How did you find out about us : I found your cinematic videos on youtube.
How old are you? : 21
Where are you from? : Indiana, US
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, and yes.
Why do you want to help with this project? : I have been building in Minecraft for about 10 years off and on, and have always wanted to join a building community. I got into Conquest when it was a texture pack in vanilla, and played a little bit of Conquest Reforged a couple of years ago. A couple of years ago, I became obsessed with Tolkein and his lore and world creation capabilities specifically. They fascinated me, and I always wanted to be able to explore it somehow further than simply reading. I found your server on youtube after being disappointed with MCME’s world, and after a bit of exploration decided it would be the perfect fit for me as it is simultaneously a highly realistic and detailed world that I’d love to build in, and it is based on Middle Earth, which I’ve been dying to explore further.
Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to? : I’ve read the Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings books, and I’m trying to find a high quality copy of the Silmarillion. Additionally, I have copies of some of his unfinished works that were expanded upon and published by his family, and plan to read those once I have enough free time. I also use a An Encyclopedia of Tolkein: The History and Mythology That Inspired Tolkein’s World by David Day, and gain inspiration from images including those in A Middle Earth Traveler: Sketches From Bag End to Mordor by John Howe. Finally, I have watched the Hobbit movies, and Lord of the Rings Movies, and I’m currently going back through to watch their extended versions.
Plot ID : 17:9
Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with? : I’m generally quite good at mimicking pre-existing styles, and mostly enjoy men and hobbits, though I’d be very interested in learning dwarven styles. I’d most likely struggle more with elven styles.
Other relevant skills : I’m decent at landscaping, and may eventually apply to be a landscaper as well, though it will first take me some getting used to conquest landscaping. I’m also a pretty good writer, though I’m not sure how much you guys use writing.
