About the Server Edit
The First Age Server is a Minecraft project to make a role play server set in the First Age of Middle Earth. The server will use the LOTR dimension and the lands of the first age are created with a special technique. The server will take lore from any point in the First Age and at times, the Years of the Trees.
About the GameplayEdit
The server will be set in the First Age of Middle Earth, and is role play oriented, so players are asked to be responsible in how they play, interact with other players, build structures/factions, and wage wars. Any players wishing to be major lore characters (i.e. Fingolfin, Thingol) or Valar must apply for them in game. Any Factions made must be true to the lore of the First Age (No Mordor, Rohirrim etc.).
The First Age LOTR Server is unique from all the other servers of the mod in that it contains all the lands of the first age. This will allow players to explore the land and build roads themselves where they see fit. It is all about the best possible roleplay experience!
Major kingdoms in the Third Age do not yet exist on the server due to its time period. Because of this, blocks and other resources from those realms can be found in the market for purchase. Also, all crafting tables will be available for purchase. You can ask an admin to give you Alignment but you must tell them why you need the alignment, and you can only have +1 alignment given to that faction. Also, when alignment is given, alignment of the enemy factions will be taken away.
Partnership with The Second Age Server Edit
|“|| Good day, this is a document intended to fully explain the partnership that shall be taking place between the First Age LOTR Server and the Second Age Server. This shall be explained in several points that shall attempt summarize the various features of this partnership. Firstly, it must be acknowledged that the most crucial feature of this partnership is that of co-operation and mutual respect between the Staff-Members, Players and general communities of both Severs. Secondly, this partnership shall aim to allow so called 'cross-server' events to take place, whereby through the co-ordination of Staff-Members large events can take place between both Servers. Thirdly, the Staff-Members of both servers should be capable of easily communicating and sharing information of all sorts. Fourthly, certain Staff-Members (chiefly Owners) of let us for example say the First Age LOTR Server should be given the position of Guest Staff-Member upon the Second Age Server, and vice versa. Lastly, both Servers should attempt to publicize each other and to ensure that the original methods used to create both Servers are not reproduced without the full permission of the Staff-Members of the First Age LOTR Server and Second Age.
Seeing as the features of this partnership have now been fully described, the remainder of this document shall attempt to explain some further regulations surrounding it. Firstly, should this document be accepted by both parties the features outlined in it are to be fully respected and implemented to the best ability of the Staff-Members of both the First Age LOTR Server and the Second Age Sever. Secondly, this document is to be displayed upon the Facebook Page (should there be one in existence) and the Lord of the Rings Mod Wiki Page of both Servers. That now concludes this document which has hopefully been informative and helpful in explaining this partnership.
Applications to the Server Edit
Administrators and Moderators Edit
Since the server is not currently running, we are not in need of admins and mods. When the server comes online, this will change. Please do not ask to be staff, asking will only make it more unlikely.
Texturers / Coders Edit
We plan on using a custom texture pack for the server. Thus, we are looking for someone who can help with textures and sounds, and putting the pack together. Please send a message to the server's Facebook page if interested. (Update: The Server's Textures for the Texture Pack is now essentially completed thanks to the excellent work of several contributors, to see which armour set shall be used for which Faction see here).
Lore Characters Edit
If you are interested in being a lore character (i.e. Thingol, Fëanor, Galadriel etc) please leave a comment on this wiki page, or message the server's Facebook page. Messaging the Facebook page is preferred, as communication is slower through the comments section, and we would prefer if the application process is not made public, for authenticity in applying. Therefore, please message the server's Facebook page to apply as soon as you can. Applications will be judged by the owners on reliability, building ability, knowledge of the lore, and play time, although play time will be a minor part of the process, as it is often out of the players control. The player applying should have references to these things, if no other examples can be given.
To join a faction (i.e. Angband, Doriath) a player must only message the leader of that faction. The admins will not be involved, only the ruler of that faction can judge the player. If the player breaks a server rule, the admins will first go to their factions leader about the problem. If the faction leader can give no explanation, the player will be punished by the admins. If the player broke the rules due to a faction leaders poor judgment or responsibility, the leader may be punished, but only if the offense was severe.
(For information on Factions themselves see below)
Questions and ConcernsEdit
Any questions about anything listed previously, or not listed at all, can be directed to The First Age LOTR Server's Facebook page or this page. Any questions on the wiki page will be answered, but not frequently, so direct questions to The First Age LOTR Server's Facebook page.
To be revealed... Edit
Please do not ask to be staff.
Redistribution of textures and mapEdit
Since this server uses a custom texture pack and map, you may not redistribute and use these as you please. If you wish to use the map or texture pack on your server, you must get permission from the owners of this server. If you want individual textures please contact the creators of these textures, whoes names shall be listed in the texture pack itself. You can contact us through our Message Wall, and the texture creators in the same way
If you wish to use the map in-game, that is totally fine. However, if you wish to create a custom server using the map, you must first get our permission to use the map, to do so you can contact us through our Message Wall.
Factions listed as unoccupied are to inform players who may not know much about the First Age of Middle Earth. You can still be a faction not listed below, as long as it is moderately lore accurate.
Custom Factions Edit
Custom factions are appreciated and we hope for a variety of factions across Arda, and we have an idea to increase the experience of creating factions. For example, if someone wished to make a faction of Men near Hildorien, if they make a large enough faction with several cities, multiple active members and an amount of land relative to the size of their faction, we will allow them to send in custom textures to us to be added to the texture pack IF there is enough extra space, and if it is possible the faction could have arisen in the lore. Again, factions MUST be as lore accurate as possible, so no cities of Elves in the far North past the Iron Mountains. This is a feature we are still working on, so input from the community is appreciated.

The Second Age Server Edit
The Second Age Server is a server run by PredatorFish. As the same suggests, it takes place in the Second Age of Arda and includes the various landforms of the time before the Sinking of Númenor. As is mentioned above we now also have an official partnership with The Second Age Server, and look forward to doing new and interesting things with them in the future! Check out their page here or send them a message here .
