    Edhellond
    /warp Edhetemp

    Project Leader: KlemensPlusLukas
    Reserved Leader: Emil_Oil
    Project Staff: Tyrhanystrasz


    Background Lore:
    Edhellond was founded by Sindar before the end of the First Age, who had come there as refugees from Beleriand during Morgoth's ascendancy. At first the population of the haven was quite small since the refugees had come in just three small ships, but over time their numbers had been increased by Nandor who came down the Anduin.
    From Edhellond Elves began sailing westward from the time of the fall of Eregion (in S.A. 1697).
    Amroth, Prince of Lórien, was lost at sea near Edhellond in 1981 when he attempted to swim to shore to seek his beloved Nimrodel. The ship from which he jumped overboard was the last ship of Elves to leave from Edhellond, which was deserted from then on, although remembered in the traditions of Men in Gondor.

    Love how you're basing this off the John Howe painting. Looks great so far!

    Well thats a really hard question, only thing i can say is that there are probably going to be Ruin jobs, After weve finished the town(probably in 1-2 weeks). But giving you a date and such is nearly impossible so easiest way is to stay online 24/7 but otherwise just stay tuned.

    You don't really sign up to build, Adventurers can pitch in whenever a job is started on an area.
    If you are on the server when a job is started, there will be a noise and a message will say that a job has begun.

    Wool plots are my victims, unbuilt houses beware.

    So Its my Pleasure to Annouce Edhellond being FInished :)
    Thank you everyone for your Time and Creativity you put into this.
    Wouldn't look as good as it does without all the Helpers.

    A Picture kinda doesn't get the feel for all of it, so i think it would be the best if you check it out ingame :)

    Overall it looks awesome, but I have two comments:
    First, the fields have too much intact wheat/potatoes in them. The stone buildings are more ruined than the fields, which seems odd. If you're going under the premise that the plants kept reproducing and spreading, that's fine, but there should then be some plants outside the edges of the field as well.
    Second, there are 2 un-ruined houses on the north edge of the town, which also have no furniture in them. I'm not really sure what the deal is with these, but they need to be fixed, whatever the plan was;)

    Edhellond has been deserted for like 1000 years, and i'm no botanist so correct me if i'm wrong, but potatoes and wheat are annuals, so they kinda wouldn't have been there a season after, let alone 1000 years later.

    I was going off of the fact that they could theoretically keep making seeds year after year for that long. However, there'd probably be a drought, disease, or fire that would kill all the crops during that 1000 year timespan.

    Ill look into the field stuff.
    The Idea of the Houses is that its a little fishing village, founded by gondorian people years after Edhellond was left. So they are still work in progress and kinda dont belong to the actual city.
