Second Edition Rulebook (cover)

Key for all MERP colored maps

The Middle-earth Role Playing (MERP) game was released by Iron Crown Enterprises (ICE) in 1984. It is a simplified version of ICE's Rolemaster role-playing game system. There were two editions of the rule-book, and many modules and supplements were published until Iron Crown lost the license in 1999. It is currently out-of-print.

The Lord of the Rings Adventure Game (LOTRAG) was released as a further simplified version of the MERP rules. It is also out-of-print.

With a few exceptions, the default/standard time setting of all MERP products was Third Age 1640-1650.
