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!

((Saul Fetteralf continued from Birdland))

As the dawn sun rose above the horizon, Saul was really starting to wonder if splitting up with Brendan had been the greatest of ideas. After the three of them had left the greens, he and Jojo had waited for the Australian to turn his back to them. As soon as that happened, they were off on their own, leaving him behind. The pair of them had their reasons for leaving Brendan, but as Saul reflected on their action, the more it felt that they'd virtually abandoned Brendan for him to die by himself.

'No, he had a gun. He can look out for himself,' Saul thought, trying to justify his actions. 'That's why we left him in the first place, it would've only been a matter of time before he turned on us... right?'

There'd be no way of telling if that would've happened anymore. The decision had already been made, it was in the past, so now he and Jojo were just going to have to cope with things on their own. And as for Brendan... unless they somehow encountered him again, they'd have to rely on the announcements to see what became of him. 'Huh, speaking of...' Saul thought, looking up to the brightening morning sky. A large building loomed ahead of them.

"Announcements will be on soon," Saul spoke to his travelling companion. More death and destruction was on the way. And he desperately prayed that his best friend's name didn't come up, as either a victim or a murderer. 'Garry... where are you? Please still be alive.'

CRACKLE

'Fuck... here we go.' Saul stopped and made hardly a sound as Danya's voice filled the air. Name followed name, thankfully no one Saul knew had bitten the dust. At least that was the case until the terrorist reached a certain point in the broadcast.

"Bill Davis showed Logan Reynolds how not to go about killing players, then gave Marion Summers a quick math lesson before Rhory Anne Broderick did for Davis as well."

'Bill... Logan... those names sound fami-oh... oh fuck me.' Bill Davis and Logan Reynolds. The two people who he'd met at the tower, the former of whom had even offered him a cigarette. And now both were gone. And to cap things off, the final fatality had been Jessie, captain of the girl's hockey team and someone Saul had known quite well. 'Good god...'

Saul sat on the ground, trembling slightly at hearing the news that three people he'd interacted with had all died, passed on, shuffled off this mortal coil. After taking a while for the shock to leave his system, Saul get back to his feet and pressed on with Jojo towards the building in the distance. There were some bushes in the way, so Saul passed through them. And lying on the other side...

"AHH! Oh my God!" Saul screamed and leaped back at the sight which greeted him.

It was Marco 'The Wall' Stonecastle, or what was left of him. The hockey player was lying stone dead on the floor with his lower body pockmarked by bullet holes, and his face had been kicked in. Blood stained face, his clothes and the ground where he lay. "F-fuc-" Saul couldn't finish his sentence, bending over and vomiting into the bush. It may not have been the first corpse he'd seen, but it was the first one of somebody he'd known.

Saul coughed, spluttered and spat to get rid of the vile taste filling his mouth after he finished vomiting. The back of his throat burned and his abdomen ached from the sudden contractions. He stood up straight, wiping gastric juices from his mouth with the back of his hand and turned to face Joss.

"I-I'll be fine, I'm okay" Saul replied, coughing again and breathing in deeply. "It's just... I knew him, he was a friend of Garry's, someone I spoke to regularly..." Saul looked down sadly at Marco's broken face, feeling his face go ashen once more at the sight. 'And now I'll never speak to him again.'

"And... I'll try not to throw up again. Dunno how much I can stop myself, but I'll try," Saul added on. "Let's just go, I don't want to be around here anymore," he said, slowly walking towards the corner of the huge building. He peeked around the side, seeing the coast clear with no one in sight. "No one's around, looks pretty safe to me," he spoke, readjusting the daypack on his shoulder and approached the side entrance to the warehouse.

He noticed the twigs scattered around the door too late, only seeing them the moment his foot came down on them. A series of snapping noises filled the air, Saul instantly recoiling from the sudden sound. 'Oh... oh you idiot, Saul,' he berated himself for failing to spot the sticks earlier. He bent down and picked up one of the broken twigs, glancing down at the small pile. 'Strange. There's no way they just dropped here out of nowhere, someone must've put these here. Why would they... oh.'

"I think someone might be inside the building," Saul said, standing back up and backing up away from the door. "I think we may have alerted them as well."

Somewhere inside the building, a female shrieked. Saul jumped back again at the sound, the idea of leaving the place was looking more and more desirable with each passing second. "Uh... yeah, I think that's a good sign that we should get the hell out of here," he spoke, starting to walk away from the warehouse at a quickened pace.

He saw the boy and girl, both of them making their way towards the large building. He didn't know if they saw him, but in all honesty he didn't really care, just as long as they didn't try to attack him. He just wanted to get as far away from there as quickly as possible, making sure to take a different route out so as not to walk past Marco's dead body again.
