The 2021 RFCP Olympics

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA—Missed the key moments of our recent tournament? Read on for a recap of the RFCP Olympics!

Olympic symbols - Wikipedia

After wrapping up our 4th semiannual Feddies award show, the next big thing on the horizon for RFCP seemed unclear. February came, and with it some fresh announcements, such as soldier promotions and new blogs, but nothing quite monumental.

This soon took a blazing turn when a torch was left unattended in #news.  A fire soon broke out in the server, as well as a slew of rumors about what this fire could symbolize.

The conspiracy grew until Uncle Satchmo, the Feddiegate 3.0 MVP, forced a statement from Commander Coolj regarding said torch. The Commander revealed on February 6th that the torch was not an ordinary torch, but the symbol of the Olympics!

The first ever RFCP Olympics would begin on February 8th!

While RFCP has held past army-wide contests such as the Snazzy Summer Contest in 2020, what marked this contest notably different was that soldiers could choose their own team in the same spirit as representing countries in the Olympics. 

The teams were The Bumblenators, led by Col. MicroHam, Team Erat Ipso Sacra, led by Commissar Hamster, Art Club, led by Gen. Anilia, and The Vuvuzela Raiders, led by–you guessed it–Maj. Arne! 

All four teams were assigned roles and private channels that could only be seen by people with said roles, and of course server Guardians.  Each soldier would be able to choose their team prior (!!!!) to the event in the #polls channel.

A schedule featuring 12 events across 6 days (two every day) accompanied the Olympics. All events took place at either 7:00 p.m. or 9:00 p.m. EST. A point system was implemented, in which winning a gold medal would earn 300 points, a silver medal would earn 200 points, and a bronze would earn 100 points. All medals and their points would be shared within the team, and the team with the most points would win the Olympics!

Before the start of the competition, 28 soldiers joined each team. There were 6 soldiers each for The Bumblenators and Team Erat Ipso Sacra, and 9 each for Art Club and The Vuvuzela Raiders. Team Erat Ipso Sacra featured a blue uniform, Art Club wore Pink, The Vuvuzela Raiders wore orange and blue, and The Bumblenators wore sparkly purple–and they even had a logo!

The first event took place on the 8th of February, and it was a fun competition. Naturally, it was won by Art Club, with Anilia claiming the gold medal, while the silver went to Maj. Aqua from the Vuvuzela Raiders, and the bronze medal went to good ol’ Sgt. Krispy, from Team Erat Ipso Sacra. Also I had a stroke while drawing on my phone during the event.

Two hours later, a four-way practice battle took place, which was won by Team Erat Ipso Sacra, followed by The Vuvuzela Raiders, and then the Bumblenators, causing a tie for first place between the Vuvuzela Raiders and Team Erat Ipso Sacra.  This ended Day 1 of the competition with The Bumblenators rock bottom and Art Club in third place.

Day 2 started with the 100 Meter Scroll. While there was a general confusion about how it would play out in the beginning, the rules became more clear during the event.  On the 100 meter scroll website, you had to scroll downwards an excruciatingly long amount. The gold medal went to Aqua, who completed the scroll in just 3 seconds, prompting some controversy, and the silver medal went to his teammate Maj. Randomplayer10, both from the Vuvuzela Raiders, sending them 500 points clear off the top. Uncle Satchmo got a second bronze medal for The Bumblenators.

At 9:00 p.m., soldiers were greeted with another race, this time across Club Penguin Rewritten Island. Participants would race from the Cove all the way up to the Mountain, and then back down again. Agent Stitches was the hero of the round for Team Erat Ipso Sacra, hitting the top 3 twice and earning the Gold Medal. Retired Field Marshal JoshAfter scored a silver for the Vuvuzela Raiders and the Bumblenators received the bronze thanks to MicroHam.

Gunshot! The race begins!

Day 3 started with a tie for last place between Art Club and the Bumblenators, while Team Erat Ipso Sacra sought to dethrone the reigning Vuvuzela Raiders. A wild Jackbox party took place in voice chat at 7:00 p.m. EST, in which the Vuvuzela Raiders lighted the game up, winning 700 points and the gold medal for their efforts, while the Bumblenators won a silver medal, thus beating Art Class for third place, and lastly, Team Erat Ipso Sacra received the bronze medal.

A surfing competition on Ukahala took place 2 hours later, and participants were required to play in competition mode, take a screenshot of their score, and submit said screenshot to Commissar Hamsterlover or Commander Coolj. The deadline was 2:00 p.m. EST the following day to accommodate different time zones. The gold medal went to The Bumblenators, thanks to Colonel MicroHam, earning their first gold medal. The silver went to the Vuvuzela Raiders and the bronze went to Art Club, being their second medal in general.

Day 4 had an intense start with a typing competition from 7:00-9:00 p.m. EST, and you’d think I would do moderately well, being a blogger!  Unfortunately, not the case! The winner was Gen. Anilia from Art Club at a whopping 85 words per minute, followed by Josh from the Vuvuzela Raiders, and Team Erat Ipso Sacra rolled in for a bronze medal. Except we must report, a mysterious user named Rick Riordan beat Josh in one instance…

The Vuvuzela Raiders had already crossed the 2200 points barrier, and a victory for them could finish the other team’s chances at winning the competition, but when a Jet Pack Adventure competition for the highest score rolled around, they got their first bronze medal, as the Bumblenators won the gold, while the silver medal went to Team Erat Ipso Sacra, allowing both of teams to cross the 1100 points threshold, thus tying them for second place.

Day 5 started off with a recruiting competition, where the format changed slightly.  Instead of medals rewarding points to each team, every new soldier recruited would award the recruiter’s team with 100 points!. It lasted for a whopping 48 hours to accommodate the difficulty of recruitment as well as those in various time zones! A server called the RFCP Invite Party with the Userphone bot in it was created to make said efforts easier for teams.  Each team received their own server where they could DM recruit soldiers.

But while it happened, a dancing competition took place in Ukahala two hours after the start of the recruiting contest. The winners were Team Erat Ipso Sacra, thanks to an inspired Hamster bringing 8000 points in, followed by Random from the Vuvuzela Raiders, who didn’t do too bad with 6000 points. 

Day 6 would end the competitions with a sled racing tournament at 9:00 p.m. EST. Team Erat Ipso Sacra brought the heat to Ukahala, as Club Penguin Rewritten’s Sled Racing minigame was still under development (Ukahala 1, CPR 0). They brought the gold medal home, while the Vuvuzela Raiders in typical fashion went home with the silver, and Art Club got a bronze medal.

The Olympics Closing Ceremonies took place the 15th of February at 7:00 p.m. EST, garnering a max of 16 soldiers. The recruit points were tallied up and a count was made. The results? Well, I could tell you what they were, but I’ll let the scores speak for themselves!

Looking past the salad of reactions, the Olympics came to a close, the winners celebrated, and everyone congratulated each other.  The Vuvuzela Raiders had surpassed the competition with a whopping 2700 points!  In second place came Team Erat Ipso Sacra with their 1800 points.  The Bumblenators were in third place with 1100 points, and Art Club painted their way to last place. The Olympics proved to be a great success, raising maxes, bringing in new soldiers, and stood as an example of how RFCP loves friendly competition!  No matter who wins or loses, we always place the importance of our family first!

RFCP-U Seeks to Educate All in RFCP and CPA

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–Class is back in session!  Read on to learn all about the classes that RFCP University has had to offer! Written by Maj. Arne and Cmdr. Prior.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image0.png

RFCP University, or RFCP-U for short, is one of the army’s many fun divisions, and one of only two open to the non-enlisted public! It was founded on January 9th, 2020, and hosted its first class one week later. This is our first ever blog about RFCP-U, though, and we intend to introduce all this institute of learning has provided our server.

I personally have delved once or twice into RFCP-U’s curriculum (by contributing to a detailed Bumble ancestors timeline), and can attest it’s a cool way to learn about our culture as an army. So I was asked to do some fun research, and compile all the policies and every single class taught to this day into one place so you too can learn about RFCP-U!

The Policies

On January 9th, 2020, Commander Prior Bumble released the plans for RFCP University along with revealing the very first four classes!  Similar to real university classes, each had its own lecture as well as a final exam that, upon passing, would award the soldier with credits toward earning an RFCP-U degree.

There were originally 3 departments: Warfare (WRFR), History (HST), and Culture (CLTR). All focused on RFCP and Club Penguin Armies education–what does effective CPA warfare look like (WRFR)? What happened during the early days of RFCP’s founding (HST)? What elements define RFCP’s familial culture (CLTR)? Then, in May 2020, a fourth department was added–Penguin Latin (PENGL), dedicated exclusively to teaching our army’s unique language. Recently, there have been talks about adding a fifth department, Constitutional Law (CNLW), to train lawyers of our Constitution. We’ll keep you posted!

RFCP-U offers 3 degrees: Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctorate.

“Bachelor’s,” “Master’s,” or “Doctorate” will fill in the blanks of these degrees, accordingly. Degrees came with new perks, but also new mandates:


Pass at least 3 classes, including from at least 2 different departments.

  • Gives you a personalized degree
  • Earns you an RFCP-U Graduate Discord role
  • Awards one-time payment of $500 BB
  • Is required to become an Officer


Pass at least 5 classes, including from at least 3 departments.

  • Gives you a new personalized degree
  • Earns you access to a private channel called #scholars-lounge
  • Awards one-time payment of $500 BB
  • Is required to become a General


Pass at least 8 classes, including at least one from every department.

  • Gives you a new, premium degree
  • Enables you to be referred to as “Dr.” after you retire if you prefer
  • Your name is listed on the website
  • Awards one-time payment of $500 BB
  • Permits you to TEACH an RFCP-U class as a Professor, earning $600 BB a class and the Professor role on Discord
  • Bestows editing perms on the RFCP wiki

If someone feels they know enough to be exempt from this requirement, they may request a 1 on 1 test with Prior Bumble to see if they place out.

The degree is then signed by the Commander and the Dean.

Speaking of, the first Dean appointed by Prior Bumble remains the current Dean–former Commissar Redovyco, now addressed as Dr. Red. Having completed his thesis in RFCP History with a focus on the People’s Republic Army, Dr. Red is an intellectual passionate about teaching and archiving. Archiving, in fact, is one of the University’s missions as well.

Class is in Session!

All classes, as shown below, require you to register your enrollment.

Classes tend to include a syllabus at the beginning outlining how the next hour of class will look for the students. The, the presiding Professor holds office hours for about 30 minutes after class concludes to answer any questions. Having TAs are also possible, but so far there have been none.

The class policies always include raising hands if you have a question, encouraging notetaking, and enforcing an honor-system for the closed-book, closed-note exam at the end.

Attendance is checked at the end of class, too!

Some classes are very serious, such as the shockingly deep analysis of the organization labeled Omega Security, but sometimes the University allows informal, silly lessons as well.

When retired Brigadier Rose became passionate about Penguin Latin (the official language of RFCP), she decided to teach basic Penguin Latin. It also inspired Prior to begin periodic classes on Intermediate Penguin Latin.  These lessons brought the deep culture of the Great Grey Bears to the entire army. This is a great example of how RFCP-U takes pre-existing passions and makes curriculums out of them!

Classes were not always straightforward lectures and exams, as you may have observed.  After a month-long hiatus, the RFCP-U semester of July 2020 would greet us with a class on How to Lead with Speed. In this class, besides memorizing formations and battle tactics, there was a physical exam where soldiers had to successfully lead the army for 10 minutes straight! A similar class to this was the Red Wave class, also ending in a practical evaluation.

The #rfcp-u chat also hosted a live reading of the RFCP History page of the blog with book club styled discussion!  Prior Bumble prompted questions to the soldier body for five days straight after each chapter of the history.  


Of course, none of us can forget the first RFCP-U Graduation, where Michelle Obama gave the commencement speech.

In this first RFCP-U ceremony, the following degrees were awarded:

Doctorate: HamsterLover, Pixie Masters: ShyGuy, CC, Sillabye Bachelor’s: Anilia, Coolj, Pancake, Liam, LilCoffeeBean



The history of the RFCP University is as deep as the history of RFCP itself.  Each semester proves that RFCP-U remains an important part of RFCP culture, educating our soldiers about the customs of our great army. 

All classes are pinned in the #rfcp-u channel if you want to refresh or take the class remotely (you will still have to pass an evaluation from a Professor if you want the credit towards the degree). There will be many more classes in the future as well, and students can expect some of the ones above they may have missed to be repeated, so keep an eye out!

What RFCP-U classes have YOU attended?  What classes would YOU look forward to?  Leave us a comment below and let us know your thoughts!

Editor’s Note: This is a live post that will be updated as more classes are added past the posting date. Many thanks to our great teachers and to Arne for his research!

Valentine’s Day is Upon Us! But How Did it Get Here?

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA—Colonel Shy Guy hits RFCP with a lovely blog (wink wink) on a very special day. Learn about the history of Valentine’s Day and what RFCP is doing to celebrate.

Ahh yes, Valentine’s Day! A beautiful day (to some) to be alive. Aside from the fact that we’re in a pandemic and are required to stay 6 feet apart, we can still see our loved ones (virtually of course) and still send lots of affection!

But a common question may come to mind on this day: HOW did Valentine’s Day become a thing and WHY is it a day for celebrating love and loved ones?

Way back in 3rd century Rome, there was a priest named Valentine of Terni. He lived in the time of Emperor Claudius II. This emperor outlawed marriage in Rome because he thought romance would distract his soldiers from their devotion to national service. Valentine, a brave believer, would secretly officiate weddings against the Roman Emperor’s wishes, which eventually would lead to his imprisonment.  While imprisoned, some say he fell in love with a young girl.  He would often write her love letters signed “From Your Valentine,” which is one theory of how the tradition of sending Valentines came to be. Others say that Christian followers of his threw little gifts over the prison walls for him, giving origin to the exchange of small presents on this day.

Valentine was executed on February 14th, c. 270 CE, and was canonized as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church for giving his life for the sacrament of marriage. We celebrate his feast day on February 14th as a result. 

St. Valentine

Over time, Valentine’s Day became a commercialized holiday, straying far from its origins of being a saint’s Feast Day.  A large number of modern traditions owe themselves to Shakespeare’s contributions.  Throughout his romanticized writings, Shakespeare popularized the concept of sending Valentine’s Day cards and gifts to loved ones.  While Valentine’s traditions have changed greatly over time, the concept of showing our love to those we care about has stood strong.  

So how can we as an army celebrate this tradition? Well, last week Col. Microwaveable Hamster announced that soldiers and Officers can give out VIRTUAL VALENTINES to one another!

Upon clicking the link, you would be led to a Google Form where you could anonymously send a nice message to anyone in the server!!!!!!  

You will be asked for the name of the person you would like to send your message to, the actual message itself (must be appropriate of course), whether you wish to remain anonymous or not, and if you have any special requests.  If you choose to not include your name, your message will be sent anonymously by the RFCP Secret Cupids!  

The RFCP Secret Cupids will use their special Valentine’s powers to make your message into a memorable gift that the recipient will treasure forever!  They will be magically sent to the recipient on February 14th!  I wasn’t supposed to reveal the finished product until Valentine’s Day, but I managed to steal a sample…shhh…

This is a wonderful way of celebrating this fine tradition, so I encourage all members of RFCP to write a Virtual Valentine to someone in the army to brighten their day! You all have until today to fill one out.

Happy St. Valentine’s Day.

With love,


What do YOU think about the Virtual Valentines?  Are YOU looking forward to sending one to a special someone?  Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

Arne’s Guide to Colombia: Food and Money

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA—RFCP is proud to celebrate the diversity of its soldiers. This is an educational and cultural piece about Major Arne’s home country! Prepare to be swept away to a tropical paradise!

This blog is part of our RFCP Marines outreach! The Marines are our Spanish-speaking division. If you consider yourself primarily Spanish-speaking or just want to learn more, please reach out to Vizconde Don!

Ahhhhh, Colombia. A country of nature, cultures, variety, kindness, resourcefulness, landscapes, biodiversity, happiness, cheap taxis, coffee, historical sites, rice, corn, artisanal products, and wild Arnes roaming around.

While things aren’t all happy down here, it’s an attractive place. There’s a little something for everyone here. From beaches to mountains, deserts to metropolises, historic sites to massive plantations, shopping malls to island getaways, forests and tropical weather 12 months a year, there is much to love about Colombia! To quote Morshu, “You want it, it’s yours, my friend.”

But if you want to truly enjoy your time, you will need some advice. So as a qualified Colombian native, I’m here to explain to you how to survive in my beautiful country. The first issue we will tackle regards money and food.  The most important thing to keep in mind regarding money is the conversion value.  When you trade an American dollar, you receive around 3.500 Colombian pesos. 

That might make you think either our economy is in shambles or your dollars are worth quite a lot. Both are correct, but the huge number has to do with the fact that we’re one of the few countries that used this system in which almost everything has like three extra zeros attached to it. Here in Colombia, a million pesos is standard one month salary for some professions, while a million dollars in the U.S. would be lifechanging.

There are coins that we don’t have fun nicknames for as well like the 50 pesos coin, the 100 pesos coin, the 200 pesos coin, the 500 pesos coin, and the 1000 pesos coin, which is what I call the fat oreo (since it looks like two coins glued together). 1000 pesos is pretty much a pretty standard money amount, and it is also considered the first bill. For bills we have the 1.000, 2.000, 5.000, 10.000, 20.000, and 50,000 bills as well as the recently introduced elusive 100.000 bill.

Most food in restaurant chains such as McDonald’s (of course we have those here!) will retail between 20.000 and 10.000 pesos, but it can go up to 30.000 in some more high-end places. Speaking of which, what other U.S. fast food chains do we have in Colombia? Domino’s, Pizza Hut, Papa John’s, Little Caesar’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, Panda Express, and Subway are some of the American comforts that you can find in Colombia as well. We still are missing out on many chains like Popeye’s, Jimmy John’s, Sonic Drive In, Arby’s, Chick-Fil-A, and Carl’s Jr, but we make up for it with our own fast food chains! 

There’s La Lucerna, (lah-loo-ser-nah), a dessert place with some gourmet food; Frisby, the biggest fried chicken chain in the country; and burger chains such as Presto, Sayonara, and Del Rodeo. El Corral is a higher-end burger chain; Crepes and Waffles is fine dining for the broke; Kei-Zaki is sushi and japanese food; Mis Carnes has traditional Colombian foods as well as some wacky menu items; and QBano sells sub sandwiches.

There’s many I didn’t cover, but we have several rich options in traditional food as well. We have the classic empanada, a cheap dough-based dish that’s stuffed with meat, chicken, or cheese, and then deep fried. Some regions may pair them with a juice made out of sugarcane called guarapo. There’s also the bandeja paisa, which is beans served with avocado, the chorizo, which is like a fat sausage, egg, rice, and chicharrones which is a type of fried pork. 

Some other options are ajiaco and sancocho, two rich creamy vegetable-based soups.  The ajiaco has a more intense flavour based on an ingredient named guasca, while the sancocho is more based on the yucca. We also have some fun fruits like the passion fruit and chalupa, two yellow fruits that are really sour and grow in tropical environments. There’s also the guanabana and the guayaba, which are both sweet but the guayaba is much more sour and acidy overall.

Guayabas can be condensed into these red rectangular candies which I actually like quite a bit. Then there’s pitaya, which looks kinda like a yellow dragon fruit. Most of these are kinda cheap, except pitaya, which can get quite expensive. Also don’t worry about when each fruit reaches its peak season, because ALL seasons are optimal fruit seasons in Colombia!

Due to a phenomenon called the equatorial line, which is a strip across the middle of the world encompassing most of South America, down here there’s no such thing as the regular season calendar. No snow, no sun until 10:00 p.m., no leaves falling everywhere, just an eternal season comparable to spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

What Line? | the imaginaryLine

So, next summer, think about booking a trip down to Colombia, but only if you’re vaccinated or did a COVID test. Please. Safety first, folks!

What it Takes to Run an RFCP Channel

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–So you think you have what it takes to run your own RFCP channel?  Read on to find out!

Picture this: one day, #general-chat is slow and you’re bored, wishing for something to do. While searching the server, you head on over to the RFCP Store, where you gawk at all the things you want to buy but can’t afford yet. The opportunities seem endless!  Along with real RFCP merchandise like pillows, snow globes, magnets, apparel, and pens, there are virtual prizes such as Discord Nitro, personalized roles, memes, copypastas, Amazon gift cards, even a date with an Officer!  Isn’t capitalism amazing?

But one product may catch your attention more than any other. 

Arguably one of the most coveted RFCP prizes is one’s very own custom RFCP Channel.  Many soldiers dream of having their very own channel to showcase their passions.  We’ve already seen a few examples of the lucky soldiers who opened up their channels: from astronomy to fun facts to even cooking. There are countless possibilities!

For the low, low, down payment of $2,000 Bumble Bucks, this offer could be yours! (Hey, I said it was attention-grabbing!). Now, as any mother would tell her six-year-old kid who found a dog on the street on the way home, taking care of something is a big responsibility. But nevertheless, the possibility of having a channel for your own shenanigans is quite an interesting one, and so many soldiers do take on the lease.

So if you had the funds and decided you wanted to purchase your own channel, what would be expected of you next? After forking out the large sum of your down payment to a banker, you would have the honor of naming your channel (within reason…) and being added to a neat little group chat with all the other channel owners. However, your responsibility would not end there.  

You may see that some users who had purchased their own channels, most notably Col. Shy Guy’s #astronomy and Vizconde Don’s #fun-facts, had been closed.  This is because of a rent system, in which you have to pay a sum of $150 Bumble Bucks every two weeks, totaling $300 Bumble Bucks monthly.  Each payment you fail to pay will stack up and become debt. Once you’ve accumulated enough debt, your channel can and will be shut down indefinitely until you pay said debt.

Business Debt - Can it Really be a Good Thing? | Anglo ...

If you ever find yourself in debt, don’t despair!  Firstly, it is unconstitutional in the RFCP for ANY channel to be permanently deleted–all are archived and visible only to the Commander and Prior Bumble (when he is not serving as Commander). So your channel is safe and waiting for you when you’re ready to take it back! Secondly, it is very possible to get yourself out of debt by making some Bumble Bucks by patrolling or recruiting! Fortunately, Shy Guy was able to pay off his debt and now has his channel back, but Don is sadly still stuck in I-own-a-channel-but-I-can’t-use-it purgatory.

My own channel, #hunger-games-simulator, which I own alongside Maj. Djchoruskid,  was archived back in January due to user disinterest and lack of funding.  Recently, it was reopened and freed of its debt, once the whopping $600 Bumble Bucks were paid off. There’s also Col. Microwaveable Hamster’s #cookie-cooking channel to share food and recipes, which hasn’t been archived or fallen in debt, thanks to a stable funding base (even if I use that channel more than Sgt. Cookie herself).

So it may all look like doom, gloom, debt, and bankruptcy, but I’m here to offer a couple of solutions so you too can earn enough money to pay the channel rent after you buy your own channel:

  • Doing 3 patrols each day for five days will net you the money in a third of the time you have available to pay off the channel.
  • Releasing a single blog post will earn you $200 Bumble Bucks, with $50 to spare after paying off one rent payment.
  • Recruit 6 soldiers. It may be tedious, but you’re helping the army at the same time you make $25 Bumble Bucks per soldier recruited.
  • Keep an eye out for contests, tournaments, or events with rewards. Most pay you for participating!
  • Officer rewards/gifts. Officers can give you some Bumble Bucks for many reasons, like hosting Twilight themed Hunger Games. Right, Don?
  • Mix and match any of the above!

Always make sure to tell a banker when you’ve completed any of those tasks, so they can give you the money you earned. Another point to note is that soldiers in debt are not restricted to the 3 patrols per day rule, meaning they can grind nonstop as well. By recruiting 10 soldiers in a day, you will be rewarded with an EXTRA $500 Bumble Bucks as a bonus to the $25/each! (Try bringing that stash in, I challenge you!).

Running a channel is a fun responsibility–that is, when you aren’t stuck in a pit of financial despair and unpaid rent. But with all of these solutions, you should be in the clear!

Would YOU want to run an RFCP channel?  Think YOU could keep up with the responsibility?  Leave us a comment below to let us know your thoughts!

Top 5 Prior Bumble Quotes

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–What are the top five Prior Bumble quotes of all time? Read on to found out, and scroll to the bottom for exclusive quote images you can use in the server, or anywhere!

The Recon Federation’s Founder and Commander, Prior Bumble, is known for his eloquence with words, and in using them to conduct any situation he is presented with. After asking members of the RFCP, I have compiled a list of the top 5 quotes from our cherished Commander.

#5 IT







Coming in on the number 5 slot on the countdown, we have: “IT IS TIME FOR THE BATTLE SPEECH!!”

Top 10 Moments From the 'Lord of the Rings' Trilogy - The ...

This quote was used by Prior Bumble to get soldiers excited for big battles, and explosive emoji reactions, salutes from officers, and a hush of anticipatory silence always followed. Cue the hype and powerful wordsmithing. RFCP still holds this quote near and dear, and uses it as a precedent for all major battle speeches, making it one of the most unforgettable of all time.

#4 “You don’t need to be hurting as much as you are, because you got a whole family here.”

Our number 4 position was suggested by Uncle Satchmo, pulled from a private letter Prior Bumble wrote to him.

While this quote may be pretty self-explanatory, it has earned its rank on our Top 5 list, because it is one of the many perfect examples we have of Prior Bumble’s compassion towards his soldiers. At the Recon Federation, everyone is family; and while it is easy to feel sad sometimes, this quote is a perfect way of saying you are never as alone as you may feel.

#3 “The best way to be a leader is to be good to my soldiers.”

Coming in at our midway point is one of Prior Bumble’s earliest quotes. He is recording as first saying it in-game at the Ski Village before RFCP was even declared an army in CPATG!

This quote best exemplifies how Prior Bumble viewed leadership and what it entails. Prior Bumble cares for his soldiers and considered that “good shepherd” mentality as his greatest mandate for command.

Perhaps this affinity for stewardship started even before we met him. Before Prior Bumble was our Commander at RFCP, he served as Commissar, second-in-command, of the People’s Republic Army with ColinZfresh. ColinZfresh was not only Prior Bumble’s friend and leader at the time; he was Prior’s mentor. Through ColinZFresh’s guidance, Prior learned that being a good leader doesn’t always translate directly into what you do on the battlefield, but to how well you can minister to the needs of your soldiers off the battlefield. This led to other Prior Bumble policies, most notably the Constitutional, “Put the person before the penguin.”

#2 “War the fuck on.”


While the battle for our number 1 slot was very close, the decided runner-up quote is: “War the fuck on.”

Dating back to World War 8, our controversial second place winner shines a spotlight on the war-lust of Prior Bumble. He described himself as a “war dog,” and as former CPAH CEO Pookie437 once said,

Prior taught everyone in RFCP to never back down from a fight. Even while facing several of the biggest armies, Prior Bumble, and the RFCP, knows that the most important thing is standing tall in the face of our enemies and holding the sacred ground (erat ipso sacra!).

#1 “Woof.”

Nobody should be surprised by this.

Coming in as the Number 1 Prior Bumble quote of All Time is: “Woof.”

At the Recon Federation of Club Penguin, Prior Bumble is revered for his authority and leadership. He is the alpha wolf, and he makes sure everyone knows it.

The quote was so true-to-form for how we all see Prior as being our alpha, that it has stuck around and officially earned its position as top dog on our Top 5 Prior Bumble Quotes.

!!! Honorable Mention !!!

But wait! There’s more!

Seeing as Commander CoolJ was the only one to bring this quote up, and it was too funny to leave off our list, our honorable mention goes to: “What is ‘dior dior’? Is that lingo from the hood?”

True to his renowned “boomer” nature, Prior asked the question one day many months ago while then-Commissar Coolj was singing along to “Dior” by Pop Smoke in one of the voice chats. While Commander Coolj is young and seems to be (for the most part) interested in rap music, Commander Prior Bumble is more laid back and prefers older genres. When the two worlds collided in a voice chat one night, it was nothing but pure comedy as the older and younger generations of RFCP Commanders tried to understand each other’s taste in music.

Si Todos los Soldados de la RFCP Fueran Clubes de FĂştbol

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–ÂżQuĂ© equipos de fĂştbol encarnan nuestros oficiales de RFCP? ¡Sigue leyendo!

RFCP is proud to welcome speakers of all languages into our family. This post is entirely in Spanish to cater to our Spanish division. A translation of the text into English can be found here (part 1) and here (part 2).

Mientras todo el mundo habla del Super Bowl, aquí en los Marines casi nadie se preocupa por lo que sucede en el fútbol, ​​así que hablemos un poco sobre el fútbol normal, ya que me convertiré en el primer (y único) reportero hispano en el blog.Se vienen los octavos de final de la Champions League, así que pensé que sería interesante comparar a nuestros líderes y miembros con equipos de fútbol, y por qué se parecen a ese club en mi opinión. Sin necesidad de explicar más, acá vamos.

Comandante Prior Bumble: Manchester United

Un club con una historia larga y bastante amplia aplica para nuestro veterano fundador en toda la ley. El Manchester United solía dominar la liga inglesa, pero en memoria reciente se ha hecho a un lado. Aun así esta haciendo una campaña formidable esta temporada, lo que perfectamente se compara a la vida después del retiro de Prior Bumble.

Prior Bumble

Comandante Coolj: Bayern MĂşnich

Nuestro lĂ­der actual, Coolj, se compara al tirano lĂ­der de la liga alemana. Con un estilo agresivo, el Bayern ha tomado el mundo del fĂştbol por sorpresa con un juego basado en la presiĂłn constante, respaldado por una estrategia acertada en el mercado de fichajes. Coolj se asemeja con su actitud agresiva, calculada, y muy intensa.

Comisario Hamster: Paris Saint Germain

Hamster, nuestra querida banquera se compara a un club cuyo modelo de negocio actual ha sido construido a base de el manejo de sumas altĂ­simas de plata, rompiendo varios records en gastos, lo que se puede comparar a Hamster y cosas como su involucramiento en la transferencia masiva que desencadenĂł el Feddiegate 3.0.


General Sillabye: Ajax

La líder del departamento de reclutamiento se asemeja a un club famoso por su actitud amistosa con jóvenes talentos, fichando barato y vendiendo caro. El trabajo de Sillabye es parecido, reclutando nuevos soldados para la RFCP que algún día quizás serán leyendas. O quizás ellos abandonen el server en menos de una semana eso también es una opción.

General Anilia: Atalanta

Un club construido en fichar barato y vender caro, como el Ajax, queda bien para la segunda líder de reclutamiento. El juego del Atalanta, basado en juego rápido y letal, ha tomado por sorpresa a la liga italiana, y el ascenso rápido de Anilia al triunfo, como el del conjunto de Bérgamo (ya se lo que piensas, asi se llama la ciudad de la que vienen).


Mariscal de Campo (ret.) Joshafter: Leicester City

En sus propias palabras, él es “ese club que hace unos años ganó la liga inglesa de alguna forma”. Según él, se ve como la persona en la que nadie cree, pero que luego acabará ganando. Aun así, Josh es fan del Bayern Munich, lo que queda bien con nuestra analogía.

Leicester City F.C. - Wikipedia

Mayor Arne: Red Bull Leipzig

El joven equipo alemán fundado en el 2009 ha subido de categoría hasta llegar a la cima en solo 11 años de existencia, ya habiendo llegado a semifinales de la Champions League en su corta existencia. Yo por mi parte he tenido un ascenso inexistente, debido a que me dieron Mayor inmediatamente, pero en mi army vieja llegué a tercero en comando como en dos meses, a los 11 años. ¿Qué coincidencia no?

Coronel Shy Guy: Borussia Dortmund

El lĂ­der de la divisiĂłn para menores de edad se puede comparar a un club conocido y renombrado por su notable academia de fĂştbol para jĂłvenes, que produce muchos talentos emocionantes. Shy Guy ha sido muy entusiasta con la divisiĂłn, llamada Silver Thirty, y es sin duda un soldado querido, como el equipo amarillo y negro aleman.

Vizconde Don: Juventus

La Juventus aprovechó el caos de la liga italiana a inicios de la década pasada, y mediante una buena estrategia financiera, a diferencia del resto, tomó el liderazgo de dicha liga, y lo ha mantenido por 9 años. Don, o El Huachimingo, asumió el liderazgo de la Infantería de Marina siguiendo a los líderes españoles de la RFCP Kerx y Jeremito, y permaneció en el cargo durante mucho tiempo.

Bueno. Esos fueron algunos ejemplos. ¿Estás de acuerdo? Déjalo en el chat principal jeje. ¡Gracias por leer el primer blog en español de la RFCP! Ten un buen día. ¡Chaoooo!

Astrology of June 5, 2019

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–What was the horoscope on RFCP’s founding date? What supernatural wonders were at work?

Astrology is the study of heavenly objects with the belief that their positions can influence human and natural affairs. Since June 5, 2019 was a HUGE day for RFCP, the blog decided to take a look at what was going on in the stars the night Prior Bumble chose to create the Recon Federation.


Above is a chart of the night sky on the evening of June 5, 2019, around 10:00 p.m. EST (estimated time of declaration of RFCP). The chart is according to the location of Prior Bumble. Highlighted in yellow, one can see the date. This particular image shows what was rising on the Eastern horizon.

The Moon and Retrograde motions were:

Not since discussing nighttime dreams associated with RFCP has the blog written about such a mystical topic. But the world is full of wonder and mystery, and we believe the founding of RFCP was a sacred event in the universe. Is there something that speaks to you deeply, even spiritually, about this day?

There is for us.

Ask the Officer: Col. MicroHamster

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–As RFCP starts off a new year of fun and excitement, RFCP Col. MicroHamster kicks off a brand new “Ask the Officer” blog series!

When I initially asked late last year who our soldiers wanted interviewed first for the new blog series, I assumed they would pick one of our higher-ranking officers. However, as you can see here, the soldiers of the Recon Federation of Club Penguin have decided to use me (Col. MicroHamster) as the guinea pig for our newest segment.

I requested that everyone DM me the burning questions they wanted answered for the blog, and you all delivered. Without further ado, let’s see what you all came up with!

Q: Are you interested in robotics and code? – F.M. JustinTFC
A: I actually took a computer coding class in school. It wasn’t anything major, just the basics of using html code, but I did find it very fun. While I have never actually gotten into robotics, I’ve always found it interesting to see how things work, especially in the technological sense.

Q: Who do you want to see as one of the next officers of RFCP? – DJChorusKid
A: Honestly, I’m not really sure. There are several people that stick out to me that I think would be amazing as an officer, so I don’t think I could pick just one person. Hopefully one of our Officer’s in Training will join us soon though!

Pssst! Maj. DJ would make a great Officer!

Q: What’s the juiciest thing in the Officers’ chat that we soldiers don’t know? – DJChorusKid
A: Again, there’s a few things that stick out to me with this question, so I’ll just go through the top 3:
1. Col. Shy Guy has discovered how to make perfect toasted ham and cheese sandwich! I think he may actually be Gordon Ramsay in disguise.

2. December has passed and we still don’t know when Gen. Anilia’s birthday is. The answer to this question has evaded us all for months, and we are, sadly, no closer to getting an answer.

3. Speaking of Gen. Anilia, it may have gone unnoticed, but she organized all of the paid roles in the server! Make sure you give her a big thank you!

Q: What’s your favorite microwaveable food? – Arne
A: Popcorn is good, but for actual food, I have to admit that I love these

Image result for banquet buffalo mac and cheese
It’s not the healthiest, but it’s a good comfort food!

Q: How does it feel to be an Officer for the RFCP? – DabOn
A: It’s amazing! It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s very well worth it when something we’ve all worked at comes together. It may not seem like it, but there’s a lot of work that goes into planning events and making sure they happen.

Q: What was your favorite RFCP event or point in history? – Commissar Hamster
A: Storytimes are always a lot of fun, but I think watching Dragon Tales in the voicechat (Krispy TV) was one of my favorite things we’ve done. Everyone got so involved in it and it was fun just chilling with everyone.

Q: What was your proudest moment in RFCP? – Commissar Hamster
A: Hands down, getting to see JustinTFC become an Officer! He’s been like a little brother to me right from the start, and I was ecstatic to be his mentor and help him on his journey to becoming an Officer.

Q: If you were Commander for the day, what would you do? – Commissar Hamster
A: Start a fire in every channel. I’m kidding mostly. I’m not even sure; I’d definitely write a blog about whatever happened, though.

Hopefully that answered all of your questions!

What do YOU think of the new “Ask the Officer” blog series? Who would YOU like to see next month on the second segment in this series? Leave us a comment below and let us know your thoughts!
