Why do you want to help with this project? : I have been a Tolkien fan since grade 5 when I first read the Hobbit. I’ve always been obsessed with the world Tolkien built and have been drawn to anything that brings his words to life. I’ve been playing Minecraft off and on again for a decade now and have been looking for an excuse to do more with it.
Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to? :
Read: The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, The Unfinished Tales, The Children of Hurin, Beren and Luthien, The Fall of Gondolin, The History of Middle-Earth 1-10, The Atlas of Middle-Earth
Watched: Both Peter Jackson Trilogies countless times
Listened: Audio books for The Lord of the Rings (also the BBC audio drama) and the Silmarillion
Plot ID: 13:-36
Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with? : I have a good grasp on anything structural. I come from a construction background so anything that is a building, as long as I have a template/guidelines to follow, I can get my head around it. Filling in a space to make it look lived in takes much more effort, but if I approach it from a “What would I need to live in this house/work in this space” angle, I can eventually get there. Generally if I’m shown something I can reproduce it, and once I have a full grasp of the conquest pack, I should be quicker with what I build.
Other relevant skills : I’m very heavily steeped in Middle-Earth history and lore
