Grimslade | In Progress
The map is getting closer and closer to it’s completion! We’ve built a little set of stables down the hill, to the west of the town, and finished another house outside of the walls. We have also built two new houses for nobility on the top level, in front of the town hall. Also on the top level, the stables have been completed though the barracks are still being worked on. A few new walls have been rebuilt there too.

Minas Tirith | In Progress
I have removed the old detailing on the northern side of the 5th level to make way for better and more up-to-date detailing, completed the tunnel that goes through the cliff to connect both sides of the 5th level, redone the bridge from the Citadel to the Hallows, textured some of the other paths in the city, and I have added some gardens on the north side of the Hall of Kings. The leadership team for Minas Tirith has recently decided that public work on Minas Tirith, besides terrain, will be put on hold until we have prepared the project for proper public work.

Every 6 months or so, we check the activity of our lower ranked members to confirm they still intend to pursue a rank on EpicQuestz - the Novice rank is considered a stepping-stone to Builder, and not a permanent position. As such, we have undertaken to demote Novices who have been extremely inactive back to Guest. Should they wish to re-attempt to reach Builder, this will be looked on favourably.
The following players have been demoted from Novice to Guest for extreme inactivity (not joining the server once for 3-12 months).
robobadger, wheremycigs, lotrloz, joeysoldado, roguelightyt, yiannis123, whitedirewolf, arakrsptec, trickey, rikumaru, nervic, daewyn.
Due to compatibility issues between FAWE and PlotSquared on our current version, a number of bugs have arisen regarding the functionality of PlotSquared - the most major of these being the inability to claim plots. If you need a plot claimed, ask a Staff member to do it manually. This is outside our control, but we’ll do our best to fix it as soon as we can.
Mr_Jelle has been promoted to Builder!
This fortnight, I’d like to feature a goblin cave mainly built by MarcelAlKenany, who’s been helped by many other builders. It’s purpose is to server as a team lobby for the EmpireWar LOTR siege server.
