I founded this community on October 16 2010. It all began when I was introduced to Minecraft around June or August 2010. I started playing it, and I immediatly loved the endless posibilities and the social aspect of the game. I mainly played multiplayer in that time, even though it was terrible unstable, I had tons of fun!

Around that time I also became a moderator for the Tweakcraft Server, a server being hosted for people from Tweakers.net and other communities. The server was run by Grum, who now works at Mojang. During my stay there among all those technical people, I really got interested into the aspects of running a Minecraft server for myself, and that is when I decided to rent myself a server box at a data center.
I hosted various Minecraft servers which were available for everyone to join, offering a wide range of RPG plugins. Though I wanted something more serious than constant griefing and random people goofing around, I wanted to create a very small community of people who would have fun playing together and doing something constructive instead of annoying other players.
I wanted to offer my time and resources to an idea that I would find interesting. While browsing the minecraftforums, I stumbled upon the idea of recreating the entire world of Middle-Earth. Me being a Lord of the Rings fan, my interest peaked! After some discussion and finding willing people to start off the project, the first blocks were being built with one goal in mind: Recreating the world of Middle Earth!
