This is a unique blog post, delving into some never-seen-before operations that the People’s Imperial Confederation has conducted within this army’s lifetime. I’ve felt like writing a post like this for a while but I’ve never had the motivation to do so. In this article we will explore a couple of “Special Operations” that PIC members (notably the High Command) have conducted, bringing forgotten stories to light in the process. I am unsure as to whether another addition of “Special Operations [Declassified]” will be released in the future, if so, this will be the first. Let’s dive into these two operations, each of which vary in significance.
Operation #1: RFCP’s Brutusian War
On the 19th of February 2020, the Recon Federation of Club Penguin (RFCP) declared war on the Club Penguin Romans, at the time a medium-sized army powerhouse of the Club Penguin Rewritten army community. RFCP was prompted into aggression by a raid of a training event, in which multiple accounts logged on to troll RFCP members. Prior Bumble (and RFCP’s ZCA intelligence group) believed to be conducted by none other than former RFCP General (3ic) Cabin, enlisted as a third in command of the Romans. Their reason for believing so was due to CSY giving Cabin’s name as the likely culprit.
Despite poor Cabin declaring his innocence, RFCP Commander Prior Bumble and his ZCA refused to believe him. This would result in the ignition of the Brutusian War.
The raid would lead to an intense conflict between the Romans and RFCP, with vitriolic hatred being present on both sides. Little did either of them know, however, that Cabin was telling the truth.
In a Discord group chat, a group of friends known as the Half Face Gang (HFG) were on a voice chat as they commonly would be. The core of HFG would go on to become some of the most prominent members of PIC, though PIC was not active at the time in question. These people – myself (Jemma), Phoebe, Emma and Dawnables – decided it would be fun to do a bit of trolling at an unsuspecting RFCP training event. This raid was conducted on a voice chat, so there are few records of the matter in question, though below are two screenshots of a discussion about the raids in the HFG group chat:
(Note: the deactivated account is the old account of our current Marszałek, Phoebe)
Since our friend Dawnables was an ACP moderator at the time, she was questioned about the raid, but ultimately she cleared our names to ensure that her place in ACP would not be compromised.
With the raid concluded, we had never intended to start an entire war, but instead poke some fun and annoy the Recon Federation. Though Cabin was a casualty of our actions, we found humor in the idea that we had achieved something far greater than any trolling could give us. We fooled RFCP into barking up the wrong tree.
Operation #2: Skribbl.io Retaliation
Though this tale isn’t nearly as exciting as the previous, it is one of continued trolling and a strike back against the RFCP raids of April-May 2020. During this period, the Recon Federation would raid and harass the People’s Imperial Confederation at events. RFCP would also plant ‘alt’ accounts on our Discord in order to gain our trust and provide intelligence to RFCP as to when we would hold events for them to raid (one of which was Esme, the alt account of CoffeeBean, who is now our Kommandant). On one fateful day in May, RFCP would raid a PIC Skribbl.io game in an attempt to ruin our chances of having fun. Enough was enough, and after weeks of being raided, the PIC High Command struck back.
The raid was grand, with RFCP Commissar (2ic) Coolj believing our fake alibies of being new recruits.
Not soon after, the defacing of the game began.
The raid would later be blamed on Anonting (why they thought ANONTING of all people would raid a Skribbl, I don’t know), completely oblivious to the prospect that the Confederation might do a bit of retaliation themselves. PIC got away with it easily. Though this would be the only raid of an RFCP event during the Great Resistance, we sure got a kick out of it.
Thank you for reading this post! If you enjoyed or would like another addition to this series, be sure to let me know in the PIC Discord! Until next time.
