Hey there! We've made a new page to streamline the process of finding and installing the latest everything, we know it was messy before, so this is our small gift to you. A succinctly small presentation page with the key facts, with just what you need: Click here!

And for the very end, it's worth repeating again TLD is primarily based on Tolkien's books, not on Peter Jackson's movies. So no need to ask about plate armour, uruk-hai crossbows, odd elven blades and other movie inventions.

We will be deleting/ignoring comments/questions that are flaming, rude or about LOTR movies stuff, Warband, bugreports and tech support. These have all been addressed in the manual and forums a million times before.

I tried to register on the official forum, but it didn't let me in, so I ask for technical support here: why isn't there an option for me at towns like "visit the ... merchant"?

You have to find the merchant first. And admire the pretty scenes :) If you don't want to do this you can change it in TLD in-game options.

Love the mod guys. We have bigger issues right now, though. The Middle Earth Role Playing Project(MERP) mod for skyrim has been given a C&D from Warner Bros. for using the lord of the rings name. They've been working on this mod for years now just to have it removed due to corporate greed. PLEASE support them. We're clearly all fans of LOTR and an attack on them is an attack on us. This mod could be next. If we let them defeat MERP, then no Lord of the Rings mod is safe on this website! please help. CHECK THEIR MODDB PAGE AND USE THE TWITTER HASHTAG #saveMERP

I doubt TLD will get C&D as it is much closer to the books than MERP. DOn't get me wrong, love MERP, and I've signed the petition; but I think the reason they were C&D was because MERP takes a lot of 'inspiration' from the films TLD does not.

This mod is utterly incredible! Everywhere I look I see the four years it took to make this world. From the orcs to the elven armor. The detail is staggering, every scene lovingly crafted, almost every armor textured to perfection. +5 The mod is well balanced and the immersion is total and complete. It immediately reminded me of an Elder-Scrolls Lord of the Rings game. +5 Now sadly there are the bugs. Several quests are broken and some of the enviromental textures (elven bridges and Gondorian stone…

Great graphics side(excepts from some minor issues like terrible Isengard buildings), new shaders (windy flora!) bus scripting siede is comeplatly failed compared to that what dev team promised. Gameplay becomes booring too soon.
