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.


History

Argemone was founded early in 2016, during the Great War between The Principate and the Blue Orchid Cult.

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.

Layout

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.
