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!

I had an idea for an AU SOTF game. It's based on an old reality series called Endurance. Ten men and ten women will be camping out in a remote location, where they will compete in mixed gender teams of two. The object of the game is to receive all 14 pyramid pieces - somewhat complicated by the fact that each team starting out gets one piece by default. There are two types of missions - Endurance missions, for unclaimed pyramid pieces, and Temple missions, which allow the winning team to select two teams to go to the Temple of Fate, where one team will be eliminated. My rules will be as follows for characters:

  • Maximum of two characters per handler
  • You may take any character from SOTF versions 1 through 5 (assuming realism).
  • Pregame only characters are allowed.
  • Name changes are allowed within reason (so if the character is mostly the same, I'll allow it), with the original name of the character clearly stated as well as a link to the original character.
  • You may use characters from other handlers with that handler's express permission.
  • Handlers may offer up their own characters for adoption in Endurance, which puts those characters into a reserve list where they may be selected by other handlers if so desired.
  • There will be some roleplay, but a much of it will likely be through personal inquiries and a chat room, so as to keep the game moving.
  • Adoption for Endurance is for ONLY the Endurance AU.
  • Characters will be from their schools, and will be in the same year that they were in their respective season of SOTF, selected to go on the show in the summer of 2012. SOTF will have occurred with other schools.
  • All relationships from the original version are in play.
  • Relationships from the original version will not affect eligibility.
  • Characters in "Survivor: The Cursed Islands" are eligible.
  • There will be a thread for confessionals, which I will explain further when the thread is made.
  • Nobody dies in this game.
Who would be interested in this?

I definitely would be interested; I used to be huge on the show, and I'd enjoy getting to play it.

Hiya! This is a minor thing, but the staff would just like to briefly comment on one thing:

"You may use characters from other handlers with either handler's express permission, or if that handler has had no activity within the past six months."

We're uncomfortable with this element, because it allows handlers to use other people's characters without permission. SOTF has a very long history for an RP site, and has the massive turnover that comes with that. The vast bulk of handlers from V1-3 have not been active in six months if you only count logging in as activity; if it's defined as posting, that number goes up even more. We also have a lot of character whose handlers are really hesitant to see them used. This came up a bit in the discussion of Second Chances, but many handlers have inserted themselves or friends into SOTF, and would be uncomfortable seeing them written by other people. There's a big difference between doing a fanfic (which has been established as fine because it's by definition a one-shot thing and is clearly derivative) and actually bringing old characters back for RPing again without permission.

As such, the staff would like to request that lengthy RPs involving past characters please mandate permission from the original handlers. We do know it's a pain in the neck to track them down, but not doing so is in enough of an uncomfortable grey area that we'd rather it not happen.

Apologies for the intrusion, and good luck with your game! :)

Names added.

Adding Simon Telamon and Stephanie Reid (formerly Charlene Norris - I was going to change the name for SC, but wasn't allowed to).

Names added. I still need another ten characters - six women and four men. Remember: ANY character from the main SOTF universe is acceptable (assuming realism).

We can put Jaquilyn on the "reserve" list in case anybody's up for it. I'd actually like to see somebody else take a stab at writing her since i sometimes have difficulty getting i to her head.

And could we maybe up the character limit in a week or so? Not because I want to handle three characters, but because I am very excited to see this get underway.

Okay. Two things are happening, starting now:

  • The minimum required characters is now sixteen, with a possibility of going to twenty contestants.
  • Should there be less than sixteen players by Thursday, the per-handler cap will go to three characters.
