Civcraft 2.0 - The Age of Legend

"We should not be forced to choose between Mt. Augusta's industrial economy, and New Danzilona's tradition of slavery. We deserve, demand, and shall have both!"

- Queen Screenname (disputed)

Gensokyo's beginnings can be traced to the foundation of the state of New Detroit. On June 1st, 2014, it all began with a girl and a dream. Screenname von Gensokyo, former umbrella of unknown origins, settled in an abandoned crack house along the banks of the Sanzu River, just east of the city state of Mt. Augusta. To her west, Mt. Augusta was seen as respectable for its booming economic power, but Screenname saw Augusta lacked the manpower necessary to run the agrarian marijuana plantation she wanted. The simple solution was slavery, but slavery was explicitly outlawed by the Augustan constitution. To the east, New Danzilona was a total shithole, but it was able to stay afloat on the broken backs of an enslaved populace. Screenname believed these two tenets of ideology combined could create a regional powerhouse, and so she founded New Detroit, an independent free state where she could work without the confines of big government pushing her around. Mt. Augusta, failing to grasp the gravity of the situation and the unyielding ambition of Screenname, did nothing to stop the foundation of this state, and allowed it to exist. This would be the source of numerous contentions in the future.

The United Earth Directorate

"The desert is a beautiful, barren ocean. Forgotten, ignored, abused and exploited by most. Not us." — DJDAV1D

United in their great respect for the mighty deserts of the region, and need for common recognition, New Detroit and the city of Goodsprings joined together in the voluntary organization the United Earth Directorate. While the organization never achieved anything of significant importance, it laid the foundation of friendship that motivated Goodsprings to allow its incorporation into the Kingdom of Gensokyo.

Grundeswald's Proposal

In early August, Grundeswegian viceroy Kovio invited Screenname to come visit the city of New Salisbury. It was soon discovered the peoples of New Detroit and New Salisbury shared common culture and beliefs. Almost immediately that day, papers were signed to incorporate the state of New Detroit into the Kingdom of Grundeswald. New Detroit was given the cities of Griffin and Istanbul, which were Grundeswegian cities in the New Detroit area in dire need of local administration. New Detroit was also given the land of Yakumo, to cement New Detroit's place in the greater Grundeswegian area.

The Founding of Gensokyo

On September 1st, it was decided the New Detroit area was too geographically seperated and culturally different to be a direct part of Grundeswald. To remedy this, all of the cities in New Detroit were given statuses as autonomous states, and the Kingdom of Gensokyo was established, joining the Kingdom of Grundeswald in the United Kingdoms of Grundeswald and Gensokyo. At her personal request, Goodsprings immediately joined the Kingdom of Gensokyo and signed papers solidifying the agreement.

Istanbul Rebellion

On August 17th, 2014, Istanbul, which had previously been inactive since 2013, received a citizen by the name of GTAIVisbest who had lived in Istanbul in the summer of 2013, boosting its population to 1. With foreign support, notably from the nations of Mt. Augusta and New Danzilona, GTAIVisbest started the independence war, claiming the mountaintop city and rising in open rebellion against Gensokyojin forces. An evening-long standoff occurred, pushing rebel forces back. However, foreign troops from Mt. Augusta and New Danzilona arrived to reinforce the rebels, and the Gensokyojin militia eventually retreated back to territories south-west of Istanbul. The political and military situation between the two entities was never resolved by the end of 2.0.

The Yurtstead War

Grammatically challenged buffoon, chump, IQ-63, barely a primate and second class yeoman Seargent_Pepper, Aka: Gant, Aka: Founder of New Danzilona, Aka: Man with Head Thicker than a McDonald's Milkshake, Aka: Power hungry madman with an ego bigger than Screenname's, decided making the people of New Danzilona miserable was simply not enough, and he had to take his sadistic entertainment of pain and suffering to the foreign masses. He went down south of Holy Tree where he stormed the small town of Vind, murdered their leader, slaughtered the townsfolk, razed the city, and was lauded as a hero for it. He then stole the land, settled a single house around which he then proceeded to claim all the land in a 1000 - 1500 block radius of. Not content with his personal holocaust, he felt the need to cause more pain in the region. He forcibly evicted the populace of Syngrad from their homes, then evicted the residents of New Syngrad 1500 blocks away. He then tried to strongarm Screenname into giving up almost all of her expansion room and condemning her nation to death by asphyxiation. Screenname would not stand for this and boldly defied Gant's bullying. Her defiance took the form of telling Gensokyojins to settle on "Gant's land" regardless of what he said, founding the settlement of Yurtstead. Seeing as how Gant had never touched nor probably ever saw the land he was claiming, she figured it would open the door to renegotiation. Instead it opened the floodgates of war, as Gant gave Screenname an ultimatum to tear down all Gensokyojin buildings in Yurtstead or he would do it. Screenname sent a demolition team to comply, however instead of being thanked for her cooperation, a standoff ensued at the Yurtstead area. Figuring enough was enough, Screenname wasn't going to be pushed around by Danzilonan goons any longer. Her defiance lead to the bloody battle at Yurtstead, after which a peace treaty was signed and Gensokyo was given the land that was rightfully hers.

HKE Drama

I've made a lot of hard choices since I took this job, but none as hard as this." — Screenname von Gensokyo

In late September Gensokyo joined the Holy Krautchan Empire with Grundeswald. Gensokyo's influence was completely diluted to the point of almost nonexistence. Gensokyo was given no official elector or recognition in the HKE. Despite Gensokyo's noticeable growth and geographic importance compared to other elector nations, some of which literally had a populace of only two citizens, Gensokyo never received official representation in the empire. As months passed, the populace of Gensokyo would stand for it no longer, and called upon their Queen to take action. With no other recourse, on November 10th Screenname issued an ultimatum to the HKE, demanding elector status and threatening secession if that demand was not met. The HKE complied and granted Gensokyo elector status and officially elevated it to the sixth ==== Consolidation ====

Over the course of the next few months Gensokyo went on to create the states of Arreat, Cape Kogasa, and Kokoro. On February 12th, 2015, Xia joined the Gensokyojin Confederacy due to a lack of activity, similarity in culture, and close proximity.

The Mock Battle of Istanbul

"All of us have volunteered to fight for Gensokyo. Some came mainly because we were bored at home, thought this looked like it might be fun. Some came because we were ashamed not to. Many of us came because it was the right thing to do. This is a different kind of army. If you look back through history you will see men fighting for pay, for women, for some other kind of loot. They fight for land, power, because a king leads them, or just because they like killing. But we are here for something new, this has not happened much, in the history of the world. We are an army out to set other men free from their mudslime oppressors. No man has to bow. No man born to royalty. Here we judge you by what you do, not by who your father was. But it's not the land, there's always more land. It's the idea that we all have value - you and me. What we are fighting for, in the end, we're fighting for each other." — Screenname's speech before the battle.

On March 29th, 2015, Gensokyo participated in a mock battle with Istanbul, in a scenario where Gensokyo attempted to retake the territory through military force. The New Detroit Niggers, a large battalion of federal troops commanded by Empress Screenname, stormed the rear of Istanbul in an attempt to flank the enemy. The high ground of the terrain proved unforgiving, and while Gensokyojin soldiers fought bravely and were more than a match for their Islamic enemies, they could not hold the area and were forced to make a tactical retreat.

The Hakurei-Trenzalore Incident

On September 1st, 2014, Trenzalore was incorporated into the Gensokyojin Confederation and in honor of the incorporation was given a new name; "Hakurei" and under the newly formed district of "Cape Kogasa". At this time Hakurei, as it was then known, was definitively uninhabited and had been griefed by suspected /pol/ nazis. The city was eerie and quiet with its imposing walls and broken ruins. Different conversations were had about restoration and habitation but nothing much ever came to be. On April 4th, 2015, The honorable St_Leibowitz published a "Poland-ball" style comic to r/civcraft and to r/gensoukyou that was styled as a tour of the territories belonging to Gensokyo. This included the empty city of Hakurei(Trenzalore). It also alluded to the name and ownership changes. Unbeknownst to him, Ardent Trenzalorian supporter, Perdikkas13, happened to be scrolling through r/civcraft as slow as humanly possible when he happened to see the Comic. Infuriated by the lack of respect given to his and the other former citizens of Hakurei(Trenzalore) over the obviously artful destruction of the city and the former citizens' wish to preserve the haunted shithole they knew as Trenzalore, he went on a patriotism-fueled rage through the gensokyojin subreddit swearing at every mention of the city. Some of their more educated statements include "Who the fuck gave you the rights to Trenzalore?" and "First, learn the fucking history of the town before you fucking claim it". He also insinuated to The Empress Herself that the city's current state of ruins was indeed the best way to preserve it. Screenname, ever being the benevolent leader, engaged in diplomatic negotiations with the distressed individual and helped to peacefully resolve the situation. After a discussion about the city's best interests, an agreement was reached. The city was to be called Trenzalore again and was then registered as a historic monument. Perdikkas13 was granted full control of the city's direction, free from both domestic and international influence as per the language of the treaty. Tenzalore remains Gensokyojin territory. St_Leibowitz also edited his comic to reflect the changes.

Holy Tree Drama

On June 14th, 2015, a conflict erupted over border territories between Holy Tree and Gensokyo. Gensokyojin citizens had an immediate Déjà vu as they had posttraumatic stress attacks remembering Yurtstead. Nearby Mount Augusta and New Danzilonia were affected with the border conflict as well but to a lesser extent. Enraged after seeing nearby territories as an encroachment near their city, despite being a year since they were active, recently revived Holy Tree citizens demanded three nations to give up parts of their land to restore ownership. Land settlements reclamation from New Danzilonia and Mount Augusta were easy enough as changes for them were negligible for them to care. When Holy Tree demanded that Gensokyo bend backwards to their wants too, a firm "no" was returned. This angered Holy Tree's "de facto" mayor, Callid13 so much, he blamed the negative response on Gensokyo's bellicose policies. An immediate "cold war-like" state started between the two nations, if one wishes to call Holy Tree one. With one or two randoms pearled near the border of Holy Tree, the city closed it's borders on June 14th. An immediate negotiation thread was started to alleviate the crisis. This was eventually settled with the treaty of New Phoenix.

The Goten War- The Breaking Point

On August 3rd, 2015 an event that shook Gensokyo to its very core occured. Selenanight, the leader of New Detroit's Goten district, along with her lieutenant Hatsumei, declared unilateral secession from Gensokyo without warning. This came as a shock to many members of the nation, which was seeing a comeback in playercounts. Selena declared that the reason for her dastardly uprising was because of poor treatment by Gensokyojin officials. It has also been proposed that they did not approve of non-Goten citizens using Goten infrastructure but this is highly unlikely given that the rebels had no problem using non-Goten infrastructure and resources, and only a true hypocrite would apply such a double standard. In a display of possibly even greater stupidity, newly elected mayor and bike seat sniffer, Prof_TANSTAAFL, in defiance of standing international treaties with Gensokyo and against all ethical decency, unconditionally supported the rebel revolt. Unconditionally. Although this broke the MTA-Gensokyo friendship treaty, Prof declared that even if Goten had demanded real money, they would still support them with military force. The rest of MTA's war-hungry populace was eager to fall in line behind him, and sharpened their swords for a hostile takeover. Within 48 hours, Augusta had aggressively annexed the rebel territory without making a single effort to negotiate with the Gensokoyjin government, telling them to negotiate with the rebels themselves. The rebels, with the unconditional backing of Imperial Augusta saw absolutely no need to negotiate with the under-strength Gensokyojins and refused to even speak. Facing overwhelming odds, the brave Gensokyojins immediately shifted into defense of their homeland. The Army of the Sanzu immediately mobilized by destroying most bridges between Goten and New Detroit city, as well as setting up military blockades on all remaining roads. Gensokyo knew full well they were under-strength, and called upon their many allies who were actually capable of honoring a treaty. Many Chanadians and members of the HKE arrived at New Detroit to prepare for the next move, and to meet the challenge that MTA had presented. In an unexpected turn of events, Hjaltland and allied Tigercrew mercenaries also arrived to aid the fledgling coalition. This was a show of good faith that Gensokyo was not soon to forget. Once the massive army was assembled, Gensokyojin high command had urged the coalition to attack Goten as soon as possible, and force a confrontation with Augustan forces. Indeed, they were confident their now superior numbers would be able to win the day in a pitched battle. This was a blunder that would cost Gensokyo and the entire coalition dearly, as the Tigercrew forces hadn't even arrived by the time the attack was ordered. Forces that may have tipped the balance. The invasion began in the wee hours of the morning. The small force defending Goten retreated in the face of the advancing coalition forces, and Goten was secured without a fight. However, the battle was far from over. In an amazing display of diplomatic bullshitting, Augusta somehow managed to leverage their Defensive Pact with Nox into an Offensive Pact, and bolster their meat shield into a capable invasion force. News that Nox had betrayed the HKE began to trickle in, and hope among the occupying forces in Goten began to wane. An order to fall back behind the walls of New Detroit came. The Augustan-Nox invasion force was assembled quickly. It now outnumbered the forces in New Detroit, and they wasted no time crossing the Sanzu River to attack New Detroit. The entire Coalition army was routed without a fight, as the sight of the Nox warriors caused them to break ranks and flee for their lives. A long and arduous retreat to the eastern territories of the ++ began, and New Detroit was sacked and occupied. A vote was started by the bloodthirsty Augustan soldiers to annex New Detroit and all of Gensokyo's western territories into MTA, but it failed by a slim margin. The villains in Goten smugly relished in their victory, even though they got someone bigger to fight their battles for them. Due to interference from Bryn, Gensokyo was persuaded to let Goten go independent,

The End of New Detroit

{{Quote frame"It was a painful decision made of prudence. There was no sense living in that festering toxic hell hole. Still, all these years, all these memories... how do you say goodbye?" - Screenname von Gensokyo

Screenname knew that this was merely the first phase of Imperial Augusta's scheme to aggressively assimilate nearby territory, and it would not end here. Augusta would likely pay off more people to revolt in Gensokyo's fringe holdings or just openly annex the territory unconditionally as they attempted to with New Detroit City shortly after their invasion, citing democracy as a magically infallible benevolent system, and that any action taken by popular vote was immediately justified. They knew they could do this as they had already broken the friendship treaty and gotten away with it, and no longer had to honor any agreements they made, again citing democracy. Months of territorial conflicts, loss of land, and being bordered by an incredibly powerful, imperialistic state that requires all nearby nations to march in lockstep with their foreign policy and function as little more than a vassal had made Screenname extremely weary. Knowing that the wars and the fighting would just go on and on and on, she knew it was time for it to end and refocus Gensokyojin priorities. It was once again the ones who had settled the Goten conflict who came to the oppressed Gensokyojin's aid. Bryn agreed to purchase the entirety of Western Gensokyo for over 10000 diamonds, and ensure it would not fall to Augusta's greed. Believing that their beloved homes were in competent hands, the people of Gensokyo, giving the Western territories one last nod and a wink, set off to the sealed Eastern paradise of the Touhou region to begin again.

The End of 2.0

Now free from the bonds of aggressive foreigners, and purged of dissidents and inferiors, Gensokyo continued its inward perfection by focusing on cultivating a nation as beautiful as its neighboring Prussia. A call was sent out to recruit builders from all around. Some were a wasted effort, and caused exstensive damage, and some proved to be a true asset to Gensokyo. One in particular, Topaz4293, would rise to become one of Gensokyo's preeminent builders. This would cause a shift towards a focus on building to promote Gensokyojn culture rather than aggressive foreign policies. More cities were built in the east, such as Mayohiga and Higan. Many more players were recruited that would stick with Gensokyo to this very day. Gensokyo began to recover from the disasters of August, and it seemed that the future was bright. This was not to last, as it had been announced that Civcraft 3.0 was coming, and the world plunged into the darkness of apocalypse. 3.0 was coming, and it would not be pretty.

CivTemp - The Calm Before

"That's what's wrong with this city. Liberals just want to open the floodgates, let anyone in, and make hard-working men and women pay for it. Well, you have my permission to beat them with sticks. We won't prosecute. You'd be doing us all a favor.” — Screenname von Gensokyo on the economy. Probably.

Gensokyo initially re-established itself as the bustling port city of Galveston in the state of Texas on the island of Soleado. It focused mainly on tourism and naval supremacy. The tropical climate allowed for large bushels of marijuana to be grown which allowed weed to become the primary Texan export. Unbeknownst to the people of Texas, danger was brewing on the island of Soleado. The vengeful spirit of King Tuckyashirtin, the long dead last ruling monarch of the Asstech Empire, was growing restless. Excavations into the ruins of his temple and subsequent burial site had been going on for weeks, excavating building supplies, artifacts, and anything that looked like it could be sold at a pawn shop. The turning point came with the extraction of the Royal Slab of Tuckyashirtin, a slab chiseled with a list of people that owed the former king money. Fearful he would not be able to extort them later, Tuckyashirtin was determined to get the slab back at all costs. Breaking the bonds of death and returning to the mortal plane, he spent several days trying to break out of his triple sealed coffin. After finding that he was facing the wrong way, having been buried upside down as a joke, he righted himself and escaped.

Meanwhile in Fort Tuckyashirtin, the now ironically named capital building of Galveston, Texas, Screenname was hanging up numerous artifacts recovered from the temple, including the infamous slab. King Tuckyashirtin approached the Fort and demanded the return of his slab, threatening unholy disaster should it not be. In true Gensokyojin fashion, a stand-off occurred. Screenname refused to return the slab, feeling that if somebody wanted it that bad, it must be worth something. She refused to return the slab to him unless he paid a million diamonds for it. Tuckyashirtin would not even entertain the subject. Screenname did not consider some ugly emaciated corpse standing around making terrible sound effects to be a genuine threat but Tuckyashirtin wasn't fucking around. The first "plague" was to bombard the city with an ungodly amount of newfags, hopefully to overload the city's capacity and destroy its infrastructure by sheer force. In less than a day though these new people were assimilated into Gensokyojin culture and only benefited the city. The second "plague" was to play terrible terrible touhou remixes over a loudspeaker truck in the city square. This was unsuccessful due to the population's terrible taste in music, and his speaker system was eventually short circuited by the island's ungodly humidity.

The third "plague" was something but nobody was really paying attention, having completely forgotten about the king by this point, the novelty of his appearance having worn off. The new fad at the time was growing oversized fruit. The Galveston Watermelon festival was very successful that year. Screenname mocked the king, noting he was out of ammo at this point, having only promised three plagues. However, Tuckyashirtin was far from finished. Slowly the sea level began to rise drastically. The rate of the rising ocean would engulf the city within hours. What Tuckyashirtin had failed to account for was the large number of seaworthy vessels docked around the city. Knowing that the jig was finally up but determined to hold onto the slab out of pure spite, Screenname mobilized the population to evacuate on the ships. King Tuckyashirtin attempted to give chase aboard the unoccupied ship, the SS Catpeter, but due to the ship's construction being made almost exclusively out of rocks, he would drown in the attempt.

CivCraft 3.0 Blues

"I can't really say it's been fun, because 3.0 was literally the worst game I've ever played." — MuffinPimp

Civtemp was gone, and the opening of 3.0 was marked with confusion and disarray. Members of Gensokyo were spread out across the entire map, and wandered for many a day searching for a place to call home. In the land of Eilon, home to massive trees with that blocked out the very sunlight, Screenname had rallied the Gensokyojin people once again. With the aid of Gensokyo's elite corps of builders, a new city rose beneath the canopy in under a week. This new city was christened as Morieji, and became the nerve center for the nation even as more ambitious plans for a capital began to emerge. It wasn't long before Gensokyo came to have neighbors. Alpoko and Volterra both settled their nations next to Gensokyo, as Eilon was a small and crowded land. Talks to confirm the claims of Gensokyo began internally, with one faction vying for an aggressive land claim that spanned an entire quadrant, and another wanting a more modest claim. In the end, the former faction won Screenname's support. This showed a trend in growing factionalism within Gensokyo. All attempts to reform Gensokyo's government into something more robust fell through, with both factions never willing to compromise on anything, and getting more hostile with eachother by the week.

Things were about to go from bad to worse, as 3.0's mechanics proved themselves once and for all to be completely bone-headed. Volterra, the most powerful of Gensokyo's neighbors, quickly made a move to claim as many of the pylons in Eilon as they could, e-lawyers be damned. Gensokyo, wanting a pylon of their own, attempted to strike a compromise with Volterra. Although talks were making good progress, a new challenger entered the arena. A mysterious nation on Gensokyo and Volterra's border, Province, claimed the last two pylons available on Eilon before Gensokyo could create one. This threw a wrench into the gears, as Volterra was unwilling to crack down on Province and led Gensokyo into a dangerous situation. Talks of war began to seep in amongst Gensokyo and its allies, and internal factions within Gensokyo grew discontent with these rumors. Some called for war, and some called for a peaceful solution. As if things couldn't get any worse, waves of raiders began to descend upon Eilon. Volterra was hit the hardest, and even lost one of their pylons in the attacks. Gensokyo was not spared either, and one of their highest-ranking members was slain while attempting to flee the city of Morieji with a large sum of diamonds in tow. In the midst of the chaos however, Gensokyo was able to claim two pylons, at the cost of potentially provoking Volterra. This was a risk that Screenname was willing to take.

I tell you what bro, these guys like anime and shit.
