yay! a brand new game.

okay, first, i need six contestants, no more, no less. then what happens is that io send you off to a desert island with only three items which you may choose yourself.(you may take your clothes, but be realistic about this and try not to be difficult by saying that a certain item is a part of clothing.). then i will put you into differetnt scenarios and situations and you can only use the items you brought to get out of these predicaments. after the first scenario, one of you will be taken out of the game because either you couldn't get yourself out of the predicament, or you did it in an untimely fasion (ie, you got yourself out in a timeframe that would be unrealistic, it'll become more clear as we go along)

at the end, there will be one clear winner and she/he will get a special prize.

Is this going to be anything like William Golding's 1954 novel, Lord of the Flies?
And it depends on when this begins; if it's anytime before Saturday, don't bother counting me; I just won't have the time.

troubles, it's just that i have some very important exams coming up which i would rather nto fail if it's all the same to you. but due to everyiones consistant nagging, here we go.

you've just arrived on a desert island not unlike Monkey island. it is full of monkey's and nothing much else. it is completely uninhabited. there is a beach running all around the island apart from a rock overhanging on the east side with caves which the ocean runs into. there is a volcano in the middle of the island. it is located somewhere in the caribbean so it's pretty hot. and you six have just arrived. the ship you came in on crashed on the rocks and sank with no other survivors apart from yourselves. the only things you could salvage off of the ship before it retreated to the ocean bed were the possesions you stated. there are plenty of trees and wildlife around you, but this will be explained in more detail later.

before the ship sank, you recieve a message via telegraph but were in too much of a hurry to decipher it there and then. when on the beach, with nothing mroe than the clothes on your backa nd the possessions from the ship as well as each other, you read the message. it reads:

We have recieved word that your ship is sinking off the coast of Death Island on the carribean. we will send a ship, but as it is, the waters are so trecherous around that area that we can only send a dinghy big enough for two people and it will be a while, at least a few weeks time. we are sorry that so many people will be left behind but that is how tihngs are going to be.

now it's up to you. within the next few weeks, there will be a series fo event that will happen, killing off one of you at a time until the last man alive will be rescued. who will it be?


The First Task
You have been standing for half an hour on the beach of Death island talking about what is going to happen and how none of you will ever see each other again after this. suddenly, you hear a rustling in the bushes behind you. you all watch wearily as the rustling gets more violent. suddenly out jumps a jaguar and lands in the middle of you all. it looks at each of you contemplating it's next move. it pounces on each of you and one by one tries to fight you. when it's kiled you, or when it's been beaten by you, it moves onto the next one until all are dealt with, and then it leaves.

who will survive this attack? now it's up to you, come up with way that you could have survived this using your objects, but make it believeable (ei, you didn't use your teddybear with armour piercing lasers to kill the thing). rmemeber, if you wan't to, you could help each other and fight it together, or you could put others lives in danger and have the strongest member killed to your liking. anything goes here. will you be the nice loser, or the hard mean winner?

submissions in by friday.

Feral
12-30-2002, 10:23 AM
I assume I just post it here...

I get the jag's attention, then kick the ball over away from us (but not too far). The jaguar goes to the ball. While it is busy with it, I jam my axe deep into it's spine. Letting out a blood-curdling cry, the jaguar keels over and dies, but not before popping my football.

Joshi
12-30-2002, 10:32 AM
yeah, just post it here. i figure that if all posts for this go nito one thread, then in a year or so's time, we can come back and reminise over good times.

also, i will be cutting and copying all to a word program. i will also put a post after each persons submission so they can't change it after (if they edit it, the edit won't count because i'll have the original in my word doc)

so here's the one for feral (you can edit for spelling mistake, but only if they're fatal and chagne what you were meant to say, either way check with me first).

carry on.

Kj°len
12-30-2002, 11:05 AM
Well I'll just take out my trusty gun and shoot it. Though, I'm nice, So i dont kill it, just stop it from killing me.

OR I could let it get close to me, then jam the dynamite on him and run.

OR I could sic Mr. Weasel on him, Mr. Weasel is alway superiour. If that is unbalievable, then lets just say than I used Mr. Weasel as bait so that i could run as the jaguar is eating :p


PS - You did say as MANY different ways possible right?

Joshi
12-31-2002, 07:12 AM
this one's for K-jo. by the way, i'm being nice and olny going with the gun thing, i could have gone with the dynamite thing and therefor you wouldn't have Dynamite left, but you've still got it. just a note, from now one, no muliple scenarios, just one thanx.

Guybrush122
12-31-2002, 12:51 PM
I would take out my trusty flare gun and fire a flare at the sand, the sparks and fire would frighten the beast and it would run away. (Note: I said flare gun with MANY flares so, heh, I still have the flare gun for future tasks :p)

Joshi
12-31-2002, 01:09 PM

I run away, and the jaguar follows me. I arrive at the rocks at the eastside of the island and quickly climb them. When on top I look down, see the jaguar, and faint....I drop my bucket, and because of pure coincidence, it falls over the head of the animal and blinds him. The beast panics, runs away and, after 50 meters, runs into a rock.

When I regain cocience, I see the passed out jaguar, so I climb down, kick it, and before it runs away, take back my bucket.

The jaguar runs back to the other people...

i ll turn on my old lady doll the loudest. the feroucious animal looks at it quite curious at first. when the doll starts to annoy the beast, i run toward suicidalxwing and put it in his back. the beast looks at the poor and frightened contestant, thinking the sound is comming from him. the jaguar decides to chase him

---can i decide other players actions? if the following is illegal, plz just disregard it. thx. btw- i intend to get back my doll---

suicidalxwing runs away and eventually the doll falls off, but the jaguar is too busy chasing the him to realise this. while the jaguar runs after suicidalxwing, i get my doll back


ps- oh, the irony: the object i though i would use less turned out to b the first one i used, lol

Joshi
01-06-2003, 02:23 PM
maybe if somebody around here gave me a raise...

anyway. so friday came and went. so now i have to give the unfortunate bad news to the guy who i think would have died.

it was a close call between Al and Deadmeat because neither of their plans would have worked. Al, if the doll is distracting the jaguar, then surely the jaguar would be angry when you take it away (to put in X-wings back) so it would have attacked to instantly. and deadmeat, a jaguar could easily outrun a human, hands(paws) down. it would have pounced and killed you before you nmade it to the east side of shore (i didn't mention where you were to begin with, but either way, the jaguar would have caught you, they are very good climbers and could have got you climbing the rock face).

so i had to see which was more feasable. normally i would choose out of who would be most likely to die, but because you are both likely to die, i have to pick via means of imagination. who used the most imagination (which is why imagination is important in this game, it may just see that you survive, so K-jo's "i shot him" scenario only worked because it was feasable and would have kept him alive. but please in future be more creative it's a more enjoyable game that way)

so the loser out of Deadmeat_x and Al bBack from Big Whoop is





























SuicidalXWing. he didn't submit a scenario and Al sealed his fate.

this means you all have another chance. so this time, try to be mroe creative like deadmeat and al. and i would also like to ask this of you. make sure that you don't kill or stop the next threat, otherwise it threatening the next contestant wont make sense. use you're imagination and make this good.

the next scenario will be tomorrow. (i promise)

Figures, I'm not around a computer, and it took so long for you to bring the story up. I was gone for a week, and just got home last night. Well, I'm gonna post an interesting demise, just to make it more enjoyable for myself and others.


Story:

The jaguar eyed each person, I however had my back turned and was lost in thought. The jaguar sensing an easy attack, leaped on me and began ripping me apart. Murray is knocked from my hand and begins laughing at me, and commenting on how his evil made it happen.

*END*

Hope you enjoyed, I'm not feeling very imaginative right now, what with finding out I'm dead and such.

shortly after, niko dies on sea inb a terrible storm. his spirit lives on on escapemi, ready to live another day (and take part in desert island bliss 2).

he's still as funny as ever.

okay, so you all (apart from SuicidalXWing who we shall all miss as we eat his carcass) have survived the first test.

big evening draws near. one of you decides it's time to build a fire, but there's only one problem. it's starts raining.

one even bigger problem, a guy in a suit and tie comes along and starts telling you that a monsoon is on it's way, then he leaves abruptly with no explanation of who he was, where he came from and how he got here.

A little rain never hurt anybody. a monsoon kills. who will survive. using you're remaining items, get out of this messy predicament.

good luck.;)

Using on of my dynamite sticks, I blow a huge hole in the side of the cliff that was meantioned before. I run far from the cliff to keep from hitting rocks, or even if the entire cliff falls. Using the hole or rocks that was blown, I go into the hoe or any crack and use the boulderd that were blown up to cover the entrance and stay inside until it all blows over, wickedly, holding on to anything, if the "door" boulders fail.

01-08-2003, 03:18 PM
I dig myself a small burrow in the forest with my trusty axe, the rats and insects scurrying as I do so. I cut down a tree as part of this, then cut it up into firewood. I use the rest to tie my sleping bag to it; it shall serve as a windsock to tell me when the wind is picking up. To prevent it from blowing off completely, I shove my now-burst football onto the top, which I have sharpened into a spear-point.
I cover my burrow-area from the rain with the cut-out vines, creppers, and hedges, and set a fire up with my firewood. When I notice the wind picking up, I run to get my sleeping bag, climb into it, and squeeze up into my burrow, praying for salvation from this dreadful island...

A monsoon...wtf is a monsoon...? I spend some time trying to figure that out, and also how on earth Neil came up with the man in the suit. Eventually, I know two things:
1. A monsoon is something bad
2. Neil is good at creating realistic events...

Luckily, I hear Kjo whispering in Al's ear (trough MSN) what a monsoon is. Fear strikes me. I take a look at my items...a bucket, a slingshot and a bungee rope...Two pieces of rubber and one dented bucket...I'm doomed...

Wait! I get an idea! What if I use the rubbers to tie myself to the rock surface? That way I would get blown away!

...

When I look over my shoulder, I see Al doing the same thing. Even if that would work (hardly think so), I'd probably get 'killed' for lack of inspiration...I'm doomed...

...

With the storm closing in, i get desperat. Feral has dug a nice hole, Kjo has his cave, Al is strapped to the rocks, and I'm there, in the rain, with no clue on how to solve this. I already escaped death once (Neil: I can run VERY fast), but this seems hopeless...I wish I had chosen better items...

...

I wish I was behind my computer, thinking this up...

...

After some time, I decide to step out of the timeframe...Just as I'm about to hit 'fast forward' i hear Neil's voice...
you got yourself out in a timeframe that would be unrealistic...I'm doomed...

...

Right! Time is closing in, so no time to waste! Using the bungee rope and a boulder, I build a contraption on the top of the cliff, and use it to remove one of the builders in front of Kjo's cave (I could draw it if you want), and get into the cave, for some nice private time with Kjo in the dark...

(I know, this solution sucks. My items sucks. I suck. I hope to win the price for best storytelling. Please don't kill me Kjo)

(Neil, you're probably gonna say something like "You didnt have time to build that" or "It would work". That's why I'm gonna draw my contraption. Hold on)

Deadmeat_X
01-09-2003, 11:27 AM
Right, I told you I would draw it! Here, take good look at this! Completely fool proof (yes Neil, I even calculated the maximum length of the bungee rope. So you can't say something like "The rope will get too long").

What if there isn't a tree you can tie the cord to?
How do you know your bungee cord will be able to support the boulders in front of Kj°'s cave?

Al-back from the BigWhoop
01-09-2003, 12:00 PM
a better question: y r u doing taht?



btw, when kjo exploded a cave, he gave 2 alternatives:

1-the whole mountain colapses, in that case i get myself under all thoses rocks and then attack me to the biggest one i can find down there.

2- it opens a cave with lots of cracks, in that case i enter one crack inside the cave and then attack me to the biggest boulder i can find down there.

Kjo made a cave right? To hide in? Well, I want to be in that cave as well, because I can't come up with anything, but Kjo has blocked the entrance with builders. So, to get in, I have to remove one of those rocks right?

I don't think it's THAT hard to follow...

And Xwing, I haven't lost hope. I trust in our fair judge Neil.

Joshi
01-11-2003, 10:25 AM
hang on a second, has everyone asnwered. well, anyway, i'm not actually judging tuill tuesday anyway (remember) so you all still ahve time to add on to this scenario. K-jo, have a conversation with deadmeat or something. maybe one of you could find a way to kill the other. suicidal XWing could haunt us some more. but for now, i'm going to narrate some more.
just for future referance, a monsoon is basically a lot of rain, and i mean a lot. it cauises floods in an instant and basically, it would raise tides and flood the beach. the best thing to do is build a shelter in some high ground. K-jo, i think will live as he is in shelter, but water may leak through and drown him or trap him. Al may be trapped from escaping flooding as he is tied down, and deatmeat is bascially running around like a headless chicken so god knows what's going to happen to him.

[b]As deadmeat uses his simple but overly allaborate contraption to free a rock, water starts gushing in and kjo, thinking quickly, holds his breath. he slowly floats to the top and out of the hole before it starts overflowing. they both get out and are now both in danger. what will happen next. only you can decide.

(i can't believe how well this is going, even i'm on the edge of my seat)

*In danger, I quickly complain about the storyline, I saved myself, it shouldnt be fair that Deadmeat gets to put me in danger*
*Floating above to the top of the cave, I swim out the hole deadmeat made, then come up for air then go under. I repaet this to keep underwater most of the time for most protection from damaging rain.*

don't blame me, it was deadmeat who did this to you.

Deadmeat_X
01-11-2003, 03:13 PM
I'm pissed...

...first of everyone doesn't believe my story, then my work turns out to be all for nothing, then Kjo complains about me putting him in danger (you should thank me. If your cave would have flooded, and you were still in, there wouldn't be a hole to escape trough!), and in the end, I'm still doomed...

...of course, I'm only mad on the island. Behind my PC (yes, it's true, I post from behind a PC), I still love you all...:D

...right, where were we? Oh yeah, the cave is flooding. By putting the bucket on my head, I create a little diving device (in other words, I can stay underwater longer) and follow Kjo out of the cave. I come up for air, and take a look around (while holding the bucket over my head as protection against the rain). All of the beaches are gone. Al's still tied to his rock, but the water's getting close to him as well. Feral seems to be pretty safe...but I already took cover in someone else's hiding place once, and that didn't turn out to good. When I look behind me, I see Kjo swimming and diving (I don't have to keep diving. The bucket, remember?)

Alright, first things first. I swim toward the (remaining) land. When I get there, I quickly take cover under some trees. I get a little broozed, but nothing that would kill me. As I'm standing there, I plan my next mve. The water's still rising...

...I look at Neil's description of the island...

...the vulcano! Why didn't anyone think of that? High place! With new hope, I head towards the vulcano. I stay under the trees, to protect myself from the rain. Now the top of the vulcano doesn't have any trees, so I don't wanna go there. Instead, I stay close to the edge of the forest, under the trees, but still higher then the rest of the island. Still, the rain is hurting me, so I need to get some more cover.

...Feral has been awfully quiet so far...but why not? His idea is good, at least noone has critised it. I decide to go for safelty above originality. But how to dig a hole...I don't have a shovel or something...luckily, I got my trustworthy slingshot. I pick up a little rock (there are plenty of those), and with my slingshot I shoot down a coconut. On a rock, I split it in two...I now got to coconut halves, that I can use to dig with, as well as some delicious coco-milk.

In 5 minutes, I have dug a nice hole. I cover the hole up with vines and pieces of wood, till I have a little roof that will protect me from most of the rain. I get in the hole. The roof isn't waterproof, but I use the bucket to throw most of the water out of the hole...

Now do you believe or do I have to draw it? (please let me draw it...)

Joshi
01-11-2003, 04:54 PM
**sigh** if you want to deadmeat, you can draw it. oh, and i noticed you got the whole bucket thing from "Waterworld", but i'll let it slide. and for future referance, you went to a volcano not a vulcano.

just to let you know though, if you were going for originality, the this is what i would do (no, you cannot use this, i just think it would be funny) you do everything you did up until getting the coconuts and breaking them in half. with two halfs of a cocunut, start banging them together in a rythm near feral. feral gets scared thinking it's the headless horseman who's come for him. feral gets out of his hole and runs away and you take his hole. but none of this has happened, feral is still in his hole and deadmeat is still in his. none of this happened, but i just think that that's what i would do, were i eevr in this situation (saying that, i offcially retire from this game, after this game is finished with all of the tasks completed and one final winner, i will not do another one. instead, someone else will (because it's that good of a game) and i will be a contestant)

01-11-2003, 08:58 PM
wait, theres a flood? is the mountain by the sea? ok, since i havent been hit by the water yet, im gonna untie myself and use the boulders aroud me to make a very thick wall preventing the water from hitting me.

a VERY thick wall really can stop most of the water from passing

now, if the cave im in is 2x2x3 meters, than i have about 12000L of air inside the cave. now, if in a minute i breath about 42 times, taking 1/3L of air each breath, ill b breathing 14L per minute. therefore i ll have more than 14h of breathing. i think a monsoon takes less than that, right?

after some hours, when the monsoon is over, i ll take of the rocks from my wall.

since the cave ddnt colapse with the dinamite, and assuming its in a not-so-big mountain, it probably has 50m of depth. i can swim faster than 1meter/second, so i ll b out of the cave in less than 50 secs. i can hold my breath for lil longer than a minute while swimming, so ll do fine to get out of the water

01-12-2003, 12:03 AM
*While in the water, I see Murray float by, I grab him and put him over my head, noticing he doesnt fit. I throw Murray at Deadmeat for flooding my cave that wouldnt worked fine. I use my blade to saw through some fallen palm leaves and take a few fallen trees when i reach land. I build a little palm box with palm trees padded with palm tre leaves to seal out water. I can get out though. Plus the box is alowed to float as high as the trees its connected to in the "wiring". Then wait again.*

water is starting to enter my sealed cave. i start digging to enlarge my cave, and use the mud as cement in between the rocks. this way, the more i dig the safer i ll b.

if everything should fail, i just destroy a piece of my wall and start doing the same thing as kjo, only i ll attach myself somewehre with my rubberband to prevent me from being dragged by the current. but i dont think it will fail, i think at the end of the storm, this is how its going to get

okay, so considering Al's leaving tommorrow morning, i'll start the next task today. the monsson stops and we have some survivors. but one is missing who is it?


well this was tough one, out of kjo, feral, al, deadmeat and, hang weren't there five of you. oh well. anyway. lets review. deadmeat was imaginative and came up with amusing pictures whilst running around like a maniac. Al uses maths and logic to live. Kjo uses a crude method of rocks and toenail clippings to live and feral digs a hole.

the dead man has to be Kjolen. sorry, but toenail clippings will not reinforce a wall and even if it did, you'd need more that what you can come up with. the water gushes in crushing our bravce hero. long live his spirit (which will now haunt the island along with xwing)

okay, now fotr the next task. simple really. the volcano erupts. slowly but surely, motlen rock and magma starts to creep down all of the sides of the volcano. your task is to live. so go ahead.

i think about going to the sea, but that would b too risky, since the waters are still very dangerous. cant go to my cave either, when the lava hits it, the cave will work like an oven, baking me alive.

note to self1: keep an eye on deadmeat
note to self2: dont talk to self out loud, like deadmeat

*When we finish the hole, the sand barrier, and the rock barrier, we decide to extend it. I find a flat rock good for digging and start diging diagonally to the left. Deadmeat digs diagonally to the right. we stop when we reach the water, making some sort of parabola. The lava has destroyed all the forest and its on its way to the beach. we start building the contraption. After we are done, the lava hits the shore but didnt pass the sand barrier yet. We see murray in despair, running toward the water. He jumps on a rock inside the water thinking he is safe, but the lava hits the water, raising water vapor incredibally hot. Through the thick vapor wall, we cannot see murray anymore. we only hear his screams. Since the lava hasnt yet hit inside our parabola, we stay close to our rock inside the water.

The water starts to get violent and warm up. Its not strong enough to pull us, but it will be. After an hour or so, ammount of lava is so huge, that it passes through our sand barrier and fills our channel. We decide its time to go to the rock in the sand. The sand is hotter than usual, but its not too hot. We take of our shirts and put it on our heads to protect us from the sun. Our channel is not fully filled, and the lava the gets inside follows the channel and falls in the sea. We start bringing in some water from the sea. Its not cold anymore, but it is still refreshing.

The sun is starting to go away. Good, now the waters that will come to our shores will be cold because of the absence of the sun. That will prevent it from heating to much, but it will get very very violent. There is too much lava coming down from the volcano, and it has already filled our channel. it has invaded the middle of our parabola, and thanks to the rock barriers, the only places without lava are a circle around each of the 2 big rocks. Its unbelievably hot, weve finished almost all our fruits and we cannot stop bringing water.

Night has finally come and the tide is rising. The ammount of lava comming out of the volcano is very low. The water enters wots left of our channel. We are now surrounded by very hot water and water vapor. We realize now a mark almost a meter high in the big rock behind us. That must be where the water reaches in high tide. The temperature of the water will be too big for us to bear. We decide to go through the rubberband to the other rock. The lava will not reach us there, and the water there wont be as hot. We pick up the few fruits left and go to the other rock.

The tide keeps rising, but the water isnt so violent. We are sitting in the rock and the water is about our chests. Now the water is kinda cold. Through the rubberband (half of it now underwater) we got to the other rock. The water there is a little warm, but its fine. The rest of the lava is now cooling of. We sit on the shore with our backs on the big rock while the sun starts to rise*

(...a side comment on Al's wonderful story...)

Al is talking bout the sun, how we have to protect ourselves from it, and how the sun heats up the water...What al seems to forget (but I, the mastermind, off course remember :D) is that after a volcano eruption, there's always a lot of smoke and ashes in the sky, completely blocking the sun. We still put the shirts on our heads, but only to protect ourselves from the ashes that fall down, not the sun. Also, we use one shirts (Al's off course :D) to filter the water from the sea, since it's full of ashes, and I would want to wash myself with carbon :P.

well, i've completely lost track of time, but i guess now would be a good time to tell you who's dead and set another task.

so, who survived the... um... oh yeah, the volcano eruption. well Al and Deadmeat survive because of their inventiveness. so i guess feral would have to die. sure, suicidalXwing may eb able to pick up solid things such as murray, but do you really think he'd be strong enough to pick up a whole human being. plus, like i said before, ghosts of teh dead cannot effect teh actually game, just hang around to make things funny and interesting. and also, you were on a rock in the middl of a lot of molet rock, how hot woudl that be, if the rock didn't melt, i'd give odds on you definately melting.
sorry feral, but your dead. come back as a ghost. :D

but now, the final hour is upon us. of course when i say hour, this'll probably take a week, but you catch my drift. it's the final showdown between Al-back from the BigWhoop and DeadmeatX. by this time next week (or when i can remember) one of you will be dead. the survivor, will get off the island alive and will have the prize and privilage of hosting the next Desert Island Bliss. how will one die, how will one survive. who will win?

**the sea acts up, a storms a brewing. but this time, there is no monsoon, there is no rain, there is just the wind, the howling wind. the moon is high and the waves are large, much larger than one would hope to find. lighting strikes the waters a couple of miles south from the island. when suddenly, the most unexpected thing happens. a huge wave of desrtuction hits adn a wave of seawater rises from teh sea and threatens everything in it's path. it heads with enormouse speed towards the island, nothing is safe, nothing will live, maybe not even the island. how will our heros get out of this one. they never showed this on reality TV.

the rest, is up to you.

That will allow me to breath while im attached to the mountain and the current is still strong. when i attach myself, i ll make sure thta i ll be able to untie it fairly easy later. Chances are that im gonna get quite sick, swallow water and dirt, but at least i ll have a chance to survive.

I'm going down to Ft. Knox for Basic Training soon, and then down to Georgia for Advanced Training and I might not have access to a computer for awhile.

Am I the only one that's seeing how unrealistic this is? The wave starts a couple of miles from the island. Let's say 10 kilometers. The wave moves, quote, with "enormeous speed". Let's say 300 km/h, that what I call pretty big speed. Than some maths: In one minute, the wave has gone for 5 kilometers. That eans that we got around 2 minutes left before everything is destroyed. And we're supposed to do what? Tie ourselves to the volcano? I think Al's plan takes at least 5 minutes. Mine could be done in around 1, but you'll probably call it unrealistic. Bah. You're to say.

But OK, a realstic approch...

Quckly, I grab my bungee rope, and run up the volcano. When I'm at the crater, I tie the rope to a rock, and to my feet, and jump. Goodbye cruel world...when I stop bouncing up and down, I grab a rock on the inside of the crater. It is pretty hot, but I can manage.

The wave hits the island, everything is swept away, I'm still in the crater. When the crater starts filling with water, I climb up using my rope, till I'm out of danger...


OK that's it. Or does anyone want to hear my unrealistic, but way more creative solution?

ah, we alsways award marks for creativity, post the other one adn i'll choose which one i like. and yes, this would take very little time to reach the island, this is why it's the last round, it's got to be hard.
Al's might work if he did it fast. remember, his knife is probably really sharp and we don't know how far up the mountain he is anyway.
Just in case you were too lazy to look at the cool picture i did especially for this (well, not really, it's actually for my fan novel on worldofmi, currently containing the first chapter, go read now) here it is.

yeah, i ll try to go fast, and i dont need to go very high up the volcano, just enought to b protected (as much as possible) by it. bsides, the upper part of the volcano is probably still incandescent.
and while the wave hits the island, i ll wont b able to breath, but when the water starts lowering, i ll breath through the bamboo while untieing myseflf.
then i ll have to go to my doctor and then i ll have to find the bastard taht is doing this to me with a voodoo doll. if im lucky, my doctor is the bastard, then i ll b hitting 2 birds with one shot. :D

***PLEASE NOTE: THE NEXT STORY IS COMPLETELY RIDICOOLOUS OR HOWEVER YOU SPELL IT. REALISM? NOT AT ALL. SOME MAY CALL THIS CHEATING, I CALL IT BEING ORIGINAL. OFTEN, THAT'S ONE AND THE SAME.

BTW: THIS STORY IS BASED ON ANOTHER CALCULATION, WHERE WE HAVE 30 SECONDS INSTEAD OF 2 MINUTES***



They've gone too far. It was fun at first, playing with that big cat, hiding from the rain. But this, this isn't funny anymore. In 30 seconds, this island will be gone. And what are we supposed to do? Take cover on the vulcano? The tsunami will hit us before we even reached the top. We're screwed.

I see Al running up the vulcano anyway. He wont make it.

1 second already passed. 29 left till impact. And I'm still on the beach.

Amazing I got this far really, if you look at it. I was nearly killed by the jaguar, went for a very lame solution when the monsoon came, let Al do all the work with the vulcano...I suck...

Another second passed. 28 left. And I'm still on the beach.

Desperatly, I try to remember everything that has happened so far. There has got to be something everyone overlooked, and that might save me....

...it hits me like a coconut falling from a tree...the monsoon-man! He came from and disappeared to nowhere. But nowhere doesn't exist, and none of us saw a boat/chopper/plane leave, so he's still on the island! And probably in a really safe place as well!

Alright, only 27 secs left. I start running over the beach. Within 10 seconds, I find the spot where the mysterious man had gone into the forest. I follow the path, meanwhile looking out for anything suspicious. I find it 100 meters from the beach. It's a button. A button, on a tree. I almost ran past it, since it's hard to see.

What to do when you see a mysterious button:
1. Don't think, press.

A trapdoor opens under my feet after I press the button.

...and land on a bunch of pillows, that break my fall (and not my bones). I look around.

I'm in a small cave. Light is coming from a couple of lightbulbs. The cave is empty, apart from a console in one corner. On the console there are a couple of videoscreens, showing variuos locations on the island. On one of them, I see Al, running up the mountain. while i'm looking, the images are replaced by statics as the camera's are swept away by the killer wave. The loudspeakers, connected to microphones on the island, make an awful noise, before they're swept away as well. The ground is shaking. The island is no more...

Beneath the videoscreen the videoscreen, I see a couple of buttons. They're labeled "Jaguar", "Monsoon", "Vulcano"...the button labeled "Tsunami" looks recently pressed.

But what really draws my attention is the man behind the console. It's him. The monsoon-man. He wears a grey suit, has got brown hair, an everyday face, glasses. When he starts talking, he sound pretty nervous.

"So mister Meat, we meet at last. I must say I'm impressed. You passed with flying colours."
"Passed??? What do you mean?"
"Don't act like you don't know mister Meat. This was all a test to find the right man"
"WHAT!!! You killed those people just for a test? And whaddya mean the right man?"
"The right man is you. And you're gonna work for us"
"No way!"
"Yes way. Either that or..."
"Or what?"
"Or I can give you a fight you cannot win..."

*A green portal opens. Through it see an alien world*

"Well mister Meat? What will it be?"
"Hold on a sec. you ripped this completely from the ending of Half-Life, didn't you?"

*The man starts crying. The portal closes*

"Yes, it's true! I can't be original! I'm such a loser! I wanted to do something like this all mylife, but I couldn't come up with a good reason...until I played that game!"
"You're sick"
"I know. But you're not really to speak, right?"
"What? Why?"
"You're not the sanest one yourself"
"What are you saying?"
"Oh don't act like you don't know. You made this all up. It's all your imagination. I'm your imagination as well. That makes you the sicko!"

My world collapses. He's right. This is all just a dream. The cave and the man fade away as I wake up from this nightmare...





...Awake. Finally. I take a look around. I'm lying in the...sand? Around my are...others...lying...dead...or sleeping....? I hear the sea...remember...last night...the storm...boat...sinking...

I jump up. Right in front of me is a vulcano. To the left, I see some rocks hanging out over the sea. The jungle is lying before me...

..start to scream....

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..."

The camera zooms out. From the sky you can clearly see the round shape of the island. Everything is calm...for now...

"...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!"



THE END

Deadmeat, you can't...






































...copywright something you so obviously stole from so many different movies and games.

i'd have to say that the clear winner here is Deadmeat simply because he made me laugh. Al dies because someone had to (even though his plan was basically flawless, a jaguar came along just before the wave hit and ripped him to shreds because the man pushed the wrong button when crying to Deadmeat about his falsehood)

no need, the game is over, it is time for this thread to eb stored away into teh archives until sometime in the far distant future, it is brought back as an acknowledgement of classic forum game.

plus we need the room for DIB2 if deadmeat ever comes back.
