This is a really nice start to your application. Your elven house, although quite small, clearly demonstrates that you have some skill at building as well as showing that you have taken the time to look at the style on the server.

For guests to get apprentice rank we usually ask that you have a shot at another build just to check that you can adapt your skills to other styles on the map.

So, could you have a go at building a middle class dwarven carpenter. You can do this on your plot next to your elven house. Make sure to check out some dwarven mines to look at what kind of style we want you to go for. When you’ve done this just add some screenshots to your album and notify us on this thread.

Feel free to ask us questions and good luck!


Here’s mine middle class dwarf plot deatails and pictures: -12:5 (dwarf),

Warp to dwarfguide, its a much better example for the materials you should use (almost purely schist, no limestone).

@FilThemilkMaker Yeah, we have a number of dwarven blocks that you haven’t utilised in this build. The shape and design of the house is rather good, just go through switching some blocks around.

It is worth noting that we are a server that strives for realism. For the dwarves that you are building, the only rock types they have abundantly available to them are blue schist and granite. Higher class houses might be able to afford rock like the limestone and andesite that you’ve got in your house but for a middle class house it needs to be mainly schist with some granite.

I also noticed that you have put a kitchen in your house. Dwarven houses on the server don’t have any kitchens because they eat together in feast halls.

Finally, could you make some sort of wood working room and maybe some other things that you’d expect a carpenter to have such as a wood storage area, etc.

Look forward to seeing your changes.


I have seen your build, it looks fantastic, welcome to the team!


@FilThemilkMaker what’s your discord name?
