How did you find out about us? About 3 or 4 years ago a Google search for «Minecraft» and «Middle-earth» finally led me to ArdaCraft.
How old are you? I am an adult.
Where are you from? Valais (Switzerland)
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? The strangely touching depth of Tolkien’s narrative of Middle-earth combined with your careful, loving, complex and thoroughly researched building and landscaping give me enough reason to recognise ArdaCraft as a genuine work of art.
I would be grateful if I could make a modest contribution to it.
So I am applying as an apprentice: with the paths I made on my plot, the Rohan builds (longhouse, Grubenhouse, woodshed), with the brick hobbit house (not the McMansion-Smial) and the brick stable.
Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to? Good things first: The Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings trilogy (both in EN and GE), The Adventures of Tom Bombadil and Other Verses from the Red Book, Roverandom, Farmer Giles of Hame, Tree & Leaf (wich I like much), Smith of Wootton Major, The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle-earth, The Book of Lost Tales I & II , A Secret Vice: Tolkien on Invented Languages, Tolkien On Fairy-stories. I’ve also read the published letters and a lot of positive and negative reviews of his work and own Fonstad’s Atlas of Middle-earth.
I watched all of Peter Jackson’s movies (extended versions), also the Ralph Bakshi animated movie and «The Hunt for Gollum», «Born of Hope» an similiar productions. I even tried to watch the 1980 animated movie and this recently released old russian TV-adaptation and I am not looking forward to the upcoming Amazon-production…

Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with? : I am not an experienced Minecrafter (I first got to know Conquest reforged through Ardacraft…), but I am creative and have some imagination which – unbound - tends to overdoing as I did in my plot (I am sorry).
I like to make paths, I would like to help with Rohan, I would like to build ruins. I am a bit familiar with Rohan buildings, less with Hobbit houses and not at all with the architecture of Elven and Dwarves. I have my problems with diagonal roofs. In short, I have a lot to learn.
