Charge of the Purple Brigade (ARR Fundraiser Update)
Half a man, half a man,
Half a man high,
All in the box of Death
marched the ARR funded
"Forward, the purple Brigade!
"Charge for the ball!" he said:
Into the box of Death
crashed the ARR funded.

"Forward, the Purple Brigade!"
Was there a 'fling dismay'd?
Not tho' the goblin knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the box of Death
stomped the ARR funded.

Nurgle to right of them,
Dwarfs to left of them,
Chaos in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with boot and swell,
Boldly they fought and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Brave the ARR funded.

Flash'd all their chests bare,
Flash'd as they turn'd in air,
Rocking the blockers there,
Charging monsters, while
All the world wonder'd:
Plunged in the wizard-smoke
Right thro' the line they broke;
Woodelf and human
Reel'd from the boot stroke
Shatter'd and sunder'd.
Then they marched back, but not
Not all the ARR funded.

Cdorks to right of them,
High Elves to left of them,
Amazons behind them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with boot and swell,
While tree and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro' the jaws of Death
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of the ARR funded.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honour the charge they made,
Honour the Purple Brigade,
Add to the ARR funded.



So folks, little time has passed since my previous blog asking for donations/pledges to see if we could stir up PurpleChest enough to bother playing something other than Dwarfs. And at the same time raise some money for FUMBBL.

We got quite some interest indeed, and after a quite carefully crafted introduction and some initial replies we were rewarded with the prospect of a PurpleChest halfling sprint.

But it didn't end there! With more donations we were able to secure a good chunk of PC's playing time into stunty races... PurpleChest hasn't actually backed down from this whatsoever, in fact, I'd guess he's relishing this. Because he's bashed out roughly 1/3rd of the games for his Goblins and Halflings already.

Since that's actually quite a milestone, I'm going to quickly post a summary of where he is, and where we stand with regards to how much is pledged. With any luck, the evidence PC is completely committed to this while spur some more people to pledge - endorsing his effort, or maybe you'd like to pledge based on a condition, or... you can do what Manzoo has done on the last blog and place a bounty on his players

As of right now:

PC's Goblins
Are 8/0/1 and sit on top of the ARR Goblin sprint by a whole 13pts. They sit a mere 5pts off the leaders of the overall stunty sprint and have played 6 games less. At this point in time, PurpleChest is guaranteed to have at least a 50% record over the sprint, and is currently a blackbox goblin legend. That is to say nothing of him currently being on course to trouble even the mighty Cdassak's (our noble impARRator, and the revered "breaker of fumbbl") goblin records!
I may actually have to change the "unbelievARR" badge based on this :o

PC's Flings
Aren't quite so hot. I sure a great many of you are absolutely devastated to know that PurpleChest has merely managed a 1/1/3 record so far with the 'flings. He has already retired a tree due to a niggle, and this is with only 1 dwarf team faced in his first five games. In fact, his struggles are such that his 30% win rate so far is less than half his lowest win rate for his other races. Having actually watched a few of these games, he's been quite horribly unlucky at times, and quite possibly completely robbed during others. Stop sobbing at the back!


I'd also encourage everyone to go read the man himself's thoughts on his games, progress and in general, playing stunty races as he goes.


Pledges so far
Jdmickleburgh ($20)
Jellybelly ($15)
cdassak ($20)

BlackOrc ($10)

Lorebass ($8-$10)
Thoralf ($11)


Conditional Pledges
Jdmickleburgh $10 for every dorf team the flings face (currently 1)
Manzoo has placed a $10 bounty on PC's fanatic!


So we're currently just shy of $300 pledged so far! Step up, step in, and join in the fun. Even if the only reason you're doing so is to make your first dwarf team in the box :)

But whatever you pledge, you can do so with confidence you're going to get what you're in for - the numbers don't lie gents, PC is doing this.


Join us!

(additional pledges can be posted here, or on the main blog, or even on the the blog of the man of the hour himself, I'll try to catch them all, but if I miss you, pm me!)
