Welcome to The Shire! This mod is composed of a few basic features:

  1. An epic player-choice oriented questline containing both good and evil branches, estimated total of 30+ hours of gameplay. Fully and professionally voice acted. Comedic and dramatic dialogue specifically designed to branch into multitudes of choices whenever possible.
  2. A customizable hearthfire-style player Halfling-home. Dig out and create from scratch all the comforts of home.
  3. An expansive Lotro-inspired Worldspace full of towns, camps, and various encounters to explore. Bigger than Solstheim and designed 100% by hand.
  4. Over 6,000 lines of skillfully voiced dialogue. Six-freakin-thousand. Let that soak in.

This is much more than just a simple lotr-inspired mod. Check out this non-spoiler related review by a user on reddit

FAQ:
Will this be available for console peasants?
No, the mod is simply too large. Unfortunately consoles are negatively affected by this factor.

Can I translate this mod?
Absolutely! I can only speak English (and a very slight bit of Korean) so I am unable to do this myself. Feel free to contact me if you need any help along the way. Same applies for patches or add-ons.

How big is this mod?
Unpacked it's around 3.0gbs. Which is an impressive improvement over previous versions of The Shire.

Is this lore-friendly?
No. Although it is lore-compatible. The first quest provides a nice story driven transition between worlds.

I downloaded this with the latest version of Firefox and the zip is corrupted/mod crashes.
