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!

So, copying straight off my notepad for the most part, so bound to be a little stream of consciousness-sort of thing.

Regan Flagg: 18 year-old music geek with dreams of music stardom. Play's the guitar in a band with her brother, played by Ciel. At least, I think we agreed to that. Hippy parents, so liberal home-life. Smart but not motivated, so doing poorly in school. Absent-minded and scattered, but friendly. Idolizes Dave Grohl and Angus Young. Also kicking around the idea of her being a closeted lesbian, so I'd want her to have someone who didn't mind being a girlfriend on the sly. Lot's of teenage angst, 'who am I?' sort of stuff.

Jane Gordon: I was thinking a combination of V4 pre-game Pondsworth and The Breakfast Club's Bender, minus any parental abuse. Ignored at home. Loves her parent's and is desperate for their attention, so get's in fights/bullies people for attention. Loves animals, and wants to be veterinarian in the future. Closest nerd, e.g., loves to read, doing great in school. Homophobic, but more out of lack of knowledge then any real hate, that is, hating what she doesn't understand, that sort of thing. I kind of want her to mellow out toward the end of pre-game, but I'd play it by ear.

Faye Martin: Quiet, dorky, artsy girl. OCD, rail thin/anorexic. Antisocial to the extreme, afraid of personal contact. Afraid of social interaction, but desperately wants to be able to make social connections/friends. Lonely. Talented artist, excels at painting and drawing. Uses art as a means of expression. After graduating, wants to work with computers or video games. See's video games as an escape.

And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass" -Terry Pratchett, The Truth

I've been kicking this idea around for a while, a while being a couple weeks, and I really want to write her out. And seeing how everyone has a sort of gimmicky character, it was either this or a deaf-mute-blind-paraplegic. Of course, now I really wish I'd posted this maybe yesterday or the day before. In light of, eh, recent posts, it seems like I'm jumping on the gender-confusion bandwagon, but what the hell.

Alex Avery: I want to write a female character that wishes that she’s a guy. Preferably, she’s good enough at acting that none of her classmates actually know that she is in fact a female. At the start of V5, she's in a sort of tormented state where she doesn't actually know what she wants to do with herself. That is, she's conflicted or she's afraid to do anything to change her situation. Instead, she binds her chest and talks in a low voice, maybe cuts her hair real short. What I was thinking was that she had just transferred into where V5 starts, so that none of her classmates actually knows that's she a girl.

I still have some stuff to work out, details and motivations and such, but I think I've got the basics down. I also want to work things out so she's not a one-note character, give her something beside wishing that she was a guy. Maybe she fights crime. Or plays basketball. Something.

Criticism and suggestions? Aside from the obvious arching an eyebrow and saying 'Gee, this looks similar to something I read recently.'

Geez, and here I thought I was being original. Weeeeell, thing is, I got the idea from Naoto, ala Persona 4. Sort of.
