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!

Some of the questions get weirdly specific, though. "If your character's maternal grandfather deliberately destroyed your character's favorite pair of underwear, how would xe react?"

I found this post for anyone who would like some pointers on striking that balance between "I've been in ten fights but never got a scratch" and "I should be dead, how is this possible".

So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."

Here is a good site if you've got difficulty coming up with names. Enter a name you like and it'll come up with a list of male, female, and unisex names that are related somehow.

This might seem a little silly/obvious but if you ever need synonyms this is your best friend.

I just came across an interesting infographic that tells you what happens to your body after you die. I thought to bring it here, since it would be useful to know in case people want to write scenes with dead bodies.

Here it is. Note that it goes into detail, so... probably not a good idea to read it if you're planning to eat or are squeamish.

I have read an interesting blog post about the linguistic mechanics that make up modern internet horror, such as those of Welcome to Night Vale.

I'll link it here, because I do find it interesting to consider for we all are writers.

Looked through this and it would have saved me a lot of research time in past versions. It doesn't have absolutely everything (notably there's nothing specifically on getting shot) but what it does cover it does in quick, clear terms. It's very much worth giving a look now that the game is in motion.

One for the Meanwhile folks:

Wondering what the weather was like in Kingman on a specific day? You can find out! The link hits June 1st, but you can go through basically whenever if you're the sort of person who's nitpicky about that stuff. The week the news hit was pretty hot.
