There’s some things that are off such as furniture in the interiors being a bit more fancy than you’d find in Rohan houses(though I’ve seen clear violations of this on the main map). I also want to work with you on how to utilize layers and do road gradients as an apprentice. I want you to build me an outdoor area with a shed and some profession based stuff. Maybe a candlemaker or a worker of fabrics. You can add it on and implement it with an existing build. So far so good!

I do believe your efforts are worth promoting you to apprentice. Everything appears to look great! I will have an Overseer confirm if the promotion is good to go. After that, I’ll be in contact on Discord to help teach you roads, as we’re gonna need all the help we can get with that! Awesome work. :slight_smile:

Confirmed, promoted to apprentice!

Being an Apprentice means you are a part of the project, but not a full Builder yet. You have this rank so you can learn and understand how we build. We have high standards and a focus on realism which means that there are things for you to learn. Your duties as an Apprentice should give you good grounding to become a Builder, and, as such, you will begin your first lot of on-server building work assisting current Builders on their builds. This will hopefully allow you to obtain the experience needed to build on your own when you feel you can start on building something on your own.

When building as an Apprentice, you are only permitted to build on one building at a time. This not only provides you with good practice for your time as a Builder, but also allows project leaders and Overseers to get a good and clear idea of what your building abilities are. This will allow us to give you better and more bespoke feedback, and prevent any unnecessary problems. Keep in mind that you are only allowed to work on something if you have permission from a project leader via an open plot or confirmation if it’s something else. Finally, as an Apprentice you must always listen to project leaders when they give you feedback, criticisms, and tasks. Ask them if you are unsure of what to build, or how to build it. You have this rank to learn.

Hearth will guide you further, but you can always contact others for any questions, any builder or overseer!
Welcome and enjoy!

Alright, I’m seeing some good work so far! You’re getting right in the mix of things and helping different projects out. I’m about to open the Bree-lands back up, I’ll be quite happy to see you working on at least one plot there. Also, I’d recommend you reach out to Guan or Soap and take a look finding some work to do in Moria. This will help us get a good grasp on your home building skills. Mind you, I do see you enjoy doing detail work such as gardens, so those are going definitely showing your skills improving. I’ve reached out to you in Discord, but let me know a time you’ll be available for us to look at your work and I think we’ll do a project together.
