As a wiki admin, I’ve long seen comments from users who have clearly not read the FAQ, asking when builds like Minas Tirith, Barad-dûr, and Minas Morgul will be added to the mod. The answer, of course, is in the decently far future.
But now, you can explore many of these builds before then. After multiple prereleases and a whole lot of work, I have completed my Mordor map. And not just a few builds in Mordor - all of Mordor. The whole land, with every build from lore, the mod, or my own mind. All of it is available to be downloaded and explored.
Here’s a full list, with descriptions, of the builds included:
- The Black Gate - The great fortress at the entrance of Mordor. The Black Gate features defenses galore, as well as a triple gate, the Tow…

Hey guys. I'm sorry about the lack of activity here; it's for the very same reason that Catfish became inactive. Still, I'll be more than happy to resume my job as the "image guru" when the update comes out. Furthermore, I've been spending most of my free time working on my YT channel. It is not related to this mod, instead, it focuses on the arthropods (predominatly centipedes) that I keep/will be keeping. Currently, both my channel and my arthropod pet collection are in their early stages, but that will be changing quite quickly. Anyway, feel free to subscribe if you are interested; I'd recommend it both for people who share my love of these animals, and those who don't, but seek to conquer their fears.

A number of years ago I stumbled upon a game called Minetest. It's an open-source voxel engine that promotes extensive modding (to the point where the actual game is just a collection of mods...). The game in of itself is not that impressive, although it has merit simply for being so extensible, as well as being open source. The engine is written in C++, so rendering is much faster, and FPS is much higher, especially on lower-end hardware. However, all modding is done with a language called Lua, which if fast (for a scripting language) and fairly easy to learn.
If you're interested in modding, the learning curve is a lot less steep than forge modding for minecraft, and in addition, the open source nature of the engine means that if you need…Read more >

Greetings, all! Some of you may know me or recognize me from around here, and it's because of my ties that I would like to invite you to join in a Middle-earth themed roleplay. The RP takes place late in the Fourth Age. The time-era reflected in the RP is loosely Napoleonic, while it retains many traits that make it Middle-earth. The RP is about a war against Angmar, which has risen again, and takes place all across Middle-earth. We already have a few members, even some from this community, including one of the moderators from this wiki. The style of the RP has elements from both wargaming and regular character-developing roleplay, if that describes it well enough. The RP is hosted on Discord, so anyone who doesn't have an account there sh…Read more >
It was build in creative mode, unlike my last two builds. It has a bridge, which can be opened with a lever inside the fortress, a small scorched forge, some armour stands, a pile of waste, and a small tent.The walls of the fortress are made of wood and stone, and are surounded with a moat filled with water, and quagmire at the bottom.As ussual, i think it looks good, but it does lack towers.Read more >

Some of you may have heard by now the news that Amazon plans to make a TV Series set in Middle-earth. It will be before the events of the Fellowship of the Ring, but there is yet no info on what canon plotline if any the series will be following. An unknown deal has been made with New Line Cinema, producers of the Hobbit and LotR Films, and in a surprise move, the Tolkien Estate will be partaking in the production as well. In fact, the Estate were the ones to approve the show, not the film-and-game group Middle Earth Enterprises.
What does this mean for the series? Essentially, we could get several results: a show based …Read more >
Sometimes I go ahead and check some posts and messages I typed with my older accounts, just to check how bad the grammar was.
And oh boy, was I in for a treat when I remembered my 2 years old blogpost about leaving the wiki. (http://lotrminecraftmod.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Longerbeard/Bye)
It was so bad, I couldnt even understand what I was trying to say (like "One person asked a very simple thing, and immedeatly got offended for illetarate etc because he didn't look it up. " . Do you know what I meant with that? Cuz I sure dont.) I also did it with my PMC account once, where I discovered the age where I didnt understand the whole your VS you're thing.

And shortly after the last one, it's time for more Mordor. I have now completed all of Nurn with the most builds of any update yet (though most of them are small.)
Alongside previous additions of Minas Morgul, the Udun fortresses, the strongholds of the Ephel Duath and Ered Lithui, Barad-dur, and Mount Doom, I have for you the following:
- Thaurband - The capital fortress of Nurn, Thaurband is a colossal city-prison home to thousands of Orcs and human prisoners and slaves. As the nexus for most of southern Mordor, Thaurband features vast prisons and warehouses, orc-barracks, slave barracks, command towers, a supply yard, and a port on the river Guthrant, as well as three command towers.
- Port Annurnen - A port on the western Sea of Nurnen, near …
Greetings everyone! I have decided (as you can tell) to start a blog! I am hoping (eventually) to post a lot of my ideas, adventures, and builds here, but, until then, I am starting small. So, here is my first blogpost! Any thoughts or pointers on it would be great!
Happy Halloween, everyone! Seeing as it is Halloween, I decided it would be fun to get into the spirit of things (pun intended) and attempt my first Barrow-Downs run.
Until then, I had not attempted to go to the Downs, on account of it being dangerous, but after reading up on it, I decided to try it, so, I gathered a few necessities from my house in Hobbiton (a Blue Dwarven Pike and three wineskins of Athelas Brew, among other things), saddled Ghâshmir (my trusty, yet utterly sca…Read more >

Well, I'm back with another region spotlight (it's been over a month -- I haven't forgotten TBH) and it's good to be back with another region spotlight. Today, I'll do a region spotlight about an area where the Horse-lords live, and the horses are the finest of any in Middle-Earth. That's right, the region of Rohan is in the spotlight.
I assume most people are pretty familiar with the location of Rohan, but, if you've never read anything about Tolkien's mythology, Rohan is located to the north of Gondor, and south of Fangorn. Originally, Rohan was a province of Gondor, but it was granted its independence from Gondor in the year TA 2510, as a gift for the Rohirrim's participation in a war against the Enemy.
Rohan is a nice region, there's jus…

It's time once more. I have now begun to delve into the various lesser-known fortresses in Mordor, and started with the three fortresses in the Mithram Spur.
Alongside previous additions of Minas Morgul, the Udun fortresses, the strongholds of the Ephel Duath, Barad-dur, and Mount Doom, I have for you the following:
- Seregost - The fortress of the Black Uruks, and one of Sauron's oldest holds, featuring many towers, deep catacombs, and the breeding pits that birthed the greatest warriors of Mordor.
- Amon Angren - The primary fortress of Lithlad, Amon Angren is a deep hold of Sauron's knowledge. Built underground, Amon Angren has a number of deep vaults built as a safeguard.
- Nargroth - The greatest of Sauron's mines, featuring walls and several t…
Hello, dear wikia folks of all types! Some of you may remember me from WAY back in like 2014/15, though probably not, especially the newer people. ANYWAYS, I'm here to bring you lot all a nice good-old-fashioned roleplay. It's sci-fi, sandboxy, and meant overall to provide a deep, fun, friendly environment. You don't need to be carefully managing a political and diplomatic web, though there are some who like to do that. You can control a vast interstellar empire, or be a single rogue on his quest for fame and glory (though we will be limiting it so that the vaster the empire, the less control any one person has over it). Also, it will be on Discord, which you do not need to make an account on to participate, though it might help you on the…Read more >

Hello, members of the Wiki community. Many of you know that I have long been involved on TOS; however, what you may not know is that I am also an admin on Eras of Arda's First Age Server, where I hold the role of Melkor, Lord of Darkness. Why am I bringing this up, you may ask? Because Angband needs YOU.
Not just recruits, but you, Wiki User . We need any and all players who are willing to dedicate some time for making the greatest power in the history of mod servers stronger. There are many ranks to advance to. There are many players in Angband and allies to fight alongside. There is plenty of equipment and room for forts, and plenty of rooms in the Hells of Iron.

For those of you who don't follow the Facebook page, I have listed here the results of the survey, which you can also see by clicking this link.
Most are 14-24 years old. No surprise there.
Unsurprisingly, most players found the mod by searching for a LotR Mod, while the second most common option was that of watching a YouTuber play it. I saw Mevans' creator vote in that poll, though, along with some other rather creative responses...
The majority of people play multiplayer, not surprisingly, followed by singleplayer. However, I'm surprised that creative singleplayer was more popular than private servers. I suppose it just goes to show how many people like to build big structures from the lore, I guess.
Most play several days a week, like me, …

Notes: I&F stands for Ice and Fire, GOT, stands for Game of Thrones:
Me and a team of people are developing a Submod of the Lord of the Rings Mod that changes the Language, Texture, Map, and possibly sound file(s) of the Lord of the Rings mod to make it just like I&F/GOT.
If you are intested in the submod visit our discord here: https://discord.gg/RNF9U2p
We will also be opening a server with the submod once it is completed.
We are in need of texturers! Apply on my message wall, in our discord, or in a comment on this blog.

Hallo! For those of you who do not know I am one of the Inkling Party, a group of people dedicated to crushing of the moronic suggestions of the hereticccs, I mean converting heathens from the shadow of Peter Jackson! Yes, I totally do... So recently I found a list of Shadow of War Nazgul, having already seen Helm Hammerhead being made one I was expecting mass heresy against Master Tolkien. However I had heard evil rumors, that Isildur had been named one of the Nine. I was grieved to discover this as the truth.
So, jokes aside I did find that Isildur had been made a Nazgûl, what do you think? As you can probably tell I am against it, it is one of the most heretical descisions Monolith has made.Read more >

Good day, everyone,
A couple days ago, I got back from a vacation. This vacation took me to many places, but not least of which was the Cape Breton Highlands. Now, I really like that area, because it contains my favourite type of landscape (do I have to say what it is?)
Now, the mod doesn't exactly have a forested hills region per se. About the closest you'll come to finding an entire region consisting of forested hills is a region such as the Trollshaws or the foothills of many of the mountainous regions of Middle-Earth, such as the Blue Mountains, Misty Mountains, or Grey Mountains. But there are two varients, present in many regions of Middle-Earth, that does create forested hills. One of these is called, surprisingly, forested hills.

Half of you probably don't know I exist I'm probably just the least cared about veteran by this point.

It's the map you're all been waiting for, whether you knew it or not... And at long last, I present to you the fourth installment of my Mordor Map, with additions this time based in the Plateau of Gorgoroth!
It is interesting to note that with this update, all parts of Mordor mentioned explicitly by Tolkien are now done. However, the map is not yet complete....
Alongside previous additions of Minas Morgul, the Udun fortresses, and the strongholds of the Ephel Duath, I have for you the following:
- Mount Doom - Including the Sammath Naur, Sauron's Road, and the Cracks of Doom.
- Barad-dur - As seen above, this is the crowning work of the map. Barad-dur is split into four sections: the outer fortress, with a lava ravine, mountain, bridge, gate-towe…
I have just realised that I have been very inactive on this wiki for quite a while. Know that I have not left you guys, I am merely in a very busy time of year at the moment. On top of study, I'm also working on a YouTube channel (It's mainly about centipedes, so don't get excited unless you're interested in that stuff), and as a result this wiki has been in the back of my mind for a while.
I daresay I will be more active soon.Read more >
Again, I am here to do a tour of one of my houses. In this case, I'm showcasing my house in the Gondorian woods (kind of like Little House in the Big Wood, if you know what I mean).

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…

- 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.

Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to business.
