Folk ARPS patches, v2!

Post by Aqarius » Sun Nov 22, 2015 2:48 am

Comrade Commissar, what are those strange crates that have been showing up all over the base?
The leaky ones, the glowing ones, or the ones with the biohazard stickers?

Uh...well, let's start with those last ones.
Ah, you mean the ones for the patches? Well, we were going to make an official announcement a bit later, but since you're asking: The Party R&D committee is preparing for the launch of the all new and improved Folk ARPS Morale Patch! The production is going great, with like 20% less heavy metal poisoning, and we expect the full roll out to begin shortly. The science bureau has been hard at work to outdo it's last year's patch-related achievements, and I dare say they did a hell of a job at it may they rest in peace!

Improved morale patch? Does it really improve morale?
I assure you, comrade, morale improvement is definitely one of the possible sideeffects! Not only that, but the size has been practically doubled, and the head of the science department assures me that the new shield shape will significantly boost the provided protection.

Protection? Are the patches bulletproof?
Uh...sure, why not. Anyway, they also added velcro backing, to make it even easier to attach to your jacket and/or backpack!

That's fantastic! How do I get one?
You will be fully informed of the distribution process as soon as the engineering department irons out a few kinks. They assure me they can get them to below 300 rads by Wednesday, so keep your ears peeled! You might just want to sign up for one in advance!

I definitely will! I've seen some comrades wearing the last year's patch, and they were all glowing with pride! I will be sure to get one of my own this time!
Uh, yes, absolutely, pride. Glowing with pride.


OK, jokes aside, just like last year, we are ordering a batch of custom made patches, made after a design lovingly crafted by comrade Tigershark. Unlike the old design, the patches are larger, at 8cm width and 9.5cm height, probably about the size of the Clear Sky patch below:

The patches will be available to anyone interested, at 7GBP/10USD/10EUR, international postage included. All money earned (if, by some freak accident, there is any) will go towards next year's upkeep of our K19-III Widowmaker game server. So you get to have a patch, and contribute to paying Tiger's lawyer fees for FA's continuing existence.

The official order placement website IS NOW UP. Be sure to include your full name and shipping address, either in your paypal profile, or the remark (or both).

Do your share, and look cool doing it!

Post updated with mockup images of the final patch design.

Send two to my dacha, please, and take the money for them out of Kefirz's food budget.

I'm gonna get one.
(and YOU should too, yes YOU!)

At the end of the day, all the funds that we make from the patches will go towards server cost, so our community can do shooty business for another year :hist101:
