    As I stated previously in the Tour of my Cozy Cottage blog post, I said I would do another region spotlight post, and, well, I've definitely kept my word. This time, the region that I wish to feature is going to be a very hot, dry, scorching desert. It's Near Harad, the home of the Southrons.



    Near Harad is located some distance south of Gondor, and north of Far Harad. It's very similar to the Sahara desert of the real world, with a few important differences. Firstly, you will find various Southron Men and their camps throughout the desert. Secondly, by nightfall, there are many scorpions to think about.


    Well, I don't really like this region of Middle-Earth very much, and I don't like deserts much in real life, either. They're simply too hot a…

    Hello everyone,

    Yes, I realise it's been a while since I did a blog post. And no, region of the week isn't forgotten. It will return soon, in fact, I may even write an issue of that later today or tomorrow (rainy days are great for that!). But, in the meantime, I have a small video here to show you around one of my houses on Isildur's Bane. It's located in the Grey Mountains, and is my first YouTube video -- ever.

    If you guys have any suggestions, please leave them down in the comments, but don't be too harsh.

    EDIT: The new issue of Region Spotlight is out, and Near Harad is featured. Check here for more info.

    After some rough turns (and roads!) Ascension of Arda is coming back, this time we are not going to restart or shut down at random sporadic times, and we will be using quite a few plugins to improve your playing experience, this time we are actually putting in an effort to selecting staff for our team who are mature and well rounded with the commands of the mod and plugins we use.

    We will be labled under our old name "Ascension of Arda", we are also temporarily whitelisted until a new spawn is done! In addition to this we will also have a new rules system put together and sieges will be banned until most (if not all) lore builds are finished.


    Some of the plugins we will be using are;

    Well guys,

    I have my new PC and have decided to make my partial return to the LOTR community, meaning that while I shall be partially active in the events that are upcoming, I am going to be endeavouring to create a full resource pack/my own version of the lotr mod. So as said before, I will now be partially active though most of my time will be spent creating this resource pack/something

    Thanks guys,

    Having noticed that TV Tropes has Works Pages for game mods, I figured it was about time this mod had one. So, well, I started one. 

    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/TheLordOfTheRingsModBringingMiddleEarthToMinecraft

    There's no way I can do this alone, though. I'm not exactly well-versed in TV Tropes editing. So if anyone wants to help, it would be very appreciated.

    If anyone knows of a trope not yet added, feel free to leave it in the comments. (We won't be adding tropes from vanilla Minecraft, only tropes for the mod.)

    After lots of hard work, it is time for another update of my Mordor map. Alongside the existing Minas Morgul and the fortresses in Udun, there are several new additions in the western Mountains of Shadow to be explored. This includes:

    • The Pass of Cirith Ungol - Including the Straight Stair, a pass, the Winding Stair, and Shelob's Lair in full from Minas Morgul to the Tower.
    • The Tower of Cirith Ungol - As seen above, in full detail.
    • Morgul-Watch - A watchpost on the edge of the Morgul Vale, irreverently built in an old statue of Isildur.
    • Morgai-Fort - A small Orc-Fort on the western slopes of the Morgai, home to Orc-Trackers.
    • North-Camp - A large Orc-camp on the road south from Carach Angren.
    • South-Camp - Another camp on Sauron's Road.

    Happy Canada Day, LotR Minecraft Mod Community!

    Wait.... that was two days ago. Looks like I'm behind on the 8 ball again. Well, that's all right, as today, there's a new region spotlight, just in time for the Fourth of July!

    ...I'm a day early for that aren't I? I can never get timing right these days...

    Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to business. This issue, I'm featuring a region of Middle-Earth where it's always dark, trees are virtually nonexistent, the very air you breathe is poisonous, and there are more Orcs than there are megabytes of speechbanks in the mod. That's right, this time Mordor is in the spotlight. Let's open the door, and enter this dark land...

    Gondolin

    June 21, 2017 by Cundö Calassëru

    Hey guys,

    As a lot of us know, sadly, the second age server is shutting down. However! In its place the first age server is opening!

    I'm am just announcing that I will probably be applying for Penlod (I believe that is his name) leader of the House of the Tower of Snow, because he was a great writer of the Eldar (or so I hear) and I LOOOOVE writing. I would like to know how I can apply (I realise that they aren't open to applications yet but I want to be prepared) and is there anything I should know about Penlod? Because while I know a lot about gondolin I don't really know much about him. I will be doing my own research but I would appreciate the help.

    Thanks guys.

    I haven't been on here for a while now and probably won't be on again for quite a bit. I would probably just have moved on had I not been impressed and surprised by how active and dedicated fans of this mod are. Whilst I myself have had my fill of Minecraft and, alas will soon return to the Middle Earth Roleplay Wiki I felt it nescasary to commend your efforts.

    Mithril Sword

    June 20, 2017 by Cundö Calassëru

    So just today I saw some old messages between two wiki members. One of them was asking the other if he could make him a mithril sword with a mallorn handle, and a deep blue jewel in the middle of a wing shaped guard.

    I saw this and thought "That would be interesting to try." So I tried it and this is my end result, I found that the gondolin sword had a nice winged guard design so I used it along with a custom handle and pommel and blade. 




    You may need to enlarge the photo if you want to see it more clearly (if you guys want I'll make an enlarged version so you can see it better, and if you want to use it for resource packs or whatnot, just take the image to the GIMP editing program and erase the white parts around the sword or else they wil…

    This is a short rant on the U.S. constitution and why it should be defended and upheld at all costs.


    The Constitution is the most important document in our country. It not only describes the structure of our government, but it is the source of authority for all other laws.

    So why aren't people concerned when politicians and officials ignore it or twist its meaning?  To ignore the Constitution is to say "I am not bound by the laws of this country, and its founding principles mean nothing to me". The source of the government's authority is the Constitution. That means that the ultimate source of authority for every law, executive order and judicial ruling is the Constitution. Furthermore, the Constitution lists the rights of every citizen. A s…

    It's been a while since I've written one of these posts. But that's largely because of the fact that I've been on vacation for a week, and working the rest of the week after that, and simply haven't managed to do the research needed to write one of these posts. A while back, someone suggested I feature the Blackroot Vale in my series, so, by request, here's a blog featuring the Blackroot Vale!



    The Blackroot Vale is one of the fiefdoms of Gondor, as well as a biome. To be specific, it's located south of the White Mountains just west of Tarlang's Neck. If you want to get there, just follow the road west and north from the Minas Tirith waypoint. Alternatively, if you're coming from Pinnath Gelin, go to the eastern end of that, and head due nor…

    It's been a very long while (almost a month? OMG!) since I have put out one of these posts. But with the long weekend, it's a perfect time for me to write another Biome of the Week (which I hope to put out about every 2-3 weeks... perhaps I should change the name of this series...). Anyways, the series has been re-started, and I will no longer try to keep a schedule here. I'll put out posts whenever I have time. That means we could have two (or more) posts in one week, or go for four weeks without a single post. This week, I shall be featuring the region of the Shire Woodlands.



    Finding the Shire Woodlands shouldn't be too difficult for any player, ever if they're new to the game, as the default spawn point is the Shire, unless a server opera…

    Hey guys,

    so maybe one or two weeks ago (or maybe more I can't remember) I posted a blog saying that I would be absent. Since then I have visited the SA server and posted a blog. So some of you might be wondering then why I said I would be absent. So let me explain and update you guys.

    I've been having a very busy time so I occasionally have been able to post a blog or visit servers. But other than that I still am absent, I might be getting back on to things more now, but who knows. Oh and to prove I haven't been lying lazily around; here's a new texture I've been working on, It's an update to Dacil and I'm still figuring out how to implement it into my resource pack.

    Hey guys,

    So for a while now I've been wanting to make an accompaniment (is that how you spell that?) mod for the LOTR mod. It would mostly add things that the mod makers aren't currently thinking of adding. For instance the accompaniment mod would probably add gondolin equipment that can be found in various places that were once inhabited by elves. (Who knows how that would work.) There's only one thing keeping me from making this mod.

    I know nothing about code.

    That's right, I have no code experience, I have tried following videos, tutorial pages, etc; but nothing has worked for me. I am wondering if there are any coders out there who would want to co-op with me to make this accompaniment mod? I do great textures (most days) so that's not a…

    Remember the Wiki

    May 3, 2017 by LOTRMod

    Hello everyone,

    This is just a quick reminder to all wiki users to remember what the main purpose of this site is.

    Recently I have been noticing that the focus seems to be gradually shifting more and more to making suggestions for the mod, discussing aspects of the mod, and discussing obscure aspects of Tolkien's lore. The forum activity is outpacing the article editing activity.

    While none of those things are wrong, and we certainly don't want to discourage them, I feel the need to remind everyone that such discussions should not be the main activity on the wiki. At least - not so soon after an update, while there are still features in need of documentation. In particular, the wiki still lacks a great deal of important information with regard…

    So, A whole new update for this mod. This is to be known as the Fellowship Update, clearly a cause of the new addition of the Fellowship System. Sure this is useful for servers, but singleplayer its useless. Rivendell popped up too but I saw the valley too large to build Rivendel as it would be seen in the movies or imagined from the books, so I was hintingly disappointed. The white downs was moved into the shire offering a more safe way to collect chalk without being attacked by orcs from the borders (being that you are a Hobbit). I also took notice of the descriptions of waypoints, which was useful for proving people wrong about their lore on servers :3. Then there were the secret additions...... I took it as my quest to find them!

As an minecraft vinalla player in the past, I was more tempted to play roblox instead (It went that far!). I had no interest in Minecraft anymore, and I didn't know how to download mods! So I looked online and found about eighteen different videos on how to download the same mod, Lotr MC. I thought "Hey, I know lotr. Watched the movies, read the Hobbit, and starting to watch the new Hobbit Movie!". I followed the tutorial (the first one that popped up 'cause why not), and waited about five hours for the mod to download, thats how crap my internet was!

    1. You can't be registered with a specific Minecraft host. If you are subscribing to a minecraft hosting service, I won't hack you. I'm only offering this to server owners who have a box in some datacenter someplace.

    It's based roughly on this sword here (unfortunately I don't know the name of the author of this picture, but it's most definitely not mine :P)

    It is time, comrades! I have updated my Mordor map at long last, this time with the Morgul Vale, including its most infamous feature: Minas Morgul.

    Minas Morgul has taken eight months, but it does not disappoint! Within the nearly two hundred blocks of moderately laggy build, there is much to explore. The Outer Ring of the city is full of repurposed houses, military forts, stables, a market, and even a redecorated tavern. The Inner Ring contains beds of Morgul-Flowers, fountains, stables for the mounts of the Morgul Knights, dwellings for the Black Númenóreans, and the infamous Tower of Dark Sorcery. Within the tower, even more secrets await... including a certain Gondorian king.

    I really hope you enjoy the map. Feedback is much appreciated!…

    This is a post containing much more information than my last one. 

    We all know that Mevans isn't planning on adding Valinor and the Valarin equipment anytime soon. So I'm not pushing for him to. These are simply some textures I designed. Some of them are similar to a few other people's textures, I am not trying to steal them. I just saw them and thought they would look cool if I altered them to fit my Valarin theme (which I have more of FYI, more to come) Please note that there are a wide variety of weapons here because I hope that when Valinor is added it will be a diverse place with a very mixed culture because that is how I have always seen it.

    It is largely based off of Glamdring although I have added my own touches as well as making the guard and pommel gold. I have (through a slightly complex process that I won't go into) put the texture over the High Elven Longspear.

    GUI Programs

    Recently I discovered PyQt, which is basically a library for building guis using the Python language. I thought I'd make this quick blog post because I have no good ideas on what I should make using this framework. Since Guis are designed so that programmers can make tools that non-technical people can use more easily, I thought that it would be the perfect time to ask all my friends on this wiki what you guys think I should write using PyQt. Does anyone have any cute and simple applications that they always wished existed but didn't? One good example is the java argument generator on planetminecraft, which does some things. That would be the kind of suggestions I'm looking for.

    Hey guys,

    I recently started making minecraft textures, more specifically ones to fit the LOTR Mod because it is absolutely the best mod EVER! I'm going to be showing off these works soon, if that's allowed on this website (not sure, can someone tell me?) Most of my works are for when the Valarin faction gets added along with Valinor.
