Events

The Astral Brotherhood is a public building group founded on the legacy of its predecessor, the Astral Order.

History

The group was founded by Joey_Coconut and LordGalvatronMC on August 22nd, 2021. After the fall of all the major groups of the previous years such as Emperium, Vortex Coalition, and Infinity Incursion, the two friends expressed mutual interest in reviving the Astral Order, seeing it as a good opportunity to capitalize on the vacuum of builders seeking a new group. They invited builders from the aforementioned groups, as well as Shortbus Caliphate, Guardsmen, Builders Haven: Remastered and Drain Gang.

The first base

I_tri founded the first base, Vega, with Joey_Coconut on August 22nd 2021. The base housed 34 members until being griefed by The Backstreet Boys on Sept. 6th 2021. After this, the group introduced the Shrine Program and a more concrete vouch system to further scrutinize applicants.

Formative bases

Up to the end of Vega, every member of the group was at the same base. Upon its grief, this changed. Santiago - the second meteorite base - was founded on September 7 2021 by Beardler, and Menegroth - the first Lunarium base - was founded by Joey_Coconut and Galvatron a few days later. Santiago was inactive for the majority of its lifespan, Enchoseon built a significant portion of the base by himself. After its grief, the Shooting Star rank was instituted to de-rank inactive members without fully removing them from the group.

At Menegroth, many players built, especially A97J, Joey_Coconut, LordGalvatronMC, smcz19, and bread_loafs. Activity slowed as burnout set in. Upon Santiago's grief in early October 2021, a new full-group project was started - Astralia. The base started as a quick resource-gathering operation for a few bored Menegroth builders, but quickly became a well-attended group base, inhabited by Enchoseon, crzychris, A97J, SCR3BALL7030 and Joey_Coconut. Intended to host a Halloween event for the group, it was self-griefed along with Gaza and Halicarnassus after the Fifth Column griefed Menegroth.

Following the grief of the Rat House, many of its builders joined the Astral Brotherhood, although many were already members. The Capybara Castle was founded for the fomer Rat House builders, although few (the exception being Aresyl) built at the location between its foundation in October 2021 and its grief in February 2022.

Okab

CirocDrip founded Okab a few days after the destruction of Astralia. It was initially purely for Meteorite members, meaning the base was not particularly active for much of its lifespan. After the base was accidentally leaked through a failed Baritone command, Enchoseon and Joey_Coconut relocated the signboard several thousand blocks away, and invited many higher ranked members of the group. After a building competition and a large group project (the Beard hole), the base exploded in size. It was leaked after Redstoner logged onto a group member's account using the Log4j exploit, and was subsequently griefed by BIKMUNNI.

Nautilus

Nautilus was founded in October 2021 by Joey_Coconut after the grief of Menegroth. The members build a large elliptical drain there over the course over the next few months until it was self-griefed in January 2022.

Poppy Town

Astral came to the Poppy Town on January 2nd, 2022 after the grief of Okab. The members of the group build a wide variety of structures at the base over the month Astral built there. It was griefed by the Fifth Column and the builders of the base on February 2nd, 2022.
