"In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit."

With these words scribbled on the back of a student's exam paper, the English writer and professor J.R.R. Tolkien began a series of books which have enthralled millions and contain within their pages the greatest fantasy universe ever created.

Now, a team of builders of all nationalities and ages, united by their love for Tolkien's works, have embarked on a singularly ambitious project - to recreate Tolkien's Middle-earth at a scale and level of detail never before seen in any video game.

We have combined our knowledge, not only of building, but of geology, botany, history - and of course - Tolkien's every word and letter to ensure that this project surpasses any other of its kind.

We began our recreation in the place where Tolkien's most famous two books both begin - the Shire.

However, we have since moved on to larger projects -

- and we need your help to build them!


Official Website

ArdaCraft is a modded Forge server with its own custom resource pack. As intimidating as this may sound, we have a custom launcher which can be found on the 'Modpack' tab on our website. Follow the simple instructions, and you will be able to log in to our build server at mc.ardacraft.me.

New players will not be able to build, but are free to explore and chat with the members of our community. If you feel that you are able and willing to help us with this project, we have a Builder Application form on our forums.

ArdaCraft may seem daunting to people viewing our images of builds or watching the showcase videos, but anyone can log in, apply, and contribute to the project. Whether it is by building an elven house, carving out a dwarven hall, or even digging a stream, any player with enough motivation can help us out!

Our members are made by a group from all background and nationalities with ages ranging from 13 to members in their thirties and forties. To put it simply - ArdaCraft is a server made by fans of Tolkien that can be enjoyed by everyone.

There is always plenty to do, so we hope to see you on!

It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.
