It's Aranarth from the old hARDA server, and I don't know if you remember me, but I do remember you being a part of our community. I think I speak for the behalf of the hARDA community, we would love to have you back! With our new server and roleplaying systems, I think you would enjoy it. If you ever want to join again, feel free to come check it out. I can send you the discord link, which should have all the information you need to join.
Oh, you are quite a clever and observant person. Yes, that's my youtube pseudo, but not my real name. :-)
But you are not completely wrong. I just got married a month ago. And since then, my family name is "Peter" now. But I got my youtube pseudo long ago, before I was even thinking of getting married and adopting my wife's name.
@MilkMC: Thanks Milk, I didn't even know this existed.
@Jthemarvelfan: Thank you for fixing my profile and I meant, I spent several holidays there. Sometimes all alone hiking. In this case, you are forced to only speak the foreign language and then, I even start to dream in that language after a few days. I once met a couple from Switzerland in Scotland and we talked in English for half an hour, before we noticed, we could as well speak German.
This didn't happen, when I travelled with my girlfriend, as we were changing languages quite often and you won't get into the flow.
By the way: My nephew brought me to Minecraft a few years ago. He was about twelve years old by then. Now he's twenty-one and stopped playing, and I am still at it.
And Paul Soares Jr., a youtuber, brought me to the LotR-Mod. He just made a few episodes, but those facinated me so much, that I started to play it since then (October 2014, Public Beta 20) and also join the wiki.
In a well-established survival world that I have I am attempting to collect as many differnt kinds of saplings as possible! I am at over 20 and about to outgrow my large pouch. Aside from the trees of Harad, I have everthing expect for holly, mirk-oak, red-oak, lebethron, and ceder, all of which I shall gain soon! It's been a very fun project, as I love trees!
I saw you created this redirect and thought I should inform you of a few new templates. This one helps with linking to category pages. Also sometimes a faction/npc/biome will have the same name. Example: Gondor (Faction) and Gondor (Biome) Linking to these is more difficult, so we have templates to help with that too. Biome, NPC and Faction
Thanks for the welcome. It's just a short stop by. I don't have really time to be active here again. I just wanted to know, how the mod developped in the meanwhile. Not much, but quite nice stuff added since I left here.
What I am really longing for, is the implementation of the big named towns and other places, like Moria, the Shire villages etc.
Ye, I get that. But I'm afraid we can wait for ages before that will happen. In the meantime you may consider to join a stable, long term focussed server. There are quite a few out there, among others the new hARDA ofc, ... and the one ye aulde farte manages. Maybe care to start working on them with the easy-going folks on Ilu Ambar? I'm sure there will be more like you and me willing to help out carving out Hobbiton for instance. People are working on places like Rivendell, Belegost, Fornost, Rhunost, Erebost, ah no, that's Erebor, ... but you get the point. All survival building, and the occasional roleplay, so I think you'd find a seriously enjoyable time in that community. ;)
... you'd find a seriously enjoyable time in that community. ;)
Sounds promising, I am tempted. As the old hARDA server is gone, that I used to play on, I've got to start anew and I could do this as well on your server. And as you are the one administering it, I am sure, this is well done.
The only point is, that I'd like to start as a Hobbit pacifist again, and I'm not sure, if it's possible to work off the -200 Gundabad alignment, you get in advance. I have no experience with that new "regions of influence mechanics", have to try this out in single player before. I must probably kill a lot of good NPCs first.
Sorry, I can't contact you on Discord or on Facebook, because I don't have accounts there and also don't want to create one.
I'd love to see you in our community Ffets as you would so fit in with the many elder players we have, but you're basically requesting to set aside two major starying points for the server regarding preset alignment and Discord presence. I will discuss it with the core staff team and get back to you here. I tend to look for possibilities and I see some here as well.
No problem. I'll create a discord account, if necessary, if that's the platform, you discuss server issues. And getting my preset alignment to positive with all factions might also offer a quite interresting challenge to me.
Discord is indeed the platform for all servers to share almost anything server related nowadays.
We both see options to support a pacifist role and to allow players to apy for our whitelist without Discord btw. But joining Discord will make community life for you as a player much more interesting though.
Well Ffets, we now support whitelisting via our thread @ Minecraftforum.net if you do not wish to take a Discord account. We also agreed on how we could support a pacifist role in the true spirit of the humble hobbit: Players who chose such a role will not get any preset alignment, except with their own faction, and will get forced PvP Mode OFF, so they and any hired units they have cannot engage in any combat with other players or their hired units, except during Sieges supported with the SiegeMode mod. We're looking forward to welcome you.
Oh, that's very kind of you, that you are allowing me to play as a pacifist. Probably, I will only hire some shirriffs to guard the roads in the shire. As they have forced PVP off they are just for looks then. I'm not sure, how they react facing hostile NPCs (free spawned, not hired ones).
Meanwhile, I have read a lot of your documents of the Servers/Ilu_Ambar server. Sounds quite resonable. As you are using discord as your forum, I will join there, and hand in my application there for the whitelist. But first, I've got to update my minecraft to the newest mod and forge version and try it out.
