwaith-i-Mirdain, the brotherhood of Celebrimbor, where were forged the Rings of Power. Gather the other craftsmen, and together, you'll give prestige and glory to your kin !
Use the Rings of the Dwarves to create more wealth in your mines, or try to find the One Ring, and maybe you'll find a Lesser Ring, these rings forged by the Noldor of Eregion as essays of the Rings of Power.

The Palantiri


Now, the Palantiri are all created, one trait by Stone. Try to keep the stones in your dynasty, and gain a lot of prestige with them !
As one of the guardians of the Palantiri, use your Stone during Wars to call your friends to the battlefield !
As an elf or a numenorean, travel to Elostirion, and try to see the Lights of Tol Eresseä through the Stone of Elendil, the only one who wasn't connected with the others in Middle-earth. You can gain more prestige, or become more depressed... Will you be as perceptive than Elendil the Great?

More corrections...


- Fixed some bugs, like the "the Old" for elves and dwarves
- Random generated numenoreans characters will now have some chance to gain one of the blood of numenor
- Colonize and Purge the provinces of your vassals

There is much more, and you can read the full changelog included with the download. That's all for now, we hope you enjoy this next step in the MEP ladder.

Oh and you should change the "Elf" trait in Elrond, Eärendil, Arwen and the twins to "Half-elf".
Btw is there a better way to help you and letting you know of bugs and mistakes? I don't wan't to flood the comment section just in case. I am liking the mod so far tho and I appreciate you a lot for working on it.

Use the forum on this page to report the bugs ;)
The "half-elf" trait won't give immortality to the character, but the elf trait will do. So that's a little compromise ;)

You have 3 traits for elves. Imo the "elven blood" should be the one giving mortality, whereas the half-elf should still give you immortality.

Hmmm... Well, that's true on one side, but we'll keep this for now i believe. In our mind, the elven blood is for the characters of second/third/fourth generation after the marriage, when the half-elf come directly after the first generation (so, for men too, and we won't give immortality to half-elf men ;) ). Plus, Elrond choose to remain from the elf-kind, not the mankind, so he can have the "elf" trait i think, no? But I note your suggestion, and will discuss about it with the team.

As far as I remember, the valar gave the choice only to elrond and elros but the half-elven blood already comes from eärendil. Arwën and the twins are supposed to be the 3rd generation and they still count as half-elven. Aragorn and arwen's son in other hand, does not because arwen wasn't fully elf blood to begin with.
It's not something that bothers me too much but, ye... used of seeing Elrond as the "Half-elven" xD

Btw guys found a "bug" where you don't age while making a character in ruler designer. That pretty much allows you to make an extremly strong and unrealistic 16 years old ruler.

That's not really a bug, we're aware about it, it's just a little "god mod" for the beta, and let us try some things.
