    Welcome to the island of /tg/, from previous threads we've learned that /tg is a cross section of modern society with ancient techniques. For those who haven't seen it;

    The original post;
    Everyone on earth is killed except for the people who have been on 4chan in the last 24 hours.You get the choice to kill yourself, or you get 10 minutes and then you're teleported to a subtropical island populated by the other people of the board you frequent most often with the objects on your person (what you are wearing and holding).The other boards are alive and on different places of the archipelago. So, naturally, the populace depends on the continents.The Earth's atmosphere is no longer fucked up, and all the resources on the Earth have been restored to record levels. Long-extinct plants and animals live once more, although the island would have a limited large predator population.Moot is dead, and we don't have means of communicating with other islands. What does /tg/ do?

    The point of origin is the best possible starting place for survival and thriving.

    back to raiding( if we do ) here are ground rules

    1. only on camps with no more than 10 people
    2. 2 scouts will check the day before to see if its worth it
    3. only raid when absolutely necessary
    4. No survivors and no speaking to outsider about it

    with these rules we assure that the cost to gain ratio is to our liking and we wont start a war.

    If we have the right equipment, we can probably assemble log houses in a couple of weeks. not exactly brick houses, but shelter is a start.

    Maybe even build walls around settlements.

    If solar pannels are avaliable we will be able to have a degree of modern convenience.

    ...why is the setup time so variable, some give instant transformation, some give you 20 minutes, others give you 24 hours.

    1st generation would need to be the strictest on breeding; to a point where the females would have to have a different male partner for every offspring just to try and get as much diversty as we have into the offspring. By second generation the sexes would be more or less even in number again, and the only problem would be to ensure nobody marries their half-sister; by about fourth we'd be back to normal.

    Politically, /tg/ is secure for the moment, and can worry about building a society more then defending our borders.Of our closest neighbours none of /lit/, /ck/, /u/ or /d/ are terribly agressive, and we can turn them into freindly trading partners without much trouble. /co/ is the nearest plausable rival, but they'd more likely be too distracted with the possible problems of /k/ to bother with us; they could even be a local Bro. So for the most part, we tame the land and civilise, leaving our society a strong legacy to build upon.

    The benefits system in the UK is pretty decent, it's the implementation that's fucked. I've been on and off of jobseeker's allowance as the only work I can get is temporary with an employment agency and I'm planning on going back to college next year, yet I still get so much shit when I go to sign on from the staff in the jobcentre, meanwhile I can hear useless cunts who have never worked a day in their lives spinning their shitty excuses in the booth next to me and not getting any shit for it. THAT is why our benefits system is fucked; the people who run it just don't give a fuck.

    I'm interested in the climate. How's the weather during different seasons? Are these tropical islands or not? What animal lifeforms are present on our island? I'm sure we could try and survive, at first, solely on herbs, fruit, vegetables and such, but we need meat. If we don't get to hunting animals, pretty soon you're gonna catch one of your fellows observing your cheeks and licking his lips in anticipation. There are mountainous areas, right? That means caves. Btw, for the cooking and hunting part I can contribute, since I've been hunting from the age of... 11... and learning to skin and gut it, and then make it edible. Uncle was pretty strict on that, we never killed anything that we didn't end up eating afterwards. One other thing: what predatory animals are present on the island?

    Funny you should mention bath houses, I actually watched a video on them today. Building a bath house is very doable although I doubt we will have one that will be able to handle the amount of people on /tg/ island in our first year. That said, within three years if we handle the major problems of living in the wild we could build a pretty nice but simple bath complex. It takes more than a year to build a bath house well because many of the clay tiles and other clay pieces take several weeks to months to dry properly, then add the construction time and the size of the building and it becomes quite a project. If we're lucky we might have some hot springs to build over.

    Clothing would be a bigger issue than I think has come up (though I haven't followed every discussion.) Yes, there are solutions, but none of them are especially low-tech or easy if you want a sustainable, efficient process (i.e. tanning the leather, going from plant fibers all the way to cloth)

    So, make sure you load up on tough, easily washed clothing.


    Yeah. Something lower (possibly on a sliding scale - 16/20 is fine, 16/50 is not) probably, but definitely something.

    You know that some boards are going to end up with rape camp type atrocities. Would raiding those boards to free the prisoners be viable? Faster watercraft and good home defenses would be important at that point, and lookout towers (with a mirror or smoke signal comm system?) at enough points along the coast to spot incoming counter-raids.

    I think, if we know of serious atrocities taking place we should do something about them if possible. But we needn't start a war over it if we can apply pressure via other methods. No sense heaping bloodshed on bloodshed unless necessary.

    We shouldn't act like we can police the world, either, at least not unless we have enough allies and enough resources to actually do it.

    Yeah, that was my concern - various fine lines between right and wrong, tactically sound vs. unsound, etc.

    On the other hand, becoming a clear leader for human rights would be very beneficial in the long-run if it doesn't get everyone killed. The more boards with more females are probably not going to make alliances with /b/, for instance.

    Population exchange to even out the ratio, plus mutual defense, outbreed the evil fuckers, and a few generations down the road we're approaching the point where we'd have the power to march in, liberate anyone who needs/wants it (again, possible slippery moral ground there), and then just leave and let them tear each other apart and die of old age, reclaim those islands when they're clear.

    We're going to be growing Hemp as a major source of material. With a 90 day grow cycle, not to mention Cloning, we can have 20 plants from one mother within 35 days, then we can have a full crop within 120 days. Since hemp is resilient, it'll even grow into the winter. We'll have 6 foot tall trees of it in no time. So, start with 50 plants, you'll have 250 at the end of the cycle. Continue that.

I'm guessing the terminal people will die pretty quickly, but what about people who only the sniffles, or something more serious? Back in the middle ages, a cold was a death sentence.

    Porn Mountain is an actual mountain, yes? I'm working on terrain right now. Where should it go?

    We have a distiller making Antiseptic and alcohol, we have nurses, EMT's, Chemists, Herbalists, and other people of that nature working on remedies. We also have Survivalists with herb and remedy knowledge.

    Assuming we all arrived at different places I was thinking as soon as I get there to start trekking to the closest mountains.

    Yes but islands like that might have multiple mountains. I don't wanna put ten years into building a monastery and realize there is another one across the island...

    ...Or that might be an awesome thing.

    The plan was to keep going until I found the (or a) porn mountain.

    Boy, you guys are going to love me when I come to the island with a bag of dildos and lube.

    Did you mean "guys" just in the general meaning, like "multitude of people" or just "guys"?

    Yes. We will love you in a most literal sense.

    And now dare I ask why would you bring dildos and lubes? And why do you think they'd be useful? And don't worry, at least one person here won't "love" you in that way.

    Just wait. All of the females wanting pleasure but no strings and the desperate males will come to me for an hour with these. And this service I will provide in trade. Cleaning them afterward, of course.
    I won't be a god, but I will be "well off".

    Please clarify this. Do you mean men will come to you for the using of dildos? Or that the women who used dildos previously, will be paying for it by being with a man?

    Women will get free sex, with no pregnancy, with no strings attached, Men, will get a show. For a price of course.

    Ok, if you had answered yes to any of my previous questions, I would've stabbed you in the eye the first second I noticed you. This is morally appropriate. Though I don't think you'll have that many female users. If somehow you did, you'd have to get security, to make sure none of the men get too aroused and start having forceful sex with any of the women on stage. But how will you pay security? And I'm pretty sure that the women actually saying "yes" to that idea will want something more as compensation. I suggest bringing along a lot of feminine-oriented products, ranging from simple cosmetics, clothing, and such. And just one other question: where do you get the dildos and lubes?
    >> Anonymous 12/22/10(Wed)21:48 No.13258265
    That is for me to know. I also make toys.

    However, I do believe I know how to use a gun, and quite well. People will think twice before getting "Forceful"

    Must I point out the obvious? You will eventually run out of ammo or even more probable, they will rush you and you can't shoot that fast enough to kill a horde of ten to twenty [possibly more] horny, aggressive men who will probably disarm you, beat you severely, possibly to the point of dying, and then rape you [regardless of what your gender might be]? And you still gotta sleep sometimes.

    Oh! So, we have been having these threads for a bit.. who has found their transportation-to-island/disaster planning sub-par?

    remember, if you can think about how to deal with this, you can think about survival in anything.

    Nope, I'm just intelligent enough to deal with problems before they arise, and avoid them when necessary. I'm not worried about you, or anyone else on the island.

    You can't plan for what you can't anticipate, you can't plan for every possible situation, and you can't rely on your "insurance" always saving you. You are not Batman, and you are not indestructible.

    >6 people talking about their raep fantasy.

    Nothing like a hypothetical situation to show what percentage of /tg/ is fucking aspies. I'm going to Porn Mountain.

    Women will rule this hypothetical land. By all statistics, the men around here won't touch a woman ever again.
