In the deep past of Freedonia, the castle of Glenfiddich was built by Duke Dzirt, the ruler of the surrounding country. A tyrant and murderer, Dzirt was duly hated by his subjects and neighboring nobles alike, making it a necessity for him to live in a strong fortress, cold and unpleasant as it must have been back then before the invention of glass windows.

One of his biggest rivals was the emperor's uncle. One day Dzirt and his confidants got drunk and raided his home, killing him in the process. By this deed, Dzirt doomed himself to eternal pursuit.

The emperor was furious when he learned of the violent death of his relative and ordered the capture of Dzirt, dead or alive. Having no allies left in Freedonia, Dzirt and his followers prepared their seemingly impenetrable fortress for siege. The emperor tasked General Dio with the attack on Glenfiddich Castle. But even after two years of siege, the castle being completely cut off from the rest of the world, Dzirt still laughed at all the fruitless attempts to conquer his unassailable fortress. Dio was desperate and he decided to go on a suicide mission. He asked his men to shoot him over the castle walls with a catapult at night. Despite concerns that he might be going mad, his soldiers obeyed — and miraculously, he landed in the castle's fountain and survived, heavily wounded. Dio opened the main gate and his men took the castle, killing everyone inside. Unfortunately, Dio's wounds were too grave and he died the same night.

The emperor, impressed by Dio's courage, decided to give Glenfiddich Castle to Dio's eldest son. Under his rule, the once sinister fortress was turned into a welcoming fortified town and soon several walled districts had to be added to accommodate the growing number of inhabitants. Even nowadays, the town of Glenfiddich is still ruled by a descendant of General Dio, getplayerhead.sh?andreydio&16.png andreydio, who continues his ancestors' work.

Some careless people have claimed this account of Glenfiddich's history to be made up bullshit and that the town was, in fact, founded by getplayerhead.sh?andreydio&16.png andreydio and getplayerhead.sh?mrsprinkly&16.png mrsprinkly in much more recent times, and is still being developed and expanded by Glen Team. Their foolishness becomes obvious when taking into account the fact that every single one of them has managed to stab himself while polishing his sword, shortly after making that completely unfounded statement.

Rumors have been spreading that a great evil is lurking somewhere deep below the city. This photo was retrieved from the body of an unfortunate adventurer:

Festivities In Glenfiddich

There will be different festivities all over the next year and Glenfiddich will display some infront of the big "Glen" sign

For Christmas, getplayerhead.sh?Ellen124&16.png Ellen124, getplayerhead.sh?werdnaz&16.png werdnaz, and getplayerhead.sh?bubba_basti&16.png bubba_basti have made a christmas tree:

For Chinese New Year, getplayerhead.sh?The_Jackal_249&16.png The_Jackal_249 and getplayerhead.sh?bubba_basti&16.png bubba_basti made a chinese symbol and lanterns around it. The chinese symbols translate to "Water Dragon", which is the next animal of the chinese calendar.

The Glenfiddich Pigchinko arena fills the whole district. It was completely rebuilt in early 2012 to make use of the new Craftbook ICs programmed by getplayerhead.sh?Drathus42&16.png Drathus42, and to improve its overall appearance.


Laphroaig

Winter district being developed by getplayerhead.sh?andreydio&16.png andreydio.

  • Huge snowball (wip)

Bowmore

All buildings in this district adhere to the theme of "wood":

Dalmore

New district with a modern style. getplayerhead.sh?bubba_basti&16.png bubba_basti is building here, with support from getplayerhead.sh?Ellen124&16.png Ellen124.

Jungle District

This artificial jungle was built by getplayerhead.sh?nosefish&16.png nosefish after the update to Minecraft version 1.2.4 and houses the Jungle Tree Harvester. An elevated wooden path leads visitors around. Some of the trees can be climbed and offer a spectacular view of the city. At night, the jungle is sparingly lit and not particularly safe.

Expansion Area 1

This expansion area has doubled the size of Glenfiddich, adding an imperial feel to the area by using 1.8 stone-brick for the walls. It took one whole day for getplayerhead.sh?fmxstick&16.png fmxstick and getplayerhead.sh?glitch80&16.png glitch80 to clear areas and build the walls.

The expansion has put the following inside the walls of Glenfiddich:


Harbour

Started by getplayerhead.sh?bubba_basti&16.png bubba_basti and expanded by many others, the harbour connects Glenfiddich with the destinations of the Great Circle- and Aeginus Boat Routes. Notable builds here include

The harbour at night

Ships

ShinOkaMatsu Village(村のしんおかまつ)

This Village is made in a Japanese style on the hills inside the expansion area by getplayerhead.sh?fmxstick&16.png fmxstick. The village gathered builders far and wide around Freedonia so fmxstick expanded the village into the land closer to fmxstick's Bujutsu Temple and the rice fields.

Residents/contributors

Mines of Glen

Outside the walls near the Dalmore district, a shaft tower marks the location of a new mining camp.

Expansion Area 2

As Glenfiddich filled up again it had to expand to give new Glen Team members an area to build within Glenfiddich this time it has expanded to the south.
