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!

((George Leidman continued from Lonely American Nights))

George wasn't sure how long it'd been since he'd run this quickly, and for this distance. He'd been at Dustins burial place, depositing Tims bag, when he heard the announcement. He'd hesitated for half a second, before running as fast as he could through the swamp water, the announcement still playing. It mentioned something about "No murderers allowed" or something, but George kept running, still trying to make himself believe he was innocent.

He was trying not to get his hopes up. If it was a trick, if it was some other student playing a horrible joke on everyone, he didn't think he would be able to take it without breaking down even further. If it was all real, and he wasn't allowed on the boat...

Stop thinking that. I'm not... well... okay, fine, I am a murderer. But... I'm not like Lombardi. Surely they'll be able to see that.

So he stopped thinking, and kept running.

---------------------------------------------------------

He'd arrived. Out of breath and covered in swamp water, true, but he had arrived. He was at the beach, staring at the boat at the coastline, hardly believing it was truly there. It wasn't over yet, though. There was still the chance he wouldn't be accepted. But he wasn't like Lombardi, or Brook, or some other notorious murderer. Surely they'd accept him?

Taking a deep breath, George walked towards the boat, heart pounding, before stopping a few metres away. He tried to keep the stutter out of his voice, but he was too excited and nervous.

"H-hey." He said, simply. "Uh... My name's... George Leidman. Am I, uh... Do I have permission to leave?"

Isn’t it strange how so few words can change everything?

As soon as the man with the megaphone said he was sorry, George knew he wasn't getting off the island. There had always been that possibility, but having it said to him, by someone else, was completely different to thinking it. Having his kills being brought into perspective like this made him feel worse than he'd ever felt. It made him feel like a monster.

George barely noticed the other STAR member aim his rifle at him. He barely noticed the other students rushing to the boats. He just stood there, and he could only think "If only I'd known. If only I'd known there was another way off of here. If only I'd stopped to think about what I was doing, Gloria, Dustin and Tim would still be alive. They'd be on the boat with me, and we'd be going back home."

Even as the stream of students hurrying to the boat started to decrease and stop, and the boat started heading off, George still stood there, watching the boat disappear into the horizon. His only means of escape, gone. Because he just couldn't go on killing, in hopes of leaving. Each time he had, he just felt worse and worse about it all.

Eventually, George managed to will himself to move. He turned, and went back the way he came from.
