When you first join our server, you will have the rank of Gaijin. This rank is given to all visitors of the Shire and people logging on for the first time.
In order to rank up to obtain permission to build, you must apply for membership. This is done by:
1: Creating an account on our forums at www.shirecraft.us/forums (make sure to confirm the account via the confirmation email you will receive upon creating it)
2: Once you've confirmed your account, create a post in the "Join Us" section of the forums
3: When writing your application, please include your age, country and what you hope to bring to The Shire and anything else you believe will positively support your application.
If a staff member chooses to accept your application, then congratulations! Here's the information you need to get going:
You can now build in our "Tyrule" world (command: /warp Tyrule) where you'll find everything you need to show us your style and skill level and hopefully join us in the main world.
Treat this like an audition: if we like what you create, then you'll be able to do even more on the server. For a taste of what you get when you rank up, please visit https://shirecraft.us/new-yeoman
Important information about getting started:
- All your materials will be under the Tyrule spawn. To get to the materials area, follow the "yellow brick road." Just right click the "free" signs.
- All tools and enchantments can be found in one of the spawn corners. Signs will lead you there. Just right click the signs for the tools and then with the tool equipped, right click the enchantment signs
- You can be assigned a plot by doing /plot auto and then /plot home to get to it
- Your tyrule build does not have to be huge or elaborate. Just something that gives us an idea of your style and skill level
Please feel free to ask us any questions either on the forums or in game. We're happy to help. And if you need assistance from a staff member, we're the folks with either blue or gold titles.
If you haven't logged onto the server yet, you'll have to ask a staff member for your Tyrule ranking when you log on for the first time. If you've already logged onto the server, your Tyrule ranking should appear shortly.
