Sun–Er, Monday Funday: Volume 2, Issue 3

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA—Same great newspaper, on a Monday this week! Read on for a detailed rundown of our week in the third edition of our second volume of Sunday-Funday, written by your favorite rodent-lover, Editor HamsterloverL! In this week’s edition, read on for news on a VERY special celebration coming up in the RFCP server!!!!!

As the RFCP approaches its second anniversary, it is time to reflect on our past, present, and future.  Join us as we celebrate our extensive army history with a HUGE week-long celebration, culminating with an even BIGGER party on June 5th!

A Brief History of RFCP

Prior Bumble: the man, the myth, and the legend (literally) who started it all.  Sure, we all know that!  But what some of our newer members may not know is the story behind the incredible founder of the RFCP.  

Picture this:

It is June 5th, 2019 at around 9:00 PM Eastern Standard Time. On a warm, early summer evening, one dark purple penguin decides to log onto Club Penguin Rewritten, unaware of the incredible legacy that he will begin within mere minutes.  Waddling into the Command Room of the Elite Penguin Force, he decides to spend the evening playing the classic Club Penguin tower defense game, System Defender.  While playing the game, he notices that the table in front of him has filled up.  All but one seat at the Command Room table is taken…

Our predominant purple protagonist naturally takes the seat at the head of the table.  The room goes quiet, as confused penguins look at one another, anxiously wondering what will happen next.  One brave voice emerges from the silence: “Uhhh, someone say something.”

These four words sparked a fire inside of our hero.  Taking a deep breath, Prior Bumble knew what needed to be done.  With his most authoritative voice, from his days as Second-in-Command of the People’s Republic Army (PRA), Prior began barking out orders to the rest of the penguins at the table.  Instantly captivated by his dominance, penguins began flocking from all over the island to follow his orders.  Cries of “Sir! Prior, sir!” resonated throughout the EPF room, as these followers engaged in these tasks based on strategic spying missions. The Recon Federation of Club Penguin was born: named after the militaristic spying operations that characterize reconnaissance.

Within days, the RFCP’s following became too massive for in-game operations, and a Discord server was created to better organize the strategies of the organization on June 11th, 2019.  The organization’s first major conflict would occur shortly after, when it seemed that the RFCP had competition with a new gang: The Mopia.  When these light blue penguins began taking over the sacred land of the iceberg, the RFCP would not sit idly.  

With force, and then diplomatic action, being taken to reclaim the sacred ground, the RFCP had cemented its legacy as an army to be reckoned with.  Soon enough, Prior Bumble and the RFCP sealed the deal by entering the Club Penguin Army Community as an official army.  

The rest is history!

Note:  The history of the RFCP is much more extensive than what is listed here, visit the RFCP history page here to read the complete history.

Celebrating 2 Years of RFCP

Most armies fail to survive their first week or even month.  But the Recon Federation’s major accomplishment of surviving 2 years even throughout countless conflicts is a cause to celebrate!  Several RFCP veterans who remember the first anniversary celebration vividly have come together to plan an even greater celebration for our amazing troops who make our incredible army possible!

Many of these events stem from the culture and lore of the army, such as an original EPF-styled roleplay, a reenactment of our first war with the Lime Green Army, and a celebration at the official restaurant of RFCP: Lucky’s Bar!  Join us for these incredible moments of history! 

Interview with Prior

Q: How does it feel being the founder of an army that has reached 2 years of activity?

A: I am full of pride. Many armies created in this modern age do not survive more than a few months if not weeks. RFCP is a bold and historic exception. Our longevity, in the face of unprecedented opposition, is a miraculous and powerful achievement that no one can take away from us. 

Q: When you originally created RFCP, were you expecting it to turn into a legacy? 

A: Goddamn right I was.

RFCP Fun Facts

  • The triangle in the center of the RFCP flag is not red, as is commonly thought. It is actually a shade of reddish brown-hex code #862007 to be exact!
  • The army that the RFCP had the most wars with was the LGA: with a whopping total of 3 wars IN A ROW!!! (We won them all–even LGA, now our ally, concedes this).
  • While the RFCP has had 3 people take the role of Commander throughout its history, there have been 5 people with the prestigious role of Commissar, 2 of which unprecedentedly held the rank at the same time!
  • Ever wonder who has the most roles in the entire army?  That honor goes to General Sillabye who has an INCREDIBLE total of 71 roles!!!!  Generals Anilia and Microhamster come in next with 60 and 58 roles respectively.  Oddly enough, our own Commander Coolj only has 37 roles!
