Please read the FAQ, i won´t answer a comment if the question is already answered in the description.

Once the mod is installed correctly, you can find two new spells at Farengar
in Whiterun or you can travel to the west of Skyrim to a new location:
The Lord of the Rings world choice
Use the doors you can directly enter the individual worlds. Of course, neighboring areas are also interconnected.


1. How do i enter Middle-Earth?
- Farengar in whiterun has two new spells for you. These speels teach you
how to teleport into Middle-earth and back to skyrim. Alternatively
there is a door placed i the west of Skyrim. Fast-travel to it and enter

2. How do i start the battle of Helms Deep?
- Look behind the long wall. There are 3 glowing teleport stones on a
platform. They will bring you into the different phases of the battle.

3. How do craft new things/spells?
- Look at Elronds library, there is a desk where you can craft new
things, but you need different resources or books about the new spells
and items, so go and search them.

4. Will you update the mod and include more worldspaces?
- I have plenty of ideas for new locations, but i decided to stop working on
this mod. There are several reasons behind this decision.
I spent years on this mod and it was a really great time. But i´m not
done modding. I bought a brand-new computer for modding the game
Ark-Survival Evolved.

5. Are there any quests?
- Nope. ...Well i really wanted to include quests. At some places i
prepared scenarios for different quests. But over the years i lost the
interest in creating quests. Don´t get me wrong, i followed a first
tutorial and made one mini-quest. But that felt so time consuming, even
without the voice-lines....
I came to the conclusion, that my modding skills and interest are far more in level-design.
*But that doesn´t mean that there will never be quests. Look down N.6

6. Can i make a quest mod for this?
-So, if there is anybody who wants to create a sub-mod with quests - go
ahead, ask me for permission/advice and continue my work. (There are
multiple requests from sub-modders. By contacting me, i can deal with
your requests and help preventing them from conflicting.

7. My game crashes when going to place (...)
- I always try to prevent possible conflicts with game files and other
mods. That doesn´t always works and sometimes the game itself comes to
its limits. Bree is a sad example. When i created all the small details
for big city, my game crashed immediately because there were to much
objects, idle-markers, wandering paths and NPCs. So you see even the
hardware can give up.
My best advice if nothing works: try plaing the game only with the middle-earth mod. If it runs, it´s just a conflict
with another mod.

8. Why are there 2 .esp files?
-Because of some nasty problems with the first .esp i started again with a clean
new .esp to avoid new errors. When installing the mod, make sure
Middle-Earth-II is checked after the first in the load-order.

Feel free to add videos and pictures.
I hope you enjoy the journey through middle-earth and have fun you all.
