This is a short guide meant to introduce players to Minecraft Middle Earth.
Everyone should take some time to get acquainted with the Terms and rules or 'Terms of Service and Rules'.

What is Minecraft Middle Earth?
It is a creative online collaboration project, aiming to recreate the world imagined by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is available and freely accessible for everyone.
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.

What Minecraft version do I need?
You need the Minecraft Java Edition, available at www.minecraft.net

What is Discord and how do I connect to it?
Discord is an advanced program for voice-chat and text-chat. It is available for free at Discord - Free Voice and Text Chat
Once you have it installed and you made an account, you can join our discord server at Discord - Free voice and text chat for gamers
Once you are connected you can reach out to people, join voice-chat channels, chat, share pictures, and more.

How does the building work? Can I do anything?
As a starting player you will have restrictions on where and if you can build. You can build during jobs, which are lead by a more experienced builder. This will be building with a certain objective in mind (such as building a road, farms, houses, interiors, and so on). When there is no job available, building on the map will not be possible. However you can still participate in Themed Builds or build on Freebuild once you have the role of commoner!

How do I get a new role?
Roles fulfill a specific need for the server. For example, there are people who focus on the building aspect (such as designers and artists), people who focus on welcoming new players (guides), people who coordinate and follow up on constructions (foremen and designers). A full overview can be found at Ranks and Duties

The rank of commoner for example can be easily attained by having enough people to vouch for you, and you will be automatically given the role of commoner. Other roles will need an application that has to be posted at Rank and Badge Applications on the website.

Themed Builds
Themed Builds are weekly organized building events. Each week will promote a certain theme, style or architecture in which you can show off your building skills, practice, or learn techniques from other people.

Freebuild is a dedicated world in which everyone can build whatever they want, when they want. Some rules apply however such as not building too close to other people, you might want to look that up at the Terms and rules.
