Our goal as a team is to realize the world of J.R.R. Tolkien as closely as possible to his vision. We hold the lore to a very high standard and
will try not compromise to it. We use the films for inspiration, but base our visual design mainly on the descriptions in the books and the works of
Ted Nasmith and John Howe. We work very hard to bring a quality greater than that in vanilla Skyrim. We want our work to be looked at on the
same level as that of a professional game.
An Open-world Middle-earth RPG like no other!
Currently, we have a complete heightmap of Middle-earth (over 9 times the size of Skyrim!). The first stage in developing MERP is
landscaping, and creating settlements on our heightmap. The next stage is designing interiors, then creating NPCs, quests, and so forth.
Play the role of the Ringbearer, Frodo Baggins. Its up to you to decide the fate of the One Ring. Will you journey to destroy it: from the
quiet Hobbit town of Hobbiton, to the fires of Mt. Doom, or keep it for your own selfish desires? Will you follow the famous path taken by the
Fellowship, or do you destine to take your own path? The choice is yours to make. One fell step could mean the end to Middle Earth itself!
A map over 9 times the size of Skyrim. From Forochel to Harondor and from Forlindon to Rhovanion and every town and great city in-between.
Wield new weapons and armors designed specifically for Middle Earth.
Adventure awaits across all corners of Middle Earth! Join the White Council, become a soldier amongst one of the great armies of
the Free Peoples, or simply travel from town to town. Your own great journey lies ahead!
Join in many of the famous battles in the War of the Ring: from the Battle of the Hornburg all the way to the Battle of the Pellenor Field.
Meet and battle all the known, and unknown, creatures of Middle Earth: new farm animals, Ponies, Boars, Wargs, Trolls and even the mighty Balrog!

The lands of Althas, the setting of Lays of Althas : Sundered Order, are part of the world known as Jevreth. The birthplace of Man, Althas is divided into seven regions, originally seven Kingdoms: Anorthile, Driesefair, Gorandel, Lamniemalos, Narthendar, Nosmalos, and Vishethas. These were the Anointed Kingdoms, the first kingdoms of Men.
Even in its early days, Althas has been a land shaken by conflicts. In the early days, these conflicts pitted the Anointed Kingdoms of Men against the dark and demonic forces that threatened them. However, with the passage of time the world has changed. With the Anointed order eroding away and new powers rising, another war looms on the horizon, a war brought on by Man's own actions. Thenodar, a burgeoning new kingdom in the North, and Anorthile, one of the last of the three remaining Anointed Kingdoms, now prepare for a war that will shake all of Althas. Old demons and new enemies gather in the shadows of both lands as each sets their sights on the ruined wilderness known as the Feralands.
And with that Lays of Althas is "officially" announced and we invite you to join us over at our forums at www.epochgames.co.uk/forum, where any interested in joining can apply.
