§oForeword by the author
Having known NateMagic, I will try and keep the book as unbiased as possible. I hope you enjoy my recollection of events of a very noteworthy individual

§r§oNate of Many Names
§rArchitect. Statesman. Traitor. NateMagic would fulfill many roles through his life during the First Era* of CivCraft. The goal of this book is to outline the life of a notable character of the Civcraft story,
Page 6 of 32
also give some insight into the history of key events that Nate was involved in. During the First Era, Nate would go from a wanderer, to a notable citizen of Lazuli, a war veteren, to a Lazulian council member, an architect of the first maester

The Citadel, to a traitor of all of Civcraft. So, we'll start at the beginning.

§r§oJourney to Lazuli
§r NateMagic joined Civcraft around late April, early May of 2012. His journey began like most Civcraftians. He awoke in an unfamiliar place. Nate wandered for a few days before making contact with a
Page 9 of 32
friend of his, blizzxx, who was currently living in Lazuli, a small city at the time, which was rapidly growing. A perfect place for a new citizen of Civcraft to make a name for himself. Once he arrived in Lazuli, he, blizzxx, Squoitle, and Alexzandria
Page 10 of 32
began construction on their pirate ship, nestled on the coast of Lazuli's Newtown district. Nate arrived at an interesting time in Lazuli's history. War was afoot as a Lazulian splinter group known as "The Pumpkin Jacks" had recently launched terror
Page 11 of 32
attacks on the city. Nate was not in Lazuli long before he would make a name for himself in the blossoming Republic.

§r§oThe Lazuli-Jack War
§rOn the 29th of April, 2012, at around 7 pm Eastern, the Pumpkin Jacks launched their terror attack on the city of Lazuli. The complete history of the war is a subject for another book, but this is where Nate
Page 13 of 32
would distinguish himself as a notable Lazulian.
On the 5th of May, 2012, the Pumpkin Jacks along with a group of hired mercenaries known as Second Cell attacked Lazuli, pearling many of the citizens including the head of state at the time,
Page 14 of 32
SomethingSaucy, and most of the current Lazulian Council. They were able to sucessfully hold the city and repel counter-attacks from Lazuli's allies for several hours.
A few days prior to the final attack, Nate assisted in establishing the first
Page 15 of 32
Lazulian snitch network around the city. This would help tremendously when the Jacks would lauch their attack.
Nate would be involved in defending his pirate ship against the Jacks, along with Lazulian council member Ttocs_is_Awe. Eventually, they
Page 16 of 32
The war was over, Lazuli was defeated. Nate almost left the city at that point, but no doubt he was now attached to his first real home in Civcraft. Out of the fires of war, Nate was now an established and respected Lazulian.
Page 17 of 32
§rAfter the war, Founder* SomethingSaucy stepped down, and Ttocs_is_Awe became the new leader of the Republic of Lazuli, bringing in a new council with him. On the 12th of May, 2012,
Page 18 of 32
NateMagic, along with lem0nland91111 and Logic_Man were sworn in as the new council of Lazuli. Nate would remain a councilman up uintil Lazuli's decline in late July of 2012.
During this time (after the war, and before the exodus of Lazulian
Page 19 of 32
citizens) the Republic of Lazuli reached the peak of its power and influence. Nate would establish a mining colony near the world border to keep the government's coffers filled. After the fall of Lazuli, Nate would retreat to the old mining outpost to

begin work on the Citadel.

Page 21 of 32
§rNateMagic began work on the Citadel sometime in late 2012, before becoming too busy with real life, when he relinquished head architectural duties of the Citadel to SomethingSaucy. He and Ttocs_is_Awe
Page 22 of 32
be inspired by the Citadel to form the Maester Alliance, which is still around to this day. This makes NateMagic a technical founder of the Alliance but the true extent of that is open for debate.
Later on, Nate would come to disagree with
Page 23 of 32
what Maesters Saucy and Ttocs had done to the Citadel, even threatening to burn the flags housed in Maester Ttocs' Hall of Nations. Nate had become disillusioned with was Civcraft had become and his distaste for the Anarcho-Capitalists had readily
Page 24 of 32
apparent. The extent of his distaste would become apparent during the events of the Great HCF Invasion.

§r§oThe HCF Invasion of Civcraft
§rThe HCF (the common name given to several factions of players from a seperate server, HCFactions) invaded Civcraft to disrupt the satus quo and kill/pearl as many people as they could.
Page 26 of 32
NateMagic sold them weapons and armor and gave them access to his snitch network. It's up for debate whether or not they actually purchased them or if Nate simply gave them to HCF. Nate maintained his innocence as a simple seller of goods with no
Page 27 of 32
alternate intentions. However, I can tell you that Nate wanted the destruction of the Ancaps and wanted to force Ttk2 (praise be unto Him) to end the First Era and begin the Second Era. He felt the server had stagnated under the rule of the AnCap 'World
Page 28 of 32
Police' and thought that assisting an invasion force from a hardcore pvp server would bring the change he wanted so desperately.
NateMagic would be pearled by Foofed on the 11th of December, 2012 (and again on the 21st of January).
Page 29 of 32
maintained his innocence as a simple arms dealer using the free market, but very few people came to his side. His reputation never really recovered, even after the HCF fiasco died down.
Even so, I still call him friend.
