Past Affiliation with the Zoomers
The Zoomer migration took place around late 2019 and early 2020 with players from the politcal factions servers Geographica and Colenia migrating to Civ Servers such as CivClassics 2.0 and CivRealms 2.0. This invasion was caused by an advertisement in the political factions history discord Geocon requested by two oldfriends to increase player numbers on CivRealms, which was run at the time by Ferro. After the invasion the Geographica Zoomers, under the previous title Zoureich or Owoist Alliance, settled in Varathia on CivRealms 2.0 after the December 7th Pearlings before being recruited for New Cascadia on CivClassics, this transition to the Civ genre would fracture the Zoomers into two groups; a group that would stay in the Political Factions genre, and the rest moving onto Civ which is where the present Zoomers originated from. Things would go well until the 21st and 22nd of December 2019 when player Adderall and a few members of the Owoist group, now known as the Zoomers, entered into a scuffle with NATO personnel around Mount Augusta. This resulted in the pearling of Ferro on the 22nd of December 2019 by Kaloa HG, and subsequent transfer to BennyZ to be held in a UDF vault due to association with the group. This would result in Ferro mainly playing on CivRealms for around the next year, it is assumed that the pearl on CivClassics was released at the end of the Infinity War though an exact time is not certain.
CivRealms 2.0 Early
After their exile pearling on CivClassics, Ferro would devote most of their time on CivRealms 2.0. Mainly starting out as a newfriend in Varathia they would forge a name for themselves by building around 1/3 of Varathia's roads and Chesham which led them to become one of the first two Praetorian Guard's for Varathia as well as being in charge of Varathian infrastructure. They would continue this routine for the next 5 months while tensions increased across the server with the influx of NATO refugees and Zoomers, which would led to them eventually being pearled once by HanTzu and another time by Adderral, both of which were freed in under a day, the former being one of the causes of the Attack on Varathia Vault and the following First Hell War.
During the very first stages of the First Hell War, Ferro would be pearled by TwigBranch in Olendor and held until the end of the war when they were broken out of one of four spikes by Coalition forces. After the war, they alongside other Varathian's started a period of frantic defense construction and vault clearing would start which would lead to their burnout for a week after digging the start of the infamous Varathia Trench. They would come back in full force during the Summer of 2020 signing the Otona-Varathian treaty leading to the unification of Otonabee and Varathia, and also helped rebuild Varathia in time for the Second Hell War, which despite not being pearled, would result in the raiding and looting of their and other Varathian's property due to Boris and Olympia, a renamed and reformed Hell.
The Second Hell War brought a point of the lowest activity and morale in Varathian history, which affected Ferro due to their perceived guilt of signing the declaration of war and not negotiating. During and after the war, the now Otona-Varathian Empire was annexed into Carbon and hence led to Ferro becoming more active as a member of Carbon. After the war, very little progress was done besides digging trenches and trying to finish Varathian Vault, this would be seen across CivRealms as the Second Hell War was seen as the beginning to the end of the server by some. However, activity began picking up and the server found itself at war again after the obbybombing of CivCorp by Blackwater, Chungus, Laconia, and Bobanga.
CivRealms 2.0 Great War
On the onset of the Great War, most Varathian soldiers were mobilized and started preparing defensive structures and bunkers across Varathia, as well as the leasing of Varathia Vault to Oasis and Carbonite troops as a base of operations to hunt and pearl the people responsible for the CivCorp Attack. This would led to Ferro stocking and guarding the vault. Predictably, the now United Southern Alliance, USA, that formed from the nations that attacked CivCorp viewed this as Varathia joining in the war and prepared a skybridge to attack the vault, this would result in 3 days of fighting in and around the vault until it fell on the 1st of October, 2020. Ferro alongside other fighters then retreated to Asgard and Heaven to begin preparations and stocking for the next 19 days. Heaven was attacked on the 20th of October 2020, which led to Ferro logging on and beginning to defend, they would shoot and pearl Hysterics33, but get pearled around 20 minutes later by Adderall. The quick sucession of pearlings was due to RNG hits being added which led to both sides losing approximately 4 pearls each. After this they would remain pearled until erroneously freed on the 11th of November 2020 by molliam. Afterwards Ferro helped attack Void and Bloodcrew Vaults as well as Chungus to disable any and all offensive structures built by USA, this would lead to them being pearled once by Kayla in Chungus, which would be stored in Cantina Vault then released that day by HiImPosey. They were pearled again this time by Crimeo due to prisonpearl glitching after falling into a trench during a fight with MamaTom on the 21st of November 2020, which would then be held in Savagaurd until its destruction by Coalition forces on the 23rd of November 2020.
CivRealms 2.0 Late
After the War, Ferro would spend most of their time finishing builds around Varathia and traveling around the continent to take screenshots. However the first new bit of action would be on the 5th of December 2020, when Seraphim_Here pearled Pope Leobonet in Norlund during the Carrot Festival and proceeded to run into Zen to hide in a makeshift bunker, Ferro would quickly respond to this by breaching Seraphim's bunker and pearling him within 30 minutes. This resulted in the December 9th, 2020, Zen Altercation where Seraphim_Here and S4NTA would fight as a punishment for pearling Leobonet, of which Ferro would spectate. Afterwards as activity began to die down and the server's life cycle began to die, Ferro would roam the continent and help pearl left over USA members and bring them to Heaven. This would last for the next 7 months much to the disapproval of the remaining CivRealms players. Around the start of July 2021, Ferro left CivRealms due to drama and begin anew on CivClassics.
Ferro, having already been on CivClassics before, would get acquainted to the server relatively quickly and started accumulating a good amount of wealth within 3 days. They would also move from Caledonia to Icenia and attain citizenship for Icenia, and start construction on his home finishing it around July 22nd, thereafter moving again to Yoahtl to try and differ playstyle. Around September 6th, they left Yoahtl and joined Acadia to help the relatively new nation.
CivClassics 2.0 Late
As a member of Acadia, Ferro would go on to construct a house in the Thompson region of the nation as well as construct a tree farm next door. Around the 20th of September, the player RainOfPain125 rejoined the server briefly after being banned for approximately 3 months and was welcomed by members of the nation of Consortium this resulted in a brief diplomatic crisis within Acadia as tensions between Acadia and Consortium quickly soured due to the manipulation of hawkeye of members of Acadia and attempted use of Rainie's location as leverage, on the 23rd of September a team of three Acadians including Ferro would enter Consortium and try to locate Rainie or his logout position, this would eventually result in the pearling of all members of Consortium. After this brief battle the members of Consortium would be freed and their bunker would be occupied until it was deemed that Rainie would not return to the server. In October as the server was slowing down due to school for some members of the community, Ferro worked on infrastructure in and between Acadia and other nations as well as other projects within the nation. On the 16th of October after a confrontation between East Columbia and NWO that resulted in old screenshots being posted to the CivClassic's, Ferro would travel across the map and pearl the player SinjoroJoCrafter. Alongside the pearling they replied the message "Fuck off and die" to player Saren Solaris on the CivClassic's discord as well as to players Solitaire7, MechanicalRift, and Yergo in the UDF discord and recieved a ban for approximately 1.5 Months from both the CivClassics server and discord. They would regret saying this as it was wrong before, during, and after they said it and would later apologize for their behavior towards Saren, GDAN, MechanicalRift and Yergo. On December 8th they were unbanned from the server and briefly looked around Acadia before logging off for good as the server was shutting down.
CivReign Beta 1
Ferro joined the CivReign discord briefly in November of 2021 then left to take a 4 to 5 month hiatus from Civ due to the incident in October which they spent focusing on real life matters instead of Civ. They rejoined the CivReign discord in April of 2022 after the incident on CivMC. Upon the launch of the first Beta on April 9th, he played with Acadia and soon after he joined Alexandria. They were soon offered a position as moderator on the CivReign team. As moderator they helped write the rules and moderation guidelines for CivReign and helped with reorganizing the discord to be more user friendly. On September 1st, 2022 they left the staff team due to differences in direction.
