Lockholes.

  • 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.

Hello. I was wondering if someone could direct me to where the lockholes are? I cannot seem to find/recognize them.
Mildly ashamed, Ardelenia

Ok,
You should warp to /warp theme on the freebuild server.
and if there are no hills, it isn't the newest warp and youneed to walk to the plots
As in the location on the build server, not the themed build. As in the actually constructed build in Michel Delving on the actual MCME map of Middle Earth. Not freebuild, not themed build. I think arde knows how to get to themed builds just fine one would hope.

Were they actually built as such in the build server? At the time of Bilbo's party, I think they would have just been an underground storage area; they only became "the Lockholes" after Sharkey's gang took over.

Clearly.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought they were there before. I mean, there was still crime (not much, they're hobbits), and there were still Shirrifs, so it makes sense. Also, I'm pretty sure they're there in old MD.

"The so-called Lockholes were the storage tunnels of Michel Delving, converted into prison cells when the Shire was taken over by Sharkey's Men during the War of the Ring." - Tolkien Gateway

Seeing as the server is set before the tunnels were converted to prison cells, you will be looking for plain old storage tunnels on the server. I'm not sure if there are tunnels specifically built as the Lockholes or if they are just left to the imagination.
