    ~Rivendell Forge Poll~

    Hey Guys!

    With the Reboot of Rivendell came a rebuild of the Forge, in the Time the project is already going, we made 2 new Forges:


    The Forest Forge:

    Note: This Forge is based on the one from Peter Jacksons Return of the King.

    The Lore Forge:

    Note: This Forge is lore accurate.

    To include you, the community more in the Project we've decided thats its on you to decide which of those 2 Forges we should use.
    You get 1 week time to choose one and after that the poll will close. :)

    Happy Voting!

    -Lukas
    Edit: Time until decision is Sunday, because the Current Result is speeking for itself. :p No need for a longer time

    I like how the forest one looks, but it doesn't fit in with lore or Rivendell. In a small human town it would, but not there.

    How do you define "lore-accurate"? Tolkien never described the forge in Rivendell.

    well lore accurated in terms of having a house like described in the atlas

    The Atlas isn't lore. It's a secondary source, and so both forges above are equally lore-accurate. It would be inaccurate to not have a forge at all, but that's it.

    So this is a discussion about aesthetics.

    Having a bunch of trees growing right over a place where you're working with blazing fires and hot metal and sparks is one of the least sense-making things I can think of.

    Arf, I love both... I'll go for the forest one, since it is not really non lore accurate and a bit more charming, but in my opinion, the best forge would be a mix of both.

    Forest one looks cooler, but the rest of Rivendell is basically all from the Jackson-verse. Would be nice to have one thing from the books in it.
    Also, as top_gun said, all of the trees are a huge fire risk. I am sure the elves would be more responsible! :)

    I really think the new one is a lot better than the forest one. It fits in with rivendell, even better than the original one.
