This 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!
Version 0.831 - Final of the Middle Earth Project mod, an overhaul for Crusader Kings 2. Installer Version. Full description below.
We've found the History overhaul to be a massive stumbling block for any further development of the mod and the New MEP team being, as we stand, unfit to complete it. With the lack of progress has come a lack of interest in whatever minor work we can do and feelings of disappointment and failure in ourselves. This all added together with the growing and widespread movement away from CK2 to CK3 has left us questioning further wheel spinning. As such we will be posting a final release with what work we've managed and unfortunately disbanding the team. This release should be the most playable yet and remain so for as long as ck2 is, especially in pre-10k years.
We hope you enjoyed the work we put forth over the last year and a half.

Lord of the Rings Conversion Mod for Crusader Kings II
MEP is an overhaul mod attempting to bring the world of Tolkien to playability in Crusader Kings 2.
The MEP Team's hope is to allow players to experience Tolkien's world of Arda, spanning from Angmar and the Iron Mountains in the North, The Harad Desert to the south, the Great Sea to the west, and Rhun to the east. As well as enjoy that world from a number of different perspectives, be that a Great King of Gondor, the Dark Lord Sauron, a noble Elf-lord, or a blood member of the Orkish Hordes.
CK2 Compatible Version: 3.3.3
Outside of this Version the mod is not likely to function properly, including crashing.
