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!

You've been counting stars, now you're counting on me
[ *  *  *  *  *  *  * ]
British Columbia, Canada

It had been a long, long trip. Kwong Lei had been rescued, not by the crews of the boats dispatched to the island, but rather by the group who had launched the attack on the terrorists' headquarters. The event itself was a blur of smoke and gunfire and faraway sounds, all lost in the haze of the drug stupor he had been kept in. He still couldn't figure out why they had kept him alive, unless perhaps they had planned to interrogate him as to the tangential role he had played in affairs.

But now, after two days of secret travel and furtive phone calls and a barrage of friendly yet pointed questions, Mr. Kwong's return to the surviving students had been arranged. It was supposed to be a joyous occasion, a celebration, but for some reason he couldn't quite see it that way. There were so few of them left, and the majority of the names on the roster he had been shown were not ones that he knew. It felt petty and wrong to be upset that his favorites—his math stars and his debate team and the students he personally tutored—had, by and large, not been among those rescued. He felt that he should just be thankful that there were still students, that Bayview Secondary School still had something of a class of 2008. It defied the odds in an exceptional way.

The whole thing still felt very bitter sweet.

The boy who was escorting him now, through the halls of the hospital, seemed nice enough. He had been explaining things, the situation and their hopes and the condition of the students, which varied wildly. Mr. Kwong was only half listening, the part of his mind that focused on debate and rhetoric noting how studiously the boy avoided sharing any concrete information that would not be immediately obvious from a bit of observation. They all seemed wrapped up in their secrecy. He didn't care. After all they had done, anything was acceptable.

They turned a corner, and walked towards another door, at the end. A small wing of the hospital had been reserved for the rescued students, to isolate them from the other patients. While many of the students had recovered enough in the past day or so to at least move around some, some were still bed bound and in varying degrees of discomfort. Besides, that only touched on the physical harm they had received. Mr. Kwong suspected that many of them would still be in therapy years from now. For that matter, so would he.

He reached his hand out, ready to open the door, when footsteps, from behind, at the tempo of a light jog, caught his attention, as well as his guide's. The young man turned, slipping his hand into his pocket faux-casually, but instantly loosened up a bit when he saw that the person coming was one of his allies.

"Hey, Jax," the newcomer said, breathing a little hard and smiling a little too wide. "They seen him yet?"

"Not yet."

"Good. Can he wait a sec?"

"I can wait," Mr. Kwong said. He decided that he would not have liked this boy if not for his role in the rescue; he was far too willing to speak as though Mr. Kwong wasn't even there.

"Great. Jax, over here."

The two of them disappeared down a side hallway, leaving Mr. Kwong standing awkwardly, feeling out of place. He could hear murmurs, but couldn't make out the words. He hoped it was good news, but he doubted it. At this point, he wouldn't be at all surprised if things went wrong, if some hit squad was even now on its way to clean up loose ends. It would just make too much sense for the hope to have been in vain. He shuffled his feet a little, forced himself to straighten up and assume a better, more formal posture, like he was about to lecture his Calculus students again. Whatever was happening, he would face it with dignity. He examined the posters on the walls while he waited, reading and rereading medical trivia he had known for years, just to trick his system into not going into overdrive. SO far, it was working. He wasn't sweating too badly.

But when the men came back around the corner, they were both smiling, and the one who was called Jax said to him, "It looks like we won't just have one piece of good news today."

And from the tone, from the expressions, Mr. Kwong could just about believe, for the first time, that everything truly was going to be alright.





The Rolls:
1. Ilario Fiametta (faceinabook) - Erik Laurin (faceinabook, Swap Card used)
2. Ivan Kuznetsov (MK Kilmarnock) - Greg (Roll Null used)
3. Nick LeMonde (Ruggahissy)
4. Zach Jamis (Ciel)
5. Josee Trembley (Limisios)
6. Josie Vernon (zombiexcreame)
7. Saul Fetteralf (JamesRenard)
8. Raidon Naoko (Grim Wolf)

As always, three days for cards, seven more for deaths. I'm gone until Sunday, so there will not be a countdown for cards this time.




The rules stuff. This only applies to the final four (or whatever), and is intended to prevent V3-style slowdown while remaining fair:

Inactivity for endgame will be handled a little differently. Specifically, once it becomes your turn to post, you have six days to get a post up. If you fail to do so, your character gets yanked and inactive killed. It doesn't matter if you were supposed to win; inactivity will be enforced. Being Away is still allowed, but we're hoping to avoid huge delays caused by handlers being gone for months at a time.

If that describes you, if you have no interest in being in endgame, or if you do not feel that you can keep up with the posting regime, you can opt out by sending Help a PM stating that you are doing so. We'll count those characters as automatically rolled, then roll down to the final four (or five, or whatever we're doing this time) from whoever we have remaining.

Please note that six days is the absolute maximum. Really, it should take you much less than that. Bookkeeping is going to be very strict on this; you can and will get busted if you stray over 144 hours at all.

I am asking for but do not expect to receive a save. PM me with death ideas, but do know that they're subject to an idea I'm working on.

I accept death. Because if you're afraid of death, it seems like demons are tearing your life from you. But if you are at peace, then the demons are angels, freeing you from the earth O____________O

>_>

<_<

That being said, I have no idea what the hell I am going to do. I am accepting offers to escort me from the mortal coil.

Oh smeg, I knew that this day would come one day. Although admittedly I never thought I'd survive this long. I have no immediate ideas as to how she can die so I'm open to any suggestions; however, I would prefer to avoid anything too vanilla, such as simply aggravating someone and getting shot. So if anyone has any suggestions, I am open to hear them and collaborate with them.

Okay, this might be horribly impolite, but I don't know how else to go about putting out such a request/question/invitation/whatever-it-counts-as. Basically, I've been building up Ema (who probably has no right to have survived this long) as a very-late-game killer recently, and going into the final twelve, I'd like for her to properly amp up the killing and be truly threatening.

But I digress. Point is, anybody up for being involved in an Ema Ryan double (or more) kill?

I apologise in advance if this is the wrong place to ask.
Every time you fall asleep you die. Someone else wakes up in your body, thinking they're you.
You are alone and trapped in your own mind, the world around you is your lie.
Soon you will be nothing, you will never again hear sounds, never again see colours, never again be anyone.

Hi! There's actually a standing point of etiquette, which is that you should not request kills in the rolls thread/ask handlers for kills before they request ideas. If you wish to request kills, this is the appropriate place to do so. Thanks!

Okay, yeah, this works perfectly. It's his time.

Saves here will be very appreciated, but I'd rather you use them on the others.

I have an idea all conjured up. However, it in fact needs to involve another rolled character, preferably a player. I'm accepting ideas too. Just note I will be very very picky.

Um, crud. And right as I was really getting into RPing with Saul.

Well, I may as well be a total hack and ask nicely for a hero/null if any are available?

Barring any unexpected saviors (who would have my undying gratitude and pretty much anything else they asked for), I'm swapping Erik in for Ilario.

I have the concept of his death planned - I do, however, need a killer or someone with a gun to help me execute (hehehe) it. If your character is willing to fire off their gun in his general direction, shoot me a PM and let me know. Large amounts of involvement in the death is not required or expected.

Also, preemptively requesting an extension of...umm, let's say four days. I get my wisdom teeth out on Tuesday and while that means no work so more time to write, it may mean less brain to write.
