Next Level Unlocked! PAAAAAAAANK Charity Diamonds Still Availble! 584,908.26/1,000,000 Our dear friend Pyro has recived a flag for his land of Pyrovia, a sheild to emblazen it upon and an endless supply of fire from the Eternal Flame of Pyrovia. Also Iron Rank but you fine folks of IcicleCraft have probably noticed that. There's still plenty more chances to donate to get everyone's pal Pyro Gold Rank and the lovly perks that come with it. Like an endless supply of food and a suite in Omio's impenetrable Tower of Zot! Remember folks, if we can break 5 Million before the end of summer the Isle de Amanita will be giving out Fabulous Prizes* to all participants, not just our top contributors. Top contributers still get the best prizes though. Secondly, to raise a bit more liquid capital for those poor needy Pyros. For a limited time only, Charity Diamonds will be available at the market place for a staggering 42% discount of standard prices. Yes folks for 175G each, just look for the mossy wall under the big helmet. between the quartz tower and obsidian block. 25% of all profits from the Charity Diamonds will be placed in a community fund, counting towards the total donations and help fund rewards for our top contributers. I filled up a small chest last night, can you make me fill it back up again? And last but not least, the Isle de Amanita and it's associated Mycolonies are providing lucrative labor oppertunities. Check the discord Trade channel and the shout box for more information, or ask master777shadow for details. Stretch goal 5 Steely Resolve: 500k Spoiler: Train Wrecked! Iron Rank for Pyro. Yes, G in IcicleCraft carries far less weight than the American dollar... Distant chants of USA! USA! USA! But, in great numbers, where ants can move rubber tree plants, so too can virtual currency reach into physical wallets. With this mighty donation, Pyro can finally have for himself a title and the modest powers that come with it, bestowed upon him by the caring people of IcicleCraft. We will also trust him with an unbreaking flint & steel and a shield with his own banner to display. So he can spread the spirit of his Pyrovian Nation across the land, for better or worse. Yes Cetec I'm footing the bill here. Plz dont hike the price up suddenly. k thx bai. Stretch goal 6 Gold Star Effort: 1,000,000G We bump Pyro to Gold Member status. In addition Pyro will be delivered a breeding stock of exotic and elusive Mooshrooms* so that he may never go hungry again. Maybe even throw in a fancy fishing rod just in case… *Or just a ton of leather and cooked beef if fungal infested cow pens aren't zoned for that massive hole. Stretch goal 7 Shine Bright Like A Diamond: 2,500,000 We let Pyro know we've got his /back with a Diamond Rank upgrade. And we cover the rental costs for the beacons required to speed up Pyro's hole digging, plus set up and tear down. Bet we can afford to pay for some slave labor well equiped miners to grind that stone and dirt to bedrock with funds like this too. Like. A a bunch of beacons. Quads, the good stuff. Light the whole place up like the Vegas strip on Christmas. Stretch goal 8, Beyond The Impossible: 5,000,000G As of this writing, Icicle Craft doesn't even have this much money minted in circulation, and over half of it is likely locked away in long forgotten accounts. But I believe in you fine folks, in the great moving force that is the IcicleCraft community spirit. If you can do the impossible and raise up and donate more money than even exists, not only will we have Pyro soaring to new heights with Emerald Rank, but all of his equipment will be ensured for a lifetime guaranteed warranty. That's right folks, all Pyro has to do is offer some shred of proof that these community funded items have been lost or destroyed, and the manufacturer, yours truly, will offer a full and complete* replacement until the end of the world itself! *note, infinity bows will be provided instead of the unobtainable mending/infinity. Your efforts will be given immortality, and Pyro will never again be left naked, cold and alone. Because he will always have his equipment, and the magic of your friendship imbued into it. [Resist great urge to play MLP:FiM theme here.] Spoiler: Da Original Pitch Ladies, Gentlemen, Fungis & Fungals and all members new and old of our fine server. I come before you today to draw your attention to our neediest members of this fine community that we have long put our time, blood, sweat, tears, hearts, souls and even physical currency to nourish and help grow. But still, many of our less fortunate members struggle, these players, your own server mates whom you choose to spend so many of your leisure hours with. They are hurting, my friends. They struggle with their toils even within our welcoming and friendly blocky lands. None should suffer like this, not on OUR server. Not good ol' IcicleCraft. No sir! So I ask of you, friends, Romans, Nords, countrymen beyond the boarders of a physical realm even! Show our most unfortunate players that you care, aid them and sooth their suffering. The hands of many can shoulder the burden of another, so that they may come to you when you are in need. Today, we focus on this trusted member of our community, a man who has given much and has worked long to make himself a place within our server. This is Pyrowarrior99. Often better known as Pyro, far and wide across our fair IcicleCraft. Pyro is a long time member of our proud community since [insert join date or server version here]. Pyro has fallen on hard times, for months he has not only been without proper shelter, but also naked and with only cheap and rusty tools. And every day he breaks his back, and often times much more, digging a pit so that he may build the foundation for his home. With no armor or shelter to protect him from the elements and the monsters that plague the darker corners of our otherwise brilliant and peaceful lands. Pyro struggles to tame a massive plot of this hazardous frontier, cleansing it with fire so that it's boarders remain safe for as long as it may stand. Pyro needs your help folks. Not just in labor, but in offering him the supplies that he so deserves. No member of our community so distinguished as he should be left to wallow in a pit naked and with shoddy beggar's tools. NAY I SAY! FOR OUR GOOD MAN PYRO NEEDS TOOLS AND RAIMENTS WHICH REFLECT UPON HIS SHINING SOUL! That is why I ask you, the fine and generous members of our community, open your hearts and your wallets, to aid our good friend and brother Pyro, for he would surely do the same if you were in such dire need. Spoiler: The Primary Goal A Safer Pyro: 55k A full suit of the highest quality diamond armor, enchanted with: Protection IV to keep him safe from harm. Unbreaking III and Mending to make sure it lasts and endures like his devotion to our community. Reparation III and Aqua Affinity, so that not even the cold unforgiving depths of the ocean can impede our dearest Pyro in his travels across and within the seas of our server. Thorns III upon his chest plate, so that his enemies are cut when they seek harm against our beloved Pyro, and it shall be our wrath unleashed that strikes them down for daring to harm one of our own. May it always be close to his heart, as he is to ours. Feather Falling IV and Depth Strider III so that neither jagged cliffs nor raging rivers can impede in Pyro's journeys across this land. With our wills poured into his boots neither the harsh pull of gravity nor the crushing grasp of Poseidon shall hamper Pyro in his endevors in taming the dangerous corners of our lands. Spoiler: A note to Pyro. Plz don't read unless you're him. Is personal <3 Pyro. I swear. To every god and demon I don't worship, and all my of ancestors.

Sharpness V, to cut down his foes with all of our might. Fire aspect II so that his enemies may feel the fires of the nether itself.

Details later. All charitable donations are to be sent to and recorded by master777shadow. The post below will track every donation for our current charity fund raiser. Spoiler: Hold on man, seriously, WHAT? This is a Charity Fund. All proceeds pay for the goals above. Material costs and labor. Once a goal is met the items will be delivered to Pyro ASAP. The charity fund will persist until all goals are funded, or when tracking donations becomes infeasible in parallel with other projects. Let's say around September? Maybe later if steady donations keep coming in. Spoiler: And what's in it for me? Well, giving for a good cause is rewarding in itself. Your donations will be recorded for all to see. All funds raised will also benefit the economic prosperity of the Isle de Amanita, allowing laborers better pay and it's exports to be produced and sold at surplus rates.
