Okay I did a quick search for how exactly a fire was started in Survivor with a pair of glasses.

Quote:
In another season, Yau-man, started his teams fire with a pair of glasses. He held the lens over the coconut husks fibers in direct sunlight to start the fire. After the smaller fire was started, the team added more kindling until the fire was going and added larger pieces of wood to make a campfire to stay warm with.

If I remember correctly, I think it actually take hours of direct sunlight into the lenses for it to start a fire, thus requiring a great deal of patience. I don't know what attribute that would apply to, maybe the ability to stay calm. I'd also imagine the "camp" ability might come into play.

What does everyone else think?

That would make for a new exciting twist on the game of Survivor.

it won't take hours that's for sure as I remember using a magnifying glass (similar to what glasses are) to "burn" my hand. It would take some time, but no more that 45 mins to a half hour to get smoke.

I see. So who's calm and good around camp? That's my guess on the attributes it takes to start a fire. We're running out of time so if someone (or two people) are going to devote points to it, they need to do soon.

Welcome to Tribal Council, Werewolf Tribe. Please come in and place your torches. As you know in this game, fire is life. As long as your torch is lit you're alive in this game. One tribe member will have their torch put out tonight, and be out of the game.

In the event of a tie at this point in the competition, we will hold a revote. TheJackal and CrimsonFox may not vote. You may only vote for one of those two contestants.

Unfortunately J23 was forced to vote for himself because he did not show up to cast a vote. Please send in your second vote privately to me, following the rules above.

The votes are cast again. They again come out in a tie - split evenly between CrimsonFox and The Jackal.

You will have to come to consensus as a tribe, outside of CrimsonFox and Jackal, as to who to eliminate from your tribe. If you are not able to reach consensus, both players will be sent to Exile Island for the day, meaning you will be short two tribe members during the day on Day Two.

You have until 11 a.m. EST to reach a consensus.


Since J23 has not voted, and I have not yet been able to reach him, and everyone voted the same, it was a tie again.

I don't know if 11 a.m. is reasonable for everyone (meaning the four who have to decide), but I don't want this to drag on too long. You will not be able to start working on the Challenge, really, until you know who will be here tomorrow.

If I don't hear from J23 by morning I will have to see about replacing him, but for this vote, this will be the solution.

Wait, what's this?

It seems there's another vote at the bottom of the bowl here. I don't know how I missed that.

The seventh vote, and the first contestant voted out of Survivor: Islands of FOFC is:

CrimsonFox.

CF, the tribe has spoken. Please put out your torch.

DAY TWO CHALLENGE

Welcome to your second challenge. Yesterday we saw these two tribes race to build a boat, row it, complete a puzzle and light a fire. Today's challenge will require a different group of skills. You will need to divide your tribe into pairs. Each pair will face off against a pair from the opposing tribe. The Villagers, you will have to sit one player for this challenge.

Here you can see a sandy beach divided into grids. When the first two pairs face off, at the sound of a whistle you will race across the sand to one portion of the grid. Buried in that section is a bag. Your goal is to find the bag and return it to the rest of your tribe. Of course that is the goal of the other tribe as well. This may, and probably will, be a full contact challenge.

The tribe with the most bags at the end of the challenge wins the challenge. If there is a tie, each team will pick one pair to represent them in a sudden death match for the final bag. In addition they will receive a reward of camp supplies, including a hatchet, waterproof matches, and a collection of foodstuffs. The loser will face Tribal Council this night.

By 4:30 p.m. EST on Tuesday you will need to submit to me, by private message, who you will be paired with. You and your partner will also need to submit your strategy for getting the bag. Your success will depend partially on your pair being on the same page, and of course on how well your strategy works against your opponents. In addition, each tribe will have to agree on a pair to represent them in case of a tie.

For the challenge, in case I don't get this in sooner, I'm average strength, stamina, and find but excellent in Scrappy(which I think may come into play here?). I also have above average teamwork which could be helpful as well.

The bad part is that my health is quite low. I had reduced hp to start with, so the loss from yesterday has left me in bad shape.

Anyway, off to bed, hopefully get some time to contribute tomorrow.

I will not be available much t9day before the deadline, so I would like to be paired up with someone who will be active and able to plan out our strategy.

Okay, I won't be much if at all after 12:30. There is a chance I could pop in before the 4:30 deadline but I wouldn't count on it.

What skills do you guys think are necessary for this challenge?

Strength - To tackle others (and also the bags might be kind of heavy).
Running? - To allude players from the other team
Scrappy - Per Autumn's explanation from post #99,

Quote:
I'll let you guys know, just because I think it may be too vague of a term, that Scrappy in the game refers to physical feistiness, ability to fight for something or fight someone off, for example.


I have excellent strength, average at running, and I'm average at being scrappy.

Also any thoughts on how we should pair people in this challenge (i.e. good with good, good with average, or good with poor)?

I don't think we should pair our strongest with our weakest personally. Not sure between the other two options.

I would guess the following would play into this task

Find - as we have to dig for a bag and find it

Running - once we have the bag

Scrappy - keeping the bag away from others or getting it from others

Stamina - it may take a while don't know

Strength - fighting off someone

Teamwork - gotta help the partner

here are my ratings for them

Find - Good
Running - Avg
Scrappy - Good
Stamina- Excellent
Strength - Poor
Teamwork - Avg

whom ever I'm paired with I should be the one running with the bag and the other person would be my lead blocker to take out the others.

Autumn - when we match up do we need to say we're group #1, 2 & 3 or can we say we want player x & Y to go in against Hoopsguy and whomever his partner is for the challenge?

You just pick your pair. You don't know who you'll get matched up against.

Hey SnDvls, I have excellent strength, so maybe I should pair up with you?

I don't know the find attribute would be very important because whoever finds it will probably be tackled almost immediately.

That's an interesting point. I think my high scrappy skill along with an average find skill would make for a good pairing with someone that could run fast. I could concentrate on getting the bag (whether by finding it or taking it from the other team) and then throwing it to a teammate that could run with it back to our side.

I have pretty much average skills for this task and poor scrappiness, but good calm and teamwork. Maybe if I get paired with a good scrappy person he can fight the other team while I look for the bag.

I don't think we choose if I'm understanding Autumn's post correctly.

Also this is the challenge PM I sent to Autumn:

Quote:
I will pair up with SnDvls in the challenge. He will most likely be the one running with the bag while I will be trying to be his lead blocker. I also wish to give extra effort in this challenge.
