Lothlórien

"[​Frodo] could smell the trees and the trodden grass. He could hear many different notes in the rustle of the leaves overhead, the river murmuring away on his right, and the thin clear voices of birds in the sky. He felt the sun upon his face and hands when they passed through an open glade.

As soon as he set foot upon the far bank of Silverlode a strange feeling had come upon him, and it deepened as he walked on into the Naith: it seemed to him that he had stepped over a bridge of time into a corner of the Elder Days, and was now walking in a world that was no more. In Rivendell there was memory of ancient things; in Lórien the ancient things still lived on in the waking world. Evil had been seen and heard there, sorrow had been known; the Elves feared and distrusted the world outside: wolves were howling on the wood's borders: but on the land of Lórien no shadow lay."

- The Lord of the Rings, Book II, Ch. 6, 'Lothlórien'

Lore

Lothlórien was a forest-kingdom of Silvan Elves on the eastern side of the Misty Mountains. It was considered one of the most beautiful and "elvish" places in Middle-earth during the Third Age, and there grew the only mallorn-trees east of the sea.

Construction

The great mallorn-trees of Lórien were built on a separate world, saved, and used to create the forest in WorldPainter. Afterwards, various parts of the forest were detailed with glades, streams, and waterfalls, and villages and outposts of the Galadhrim were constructed. Caras Galadhon, the city at the heart of the forest, is still under construction.

For anyone who is interested in seeing a detailed timeline of the project's construction, the Lothlórien project thread on our forums provides a good overview.



Lothlórien forms part of a larger project which seeks to recreate Middle-earth in its entirety. Credit goes to MrBanana, Neverlegendary and Fornad for leading this project, and to the entire community of builders for helping to construct it.

Lothlórien can be viewed from above on ArdaCraft's dynmap. There is no download available, but ArdaCraft is a non-whitelisted server which anyone is welcome to come and explore, provided they have installed our modpack first.

All information can be found on our website.
