Player name: AOCKASH

How did you find out about us: Not exactly sure, but a long time ago browsing through CR Servers.

How old are you?: 18

Where are you from?: Illinois/Iowa, USA

Are you in our Discord? Do you understand that you must have Discord running at all times when at your computer, and that you must check the forums every few days?: I am in the discord and I always keep it running.

Why do you want to help with this project?: I have always been a huge fan of Tolkien and I enjoy building in Minecraft. I want to join ArdaCraft to learn more about the lore and to join a community of people who share my same interests. :smiley:

Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to?:
Read: Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, (planning on reading Unfinished Tales soon)

Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with?: I mainly prefer building in the style of Men, but I also enjoy building Elven structures. I’m pretty bad at Dwarven and don’t really enjoy it, so I won’t be doing a whole lot there.


Hello! There are some really nice builds and you have a good grasp of the CR texture pack. You are right on the brim of builder/apprentice but I think it would be wise to get apprentice first so you can get used to building on our map. Congratulations!

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. 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.

In order to eventually obtain Builder, please read the guidelines below.

When you build a house in a project and think it is finished, you should post a comment on this application thread with the closest warp and coordinates of your house. Then Builders or Overseers will comment on this thread and give you fair feedback. When you have achieved a standard of building that matches the basic standard of the server, you will be promoted to Builder. This could be on your first build or one further down the line. ArdaCraft is a friendly community that explores the freedom to create and build together. However, when we are dealing with an enormous project like this there are some guidelines we need to follow to make it work.

• Firstly, always name the stuff you build. We have a set of project blocks that we use - you can read about those in the new player guide at ‘/warp spawn’.

• Secondly, if you are looking for something to help out with, you can type ‘/warp jobs’. This is where you can find all open jobs like building houses or something similar. You will be provided with instructions on how to get to these projects, and what to build once you get there.

• Thirdly, do not be afraid to ask members for help and get to know us. This is a community project and it’s important to be part of the community! Stay active on Discord and the forums. Make sure to let Beathaven know who you are on Discord so that he can give you the appropriate rank on there.


Side note: You probably only have to show competency in one build on our map before builder because your application was quite good. If anyone has anything to add, feel free to do so.
