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 :)

Our IP's are:
Main server: build.mcmiddleearth.com

This is where the world of Middle Earth is being built. It is a protected world, as such you can't just start to build anywhere you want. Our Designers have the ability to start Jobs in which you can participate. During these Jobs, the Designer can make some areas buildable for everyone.
You need to read both the FAQ and the Terms of Service in order to pass the New Player World upon joining.
Freebuild Server: freebuild.mcmiddleearth.com
This is where you can build creatively and take part in weekly Themed Builds. There are three main building worlds set up in Freebuild for you to build in - Themed Builds, Lore-Appropriate, and Off-Topic. You can find out more about each world by warping to the world and reading the information at the spawn location. Freebuild is made off-limits when there's a Job running.
Through the use of Minecraft, we create a virtual world with minecraft blocks. We create and design our own buildings, textures, landscape, sound and music, and more.
We only are building the world, we are not a role-playing server, nor are we producing a videogame. We are simply making a huge world out of Minecraft Blocks, in a creative Minecraft environment. Just building.
