You are going to lock yourself in an underground bunker along with five other people to wait out the apocalypse. By pure luck--good or bad, I won't say--they all happen to be CYStians.

You're allowed to choose in advance who will be assigned to your Vault. Who are you bringing with you and why? Keeping in mind that you'll need to live with them in close quarters for several years and then at some point reemerge to try and survive in wasteland together.

If you wish you may also detail who you are definitely NOT bringing and why.

Let it be said that Mizal forced me into posting by sticking a loaded gun to my head convinced me to post here.

Now obviously I bring along my best bro Tim because he's my best bro.

Next I'll bring along Sent, because he can keep us all entertained with stories about the war or whatever he goes on about. And also because I think he might bring along a can labeled "octopus?", never hurts to have more... Food I think?

For my third pick, I'll bring along End, because when we inevitably leave the bunker we have to have someone who can make the hard decisions like killing a puppy for food.

For my fourth pick, I'll bring along Wibn, because he does farming and maybe he can make us some food with those farming skillz.

For my fifth and final pick, I dunno, Corgi. We need a team pet.

People to bring:

1. IAP, I'm pretty sure he and I have the best survival chances in the post-apocalypse due to our "able to build shit" skills. Plus, I don't know much about cars and mechanics, so he wwould cover that set of knowedge.

2. Mizal, along with the "lives in Texas" skill, we need a leader. Since EM would kill someone for the lulz, Mizal is the only one with the "leader" skill. Plus, she's Mizal for Pete's sake. She and IAP were the only two who seem to be must-haves in this situation.

3. Cricket, we get along, she (Mizal and #4) are also fellow crusaders, aamd I think she has some skills dddue to being in North Dakota. At the very least, she has the "knows how to live in cold weather" skill.

4. Corgi, he can make sandwitches.

5. Nehal, she's smart and stuff. Plus, she likes my fanfiction. Lastly, she has the "immune to food poisoning" skill due to living in India.

Lastly, I get along quite well with all of these folks.

People not to take:
Pretty much everyone else. Sabley, Steve, AYT, and Ghost would all be contenders for being chosen, but there's drawbacks to all of them. Sabley's chickens die too much, Steve is Steve (only useful if the apocolapse requires boats), AYT has leg problems, and Ghost would kill herself due to being retarded (like getting her foot in a bear trap but sawing off the wrong leg to get out).

Steve hasn't logged in in over a month, he's officially dead. He can be no further use in an apocalypse scenario unless his body happens to have been stored in a freezer. (And doesn't contain so many drugs that it's unsafe for consumption.)

Lol, don't forget about all his STDs.

Let’s see in alphabetical order:

Cricket
IAP
Mizal
Sabley
Wibbons

4 of them seem like they would have useful skills inside and out of the bunker. Cricket, I’m obviously taking so I know I’ll at least have one person on my side if all else fails.

Now Mizal said she probably couldn’t be in a bunker with Cricket, so if she’s rather die in a nuclear fire instead, I guess I’ll take Briar rather than Mizal.

Yes, it is very sad that I’m not taking OG Thara, but there’s not enough room and Cricket gets along with all of the above people so other than there potentially being friction with Mizal (assuming she comes), Cricket is a lot less likely to be lynched immediately by the others.

I'm chosen again, yay! This is a good list too. SURVIVORS!

Poll: Vault CYS

Mizal, because having someone that's familiar with multiple forms of food prep can keep everyone else alive. We've talked about canning, and freezing food. I also wouldn't at all be surprised if you were familiar with several ways to jerk meat or how to make pemmican. I'm also half convinced that most of the CYSers have burned water, and I've also seen the food shots you post on the discord server, and they all look delicious.

EndMaster, because he seems socially flexible. I've seen him change how he conducts himself around various servers and forums. Having someone around who can carry on a conversation and maintain eye contact, and who is more or less on my side would be handy. Most CYSers seem to be hermits of some sort. After we leave the vault, having a face is a must if we don't come out into a friendly or open society.

IAP. I don't know if we're going to come out into civilization or how much of the population is going to have survived. Having someone for the post apocalyptic world that knows how to kill, clean, and skin an animal could potentially be life saving. He also knows other ways to survive in the wilderness because that's where the man lives.

Chan-bot. Yeah, he's abrasive, but he's still a fair engineer. Being stuck in a vault for years is going to suck no matter who you're in there with, and having someone that can produce solutions to various mechanical, or electrical problems can make the vault more survivable. He would also be able to produce those same solutions with whatever happened to still be around afterwards. I'm not saying it would be easy to convince him to make those solutions if he didn't feel like it, but he would be capable of it.

The fifth person is a bit iffy. I don't know of any CYSers that have a medical background. Modern agriculture wouldn't be able to be maintained in a post apocalyptic setting, so a gardener would be just as handy as a farmer. Most of the people I've chosen so far are a little bit older so I might just pick someone younger who could handle manual labor and not be broken by it. Wibn, Cricket or AYT maybe? Not certain who I would choose if I had time to talk to a few more people about it, but right now I would probabaly choose Wibn, because I know he'd get the job done and complain the least about it.

Yeeeaaaah I don't think I want to be the only woman in this bunker. You guys can have Vain instead. Or Malk. Also, just a note, IAP hates Ford. I don't believe both will be surviving and it's just a matter of who makes the first move. Luckily, they have a similar skill set as far as machinery goes, and both can hunt, so we'll not be set too far back regardless of who wins.

Hmm...This is difficult.

I would take:

1. EndMaster. Because of obvious reasons. Also, because End’s got logic and some insight into apocalyptic settings.
2. Mizal. She also has a good logical sense as well as being pretty conversational, so we would never get bored in the bunker. Both End and Mizal’s logistical traits would help a lot with rationing food or interacting with the outside if need be.
3. IAP. IAP is pretty much a rugged mountain man who can lift a bunch of things, make a bunch of things, etc. 
4. Cricket. Because Cricket is just Cricket.
5. WIBN. He has a funny sense of humor, I guess, and he’s the #2 chicken person.

And I'm chosen again. Yipee!

Poll: Vault CYS

one month ago

First off I'll bring EndMaster. He would make sure nobody else decides to eat me--probably, would be good company, would be great after we leave the bunker on account of having grown up in a post-apocalyptic environment himself. Plus has the +2 wisdom bonus for being over forty.

Now, I am obligated to bring Nehal and Corgi thanks to something said on the Discord without the knowledge this would actually happen. They, uh, they would be cool to hang around? I don't really know what skills they have. Corgi could do the landscaping and Nehal probably knows enough about hand looms to make clothes when the time comes? That unviolence princiole could become an issue later on though. And Corgi would probably chop his fingers off if he wasn't supervised at all times. Oh geez....

Next I would bring Mizal. With End around to keep her from eating me, things would probably be fine. We'd probably get along better IRL anyway, on account of me talking far, far less. Actually, wait. She's going to constantly complain about not having enough hot sauce or fresh vegetables or some shit like that, even though there is limited hot sauce and zero fresh vegetables in the bunker--just like North Dakota. Ugh, she can still come because blah blah she'll survive anyway and kill me later if she doesn't blah, and she can play mom to the others.

At this point, am I to be forgiven if I don't bring Wibbons? No, probably not. I guess he can come. Might end up being more useful than most of us here if he doesn't use his newfound freedom to slack off and doesn't complain about his now near certainty of dying single. At least if End ever gives him something, he can pretend it was his trophy.

Not bringing Digit because he probably started this in the first place.
IAP is out because, frankly, I don't think he would APPRECIATE my bunker and would probably go on about how great it would be the sleep outside under the no longer visible stars at night, bash zombies/raiders/furry heads in in tje morning, and swim in the irradiated pools in the afternoon. No, sir. I am NOT living with that.
Ghost would kill herself by drinking the contents of an aerosol can of window cleaner in an attempt to get high or just see what happens.
Sentinel has his own faction of furry homies that can have fun together, and we have no room for his girlfriend.
Ford would likely be shanked before he could do anything useful.
Sabley will probably be fine with her husband wherever they go, and she's a scary woman mean girl.
Anyone with kids isn't coming pretty much, because they can go find their own arrangements and be happy rather than be that one guy who dies a tragic death just before being reunited with his family for emotional impact.
Coins is a filthy commie.
I don't know who this STEVE some of you have mentioned is.
Tim and Chris will have cool adventures together and don't need me.
Everyone else is probably some sort of gay homo faggot and not worth bringing up anyway, or they are a kid.

Commended by mizal on 6/13/2019 4:23:32 PM

Alright, some of you guys think you know who to bring on your bunker adventure, but trust me, I am an expert at survival and living in small areas with too many people for years. Now, some of these choices are based on personal preference, so please, if you know someone equal in power and skills, feel free to substitute. Anyway, onto the list:

 

1. Chris. Now I know what you're thinking, "haha of course you'd choose him you're bffs do it for the Tim n Chris meme lol". Yes. But also, Chris is, like, a BIG guy. Like I think he might be bigger than me by a bit. Combined with his deep and manly voice, I feel very intimidated. And that's EXACTLY how the other wastelanders are gonna feel when they get a load of this guy. Chris has also beaten people stronger than him in a fight, so he definitely is a good choice for the big tough guy in our wasteland party. He is also experienced in living the nomadic spartan life, so the bunker phase and transition should be a breeze.

 

2. Mizal. Now I know what you're thinking, "Tim why are you even about to explain Mizal, everyone knows she's a top-tier choice". Stop interrupting my train of thought. Mizal has definitely hunted animals before, as evident of her tales of snake-beheading and also how boars are kinda hard to kill, naturally making her the hunter-gatherer Walker Texas Ranger of the group. She has also clearly handled a gun before, making her a definite spot on the Wasteland group, above me and Chris combat-wise because no doubt she could probably beat both of us into the dirt, but below both of us diplomatically, as she clearly has no desire to ever deal with people and probably hates having to deal with the group regularly. Lastly, judging by how the Discord Scullery was literally created by her, to show off food that she made, she's more than likely a pretty amazing cook. It's not a gender thing because she's a woman and women are good cooks or something. It's a Texas thing. She is from rural Texas. And rural Texas is pretty much already a wasteland.

 

3. Mayana. Now I know what you're thinking, "Tim, Maya is literally blind, how can she be of any help, are you just choosing people you like at this point and adding BS answers in post". No, let me finish. Sure, Maya may be blind. But here's something you probably didn't think about: It's pretty dark underground. Especially at nighttime, where the solar panels no longer work and we actually have to conserve electricity. Maya can work effectively in both scenarios. After the first week or two, she'll probably know the bunker better than the rest of us. Another thing you probably didn't think of, but Maya is on a completely different sleep schedule from the rest of us. So, while we're sleeping in the bunker, she'll be wide awake, continuing work during the night shift. Ironically, she'll also be able to hear if there's any bandits outside breaking in while we slumber, making her a perfect lookout. But her real task, her unique objective, will be to chronicle our lives. She'll record the events of the day in writing, and she can even do it in languages other than English, just in case the Russians decide to invade and find it in their looting.

 

4. IAP. Now I know what you're thinking, "Tim, IAP is one of the most obvious choices, how is he 4th on the list?". What did I just say in Mizal's explanation cut it out and leave me alone. Anyway, yes, IAP definitely has the construction skills and general life experience over everyone here, making him a vital figure in the Wasteland phase, but I think everyone is overlooking some pretty harsh downsides. First of all, he is pretty old. This comes with all the Old Guy downsides, like his withering old man body hurting in key areas and sometimes just not working right for no reason, taking old man naps all the time, and always going on old man rants about how his cable company always tried to screw him back before the apocalypse. And if he gets sick with his weak Old Man Immune System, which he likely will because getting sick is practically part of growing old, that's a pretty large medicine investment to cure him, and if that fails I might as well have started out with 4 people, because he's gonezo. That being said, he also comes equipped with the Old Man upsides, like old man level-headedness making him a strong mediator, old man strength from his constructive hobbies, and old man stories from back when coffee only cost a dollar. All in all, a very neutral, balanced choice.

 

5. Sent. Now I know what you're thinking, "duh duh duh sent is a bad choice duh duh duh". That's you. That's what your thoughts are like. Anyway, a controversial choice, yes. Sent himself even says that he'd be the worst choice in a world-ending scenario. But if I know Sent, a I know that he is really good at two things: Organizing stuff, and getting everyone to agree with what he says. Two of the most vital skills in an apocalypse setting. He is a very humble person, and was a extremely worthy candidate for CYS presidency. Had my ambition been weaker, I would have gladly accepted a position as his VP. So while he may be average during the Bunker Phase and pretty much useless during the Wasteland Phase, it's the Rebuild Phase where he really steals the show. He has the ability to rally the people under one group. His planning and strategy is among the highest levels. I think he'd actually be a worthy community leader, directing who does what and planning our next moves. As a bonus, he's from Wisconsin. And what's the one thing people from Wisconsin know best? Cheese. So not only will he be a pretty okay assistant to Mizal in the kitchen, he will both figuratively and literally cheese his way to victory.

 

And there's the list. If your list looks nothing like this, with nobody with these skills, I'm sorry, but you're wrong. Some honorable mentions who didn't make the list include:

 

End. While he is possibly better at organizing things than Sent, I fear his Chaotic Neutral nature will shift to a Chaotic Evil one once he realizes he could do much better organizing the enemy raiding parties like Caeser.

 

Sabley. A good choice for farming and breeding livestock. Unfortunately, she tends to get very attached to her chickens, naming them even, and after she's done crying over her lost chickens and husband, I feel she'll shift into unhinged territory and play god with her chickens more than she already does.

 

Wibbons. An all-around better farming choice compared to Sabley, with pretty much an unfeeling calculation when it comes time to reap. However, as noted by plenty of members of the site, he tends to say stupid things that he thinks is funny, which can lead to some friction in the group and trouble with trade. Also, he keeps pushing the "Tim only says 'Tim'" agenda, so he can go live in a bombed-out house somewhere dying of dehydration with the other mongoloids.

 

 

And so concludes the Answer Sheet to the Vault CYS Poll. Just remember, if the worst does happen and the apocalypse does occur, nobody from a writing website will be able to save you.

Going off the premise of some strange disease turning people into furries, and those furries going mad and trying to vore all non-furries. There must be a hidden, secret place to escape to. Aha! Im already far ahead. While there are many cool people. These cool people won out for various reasons.

Anyways, my list: miz, cricky, wibn, sent, and End

End: Our dark lord and savior, because that and we need someone who can at last raise us up into undeath should the worst occur. Although killing ourselves then being turned undead might be the best way to go. No food, no water, no bathrooms or anything would be needed.

Mizal: She can kill snakes and if we can setup internet she will have access to an abundance of video games. She could probably keep us all from doing something insanely retarded too. May be able to offer some communication with the furry hordes :D

Cricky: It wouldnt be surviving the apocalypse without Cricket around to shame us when we fall back on our word. Also she can breath hellfire and chirp the word of God upon the furry heathens and other foul survivors. Also she makes a mean stir fry.

Sent: Where would we be without our crippled war hero sitting in the corner with his wheelchair, rambling about past and future glories to himself? Sents indispensable wisdom will surely aid us in the days to come. Also between Miz and Crickets regular cooking skills, Sents knowledge of occult soups and salads will add variety to our days.

The Fifth Survivor: I am sorry to say it, but in a an epic contest of life and death, AYT punched my original last choice, Wibns, in the dick and took his place. She supposedly has indispensable martial arts, musical, and some medical skills. 

Honorable Mention: I was going to pick Wibn for his valauable construction skills and general personality. Fortunately AYT had mercy on Wibns, and finished him off with her cartoon sticker covered pipe before the furries could use him as a human body pillow.

The 1 week to 3 months we all last in here should be interesting.

Uh... it really would depend on whether I could get there before any of the rest of them. Simplest solution at that point would be to simply close and lock the vault door from the inside. It's pretty thick, probably sound proof and so I'd just read a book or something until they went away or died. Although I don't see any chance of Mynoris making it there at all, she hates herself and is fat and crippled and already has a basement to dwell in. Now, if the others made it inside...well, Morgan has previously stated a desire to choke me so a preemptive strike is justified there. Breezy would be easy to take out,e she'd be waiting for the bombs to drop so she could fall to her knees in a dramatic fashion and scream 'NOOOOOO!!!' at the ceiling and I could kill her then. Thara would be the most problematic, my hope is that she'll stand on the sidelines making catty remarks at the others as they die long enough for me to figure out how to deal with her. Maybe an opportunity would present itself or maybe we could arrange some kind of truce. A lot more room in the bunker at that point and plenty of supplies for two people, we could just divvy up the living space and avoid each other if nothing else. KKK I would just walk up to at any point and punch in the throat, she's pretty useless and not capable of much.

As you said, it might be contested. Probably not hit by any WMDs. I can't think of a nuclear power that would hit any part of Africa with anything Nuclear. Most of what I've been able to hear about the majority of Africa is that the nice parts are rife with corruption, nepotism, and the warriors of the local tribes are disciplined enough to not openly start fighting. It might get gassed if someone wanted to move their own population into the area without contest, but I don't see that as likely.

I could see fallout being an issue, but outside of that like you said it's pretty post apocalyptic already.

Depends on who's best for eating. There're only enough supplies for one person and it's gonna be ME.

Not Cricky 'cos not enough nutrition.

Not End 'cos I'd be eviscerated.

Probably a group of unsuspecting newbies that have no place else to go. If I'm feeling lonely I'll keep one around.

But when it's time to exit the bunker, I definitely don't want to be sharing food with anyone. Given it's a wasteland I'm expecting subsistence living to be the way things go till we all eventually cark it. And the natural extension of famine: everyone resorts to cannibalism. So there's a point against staying in a group - you show a bit of weakness and you could end up being dinner. In addition, having to take care of a wounded team member, or Mayana during day time, makes traversing the hellscape much harder than it needs to be. Unless you have a vehicle - which means you need to have lots of gas/petrol - more ground would be covered without a group. All the benefits of safety in numbers etc. are valid if you have a reliable source of food. That's a big if.

Also lol to rebuilding.

Anyways, if anyone wants to bunker down together just let me know beforehand.

Poll: Vault CYS

one month ago
Okay, guess I better do mine. My bunker would be home to Wibbons, Tim & Chris, Corgi, and, uh.... @nocturne. I tossed around ideas for various party builds but ultimately choosing a group for the years in the Vault seemed the most important. Living in close quarters, there'd be no option for anyone to just go their separate ways if things weren't working out. Small annoyances would be magnified and any disagreements could eventually turn messy...and keep in mind we'll have no idea how long we'll be in there. It could be literal decades. Although once the immediate danger of nuclear bombs, giant radioactive scorpions and so on has passed, I don't think survival on the outside will be as difficult as fiction makes it out to be. There's an incredible amount of non perishable food and raw building material out there, and almost everyone it was made for will be dead. (Particularly the whiny and useless people such as all the college kids who rant on Tumblr all day.) So, less people, more stuff, it's win/win. This will be a great time for us. It's the Vault years we need to worry about. Now, to explain my choices. In the Vault: 1.) Wibbons is an incredibly hard worker with a lot of practical skills and construction knowledge, while also being a weak bitch that's easy to order around. He'll do any needed maintenance or renovations around the bunker without complaint, and being trapped for years shouldn't be too much of a morale hit for him considering that both the Vault and the future in the wasteland will be several steps up from his current living situation. Having seen a recent selfie, I have every reason to believe he'd be an excellent meatshield, and would do well on scavenging missions if we just handed him a crowbar and sent him on his way. Now it's true that there's been a bit of past friction between him and Tim, but I don't believe Wibbons would be an asshole to anyone IRL. And if he did, it wouldn't be allowed to go on for too long simply because he'd be ambushed one night by a faceless man who looks a lot like Chris with a pantyhose over his head, beating him with a bar of soap inside a sock. In his down time, he'll write anime fanfic in his room, look at pictures of flowers while crying, and not bother me when I want to be left alone. 2.) Tim is always positive and encouraging and gets along well with most people. He's mentioned he does tons of walking so he must be pretty physically fit, and he has a number of useful survival skills as well as familiarity with guns. His wholesomeness aura will increase morale, he'll adjust well to both life in the bunker and to life outside in the aftermath, what with California already being a post apocalypse in a lot of ways, full of Gayboy Berserkers and usually on fire. I think he'll have a pretty good time overall since his buddy Chris will be there too, they'll hang out together constantly and not bother me when I want to be left alone. 3.) Chris is part of a package deal with Tim. I'm sure he has lots of useful skills for the apocalypse such as... ...hmm. Well, he looks like he's thirty so he might be able to intimidate people on raids, he's used to sharing small spaces with others, and the important thing is he'll keep Tim in a good mood. In fact, he and Tim might want to move in together and share a bed (bunk bed; no homo) which would free up some space in the room they're not using. He loves video games so he'll stay in his room to play them and not bother me when I want to be left alone. 4.) Corgi can be a bit of a hyperactive idiot on the Discord sometimes and may have no worthwhile skills, but he's a hard worker IRL and would probably do fine in the bunker with a bit of direction. He's also admitted to having a lot of social anxiety, so even in a chill low pressure situation like riding out the collapse of civilization with a handful of friends, he'll probably spend a lot of time alone in his room and not bother me when I want to be left alone. 5.) nocturne is just some noob that happened to be online at the time of my posting this. The bunker comes with years of food for six people, so we kill this one immediately and that will stretch all the supplies that much further. (And even moreso if the body is properly preserved.) Their empty room will also provide a bit more space for the rest of us. Maybe we could have Wibbons knock out the wall between that and the extra Tim/Chris room and we can put some exercise equipment in there. 6.) Mizal - yes I'm evaluating myself. I can get along with most people and even enjoy their company but I will definitely spend most of time in my room reading books or writing or lamenting the loss of my Steam library now that I finally have time to start playing the games and whatnot. I know a few things about food handling, preservation and storage, have a few useful crafting skills which haven't completely atrophied yet, and some basic survival skills which I will use if I must, although I hate the outdoors. I'll be happy to do all the cooking and clean up from that, and I'll also bring along several guns, so none of you should bother me when I want to be left alone. Leaving the Vault: Wait...leave the Vault? Now why would I want to do a thing like that? As for those who didn't get picked: 1.) Endmaster. It would be very dangerous to be in an enclosed space with a bored Endmaster. And he'd probably want to bring Katie along and there's just no room. I also figure he'd do just fine out there, and if anything he'd be a threat we eventually have to contend with, having become Immortan Joe and started a death cult or else be coming by the Vault constantly trying to get us to agree to be visited by his "team of salesmen" for "renovations" without mentioning they're the fucking Suicide Squad. 2.) Cricket. WHAT MAD FOOL WOULD BRING A CRICKET WITH THEM INTO AN ENCLOSED SPACE WHERE THEY'LL BE LIVING AND SLEEPING FOR YEARS?? 3.) I adore Sentinel, but like Cricket he is just too damn hyperactive and never sleeps or shuts up. 4.) Digit I assume will be off doing Navy things and not given the option to hang out reading mangas underground while the world burns. (He'll be reading mangas under the ocean instead.) 5.) IAP would go stir crazy in the bunker, he needs to be wild and free among the eagles and bears. HHe'll run off to Canada or Alaska and do just fine in the wilderness on his own. In fact he might decide to do that before the apocalypse and never even notice it happens. Also...well, hate to say it but he's gettin a little up there and so what if he starts going senile at a really bad time. 6.) Sabley at first glance would be super useful with lots of relavant survival and combat skills, but like End she comes with an inconvenient spouse. I don't think she'd handle being cooped up in a bunker well either and can turn into a major grudge-holding bitch at times, for instance if you give her an oil change she didn't want or put tuna in her microwave. She'd be welcome to join any settlement that's built afterwards of course (as long as she doesn't spend too much time painting herself blue and dancing naked in the woods). 7.) I automatically disqualified anyone who would have to cross an ocean to get here. No one is a good or fast enough swimmer to make it here faster than the nukes. Also, you're disqualified if you're crippled in some way. I know that's several of you, but sorry, that's the brutal reality of the wasteland. Truthfully though I'd probably figure out some way to make room for Sentinel or Cricket or even Coins or...well maybe not Ford...if it ever came down to it or they were literally going to like, die in nuclear hellfire if I didn't let them in. We'd (by 'we' I mean, all of you guys) just have to leave the bunker sooner than planned when food or morale starts to bottom out. Which would mean scavenging/raiding for supplies while things are still pretty dangerous out there. If there's one CYS bunker, then I think there's a good chance to be others scattered around though, so anyone who didn't make the cut would have a good chance of being in one of those. This would help rebuilding efforts immensely if we could make contact. And in this strange reality that places such emphasis on the continued survival of people who use CYOA websites, there'd probably be CoG and intfiction bunkers too; I'm confident our average user is tougher than any dozen of them, and so if we hit them early and hard enough we could seize a lot of useful supplies. (Although if we wait for their anxiety meds to run out, chances are good a lot of CoGites will resort to belts and make it easy for us.) Oh, and as a bonus, here's Wibbons getting ready to go beat some mofos with a crowbar and take their stuff:

Well then, I'm glad that my body and living quarters was used for a good cause- to help the rest of you survive. All I ask in return is for me to die a quick, painless death, or for me to taste my first sip of alcohol and then I can finally rest in peace.

Yeah lol we're not waiting for food to run out. The bunker has supplies for six people and that will last much longer if there's only five. This is called thinking ahead. Also I only just now realized your avatar isn't some kind of weird parakeet.

Damn you know, I actually forgot about Endmaster's extensive collection of fancy board games. Those will be invaluable. I think we're going to have to let him in after all and just get in on the ground floor of the authoritarian death cult to come.

Poll: Vault CYS

 Well, the fact that I’m halfway around the world from most of y’all would probably mean that this would likely never happen; but anyway here goes...

Most important part about living in a secluded spot with a group of people for years is not going mentally insane. As for life outside the vault, well as Mizal said, it really wouldn’t be that hard to rebuild so my choices are only going to be based with people who I get along(or like to think that I get along).

1) Undr- I know, I know she’s not been around here, but I really got along with her a lot. Being stuck in a vault for for decades with someone who I can brainstorm my sciency and nerdy stuff with would really help my mental health. Plus she’s Italian and is probably a good cook.

2) Derpussen- We get along well, I think. He’s one of the few people that I’ve chatted with in voice chat, and from what I know he’s a very hard worker. He also has experience in traveling around a lot and living in the country and those skills could come in value. Lastly, I think he has a feel of maturity which could make him a good leader of the group and keep the rest of us in line.’

3)Mayana- I think I get along with her too, since we’ve chatted a lot. Even though she has an obvious physical disadvantage, that could be easily made up with a little bit care from the others. Plus she has a very sharp mind and could be the team strategist and quartermaster who could effectively ration our supplies.

4) Mizal- I think we get along, since she was the first person here who I could properly chat with; and I think we could really be good friends IRL. She comes with the added advantage of being an adult and could kinda become like a motherly figure for our group of children, but well, if she gets annoyed she could easily decide to blow holes in all of us with her shotgun and keep all the supplies for herself, which I hope doesn’t happen so we’ll have to be careful...

 She and cricket would probably not get along, but I think overtime they will; since they don’t have any serious blood feud with each other(yet...)

5) Cricket- She’s pretty fun to be around with, and I like to think we get along; even though she thinks I’m some sort of ‘gay homo faggot’ and always has a general disdain for me. Most of all though, I think she has a very resilient mind and would probably not be one of those who go insane and begin killing everyone else due to long term confinement. She’s also extremely social, and her personality would probably help to reduce boredom, which is important since boredom could lead to a mental breakdown.

6) Me- My personality online and offline is of stark contrast. I like to think of myself as a somewhat social person, but I’m adaptable to wherever I go due to my family moving around a lot, I’ve lived in the country as well as a bustling city and managed to adapt. I’m friendly and most of my irl friends sometimes tell me I’m way to naïve for my own good, so that could be an issue I guess. I’ve done kickboxing for 1 and a half year so I have experience in hand to hand combat. I’ve also had a hobby of shooting for quite a while, so I’m fairly okay with most generic pistols and rifles. As for procurement of a gun in India, my mom always keeps one in the house, since it’s required in her line of work(and she taught me how to use one in the first place). 

Realistically speaking, this is almost impossible, unless any one of y’all are on vacation here on the day of Armageddon. The only person who could be with me is Nehal, since we’re in the same country; and I’ll probably shoot her in the face if she bothers me too much.

Seeing as none of y’all chose me, I’ll probably most likely be alone. 

Oh and honourable mention to Ninja, I’m not really sure about your abilities but you seem cool and calculated so o might replace you with cricket.

Thanks for the afterthought lol. It'd be a shame if something mysteriously happened to Cricket and she didn't make the final cut... More realistically, I'd take Undr's spot since she's already dead. I didn't know you did kickboxing that long. That's cool. I, too, have a combat sport background so the group would be really safe (or easy to strong-arm, provided Maya doesn't stab out our eyes first).

1) IAP because he’s not an idiot.

2) End for entertainment.

Killa because we may need a backup toaster.

And NOT Steve because he would drink all the booze.

Also NOT Ogre because he would kill us with his gas.
