We have just finished resetting to a fresh new world! Join us on!

Darkness upon Middle-Earth sets its age from 2951TA onward, ten years after the Battle of the Five Armies. We have lore rulers and 'Realms' which comes with powerful diplomacy and additional strength. We also have Relics, items from lore that, once found, grant the bearer a powerful boost in the server. All of our Information is located inside the rules page. All of the updated information is located in our discord.

Rules: Edit

Note: The full rules can be found on our wiki, or on our Discord server.

  • Be respectful to every player, if you happen to ever get into an argument, keep it in a safe spot.
  • Ask a staff member if you’re going to use a mod.
  • Griefing NPC buildings is heavily frowned upon. If you absolutely must grief a building take the whole build or you may be punished. There will be times that it is acceptable to grief, such as prior to a server/region reset.
  • Keep it in english in the game-chat.
  • Use mature attitude as much as you possibly can. Acting childish brings an negative impression on yourself and/or others.
  • No bug exploiting whatsoever.
  • Use of X-ray or any similar program that walks in the same path as hack is strictly prohibited.
  • Staying inside Middle-Earth is obligatory, going outside will result in an inventory clear as well as a warning. If you ever happen to get spawned in the vanilla world, which can happen. Type /spawn to get back to the ring portal.
  • You are not allowed to set any waypoints inside other players claimed areas/bases or anything familiar that is player owned.
  • Keep excessive swearing out of the chat! Remember that many children play here and that some players do not enjoy seeing coarse language. Staff will investigate each instance of excessive use of bad language and will deal with it accordingly. Help Staff enforce this by placing a screenshot of abusive behavior in #staff-help or in a dm.
  • Utumno is strictly prohibited to enter. It is only used for the cause of events etc.

All war gear must belong to the Faction the player is fighting for. Special gear such as Black Numenorean and Arnorian may be used by Southron and Dunedain players respectively or upon Staff discretion.
  • Alignment rule: Players may not have positive alignment with enemy factions.
  • You may only use your own troops that belongs to your faction or sub-faction.
  • Your troops may not use gear from other factions.
