    As many of you know I started a base for the Artists of MCME on the free build server a while ago. Because of recent events and builds on the server DA and Moria, I was spending less time on it. However, I have started building it again with the help of Julian and Raf.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Artist Base

    This is a place for all Artists of MCME to just have fun share ideas and leave their personal mark somewhere. It's also a place to get ideas, introduce styles and etc. If one looks on the dynmap they can even see a place for commoners not far from this base. Maybe this can be a new idea where we just have a place for each rank and all can explore and see who was once this rank or is in it. Its also just a good idea to have a sense of unity in a rank.

    I think this adds a fun twist to some styles which we are using now and gives us a break from building strictly LOTR stuff but still with the same community.

    Oh so you are the "leader" of this project. I've been wondering about that for a long time now. I placed my name on the builders notice board outside the castle a long time ago but haven't really done much (as of yet I've only added some lighting in the hall of artists and that's it).

    What is the goal of this project? Do you have a certain style in mind or is it more like an free for all? Or what?

    I know I normally say this as a joke but it needs more lava.

    The goal of this project is to give each fraction or rank a place to see what the rank is all about and give the ranks a sense of unity, spread ideas and such. There is a place as you probably already have noticed where you can leave your name on a pillar and leave contents in the storage in the floor right in front. This is just to add some history to MCME and show newer players who was once holding these ranks and so on. The style is a castle for the outside of the base but as you probably also noticed there are some places which don't fit in medieval castle stype like a hot tub, basketball court and so on. This is just to add some fun and shouldn't be overdone. I'm going to add a space right outside for the artist community once the main build is done and hopefully this will either be a new extension to the base or various smaller builds made by artists but I haven't decided yet and will probably hold a poll in the near future.

    And for the second story of our building, this is what I had in mind (the mansion part)

    By the way. That "skull of the first Artist" would belong to 10 different people as there were ten members promoted to Builder (later renamed to Artist) all at once when it was first introduced (like Will_em, Ma5terMinD and Thatruben to name some of the ones I know of today).
    Either that or it belongs to Fireinferno13 as he was the first to be promoted into the Artist rank after it got that name.

    If you don't have stripper poles and the casino then it's not a true artist mansion

    Those look good @BWOT. Although I'd say we should also incorporate many towers and spires at the top, feel like it would make a nice top to the castle.

    I thought his scull was made of adamantium? How did you even get it out without killing... oh wait.. let me guess, he regenerated a new scull?

    No stripper poles (family friendly server), but probably a number of structural fence poles that just happen to be on wool platforms would be realistic.

    I was thinking... what if we built an art gallery or artist's pavilion or whatever a painter's workspace is called near the gardens?

    Also, in addition, we could do a museum with references/relics/artifacts inside or outside the castle.
