How did you find out about us: I have been playing the Lord of the Rings mod for a few years now. Everyone in our community knows about you.

How old are you?: 18

Where are you from?: The Netherlands

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?: Aye

Why do you want to help with this project?: Because it’s cool and building is pretty much all I do in this game anyway. I also want to get into Conquest Reforged more regularly.

Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to?: The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, Unfinished tales. (And all the movies).

Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with?: I don’t like the forest Elven styles or Orcish styles. I do enjoy (and believe I’m pretty good at) Dwarven style. I’m also good at building castles.

Other relevant skills: I play guitar, badly.


Looks good to me! There’s always room for improvement, but you’re well on your way.

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.

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 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 Fornad or an Overseer know who you are on Discord so that you can receive the appropriate rank there.

Good luck, and happy building!
