Welcome to the RPF Beginner’s Guide page! We’re glad to see you joining (and/or maybe are just interested in) the greatest clan (we frequently call ourselves an army) that’s been here for more than 11 years! We’re known to be one of the most powerful armies, with many unique and different minds, having and have had some of the most innovative soldiers in the old community. Although it may seem unreasonable in a sense, the RPF has positively influenced many people who have joined (just ask any old veteran what they think).
If you’ve recently joined the RPF, you might have a lot of questions in mind. Here in the Beginner’s Guide page, we’ll try to cover most, if not all of the things we do in the Rebel Penguin Federation and simply, how we operate.
II: Your Responsibilities
When you’re a soldier, you will have many responsibilities (don’t worry, it doesn’t sound that serious; it’s just a few things). The most notable of these responsibilities are:
1. Be on chat! We are an army, and with that being said, we are very social. Communication is important for our battles and other events, which is why we Discord; it’s fun and easy to use. You can also have an opportunity of meeting many people and making new friends there!
2. Come to battles and get promoted! An army isn’t an army without having sort of battle, whether it be training or clashing with other groups. However, these battles are pretty much based on what Club Penguin Online or any other CPPS gives us: it’s about the size of the army, the tactics that we do, and how often we do them. It is important that you come to events whenever possible so that you may be rewarded in the end with a promotion. They are rank-ups that are given to troops who have proven themselves to be active and loyal. Remember, the more active you are, the better chances you have of receiving one. Promotions are given out at any time, anywhere!
That’s not all! If you’re nice to others, attend the battles (as noted above), and follow all rules, you’ll be even more likely to be promoted, getting you even closer to the top of the ranks! Being closer to the top of the ranks is something that many of the troops desire.
3. Learn the art of battling! Battling is all about competition, and if you want to win, you’ve got to be the best at it! In battles, we fight together against other groups or perhaps training by ourselves using the tactics and tips shown below. It’s best if you have this part as a reference so you know what to do. That being said, the tactics we do should be done fast enough so people find that we are an unstoppable group that nobody should mess with. To learn more, go to the “Battle Guide” section.
Tip: If you’re at the end of a formation and you see a gap between two penguins, you may want to move to that place so tactics are more likely to look awesome.
4. Follow all rules! The rules are enforced so the chat can be a safe environment for all users to use! We want you to follow those rules and you may be rewarded with something like promotions if you keep following the rules! With that, soldiers of the Rebel Penguin Federation may take you as an example of a good role model set for them!
5. Use the website often! When you use the website, you can find a lot of information (like you’re viewing right now) such as upcoming events, CPR news, if mascots are currently online, contests, and many other things. The RPF website can keep you up-to-date on things.
III: Battle Guide
On the battlefield, there are many tactics and battle strategies (through this limited game) to make things more entertaining and to sorta be online with a militaristic approach. There are many types of tactics—the most notable being:
These tactics are performed as a defense (standing still in formation) or attacking by a type of bomb (moving around the room using the ordered emote repeatedly). Rewritten’s parties might have its own exclusive emote tactic that we may use during an event.
Emote Hotkey Reference
Done in an identical manner to emote tactics, the only exception of these tactics is that it is typed up on the chat bar. There are many different word tactics we can do based on how creative the situation may be, but we mostly use our popular catchphrases such as “Fight the Good Fight”, “When Darkness Falls”, “Never Back Down”, “Far From Over”, etc.
We’d also have many types of battles such as tournaments (like the RPF Olympics), a battle of the branches (Navy vs. Air Force), training events, U-Leads, operations, battles with other armies, recons, and much, much more. It’s rather difficult to get to all types of events because there are quite a lot considering how creative each event can get. Most of these events may be held to test the ability to lead, and the army’s precision in tactics and such things like so.
Tip: You should spread out when in a formation because it makes the entire army look larger. If there is no more room for that said formation, then you can bunch (after all, we’re a huge group, so it’s likely).
IV: Using the Website
The Rebel Penguin Federation website is a sort of tool many soldiers use to find information about their next upcoming event, what rank they currently are, find more information about RPF and maybe some other armies, etc. We use this website to keep organized archives.
For instance, one of the many reasons why we use this website is so we can easily keep track of all the recent things that happens in RPF.
As mentioned earlier, it is a sort of tool you can use to keep you up-to-date. We’ll have information about
- our history,
- the Beginner’s Guide page mainly directed towards newly-enlisted soldiers,
- current locations of mascots,
- CPO news such as pin locations and the parties,
- what your current place is in the ranks,
- contests (e.g. Igloo Contest, Catchphrase Contest),
- competitions (RPF Olympics, Navy vs. Air Force) & events/event results,
- troop interviews,
- motivational posts and
- much, much more.
You may even expect to find a lot of other entertaining posts that many fun-loving authors and up have published for you to enjoy! It’s worth it to look at some historical posts, too. It’s amazing to also find suggestions from soldiers on how to better improve the website and make it fun for all readers.
After all, who wouldn’t love an aesthetic website?
V: Using Discord
Before using Discord, the RPF used a xat chat but it proved to be rather glitchy, so we switched to Discord because of the additional features it had. It was also easy for soldiers to use, which made it much easier to act as a group. If you’re wanting to get into the RPF chat, a Discord server, follow these steps:
Click on the “Discord” page on the RPF website.
Type in a username (we recommend your CPO username) and click on “Continue”. If you’ve used Discord before (likely being in other servers and having an account), you might just receive an invitation and need to click “Accept Invite”.
You might need to prove you’re not a robot.
You might get a tutorial on Discord. If you want to, just click “Next” or “Skip Setup” if you think you can operate Discord already.
If you do click on “Next”, you will be asked to register an account. You can choose your own avatar, add in your email address (doesn’t have to be real—but if you lose your password, you’ll need it to get your account back), and put in a password for your account.
And then, when you click on “Register Your Account”, you’ll finally get to our Discord server!
You’ll get a welcome message from a bot.
You can say “.iam Navy” if you’re a part of the Navy and/or “.iam US Division” if you’re in the US. You might be Visitor if you’re not joining the RPF. The first you want to do, though, is say “.iamn New” to get access to more channels.
And, there you have it! You might be a part of more Discord servers if that’s what you decide, along with learning more about how Discord works when you see other people using it. You can go to your settings and set how you want things to be—ex: the volume of your mic if you want to go on a voice channel.
Have fun with that!
The information mentioned here is merely just scratching the surface—you’ll find out more things along the way like why we’re still existing, what more you can do, and such things like so, considering this page is just for beginners. Everyone here has their own number of things they know about this along with their opinions and feelings. There are many pull factors on why you should join and what sorts of benefits there are to even be in such a group. More things will arrive on the horizon as we’re continuously developing, hopefully becoming even better.
Fight the good fight!
