The Legend of Admiral Pwnsberry. Rufus T. Pwnsberry was born in Grimsby England, 1754. The town was previously titled "Great Grimsby" to distinguish it from Little Grimsby, a village about 14 miles (22 km) to the south, near Louth. Pwnsberry left England to join the Royal Flag Core when he was 18. The Core was to be present each time England expanded the Empire to insure the correct size flag was being used. He quickly moved up thru the ranks achieving command of a regiment during the American Revolution. At each Engagement the correct British flag flew, win or lose! This impressed the American high command and French advisors, often causing huge delays in the battles while both sides stood in awe of the correctness of the flag selected by the British RFC. A string of ripping successes displaying a perfectly displayed swath of colours earned him his first command. Then Captain Pwnsberry lead a shipbourne squad of crack marines to many victories, each with a perfect flag.
His death was the cause of his fame as he unintentionally invented the first person shooter. The Captain was overseeing the capture of the American ship The Constitution, "Old Ironsides", standing directly behind the best marine rifleman onboard. He would command to fire, move left, run; all while mirroring his commands directly behind the marine. Upon seeing an enemy combatant take aim on his marine, he commanded "Duck!", but he failed to do the same. Pwnsberry sustained a gunshot wound to the midsection, he died at the scene. Upon word reaching British High Command, he was posthumously awarded the rank of Admiral for his act of valour.
This practice was initially declared as The Pwnsberry Maneuver, those that gave their lives performing said maneuver gave the Full Pwnsberry. Through the years it became simply Pwnsberried and eventually the modern vernacular created Pwnd in the upmost measure of brevity.
His invention didn't gain any press at the time, however in the 1970's the first recreations in a much safer digital realm were created. The FPS eventually gained mass appeal in the 1990's and his name was finally known to all as the father of the First-Person Shooter: Admiral Pwnsberry, The Visionary. Truly a man ahead of his time, behind a marine, in front of a bullet.
