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!

Report RSS War of the Ring is Not the Only Start

It seems to be that many CK2 players don't understand that Eras/Bookmarks are not the only starts and you can play in about any timepoint.

So you don't want to play the War of The Ring? Well you don't have to.

Era Screen

To begin, the War of the Ring Scenario is not the only play you can start, it's just a suggestion and has a developed scenrio with it.

Era Screen   Custom Game

But it is not the only way to play, you can click the custom game setup button.

Custom Game Screen 1

It will bring you the the selection page with all bookmarks. The War of the Ring bookmark here works the same as o the Era screen.(Note that there will be more playpoints as they are developed but it takes time and we want to finish one scenario at a time.)

Earlier Start Date

On this screen you can change the start date by clicking the buttons at the top of the screen, time frame of the mod is from 1-16000, but note that history is sparse and outside the WOTR little is developed in the way of plot. Then you can select any of the locations on the map for a character, then click play.

Latest version of MEP(0.82) can be picked up here

Wait... people didn't know that the War of the Ring wasn't the only scenario...? People can't be that stupid, can they? LOL

IDK but lots of posts about the removed bookmarks that seem to suggest it's not known, so I made this.

Well I'm pretty certain there are bugs with ck2 and post 10k starts so 9999 and before are probably most stable, but work continues in WOTR so random events and what not aren't addressed.
