  • I was adrift at sea for 2 years with my family, but lets just say they didn't feel like surviving, because I ate them.

When I finally made it to the island I was greeted by a short frenchman who went by the name Napoleon, he really seemed to want to conquer Europe, interesting guy. Well I made it on the island and there were a lot of friendly locals who fed me food and I didn't really want to stay so I killed a couple of people and embarked on my raft once more.
  • Very beautiful park. It's one of my favorite parks. It's really an excellent park of the country.
