    I heard that much of this server is based on MERP (Middle-Earth Role Playing (the game)). I wonder: this game is 25 years old, how could you download this game? Please share a link for the download.

    Not that much is really from MERP, few non-canonical villages are though. But most we've used is the names of the villages. For Fennas Drúnin though I found a download for a module featuring it.

    And the general terrain (e.g. Tributaries of rivers that aren't on the actual map, and maybe some forests) comes from a large-scale merp map, according to @Credoo as stated in this thread: What is the scale of the world?
    For Fennas Drunin, there are certain buildings taken from MERP but much is not.

    Well, I downloaded it, but they are books. I didnt know MERP were books? Thank you for it and i will read them. Is there maybe a way to download Middle-earth Role Playing and I can pay for it. Obviously, it is not available on Steam. :)

    .... This made me lol a lot my friend.

    MERP is books and books only. Its a pen & paper role-playing game, you sit together with some friends on a table, then theres a game master who chooses a setting for the game (location, time, story) and then everyone picks a character and then you get a task to fulfill with your group and from that a story evolves.

    Alright did not know about that, but as it seems even though the name seems to be the same it has not much in common with the MERP we usually refer to here

    It is a roleplay game and it stands for Middle-earth Role Play, but this guy only shows us the map.

    That was a mod for Skyrimg originally, but it had to shut down due to infriging copyright and intellectual property. It is since then no longer available.

    What do you mean throwbacks? I'd say that my friends and I are in a combined 8 different campaigns at this very moment.
    (And we're high school seniors, not people who were around when D&D was really growing rapidly.)

    Meaning it's not as widespread nor as popular
