    • The front gate of Erebor maybe?
    • The gates of Angband
    • The Sea-King tower of Pelargir or whatever it was called
    • The Dome of the Stars if that wasn't too recent of a server build

    Don't you mean the Sea-ward tower of Dol Amroth?

    No, if Pela was a triangle this would most likely be at its center, Barad Aerhir

    Edit: Oh, and I just read the entire thread called "About Pelargir" To be honest, I'm kinda depressed about how much of an argument can be created out of how to geometrically create something

    I think it would be pretty cool and interesting if we tried doing some non Middle Earth related themed builds, like a modern theme or a roman theme for example.

    The first themed build was Roman architecture. No idea how many times I've suggested doing real-world stuff since then (at least 3), but its nice to see someone else thinking the same way. Perhaps not a modern thing though, since the skills should still be applicable to mcme. We could maybe try things like real-world castles/other structures as well as more general themes.

    Do you perhaps have an argument for why not? Or just a gut feeling against real-world tb's?
    It's absolutely fine if its the latter; I have on many occasions expressed opinions on the forums without good reasons to back it up.

    While it may be interesting for the older members who'd like to try a TB now and then just for fun, TBs are a vital part for the new members aiming for Artist. The TBs serve to get used to our RP's and our building styles. And that is just most easily doable with MCME-related builds.

    It'd be interesting to have a themed build over "The Floating Log" in the shire, seems like a nice cozy place and i'd love to see a bunch of unique adaptations of it :p
