These are recommendations made by Tropers for Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor/Shadow of War Fics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist if need be.


Do warn when a fanfic may head into sexually explicit or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

    • Note: Talion's journey is not over when he dies...rather a new chapter opens up in his life. As the God of the remaining Orcs and Uruks still alive.

Westeros-Shadow-Beyond-the-Wall by Arch Psion

  • Recommended by: Kingdracula
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: The blood of kings holds a great power within. The Others know this. They did not know just what power Jon Snow's held when it was spilt by his own brothers, accomplishing through blind idiocy what was attempted long ago. Winter is coming, carrying death with it.

  • Comments: A very interesting story that merges elements of Shadow of Mordor into Game of Thrones. Rather than being the same characters from the game, the orcs and gravewalker elements are considered a part of Westeros’ history, rather than Middle Earth elements.

How well does it match the trope?
