The Merge!

Welcome survivors. I trust everyone enjoyed their stay at the resort. Good. Today is a special day. Drop your buffs.

No! Fluke…your buffs, not….
Wait! Anakin…not your….no. My eyes!
Wait. All of you. Just drop your buffs. Please. …oh, I’m gonna need that pink stuff soon.
Now the reason I’m asking you to drop your buffs is because….No! Wait! Han! …not again.

Several minutes and some heavy clarification later….

Alright. I want each team to get a good look at the other team…because from this day forward they will also be your team mates. You will no longer need your old colored buffs anymore. From now on, as one tribe, your buff color is Red. All of you have made it this far. Now the game goes into high gear. Challenges will no longer determine which team goes to tribal council. Instead, the winner of challenges hence forth will win immunity from the council vote. This means every Friday there will be a vote but the winner of that weeks challenge can not be voted off.

Also from here on out in the game, those voted off will now start to consist of our jury. This jury will be the people who will cast the final vote, when it comes down to the last two people, and who will vote for the winner of the game. More of that when we get to it.

I imagine there will be a bit more competition now. We have a strong core group of players and it may take more than doing well in the challenges to make it to the final two. We may even see some secret alliances starting to pop up…if they haven’t already.

There are two things you must do right away as your new tribe. First, you must all decide on a new name for the tribe, and second, determine where this tribe is going to live for the remainder of the game. Will it be out in the Dune Sea inside a hollowed out sandworm carcass? Or in a cave just down wind of the Bantha Dumping Grounds?

It’s your choice. But you should make them quick.

Tomorrow is a new challenge.

I’ll see everyone tomorrow.

I vote that we move to the cave. They have AC, right?

A logical choice, the cave would be. Still the miss the rotting sandworm carcass I will.

Wait...getting to me the suns must be.

Oh, yeah! plenty of room in the cave, and we got this gaming system with multiplayer Pong on it, and this AC is shivermetimber cold.

One thing, though - the ventilation's not exactly top rate, but it should do considering old Ben's not here anymore.

The entertainment system should make it a bit more home-like. I hope you guys don't mind the lack of air conditioning, though..

I'm throwin down my vote for the cave, an I think we should be called the SuperPimps, ya'll.

Does anyone not want to move to the cave? Did we even win any award challenges that would make the worm-carcass abode we have even remotely desirable? They have a video game system!

As for the new tribe name, I was thinking we should keep it in the Jawa-language style. I suggest either Ayafa, which means Clan, or Kiizci, which means Cave [assuming we move to the cave]. Personally, I prefer Ayafa anyway. From many, one.
