Fellowship of the Diamond

From 2builders2tools wiki

The Fellowship of the Diamond was one of the oldest groups of 2b2t. The group tended to keep to themselves, which is why many players forgot about them and didn't even know about them. The group made several bases around spawn. The group had several "fellowships" which were essentially sub-groups of the overall group.

History

This was taken from jamesrustles.com and was posted by KillerCapybara

"The Fellowship of the Diamond was founded by the players KillerCapybara, zhode, serphantking12, and _ironeagle_ when they logged into 2b2t. The first base they set up was called the "700 base" which was 700 blocks away from spawn (duh). It didn't last long and because of that, they decided to move further away.

They made another base called "3000 base" that according to KillerCapybara "lasted us through September and part of October". After their base was found they packed their limited items and moved further away to a place they felt safe

During Mid-October they built the biggest base they ever built called "8000 base". It was an underground base with important things such as a central tree farm, animal pens, and a chest room. It also had some weird shit such as an art gallery, a strip club, and a church dedicated to a sheep that was said to have crashed the server. They had everything underground until they constructed a cobblestone castle outside of their base.

They all based together for a while until bickering boiled out into the group. Because of this, they came to a general agreement that they had to change some things to keep their group from falling apart. It was at this moment that they came up with the name, the "Fellowship of the Diamond", and the group split into fellowships with separate leaders but were still part of the same group and remained friendly with each other.

After the "8000" base, they made multiple other bases, but those bases were griefed shortly after their creation and before they knew it, "8000 base" had been griefed too. They moved on to their last base that was made on a mushroom biome, but by that point most of the members left due to boredom and shortly after zhode and Capybara stopped playing completely.

The story begins in August 2011. My friends and I had been playing Minecraft together for awhile, experimenting with build challenges, adventure maps, and survival maps. While we had been enjoying the game, we were looking for something more to challenge ourselves and play with other people. One of my friends, zhode, had been browsing 4chan when he saw a post about 2b2t.net, a vanilla anarchy Minecraft server with no rules, mods, or admins. It looked perfect; a server that was challenging but still the same vanilla Minecraft experience.

zhode had warned us that the first thing we would see when we logged on would show us exactly what we were getting into. I was the first to log on with him and the first thing I saw was a giant, flaming netherrack swastika above my head and two guys in diamond armor flying above us engaged in PVP combat. That was when we knew we had found our server. Our gang consisted of zhode, serphantking12, _ironeagle_, and myself. Together we sought out to survive and thrive in the most hostile server out there.

The first base we set up was not too impressive and extremely close to spawn. We dubbed it our ‘700 Base’ as it was only 700 blocks away from spawn. This began our very uncreative naming scheme for all of our bases to come. It unsurprisingly did not last very long and we found ourselves moving even further away.

Our next base was one we dubbed our ‘3000 Base.’ It was once again unimpressive but lasted us through September and part of October. Our base was only discovered once another person with the lack of knowledge to move further away from spawn moved in only a couple hundred blocks away. We packed up our limited supplies and decided to move even further away to a place where we felt safe.

In mid-October, we built our biggest base yet. The '8000 Base' was the one we put the most effort into. It wasn't anything amazing and in many ways is extremely confusing and poorly designed. But it was our home so we didn't care. It was an underground base with necessities such as a large central tree farm, animal pens, and chest room along with some goofy stuff like an art gallery, a strip club, and a church dedicated to a sheep that we heard had crashed the server (though I'm not sure if that ever actually happened).

Everything remained underground but eventually we constructed a cobblestone castle outside of our base. This was the only structure that would be above ground at the base for four years.

We based together for awhile and eventually a bit of bickering began to bubble up in the group. After an incident involving me killing _ironeagle_ over some diamonds, we came to a consensus that we had to change some things to keep from falling apart. It was at this point we came up with a name for our group, the 'Fellowship of the Diamond.'

After the '8000 Base', a multitude of other bases were created by the 'Fellowship'. A small town called 'Diamond Town' was created in November 2011 with a population of about 8 players. It's notable for being around at the same time as Boatmurdered and we conducted trade with Andrew_Gil at a small trading post in the nether. We created a skybase which we named 'Laputa' after a flying island in Gulliver's Travels. There was the '9x9 Base' which was made with a member of 'Diamond Town' that didn't last too long. All of those bases were griefed shortly after their creation and in January 2012, the '8000 Base' was finally griefed as well. We moved away to our last base, created in September 2012, on a Mushroom Biome. At this point, most of the original members had gotten bored and stopped playing and it was just zhode and I. In October 2012, we left the server and, aside from stopping by to check on some of the older bases in 2013, stopped playing completely."
