Default Your survivalist 'Colony'.

We've done similar threads. Not of this scale, I do not believe. This may require some extra thinking.

The scenario is that the SHTF and you have just enough time to gather no fewer than 12 members and no more than 15 (SM's and non-SM's) and at least 2 of them have to be female. Everyone is single, no boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife; sadly we are all childless for this exercise. The task is to assemble a team that can be self sufficient and productive. The long goal is to give the human race a chance against all adverse conditions and possible zombie and renegade attacks. The "Colony" has to be able to survive for generations. Take what you know of ALL forum members and what they can bring to the "Colony" so your "Colony" has the best chance of survival. Keep in mind that you not only need mechanical aptitude and intelligence, but you need real world practical experience as well. List out your members and the reason why you think they will be a productive and useful member of your "Colony". Also, keep in mind that the group should be able to get along without fighting with each other so much that it becomes counter-productive.

If you are not selected by anyone's "Colony", it is possible that you are not known very well, so you may state your case in the hopes that you will be selected for someone's "Colony".

I encourage all members to take part. In other words, even if you have 10 posts, you can amass your "Colony" for your reasons. If you think that the forum has no clue as to your assets for a "Colony", state your case.

12 people seems like a big group. I would want to go smaller if the SHTF for real. Interesting concept!

OK:

IGETEVEN - got to have somebody with Jack's background
Canebrake - we'd have some Colt's on hand, old fart wisdom as well
stalkingbear - mandatory to have a redneck specialist (like to have 2 bear's)
SGT Miller - just because the Air Force has to be worth something
C3shooter - reminds me of the professor on Gilligans island
TXnorton - posts in rifles and I know squat about rifles, shoots black powder also
Cpttango30 - anger, harnessed, is a good resource
Skullcrusher - outdoorsman
Jess - level headed (female 1)
Hydrashok - brings his gun store along
Puff - need a newbie (female 2), shoots tracers off the back porch
JD - master planner
Benning Boy - all around knowledge
Ineffable - the groups sage and scribe

What is the geographic environment?

Political - world sit rep?

Assets? I take it we're still armed?

How many females are current members, and are any of them level 4 mage/healers?

The thought is an area that can sustain life, with some work. Arms are not a problem-they have not been destroyed and can be had.

We have several female members both supporters and non.

The 12 person minimal group is so you would have to think about it, and if repopulation was needed....6 just asks for genetic issues.

A reason of "just because" tells me that you have not thought about it nor have you learned about other member's abilities in areas other than guns; plenty of info is out there about members here. Backgrounds and professions should be taken into consideration, me thinks.

While I don't know if any of the ladies here have "healing" abilities, one would think that persons with medical training would be an asset.

That, Ineff is somewhat well thought out, but not your best. I think you can do better, or I have underestimated your abilities. What about the possibility of rebuilding of large equipment? Who's gonna run the garden or tend livestock? Engineering work? Does your "Colony" have the ability to converse with other "Colonies" or stray persons who do not speak your language? It may not come down to 10 clicks in any direction, it may come to those who can be the BEST asset to replentishing the human race with the best hope of the future.

Still, Ineff has set the stage and amassed the best "Colony" to start. I would be proud and optimistic as a member of Ineff's "Colony". I think we would survive with a good hope of the human race.

C'mon...I belted it out in like 5 minutes.... If I actually have to think, I'm going to charge you a usage fee.

Honestly, this would still be my group even if I actually thought it out. I'd just have better reasons for most of them... except for Robo
