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!

B145: Garry Villette - V4 Start

Garry stood, looking up at the top of the mountain in front of him. He had been awake for around twenty minutes, and he was currently in a foul mood. When he'd first woke up and realised the gravity of the situation he found himself in, he was scared stiff as well as pissed off. He'd hastily unzipped his bag for his weapon, and pulled out a long pole with three blades on it, a long thin blade at the tip with two curved blades on either side of it. It seemed to be quite a decent weapon, which calmed him down a touch.

'Shame I'm not going to be using it,' he thought, glancing at the blades that reflected the dawn sun.

It was ironic. Despite being a fan of creatures that wouldn't hesitate to rip a human to shreads in a heartbeat, Garry wasn't a violent person himself. If ever he was ticked off or full blown furious about something or other, he would usually take his frustrations out on an ice hockey puck in the rink, not another person.

'I'm not on a hunt for prey, I'm on a hunt for my pack,' Garry thought. The pack in question was the ice hockey team, whoever ended up going on the 'trip' with him anyway. 'Safety in numbe-'

"SHIT!"

Garry jumped at the sudden expletive, looking around him and holding the ji up in defence. 'That didn't sound like it was that far away from me,' he thought, feeling the hairs on the back of his neck standing up. 'Wait, I recognise that voice!'

Garry started walking towards the source of the noise, careful not to trip over any rocks, branches or the like. He couldn't put his hands out to stop the fall, seeing at both were already wrapped around the staff of his weapon. It took him a few minutes of walking before he saw a familiar black haired person wearing a green hoodie, standing there and looking to be... crying? Garry smiled for possibly the first time that day; he'd found one of his allies.

"Saul!"

'Cat ears? What the hell were they thinking?' Garry thought in bewilderment as he heard the girl give out her weapon. 'They're next to useless, how is she supposed to defend herself with those? Anyway, I'd better answer Saul.'

"Yeah, you can join us," Garry spoke, smiling as best he could, given their current circumstances. Put on an island and forced to fight to the death, there was precious little to smile about. "Who is it you're looking for, by the way?"

Somewhere in the vicinity, a branch snapped. Garry immediately turned to face where the noise came from, holding the ji out in front of him. He glared past the blades at whatever, or whoever, had just turned up on their doorstep. "Who's there?" he demanded.



G109: Miranda Merchant - V4 Start

'This... this is a disaster,' Miranda thought, having trudged close to the base of the mountain for the past half an hour. Her normally sleek blonde hair was speckled with dirt and twigs from when she'd woken up on the ground, and one of her sandles looked like it was going to fall apart at any second. 'I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere, I've lost some hearing in my right ear, I've been told to kill the other students in my grade, and all I have to defend myself with is this piece of shitty wire.'

The length of garrotte wire, her assigned weapon, was held limply in her left hand, while she held an opened water bottle in her right. 'What do I do? Should I do the unthinkable and... fight to survive?' She took a sip of water and shook her head. 'No! I can't do that, it's not right!'

She paused her trek when she heard the sound of talking coming from not too far away, coming from her left. 'Other people! Oh please, please let them be friendly.' Had the voices been coming from her right, she may have not heard them at all due to her ear infection.

She started to make her way to the source of the conversation, unintentionally stepping on a branch as she approached the students. She heard one of them, a male, suddenly call out, having possibly heard the noise she'd generated. "It's me, Miranda," she shouted out in reply, walking out from the trees towards the trio. "D-don't kill me, I come in peace."

"No, we're not going to kill you, we're not taking part in this game, if you can call it one," Garry replied, lowering his weapon so he didn't look as threatening to the newcomer. "We're going to be looking for Violetta."

He looked round to Saul, who was checking the map and then announced that the group should start moving off before someone else - someone with more murderous intentions - arrived on the scene.

'Saul's got a good point,' Garry thought, looking around him for anybody else who might be nearby. 'But if someone attacks us, it's really gonna be down to me to protect everyone. Saul's ball-thing won't be much good, and what can you do with a piece of wire if we're ambushed? But even if I do have a decent enough weapon, would I really have the guts to use it? Could I kill someone else if it meant I saved these lives?'

"Let's... let's just hope it doesn't come to that," Garry stated, gripping the ji even tighter as he tried to flush those thoughts from his head. "You found any places we could head off to then?" he asked, turning to face Saul.



'Well that's a relief,' Miranda thought, glad that her life wasn't about to be cut short just yet. Garry, she knew very well, since he was in her biology class. He was weird, yes, but he didn't seem like the killing type. Saul, he was the guy who played the husky mascot, but the other girl, who went by the name of Cyrille, she didn't know her all that well.

"Violetta? I haven't seen her, you're the first people I've seen since I woke up," Miranda replied, tilting her left side of her head to face the others. She suddenly clenched her right eye as a sudden jolt of pain went through her ear. "Ow! Goddamn ear," she muttered. 'The doctor said my ear would be back to normal in a few days,' she thought, trying to ignore the throbbing pain while inspecting the damage done to one of her sandles. 'That's all well and good, except for the fact I might be dead in a few days!'

Saul then announced that the newly-formed group should start making a move, then Garry asked Saul about where they would be going. "Hey, Saul, I know you've got the map and you're doing the navigation, but I had a look at my map a while ago," Miranda chimed in. "Do you think it would be best if we found a building and took shelter there for a while? It'll be a lot, lot easier to defend it, wouldn't you agree?"

"De rien," Garry responded in French to Cyrille. 'I just hope we find Violetta soon,' he thought. 'The longer we take, the more likely it is she's... yeah, it's really not worth thinking about.'

Then to Miranda's mild disappointment, Cyrille stated that taking shelter in a building was a bad idea. Both Garry and Miranda then listened intently to Cyrille's explanation, the swimmer feeling fairly miffed at having her notion shot down and replaced with one that, in her opinion, was nowhere near as safe as hers. 'Taking shelter in a cave? Nuh-uh, I do not do caves,' Miranda thought. She was about to argue back with Cyrille, but Saul spoke up first, agreeing with her earlier idea and putting forwards a fairly good case defending it.

"I would have to agree with Saul," Garry piped up once Saul was finished. "I know I'm into werewolves and all that jazz, but seriously, I want to stay away from the caves. You wouldn't know who or what's ahead of you until it's too late, or you could get trapped from the outside and cornered. And then BAM! You're werewolf food. Okay, maybe not werewolf food exactly, but you still catch my drift."

"Yes, Wolfy, we get the idea," Miranda said, rolling her eyes then turned to look at Saul. "Yeah, the ranger station sounds good enough to me," she said. "I just don't want to go into a cave, they just... creep me out a little."

'Wolfy... seriously?' Garry thought, glancing round to Miranda but deciding not to pursue her comment further. "It sounds like a good plan to me as well," he replied, nodding his head in Saul's direction. "Is that all okay with you, Cyrille?" he asked her, bracing himself for any negative response she would give him.

Garry smiled, glad that Cyrille wasn't going to argue or complain about the current course of action. 'Last thing we want is an argument breaking the pack up,' he thought.

"Let's go then," Miranda said, starting to walk behind Saul. She peered down to the ground and saw another branch lying on the dirt. She bent down to pick it up and grimaced; the bark felt damp and it had a few insects crawling over it. Shaking the branch to rid it of the pests, she kept hold of it with the intention of using it as a rudimentary club if or when the time arose.

"Guys, I'll take up the rear and keep an eye out for anyone trying to sneak up on us from behind," Garry announced, walking behind the other three with the ji held in a defensive position and scanning all around him for possible attackers. Seeing none, he smiled weakly and followed the three others towards their next port of call.

((Garry Villette and Miranda Merchant continued in Extinguishing the Light of the Future))
