This wiki is not a place for making suggestions - if you want to do that, go to the forums or the Facebook page. This is a place to contribute information about the mod in its current state.

The wiki cannot be updated instantly, so the information on here may be inaccurate and old for a few days right after a new mod version release! But, whenever there is a new release, we will be working on updating it immediately.


The Lord of the Rings Mod is a huge expansion planned for Minecraft that will aim to add the world of Middle-earth into the game. This will include content from J.R.R.Tolkien's most famous work, the Lord of the Rings series, and eventually other related tales such as the Hobbit and the Silmarillion.

Currently the mod is still in the early stages of development, but a new public beta download is released approximately every month.
