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!

((Ericka Bradley continued from Not An Easy Out))

Why did I do that? Not having encountered another person since the death of Lucas, Ericka had time to go over the event in her mind. She still wasn't sure why she had started shooting, she was moments away from having a safe way out anyway. How could she have such a poor understanding of her own actions? All she knew was that she couldn't do that again. She wanted to get off of the island, but a high body count would only make her hunted by the other students. She had to kill only when necessary.

She found a tunnel entrance and walked into it. She kept her left hand to the tunnel wall and her right hand on her knife. Her gun was safely stored in the holster she found for it. The knife would probably be the better choice in the closed quarters of the tunnel, but it was comforting knowing her gun was in an easy-to-access location, just in case.

After some walking Ericka came across a part of the tunnel with the roof caved in; a girl was underneath the light that filtered in from above. The other girl took out her flashlight and turned it on. Ericka felt lucky that she wasn't in a part of the area that got lit up, but she knew it was only a matter of time until her presence was noticed.

"Hey," Ericka greeted the figure, "Who are you? Name, number, AND weaponry, please."

So... this Autumn girl... assuming she was being truthful, that would mean she was unarmed. Ericka shifted her weight. Somehow this news was not as comforting as it should have been.

“Who are you?”

After a moment of hesitation, Ericka responded. "Uh... I'm Girl number sixty-three, Ericka Bradley. Back at Bayview, I used to volunteer at the school library. I was assigned a gun, but I also have a knife from the time I was attacked on the second day, which you might have heard the results of...."

A sense of dread began to overwhelm her, and she worried if she may have revealed too much information. She tried to calm her nerves, but it was of no use. Her eyes began to tear up.... How long was this going to last, she wondered?

With tears streaming down her cheeks, Ericka fell to her knees. She tried to wipe her tears with her left hand, but they kept coming.

"E-Every da-day," Ericka stuttered through her tears, "Every day I've r-run into other people a-and at l-least one of th-them has tr-tried to kill me."

She calmed down a little. She was still sobbing but her words were a little clearer. "It's my fault I'm even here. I convinced my Mom to sign the permission slip, *sniffle* Dad wouldn't have let me come... I should have listened to Dad..."

Ericka was suddenly feeling increasingly insecure, so she sat with her back up against the wall. Then she put away her knife and drew her gun from the holster, cradling it. The gaze of her still moist eyes darted to the various dark corners of the room, searching for any threats that might have gone unnoticed.

"I only took the gun out because I didn't feel safe with just the knife," Ericka said, drying her eyes and standing up again, "I... was heading toward the residential district. You can come with me if you want, I guess..."

Ericka returned her gun to it's holster and took the knife back out. "If you don't want to follow then you should probably go the way I came from; there is an exit not very far in that direction. If you are following me then please turn off the flashlight; The light may be noticed by a killer, and if you keep your hand in contact with the wall you'll be sure to find your way out eventually anyway."

Ericka placed her left hand back on the wall it had been touching until a moment ago and walked passed the other girl down the tunnel.

((Ericka Bradley continued A Day at the Beach))
