New Town (Dol Amroth) Build Day 2018

24th February Official Start: 9:00 AM GMT

Supervisor: BWOT | Co-Supervisors and Job runners: Merlinc and Quantacube
Hello ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls to the great build day of New Town in Dol Amroth! This will be the final push for public production to complete the grand city of Dol Amroth.

Time and Date: The event will be hosted at 9:00 AM GMT on Saturday morning, until 6:00 AM Sunday Morning (21 hours in total). The date is the 24th of February, the Saturday of this week of which I am posting this.

Concept and House guide: As New Town is a different section and outside the walls of the main city of Dol Amroth, it will have a slightly different style. /warp NTtemp to see the concept and the house building guide. The foreman/co-supervisors will help you in building the houses.

Rules: As we are opening this to the public there are some rules you must follow or you will not be allowed to participate. The first rule is that you must listen to all Staff members and Co-Supervisors of the project. Saying that you should listen to all people artist+ as they are trusted members of the community and most likely know what to do and the way to do it. You need to read and follow all instructions and visit the build guide before building.

That's all the information you'll need, if you have any questions, feel free to ask myself, Quantacube or Merlinc.

May I suggest that we for NT use more dark wood than light wood as NT probably would use the wood from the nearby spruce forests rather than import birch wood from more northern regions of Gondor?

New birch, spruce and pine wood are all very bright.
Actually our birch planks color fits very well for new spruce wood:

The color of wood used for builing exteriors is mainy determined by weathering and it's protection against weathering. Many methods of protection darkens the wood a lot. Weathering makes most wood grey. Tbh I have no idea if the color of weathered birch and spruce wood differs from each other.

The lower houses are poor, the houses higher up are richer and spme of them are still bein build
So my inn down by the docks are supposed to be poor? Oups. I hope they'll put in weathered variantions of the yellow plaster when they remove the tudor blocks in the next rp update because I'd rather not redesign my inn yet again.
