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!

Dang, someone drew Carson Baye already?

Nevertheless, toss me a character, if you'd be so kind.

To be perfectly honest, a character like Ric Chee probably wouldn't fly in today's SotF, mostly due to his hallucinations and general insanity. His profile looks a lot like a pre-made psycho, and while he didn't go that path in the game (at least not the kind of psycho that kills people), it still raises a ton of red flags.

Ric only had one pre-game thread, and it consisted of him in the cafeteria, first hallucinating that snake-like demons were guarding Eduardo Trinidad-Villa, then almost getting beaten up by Boxer Carvalho. In general, his behavior in these threads showed what we would later see on the island, a crazy guy whose insanity is his primary trait. Also, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that his stunt involving Boxer's head and the lunch tray belongs in ECW, not a school cafeteria.

Anyways, Ric's island debut takes place in the same thread as v3's famous Neil Sinclair. The two of them hit it off quickly, and Evan Angler joins them. Ric and Neil even sing a little song about how mich they hate Danya, which I admit I enjoyed quite a bit. In addition, we are introduced to "The Spaniard", the voice inside Ric's head that takes the moniker of his former baseball nickname "Super Spaniard". However, The Spaniard doesn't really due much here except for show that it exists.

Ric then does pretty much nothing in his next thread while Neil recruits Nigel Gillespie and Braden Marsh into their group and comes up with the name S.A.D.D. (Students Against Destructive Decisions) for their alliance. They also begin their campaign of smashing up cameras while Ric just watches.

Ric finally does something again in Fade into You, where he is unnerved by Nadine Willowbrook's company and steals away to a bedroom to get some rest. Unfortunately for him, The Spaniard decides to make a reappearance to torment him, resulting in him having a loud outburst. He seems to calm down after Neil visits him, but Nadine's unpleasant personality, drives him to leave their cottage and chase her down while The Spaniard protests.

Ric's final thread begins after he has stupidly gotten himself lost on the Overgrown Trail while searching for Nadine. The Spaniard, who has changed its name to Juan, berates him for his actions while he tries to ignore it. Unfortunately, while Ric argues with Juan, Bobby Jacks arrives on the scene. Bobby gives Ric an ultimatum: keep him down for five seconds, and he can go onward. Ric then proceeds to give Bobby a hell of a fight, and despite having no fighting experience, comes extremely close to defeating Bobby with nothing other than a large stick that he had found on the beach way back on Day 1. However, he gets overzealous after knocking Bobby down, and the infamous boxer pulls out a cheap shot by stabbing him with a scalpel. That was the beginning of the end for Ric, as despite kicking total ass before, his blood loss kept him from taking the fight to Bobby, and he wound up dying as Juan begged him to keep fighting.

Despite being rather bizarre, Ric actually wasn't as bad as I feared that he'd be. Sure, he's a gimmick character, and his gimmick would have no place in v5, but he's one of v3's anomalies that actually works out rather well. Plus, his fight against Bobby was a great note to go out on. All in all, I'd say that he's alright.



Another character, if you please!

Julia Lauper looks like a stereotypical goth at first. She's a loner, she's rebellious, and she's extremely pale. Despite that, her profile is pretty decent. It has some things that would be a bit of a concern these days, and a lot of things could definitely use more explanation, but compared to the likes of Joshua Goodman and Lucy Arber, it's downright sane.

Her first thread is one of the tiniest oneshots I've ever seen, wherein she wakes up in a swamp, looks through her bags, then decides to go to the caves. End thread. If nothing else, it explained what she planned on doing next.

In her next thread, Julia reaches her desired caves, and after musing for a bit about how lovely caves are, she drops a bomb. You see, Julia had always sort of wanted to kill someone. Not only that, she found the idea of joining Danya's crew to be rather amusing! It is at this point that realize I'm reading about a wannabe psychopath. She spends the rest of the thread mentally going over her plans to murder people until Quale Hutchinson mistakes her for a vampire and throws a flashlight at her, which causes everyone else to flee the thread, with Julia herself leaving after Danya declares the caves a DZ.

In her third and final thread, Julia has inexplicably changed from a calculating wannabe-murderer to a paranoid mess. Then Zabriel offers her death rights to Chase, who never claimed them, and goes inactive. Over a month later, Megami takes over and kills her off with Jordan Redfield in a post that, despite being well-written and containing a good fight scene, really emphasizes how drastically her character changed from one thread to the next with no buildup whatsoever.

Overall, I wouldn't give Julia Lauper a passing grade. Her personality on the island differs wildly from thread to thread. She began as a girl contemplating her situation, turned into a misanthropic wannabe assassin, then became a paranoid wreck, all in the span of three threads. This caused reading her story to come off as disjointed and bizarre. Fortunately, Julia was just a speed bump for Zabriel, who has vastly improved and is now doing bigger and better things with Takeshi Yoshikawa in v5.

Another character, if you please.

Since it's been way too long since I got assigned him and I'm not gonna be able to get to his story any time in the near future, I'm gonna have to return Matthew Wittany to the list.
