Our friends at ArdaCraft, the preeminent Conquest Reforged building team, have recently completed their latest project, the revamp and recreation of the town Bree from J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth. The completion of the project is a great feat for the ArdaCraft team, and the end result is a testament to their relentless research, planning, and will to chase the cutting-edge of modded building.
Bree is a town in Middle-earth near the Shire, inhabited by men who mingled with hobbits, dwarves, and elves. It was a key location in the early part of the Lord of the Rings saga, serving as a stopping point for Frodo Baggins and his companions on their quest to destroy the One Ring.
The town itself boasts a large number of varied and detailed buildings, each with their own purpose and place within the village. You'll find many great examples of medieval half-timber framed (aka Tudor) buildings that take advantage of the very latest models. Professions as varied as merchant, mason, carpenter and cartwright are represented, and aspects of settlements which many builds often ignore or forget - such as lavoirs (public place for washing clothes), breweries, graveyards and even middens - are included. The lore centerpiece of the village, the Prancing Pony, is built with painstaking accuracy to the books' lore.
Outside of the town lie breathtaking pastoral landscapes and farms, replete with only the best foliage from the Essential Trees pack. With the addition of the Create mod they've pushed their builds even further with an amazing windmill.
