It's all part of a clever plan to win the animals trust, then kill them and usurp the natural kingdom when they least expect it.

I'm a white dude from irish and germanic ancestors. I'm so white that I glow in the dark.

Of course we should have a veterinarian if we can get one. What happens if the island has boars or pigs and we need to start breeding and caring for them?

Eh, I think we might have a chance. Depends on how many people there are, how bountiful the island is, and the skills we have at our disposal.

The hardest part might be having a leader who's charismatic enough to keep us together, but smart enough to know how to delegate effectively and get things done.

Must agree. If there's a hostile cult of psychotic barbarians on this island, you're getting sold out to it.

See, this is why you shouldn't assume just based on where they're living right now. It makes an ass out of you. And me? I just think you're all a bunch of stark raving mad lunatics who use their few moments of sanity to talking about Warcraft lore (and other things), and by jove, nobody is proving me wrong yet.

That said... I guess I'd say Levi, but it'd be after a war of attrition where the other choices end up murdering each other due to a political/religious debate gone horribly, horribly awry.

Not that it matters what I think, I'd never get on a goddamn airplane in the first place, even in hypothetical scenarios where horse tranqs are used.

Nobody would play the Game of Island-Thrones with me? Nobody?

I was looking forward to raising three Salamanders and an army of savages to reclaim the coconut throne...

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

ARM would probably lead us to our doom, unless he downloaded the Survivalist skill pack beforehand.

Well, in much the same way that I absolutely expect Verdande and Fojar to come to blows, I think Xil and Fojar being stuck together would prove to be hilariously gruesome after, say, five minutes. So I'd say the issue would handle itself pretty handily.

Well there are quite a few islands in the pacific about the size of Rhode Island, with good ecodiversity, such as boars, lots of birds, coral reefs(which means lots of fish!), and fruit. Most Pacific Islands seem to have inland bodies of water, so fresh water will be availible. Most local tribes in the pacific seem to be used to other people and are mostly not hostile it seems. There aren't a lot of huge land predators to worry about either, aside from a few threats(such as Komodo dragons depending on where we are), so most likely the biggest issue we'll face is disease and infections(particularly from insects and other small critters), possible hypothermia if we don't find/build shelter quick enough(some of the wettest places on Earth are in the Pacific Islands), and of course, each other.

Plane crash on the way to Blizzcon. Sounds like fun!

Should there be a division in leadership, Id probably go with Team Cantus.

Within that group, I might end up playing the Amber role to someone with a more dramatic personality who could protect me and present a bigger target to potential enemies.

If my designated ally turned out to be the scheming or revolutionary type, they could play on my latent desire for behind-the-scenes power and influence to get me involved in their plot. Depending on my choice of partner and the way events play out, this could end with

(a) my ally betraying and murdering me to show how evil they really are,
(b) someone else murdering me to show how evil they are, and my ally carrying my dead body around as they wreak bloody vengeance, or
(c) a poignant and tragic joint death scene, with an exchange of bitterly humorous and genre-savvy final words.

In any case, our small but dedicated cult fandom would spend the rest of the show writing fix-it fic.
