Gqldn is a player who joined in mid-September of 2019. He is an active player on the server and currently Firstmate rank. Golden was a member and leader of ROME, and had been in the crew for over a year. In Rome, he served as the High Capal of Development, overseeing all the construction and development throughout the empire. Now in the Valyrian Freehold, Golden serves as the founder and Sealord of Braavos. He also likes to dabble in pvp, sailing ships, and owning a store at the /warp shop.
GoldenMoneyz joined PirateCraft on September 17, 2019. On his first day on the server, he was invited to VISN, where he stayed for the next few days. Golden ended up making a base near the /warp east, and was attacked several times on his first week. During Golden's second week of the server, he was invited to ROME by CosmicKingSp00k. Golden was given a home in Pathere.
At this time, ROME was in the "Kaiser Era". ROME had just won the wars against SPQR and ESE, and most of the infamous "KingKaisers" were still active on the server. Kosmic (Cosmic), Karen (Awsed_Miner), Klaus (MileHighGaming), Khaos (The_PenguinGamer), Kactus (JoKing311), and Kiwi (BuffNut) were prominent members and leaders in ROME during this time. This would be the most prosperous time seen in ROME until several months later.
After only a few days being in ROME, Golden was attacked and sieged in Pathere by sj_brotherhood. Many more attacks from DD members would continue for the next few months. Meanwhile, ROME's Imperator Cosmic had just begun construction on a new city that he hoped would attract deckhands to the crew. This city was to be called Vastere and would be the largest Roman build project to date. As construction on the city began, Golden became interested in helping build this city for the empire. Cosmic and Golden spent a few weeks working on the central area of Vastere. Due to these contributions to the empire, Golden quickly began rising through the builder ranks and became one of ROME's main architects. Over time, the city started filling up with many buildings and new recruits. (Vastere would eventually become the most populated settlement in ROME and also on the server for the next year.)
During the end of 2019, Golden had the chance to take part in the Halloween and Christmas events. Although he didn't know why at the time, he felt a strong urge to tirelessly grind those events every day. In the end, he received a few dozen of the top event items. Unbeknownst to him at the time, those items would be worth tens of thousands in server currency within a year.
As 2019 wrapped up, Cosmic started to recruit more and more deckhands. Due to the ongoing conflict with [DD]], ROME needed more legionaries to help defend the empire. Cosmic trained many of these new deckhands to be capable soldiers in the Roman Army. A few of these recruits went on to become prominent members and good friends of Golden. Such members included Enderzalt, Silent_Knight176, and TacticalNukerz.
