Founding

The Pelipper Times was founded when Brokate decided she wanted to write more about what was going on in the server. The Pelipper Times' Main Office was soon built thereafter, consisting of two floors: one for the public and another reserved for writers and staff.

The Pelipper Times' logo was actually inspired by Pete from Animal Crossing, who delivers mail. The concept of a pelican turned into Pelipper the pokemon due to brokate's inability to remember the real name of the animal.

Hiatus

Shortly after the release of its second volume, the Pelipper Times took a brief hiatus to prepare for its next publication. Unfortunately soon after, its chief writer, brokate, became inactive. The Pelipper Times remained in hiatus until February 24, 2021 when Grooge64 declared the organization as defunct.

Donations and Pelipper Times Official Items

Taken from the Pelipper Times Main Office Booklet:

In the beginning, the Pelipper Times were fully funded by brokate herself. This took time which delayed publications; to help with the production of new volumes and reprintings, The Pelipper Times is now accepting donations of these following items: book and quill, book, ink sac, and paper. All donations are welcomed.

Additionally, in order to show their thanks to anyone who donates to the Pelipper Times, they will be gifted a Pelipper Times official banner as well as a thank you note to anyone who donates. This is what a Pelipper Times official banner looks like:
