Welcome to Survival of the Fittest, a RPing board loosely based off of Koshun Takami's Battle Royale, with its own unique plot and spin on the 'deadly game'. We've been around quite a while, and are now in our thirteenth year, so don't worry about us going anywhere any time soon!

If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

V7 Game Character Cap

Posted by MK Kilmarnock (SOTF Staff) at Jun 3 2018, 06:00 PM. 0 comments

Hello handlers of SotF,

By a majority staff vote, it has been decided to raise the cap for island submissions from 3 students to 4.

That is all.

Have a nice day!

Student Government/Team and Club Positions

Posted by backslash (SOTF Staff) at May 31 2018, 06:20 PM. 9 comments

Hey everyone! We're now accepting nominations for student government and team/club positions. To handle everything but the class presidency and vice-presidency, the nomination thread where handlers can enter their characters can be found here. The nominations thread will run for two weeks, meaning nominations will be open until June 15th. At the end of this time, any uncontested positions will be awarded. Any contested positions will go to votes, each having its own thread. Voting will not be anonymous. Handlers will be allowed to vote for each position/team in which they have an approved or submitted but not yet approved character participating. You may NOT vote in teams or clubs that you do not have an approved or submitted character participating in.

We will not be allowing characters to hold more than three offices, and will not be allowing characters to be nominated for more than five positions apiece. We ask that you consider carefully what positions your character would realistically hold time and interest to pursue, and that you avoid nominating them simply to fill spaces. You may nominate characters who are already approved, or who are in the submission queue at any point during the nomination time period. However, should an unapproved character win a position and then be withdrawn or time out of the approval process, their title will default to the runner-up if applicable. This is to allow handlers to nominate characters who are still in the drafting stages while discouraging them from doing so if they are not sure they can follow through on the character.

In the event of a tie in voting for any position, that position will be awarded to the character who holds fewer other positions. In the event that it is still tied, it will go to whoever was nominated for fewer positions, to encourage handlers to nominate characters only for positions that are meaningful to them. In the event that the voting is still tied, the position will be awarded via rolls.

Any positions that are not filled in this fashion will be considered open. Open positions may be claimed by any handler when submitting a new or revised character, on a first come first serve basis (for example, if no soccer captain for the girls' team was nominated prior to the voting period, any handler could submit a character and state that she was the captain of the team, and after that character's approval the position would be considered filled). Any positions that are not filled at all can be assumed filled by NPCs, seniors who were not abducted, or students in lower grades, as appropriate.

As in previous versions, the elections for president and vice president will be handled slightly differently. Once we have the candidates, we will start a thread for that election. In that thread, each candidate will be allowed to present a speech. The presidency and vice presidency will then be decided with in-character votes, with one vote per character. We'll want all handlers whose characters are giving speeches to have them submitted to staff before voting begins, so get them in to SOTF_Help before the nomination period ends. Characters may not run for both president and vice president.

We've seen great pregame so far, and we hope that the activity and enthusiasm continues! Feel free to post any questions in this thread.

V6 Epilogue Spoiler Discussion Thread

Posted by backslash (SOTF Staff) at Jan 19 2018, 03:22 PM. 8 comments

As you might surmise from the title, the first part of the V6 epilogue is up. It will be posted in installments as more parts are completed. This thread is for discussing epilogue events so that those who don't wish to be spoiled won't stumble across the discussion somewhere they don't expect it. Please remember to keep chat discussion of the epilogue to the spoilers channel in the Discord.

And with all that out of the way, here's a bunch of spaces.

Okay, enjoy!
