    /warp Durins Tower

    Many people already wondered how Durins Tower, the last of the iconic buildings of the Mountains of Moria, will be done. Well here you have your answer! And you better get hyped for that massively, because you will need a whole lot of passion for what we are expecting:
    You will have time until a few days before christmas (20th december, 24:00 GMT (16:00 PST)), so it shall be your chistmas present to our beloved server. Make it a build truly worth of MCME! If we can find a clear winner, there won't be a finalist round, but in the other case there may be an extra week for a few participants.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Background lore:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Rules:
    - You need to apply in this thread with the following information:​
    • Team Name
    • Team Members
    • Plot Type (A or B), see below
    A plot will be assigned to you within up to a few days time (I'll try to do it asap). Go to your plot and write your team's name onto the sign over the entrance of the plot.
    Two reasons:
    - I can be sure everyone read this post; for ThemedBuilds for example many new players don't do that and just start building and often break a guideline. And as most participants may put quite some effort into this I want to make sure that not the whole work is just invalid because a guideline/rule was disregarded.
    - I may need to make more plots first, and I have no separate template somewhere, so I have to add more copies before the last available plot is taken.

    - Deadline is the 20th of december, 24:00 GMT (16:00 PST).
    - Griefing of any kind will be punished (oathbreaker or ban). This also includes if you build in a plot you're not teammember of and one of the actual team has something against it.
    - The Judges will choose the best design after the deadline. The winner build gets copied to the main map.

    Guidelines:
    - Eriador pack
    - It's not only about the tower, also the mountain peak shall be shaped nicely.
    - You can choose between two kinds of plots:​
    A. You get a mountain peak + basic tower outline (everything can be altered)
    B. You get a mountain with chopped off peak. May be easier to set up your imagined peak shape.​
    - Always build below the yellow wool cross or it will be beyond height limit.
    - If you plan on making greater terrain changes, make sure it matches with the terrain at the edges of the plot. The contour there is carved into the plot borders with red wool.
    - Don't extend the Tower interior into the mountain. (so don't make the endless stair go down to bedrock :p)
    - Important: The tower is to be built at a time before Gandalf fought the Balrog, so no Balrog and ruining only what time and weather would cause.

    Tips:
    - If you haven't done already, update your texture pack manually as described here: http://mcmiddleearth.com/threads/misty-mountains.1555/page-6#post-21635
    - do /warp Silvertine to get to Silvertine on the main map and to get a greater image of the surrounding terrain.
    - For your convenience theres warps to every plot: /warp dt#; for plot B05 for example do /warp dt5.


    Have fun!
