How did you find out about us? :
Via a YouTube stream from Nerd of the Rings.
How old are you? :
Where are you from? :
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?:
I always have Discord open on my PC. I am also able to actively check the forums when needed.
Why do you want to help with this project? :
I saw your project showcased on stream and was very impressed by the sheer scale and ambition of it. What really struck me the most was the professional building style adhering so closely to the books and historical accuracy of it. This made me want to participate and contribute where I’m able to.
Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to? :
I’ve seen the movies, read the Silmarillion and a little of the trilogy a long time ago. I’ve also been very involved with most LotR videogames and the world’s lore in general. LotR lore has been a close part of my life ever since I was a kid.
Plot ID :
I decided to try a hand at the Arnor ruins style. The direction I went with the build is supposed to showcase (what once was) a small guardhouse with a small, round tower stationed on the corner of it that decayed through time. I tried to make sure there was more rubble and elevated ruins where the small guard tower once stood, and tried to match the vegetation with the elevation of the ruins.
I’m available to hop into Discord to talk through the build in voice, if convenient.
Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with? :
I’d say that I’m open to doing all styles, although some styles interest me more than others. I’d like to help where ever I can though since the more variation in styles I learn, the more versatile my building skillset will be. I’m also still looking to explore what my preferred style might be.
Right now I’m most excited to potentially work on: Lorien/Caras Galadhorn style, Mordor orcs style, Haradrim style, Mirkwood style.
EDIT: Something I might struggle with is the concept of ‘less is more’. I understand how a lot of times being more minimalist actually brings out more character in a build, however I could imagine it’d be a learning process for me to add to a build without actually directly adding any blocks. I guess that’s also why the Arnor build appealed to me; because it’s out of my comfort zone.
Other relevant skills :
Throughout my life my main strengths have been leadership, communication skills, and attention to detail.
