What do you like the most about GoT/ASoIaF?
The thing I like most about ASoIaF are the intrigues and courtly politics and how Tyrion outsmarts everyone.

What is your favorite build on our server?
My favourite castle is Highgarden. I like how it is structured in several small Yards each with its own beautiful garden. Also the silhouette of the castle is really well done.
My favourite town is probably Wickenden. Especially the view from the north side with it’s gardens and oriel window is quite impressive.

Why do you want to join our server?
I always found it frustrating that I couldn't finish any large scale projects since I don’t know anyone building in Minecraft. Working with the additional block and texture pack is also very interesting and I would like to contribute to this amazing project.

Hi Arton,
Thanks for completing this application and for your patience while we found the time to take a look.

Nice work with replicating the application house, as I hope you can tell we try to put as much detail and signs of life as we can into our houses. Hopefully through this application process you'll see how this approach is carried across our different projects and styles.

You're off to a good start and I'm looking forward to seeing what you make next. For your first challenge build, please make a Low Class Farmer's house in the style of /warp hawthornetown and share screenshots of it in this thread (an easy way to do it is upload them imgur.com and share the link). Take note of commonalities between the houses (block mix, shape of roof, size of house, interior blocks, attic spaces, mezzanine platforms) and make a house that would fit into the Hawthorne town. It would be great if you could add a yard to it too.

If you haven't already, you can take a look at the Basic Building Guide for some more tips.

Please take your time to study the style in detail, and make sure to ask if you have any questions on the above feedback or the hawthornetown style.

Good luck!

Hey,
here is my Low Class Farmer in the Hawthorne town style.
Since to my understanding fence windows are outdated I used 1,5 block high windows instead. I've heared that thatch overhangs on gabels aren't used anymore. But because I think omitting them would singnificantly alter the style I have left them.
I'm looking foreward to your feedback.

Also I'm afraid the specific /warp hawthornetown dosen't exist anymore.

Hey Arton,
Excellent work with this Hawthorne house. Not only have you nailed the style (and correctly identified some of its slightly outdated elements), but you've added a great amount of detail too. The shape of the yard, washing line, all lots of nice little things.

For your next challenge, please build a middle class professional house in the style of /warp hgtown. Houses in large towns will usually have a profession on their on the ground floor and residence upstairs, take a look at the finished houses in the area for inspiration, and give the house some kind of profession that would make sense in Highgarden (e.g. carpenter/wine merchant/tailor/blacksmith) and a yard would be great as well. Take note of the shape of the roof, how we use stairs to create the effect of floorboards and what kind of blocks would suit a middle class house (nothing too lavish).

Looking forward to seeing your work!

Hey,
here is my middle class Highgarden build. For the profession I've chosen a baker. I have also roughly marked the plots of the neighbouring houses.
I am looking foreward to your feedback.

Hey Arton,
Great work with this Highgarden house, I'm a fan of all the small details you've added and how your choice of interior elements and layout.

I think at this point you'll learn more from being an actual builder, so consider yourself approved!

Please make sure to read the New Builder guide here: http://westeroscraft.wikia.com/wiki/Newbie_guide

The next step is to make a probation thread in the Probation Forum. You can start building at any open locations on the server - you can find a list of these at /warp build, although it's sometimes outdated, so I would also recommend just asking people in-game and checking the forums for recent project happenings. You can also toggle open plot markers on the dynmap mc.westeroscraft.com

A probie leader should post on your thread within a week or so and continue to give you constructive feedback on your houses for the next month (and help be your entry point into the server community in general), although as sometimes the probie leaders are busy IRL you may need to be patient while they find the time to respond to you. But message me again if a probie leader hasn't contacted you within two weeks, or if they're taking a while to respond. I would also encourage you to seek feedback from project leaders and other builders/mods. At the end, you'll be made full builder assuming everything goes smoothly.

I'd suggest you also start thinking about what projects you might like to work on, we encourage new builders to first work on "mini-projects" which are small one off areas of other projects, e.g. a hamlet, mill, quarry, and flagged as open for mini-apps by the project leader. Once you've done a few of these you'll be able to apply for a full project.

Make sure to stay in touch and let us know if you're losing interest, not finding enough work to do, or if there's any issues with the probation.

Welcome aboard and I'll see you in Westeros!
