The Original South Valyria
South Valyria was the first of the two iterations of South Valyria. South Valyria was located within the savannah of Garama. South Valyria is widely considered less successful in comparison to its successor, Southern Valyria. The town was located mostly underground with little builds appearing above ground.
Life Above Ground
The inhabitants of Southern Valyria have always known life underground. This all changed during the Valyrian Renaissance as the lack of PvP caused many players to fight on other continents as they waited for PvP to return. During this period of time the inhabitants of Southern Valyria decided to turn to building to keep themselves entertained. This created the building age where Southern Valyrians made the first effort to create above ground additions to the town.
The Valyrian Renaissance in 2020
Southern Valyria achieved both world capital and Garama capital. Southern Valyria was revitalized after an influx of new players from other servers which prompted the construction of a new war room and above ground builds. At its peak there was close to 175 town members living in Southern Valyria at once. This number of members made Southern Valyria one of the most powerful towns in all of Loka. The success during the year of 2020 has driven most of the opposition away from Garama.
New Year, New Problems
As 2020 came to an end there was a disruption in the usual alliances of Southern Valyria. In January of 2021 Wolf Force was now a foe of Southern Valyria on Balak. This is due to conflicts between a few individuals from each side specifically Lurnn of Southern Valyria and Tqmen of Valador as their Minecraft egos clash. This lead to both Southern Valyria and Wolf Force were recruiting in order to secure their place on Balak. This clash of giants led to the largest fight in Loka history at the time with 155 players in one fight. On January 15, 2021 for Balak 9 against Wolf Force where Southern Valyria defended 84 attackers successfully with 71 defenders. At the end of January 2021, Southern Valyria had 225 town members and both Garama and World Capital titles defeating Wolf Force who partnered with Requiem.
Rebuilding The Old
Once January came to a close PhoenixTails, Aressem, Fatestay, Lurnn and Sokou left Southern Valyria to rebuild the decaying town of Valyria that once existed in the Marshes of Ascalon. This was a huge change to the town as the full owner of Southern Valyria traded hands from PheonixTails to SigmaFlash. This once again led to a dead period in the town of Southern Valyria, the current full owner SigmaFlash did not want to fight on Balak due to the increased lag caused by the extremely large amount of players thus PvP was a rare occurrence. Due to the lack of PvP on Garama this meant that most of the time spent by town members was used to grind or build. The amount of town members dipped to 180 where it was during the end of 2020.
There are little images of South Valyria available. However, some of the remaining are as follows:
