Once the server is up we should build a Nether Gate and explore The Nether together before we get back to work :biggrin.gif:
It's to bad you can't just dig down into The Nether, it would've made an amazing location for the inside of Mount Doom.
Yeah I was wondering how the Nether would fit in with the server's lotr canon, maybe you could just place a portal at the entrance of the mountain's chamber ?
Also, if anything it should be used for fast transport around the inevitably huge map.
True, well it's something to throw around since Mount Doom is a long time down the road.
And by the time we are there, Minecraft may very well be in the beta, in which case there will be plenty of new things to use for this world
The ideas is to have moria be a very dark and dangerous deserted place, but it has a gate to the nether in it. Therein you can travel much more quickly to parts of the world by venturing into Moria, but it will not be a safe journey.
Ah, moria will take a while, we should do the misty mountains first to properly co-ordinate its exact location (since the mountains start at the far north and go all the way down to Fanghorn/isenguard area)
Wow..... this seems awesome beyond compare. I love playing lotro and the movies and books in general. Great idea you got going here. Any way i could get as a white list I believe I could add a lot knowing my way around and everything.
