Player name: Marcel6942

How did you find out about us: YouTube Video by Keralis

How old are you?: 21

Where are you from?: Germany

**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?:**Yes.

Why do you want to help with this project?:I love Minecraft and Lord of the Rings and in the last years I got quite good at building in Creative. I was impressed by the level of detail and the realism of the builds on this server and I’d like to help out with this crazy project!

Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to?: all LOTR and Hobbit (movies and audiobooks)

Plot ID: 23:0

Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with?:Not really, I think I’m equally good/bad at all building styles, but I especially like the Lorien/Elven style., like in the “Caras Galadhon” -project.
I’d also really like to work on Moria, once that project gets started. I actually tried to build (a small scale version of ) the mines of Moria on a Creative Server once, but the server closed.

I’m still getting used to all the different blocks and textures in this modpack, although I do use the Conquest texturepack on my Singleplayer world.

From the images it looks really good, seems like at least apprentice stuff to me.
I’d like to see it ingame aswell, so i can judge it better.

Alright checked it ingame, and you’ve been 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.

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 know who you are on Discord so that he can give you the appropriate rank on there.*

I finished a house in Edoras (farrier and leather working), coords: x:10748, z:12888
pictures: https://imgur.com/a/fnBXBMk
I took the plot over from a Builder, who couldn’t finish it. The in-construction building and the stable were already done. I did the big building and all the exterior though.

also some pictures of the first build, I finished (tree in caras): https://imgur.com/a/gh7ddNG (x:12345, z:4925)
I forgot to post this earlier, but Badnana already approved it

Hey Marcel, your builds are well done and you are totally builder worthy; therefore, your app is accepted. But before we promote you ingame, I’ll need you to do some slave work in Lorien as a final trial (nothing too terrible). You are the first apprentice to experience this new policy, so you should be honored. Welcome to the team anyways!
