Dyrrhachium was founded on November 6th 2019 by Pres. It was the first thing he did after coming back from inactivity from March-October 2019.
'Founding' of Overlook
The first task for foundation of the city was to get a solid base. With his sister njsolomon, Pres claimed all of the former fort town of Forte_Carlos and started to revamp the old fort. It was renamed to the Castle of Overlook (a reference to the Black Company book series). Most of the cobblestone was replaced with stone brick, and a new flag was planted on top of the main tower. The cursed anime pixel art hanging above the area was also removed at this time.
The Destruction of Everything Albanian.
After securing and revamping overlook, Pres considered keeping the buildings of the former Albanian town Tirana in the town designs. However, after pressing F3 + G what he saw was a unmistakable tragedy. Every single Albanian house that could of taken up one chunk was actually in 3 or 4 separate ones. This lead him to one conclusion: The former Albanians were true barbarians and every build related to them needed to be destroyed. Pres then destroyed everything Albanian down to a certain y level, and covered the rest up with grass blocks. Today you can still find Albanian ruins, if you look underneath the city.
Construction of the Walls
Pres, with his friend jasmls started laying out plans for the fledgling town. They decided to tear down most of the mountain north and west of Overlook. However, this task would take to long to be done by themselves. Pres brought in longtime friends Carlos, Giphillips, and Hicks to help. With his newfound aid, jasmls, and njsolomon, most of the mountain was cleared pretty quickly and most of the walls were finished in a month. Also with Ad31's help, a road system was constructed.
A Period of Inactivity
Starting in early march Pres and his friends went completely inactive, starting in February. The town however endured until his return in Mid May 2020.
The Return of the Dux
Pres upon his return, started to revamp the old road system, make new houses, and actively recruit, hoping to make Dyrrhachium one of the best towns in Hellas.
