The DonFuerian Empire (or simply DonFuer) is an ideological group that was founded by D_loaded. DonFuer is both the name of the group, and its series of flagship bases. The group works to promote community, building, and builders all across 2b2t. It's one of the only major groups on 2b2t to have been founded outside of the server. As of 2020, DonFuer has been revived, building several bases and recruiting new members.

EtymologyThe name "DonFuer" was supposed to be a German translation of the phrase "Father's Gift." Although the translation was faulty, the name stuck. The name is used both for the group and its series of flagship bases. It is also an anagram of the word "Founder".
The group has existed since August 2013, and has spread its influence across different servers. It has had 27+ different Capital Cities throughout a myriad of Minecraft servers, particularly anarchy or faction servers. It was brought to 2b2t by The Vortex Coalition. The Supreme Leader of VoCo, Coltsnid, had appointed HermeticLock as an executive member of the group. Herm was friends with D_loaded and suggested to Coltsnid that they recruit him into VoCo to build a large city for the group. Colt went with Herm to the 9th DonFuer on another server, and convinced D_loaded to join VoCo and build a city on 2b2t.
The tenth city was founded on December 11, 2016. It stood for just over one month until its coordinates were leaked by Coltsnid on January 14, 2017, due to the group's claim to be responsible for "The Fall of VoCo". 30 minutes later, Babbaj arrived at the city and attacked, turning the city into ruin. The 11th city was abandoned before completion because Hermeticlock was starting the SpawnMasons. The 12th DonFuer was ended on July 10th, and griefed on 9/11, along with Don Meer, Don Hoggal, and Los Garr by Llane. Later on, D_loaded ended up in some drama with the Sixth Incursion, prompting him to have to leave 2b2t, and take the group with him.
DonFuer continued on other servers, until March of 2020, when D_loaded reconciled with most of the people from then and rejoined the SpawnMasons. He joined the base COVID-2147 in April 2020 which he built much of, until its grief in May 2020, when he began calling it DonFuer 18. The grief was controversial due to it being a staged event between HermeticLock and D_loaded to get DonFuer into a FitMC video, without consultation with base members.
After DonFuer returned to 2b2t in 2020, back from a hiatus, a new spawnbase was created. It was leaked by fr1kin within a span of a few days. A new oriental themed base, Karakorum, was built over the span of three weeks, from September 16, 2020, to October 9, 2020. It was found using a world-downloader coordinate exploit where region files remained of the base when another download of a different base was shared. It was griefed by the Backstreet Boys, but not before FamilyPumpkin6 saved most of the items there and self-griefed before BSB could arrive.
DonFuer 20 was founded on October 27, 2020, and lasted until March 13, 2021, It was the largest DonFuer up to that point, and featured a large castle with a netherrack roof.
After the destruction of Donfuer 20, DonFuer 21 was founded much farther out and had a focus on more modern buildings. It was griefed on June 1, 2021, by Team Rocket.
Its members (the DonFuerians) are able to participate in city functions without worrying about other groups.
In February of 2023, Donfuer would take responsibility for the grief of the Bing Bong Connect 4 event. This would set into motion a swift and overwhelming amount of backlash, leading to almost every base being griefed and the destruction of the main Donfuer stash. Following this event, Donfuer went private and the group underwent massive internal changes, leading to the purging of 4/5ths of their membership. While this largely consisted of inactive players, many active builders were also purged in this fashion. Donfuer would retire the Donfuer Rangers model, instead switching to a vouching system for new members.
DonFuer has several custom-made hacked clients, however, many of these are for non 1.12.2 versions. The latest update to these clients was by dragonworm, updating them to 1.15.2.
DonFuer has a self-governing division named the "Donfuer Rangers" through which it vets new recruits, as well as conducts its various spawn activities. The idea was partially inspired by the Spawnmason's spawn division. The DonFuer Rangers was started in Early December 2020 by aodrael and D_loaded. Aodrael was removed after drama with several members and D_loaded. It was then led by iAmZeiss after his group, Fate was merged into the spawn rangers.
Ranks and Members
Man at Arms
The Donfuerian Oath
When initiating new members into Donfuer at Man at Arms rank, members are required to take the Donfuerian Oath.
This oath was historically guarded as a secret, until it was leaked in February of 2023 by Phosph0lipid.
The oath is as follows:
|I, <<Member Name>>, hereby swear loyalty to Donfuer.
To obey its rules and policies,
To protect its city and its long legacy across many servers.
Pledging to be upright and honorable in all my ways,
Never griefing or fighting another Donfuerian,
Always ready to help one in need.
As it is said, so it shall be.
DonFuer is also known for hosting semi-public building contests with 2b2t players. The group livestreams the contests on its YouTube channel. Contestants usually build for an hour and a half, and compete for various prizes such as priority-queue or discord nitro. They also sometimes feature well known community members such as Hermeticlock, FastVincent1 and JacktheRippa as guest hosts.
Donfuer has had many cities over the years on 2b2t. If you would like to visit them for yourself, you can visit the completed bases on the Archive server (thearchive.world), or download them here.
- HermeticLock created an anarchy server with the IP anarchyheros.mcph.co, which DonFuer was incredibly powerful on due to Herm abusing op. Much of DonFuer's history was spent there, and most of D's YouTube content takes place on that server.
- D_loaded has since deleted his YouTube channel, later replacing it.
- In 2020, Fit made a video addressing DonFuer. The attention that the group received pushed the new DonFuer to go public and announce its existence to the world
- DonFuer itself is now over 9 years old.
