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!

'So this must be what a wolf feels like, walking through the forest with his pack,' Garry thought as he gazed around at the trees, keeping a look out for other people who could be out to kill them. A sudden itch on his neck made him raise his hand up to scratch the irritated spot, resulting in him accidentally grasping the collar. It wasn't enough to accidentally detonate it, but he still flung his hand away in horror as he remembered the explosive around his neck. 'God damn it, I could've killed myself just because of a stupid itch. I gotta stay focused,' he mentally growled.

While Garry gently scratched at the itch, Miranda was beginning to have doubts with Saul's map-reading skills. 'It can't take us that long to reach this place, surely,' she thought. Cyrille had to have been thinking along the same lines, for she spoke up and claimed that they were going the wrong way.

"I'm with Cyrille on this," Miranda stated, setting her bag down on the ground and pulling the map out from her bag. It was crinkled and creased up from being in the duffel bag most of the time, but the details on it were still legible. "The ranger station is only here, we should have reached it by now," she said, pointing at the building marked on the piece of paper

Cyrille then shouted out rather loudly that there was a cave nearby. "Oh no, we're not going in that cave," Miranda exclaimed. Garry nodded with Miranda then started to speak himself.

"Cyrille, I thought we already explained that it wasn't that much of a good idea to-Cyrille!" To Garry's shock, Cyrille seemed to ignore him and ran off to enter the cave all by herself. "She's going to get herself killed," Garry grumbled to himself, dashing after her while holding the ji. With cat ears, Cyrille was defenseless. And if a murderer was indeed inside, she was just going to end up as his or her victim. Fortunately, after the girl ventured deeper inside, she shouted out that it was empty. 'Well that's a relief,' Garry thought.

Meanwhile, outside the cave, Miranda was standing there, unsure what to do. "This is going to end badly, I just know it," she sighed, looking towards the dark mouth of the cave. After hearing Cyrille call out that the place was empty, she took a deep breath and started to march towards the opening. "I guess we'd better go in after them," she said.

((OOC: Got to get Garry out of here as well))

Miranda watched on in bemusement as Cyrille suddenly exited the tunnel, immediately apologised to her and Saul, and then proceeded to walk away into the forest before she had time to register what exactly just happened. 'What the hell?' Miranda thought. 'She just came out of the cave like that, and then she walks away without waiting for us?'

"Cyrille, wait for us!" Garry called out in the general direction that the girl had walked in, running out of the tunnel to join the other two members of their group. "Why does she keep on doing that? We need to follow her and make sure she doesn't get into trouble," he stated, trying to look for Cyrille's form through the trees.

"No," Miranda just blurted out, drawing a shocked look from the hockey player. "I'm sorry, but that girl is only going to get herself killed if she does stuff like that all the time," Miranda spoke. "If we follow her, we're just going to get ourselves killed as well, so I'm out."

"You... you can't be serious, Miranda," Garry said, feeling and sounding hurt at her cold comments "We assured her we'd find Violetta, her girlfriend for crying out loud. Don't you have a freaking heart?" he retorted.

"I do, but I have a brain as well, and I know that Cyrille's little quest is going to be the death of us." Garry just continued to glare at her as she spoke, unwilling to satisfy her with a reply. "Fine, you can go and follow Cyrille, search for Violetta while risking all your lives in the process, but you can leave me out of this. I only joined your group because I thought I'd be safe in a group, but I guess I was dead wrong."

"Oh we will follow Cyrille and we will find Violetta," Garry said as he glared at the swimmer. "And we don't need you. You can just go where you like, do what you like, just as long as you don't interfere in what we're trying to do. If I do somehow see you again, and quite frankly I hope I don't, I won't kill you, I won't even attack you. I will just walk away and leave you alone. I am not teaming up with you again, even if you're on your knees and begging."

Miranda just glared heatedly at Garry for several seconds, breathing heavily before turning her back to him and striding off towards the trees in a different direction to Cyrille, the branch still in her hand. Soon, she was out of sight, hidden from Garry's view by the multitude of tree trunks that marked the forest edge. She did not look back at him or Saul once.

"Good riddance to bad rubbish," Garry growled, then looked in the direction that Cyrille went. "C'mon Saul, let's go find Cyrille before she gets too far ahead," he spoke, starting to walk into the forest with the ji slung over his shoulder.
