Why do you want to help with this project?: I have always loved Tolkien’s works as they are a major part of my childhood and teenage years. On top of this I have a love for architecture and adapting ideas, literary works or concepts into a mode where I can see its growth and enjoy its complexities. Minecraft is a fantastic option for this.
Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to?: I have read The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Silmarillion, The Fall of Gondolin, The Children of Hurin, The Adventures of Tom Bombadil and The histories of middle earth.
I have also seen all of the Peter Jackson movies and even the 1978 cartoon edition.
Sadly, due to a long hiatus from Minecraft much of my work (done on both servers and single player) has been lost however, I have a few screenshots from my plots on the ardacraft server.

Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with?:
I find I particularly excel at Stone based styles such as dwarven or cities that tend to be made of quarried stone such as how the cities of Gondor are often perceived stylistically.
I also find that I do well with more wood based houses and poorer style medieval architecture.
However, i do struggle with naturalistic styles of building such as elven.
