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!

((Rein Bumgarner continued from Missing Those Lost))

Rein had managed to do pretty well for himself in the past few days. He hadn't starved, been stabbed, or fallen to one of the many nasty creatures that apparently inhabited this island. He hadn't even seen a hint of a bear, though at times he'd feared it was following him. Probably just the strangeness of the situation, the unreality of being so far from home, in this crazy death match.

But now, he'd found this wonderful place to wait until things calmed down some. It a nice, big building, with lots of boxes. None of them were open, and they seemed pretty useless overall, but that was okay. He didn't need usefulness, just a place to rest.

The announcements had been odd. A mixture of horrific and relieving. Carol and Simon were dead. Gary, though, was still fine, still out there somewhere. Since different people had killed Carol and Simon, Rein surmised that the group had been split at some point. Maybe that was why he'd lost them. Maybe they'd all gone their separate ways. Besides, had he hung around, he might have been killed by Max or Reiko. Those were two people Rein definitely didn't want to meet.

He gave a sigh, leaned back against a stack of boxes, and waited. Not that he really knew what he was waiting for.

Rein waited and waited. Time crawled by. He was ready to give up, to go back out to face the hell of the island, when, all of a sudden, he heard a voice, someone calling out. Someone else was coming, was going to be here. Maybe they'd seen Garry! The voice was female, sharing assurances that she came in peace. That was good. Rein didn't want to fight.

"Hallo," he called. "It's okay. I don't vant to hurt you either. You can come in if you like."

He had all sorts of questions for this girl. Maybe they could team up. Maybe Rein could do something again.

He wasn't at all worried that she could be being dishonest.

It didn't take long for the girls to take Rein up on his offer. That was good. They sounded friendly enough, and he could use a little company, something to break up the monotony before he went out into the chaos again. Maybe they'd even seen Gary. Maybe they could help Rein search for his friend.

"Hallo," he said in response to the girl who entered the warehouse. "And yes, I haf seen some of the things you describe. A girl killed herself for no reason, and I lost my best friend somewhere. Still, I tink that most of our class is good people."

Rein pushed himself away from the crate he was leaning against, smiling broadly, and took a couple of steps towards the door through which the girls would come, trying to look as nonthreatening as possible.

The girls left. Rein wasn't quite sure how to feel about that, but it had happened. There was nothing for him to do but go back to his position, leaning against the boxes and trying to figure out what to do. He'd have to find Gary again. He'd lost his friend ages ago, but he would find him. He knew he would.

His wish was to be granted sooner than he imagined.





Gary blinked as the girls left, and strained his ears again, trying to pick up another hint of that voice he'd heard. It had sounded like Rein, but there was no way it had been. No way. He'd lost his friend days ago. Convenient reunions didn't just happen like that. Well, okay, maybe this didn't quite count, since he'd scoured the island top to bottom in search of Rein, but still. It could be nothing more than wishful thinking, sleep-deprivation catching up in the form of delusions.

He almost turned away.

But no. He had to check. He had to know.

Slowly, carefully, he pushed the door open. It was dark inside. There was a figure, though, leaning against the crates, a figure with familiar posture. It was Rein. He'd done it.

"Hey," Gary called. "Hey, Rein!"

Without even waiting for a response, he charged his friend, slamming into him and pulling him into a hug.

Unfortunately for Gary and Rein, the stack of crates Rein was leaning against had not been positioned according to protocol. In order to make the area more traversable, Danya's prep team had stacked a couple of crates on top of already precariously-high piles. Rein's was one of these. Worse still, the boxes moved to the top were full of heavy machinery. The ones of the bottom were flimsy cartons containing plastic screws.

Gary's force as he hit Rein was great enough to send the German boy backwards into the bottom two crates, hard. One of them cracked, spilling screws everywhere and giving way entirely under the force above it. The stack tilted and fell, the upper crates slamming into the nearby wall and rebounding to come crashing down right on Rein and Gary.

They never knew what hit them, as they were pressed to the ground and crushed under a couple of tons of engine blocks in boxes.
