This is the tribe thread for the BRAHMAN Tribe. As of the start of the game, the only characters authorized to be here are:

  • Claire Monaghan (Laurels)
  • Owen Kay (Pippin)
  • Alice Gilman (dmboogie)
  • Jake Mordetsky (Aura Master Fox)
  • Rutherford "R.J." Roger (Un-Persona)
This thread is for day-to-day tasks and talks ONLY. If it's meant to be secret, it doesn't belong here.

You approach the island shown on the map, and R.J. is first to spot the site. The sandy beach currently has a orange tribe flag. In a weighted bag underneath the flag are your camp supplies: two machetes, five canteens, a water jug, a bag of rice, a first-aid kit, and a map that leads you to a source of water (needs to be boiled) and a mud pit.

The forest behind the flag is composed of deciduous trees. In the forest, there are a variety of animals to eat if one were so inclined: there are Andaman wild boar, monitor lizards, turtles, deer, and various rodents. Also there are jackfruit, various tubers, and oomin seeds. Beehives are a source of honey for the particularly adventurous/foolhardy.

There are fish and edible shellfish to find in the ocean, although that might take some work to collect. It is currently 1100 local time. Start making camp, and welcome to Survivor, Brahman.

Claire walked along the beach with her tribemates after disembarking from the boat. It was weird to think the game had actually started, but here she was, heading towards the campsite R.J. had spotted.

She looked at the minimal surroundings. She had watched several seasons in the past and knew the tribe had to build their camp from scratch, starting with a fire, then shelter, then water.

"So guys, I think we need to talk about how we're going to make camp here," she said aloud. "Does anyone know how to start a fire? I read that you can use the reflection of sunlight off glasses to start a fire."

Claire took her glasses off. She then looked at her tribemates.

"Come to think of it, we've got three pairs of glasses to start a fire. But, I'm not blind without my glasses, so I'd be willing to work on the fire."

"So, who wants to work on the shelter and who wants to find water?"

Owen stepped off the boat and onto the beach, trying as hard as he could to keep the stupid grin from his face. It was hard not to, though. He was actually here, on Survivor. It was surreal, to say the least. Back in England, hed always rued the fact that the British version of Survivor had bombed, and that there had been no plans for a British version of The Amazing Race. They had both been guilty pleasures of his, and thered always been an idle dream to someday appear on one of them. And now, here he actually was.

Everything on his tribes island looked oddly beautiful; even the tribe flag, somehow. Maybe, somehow, the natural beauty of the island seeped into anything that touched it. Maybe. Unlikely, but maybe. Stranger things had happened.

Owen was broken out of his stupor of admiring the island by Claire starting up a speech about how they were going to make camp. She mentioned using her glasses to start the fire, and Owen frowned a little at that. He had read somewhere that, because the lenses of most glasses were curved in a certain way, that trick didnt actually work.

You can try it. Owen said, thoughtfully. I read somewhere that that isnt a wholly reliable trick, but its the best weve got right now, so go for it! And yeah, best if I stay away from the fire making. Without my glasses, Im likely to pull a Skupin and fall in.

Owen looked over the rest of his tribemates. They were not the most athletic bunch, he had to say. Of course, strength and athleticism didnt count as much as most people thought on Survivor, but still, it would be nice for the general work around camp and in physical challenges. Right now, R.J. looked like the strongest person here, next to him.

Ill work on the shelter! Owen said, enthusiastically, before looking over at R.J. Hey, R.J, you wanna help out?

Alice walked with the rest of her new tribe-mates along the beach, lost in thought. She'd never been out of the states in her life, and now here she was, on a mostly-deserted island miles and miles away from home, on national television. It was the sort of thing that could drive one to mild panic, given enough thought.

Reality TV was never really Alice's thing, but really, who would pass the opportunity to be on one? It was a once in a lifetime experience, at least for most people. There were always those lucky(?) few who managed to be successful enough to spin a career from their exploits.

Alice'd also heard quite a bit about the manipulative editing that went on behind the scenes. They wouldn't try and make her into a villain, would they? Being the target of a nation(or at least the tv-watching portion thereof)'s dislike would be rather... disheartening. Maybe she should smile more. She paused and looked into the water for a second, trying a hearty grin on for size. She gave up almost immediately upon seeing her reflection. That had been more of a terrible rictus than anything else.

Alice examined her surroundings as the tribe arrived at their camp. She frowned a bit as she looked at their orange flag. Orange was not a good color at all. Blue would've been nice. Oh well, there were more important things to worry about, such as setting up camp. Claire mentioned that it was possible to start a fire using one's glasses. Alice definitely thought that fact suspect. There was no way she was taking her glasses off, anyway. Too much risk of breakage, and subsequent nigh-blindness.

How was a fire supposed to be made, though? Argh, she knew this! It was at the tip of her mind! Maybe a walk'd clear her thoughts a bit. "Water. Er, I'll get some." Alice volunteered, picking up the jug and map. It'd be good to learn the layout of the surrounding area, at least.

She turned to leave. "If I'm not back in an overly-long period of time, send someone to make sure I didn't break my leg or anything, I guess." The water source was a good distance away from the camp, but it shouldn't be too much of a problem. Hopefully. Maybe the fire problem would be fixed by the time she was back.

Last to be picked, first to spot that ugly orange flag. Just his style. Rutherford looked over the equipment. He felt the very top of the machete blade, wondering what he could hunt while here. Those boars seemed kind of scary, and he didn't think the rice and lizards would be very filling. Thus he deemed fish as the choice for tonight's dinner in his head. It was only 11:00 am, but Claire had already began to talk about starting a fire with glasses. She also said they had about 3 pairs of glasses.

"Y'know, just cause I don't wear 'em all the time, doesn't mean my glasses are completely useless." He said with a tiny chuckle at the end of his sentence. He took the pair of spectacles hung around his shirt and placed them on the first-aid kit for future pyro-related reasons.

"Water. Er, I'll get some." said the red-headed girl named Alice. She dashed off with the map and the jug, jokingly (he presumed) asking the group if someone would get her in case she got injured.

"Can do." Ruth said with a playful salute.

"I'll work on the shelter! Hey, R.J, you wanna help out?" said a much larger boy with a charming English accent. He looked around at his other teammates and realized he wasn't the skinniest person in the area.

"Oh, yeah, I'll do whatever you guys need me to do. So while Alice is getting water, and we build the shelter, you guys will work on the fire right? Sounds good to me."

He looked back at Owen and spoke.

"I haven't really watched this show much, but I've gone camping before, so I'll try to help as much as I can." He grabbed a machete and spoke again. "So are we just gonna cut down the branches and leaves or somethin'?"

Claire was surprised to hear that the glasses thing might not work. Then again, she was just basing it on a book she read. But, they needed fire, and no one else had any ideas on how to start a fire, so she might as well try it. Well, she better get started. Owen and R.J. were gonna start the shelter, and Alice was going to get water.

What's Jake doing anyways? Ah, nevermind. Better get started. Okay, kindling. What the fuck is there to use?

Claire made her way to the nearby wooded area. She saw a few twigs and sticks on the ground and began to pick them up.

There was some weird, stringy stuff you were supposed to burn, right? What is that shit called?

"Eh, better start with this stuff," she muttered to herself.

Claire moved out into the open beach. She began to dig a hole in the ground and placed the sticks in the ground. She then kneeled on the sand.

"Okay, here we go."

Claire removed her glasses and held them up. She soon found where the sun was positioned and adjusted the glasses to reflect the light. She watched as a small dot appeared on the logs. She knew it would have to start smoking before any fire would emerge.

And the waiting begins.

It was less than ten minutes since theyd found their camp, and all the members of the Brahman Tribe, as they were going to be known as, had already decided on their tasks and jobs around camp. Owen smiled at this. This was definitely a good start. Strategy and plotting against each other could come later, after all the physical work was done. Even though they didnt appear to be the most physically fit team overall, they were working as a cohesive unit.

Well, except for Jake at the moment. I guess hell do something to help out around camp. Maybe hell go help Claire with the fire or something? Or maybe hell go help Alice, maybe make sure she doesnt actually get lost or break anything. Ooh, or, maybe go and get food from somewhere? Thatll be useful for sure.

Like R.J, Owen presumed she was joking, but then again, he knew Alice wasnt exactly a fitness fanatic. Hopefully there would be more mental challenges than physical this time around. Owen felt confident in his own abilities at the physical challenges, but he knew that his stamina, or lack of, was always a problem, and as hed thought earlier, the rest of the tribe didnt seem incredibly physically fit overall.

For the second time that day, Owen was broken out of his thoughts when R.J. asked him what the basic plan for the shelter was. Owen nodded at his suggestion.

Yeah, I think thats the basic idea. Well, that and look for any fallen logs or anything like that. Itd be nice if wed been given a cave or something, but, uh we havent. So I guess well have to deal with what weve been given, huh? I mean, were not aiming for the Taj Mahal or anything here. Just somewhere to keep us dry.

Owen grabbed a machete, and gestured towards the treeline just behind the tribe flag. We could use the trees as part of the shelter formation, make things easier on us. Owen suggested.

Jake was pretty nervous. Everyone else had already divides up the tasks, and he was the only one not doing anything. If he hadn't been too shy to speak up, then he would probably be doing something useful. If he didn't start working fast, the rest of the tribe would see him as useless or lazy, and they would vote him off first. The only problem was that everyone else was already doing most of the work around camp. R.J. and Owen were making the shelter, Claire was making the fire, and Alcie went to get water. He didn't really know what he could do to be producti-

Food!

Jake suddenly realized that no one else on the tribe was looking for food. They needed food if they were going to survive, right? He had actually figred out a way to be useful around camp! He walked towards the forest and called out to his tribemates, trying to make his meek voice as loud as possible.

"Um... I'm going to look for food. I mean, if that's okay with everyone."

Day 3...

[I.C.]

"Hey guys, we have treemail! And it's immunity!"

"With Immunity on the line
You'll compete in this Boulder Run
For one unlucky contestant
This game will end the fun."


[OOC]

This immunity challenge will be based off of strength, constitution, and for two other contestants dexterity and intelligence as well. All I need from each tribe is who will be competitors in the latter category. Make sure to send them to me or announce it in the tribe threads once you decide, by 6pm Monday EDT at the very latest.

Any questions, make sure to PM me.

Claire continued to stare at the fire pit. It was hot today, and she was sure she was spending too long in the sun. However, she knew she needed the fire to start. This was her task, and if she failed, the others might vote her out.

Come on, you son of a bitch. BURN!

That's when she noticed the smoke. Her eyes widened. It was actually working. She waited, and then, saw a small light. Fire! She had fire!

Holy shit! I gotta keep it going!

Claire rushed into the woods and began to gather any small plant life she could find. She rushed back to the pile and began to feed the small flames.

"Okay, okay, I've got to keep this going."

Claire began to blow on it some more, and soon, more of the leaves and other small twigs began to catch fire.

"Woo!" Claire cheered. "We've got fire! Let's have some water to celebrate!"

She did a small jump and cheer. She actually did it. It took a while, but she did it.



A few days later, Claire volunteered to check out the treemail. When she arrived, she found a message in the small box and took it back to the camp.

"Hey guys, we have treemail! And it's immunity!"

Claire then read the message out loud.

"Yikes, we're doing some Indiana Jones shit today. So, who's ready?"

((WRITER"S BLOCK: BE GONE))

While Ruth wasn't completely sure he understood the plan, but he did have the basic idea. Cut off the branches, lean them against the tree line, then put the leaves on top to make a roof. Seemed simple.

"Allrighty then, let's get to work.

--------

"AAAHGAWDDAMMITMOTHERFUCKER!!!" said Ruth as he dropped a particularly heavy log on top of his big toe. It hurt a lot, but only for a few quick seconds. He blew wind at it, and waved at it, in an attempt to make the pain go away quicker. He then picked up the very same log, and went straight back to work. It was tiring, hard, but fulfilling work. He was pretty sure Owen had done most of the work anyway, and he wish he could have done more to help, but he was just happy to have a roof over his head tonight. A willowy soft roof.

"We've got fire! Let's have some water to celebrate!"

Just as soon as Ruth had gotten under the shade, his old friend Claire had to make him come out of it to see all the hubbub. Ah, well, water sounded nice anyway.

--------
[DAY 3]

"Hey guys, we have treemail! And it's immunity!"

Another day of hard work awaited him, so Ruth just wanted to relax and watch the sea and draw it for a bit. Claire had a way of ruining his peace on this island.

"Yikes, we're doing some Indiana Jones shit today. So, who's ready?"

Ruth was no film nut like his friend, but even most people still who knew who Indiana Jones is. The boulder scene, like most he presumed, was the one that stuck in his mind the most. This didn't sound like it was going to be particularly easy.

"I'm ready for anything right now, the challenges are probably the reason most people watch this show anyway."

Claire slowly walked back into camp and sat down next to the fire. Now that they lost the Immunity Challenge, they needed to keep the fire going at all costs. They didn't have any flint, and they needed to make sure they could have a pair of glasses around to start it again.

"I'm gonna get some firewood," Claire announced to whoever was listening. "Anyone who wants to come can join me."

Claire grabbed a canteen of water and began to move into the woods. She began to pick up any sticks she could find. She tried to think about what would happen at Tribal Council. As she knew in this game, pre-merge voting decrees that you vote out individuals who are least helpful to the tribe. When the merge came, it was more strategic.

Whoever does get voted out is gonna be replaced by Cassidy. Who can we afford to lose?
