    Opening statement

    I'm back (Hello back, nice to meet you) with another MCME Times! The weather this week has been much too hot for me as the temperatures are going above 30 degrees Celsius and I am not used to it, particularly in the UK where it is always raining and cold, plus it is meant to continue like this for the rest of the week. However, that is enough weather forecasting for now, let's start to write this weeks Times!
    Project Progress

    Andrast (In Progress) - Lead: @jacenpeter

    Jace has now started to voxel a new valley in Andrast while matt is working with Eirol on the new textures.
    Belfalas (In Progress) - Lead: @Darki

    @Lindolas has been continuing to smooth the terrain over the pas week.
    Dol Amroth (In Progress) - Lead: @Thijs1801

    Houses were started to be built in Dol Amroth but no more houses will be built until we update to 1.12. @Wodleth has continued making a beautiful looking music school and a bit of work was done on the keep/palace.

    "ATTENTION: Everyone will be stopping with building until the server is 1.12." -Thijs

    Public Meeting

    Yesterday, we had the first ever MCME Public Meeting! For those of you who were not there, there should be information coming out about what happened at some point. But, now I will tell you what was decided for the last topic, "Public Meetings vs. Staff Meetings".

    There will now be a staff meeting every two months and in between there will be a public meeting. So, this means that one month there will be a staff meeting and the following month there will be a public meeting.​


    The Lore-Off has now begun, and the time to sign up is past. Over the next few weeks we shall see who will be victorious and claim the title in this competition of lore geekery. I for one wish all of the candidates good luck, with the exception of my opponent of course.
    WANTED: Short stories!
    Mapthor has had his bookstore for a few weeks now but he has got very few stories in it. Mapthor needs your stories, so if you enjoy a bit of writing or even reading, here is more information about the bookstore and how to get your books in it:

    @mapthor has been making a Bookstore in Bree with stories written by you in it. If you want another one of your stories in the store, then please write your story down and message it to Finrod! The length is pretty irrelevant, all it has to be is authentic. That especially means:
    - No items that would not exist in Middle-earth.
    - No MCME player names.
    - No conflicts with the known storylines.
    Themed Build
    Theme: The Bridge Inn
    Resource Pack: Eriador
    Duration: 1 Week
    MCME Audiobook
    The Audiobook, hosted by @TI_020601 is taking place regularly on Saturday evenings, 8:20pm BST, unless announced otherwise in this thread: The New Audio Book
    Smaug's Lore Fact of the Week

    This week's fact is known to quite a lot of people but this is for those who don't know it. There will be a much more detailed and less well-known fact next week. ​

    Fact: Arwen is Aragorn's cousin.

    They are cousins but sixty-three times removed. Aragorn is a descendant of Elros, who was Elrond’s brother. Elrond and Elros were part of a race called “halfelves,” which gave them the power to choose between elven and human lives. Elros picked life as a mortal man, while Elrond chose to be an elf. This is why Aragorn got to live longer than normal men. Arwen is daughter of Elrond which means that Aragorn and Arwen are cousins 63 times removed.
    Closing statement

    So, we have has another great week and I am looking forward to the next. I hope you are to.

    Also, please answer the poll at the top so I know how many of you fully read the MCME Times. Have a good day.​
