We are developing a total-conversion of Silmarillion by J.R.R Tolkien for a game called Mount&Blade II: Bannerlord.
Ahm - this is my 6th RPG game/mod so far but so I just wanted to hear out your opinions. We are somewhat 30+ people strong commited to bring the world of Beleriand and we will focus a lot on narrative design, RPG elements of the game and story-telling.
Some of key features we are focusing on;
- Being able to timelapse between different timelines within ages after completion of certain events within the game. (First Age, Second age...)
- Cinematic cutscenes.
- Events. We will allow players to actually witness key events in the lore history such as Nirnaeth Arnoediad, War of the Wrath, Sinking of Beleriand or other stories such as Beren & Luthien, Fall of Gondolin or Children of Hurin.
- Overhaul to some of the downfalls of the RPG mechanics already existing in-game.
- Quite possibly, mod will turn into involve all ages in long run. (Including 2nd, 3rd and 4th age. Which is going to be based off 13-page draft of Tolkien.) We start off with first age.

We have so many plans and there is quite a bit of work done for the project already. There is a lot of previews and devblogs inside the moddb page.
Hope you like what you see!
