A short update concerning the C&D and the 30k signatures milestone.

Posted by Epoch_MEB on May 26th, 2013

Hello MERP fans,
As you may have seen, we recently hit 30 000 signatures on our petition, which is simply mind-blowing. We never expected anything like this number of supporters, so thank-you so much for continuing to follow us.
The sad news at the moment is that we have no news. We are about to renew efforts to contact WB though, so hopefully that should yield something.
We are also going to have another attempt at contacting people who could help us, via Youtube and Twitter. Anyone who can, please PM and tweet to anyone you think would be willing to help. Please send them a link to this page if you do so.
Middle Earth's Bane will be using twitter, retweeting him, or copying his tweets would really help to spread the word. Lets get MERP back on the map!

Also hopefully there will be something else being announced soon, so watch this space. (not this exact space... you know what I mean)

-The MERP team

Sweet! Everyone should do their part and email WB and tell them that they are wrong killing this project.

Writing a real letter is much harder to ignore ;) That could be the way forward

One does not simply send a C&D letter to Merp Team and expect them and the community to just give up...

You will always have my support!

PS Maybe you should make another petition at, there are all kinds of petitions there, so why not MERP...

Hmm well I'm not going to be sending WB anthrax (but only because I'm to scared to handle the stuff myself)

Not appropriate. I remember 9/11 and the following anthrax scares. It is no laughing matter. In fact, it was probably the biggest threat of potential bio-warfare that made it to U.S. shores.

MERP team...I <3 you
I really really really really hope this can continue! I've been following you guys since you were still making it for Oblivion, and I've always wanted this mod to happen so bad. This is like my dream. A way to explore all of Middle Earth, and in the Skyrim engine, it can't get much better!
I wish you guys the best of luck with those demons at WB who won't let people make their own fan content.

I really hope you guys are continuing this behind the scenes as we speak. Although it's understandable if you can't be bothered as long as you're not sure about this whole ordeal.

I always wished I could offered some form of help to the Development team nows my chance

I am doing my best at spreading the word.. Contacting local and International Gaming Magazines,
Journalists who would write articles for Webpages,

With any luck someone will help, My heart goes out to the Development Team of this mod, As I know how hard and long you guys have been working on this mod, And I will do whatever I can to try and help get this mod freed,
I am however sorry that I didn't notice the condition sooner, I often pop in but never noticed C&D

But you revealed the news on the 1st of September on my birthday last year.

I have been watching this mod for 5 years, Highly anticipating its release, I will not give up that easily

"You did not seriously think that Warner Bros could contend with the will of MERP Fans, there are none that can."
