Hi Tobsie, thank you for applying. I will say that the overall shape of your builds is good, but the interiors are a bit bland. If you haven’t already, please take a look at the ingame Lorien and Folde guides, as well as completed houses in those areas, and see what you can do to improve your builds. And always feel free to message me or another Overseer on Discord if you have any questions.

Hello Tobsie, your Rohan house looks good now. Your Lorien house is also good, even if you have almost copied the guide block by block, but that is not that much of a problem. Therefore, we decided to promote you to apprentice. Welcome to the team!

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 us know who you are on Discord so that we can give you the appropriate rank on there.

Good luck!

So as you may know I’m not the best at building, and I agreed with the overseers that it would be good for me to spend a little more time as an apprentice to polish up my building skills as I am quite active on the server and get involved in a lot of projects. So here I am again! I would greatly appreciate any help or tips to guide me. Thanks!

I made a farm outside of Dun Thuaidh (my village in the North Clan).
coords: 7415 / 7725
nearest warp: /warp dun thuaidh

not sure if it counts bc it’s been put on hold, something to with Whee changing all the upland farms or something so it will most likely be redone soon. Thought I’d put it here anyway.

I’ve been layering paths. Lots of paths. All around Dunland. Ask Fruit to confirm. Can’t really add a warp or coordinates bc I’ve done a lot, though the place I’ve done the most is probably around Cae Uchel.
