"Today the most peculiar thing happened.
As I was sitting by the portal to the underworld, as I so
often do; a human appeared. I hardly believe it
myself, that portal was closed to humanity
centuries ago. The disturbances in the lines
between dimensions must be the reason.

The first law of Galadrïel, is that no human may set foot on
the island. They are to stay on their tradeship, as to not 
contaminate the enviroment, as it happened with
the forests of the underworld. But can you
blame this human for his unfortunate encounter with
spontaneous rifts? 
A question I had to bring before our
Queen, an action that would mean leading
this human through half of our city.

Needless to say he marveled at our wonders, I figure
it have been quite a while since humans have
seen true beauty, as we took that with us when we left.

As if he were a child, who had just recently earned the
gift of speech, he kept asking one question after the other.
Against better judgement I found myself confiding him in
the history of our world. How we rose our home into the clouds
to protect our treasure. The orb of life, daughter of our sun, and source
of all of our magic. It is knownledge reserved for elves, but
the human's curiosity was without bounds, and I, as the teacher I am,
could not help it.
I taught him about our heroes, whose statues stood mighty along
our path. Well; I may have walked a detour to prolong my lesson, but
the time came where we reached the great throne of Galadrïel. 
The queen was, as predicted, none to happy with the presence of this human;
yet see saw the sense in my words, and allowed him to leave the way
he came; through the portal, by help of our mages.

He had already seen too much to leave with the shipworkers, he could
spark a curiosity as strong as his own in them.

This event reminded me that not all humans are mindless
destroyers of our forests, maybe we should consider
reestablishing some more contact with them?
Probably just a foolish thought from an old elf.

Galadrïel is an elven town, hidden from the remaining world, in order to preserve the small earthly sun that keep the magical forests of Galadrïel alive. The project was made by team Solari over the course of 3 weeks. And no, ofc the lore wasn't made up just to connect whatever we were building, what would even make you think that?

Your download link is dead. Please fix!
Hi Solari! I'm an editor of China.
I've found your new project [h1]Galadrïel [Solari HitC Contest Entry][/h1]. It's really a nice job.
Therefore I'm here to ask if I could repost your project to our website MCBBS:www.mcbbs.net/forum.php.
However, due to the fact that our country has blocked a lot of foreign websites.
So could you allow us create a new Chinese downlink.
I will list your name and the original website clearly.

I would like to feature you for next week's best minecraft project show. May I use a portion of your video for your part of the feature? I will credit you in the video and link to this project and the video itself.

Btw, as last time, the credit should go to Team Solari, and not Dawn ^^ I know the multi PMC account sometimes causes some confusion ;D Thanks for showcasing our build ;D

I mean that Dawn is a server; Solari is a team working off that server; it's needlesly complicated, but thats how things ended ;P Solari is behind most submissions on this accountm except if its a server build of sorts.

Saw your vid now, so team dawn-creative is wrong; but its no biggie pal. Im just happy you featured us. Great job as always ;D

I put Solari in the description. Glad you explained this, I won't make this mistake again (because you will probably be featured in the future too). :)

Not very worthy for placement in my opinion. This looks lke there was 1% effort put into it. Absolutlely cringe worthy. If I wanted to see some cows, I would go to a farm. This is PMC ffs. 0/10 for me.

It's not only those megabuilds (usually with no interiors, a lack of depth and lots of repetition) that take effort to build. This build doesn't contain any of that, but dozens of smaller houses (each with a unique exterior and interior design), trees, lots of small organics, underground tunnels, a ship, etc. We as a team have experienced again and again that making a build that doesn't have some massive structure as main focus is just as challenging and time-consuming, and probably even more difficult. I believe we have made a great map which will hopefully be a contender for one of the top ranks. Of course this way of building a contest entry is not for everyone. We can take criticism. You have your opinion, we have ours, and we respect that. But I do have to say that I find your way of criticizing our work is a bit shortsighted and even offensive. If you decide to criticize other people's work, please do that by giving constructive criticism, or at the very least comment in a polite way.

Galadriel is the most well known elf queen ever, not a place. Tolkien would be ashamed of you ripping his genioulsy named characters and turning them into dirt and stone.

Galadriel is also the elven word for light. Thats the reason for the name, not mrs. Galadriel.
 As im not the greatest lotrk fan (blasphemy?), i didn't actually know it was her name when it was firat suggested to me :p

Learns something new every day :) either way, Galadriel was by no means ment as athef of 'her', but rather a nod to Tolkiens version of elvish.

Amazing work guys but the green and yellow houses with cobble dont look so nice maybe because of no textures.
