control the fun so were going to start with a few of the fundamentals. Obviously the choices are debatable wheres the fun if theyre not?? but the rules are adamant:
1) No Superheroes. Itd be way too easy simply to put Superman on the island so he can do all the difficult or menial tasks in an instant! Thats dull! Were looking to expound on human characteristics, or as close as, in this mini-foray into the absurd.
2) No real characters! If a character is based on a real historical person then thats admittable. However, opting to share an island with Alexander the Great because a) hes awesome and b) there was, albeit a terrible, film made about him by Oliver Stone, is not cricket! Fiction only!
3) Less of a rule and more of an aim, nobody can ever guarantee that a particular group of individuals will all get on with each other but every member has to offer something to the group. This will become clearer in the course of things but, for the time being, well just accept that a benevolent goal of concord amongst the members is paramount.
As was mentioned earlier, the game is moot without debate and discussion so this is very much an interactive exercise. If you think another character would better fit the social role for which theyve been chosen then say so with gusto! Gusto and explanations, everybody loves full sentences!
OK! Preconceptions at the ready? Then lets begin!
