COVID-2147 was a Spawn Mason group base. The base was founded on March 9, 2020, as a place for members to build during the quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic The main base area consisted of a rustic city atop a terraced landscape.
The base was griefed on May 30, 2020.
The location for COVID-2147 was found by NickHasCancer. He cites the reason for creating this base and its style inspiration was to create a 'sister base' to Vulcatavio, a 2017 early Spawn Mason base.
The first month of the base saw the ground terraformed into terraces, and the construction of houses and buildings, including the on-site dupe stash.
Notable builds included a mountain by NickHasCancer, a members totem pole by Breithan, the missing texture cube by _m_o_t_h_r_a_, the COVID-2147 dance hall by D_loaded and the central basin dug by NickHasCancer and Todarac. The main city buildings by D_loaded were rustic townhouses, primarily using a block palette of spruce, terracotta, stone variants, and quartz. The underground city buildings, also by D_loaded, were constructed of stone variants and dark prismarine. Buildings at the base were interspersed with gardens and hidden alleyways.
Controversy and grief
After a plan was revealed involving HermeticLock attempting to obtain ownership of the Spawn Masons once more and the proposal to drive out a number of members, HermeticLock renounced his brotherhood and left the Spawn Masons in May. He went on to make a new group called the Spawn Masons, later renamed to the Guardsmen.
In June, a FitMC video was uploaded, claiming that Herm had conspired to symbolically destroy the Masons by griefing their group base. D_loaded, a main builder and friend of Herm, reluctantly agreed to join in the griefing, unbeknownst to the other builders at the base. Before the griefing began, D_loaded edited his signs around the base to reflect the new name he had decided for it without consulting the members to make it seem like he was doing all the work: DonFuer 18.
