Argemone is a castle-town built mostly by Pippenger and SirTashingdon in January 2016. Porkington, ae0, and members of Orion's team lived there as well. Argemone was originally built as a part of The Principate. Two years after the Principate's fall, Argemone was reclaimed by The League and turned into a publicly available base, the coordinates available to all.
The base is also available for download.
Not long after its completion, Argemone was abandoned, not because it was discovered, but because The Principate collapsed and Pippenger left the server. The base has sat largely unused, but also ungriefed, ever since then.
On January 6th, 2018, Argemone was reclaimed by The League, which made the base's coordinates public and attached it to the nether railway system. The nether connection can be found at -1000 x, +12 y, +1000 z.
Argemone is a castle town, comprised of a wide, relatively low square outer wall holding farms and small houses, and within that, a taller, circular wall with round towers. In the innermost section of town is the central tower, as well as many functional buildings such as a library and a storehouse.
The city is protected by outer walls and a locked gate. In the grassy areas between the outer and inner walls, there are several buildings.
A small house to store chicken products.
A small back gate and dock. Absolutely scandalous.
Argemone gets 90% of its energy from renewable resources such as wind power (it actually doesn't).
Most of the villagers are not allowed into the town and are instead kept in a box out behind the outer walls.
A house that Katrina and Orion formerly lived in.
A church mainly meant for decoration, but also for housing a few religious villagers.
The round inner walls contain the most important buildings of Argemone.
The city library contains a level 30 enchanting table, as well as a few villager librarians.
The furnace house was used to produce stone brick for the large walls.
Space for extra resources.
A house lived in by Pippenger and other residents of the city.
Where the city's potions were prepared.
The mob grinder is disguised by a domed tower facade.
The tallest building in town is its central tower, intended to be the seat of Principate power in the spawn region.
However, it was later repurposed as a nether subway station by The League.
