Maybe you thought you wouldn't have another contest for a while.
But it is with pleasure that I tell you "You were wrong."
Next up is the new...

Pelargir Dome Contest

Concept image for your dome.
You've probably seen the huge yellow wool outline in Pelargir and said to yourself, "Hm, I wonder who will build that." Well, now you have the answer, and that answer is, YOU.

Lore:
The dome in Pelargir was built by the Faithful, those Numenoreans still loyal to the Valar, who built it as a place to worship the Valar. The Faithful were also good friends of the elves. Therefore, they also carried the name "Elf-friends," along with "Elendili."


Build Guidelines: Because of the function of this building, it should contain shrines or altars dedicated to the Valar, and/or some token of friendship with the elves.
Our beloved Head Designer Credoo has made a beautiful mini-model for your reference.

The green represents a garden area.
As you can see, the dome should not only be a dome, but it should contain a garden with a covered pathway around it.
It can follow either the "standard" Pelargir style seen in the majority of the city, a style similar to Osgiliath, or the style seen in the courthouse and rich district. It's up to you.

Time:

You will have three weeks to finish your dome, making the finishing date Sunday, April 26th. The finished entries will be judged by the Pelargir project leaders, and 3 finalists will be chosen. If you possess the considerable skill needed to get into the top 3, you will receive feedback on your entry, and you'll have until Sunday, May 3 to make any changes before the final judging.

Rules:
  • 1 group/person per plot (must apply on the forums and be given a plot before starting)
  • You may not participate in multiple groups/builds
  • Build a dome worthy of Gondor

Here's what I could find of concepts from my own things
-sneeeep-
A few ideas to help those that can actually build. :)
Personal request, don't make it like the dome in the 3rd/5th picture. That's our dome of the stars already.

Fixed, also the album says Venice, but the other two images are from the Vatican and Florence respectively.

Bombur, can I join your team?
Well, it would be with pleasure, but the problem is, while (I think) I'm OK with written English, I'm not comfortable with oral English, even on public projects, so the communication wouldn't be good :/ (RorchardMask, for its part, is a real life friend of mine) ...

If you win they'll probably let you finish the undercroft/storage once it's on the server but Easter eggs are a no no.

By easter egg, I just wanted to say a hidden feature, but, as I said, lore-friendly ;) .

EDIT : After verification, this could only be lore-friendly during Fourth Age, so I abandon the idea :( .
