New progress has been started in Anorien! Led by Draonic, the Rammas Echor is being removed and updated to fit with the new style of Osgiliath. Rivers are also still being done by our lovely foreman Xmine. Textures are still in progress as well.

Lond Daer – Lead: @Ivan1pl | In Progress
Report by Mattlego

Since the last report there has been quite a few changes. A bit of replanning has taken place, Some canals in the southern part of the city have been planned out and many houses have been laid out in that area.

Moria – Lead: @barteldvn | In progress
Report by Mershy

Brilliant updates these past two weeks. The Upper Mines get closer and closer to completion. Oberdark, or Eastgold as it is known now, is almost finished up to the wood storage section of the area. Interesting new concepts have been in development for the Chamber of Light but that project will not be starting any time soon. Still trying to get Daom to go back to the 21st hall :D.

Osgiliath – Lead: @ooitsbirdo | In progress
Report by maski98

Osgo is doing great lately. @Oberanio is back to work on his camp and he and Andrew are racing to see who is gonna do better bridge. With some help from a few commoners I lowered some of the houses. @TheSweViking and @aVeryAngryBadger are finishing their concept for ruined villages and everything is going fine.

Commoner News
Howdy Commoners of the world and other lovely ranks! Please take a seat in my imaginary office while we take a look at the various freebuild projects our members are working on. Want to lend a hand?

Current Projects:

  • Common Room- The new parliament building is being filled in with rooms and offices, with the most recent one being a court room. But they still have a lot to go! Remember those WIP embassies? Those are also getting some work done! The Common Room needs your help building and decorating so be sure to contact Icarus197 or Jadened!

  • The Vault- We have great news for the Vault! After the incident that cleared all the chests, the player heads are back in and in order! Other than that progress here has been a bit slow this month, although the dome of the Vault was redone in a small build day. Still lot's have to be done in the city of Minas Calad, so be sure to contact ConfusedLlama_, Bean327, johnyeric, givet10 or Nelman_Black to lend a hand!

  • BoM- It's been a very productive month for the Beleriand project. Itai007 is voxeling the hill right now, and in the meantime Melkor_Thalion is looking for elvish houses, gardens, gate concepts, terrainers and even pixel artists! So, if you would like to try your skills with any of that make sure to contact him. They are also looking for more people with voxel who would like to help with the hill, so if any artists got some spare time, pay a visit to /warp Gondolin_BoM.

The Commoner Community wishes you good luck on your badge, artist, and guide applications!

AVeryAngryBadger: Congratulations to badger for making it to Artist! We’ve seen much of you in the little while you’ve been here and we’re all anticipating the beautiful builds you’ll make. And besides that, we’re all expecting a great increase of badger setts around the world. Good luck with your new job!

~ Winners of “The Week” ~

This week we have another round of amazing builds and Media posts. We only choose from the best every time, so hard work does pay off. Sometimes it can get competitive and that is what will win a place here. Please give a warm welcome to this Times’ winners of this week.

MEDIA Winners:
So while my PC's been attempting to melt my CPU into a puddle, you guys have once again been rather busy this fortnight with your shaders! One thing's clear, we're definitely seeing a wider variety of shaders used nowadays, which I quite enjoy. But another thing's rather clear and that's that, having judged a few Media Winners, I do really quite like this job. It's always fun to go through the screenshots you guys somehow manage to provide and be able to pick out the best of what made it into #screenshot-feedback, though I do sometimes wish I could rejoin you guys and get my own screenshots in the Times again. Still, do be sure to post more amazing screenshots! Makes my day to see them.

~ Closing Statement ~

Hello dearest community, many months have passed since we have last conversed and hope is showing upon the horizon. I would first like to take the time to thank our gracious Donors for this month. I would also like to thank those who support us by helping continue the project in terms of building and interacting with the community! As we go into the festive season for many, continue to stay safe (online interaction is the best interaction). The server will be hosting many fun events and lots of chaos will ensue. Happy holidays and I hope to see you around! Regards, awaywind

Great job for the Times Team, who did what they had to do, great job!


Quote from JRRT
“The Road goes ever on and on / Down from the door where it began / Now far ahead the Road has gone / And I must follow, if I can / Pursuing it with weary feet / Until it joins some larger way / Where many paths and errands meet / And whither then? I cannot say. ”
