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.

Teo eyes snapped open. Nothing had woken him up and he'd slept like a baby. Normally this would of been good news for him, but given the current situation this was bad, very bad. Nick was supposed to have relieved him for guard duty when it was still dark.

It was not still dark.

He grabbed the crossbow nestled at his side and rolled in to a crouch. His body was slow, still waking up, and every joint ached from his sleep. The small clearing by the cliffs where they had made camp was quiet. Belongings had been left at the camp, no one had run off. Stepping to his feet Teo looked around. He didn't think Nick would of just simply left him but Jessica... now that was another story. A quick thought crossed his mind.

They were probably fucking. Hell, if he thought he was going to die he would of done the same. Teo smiled slightly. The difference was, he knew he was going to win. What with the amount of students remaining he was sure he was going to get out of this one. He had thrown away the old pad and had now replaced it with a simple list of names. The students who were still alive. Given his own state at present he was certain barring some stupid mistake he would be the winner here. Regardless, his current priority was to search for Nick right now.

It was then he heard the shout. So faint on the wind, but enough to recognise the voice. Teo broke in to a ungainly lope, his legs still waking from his sleep. There Nick was, his erstwhile companion, standing on the edge of the cliff looking down. Teo's heart skipped a beat. What was Nick doing, he wasn't seriously...? No way...

Teo sprinted to Nick's form as the boy in front of him moved his foot. Was Nick seriously stupid enough to kill himself this late, this close to the end? His firm hands grabbed around Nick and pulled him back from the edge. The wrestler just went with him. Not struggling or pushing back at all. The ground rose up to meet him as Teo stumbled back, caught off balance by the expectation of Nick resisting. The impact was soft and he pushed himself off the ground furiously.

"What the hell Nick? What are you thinking? Where the fuck is that slut Jessica?"

Nick looked back at him, fury in his bleary eyes, his face covered in tears, his fist clutched tight, as if to hold on to something no longer there. Teo took a step back and turned his head slightly in warning.

"Nick. Don't."

Nick was done. Teo could see it in his eyes, the way his shoulders sagged. The boy was defeated - dead weight and no more use. Hell, he'd probably just slow Teo down now. He didn't like the way this had ended, but it was too much of a risk to stay with Nick now. Unreliable, prone to outbursts, murder. He was no longer 'safe.'

"Nick," Teo said as he stepped away. "I think it's time we split up." He glanced over his shoulder as he turned to leave. "You made a poor decision. Don't let your emotions get in the way. You were a good ally Nick, and for that, I hope we don't meet again."

Teo wanted to say something more. The moment felt important, like someone should clap, or a speech given. He didn't have time for this. He checked the list again, crossing Jessica off from the ever dwindling list of students still alive.

So close to the end, there was no way he could lose.

He left Jessica's rucksack with Nick, this was the endgame, travel light and win the game. No long speeches, no hesitation. He'd been home soon for better or for worse. Winning was all that mattered now.

When you play, play to win.
