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!

Noise.Slice!SLIPPING!FALLING!!!

THUD!




Owww...

Will's first thought was that the he was lucky that he had actually gotten some sleep and that the time he had seen the sun coming up had just been a dream. His second thought was "Why the hell was I sleeping in a tree?"

As Will properly came to he noticed that the noise that had awoken him was the speakers installed around the island, and that Danya was presently giving the second announcement he had heard. Unfortunately, hitting the ground had caused him to miss half the announcement, and before he could figure out what he was doing the voice over the speakers had reached started reading out the list of danger zones. This was the part Will needed to hear, and the part he needed to check against his map. And to do that, he'd need to find his bag. In the time it took him to realise that his bag was still wrapped around him he managed to miss all of the locations the voice had read out. No need to get the map out now, he'd just have to stay in place and pray that he didn't explode.

Slowly, the panic and confusion began to wear off and Will returned to the task of getting his bearings. The sound of waves against the shore had a calming effect on him, and he dimly remembered hearing it late last night when he'd decided to climb a tree. In hindsight, the choice was probably a good one, what with nobody to keep watch when he slept. He'd just have to choose a better tree next time. Or find somebody else. That was what he was trying to do, after all. Of course, if he found some girl he'd probably end up staying awake all night taking their turn, but Will didn't think he'd mind that as much. Perhaps if Hilary had stayed that's what he'd have been doing last night instead of wandering and hiding.

But today the first order of business was finding out exactly where he was, and whether or not he was safe. Gathering up his hat and his stick, Will straightening his clothes and headed toward the sound of the water.

The beach itself was beautiful. This program sure did choose some wonderful locations as a backdrop for all its horror and suffering. Will had gone camping by the beach with his family once, and that was definitely what this was reminding him of. It seemed so peaceful. That was, until he spotted the figure standing up a short distance to his left. Will ducked behind the nearest tree as quickly as he could.

A whole day and I'm still not good at this? I'm dead.

Same routine as yesterday, see someone, duck behind tree, check if it's Bounce or one of the others, sneak off, move on. Run into someone else, repeat. The only thing stopping Will from returning straight to this pattern was when he heard the girl call out. She was asking if he was alright.

Poking his head out to take a look, Will realised that this wasn't the case. The girl was talking to someone else and Will hadn't been discovered yet. The fact that there was some else here made Will uneasy, but he still felt confident to approach them. The girl seemed to be acting nice enough, she couldn't be a murderer. The other person could still be, but then Will would just have to save her from whoever it was.

Will snuck from behind his tree towards them to get a closer look. If he could figure out who these people were he'd be able to figure out just what to do. Ducking past another tree trunk he saw them. He recognised the girl instantly; her name was Courtney or something. He hadn't had much need to interact with her back at school, but she had always seemed a nice enough girl. The boy she was speaking to was harder to identify, with his head hidden beneath a hat like Will's. There was a suppressing number of students with them at Bayview, and Will couldn't quite figure out who was ripping off who. Will remembered all of them though, and hazarded a guess that the person sobbing before him was Rekka. The fact that he was crying was something Will thought he should have recognised earlier. Will didn't think a killer would be crying like that. He felt relatively safe with the situation, and though his suspicion had not left him completely, Will took a step foward.

Suddenly, Will stopped, realising just how stupid he had been. He was completely exposed before them. They wouldn't have to be killers to be startled enough to turn and shoot him. Will stood frozen, a scared grin on his face, as if awkwardly trying to imply that he wasn't actually there.

'What's up?' That was a kinda odd question.

"Uh, we're kinda on Survival of the Fittest?" Will replied.

Of course, it probably hadn't been a real question, but Will hadn't known how to respond. It was clear she had just been trying to avoid the awkwardness of the situation, but as always that only lead to more awkwardness.

"Apart from that, not much."

The answer was completely automatic. Will didn't even realise how awesome he could have made the phrase sound. It just made him feel stupid for saying something so inane. This conversation wasn't getting any easier.

Suddenly Will was sent back to reality by the sound of a gunshot. It wasn't excatly nearby, but it was close enough to have a sense of immediacy. Even worse, it was from the direction Rekka had headed. Will suddenly remembered his warning.

"Oh shit..."

Will glanced around quickly. Up the beach seemed like the best way to get away from their current position. He lowered his stance and prepared to run.

"Uh, talk about this later? Come on!"

Will dashed past Courtney and headed away from the sound of the gunfire as quickly as he could.
