    Project Staff: Emil​

    Background Lore:

    Dol Amroth is a princedom which formed part of the kingdom of Gondor. It is ruled by the Prince of Dol Amroth; the banner of the Silver Swan flew along with that of the White Tree throughout the Third Age.
    Sea-walls protected Dol Amroth from the waves in the windy bay, and in the North of the city the tall Seaward Tower Tirith Aear was built which had a bell that was rung for the benefit of mariners and the castle of the Princes of Dol Amroth was built upon the headland.

    How many boats are you thinking you'll need?

    Should all the boats be big ones like the example, or can we experiment with little one/two-man fishing vessels and the like? Also, are the sides of the boat supposed to be white stained clay or did I miss a texture pack update?

    So yes, I think anyone that isn't OB can participate, whether you're new or not.

    Not sure on exact number, may come down to how many I think are up to standard.

    Some small boats would be nice. The white clay was used as it is a plain colour, havnt missed an update.

    About this question, I was wondering, would Dol Amroth have more or less ships than Umbar?
    I would guess less, but I can't say for sure.

    Are the lower part of the boats supposed to be under water? What about blocks like slaps and stairs at the lower part of the boats?

    Yeah, the bottom parts will be underwater. Slabs and stairs are discouraged on the lower parts because it makes derpy water.


    I noticed something while working on my boat: if the ships are docked, the sails would be furled, not out:p It may not look as good, but for the sake of realism, it's necessary.

    Maybe some will be docked and some will be out on the bay?

    Even if they were in the bay though, they would probably have either partially furled sails or be under oars (if they have oars) so the boat would be more controllable. You wouldn't want a sudden gust of wind to blow you onto the land:p

    I guess if they were far enough out, it might be ok, but we'll still need some boats with the sails furled.

    REMINDER: Keep within your plots when building boats.

    Do we need to be assigned a plot, or do we just start building?
