Add a new rule, “Hunger”:

Each Castaway has a Hunger, tracked in the GNDT as “Hunger”. As a weekly communal action, any Castaway may increase the Hunger of all Castaways by 2. When a Castaway unidles or joins and has not been active during this Dynasty, their Hunger is set to the median of all other Castaways. When a Castaway unidles and has been active during this Dynasty, their Hunger is set to be equal to the highest Hunger of all other Castaways.

To that, add a subrule, “The Hunt”:

If they have not done so in the last 72 hours, a Castaway may try to arrange a hunt of a Wild Gaudy Pig (Sus Splendidus), native to the island. To do so, they make a post to the blog that unambiguously indicates that they are going hunting. If a different Castaway makes a comment on that post that unambiguously indicates that they will assist in the hunt within 24 hours, the first Castaway to make this comment has successfully hunted. Upon doing so, the commenting Castaway may decrease, by 1 to a minimum of 0, the Hunger of each of a subset of Castaways of their choosing.

Set all Castaways’ Hunger to 1.

I like hunger as a concept. The more it increases, the better.

The Hunt is a little confusing. It’s sort of a teamup strategy, if you can arrange an IRL time together? imperial

Because starting a hunt without a friend would be like casting swine before pearls, amiright?

Indeed, we can’t have Wild Gaudy Swine before Wild Gaudy Pearls!
