History

Founding -

Their first fortification, Fort Independence, is based in the South West Ocean of PirateCraft, on the Southern Continent.

In the beginning of 2014, NickyB_123 and Fireglazer founded the "Thirteen Colonies" and built a small fort later to be named "Ft. Independence" For years to follow, the small crew with big aspirations began to work in peace. That would all change.


Internal Conflict -

This began when two deckhands, JoeBlub and ProtoNox, were let into the crew, these two players were exceptionally good at PVP, but at the same time stubborn and uncooperative. Under the consecutive decision of Wykkyd_14, build1115, and NickyB_123, it was decided that JoeBlub would be removed from the crew. The plan was carried out by build1115, who was told not to mention it, but tell JoeBlub to ask Nicky for permission back in. Outraged, JoeBlub came to build1115's base, sieged, and killed him (Taking off with only inventory loot). Turmoil sprang up as Proto, Joe, and RoseEditz banned together to defy the leaders of the crew (SilverStone47, Wykkyd_14, build1115, and NickyB_123) Shortly after, SilverStone47 left 13C, and ran off to a new port he was working on. He lived in isolation, as he still does. Not to be disturbed by any war of any kind. This marked the end of a prosperous time for the 13C. Later that day, build1115 left, leaving inactive Nicky (who was on vacation for a week) and Wykkyd_14 to handle the rogues (Later, it merged with the British Empire)

Merging with the British Empire -

Now the only active members were Nicky and about two others. Isolated from allies, it was. Decided that the 13co could unite with the BE and still rule under its own name. (Whole merging process was so that everyone was in the same /crew chat) After the crew update in June of 2016, they rejoined their crew, now with the tag of "13C" Entering the summer of 2016 with big plans and a bright future, the Thirteen Colonies are again on their path to expansion and prosperity.

Fall of Dalkon State-

In one of the most tragic parts of the 13C's history, Port Dalkon fell to the control of "The Asylum" crew leader Cysteen. SilverStone47, who had owned the port of Dalkon and held possession of it till current owner, "build1115" had enough claim blocks. Tired of waiting and not caring about friendship and relations, Silver gave the whole entire claim to Cysteen. build1115's vault was located on Silver's (now Cysteen's side), so Cysteen took advantage of this, tped in players. And looted the entirety of build's base. With nothing left but crap, build gave over his port (connected to Dalkon) to Cysteen. And thus, begins a new era in 13C history.

Reform and Relocation-

With the 1.10 world expansion, it was decided that the entirety of 13C should be moved, turning original states and their borders only into outposts and defenses. The future location of the 13C has yet to be decided, but it is planned to be located in builds new port city of Vernondale.

Independence

On September, Nicky was able to re-gain independence from the British Empire. Under the Declaration of Independence, The 13C shall no longer be merged with the British Empire, nor is it responsible for 13C's actions. With this, the 13C can make its own decisions and laws, without any interference of the democratic-elected Government of the British Empire .

Leaving the League of Nations

Shortly after 13C's independence from the British Empire, 13C left the League of Nations on October 2nd, 2016. With nothing left to offer, and pointless for what is was created for, [[NickyB_123, build1115, and dorkito101 voted to leave, to establish alliance connections elsewhere. Shortly after, the BE left, leaving only a few crews left in the once mighty LoN. UPDATE: The rest of the LoN crews are gone, as IE, XE, VE, left. The EE Revolution left the crew split, so it was disbanded.

Thirteen Colony States

13C is split into different sectors, or States, in which there is a Governor/Representative, Fort Commander/Military Commander, a capital, and 2+ citizens. Only when these circumstances are meet, is the State allowed into the Union. Until those circumstances are met, the land is known as a 'Province' of The Thirteen Colonies.

  • Expanding the Navy and Army is in action
  • Negotiations for territory boundaries, as well as mapping them, are underway. MANIFEST DESTINY

Relationships

The Thirteen Colonies are apart of 'The Allied' & are a trusted, valued member of it.


A special relationship between the Iborian Empire & the Thirteen Colonies exists after a rough first encounter. Tensions originally occurred between the two crews, specifically the neighboring founders (NickyB_123 and fireglazer) and Palmerageddon. After a few early hostile encounters between the two nations, a lasting alliance was eventually formed.
