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!

((Ericka Bradley continued from In For a Penny, In For a Pound))

A pile of furniture and debris sat in the corner of the bedroom of one of the houses near the center of town. It was positioned in such a manner that someone could crawl in and out of it. Ericka Bradley awkwardly crawled out of a gap in the pile. She turned around and reached back in for her bag, then stood and stretched.

It was dark, probably night. She had gotten here shortly after the announcement and had decided that it was a good place to hide and rest. Now that she had awoken, she slowly made her way to the building's entrance. The front of the building was in poor shape, the windows were broken and the door was missing.
Ericka peeked through the broken window, no movement. She moved to the door and leaned against the frame. How many of her classmates were still alive? She yawned, staring at the sky. It wasn't as if she liked killing her classmates, but there wasn't any choice. The fact that there was a rescue didn't change that, quite the opposite in fact.

Ericka looked around. There were certainly more places to hide in the town then at some of the other parts of the island, but that was only a good thing if you wanted to stay hidden if you wanted to avoid an ambush then this was a poor area to work with... On the other hand, if you want to stage an ambush... That was something she could work with.

Now, how should she go about this. Suddenly, she had a flash of inspiration. She walked over to another building and cautiously stepped inside. She used some debris to prop up her flashlight pointed it at the window and turned it on. Then she went back to the building she had slept in and silently watched. Hopefully someone would see the light and decide to investigate, allowing her to get the drop on them. Or maybe not, whatever. It was better than nothing.

It was taking a long time for anyone to walk by, but that was to be expected, especially when a trap is made for someone or something that might not even be that close. But then, no one said it was gonna be quick, or easy... or that it would work at all. In fact, no one had said anything, since she'd been alone the entire time.


Eventually someone came along and noticed the light. It was a small miracle that, given the way Ericka's luck had been going, would probably result in major injury or death. Ericka decided not to dwell on the last part, instead readying her gun and slowly making her way toward the other girl.

When she thought she had a clear shot, Ericka pulled the trigger...


...Aaannd a miss. Fuck. FUCK! Doesshehaveagun? Whatifshehasagun? Notimetothink! Gettocover! Firefromcover!

Ericka ran quickly back to the building she was hiding in, she could still smoke out her prey, but if she let the tables get turned she might not get another chance. She had to be cautious!

Ericka was trying to calm herself down, but it wasn't really working. The girl didn't want to fight, though, so that was something, kinda.

"I don't really want to fight either..." Ericka began, halfheartedly, "but that's not really the issue is it?"

She let out a sigh, "Look, I have nothing against you, personally, but it would be better for me if you were dead."

She looked for some way that she could move around if this became a firefight,

"Those rescue boats aren't coming back, you know, and even if they did our captors would probably be able to blow the collars this time. Which means that there is only one way off now, doesn't it?"

Her efforts to find wiggle room in order to attack or escape were rendered moot when the announcement revealed that they were in a dangerzone.

"A truce? Well, I guess I don't really have a choice." Ericka began in a hurried panic, "Deal."

She rushed out the door and away from the center of town.

"And I assume that there is going to be some kind of grace period once we're out so the last one out doesn't get a chance to shoot the first one out in the back?"


((Ericka Bradley continued in Through and Through))
