MERP is a total conversion modification of the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Explore Middle-earth in a fully open-ended environment like you've never seen before. Play races like Elves, Men, Hobbits and Dwarves and take part in the War of the Ring.
Well, it's been a long road, two years long actually, but we did it! We actually got something out there we feel is worthy of both your time and ours! So now what? Where are we going to take the mod now? What are you going to see in upcoming betas? We're going to tell you!
Now that we've finished both the North and East Farthings of the Shire we will move on to the South and West Farthings of the Shire. It will only be a matter of time before the compleation of the West and South Farthing with full interiors for every hobbit hole. Then we'll release yet again, another beta based in the Shire. This beta will be much different though. Instead of taking a hobbit hole from Chorrol to Middle-earth, you will actually start in Bag End if you choose to start a new game as a hobbit. The world of Tamriel and Middle-earth will be severed forever and there will be no traveling between them. The next beta will feature a nice little treasure hunt quest that I hope you all will enjoy. We also hope to have the Great East Road from the Grey Havens all the way to Troll Shaws finished and fully detailed. If we have time we may also add the Ruins of Fornost, Weathertop, and Hill Trolls (a new creature) to the next beta. Whatever happens though, the next beta is sure to raise the bar and bring a great amount of enjoyment to your computer.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like MERP | Middle-Earth Roleplaying Project. We love games like Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
