I decided two things: first, if it is understandable, abbreviations are acceptable, and second, that "y" is not a vowel.
Hence I deliver: "A Haiku in Cobalt"
EDIT: Apparently the myth has plied Cobalt away!

How come there are close to no site owners who understand this simple fact?

Mind of Mike also has a beginners' guide to the mod, which is really helpful. You can watch it below:
About the Mod
The Lord of the Rings Mod is a huge expansion for Minecraft that aims to add the world of Middle-earth into the game. This will include content from J. R. R. Tolkien's most famous work, The Lord of the Rings, and from other related tales such as The Hobbit and The Silmarillion.
The mod has been in development since December 2012, with a great amount of planned features yet to come in the future. New updates are published frequently - usually every couple of months.
If you are interested in following the progress of the mod, go to our Facebook page, where we showcase new content for upcoming updates. You can also give feedback there, and submit suggestions. Please read the FAQ before submitting a suggestion!
The official wiki is the place to go if you want to learn about the mod and its contents, or find a server to play on. You can also post suggestions, bug reports, and discuss all sort of things on the wiki forums.
The main features in the mod so far are:
And some of the main planned features still to come in future updates:
For a more in-depth and comprehensive summary of the mod's features, please see this Mod Overview article on the mod's wiki. Also check out the Middle-earth Gameplay Guide, and the Building Tips page if you are so inclined.

Warning: If you are running the mod on a Cauldron (MCPC+) server, you may experience unexpected bugs, crashes or other failures that are not this mod's fault. Please see here for an explanation of why it is not this mod's fault, and why I cannot really do anything to fix it.

The Ranger Malvegil is developing a plugin for Not Enough Items (NEI) for use with the Lord of the Rings Mod, that shows crafting recipes on Middle-earth tables, barrel brewing recipes, and other recipes from the mod. Thanks, Malvegil!
You can find the forum thread for this plugin here, with downloads and information.
Note that this plugin is not affiliated with the LOTR mod: you should report any problems, crashes, etc. to them, not to us.
Some people have expressed interest in donating to the mod, so if you want to donate, here are some fine buttons with which to do so.
TheAtlanticCraft's Fellowship modpack includes the Lord of the Rings Mod along with over 50 other mods, and they have dedicated public servers running the pack.The link goes to their Minecraft Forums thread which has all the links and information you should need to download and install the modpack. Please note that feedback/bug reports/other issues concerning the Fellowship modpack should be discussed on their forums and websites, and not on this forum post.
If you want to create and publish your own modpack including the mod, you don't need to ask for my permission, but you must credit me as the author of this mod and provide a link to this post. It's only fair!
(If the modpack is just for private use, i.e. it won't be posted anywhere for the public to use - such as for your own use and a small group of friends on a private server - there's no need to do that.)
