    Progress in Moria is a bit slower as expected at the moment. Please note however that it is of high priority to offer as much as possible to Adventurers+ to build. I (Finrod) am currently sorting out some last generic MCME things, then I'll devote myself more intensively to Moria.



    Contests:
    2nd hall pillar
    The pillars in Morias biggest hall serve of course a very important purpose and are aswell located at a very iconic spot: Right at the bridge of Khazad-dûm. Their description is very specific in the books, and be aware of that this description is different than the depiction in movies and old moria:



    As we will have so many normal pillars throughout Moria we really want a lore-accurate tree-shaped one in the 2nd hall!
    Additionally, we ask you not to ruin the pillars or add orcish structures to it.
    The plot you get includes both bottom and ceiling of the 2nd hall.

    2nd hall wall design
    No specific lore is given on the design of the walls in the 2nd hall, so here you can go crazy with the design. The plots given include 2 wall segments including the division elements between them (marked with red wool). Shape and size of these parting points can be varied in shape and size, but they should have an uneven size centered around the wool marking. One wall element is a normal one and the other one has an exit to build around. The size and shape of the exit can be altered, but should roughly stay the same size.

    Do not make a replica of the moria west gate onto these walls. If there's one place on Arde where you don't find elvish symbols like the star of Feanor or the two trees of Valinor, then its in the 2nd hall, the heart of the biggest dwarven realm. However symbols as Durins Crown with the 7 stars or the anvil + hammer are symbols that are surely appropriate.

    If you want to use runes (Cirth), you can use the following sources, or ask in this thread for translations / transcriptions:
    Cirth reference:
    Angerthas Moria - Tolkien Gateway
    Khuzdul reference and wordlist: khuzdul
    Neo-Khuzdul by David Salo, translator of the LotR and Hobbit movies: Khuzdul | Midgardsmal

    Yeah, that's something I was wondering actually......why weren't the pillars made tree-like in Old Moria?

    Okay for whatever reason @133mc claimed Plot 9 while it was already occupied, here's how it'll be:

    Team Dwarflords - @133mc & Lobber36 take Plot 14
    Another Mark on The Wall - @ProjectXMark1 takes Plot 15.
