The EpicQuestz Newsletter
Issue 39 - 03 January 2021
Hope you all had (or are still having) a wonderful winter break! If you haven’t taken a winter holiday, tough luck. Not like you can go very far anyway, what with current border restrictions. Not so on EpicQuestz! We’ll be going everywhere from Aldburg to Hobbiton, and without further ado, I will jump right in.
“Progress has slowed a little over the festive season, understandably. Recently @the_pharaohs_cat completed the gatehouse to the castle, and a few other natural things have been tweaked around the map. I expect progress will ramp up again in the coming month.”
“Some good progress has been made adding finishing touches to Grimslade. Once we’ve dealt with the pasture and meadowland, as well as finishing off the major paths, the map should be ready for release.”
Project Leader: @Enoshade
“After Grimslade terrain completion, not much has happened. I have done some minor edits to the terrain in-game, and plan to keep working on Dunharrow as well as the entirety of Southern Rohan in the foreseable future.”
@LimeeFox has been hard at work remaking the spawn, which you can see a screenshot of at the top of the newsletter. Furthermore, there have been some additions to the Renders and Screenshots thread by me and Tobberz - take a look here.
Much like with the other projects, work has slowed down during the festive season, so there is not much to say about server development. But we have successfully transitioned into 2021, and there is plenty of time to make this year more memorable than the last.
This time, I would like to feature @AJarOfPeanutButter’s plot. It shows his take on Hobbiton, and you can take a look over at
/plot tp PeanutButter_Jar 2. It should be floating around somewhere above the very slightly anachronistic Fort de Vaux (feel free to murder me if I got the wrong fort).
It has been fun commandeering the newsletter this time around, though I am afraid that I won’t have much time to do so again for a while to come. Nevertheless, the other writers are competent enough (maybe), and they should be able to fill the gaping hole in your souls.

What was the curse that Morgoth set upon Húrin Thalion and his children?
What members enjoyed most last year:
‘I have enjoyed watching Steal do most of everything and code a lot’
@raarmaarwaar, on the other hand, says that he enjoyed leading Setton, as well as hosting a build competition.
It would’ve been nice to get a few more replies, but that is pretty much it. Personally, I liked spending days on end finishing Grimslade’s terrain, as well as messing around in VC with Steal and Fox.
