The Grey Havens


"And when they had passed from the Shire, going about the south skirts of the White Downs, they came to the Far Downs, and to the Towers, and looked on the distant Sea; and so they rode down at last to Mithlond, to the Grey Havens in the long firth of Lune.

As they came to the gates Círdan the Shipwright came forth to greet them. Very tall he was, and his beard was long, and he was grey and old, save that his eyes were keen as stars; and he looked at them and bowed, and said: ‘All is now ready.’"

- LotR, Book VI, Ch. 9: "The Grey Havens"



Lore

This is ArdaCraft's recreation of the Grey Havens (also known as Mithlond), an elven seaport on the Gulf of Lune at the mouth of the River Lhûn, to the west of the Shire. By the time of The Lord of the Rings, it had been continuously inhabited for six thousand years, and had played a central role in many parts of Middle-earth's long history.

Construction

The Grey Havens are, by far, ArdaCraft's largest city yet. Owing to the slow but constant departure of Elves from Middle-earth, only around half of the houses are inhabited, and the rest are either entirely abandoned or simply empty. We have made sure that Mithlond would function as a real city, and so all professions and trades that would be required are represented.

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



The Grey Havens form part of a larger project which seeks to recreate Middle-earth in its entirety. Credit goes to wheellee, Ytsen, Hearthseeker, daktubalan, and kingorrik for leading this project at various points, and to the entire community of builders for helping out.

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

Too bad there's no download, this is stunning!

Just wondering, would the server give me an .obj so I could render it?

Renders don't really work with our builds as they rely on modblocks and connected textures.

Ah, metadata.

Darn, I was hoping for some practice.

No, not metadata - we're not on 1.7.10. We have our own mod which adds new blocks entirely.
