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!

Oh okay, so this was new.

One minute she and Thea were having a nice conversation, reminiscing about their time on the Cheer squad. It was the sort of conversation they might have had on the real trip. The next minute, Charlene had been shot, and Thea was shooting. As shots rang out, she dropped to her stomach, feeling sick. No, no, not again! This was almost exactly the same thing that had happened with Roman, only this time it didn't seem quite so random. Because, as she shakily started to pull herself up, she saw Hayley Kelly and Ema Ryan making a dash for it. Her eyes narrowed slightly; it was the first time she'd seen them, but she'd heard enough about Hayley at least to know that she didn't really want to become too associated with her.

So Acacia stayed ducked down in some loose shrubbery until they were pretty much past. Then she clambered to her feet and tentatively moved towards Thea. She had shot her gun! Admittedly it was in the heat of the moment and the girl had just shot her best friend, but it still surprised her. And they though that I was crazy! Then she remembered that Charlie had been shot, and in a flourish turned to run over to her. After all, she was a dab hand at dealing with this situation now. What had happened last time?

Oh yeah, she had squealed and cried and Jojo had fixed everything for her. She wondered where Jojo had gotten to, she couldn't remember hearing his name on the list of dead. Here, not being dead was everything. She wondered if Alex still hated her, and discovered that she wouldn't have blamed her if she did. Even though it wasn't her fault. And that reminded her, she was supposed to be trying to win so that she could go home and say sorry to his Mom. And she'd been concerned about teaming up with two of her friends because it meant that at some point she would have to kill them. And now there was one down...

No! How can you think like that?! She's your FRIEND. You played tennis with her. And now she's been shot and all you can think is 'well at least I didn't have to do it!' You're a sick girl, Acacia!

"Thea!" Acacia called to her friend. "Mary-Ann!" She wanted as much help as possible. Maybe one of them would have done a first aid course? She knelt down next to Charlie and put on her best calming face. The one she had totally failed to use when Roman had been shot. "We need to put pressure on her wound!" she made no move to put pressure on it herself, somehow her own interventions seemed to make people die. Also, she couldn't seem to make her limbs move.

Acacia turned slowly to Mary Ann.

"She got shot," Acacia said with surprising calm. Thea was with her, and she looked back at the both of them. They'd always been a lot closer to each other than she had been to either of them, and it didn't seem right to disrupt that when Charlene was so obviously... Hayley was a better shot than John was, it had taken Roman ages to die. She remembered the feeling of revenge that she'd felt afterwards, dulled into a shocked silence by the fact that John Smithhad died a few hours later anyway. Shaking her head, Acacia hoisted her bag up onto her shoulder.

"I'll try and follow them," Acacia said, as Charlene's final moments dripped past. She didn't want to see another person die, and pulled her gun out of her pocket, holding it loosely in her hands, wondering if she might finally get to use it. There was still a sense of excitement that tingled around the gun, it still felt cold, heavy in her hands but the feeling wasn't so alien any more. This was why she had connected with Roman anyway, he had loaded it, she was still clinging onto that somewhat. "See if I can't slow them down," Acacia turned to Mary Ann and nodded with pressed lips, before looking back to Thea. Every parting could be for the final time, for all she knew she might never see Thea or Mary Ann again. She might die on her way, Hayley Kelly might shoot her, someone might ambush the others. It was safest to travel alone.

With that final thought, Acacia picked up her heels and disappeared into the woodland just north of the cliffs. There was a good gap between them already, and she had no idea where they had gone, only the vague direction. Which, as she got out of the immediate shooting zone, she wasn't even entirely sure she had gotten right. They seemed to have disappeared awfully quickly, and Acacia chewed her lip.

You're not getting away that easily!

Although, the gun was the only thing that had really given her confidence in this game. Game, hah! And it wasnt going to be enough any more, because they had guns too. Guns that they had used before and probably had no qualms about using again, as far as Acacia knew. Shoot 'em in the back!
