            Erebor, Stronghold of Thror

TO ALL BUILDERS: I'm currently looking for someone who can assist in creating Dwarven statues inspired from The Hobbit movies that I can use here and there inside Erebor, as well as "Thror the Hidden Guardian". If you would like to have your name on this project and contribute with something, please hit me up in my direct messages.

Posted an official thread on Reddit.

This Erebor is set several hundred years after the events of The Lord of the Rings*


The Lonely Mountain, known in Sindarin as Erebor, referred to both a mountain in northern Rhovanion and the subterranean Dwarven city contained within it. In the latter half of the Third Age, it became the greatest city in Middle-earth.

It was located northeast of Mirkwood, near the Grey Mountains, and was the source of the River Running.

In TA 2941, Bilbo Baggins and Thorin's company traveled to the Lonely Mountain to regain the treasure Smaug had stolen. Set into the side of the mountain was a secret door, five feet high and wide enough for three to walk through abreast. Gandalf had managed to obtain the door's key, which fit a keyhole which could be found only when the setting sun and the last moon of autumn (also known as Durin's Day) would mingle their light upon the keyhole. It took many days to find the door, and luckily for Thorin and Company, they did not arrive on Durin's Day so they had plenty of time to enter the mountain.

Smaug was eventually slain, shot out of the sky by a well-aimed arrow at his only weak spot by Bard the Bowman, a man of Lake-town and a descendant of Girion, the last King of Dale. He was later declared king of the restored Kingdom of Dale. Thorin thus reclaimed the mountain, but the elves of Mirkwood and men of Lake-town sought a part of the treasure, which Thorin refused to share. Dáin II Ironfoot came to Thorin's cousin, and the three races almost broke into war, until a host of Orcs and wolves attacked, eager to break the strength of all three kingdoms. Dwarves, elves, and men, together with the Eagles, battled the Orcs in what became known as the Battle of Five Armies. During the battle, Thorin was mortally injured, and the titles of King under the Mountain and King of Durin's Folk passed to Dáin.

Howdy!



Only things planned:

- Erebor's main gate and a good load of interior

- The moorland between Erebor's gate and Dale

- the city of Dale

- the Overlook
- Ravenhill
- The Hidden Entrance



I won't build the entire mountain as it would serve no point or use.

In a couple of months. So it's going to be awhile. I have asked for some help with certain things, but received no answers. So, I'll have to do those things myself, which will take longer.

The download will be available when the build is either complete or if it's abandoned for some reason. I have made backups as well, should anything happen. However, I currently have no intentions leaving this project since I'm so close.

Thank you! Been working hard. I'm looking for help in regards with some of Dale and Dwarven statues, so I hope there are some keen builders willing to help to speed up the process a bit and help deliver a more fleshed out and beautiful project.

Thank you! I've been working on it for quite some time and I was inspired by other Minecraft builders, the movies and the book, of course. This is a mix between a movie version and what I think it would look like.

There's an entire interior coming along as well, so stay tuned for updates for when the download will be released.

All of this terrain was made by hand and with World Edit. No Voxel nor WorldPainter was used in creating this world.
