Shitstania is a spawn base founded by IAmTheSheriff in Summer 2019. It is unique from other bases by directly clinging to the wall of spawn, with a small hole used to access an indestructible bed, ender chest, and many more useful things. It has been a target of many griefs, but that is seen as part of the fun. As of Spring 2020, the area where it once was has been completely cleared from existence.
In the summer of 2019, IAmTheSheriff was moving his home at the McCapital. He had finished his new home, and was eager to move in. Upon his next death, however, he was shocked to find that his bed has been broken and not reset in the moving. His spirit broken, Sheriff refused to leave spawn. He toiled aimlessly at the spawn parkour, while thinking about what he wanted to do next. As if it were a sign, Sheriff knew his calling as soon as he finished the course. At the end was a small house on a floating island, with some appliances and a bed. What interested him most, however, was a 2x1 hole in this specific area of the glass case surrounding spawn. This would allow him to move between this indestructible 'starter base", and his new city. However, he knew that a base directly next to spawn would never last long. He considered it akin to shitposting, making a joke so stupid one couldn't help but laugh. By Ostrich1414's suggestion, this idea was integrated into the new name "Shitstania".
The base began small, with Sheriff first venturing into spawn to find saplings. Once he found enough, he returned to his plot with enough stone pickaxes to dig a sizeable hole into the lavacast surrounding the hole. While he began excavation to expose the entire area to sunlight, he eventually started a tunnel which headed deeper, as well. In this time, Sheriff equated building at Shitstania to building at a skyblock world, focusing on renewable blocks like cobblestone and wood. However, soon after the plans began coming together, disaster struck.
Many griefers would come to Shitstania to destroy its farms and other structures. Sheriff never kept track of who griefed what, however, so only guesses can be made by various calling cards. IPyxis, Antzakes1, and The Fellowship all left a sign or other calling card at Shitstania, although not all of them may have griefed it.
Return and Reconstruction
After quitting for several months, Sheriff returned to SimPVP in mid-December. He found Shitstania in ruin again, but he had his inventory and e-chest items to work off of. This rejuvenation era was very successful, despite many attempts for it to be griefed. It has various farms, a church of melon (formerly the church of Francis, a build by Lord1. Sheriff changed it in order to align with his Wilburian faith), a cobble generator, and a large glass-floored room overlooking a deep tunnel left by a previous TNT-duped grief.
The Sigil Conflict
After the destruction of Sigil, many members fled to Shitstania for temporary refuge. On January 17, 2020, Lord1 griefed Shitstania following his trial that left him the butt of many jokes. Perhaps as a sign of God (or a testament to Lord's sub-par griefing skills), Greg, Shitstania's mascot Iron Golem, survived. Repairs were made, but were later proven worthless by an effort to "improve" spawn.
Complete Destruction and Potential Revivals
Following AntHand and Lord1's waterlogging of spawn (Operation Moist Boiz II), it was effectively impossible to continue the Shitstania project. Thus, the idea fell into dormancy while Sheriff worked at Takyon. In the first Simpvp Summit, it was suggested that a rapture-like underwater city (dubbed Shitlantis) be constructed. Additionally, Sheriff represented the event as Shitstania's sole representative and built a booth regarding the base's history. Despite positive reception at the time, the Shitlantis idea fell through. It was only in the second summit that Sheriff proposed a serious revival. Thanks to The Dominion and their lava casting of spawn (Operation Dry Boiz), Shitstania could be constructed once again. Since Sheriff is unable to put his full time into the project (given his position at Exultia, "Shitstania 2" is considered a group project. As of now, no progress is yet underway.
Shitstania, being a public base, has seen various visitors over its lifespan. These include:
