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!

Guns are more fun to write if you know enough about them to understand what horrible, horrible weapons they are. You can also include a lot more pornography descriptive text when using a gun, as opposed to whacking somebody in the shins with a spiked cricket bat until they politely ask you to stop. Or fall over. That too.

The kickback of a gun somehow interfering with an otherwise incredibly easy shot.


Oooh, I did that once. It was a very weedy character firing a shotgun at close-to-medium range, but underestimating the recoil, missing his shot completely, and having his arms thrown out of place.
Actually it takes far longer for recoil to travel back through a shooter's arm than it does for the bullet to exit the barrel. If you have somebody lined up at extremely short range, you will hit them at least once, regardless of how strong the recoil is. The real reason inexperienced shooters miss point-blank shots is because they aren't pulling triggers correctly (most shotguns and pistols have /extremely/ heavy trigger actions to prevent people from shooting themselves in the foot if they have poor trigger discipline), meaning the contraction of their muscles pulls the barrel off-target before the hammer hits the primer of the chambered round/shell.

Yes I am an absolute shooting nazi however could you tell.

Why you gotta be so technical? Me, I'm a hypocrite
It was a more socially-acceptable addiction than Lego.

I think somebody actually /did/ knock themselves over with a shotgun in one of their first posts on the island. I can't remember who it was, though.
