MiddleEarthProject is a full conversion Tolkien mod for Crusader Kings 2 which will feature bookmarks throughout the Third Age. This mod is being developed independently from any other LotR or Middle Earth mods out there. The map will cover the main areas of Middle Earth, known in the books and films.

So, Middle-Earth is waiting for you! Will you play as the descendant of one of the noble families of Rohan or Gondor?
Will you try to reforge the ancient kingdoms of Elves in Eriador? Or will you try to destroy all the Free Peoples, and claim Middle Earth for Morgoth?
This mod will give you a unique strategy experience of the Third Age in Middle-Earth. From Forodwaith to Bellakar, from Lindon to Rhûn, lead your dynasty and survive the Dark Times. Become one of the most important Lords of the Age!

MEP Version 0.81B Released

News

Version 0.81B can be picked up here.

0.81B Highlights

Change in Professions, now an ambition to gain one rather than on start gains

MEP   New Professions

Sorcerer Powers now function differently, first the sorcerer must dominate the target with Dark Corruption, a diplomacy, then the Wordcraft spells, Invoke Curse and Dying Whisper, are enabled on the target
To counter Dark Corruption, healers gain the Banish Dark Corruption magic, a diplomacy, which removes the Dark spell on a character

Code changes for Population, hopefully fix issues. Minor overhaul to starting assignments by DerpAnarchist

MEP   Pop System

Added City patrols, at the cost of less tax, you can lower revolt risk in your capital to counter peasants angry about squalor

Removed dead Hunt for Ring decision, Hunt for Ring is now an ambition.

MEP   Focuses

Code changes for Colonization, hopefully fixes issues

MEP   Colony System

Stripped out Buildings to correct building related issues. An entirely new building system is being worked on which will incorporate the new Population mechanic. It is very WIP and will be expanded over time.

New Holy Fury style Prestige Dynasties; Current HF Dynasties are Eorl, Hurin, Imrazor, Anarion, Castamir, and Oropher.

MEP HF Prestige Dynasties


Removed All WIP bookmarks as history needs work, play outside the WOTR at your own risk

Saruman Era

Added Missing Icons for Old Realm Claims

New Holder of Maros in the Kinstrife

Continued updating and adapting of code changed/added for 3.0.x

Great mod, but how do I colonize wilderness/ruins, I see only option to usurp or to make a tributary state.

Mhmm. Buildings broke and cause problems so need redone, which we're working on doing. So barring anything else, as I said that'd be my guess.

This mod is a work-in-progress. All the same, it is very good. Being able to role-play with characters from the Tolkien Legendarium at the same time as I engage in grand strategy is great. Being able to add one's own flavour to Middle Earth's history is something I think is truly rewarding. The modder has gone into a lot of detail to make the base game fit the specifications of Arda and its history what with all the intricate family trees that are unnecessary but oh so lovely.
