Azdin spends most of his time griefing abandoned bases near spawn by reverting the area to its natural terrain. This has earned him much notoriety on the server.
He made his initial home relatively close to spawn and as he was exploring the surrounding area he came across a desert with 57 small pyramids in it. It turns out Pippenger had made them years earlier. Azdin started expanding it and soon it covered the whole desert. Pippenger pushed for a name so they decided on Azpipia. To the east, Azdin also found Pippenger's Pink Castle ruins and since the world is so old that no granite can be found near spawn, he demolished it and used the granite to start building a wall around his base.

A house built at the same location.
Soon after, a cheater found Azdin's stash deep underground near the base and Azdin decided to relocate. He started expanding Tamarisk on its east side, creating two new wards and doubling the size of the city. He then ventured far afield and found a large mushroom atoll. He filled in the center, converted the whole island to grass, and planted flowers. He built a single iron farm/villager breeder, a small house, and a sugarcane farm and was content so he went back to spawn. He returned to Tamarisk, restored the central tower, and built a new tower. He also extended the underground boat highway to Azpipia so he could more easily complete that project.

On the 1 year anniversary of joining the server, Azdin happened to find a not well hidden portal to JezdziecBezNicka's Base. The next day, as Azdin was asking about villager spawn eggs he found, clipchip tried to buy them but Azdin wouldn't budge so clipchip tracked him down at Jez's base and killed him, revealing that he had previously found the base two years prior.

On January 14th 2020, Azdin found a portal to Atherius and came across NeutralistNoodle and JohnzyFetusboy afk. Azdin attacked NeutralistNoodle but he ran away. JohnzyFetusboy however was really afk and died. Lord1 turned up and pursued Azdin in the sky for a bit but was unable to get away. He attempted to close the portal before Lord1 could make it through but was too slow and accidentally shut off his access to the city.

The YMP raid on the server when they lavacast a lot of spawn bases actually saved Tamarisk from the destruction of nearly all major spawn bases by Phrasings. Azdin and some others removed all the lavacasts which was a major undertaking. On March 29, 2020 Azdin discovered that Tamarisk had been TNT griefed and lavacast by willowienal who filmed the incident. When confronted about it, willowienal expressed regret, said he got the TNT at a discount from SFR clan and it was all Wawuwiva's idea. Wawuwiva said he did it all for the reputation.

Azdin's Azpipia project near spawn was griefed with TNT and lavacasts in retaliation for his removal of spawn bases. Yukarion expressed disapproval and gave props to Azdin's 2 year effort of removing bases and restoring the landscape around spawn out to 8k or so. Ostrich1414 made a video of the griefing.
