Why hello there.
It's been a while since I've done this, but with a rather messy winter storm bearing down on my house, I figured why not do this since I really don't have anything else to do.
The region I have chosen to feature today is actually more of a region variant than a true region. It's rather wet, and is the kind of location where people like to build cottages in real life. That's right, it's a lake.
Lakes and ponds can be found as uncommon variants of most regions of Middle-earth. The exact location of each lake/pond depends on the world seed, and varies depending on the world, although fixed lakes are found near Esgaroth, north of the Shire, and scattered along the Anduin.
Lakes can be differentiated into actual lakes, which are the…

This is just a quick announcement to let you all know that I'm working on an updated Pirate Speak translation for the mod. It doesn't appear to have been updated for a long time, as more than half the blocks and items have no translation. My plan is for it to be totally comprehensive, like any good translation, and include everything from weapons and armor to gui and achievements.Read more >

It is my pleasure to present the Complete Guide to the Clone Wars!
After deciding that it would honestly just be too boring to just throw out the revised Clone Wars timeline that I've made, I decided to make a book out of it, and that book is now complete. In eighteen chapters (plus a prologue and epilogue), this Guide thoroughly and exhaustively explores the Clone Wars, from the Separatist Crisis to the last days of the war. Complete with color maps and in-depth battle profiles, each chapter explores 1-3 months of the Clone Wars at a time, treating the conflict as one massive story, from the widely-known battles of…Read more >
Today, I watched a video on AntVenom's channel, in which he tries to answer the question, "is Minecraft (vanilla, modded, otherwise) dying?" By all accounts of sales figures and active players, the answer to that question is no. The game is still selling well, and more people have played Minecraft in November than in the past several years. So the game isn't dying by a numbers point of view.
But, you can also look at it from a more philosophical point of view: has Minecraft lost the charm that attracted players years ago? To answer this, watch AntVenom's video on the topic below.
After watching this video, it got me thinking. We're in a similar situation with the Lord of the Rings mod in that it's been around for a good many years (close …

Today I had the... Fortunate? Hardly. UNfortunate? Also not applicable... Let's go with interesting. Yeah, interesting. Well, as I was saying, today I had the interesting privilege of entering the Warhammer Universe(s). I was looking for a long while for a good, relatively cheap strategy game that I can join with little worry of being dominated. Not a "strategy" game like League of Legends, where it seems to be whoever can click fastest (actually, come to think of it, thats a LOT of the games out now) instead of using any brainpower whatsoever. I mean getting down and dirty into the game, commanding, sustaining, and building armies, kingdoms, etc. Most MMO games around this genre I have seen so far give a diagonal view of the battle, when …Read more >
I disciverd a way to get rid of middle earth lag for good without the need of Fastcraft.
What to do in the luancher
Set the M1G into 4Gs if you have a 64Bit Pc

Alright folks, it's been a long while. Way too long if you ask me.
You know what I'm talking about... I haven't done a region spotlight/biome of the week since I don't know when. Maybe I should rename this to "region of the year" instead??
Alright lets cut the chitchat. Let's do a region that I'm sure just about everybody has visited at one time or another, though some people clearly find this region a pain in the derriere to visit. That's right, we're talking Eriador.[Uncommon]

I am making a mini review on the Lotr mod for Mevans
I made this for my support of the modRead more >
Hello everyone! I know this is not at all related to either Minecraft or LOTR, but I also know that quite a few of you here are high school students in the middle of the college search / decision process, and I decided to write this blog in the hopes that it will be of use to those of you currently in that situation.
- This blog was written specifically with students in the United States in mind, although some of it may also be applicable to the education systems in other countries.
- This is by no means an exhaustive list of questions one should ask potential colleges or situations that one may encounter, but is taken from formal training that I received to mentor high school juniors and seniors going through the college application process, …

As the title implies, who are the Variags? I know there are quite a few loremasters in this wiki. I have been doing some extensive research on the Variags, and have come up with my own theories. This is really just a post on my theories, feel free to chime in.
First off the word Variag, now the obvious answer is that it is a play on Varangian. The Varangians were Vikings that travelled east into modern day Russia, Belorussia, Ukraine, Moldova, Turkey, and even as far as Greece. They are famous for the Varangian guard, a guard of 2,000 Varangians that protected the emperor of the Byzantines. But the true history lies in Russia. See back in the Dark ages the people of Novgorod wanted a strong ruler, so they asked a Varangian chieftain to lead…Read more >
I Think this mod is great and that it deserves a lot of attention and that it should continue.
Mevans is a cool mod creator i'm glad he made a mod for Tolkien becuase i love Lotr and read all the books.
The mod is very fun and a great questing mod i have never seen a mod that had a questing system like this.
The plant and worldgen is also very cool and i like how the Mobs will interact and talk with the player.
Mevans is very creative in my words and that this mod should be the 1st best mod for all minecraft.Read more >
Hi, all! I decided to just get it done and make this comparison so I didn't need to look it up every single time! Since Azog and Bolg depart so heavily from their book counterparts, I decided to write this so people would stop getting confused about who was in what, and what was ruled by who. Will it help? Probably not.

Good day, LotR Mod community,
After having some fun breaking the mod, I have decided to write a post in where I see the mod going in the future.
Before going any further, the thoughts in this post are mine and mine alone, and none of what I write here is a suggestion for any specific feature to be added. Please see the Suggestions forum if you want to learn more about concrete features that should be added. These are just the areas where I would focus my energy if I were the developer of this mod.14:23, September 22, 2018 (UTC) Read more >
Good day, everyone,
If any of you have watched AntVenom's videos as of late, you know what he likes to do; break Minecraft, in literally any way possible. I got inspired by him, and figured, why not try and break the Lord of the Rings mod? One of the most obvious ways to do this would be, of course, the alignment; what happens when this reaches a very high number, namely, the 32-bit integer limit (2,147,483,647)? Minecraft is known, after all, to do all kinds of wierd things when numbers roll over this value.
This would've taken forever to do in regular gameplay, or using commands, as the max alignment you can add at any one time is 10,000, so I used an NBT-editor to accomplish this. And, yes, I was indeed able to get up to the 32 bit intege…

I've been working on this webcomic for well over a year now, so my apologies if some of the jokes are a little dated. This webcomic is set in a sort of physical representation of the wiki, personifying its different members in human form. (You'll see what I mean.) Please note that the users depicted aren't meant to be representative of their real life personalities and all creative choices with them were made for comedic purposes only. With all that out of the way, enjoy Repnepsherlock and Imwatson: A wiki murder-ish mystery, over a year in the making.Read more >
Despite rumours suggesting otherwise, the mod's development isn't dead, and neither are region spotlights, although their whereabouts have been rather "spotty" at times. But finally I've found myself a rainy evening, and I've fixed the wireless card in my regular PC, and am able to write you a new region spotlight, this one will be about the lands of Lindon on the extreme Western edge of the continent of Middle-Earth.
Lindon isn't hard to find, even if you're new to visiting Middle-Earth. To get there from the spawn in the Shire, simply follow the Great East Road westward until you can't go any further, and you'll get into Lindon after passing through Eriador and the Tower Hills. If you're coming from the sea, head towards the islands and t…

Here's a bit of fanfiction of sorts that I've been writing the last few months. It was just sort of lying around on my computor, so I supposed I could just post it here. Hope you enjoy!
King Aragorn II Elessar
It was on the time that the Dark Lord Sauron, last of Melkor’s true servants, was defeated, that Aragorn Elessar, first of his name was crowned King of Gondor by Mithrandir, shortly before his departure to Valinor. This began the 4th age by the Gondorian reckoning. Following a number of weeks of rebuilding the capital of Minas Tirith, and its surrounding areas (the Rammas, the walls of Osgiliath, etc.) he focussed on larger issues. The new Khan of the Golden Khaganate had already sent letters asking for peace, in an effort to…Read more >
I did a bit of research on what is currently in the market and stumbled upon a few very interesting gems out there. Would anyone be interested in exploring options to bring Middle-earth (or other/similar medieval fantasy themed worlds like Elder Scrolls, Fall from Heaven II, etcetera) to another voxel based open world game with concepts as used in gems like Stellar Overload, BlockScape, VoxelQuest or StoneQuest?
Any option would be interesting to discuss for the time being. Just throwing it out here in a very early stage after pondering the immense potential of the concepts of this mod and of interesting alternatives for Minecraft. If anyone wishes to contact me in private about this, you can use Discord or Facebook.Read more >
Good morn y'all,
If any of you follow the French Discord channel, you might've heard my announcement regarding the fact that I was considering doing a region spotlight at some point in the near future. Those that follow the French Discord will probably guess what region I'm highlighting in this issue, I am featuring "les montagnes rouges" a.k.a. the Red Mountains.
If you're not familiar with the location of the Red Mountains, I don't blame you man. They are located rather far to the East of most of Middle-Earth (curiously, east of the region that's "The West"), around the Eastern centre of Rhûn. Four clans of Dwarves lived in these mountains, though not much was known about them, as they presumably had little contact with their relatives in …

This update has been in development for some time now but I was pleasantly surprised by what they've added so far...
- Turtles as well as a turtle helmet and potion that both are pretty useful
- Phantoms, hostile flying mobs that attack you if you haven't slept in a bed for too many nights
- Drowned, water variant zombies which have a chance to carry...
- Tridents, can be used as a spear as well. I recommend Mevans looks at the code they seem to be pretty effective when it comes to not bugging out although a little OP at this time
- New swimming animation, looks kind of weird and buggy with the lighting but certainly a welcome feature, you can still swim the old way but if you try to sprint you will go into the new mode
- Kelp, sea grass and coral. …

After a lot of research and thinking and thinking again. I have figured out a logical theory on Beorn's background and the Beornings skin changing and history.
So, my take on the matter is that when Morgoth rose the Misties out of the ground to prevent travel a very small house of the Edain, let's name them House of Jeff, was living near or at the place where the Misties rose. It's likely most of the House of Jeff died from the rising of the mountains but the few who remain might've been affected by the Magic sort of like Nuclear radiation. This may have led to the Skin-changing abilities of the Beorn and possibly the House of Jeff.
Now let's fast forward a couple hundred years to the beginning of the 2nd age. The House of Jeff has grown att…Read more >
Good day, everyone,
Since the last region spotlight I released was on April Fools, I suppose it was going to be kind of hard to take it especially seriously. Have no fear though, today we're back to our regularly scheduled programming and we'll do a region spotlight on Middle-Earth, not on the lands of Mata Nui. This time, the region that I will be featuring is rather far to the north, and is one of the regions where I did a man vs Middle-Earth series some time ago. It's the Coldfells.
The Coldfells are located some distance south-east of Angmar, immediately west of the Misty Mountains. To their south lie the Lone-lands, and if you travel even farther south, you'll come to the Trollshaws. If you want to get here as quickly as possible from th…

Guess what I'm back with another region spotlight. But in keeping with this mod's BIONICLE theme, this one won't be about a region of Middle-Earth. Instead, it'll be about a particular region on the Island of Mata Nui, and that location shall be Onu-Koro.
Since I don't have a map of Mata Nui right in front of me, I'll have to give you the directions to get there as if you were playing the Mata Nui Online Game. If you're at the docks at Po-Koro, follow the path, and keep to your left. As you travel, you'll come past Hafu, working on a sculpture. At this point, go left, and the deserts of Po-Koro will gradually give way to the rocky foothills of the mountain. Once you get to the tunnel entrance, hop on the Ussal Crab and you'll land…

To begin, the mod has done very well so far. It has added almost every faction to the Third Age that you could want. Key word: Third. This mod lacks the First Age. (It's also missing SA, but more on that later).
Please note: I have not played Eras of Arda or any other First Age servers. If there are things from those servers that you want added to my blog, please leave them in the comments below. Thank you.
Another note: I opened this blog as a place for people to come and add to the possibility of the First Age. When I deem it has been fully fleshed out, I might post it on the Suggestions Forum.

Well, I decided to post my ideas on combat in MC on this post. Note that this not a suggestion to add these things it's just my thoughts on the matter.
So I was fighting some wargs/orcs up in the tundra (yeah I wish the mod team would fix that but oh well it's good farming) at first it was good then behind me 3 more wargs/orcs came and hit me, for most hardcore players that wouldn't be a problem because they'd have gmith. I despise the use of mith (mostly because in ME Mith is a prized possession that cannot be taken lightly, in servers I see people trading and using mith like it's nothing, I once saw a guy throw a stack of mith ingots into lava..... yeah that ticks me off) so I don't use mith, this got me down to half health, reali…Read more >
Ahh, spring! Are you as happy about spring as I am? The best part about spring is that I'll be doing another region spotlight. This time I'll be featuring a region on which I have travelled in real life, but which is probably under-rated by most players of the Lord of the Rings Mod. That region is Belagaer, the Great Sea.
Islands: Temperate and Global common animals |NPC = None |bandits = Never |invasion = None |traders = None |structures = Underwater Elven Ruin
Númenórean Ruin (on islands) |nearby = Coastal biomes of Middle-Earth |sub = Island, Beach |added in = 13 }}

Good day folks,
I don't know if you're familiar with the song "I've been everywhere" originally published by Lucky Starr, and subsequently covered by many other artists, among them Hank Snow, Stompin' Tom Connors, and Johnny Cash. Well, who'd have thought that I'd write a version about Middle-Earth? I did, and here's what I came up with:
I was riding along the Great East Road
I was carrying a heavy load
When along came a Ranger heading to the Angle
He said "come here and have a seat"
He asked if I'd ever seen a road so long and low in worth
And I said "Listen, I've travelled every road in middle-earth"
I've been everywhere man, I've been everywhere
Crossed the deserts bare man, breathed the mountain air man
Of travel I've had my share man,

It was build in survival mode, as somekind of challenge to make a much bigger base then ussual. I've added some
Uruk brick to the walls and the tower to add more contrast and color. Inside are varous different rooms, the first one being a armory, which leads to a staircase on the left, a feasting upfront, and a forge on the right. The forge is basically build the same way as they are generated in dwarven or elven structures, except with mordor brick and orc bars. The feast hall was my favorite room to make. It was based on a Rohirric feast hall, except everything is replaced with mordor equivalents such as orc draught rotten flesh, and maggoty bread. the walls are decorated with valuables, trophies, and weapons.

This is a Dalish house that I built a while back. I'm pretty proud of it, because it is one of my only Lord of the Rings builds that doesn't suck. It could also work as a survival house. I tried to build it like the ones in the mod, but a little more fancy, as a hardworking Dalish player deserves.

This mod is an unbelievable expansion to vanilla Minecraft. It adds tons of new biomes, items, plants, animals, armour, weapons, and building blocks.
