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!

A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.
[ *  *  *  * ]
((Jason Harris and Maf continued from The Cavalry Arrives))

Slowly, the grainy sand of the beach gave way to first grass then shrubs then forest. As the duo headed further inland, the calming sound of the waves and the chatter of the students boarding the life rafts faded from hearing, leaving them once again alone in the now eerily quiet forest. Maf had followed behind and despite Jason’s insistence for both Nathan and Maf to turn back they had doggedly refused his protests. Although they had set off as soon as they could Jason had stopped to inquire if anyone knew Brook’s whereabouts. Although no one had given him an exact answer there was enough to indicate that his friend was somewhere in this vicinity. The rest of what Jason had heard he dismissed out of hand. The idea that Brook was some sort of psychopath was almost impossible for him to comprehend.

He paused at a tree, the firm bark felt dirty across his hand. It didn’t matter though, last time he had a shower he was... back at Bayview.

The shower head spluttered in to life and Jason leapt backwards. “Fuck’s sake!” he cursed. The water in these showers was always either ice cold or scalding hot. It was as if some government wizard has somehow calibrated the system to remove all the temperatures that could possibly be useful.

The boisterous laugh Nathan echoed down the locker room wall. “What’s up Jason? Having problems ‘down under’?”

“Suck it Nath!” Jason yelled back. “It’s pretty obvious that this country hasn’t fully mastered the concept of temperature yet. You guys still using the Fahrenheit system? I mean what’s up with that?” The water was at least usable now and Jason tentatively stepped in. The track run had really taken it out of him. The cuts and bruises stung as the water ran over him. It felt good and Nathan’s response was lost in the haze of water that engulfed him.

Graduation in a few weeks, and the class trip before that. He was glad that this would be the last track run of the season but he got the feeling he’d miss the consistency of the exercise. He doubted he’d ever run such a long distance or so fast again. He arched his head back so his ears were out of the immediate stream of water.

“Maf! You around?” he yelled.

“Yeah.” The monosyllabic Fijian kept true to form. He had never really forgiven himself for the incident all that time ago. Jason had tried initially to tell him to snap out of it, but after a while it was clear that nothing would change him back to the gregarious football player he once was.

“I’m thinking we should grab something to eat after class yeah? I’ve got nothing to do.”

Maf nodded in response. “Ok”

Jason turned the water off and grabbed his towel. “You guy’s too.” He motioned to Nath.

Nath looked up. “Yeah sounds good, but where’s Brook?”


“What do you mean? He’s right here?” said Jason motioning to the benches. Nathan gave him a weird look.



“Where’s Brook Jason?”




“What?”




“Where’s Brook?”




The coarse bark scrapped against Jason’s hand as he blinked in the sunlight. “Jason, you alright?” Nathan queried. “We need to find Brook remember. Before the boats leave.”

Jason shook his head to clear his thoughts. “Yeah. I’m good. I just needed a sec.” Maf had caught up with the two, panting. This was the first time he had managed to catch them. He turned his gaze to the duo.

“Nathan, Jason, what is going on?” The words rumbled across the empty clearing.

Jason turned to Nathan. “You want to field this one mate? I’ve just got to...” A wrenching feeling grasped Jason’s stomach for an instant and he barely managed to turn away as he expelled the contents of stomach. He waved his hand behind him. “Just winded is all.”

He frowned. The specks of blood in the vomit told him otherwise.

Sickness: Partially suicidal... very slightly because of my report, but mostly because Jason is dead. All of my personal issues stem from the fact that Jason Harris did not win SotF v4

((Just a quick post to avoid inactivity - waiting on you ben :D))

Jason nodded grimly.

"I'm almost certain Brook's around here somewhere. We can't up and leave him and surely if someone's found us and sent rescue boat's they'd of dealt with whoever kidnapped us. I'd rather not take chances though, lets see what we can do."

He paused momentarily feeling rather than seeing the presence of Maf. The guy wanted to say something for sure but as usual was waiting his turn. Maf was nothing if not polite. The guy had taken a few hits already and had followed the two other boys. Jason hoped no permanent damage had come to him.

"You ok mate?"

((Placeholder as well as I'm waiting for certain long overdue events to happen and to respond to Maf))

Jason partied hard. A Little too hard. After arguing with nathan a little and watching maf go to his dismay, finds something of brooks and follows that lead.

((Double placeholders cause... ><, stuff re announcements etc.))

Jason wanted to move on, but he somehow couldn't as if he was waiting for something that was not appearing.

After some time he snapped out of it and moved onward.

((Jason Harris continued elsewhere))
