History

Pre-founding

Following the departure of Andrew_Gill and his friends from a small and barely documented town named Brones in mid-2011, a new base began in the works; Boatmurdered.[1] The base was christened Boatmurdered after a game story of the same name in Dwarf Fortress, the "Chronicles of Boatmurdered."[1] A video of the original game in Dwarf Fortress can be found here.

Founding

Andrew_Gill and his crew founded the base in September 2011, Andrew's first and final permanent residence.[1] [2] The newly established group wanted to pay homage to the stories of Boatmurdered, so they created their base underground, with construction beginning in September 2011.[1] Construction continued into November. Base documentation began around this time.

Peak of activity

At their peak, Boatmurdered had 20-30 active players at the base.[1] The base featured a mass transit system and a large amount of vines, which were a rare commodity as the item was new to the server.[2] Soon after the founding, the group formed good relations with the Dwarves and the members of Fellowship of the Diamond who were basing at Diamond Town.[1]

During the base's peak in December, the group, along with the Diamond Town residents, the Dwarves, popbob, and other individuals led a large occupation of spawn. Activities included creating lavacasts and bombing out large sections of spawn. The group concentrated their invasion at the spawn area which was on top of a 15x15 obsidian platform at the time. The occupation lasted 4 days before Hausemaster had to intervene to remove the lavacasts so new players could escape as usual.

Decline

Over time, Boatmurdered's residents split up and moved on to new projects. Andrew and others took residents they were suspicious of to a base called Stoneforge while Core768 took other, more trusted members to a base called Rhodes. Stoneforge acted as a decoy to retract attention from the main base, Rhodes. Stoneforge was later insided by CytotoxicTcell.

Boatmurdered was griefed over time. Some notable griefers were Sato86, fubster, xarviar, and Jacktherippa.[1]

Description

Boatmurdered's notable aspects include:

  • Boat Murder District Transit System (BMDTS)
  • Boatmurdered's abundance of vines
  • Offices, apartments/residential units, and a dining hall

Boatmudered was created between a few ravines, about 30 blocks high from the floor of the base to the tops of the ravines.
