Empanado's 4A Avatars!

Greetings, fellow buccaneers! I come here with an unique offer:
Avatars!
Ah, but what may be so interesting about these avatars, you may ask yourself? You may be, in fact, at this very moment, planning to write an essay for your class on how Empanado's avatars are nothing new, and he just wants to lay his grubby hands on some pirate Joe/Jane's hard-earned poes.
But that's where you're wrong! These avatars have four unique features that make them exceptional. These are known as the FOUR A's:

1- Avatarial. All these Avatars are 100% usable in avatar form. It has become common for many a pirate to purchase an expensive and fancy avatar, unbeknownst to them that it was no avatar at all!
Well, there's no such funny business in these avatars. You can have the guarantee that all of them are avatars!

2- Accesible. Avatars available for the masses! You won't find any 150x150 pixelated square for the irrisory price of 100k+, here. These are bargains! Available to YOU, the middle class pirate/piratette, who knows that s/he can't spend a month's salary on spiffy drawings when he still needs to put food on the table for the wife and kids, or for some lazy, alcoholic pirate husband!
For this, avatars go for the measley, miserable, laughable price of 6000 PoE. That's Six-thousand Pieces o' Eight. 6k, for the word-shortening lovers.

3- Awesome. I am no fancy-pants artist. I am, like you, a man of the people! I know how things work in everyday life. I am familiar with the inequalities and unfairness of modern pirate society. You order an avatar, and it arrives half an hour later, and even worse, all the awesome on it has worn off. And then you say "Garçon! This avatar has ran out of awesome!", and you are then approached by some gorilla-ish former boxer in a suit who explains to you how it was clearly stated in the menu (with sub-microscopic fineprit, that is) that all the avatars were only awesome for five minutes!
Well, no such cons, scams, malarkey and skull-dudgery here. These avatars are awesome, and will still be awesome when your grandchildren's grandchildren are old and dieing of cancer.

4- Anti-Nazi. One of the most important features you can ask to an avatar. Many a time, you'll feel absolute infatuation by an avatar/avatar artist out there, only to find out that they have the questionable custom to shout "SIEG HEIL!" on ocassion, and have manifested controversial opinions on the veracity of the Holocaust. They may even eat puppies! There's no safety in avatars if they are (or are made by) evil white supremacists. That's why all of these avatars are absolutely and one hundred precent minority-loving.

"Gee whiz, Empanado, this sounds incredibly swell, but how do they look like?", you may ask. Well, suffer no more, for your tormenting doubt is to be dissipated NOW!:

Not for the time being, but you get moral satisfaction for promoting El Topo. Isn't that swell?

Re: Empanado's 4A Avatars!

Can I still order one if I'm a fancy-pants artist and not-middle-class?

If so, I'd like to.

Re: Empanado's 4A Avatars!

I have been looking for a vendor of anti-nazi avatars for quite some time. Yes, Llama's avatar is clearly anti-nazi but he didn't offer a guarantee. Sign me up Tovarisch.

Re: Empanado's 4A Avatars!

The only thing holding me back in the past was no absolute guarantee by the artist for everlasting awesomeness. I have not looked at yer work long enough to test that guarantee, but I trust there's some kind of refund option available if the event that a significant drain of awesomeness should occur?

Also, is it possible to order a little extra anti-nazi?

Re: Empanado's 4A Avatars!

I just got my 4A Avatar and I must say, I couldn't be happier. I'll be employing it after Irelay's avatar (used currently) has it's 7 days in the sun.



Well done, sir.

Refunds will be unnecessary, but existent. You can ask your avatar to be replaced with a new one if you're unsatisfied with it in the first place, though.

 
Also, is it possible to order a little extra anti-nazi?


It is not only possible but ENCOURAGED. That's why I now unveil a new type of avatar: The 200% ANTI-NAZI AVATAR. This one is a partially-premade avatar, whose customizable parts are:
- The pirate on the back (i.e. YOU!)
- Props (fish, hammers, bludgeons, etc.)
- Your pirate name on top (Why, of course!)
- The verb (suggestions: smash, smite, beat, splat, blast)
An example of this avatar would be:



Given that this type of avatar is partially pre-made, its price is ONLY 4500 POE.

Do not miss this golden opportunity to show the world that your ideology is far away from Nazism!

EDIT: Ahem. It's 4.5k, not 4k. Anti-Nazism has its price, folks!

Re: Empanado's 4A Avatars!

Now *there's* some genuine beefed up Anti-Nazi! I feel inspired. Is lay-away an option? If I find a term for it that begins with 'A'? Any Ideas, anyone?


This one deserves an award.

I'm sorry, but discounts only exist for actual conquistadors, not for your everyday jackanapes who has laid his grubby hands on a fine piece of conquistadorish headgear.

Why, certainly! Avatars can come with all kinds of vertebrates & invertebrates alike. Even fungi, minerals, seaweed and/or amoebas!
