In early 2011, Camp Facepunch served as one of the inaugural installations of the Facepunch Republic, marking its place as one of the pioneering Facepunch Bases.

History

Constructed to accommodate the recently arrived Facepunch residents, it was established sometime in late April 2011, potentially as late as April 27, 2011. On April 28, during the infamous "Greyskull's Stand" event, the base fell victim to an attack and extensive vandalism perpetrated by mweorz, who utilized a hacked client. Mweorz was, in fact, the alternate account of Luke2thebun, a 4channer who had successfully infiltrated the Republic's ranks. This devastating assault would go down in history as the pivotal moment that ignited the Facepunch War.

  Honestly, it was a bad idea setting up there anyway. It was too close to spawn.

At present, it rests ensconced within a full-fledged lavacast, perched atop a section of the wither cave that has been entirely inundated with water, leaving it vulnerable to the possibility of complete submersion.

Geography

It was unknowingly going to be located on the 42 Z-Axis Road (Which itself was created by xcc2) after xcc2 made a spawn road tunneling through it. The base was also located at X:500 Z:42.

Architecture

It was made using 8 towers of cobblestone connected by walls. In 2012, it was restored by DeadDreamer.
