History

Beta Island was originally located on the Midnight Ocean. The name "Beta," like all of the Midnight Ocean's capital islands, comes from a Greek letter: Beta (Β β).

The Beta Island monument is located directly northwest of the palace.

Beta I - 2004-10-09, Water Sleeps defeated Allied Foundation in a nine round sinking blockade to colonize the island.

The main phase of building construction finished in January 2005. Water Sleeps celebrated this by throwing the One Million Poe Beta Blast[1] party in February 2005, giving away a full one million poe in cash and prizes (including the deed to a weavery shoppe, Mouse on the Loom).

Beta II - 2007-07-07, Water Sleeps successfully defended Beta from the Brigand King, The Widow Queen, in a three round sinking blockade. The Widow Queen and all her fleet had fallen during round two, leaving round three uncontested.

Beta VI - 2009-09-27, The Brigand King Azarbad the Great defeated Folie Circulaire in a three round, uncontested blockade to take control of the island. Folie Circulaire ceded the island prior to disbanding.[2]

Beta VII - 2009-10-04, Anchor Management defeated Azarbad the Great and Water Sleeps in a five round sinking blockade to take control of the island.

Beta VIII - 2010-04-03, Anchor Management successfully defended against Fallen in a four round sinking blockade.
