Rakovan is a group lead by Bemosh with co-leaders Arctyk and CluckyCat, and members Ddyhr, PaffaCubes, Mirqoh, BOB225225, and Kheidge. Rakovan's main focuses remain farming, griefing, and mapart.
Greifing and Trading
Rakovan had never really traded Pre-January21, but with newly found farms they were becoming much more active in the trading community (Mainly selling GP).
The first Major grief that Rakovan did was destroying D1ckaD1cka's solo base and stopping The Greys production of Gunpower.
They have also hit a few minor bases such as Emcee's blaze farm and over 32 spawn bases.
Rakovan found two unopened end portals within the span of two weeks.
Rakovan was established 9/15/20, At this time the group and its original 5 members held little to no influence at all. After their first base was griefed (Rakovan 1) only two of those original 5 remained.
This was a time of rebirth for the faction, as the first two members (Bemosh & ConstanceNoise) were able to acquire new members with no risk. They brought on CluckyCat, Arkyyn, and Sobushleague who all had skills a faction would desperately need. With the new members the faction migrated to Rakovan 2 that now serves as the main base.
The Griefs of Lent
Lent of 2021 featured the emergence of many new groups, particularly ones focused on PvP at spawn and ones focused on griefing, and had a level of video documentation of griefs unprecedented in Purity history. Durring the Griefs of Lent, Rakovan rose to be a top griefing faction, combining violence and economic strategy to create a one-of-a kind griefing experience.

The Spawn Wars and the ban of ConstanceNoise
Players wRongo and w3no started building the obsidian roof above spawn, brining the majority of the group in to help construct the project. This lead directly to the creation of Pogtown. While some members were griefing Pogtown, they were sent a link of cords to a base, around 16k, 16k. While looting the base, ConstanceNoise found a bait chest, and was banned next morning.
Because ConstanceNoise played at night he was a bridge between members and a great basehunter. He was one of the most significant players to be part of Rakovan. As ConstanceNoise was Bemosh's best friend, the group fell because less raids were occurring.
Recruitment brought many new members such as Kheidge, BOB225225, PaffaCubes, Ddyhr, and Mirqoh, The group could now be reborn.
The second Recruitment added players Daddyiscoming Domagawah Rblx and zUni.
The Roaring Desert
Members BOB225225, Khiedge, and DDYHR were sent out to the building site of R3 to construct a simple farm base, but turned into much more. Making friendships, larping in chat, and getting profits was all business done from the headquarters of R3. Soon, resources were flowing and Rakovan was returning to its previous glory. Another base, R4, was founded and some members were sent off to help. This abandonment lead to the grim death of R3. After the newly founded base R4 was griefed, life sprung again in R3, but so did many internal conflicts. Member Mirqoh was being autistic as one does, and ended up leaking R4 out of spite. This kept the group suspicious of each other with many mysteries of base leaking still widely accepted, but nothing is set in stone.
Roaming Through The Sands
Left baseless, the remaining members of Rakovan were sent out to make a spawn base. Arctyk managed to dig up coordinates to an old end portal discovered times long ago, and a base was shortly discovered. The end portal opening was held as a in-game event for everyone's ears to attend, and after the ceremony was over, construction begun. Farms were placed into caverns dug out by raw, villagers sent in through rigorous thousand block journeys through active nether. But sooner or later, it was all over just as it had begun. Thesto had discovered the base along with Apersu, and the base went down in a fight between Frrost, Daddy, Thesto, and Apersu. Although Frrost and Daddy were successful in their fights, the base was compromised.
Into The Moss
Construction of the great Mossad had begun and was well underway not long after the destruction of the gateway. 2 major groups joined together with select members from Rakovan and NSO collaborating to make the most ambitious base of all time. This fun was cut short by a Chadlets "Fight Club" Unfortunately
Back to Basics
After Rakovan was spread thin among many bases, and distrust shrouded the group, they began to fall in the public eye. Behind the scenes, 4 of what were consisted among the top 4 most trusted members reunited to return to the last standing Rakovan base. With construction and collaboration increasing fast, Rakovan is showing signs of perhaps the most wealthy base thus far. Although the levels of larp may never be achieved again, Rakovan is rebuilding stronger and better with little notice from the public eye.
The first base of Rakovan include the original members and was later insided by King Julian.
The second and isolated Rakovan base. Inhabited by the leaders and OG members, this was the hub of Rakovan for a few months durring construction of R3. Discovered by Jason3M (Professional Exploiter and Master of the Pie) it was partially destroyed after standing for over 10 months. (Next time just buy a shulker of wood instead of hobo mining a forest which lead to the fall of the base)
The 3rd base. Around 3 months into building it was leaked by notorious bad pvper and horrible basemate Mirqoh to the public, but all the resources were saved and the rest of the base was self griefed before any outside damage could be done.
The 4th base, 3 weeks into building time was insided by the Chadlets, but once again birthed something much bigger and greater then what was lost.
Yk, it is out there. Somewhere... Hella profitable and second longest lasting base.
Moss went boom boom, Biggest and most intuitive farm tech of them all, and major builds, close to forming to one really nice base. Built as a conjoined base between Rakovan, NSO, and the Pumpkin Legion. This base was again griefed by the Chandlers.
Rakovan was once a small faction but when they were devastated by the great New Year's spree of the Chadlets newly recruited faction members Arkyyn(Arctyk), Clucky, and Constance Noise brought rakovan back better than ever as an actually established faction with the trio learning more about redstone from the farms they griefed, ironically. The spree from the Chadlets may have been devastating but it had a lot of side effects and thus the great Rakovan emerged...this was almost the cause of the rebirth..long live Rakovan! -PaffaCubes
