Background
From the Tolkien Gateway:

Aldburg was one of the oldest towns in Rohan and the first capital of the realm.

Aldburg was built by Eorl in the region known as the Folde, east of Edoras. After Brego, son of Eorl, completed the Golden Hall and the Kings removed to Edoras, the lordship of Aldburg passed to his youngest son, Eofor, from whom Éomund, father of Éomer, claimed descent.

Aldburg is an Old English name meaning “Old Fortress”

This thread will be updated with progress and instructions as the project proceeds. Aldburg is already quite far on at this point in creating the thread.

Here’s a link to the ongoing excel plan:

There are now only three house jobs left in the Inner Bailey.
I need to assign the final 6 shop jobs, at which point we’ll move our focus to the Outer Bailey.
Well done to all the @Builders who have helped out!

We have finished Step 1 of this project, and as such job creation is paused while I prepare work for Step 2 - the outer bailey. I’ll tell you all when I’ve started job creation again!

The project is getting going again! Thanks to @the_pharaohs_cat for sorting out the pallisade gates:

The project is coming along well. I’ve added 6 new jobs regarding paths/terrain etc.

In other news, Cat and I have made progress on planning the Fortress area, and there are 12 jobs awaiting completion.

Judging by the pace of Aldburg, I think it entirely possible that the map can be finished off by January. We only started this project in early July and an awful lot has happened already.

Thanks to all the builders who have helped out so far.
