Help select an adventure premise

I need some help selecting an adventure. System doesn't matter -- looking for cool ideas for the best setting.

Fill in the blanks in the following opening:

You and your companions are a group of (1) ______ who have undertaken a long sea voyage. Many days from land, a great storm comes up, and your ship is blown against a reef and capsizes. You are lucky enough to be washed up on a beach, and when the sun rises, you find yourself in a mythical land where you must face the (2) _____ (3) ______ of (4) _______ Island!

Where (1), (2), (3), and (4) are each one of the following: robot, ninja, pirate, dinosaur.

What combo is the best adventure seed, and what would you include?

You and your companions are a group of ROBOTS who have undertaken a long sea voyage. Many days from land, a great storm comes up, and your ship is blown against a reef and capsizes. You are lucky enough to be washed up on a beach, and when the sun rises, you find yourself in a mythical land where you must face the NINJA PIRATES of DINOSAUR Island!

Robot PCs are different and provide a lot of opportunities for hilarity, depending what kind of robots you imagine them to be. Plenty of useless skills too, but maybe the ninja pirates are ewoks and will worship them as gods?

You and your companions are a group of (1) dinosaurs who have undertaken a long sea voyage. Many days from land, a great storm comes up, and your ship is blown against a reef and capsizes. You are lucky enough to be washed up on a beach, and when the sun rises, you find yourself in a mythical land where you must face ninjas & pirates on a (4) robot Island!

P.S: Don't forget the aliens!

^^^Love this, esp if the players don't know they are robots at first.

Though knowing my group, this would be the one that would work:

You, too, have dark text closing your post.
 
Let me second Pirates exploring Dinosaur Island and battling robot ninjas. I'd love every second of that adventure.

I use the quick reply about 99.9% of the time, reborn style; which are all the defaults, afaik.

I know when I have updated my forum, the styles have to be changed or reloaded, and the defaults reset.
