The 'Middle Earth Roleplaying Project' aims to recreate J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth in the Creation engine of 'Skyrim'. The player will be plunged into Middle Earth near the end of the Third Age, not long before the War of the Ring breaks out.

On top of that, Numenor is sunk by the Third Age, Aman has been removed from the circles of the World, the New Lands in the distant east/west are uninhabbited, and we honestly haven't much info on what goes on out there. Even if we could, by some miracle, make a mod that occupied that much space, filling it effectively would be very dificult. Don't worry, there are a lot of things to see just in these regions. Pinnath Gellin, Dol Amroth, Pelargir (done right, unlike Peter Jackson's tumble-down shack version), Erebor, and many, many more will be in MERP in their entirety.

Numenor doesn't exist anymore in the 3rd age ;)
After all Elendil, Isildur and Anarion come to ME because they flee the destruction of Numenor.

This only might(!) be a possible expansion after MERP 1.0; and you would have to start a new character since there is no time travel in ME ;)

I know it sank which is a pity. I used to play this cool mod for Rise of the Withc-King which added the Numernoreans, quite cool and well done.

At any rate, good luck with the mod and sorry for the double post.

Didn't Numenor have a big tower in the center of the island which wasn't sunk? Just curious.

Not a tower, a mountain. It was a called Meneltarma. Legend has it that the summit, hallowed by one of the Valar (it was either Yavana or Varda, can't remember which (though I am relatively sure it was Varda)), didn't sink by became an island in the sea. However, no one has ever found it and returned. My personal theory as to why is that the peak lies on the edge of the two worlds, the Straight path which leads to Aman, and the bent path that leads around the world (the bent path is the world as it was after the Fall); as such the Isle of Meneltarma may or may not be found in either waters. It is said though, that men who die at see will come to/pass by that island and see affar the white shores of Aman before finally dying and departing from Arda. But then, that is just legend.

Not much chance of that, we're going to hit the 32-bit RAM limit at the end of MERP's development. Anything new would need to be stand-alone.

After the War ends, Gondor and Arnor are reunited. The restoration of Arnor, the rebuilding of Osgiliath, and the establishment of the new city at Emyn Arnen will all be simulated in 1.0. The player will be able to help with this restoration.

Have you thought of adding a perspective enhancement, which makes things far away, look even father in the distance? I think Age Of Conan uses it. Not sure, but it will make the world look even more massive and stunning.

I assume you mean the Oblivion to Skyrim comparison? That is for several reasons. One is that totally different methods were used in the development of each. Second is that we intentionally made Skyrim's mountains shorter, because the Oblivion mountains' size just made them take up way too much space. Thirdly, the new one is traced straight off of an actual LOTR map and Maegfaer made large usage of the Atlas of Middle Earth to determine how terain should be, so things are much more detailed from the start.

I can't wait to see the Mines of Moria. That will be one of the most grand of the places to adventure. One question though, will the mines actually take a while to get through like in the lore? It's a 3 day trip, and the major fighting only happens at the end so will there be mystery and adventure for something like 10-20 minutes before you arrive at Balin's tomb?

Is there any possibility for the creation of "Rogue" evil characters, such as haradriim wanderers who decided to turn good, or those turned to good by Rostreamo and Morginetar? It'd be nice to see a possible alternate setup to an Ithilien ranger type as a Southron, in my opinion.

Hey guys, looking awesome, can't wait for this to be released! I'm wondering, because you plan to add new races, will each race just look different or will they have other features too? For example, combat ability, resistances and unique interactions with NPC's (Like in Skyrim they have a form of 'racism')?

Significant racial offsets and limitations. This is a single player game, so unlike with a MMO we don't need to disregard the lore for balancing reasons. You want to play a Hobbit? Great, just realize that a Hobbit is a lot weaker in combat than almost all other races.

Sweet, I was hoping for something like that, will the Hobbits have other perks or advantages in combat? Like stealth or something? :)

Hobbits will have high stealth and agility and excellent bow skills. They are good at other forms of combat techniques, but are not that strong. So therein lies the biggest limitation for a hobbit.

Cool, will the bows be like on Skyrim (tedious and underpowered) or will they pack a bigger punch? Like 1 hit head shots and upper body kills? :) I promise to stop hassling you with questions if you answer this lol :)

Bows will be better and will become deadlier faster (the main issue in Skyrim is the endless grind before arrows are actually useful). One hit kills with headshots may be either a perk in normal mode or a standard feature in the optional realism mode.

No you can't. The only place to walk into is Mordor... and that is a challenge. One does not simply walk into Mordor. No other places than Mordor. Only Mordor. Check the front-page for more info on that one. :P

I know it's realistically impossible, given that the devs are only 40-50 human beings who have lives and are not being paid to do this. But this mod would theoretically not only develop the areas of Rohan, Gondor, Mordor and Arnor, ( Seeing as those areas are the ones people are most familiar with ) but also Rhovanion and the Brown Lands? Then there also is the question of including subzones within these territories such as: Mirkwoord, Angmar/Carn Dum, various Dwarven mountains including the Iron Hills and Ered Luin, etc.

Given all this work, needed for Middle Eart itself, would the devs say that work on the borders of Middle-Earth, shown in the provided map as Rhun, Umbar, South Gondor, Near Harad, will be virtually non-existent?

I know anything is possible at this point, but I feel that all the devs are already doing everyone such an unthinkable favour, that to ask more would seem to be remiss. Perhaps you could tell us the specifics of what you will be focusing on developing after the release of Rohan?

I would be eager to help in anyway, but seeing as I am not a modder...I guess I could write quests or something?

Thanks!
