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 !

How do you beat Sauroman as Riddermark. With "Under Sarumans spell" giving you -50 opinion from you vassals, you get even fewer troops. And of course, there is Sarumans 30 000 uruks...

A new dev diary will come this week, to show you some new stuffs we're working on. So don't worry, we're still working on it!

For all the questions about crashs/bugs/First Age submod, please read all the comments below, as we're trying to answer the most we can and most of your questions got already answers there ;)

- Is a First Age scenario is planned?
Yes. But not really. It won't come before a while, because it needs a whole new map, and a lot of works on it. For now, we focus on Third Age, solving the bugs and making the mod as cool as we can ;)
Same answer for a Second Age one. These two periods will needs separate submods so you can understand how difficult it is !

- My game crash and I don't know why!
Well, this can come from some things : the mod isn't compatible with the latest versions of CKII, but with 2.2.1. The next update will solve it. Check your installation of the mod too with the instructions you can find in the forum here. If these two things don't solve your problem, send me a pm with infos of your crash please.

- When will you update your mod?
When we'll have done our current work on it. We're not "professional modders", as most of us have real jobs IRL. We're making this mod on our free time, so sometimes we're not as efficient as we want to. We know we're a little too slow for most of you these times. But we're still working on it, always.

I hope these three answers will help you :)
And, don't be afraid to post supports, suggestions, and stuff like this. We really appreciate to see there's a community who like the mod and help us to improve it. Thanks to all of you !

For those having issues with the campaigns starting up, I believe it is due to the new update to 2.3.4. I may be incorrect but that would make sense. Is anyone with the most current version able to run as usual?

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…
