—Pi abandons Pi Hole
After suffering attacks from inside and out, it lost a mayor and fell into ruin, but was later revived anew.
|It was fair game to all. His fault for not having his friends claim the chests, or put them underground. better yet, he could have put them IN his claimed land, and yes, he did have some. There was about 5 people in that village. They did not ALL have "claiming problems"||”|
—Panda regrets nothing
GrowthPi founded Pi Hole on 2E:85.Located a kilometer west of Redwood Gardens along Garden Path, Pi Hole served as a simple farming community for many of Pi's friends. For a time, it quietly thrived in peaceful harmony.
Haywire was accused of theft by multiple residents and placed on probation. According to Elite, this apparently led to the collapse of the alliance with Wrathgard and the eventual decline of the community.
After successive raids by bandits and reavers, Pi Hole began to decline.
Some residents were critical of Pi's administrative talents, in particular his struggles with keeping essential town property claimed to protect it from theft. After a raid by Panda, Elite arranged a sit-down between him and Pi and the two came to a trading arrangement.
Nevertheless, three weeks later Panda infilitrated the town and stole most of its valuables, leaving little left behind, though he denied breaking their monster spawners. Pi denounced his actions in the Forum. Panda was unapologetic and pointed out that it was his own fault for leaving land unclaimed. Five days later, Panda founded PandaCorp in part with the stolen goods from Pi Hole.
On 2E:123, Pi chose to resign as mayor, abandon Pi Hole, and go into self-imposed exile.
Pi Hole became a ghostly ruin occasionally explored by curious scavengers.
PokeCrafter, one of the town's earliest residents, refused to leave and maintained the claims around his home despite the threat of bandit pillagers.
The Serkrs set several pitfall traps in the region, hoping to entrap their soldiers.
Elite recaptured the town on 2E:139.
A New Mayor
To honor the memory of Pi, Elite decided to restore Pi Hole and become its new mayor. He repaired the outer walls, installed new mob spawners for its XP farm, and attracted new residents.
The town remained functioning throughout the rest of the Second Era, but its activity waned after Elite joined the Serkrs and focused on faction affairs. This led to Pi Hole falling under the Serkr umbrella, independent but within their sphere of protection.
