Recreating Tolkien's World in Minecraft

This server is an attempt to make an accurate representation of J.R.R. Tolkien's world of middle-Earth in Minecraft. We are only scaling down the distance, architecturally we are keeping it as close as possible to what has been written about, obviously making changes to keep within the height limit. We are not basing solely on the movies; our Middle-Earth is based on the books themselves, as such, don't expect to recognize everything from the movies.
Please remember that this is not a freebuild server (though there are free-build opportunities, albeit restricted). In large cities (like Bree), you can get a lot that you can build your own home in that is your personal contribution to our server, however, many of our projects are teamwork oriented.
There will be people telling you what to do on this server. You will be expected to follow the orders of all those that have proper authority to do so. Our staff is selected of responsible people, and as such all the staff will know what they are doing and not abuse their power. It has to be this way, because to bring things like Bree Hill, Weathertop, or the Misty Mountains to architectural life we have to have someone with the idea in their head to design it.
Droogs - These are the workforce of the server, they have not attained any special rank on the server or position. This is the rank all new players to the server have.
Members - These are the players who have been on the server for quite some time and who have shown their trustworthiness and willingness to help, and who have also shown their dedication to the server. They have made contributions to the server worthy of being given this new title of respect.
Honored - Honored is the title given to players who have the utmost respect of the community. They have been with the server for quite some time and have shown their dedication to the server though notable contributions that show said dedication. This is something given out, never applied for.
Ranks / Positions
Foreman - Foremen are the backbone of the server. They not only supply players with the building materials they need to construct the world, they organize the populace to work on projects and keep everything going according to plan. They have some of the most direct authority over the players. Failure to obey will result in appropriate behavioral action.
Architect - Architects are the main building and structure designers. They must give orders through a Foreman for directing building. (Any architectural degrees have an almost guaranteed shot at this job, bring it to the attention of Shorvok in-game or in Ventrilo)
Officer - Officers are handpicked members who are among the most trustworthy and are extremely active in the community. They have the most authority, second only to the Kings/Queens. Armed with the latest tools, they handle the policing of the server against griefers and other disturbances of the peace. It's like COPS: Middle-Earth.
King/Queen - Kings/Queens are the leaders of the server. They have proven their extreme dedication to the server and are the most trustworthy people on the server. They have absolute authority over anyone on the server.
