Atlantea originated on a small island back on NBZ. That island was about as small as a ship4, and the only thing on it originally was a single tree. I discovered the island, covered it in buildings, and created a faction with 10+ players. PenguinH2O joined and set up a railway network on the island, and we built a few small ships. Then, someone (I don't remember the name) stole a ship from the Atlantean docks, and attacked the island, eventually destroying almost everything, the island was turned to nothing other than crushed dreams and a few blocks of dirt thanks to Atlantea's own advanced weaponry. Then came the 2nd incarnation of Atlantea, it was created last year, and had 3 bases over it's short history. The faction name was the Democratic Republic of Atlantea (DROA), and it originated after a test run of a new ship rediscovered Israel's old base, it was also built on a small island, and the massive underground bunker built underground was still completely intact. The base was used for almost a week, before someone (I don't remember the name), also stole a ship from the Atlantean docks, and again, turned the island into nothing but crushed dreams and a few blocks of dirt. DROA eventually came up with a solution to the issue, take a bunch of ships, and link them together with wood bridges. Several ships were raised, and, before they could be linked together, Kilowner (I think it was Kilowner, I don't remember) found another old Israeli base, completely intact, and it even had ships in it's harbor. We turned that into our new base, DROA had great diplomatic relations, and even managed to get gigantic ship5 supercarriers for almost nothing. This was during the height of Slimefun use, and the massive mountain behind the base was completely leveled, while we desperately mined for XP in order to rush for nuclear weapons. Then, we voluntarily became a subject of the Prussian Empire, and eventually got integrated after Velocity threatened to nuke Prussian Islands (The new name of DROA) Then, Velocity failed to deliver on his/her promise of nuking the base, and it was abandoned. Later on, the Prussian Empire became a superpower after I built the most cutting-edge bioweapons lab on the server, we had chests upon chests filled with gigantic supplies of Rabies, Smallpox, and the Plague. In addition, we also had a secret ICBM project going on, which would have succeeded in producing ICBMs had Speedi not nuked Prussia's base for no damn reason. Finally, the 3rd incarnation. It existed for 3 days, and had almost no players, we had a nice, small, basic bunker, and was abandoned after we were repeatedly attacked by players who claimed that planes didn't have to be AA-able. And that is the story of the Atlantean Empire's rise and fall, and rise and fall again. DROA's 3rd base, during what I would call the "Nuke Crisis" The Bismarck, resurrected after sitting in an old harbor for months.. Glory to the Atlantean Empire, it will come back after reset.
