The ratio of people to cake is too big.
Excuse me, I believe you have my stapler...
The rules just say "move the chieftan using a maxiumum of two feet", does this apply to going to the small islands and / or fishing? (not sure how it would be possible when fishing)
Fishing, the Docks, and the Player Sequence Track are all actions that occur on the beach. Moving your cheiftain to the beach is free. So even with pele, free is less than the "maximum of two feet".
Using the fishing cove, or the visiting the islands from the docks, are costs that paid in feet, but don't involve moving the cheiftain. So pele provides no discount towards those actions.
