Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community which recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. People can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more. This is a creative build server, we are not a survival or roleplaying server. The focus lies in creating the world and making the journey the experience. To get started, visit The New Player Guide
Minecraft Middle-Earth is a community that offers various services, completely free. I like that everyone can enjoy a great user experience by offering people that experience where you aren't forced into clicking ads, voting, or 'paying to win'.
I keep a simplified bookkeeping, which is available here, so you can quickly see how much the project costs in terms of renting webspace, servers, software licenses, etc...
Being financially secure is important to Minecraft Middle-Earth so that it can keep itself alive how it is now. Therefore, if you want to contribute, please make a voluntary donation by clicking on the link below. Thank you :)

Good thing there's the MCME Times! Else most of you (and neither me) would not be capable of keeping track of all the progress thats happening in this oh-so-busy 2015. It's purely amazing what... wait a second, who is writing this thing at all?! Yes, it's not our chief editor @MaDIIReD this time! But have no fear, MaD is neither forever lost in the Paths of the Dead, nor got he swallowed by the Old Man Willow. He's just dealing with a certain individual by the name of "Real_Life" who infringed the server rule #1: "Hindering anyone from being on MCME 24/7". The weekly ThemedBuild will still be managed by him, aswell as all the other Enforcer duties.
"Hindering anyone from being on MCME 24/7" is not really a server rule. The actual server rules can be found here: http://www.mcmiddleearth.com/help/terms
We're another week closer to christmas and for many of us the winter holidays have started and we're school free for a few weeks. We're seeing the first signs of christmas on the server as well. Read up on the christmas event posts if you've missed them, there'll be links further on in the article. With that said, sit back and enjoy another edition of the times.
Annúminas (In Progress): Progress on Annúminas is slow but steady. This week we saw the addition of some new canals making their way though the future residential area. The military district is almost done and the 'administrative building' has also seen some work and is now practically finished.
Dol Amroth (In Progress):...
So basically we want to spice up and homogenize our presentations on Youtube and have a similar style throughout our videos. However we still lack an 'intro video' for our videos. If you are skilled in making videos, or have any of the skills required to make one, please send me a private message so we can see what we can do! If you ever made something some motion art, please send a link with it!
- Affinitity for art and style
- Experience in creating videos and or animated presentations
