Edhellond

  • Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community that recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. Everyone can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more.

    To get started, visit The New Player Guide
  • This weekend 20-21 April the website will be unavailable for a few hours for a scheduled upgrade and maintenance. Estimated time that the site will be unavailable will be around 3 hours.

  • This community does not generate revenue and relies on its members and financial contributors to keep it running.

    For a complete month, we would need around 235 USD for a break-even situation.

ThemedBuilds
ThemedBuilds run weekly, from Friday ~9PDT/17GMT onward.
Main:

'Edhellond'
Reference: ThainsBook
Texturepack:
Gondor
'Main' ThemedBuilds are used in applications for the Commoner and Artist ranks.
Guidelines
By participating in a ThemedBuild you agree to abide by the following guidelines.
Lots:
  • You can find the lots at the freebuild server, at /warp theme.
  • Claim a free lot by placing a sign on the diamond block, and typing your name.
  • You should not leave comment signs on yours, or any other player's builds.
  • One player per lot, no skipping empty lots.
  • Reserved/empty/abandoned lots may be cleared at any time.
  • Any lots that do not follow the guidelines will be removed without warning.
  • Builds should not extend outside of your lot.
  • You may only ask for a Staff member's assistance with blocks that you cannot place. This generally includes water, no-physics materials, and fire. Staff will not help you with terraforming, copy-pasting, flipping or moving your ThemedBuilds.
  • Non-serious builds will result in disqualification from the next week's ThemedBuild.
  • Note! There are a limited number of lots each week. It is your responsibility to complete your build before the end of the ThemedBuild.
Applications:
  • Only work from the 'Main ThemedBuild' will be accepted as part of a Commoner application.
  • All builds submitted in your application must be entirely your own work, and must have been completed during the allotted time.
  • Screenshots should be taken using the texturepack defined at the top of this post.
  • Take at least one screenshot of your build with your lot-sign clearly visible.

Honestly, the plots aren't wide enough to allow people to do this justice. You wind up with it being either squished proportionally, shrunk, or simply having the sides cut off. The depth of the plot is fine, but the width is not.

You don't have to build whole Edhellond, only build an excerpt of your liking (a part of the harbor, a lighthouse, a house...)

How would those of us, namely myself, who are totally lacking in artistic talent, become a Commoner? Is there some other way? Every `artistic` `idea` I have had in relation to the current theme is either lacking in substance or derivative at best :( I reckon I am, at best, an artists assistant, the person who fetches and carries, does basic repairs, path ways, sign posting etc :)

Thrall now and thrall for life :)

All that matters in an commoner app is that you show effort. It doesn't need to be the Mona Lisa. :)
