Syn won the elections in Japan after FenZenyatta abdicated the throne. They are the current sitting Emperor of Japan since June 15th, 2019.


Pre-Terra Nova


Early History

Synargle made their first town in the British Isles when they first joined the server but was before they decided to abandon it to join PineappleHaven. Where they met jonathan4581. Synargle helped them as second-in-command for the nation.

When the nation was disbanded by jonathan4581 suddenly, Syn went to join the growing town of California and met GuardedCharlie. However Syn didn't stay for long and would leave the next morning to join ProvingUnique's town Macon.


When Synargle joined Macon which would later be renamed to Georgia, they were approached by the server's owner Fix to join the Staff Team. Synargle accepted.

Synargle helped ProvingUnique build their town and accompanied him to PDU Congress meetings. Eventually Syn once again became the second-in-command of a town. When ProvingUnique decided to leave the PDU in an instrumental political move due to rumours of national taxation, Synargle aided him during the transition.


When ProvingUnique left Panama to make the favoured Prestige WorldWide, or more commonly referred to as simply PWW, he hadn't planned for the unforeseen rapid growth in population. He soon had no choice but to leave the server on a long hiatus for other commitments and made Synargle the leader of the nation.

With the leadership and the pressure it brought, Syn decided that they would not rule alone. Their close friend's Arganog and johnsonk2 were chosen to help lead the nation, who had joined the PWW at it's inception. With guidance of these three, the nation would reach new heights and eventually would hit the top of the server's nation list and stay at the top for several eras.

Prestige would achieve a number of things, such as breaking the population record and becoming the largest nation the server has ever seen. New nations would be born from it such as Manchuria which would later become Jing. Numerous wars would be fought with different nations such as the USA, Praxis and Maracaibo. After discussions, Sweden was to be vassalized and King Framotosh became the fourth leader of the PWW.

Through it's lifetime the nation suffered from a constant onslaught of criticism which painted them as tyrants and imperialists. The PWW had ruled the server with it's massive joint army made up of Prestige, Swedish and Jing soldiers which seemed to even intimidate allies. After much consideration, Synargle decided to suddenly disband the nation much to shock of the rest server during the New Era.

Hiatus and Return

Synargle decided to take a break from the server for just over a month before rejoining. On return they decided join Jing to begin anew and lead the new town of Chang-an. Synargle decided to stay in Jing for about month and worked up to an adviser role to the emperor before leaving to join Berlin and then joining Valkyria.

Synargle was eventually crowned as the guardian of Valkyria and made a for the huge palace for royal family in Greenland. They again stayed for just over a month but when the nation soon grew inactive they decided to abdicate the crown back to Devynaeri.

Syn later joined a town in the Caspian States known as Trebizond lead by PolkadotMonkey before deciding to start their own town in Luxembourg which was aptly named Schengen and joined Germany. However this changed once more as they began to aid in the revival of the British state, making Glasgow in Scotland and joining the UK. Reviving their very first town.

Synargle seemingly lost in the inactivity of Britain chooses to leave Glasgow and to join Tokyo, one of the largest towns at the current time. They helped create the store at spawn named Tetris. Some time has since passed during the server's inactivity period.

Terra Nova

Before the initial announcement of Terra Nova, Synargle was still playing on Classic somewhat regularly. When the update was eventually announced Syn decided to help pursue the nation of Papacy Worldwide (PWW) which was being led by former Pope, Sarmango. The PWW was to be a globalist nation made by old players for old players from Classic. This was until in October when the release date of Terra Nova was revealed and a list of updates on how the server will function was released following the reveal. One of the new features announced was a new range limit around nation capitals, meaning only towns within the range radius of the capital could join the nation. Players dispersed from the PWW after the news has hit a roadblock in their former plans, with some players flocking to Panama and Judah. Syn having nowhere-else

The 'Mandate of Creation' was another document created by Syn earlier on in the HRE's development.

to go at that time consulted other players in similar positions to their own and started conversing to ultil0l and moope787. After a short time, it was decided between them all to plan and form the Holy Roman Empire or the HRE. During this time they managed to invite more than a few players to the nation such as Zebbss, EchoOcelot and Jooey83 They went as far as to start drafting a Charter and planning to induct Denmark into HRE. Problems like a war with Sweden and Prussia however stopped them in their tracks. Deciding it wasn't worth the effort or time and noting the dwindle in activity, Syn and moope787 both left and would eventually choose to join Byzantium a few days before release as they were already friendly with its leaders. Synargle offered to found the capital themself during early access and to help the nation plan ahead before the server launch.

Before Launch and Founding Constantinople

Early access began on October 26th and marked the beginning of Terra Nova. Synargle joined right on start, spawning in Eastern India. From there Syn headed straight for the Bosporus Strait to be the first to settle the town of Constantinople. Being successful, Constantinople marked the first town of Byzantium to made on the map and was the fourth town in Europe. While non-donators couldn't join until the official launch on the Nov 1st, Syn chose to productively use their time before the launch to gather resources and start developing the town. As Syn prepared for the launch, they herded cows and sheep to form farms for a plentiful food source and was one of the first players on the server to make an enchantment table. Syn would continue to mine for hours on end to find gold and start expanding the town westwards from the Golden Horn. Constantinople was expanded by all the available eight chunks before the launch.

After Launch and Birth of Byzantium

Upon the night of the launch on November 1st, Synargle handed the town over to the Augusta Florene while also becoming a Town Councillor. Many other players arrived shortly. During the early hours after launch, Syn helped others in the town to recruit players. Constantinople would eventually hit the top of the town's list and would float around in the first page for the following weeks. On Discord, Syn offered to help manage the Byzantium discord and self-nominated themself to be the First Chairman on the Committee for Foreign Affairs which required them to help advise the Augusta on foreign-related matters. They continued to gather resources and mine gold to help reach the goal of forming a towny nation as well as supporting in other places such as giving gold to the towns of Ancyra and Troy. Syn was named as the Patriarch of Constantinople following the creation of the Byzantium State as well as receiving an honorary seat on the Byzantium Senate. Syn would take part in the first Senate hearing and went on to help finish drafting the Constitution of Byzantium.
