The Imperials are a multi-server group that plays 2b2t, 2b2t clones, and other games. The Imperials are based on the Roman Republic and Imperials from The Elder Scrolls franchise.

History

Imperial Empire Banner

The Imperials were founded in 2016, while they themselves claim to have been founded back in 2014. There are no sources that show Imperials being active before the surge of popularity 2b2t gained after June 1st 2016. The group saw a large boost of activity when MrCK10 took over the Imperials in 2018. He made the Imperials into a temporary democracy in 2019 which let DavidPrydain become the next emperor of the Imperials. David focused on creating good relationships with other groups in this time period. After he was Emperor Basileus Constantine, who was later overthrown by MrCK10 under the pseudonym Gamerman. MrCK10 made the Imperials on 2b2t reach 100 members and the entire group as a whole 400 members, which was the largest ever seen in Imperials. However, MrCK10 disbanded the Empire and adopted an entirely new system that would abolish the Empire, and emperors entirely.

DavidPrydain took the group back to an empire for a few months in August September and October, but was kicked after being forced to take over by an internal group calling themselves 'The republicans'. This group was led by MrCK10 but was removed by scooby, DavidPrydain and Notaufred in December 2020 after they went inactive, infighting for leadership and doxxing. After which Jan became the next emperor, which is now agreed upon emperor elections that are held once every year on 9th September to honor DavidPrydain after being treated wrongly by past members.

The Imperials operate a wiki that catalogues their history along with claims of activity dating back to 2014.

Senate

Proposals

Proposals in the Imperial Senate are relatively simple:

1. Someone makes a Proposal in #proposals (a channel in the group's Discord server), giving clear information on the aim of the proposal and its advantages.

2. The proposal is discussed within the senate chat, with senate members giving their opinion on the proposal and weighing the advantages and disadvantages.

3. Senators can vote by reacting to the question with an Up or Down emoji. This lasts a certain amount of time, the time is not usually consistent and voting tends to end when there is a consensus on the proposal. If there isn't a consensus the emperor will make the final decision

4. If the proposal is passed it will be acted upon by high ranks who have the power to do so.

Veto

Only the emperor can veto proposals. Once a proposal is vetoed it's no longer discussed and can't be suggested again unless allowed by the emperor.

Structure

High Ranks

High ranks describe ranks that manage the group as a whole rather than individual branches. This is primarily done through the senate.

  • Emperor: The emperor manages the branches and the group across the board. Usually the decision of the emperor is final, however other high ranks within branches can discuss an issue with the emperor and raise concerns. The emperor also ensures that internal conflicts don't develop between high ranked members and even branches.
  • Elder Council: Elder Councils have access to all leadership chats across branches, they help across an number of branches and are usually trusted with admin across different branches. Their role also acts as counter balance to the emperor ensuring that the emperor ultimately docent have free reign across the group.
  • Praetor: Praetors can advise and oversee their individual branch, praetors act to ensure that the centurion that precedes them is capable of running the branch. Usually by advising the centurion and helping organise bases and events.
  • Advisor: Advises the emperor and leadership on decisions, doesn't necessarily play the server but has shown experience in branch management usually from different branches.

Server Ranks

Server ranks describe ranks within a specific branch and relate to management of that branch only. The ranks have sub divisions within them. Centurion - Tribune is considered leadership. Preafect and Quaestor are considered Mid ranks. Auxiliary and Recruit are considered Low ranks.

  • Centurion: The governor of the server, all bases and affairs on the server are managed by him. New centurions are typically overlooked by a preator.
  • Optio: Optio is a distinguished legate, showing exceptional dedication to the group, this rank is usually given as a designation of the next centurion. With most Optios becoming centurion after a centurion retires or get promoted. For this reason there is only one Optio.
  • Legate: Legates are leaders within the group, they have a say on decisions and the direction the group takes. Legates also manage bases and orginise events for the group.
  • Tribune: Tribune acts as a trial rank of leadership, ussally tribune is given to active members of the group who aspire to lead it. As such tribunes are expect to help out in events and bases. Sometimes even organising their own ones.
  • Prefect : Prefect primarily act as base managers, their role is to set up new recruit bases and oversee them. They also sometimes managed Mid rank bases
  • Quaestor: Quaestors are members who have shown above average activity within the group
  • Auxiliary: Auxiliaries are members which have shown some activity at recruit bases.
  • Recruit: Members which have passed the application process.

Events

Imperial Sky

Originally suggested by the player penisballs22, the project was comprised of just over 1 million obsidian and was built in the North West quadrant to the left of the tip of the Spawn Mason logo. A discord server was made on the 16th October 2021 and PIS V1 was planned and constructed over the months of October and November of 2021.

The project took just over a month to build and the top builders were Toska at 310,000 blocks placed and Ryguy at 140,000 blocks placed. The top ender chest miners were Super and Toska who mined the vast majority of the ender chests.





Crisis of December 2021

In December 2021, significant upheavals befell the Imperials. A contentious figure, National Socialist Super (MaxRockatasky), was ousted from 2B Centurian following a series of security breaches attributed to his missteps. Super's association with mrck10, a controversial figure both within the Imperials and on 2b2t, had already cast a shadow of suspicion over him among many Imperial members. This relationship further strained his position within the group. Although Super was initially designated Praetor and meant to serve in an advisory role, his evident thirst for power coupled with continuous errors led to the stripping of his Discord permissions. In a heightened state of frustration, he confronted Tanzinator, a respected figure within the Imperials, demanding elevated access rights. Tanzinator, however, stood his ground, urging Super to work to regain trust. The tensions escalated when Super threatened to divulge the coordinates of key Imperial assets. Though his threats resulted in only limited damages, they were revealing of his intentions.

The infiltration of Aqueous 2 by Orsond, who tried to pin blame using deceptive evidence, became another point of concern. Additionally, Super's attempt to sabotage the Imperial Discord server was fortunately thwarted by the timely intervention of Jesse. In the aftermath of this tumult, the Imperials consolidated their ranks, rallying under the leadership of Toska and ACAB Michael. Both, having previously served as Optios, now assume the roles of Centurions. Optimistic about a prosperous and unified future, the Imperials of 2b recognized the need to distance themselves from divisive figures like Super, especially given his affiliations with the likes of mrck10. This chapter serves as a reminder that to build a brighter future, one sometimes must navigate through tumultuous times.

Bases

Imperatoria 23 Render by Toska

Imperatoria 23

Imperatoria 23 was founded on the 20th of January 2022. It acted as a high rank base throughout its short lifespan and was home to a number of members, namely: Toska, HenkieMC, Bematt, Durkaa, MrIcantSleep, lukent, Jesse, AiwaSound and hwe.

The base also saw extensive use of BIKMUNNI's Armour stand and dispenser dupe. Eventually the base had grown a sizable stash of duped armour, which was then decided to be moved to a more secure location. However the base would end up getting griefed by hwe due to a drama surrounding him supposedly blackmailing a minor for explicit images, and him potentially being kicked. Hwe would grief the base during mid February 2022.

Pernath Render by Nigerianprince

Pernath

Pernath was founded approximately around February 2022, the base originally was a Kingdom of Terrasen base, however due to very close cooperation between the two groups and complete overlap in members it would act as the Imperial high rank base in mid 2022. The base was founded by Amiaoghg and LeRoyGaston, however the base was primarily built by Imperial high ranks, namely Nigerianprince, TxsizeCreations and Choza_Akamichi. The base had a number of builds, Nigerians sword, Nigerians church, Amias square and a number of houses which were built by Amia and Nigerian and Choza. The base was last worked on in late August this is due to an insiding drama which surrounded Imps during mid to late 2022.

A number of Imp bases were being leaked on the 2b2t reddit by one account. Some of the posts' titles implied the insider was a higher ranked member, as they commented on Sleepyfemboy's promotion to Optio, along with the large number of bases that were being leaked. After Redfort was leaked, an internal investigation occurred within the group. Eventually MaxRockatasky had presented solid evidence exposing the owner of the reddit account to be Amiaoghg. After finding out about this, Nigerianprince and Killaqueen would proceed to steal the stash at the base and then grief it around September 28th 2022 along with nuking the Terrasen discord.[1]

Freedom

Freedom render by Nigerianprince

Freedom was started on the 3rd of September 2022 by BGA as a recruit base, with the theme being a mediaeval base. BGA set out clear rules about the functioning of this base, urging members not to use schematics and dictating what and where members can and can't build. This was rather unpopular with recruits which were added to the base, which ultimately led to a number of minor disputes. Despite this the base continued to grow with some day to day activity. Eventually the base would ultimately slow down due to a number of Midranks being moved to Redfort, leaving inactive recruits to build at the base. After the grief of Redfort the Mid Ranks would return to Freedom, the base would be revived with BGA getting replaced by KommunistKuba as the base manager. However a day later Nigerian had found out that the base was compromised, so he proceeded to self greif it on the 11th of October 2022.

Redfort

Redfort
Spawnfort render by Nigerianprince

Redfort was founded by TXsizeCreations on the 12th of September 2022, the aim of the base was to get all the good, trusted and active members of the Imperials to focus on one base for a month.The base would then be uploaded to the archive and advertised in order to attract builders over to the group. Initially the idea worked, with substantial activity at the base however on the third day of the bases founding it was leaked on reddit. The post was then deleted an hour later. This caused a stir within the group with concerns about insiding and also concerns about the future of the base. Nigerian proposed continuing the base, arguing that no one saw the reddit post and that the base could still be completed. Whilst Tx aruged that the base was entirely compromised. TX would announce his intention to grief the base to KommunistKuba who has actively built at the base since its founding. KommunistKuba would advise TX to message Choza_Akamichi (another active builder at the base) and get his consent for the grief. This was never done. Nigerian upon hearing of TXs intention to grief the base would advise Tx against it, however Tx stated that he would ignore Nigerian. As such Nigerian went and griefed the base himself on the 17th of September 2022 before Tx could. This ultimately led to TX leaving the Imperials. Along with many Midranks turning inactive over the next few days. Tx then made a reddit post showing the base.

Tyranny

Tyranny was founded by HenkieMC after a drama regarding KommunistKuba's involvement at a base by MaxRockatasky around late October 2022.

The base early on in its lifespan was largely dead. Eventually being worked on by ScuffedMC during November 2022, Scuffed would build most of the core base. Then after resolving the drama surrounding KommunistKuba, Kuba was reinvited to Imps quickly being given access to the base. Kuba would attempt to revive the base, taking over leadership from Henkie. He would build new areas of the base along with Nigerianprince and NamoVFX This was ultimately unsuccessful, as the distance of the base along with general inactivity of recruits would make it impossible to revive. The base was abandoned and eventually self griefed by Headpop around December 10th 2022.

Spawnfort

Spawnfort was a recruit base founded on the 31st of October 2022, it acted as a means of testing a system whereby all members have access to a base. Naturally this base didn't last long however it was a rather successful base considering its lifespan and next to no barriers to entry. The base was leaked on the 12th of November 2022 and was then greifed by Unblockedbot on the same day.

Ex-animo

Ex-Animo

Ex-animo was founded by Brickzebra on the 18th of December 2022 as a successive base to Bricktown, being founded a few thousand blocks away from the original location. The base was very active with a number of builds including Bricks houses, Warske's tower, Owls castle and Avoxy's church.

However the base was leaked by Slaughter Duck, a BSB insider, to BSB on the 28th of December 2022 and proceeded to be greifed on stream by Digandbuilder, Walts and DokiMin.[2][3]

Imperial Holiday Base:

Following the multiple dramas and griefs surrounding Christmas bases hosted by the Spectrum Builders, The Imperials decided to build their own Christmas base. The base was founded on December 10th 2022 and is mostly comprised of houses with candy canes around them. It was primarily built by Nigerianprince. The base was ultimately greifed on the 17th of December 2022.

The Capital

Capital Render by Nigerianprince

The Capital was originally founded as a solo spawn base by Nigerianprince in early October 2022. It then proceeded to become the main Imperial base, the reason for this is due to leadership hyping up an Imperial main base that didn't exist. As such, Nigerian decided to make his spawnbase the main base for Imps on the 9th of October 2022. The base initially comprised only Imperial high ranks, namely Brickzebra, Nigerian and Sleepyfemboy. With Nigerian doing the vast majority of building at the time, building a castle, roads and a town area. KILLAQUEEN123 was invited to the base on the 16th of October following his promotion to advisor, he built a tower at the base. Nigerian would then eventually add KommunistKuba to the base on the 20th of November 2022. Kuba would build the docks and small towers around them along with interiors for Nigerians houses. Around this time Brick would build a large stone temple in the style of the AMC Imperial main base. Foshyy a trusted member of the 0b Imperial branch, would be invited to the base the 26th of November 2022. Brick would further expand the base building a bridge and an additional temple. Throughout November-December the base was rather inactive with Nigerian building there from time to time, this is because all the other members were active at other Imp bases. In January Nigerian would add Nasder to the base, this was the first time a non high rank was added and would set a precedent of midranks being added. Nigerian would then add a number of Imperial Midranks to the base namely:Owls, Xlvz, Saturn and Avoxy. This led to a revival of the base, with other districts being added. Later on NamoVFX was added on the 5th of March, who completed an entire area right after being added. Unfortunately on that day the base was found by Pbg4444 who was base hunting around spawn, he instantly leaked the base to BGP who then would publicise the cords in 2b2t.group announcements. Avoxy would then pvp Pbg4444 whilst KommunistKuba and Nigerianprince would move the stash, download the base and self greif it.

Crusaders Crack

Crusaders Crack

Crusaders Crash was founded by Avoxy on 6th of December 2022 but was largely neglected, this was because the majority of the members had built at Bricktown and Ex-animo. Eventually after the grief of Ex-animo the active members were then invited to Crusaders, however the newly arrived members were unable to find the original location of the base. Leading them to find a new spot on the 29th of December 2022. Brickzebra would then invite KommunistKuba to the base on the 6th of January 2023, however Brick had incorrectly called the base Crusaders Crack when inviting Kuba to it, as such when Kuba set up the signboard the base was called Crusaders Crack, eventually the new name would stick and the old name was discarded. KommunistKuba would then take over as base manager from Avoxy, he began working on creating a platform on which the base would stand along with a road system up the mountain. Whilst Kuba was working on that, Owls and Xlvz would build a castle on the hill. Kuba would continue building more and more houses. Then Brick would come along and build a number of builds including a church, and some small houses, later on working on a large temple. Then Kuba had the idea of building a redesign of MaxRockatasky's cathedral at the base. However this was ultimately unsuccessful due to him being semi active on the project and Nigerian moving most of the active builders in the group to The Capital. As such the base would go inactive in late February 2023 to Late March 2023. Then on the 22nd of March 2023 the base was greifed by Amiaoghg.[4]
