Stonetown was a small town created by [[Pippenger]], [[dariepearjuicy]], [[ostrich1414]], and unclechain in early 2014.
  
Founded by Pippenger, Stonetown was created in the likeness of [[New Caladan]] and [[Ascaris]], utilizing the similar style of architecture that Pippenger himself had created.  It is built in the style of [[Imperial Architecture]], but it was never truly a part of [[The Empire]].  It was later incorporated into the [[United Alliance]] and later [[The Royal Allegiance]] in 2017, until the latter's disbanding in 2018.

Stonetown was a small town created by Pippenger, dariepearjuicy, ostrich1414, and unclechain in early 2014.

Founded by Pippenger, Stonetown was created in the likeness of New Caladan and Ascaris, utilizing the similar style of Imperial Architecture that Pippenger himself had created (while never being a part of The Empire). It was later incorporated into the United Alliance and later The Royal Allegiance in 2017, until the latter's disbanding in 2018.

Unfortunately, on June 23rd, 2020, Stonetown would be irreparably griefed by Lord1 and Wawuwiva, ending the town's six year lifespan of peace.

History

Early Foundings

Stonetown was founded in early 2014 after Pippenger's large capital city, New Caladan, had been griefed and destroyed by an unknown citizen named Horus. Still interested in using his personal style of Imperial Architecture in his builds, Pippenger decided to create a new city and recruited three members he had worked with on previous bases: dariepearjuicy, ostrich1414, and unclechain.

At first, the town flourished: buildings were being constructed at a rapid rate, and the town's central "tree dome" was simultaneously being built. Each player took on different roles within the community: Pippenger managed a majority of the larger projects, including the tree dome and miscellaneous buildings, dariepearjuicy worked on various mob farms, ostrich1414 handled the local agricultural departments, including a tree farm and various animal farms, and unclechain maintained the largest building in the town: his own personal house.

The Order of Wilbur and Stagnation

On July 29th, 2014, ostrich1414 was attempting to get the Minecraft achievement "When Pigs Fly"; in order to do this, he was to mount a saddle onto a pig and ride it off of a cliff. Ostrich1414 found a pig, whom he named "Wilbur", and rode him off of the top of the tree dome, where the two of them died. Wilbur's brutal death shocked many throughout both Stonetown and the Simplicity PvP community, and ostrich1414's barbaric actions were severely condemned. Later, a memorial was constructed in the town's center and in /world, commemorating the day of Wilbur's tragic death, and even a secret cult, known as "The Order of Wilbur", was founded in Stonetown not long after his death. This cult's headquarters can still be seen in the town, although not much is known about its activities.

Soon after the death of Wilbur, construction in Stonetown slowed down, and most of the players moved on to newer things. Unclechain vanished from the town altogether and Pippenger decided to work on a brand new base, today known as Aggersel. Dariepearjuicy later joined him and ostrich1414 went on a brief hiatus before joining back again in 2015. Although Stonetown was vacant for many months, it remained entirely intact and had not yet been discovered or griefed. Although it was largely abandoned, it was still used every so often by some of its former citizens.

The United Alliance

On May of 2017, Stonetown was annexed by the United Alliance and became one of the clan's more important bases. Because of this, Stonetown once again became an active town, and although no further construction or renovations were being made, it would still be in frequent use for other activities.

After being defeated in the War of Monarchia, the UA collapsed on October 6th, 2017, and transferred control of Stonetown to The Royal Allegiance. Although the RA currently administers the base, the team has largely been abandoned and neglected, thus technically making Stonetown an independent, fully-autonomous town that was still regularly used by those who had access to its amenities.

The Stonetown Incident

Between April 15th and 16th, 2020, tragedy would strike Stonetown for the first time in years when it was annexed by Lord1 on behalf of the Church of Francis; this was a result of Pippenger giving him the deed to a town after a disagreement with ostrich1414, who wanted to annex it for the Order of Wilbur and the City of the Divine Lord, Wilbur. Since the Church of Francis were rivals with the Order of Wilbur, ostrich1414 and his followers responded extremely negatively, traveling back to Stonetown to re-annex it for Wilbur. This resulted in the destruction of a Francillian-built building and threats towards the group, which, in turn, re-annexed the town for Francis. Several re-annexes and growing threats persisted, to the point where war appeared imminent and destruction loomed over the town.

In an effort to prevent another Holy War between the two religions, and to prevent the grief or destruction of Stonetown, Lord1 and ostrich1414 agreed to conduct a peace conference in Verillium, a neutral zone for the two. While they agreed to establish Stonetown as a neutral peaceful territory not owned by either organization, Lord1 and the Francillians still held access over the holy Wilburian town.

The End of Stonetown

On June 23rd, 2020, Stonetown would be severely griefed by Lord1 and Wawuwiva on behalf of the Church of Francis, ending the town's six year lifespan on the server. This grief was in retaliation against The Republic, which had griefed Lord1's city Two Words earlier that same day. Since the Republic was strongly anti-Lord1, and ostrich1414 was a member of the Republic (despite not taking part in the Two Words grief), Lord1 felt justified in targeting Stonetown due to the one Republic member that cherished it.

While the base lays in ruin and destruction now, its legacy still lives on as one of the most important historic bases on SimPvP. The backlash against the grief was immense, with numerous SimPvP players in despair seeing the historic, long-lasting town finally collapse. As the holiest site for the Order of Wilbur, this was also a major blow, which lost several significant locations to the destruction. Nonetheless, Stonetown's significance and legacy continues to persist in the collective minds of many.
