Build-Off #4 (25-01-2021)

EQ build-off #4 – Forsaken Inn

“none have measured the road between Rivendell and the Forsaken Inn, a day’s ride east of Bree.”

- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Theme: the Forsaken Inn ( The Forsaken Inn - Tolkien Gateway )

Recommende resourcepack: Resource Packs – EpicQuestz

Time: 7 days. 12:00 Friday 29th January 2021 – 12:00 5th February 2021. (GMT)

Contestants will be judged based on the following three aspects:

Originality Category (How unique is your build from the others entered in the competition?) Keep in mind that while it’s fine to put a special twist on your build, it shouldn’t stray too far from the source material present in Tolkien’s book. (There is virtually no information available about the materials used, so think logically: what would they use in Bree-land.) Graded on a 1-10 scale

Artistic Category (How pleasing is the overall result?) This category focuses on things like composition, consistent detailing, block choice and the atmosphere of the plot. You may focus on terrain, structure or organics as you see fit. This is where most of your score will come from! Graded on a 1-15 scale

Reference Category (How closely do you match Tolkien’s descriptions?) While some might disagree, as the organizer of this contest I am putting this as the lowest-impact category, since I want builders to go out of their comfort zones and experiment as much as possible. (Here too, there is little or no information. But again, think logically. What would an Inn in Bree-land look like) Graded on a 1-5 scale

Judge panel:


  • one entry per person is allowed.
  • one person per plot
  • do not copy one of your older plots.
  • Inappropriate structures are forbidden.
  • judges are free to enter, but they cannot compete in the event.
