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!

Guys, I think I'm going to have to do that little throat-clearing thing and remind everyone that extensions are supposed to be granted for like, extenuating circumstances, not really 'Oh I wasn't quite on the ball enough and need to get the duckies in order'.

THIS time, I'm going to let it slide and give a two day extension to each person that has asked for more time, but I'm going to have to put my foot down in the future. Even if you're hoping for a hero or not sure whether to play a swap, smart money says you should try and position things for the death as a 'just in case' measure. 8 days, for my money, is a very reasonable length of time and again, extensions are supposed to be for when you are stupid busy etc, etc.

Thus ends your daily Cluecture.

I hate to do it. I really do. I need an extension for Chadd. However it was because of the four day setback with the topic switch in the docks. I'll do everything I can to push this as fast as I can though.

Turns out I was a bit too overcautious with my request for an extension. My bad, that post was written quicker than I expected.

Dougal goes bye bye here.

Frankie met his end Here

Sorry it took so long
I'm not as awesome as this song makes out
I'm angry, underweight and sketching out
I'm building bonfires on my vanities and doubts
To get warm just like everybody else

just a quick question for clarification: does this mean you're personally handling extensions alone, or could we talk to another staffer about them too? it's just kind of confusing how you worded that

Thanks for your patience in letting me get it done so late. It shouldn't happen again.

If there's been any kind of extension given, it needs to be posted in here anyhow. But since you asked, no I'm not the sole giver-of-extensions, it just happened that a number had been requested without any response given to them in the thread.

The tone of the post in general was just referring to general enforcing of the extension rules, e.g. the staff team in general won't be granting extensions for wishy-washy reasons after future rolls.

Fox, you have 'till the 21st. Everyone else from the first crop, if they haven't currently concluded, tomorrow.

Likewise, I'm gonna have to request a slight extension for Steve. Took a while getting him into the thread, but shouldn't take terribly long to finish him off.
Turns out I didn't need it. Anyways, apologies for updating here late, but Steve was decapitated on Sunday evening, hereabouts.
Every time you fall asleep you die. Someone else wakes up in your body, thinking they're you.
You are alone and trapped in your own mind, the world around you is your lie.
Soon you will be nothing, you will never again hear sounds, never again see colours, never again be anyone.
