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!

So, as the notice at the bottom of the board mentions, today is SOTF's tenth anniversary. While I now most of us haven't been here nearly that long, and the site's style, location, and focus have shifted notably, a decade of existence for an online RP is still huge.

So, yeah! It's a party in this thread, I guess!

My graduation and the site now have the same anniversary.

That's sort of awesome.

Lots of amazing memories wrapped up here in SOTF. I quite literally grew up with the site and I think it's safe to say I've made some lifelong friends here.

Long may it continue.

Happy birthday SOTF! I've only been on the site for four years, but this site has been such a grand experience. My writing has gotten better, I've met amazing people, and I've been exposed to some wonderful media through it all.

Thanks again for everything, and let's keep chugging along so we can hit more milestone anniversaries.

I have to admit, I feel incredibly old. I'm the last member who's been part of SOTF from the very beginning, feels like a lifetime ago that I was running around with Kai, Dodd, Meg, Chase, Maka, Chad and the rest of the old guard. Especially since unlike, say, Elena, I haven't done a single worthwhile thing IRL in all that time, and I slightly resent having nothing to show for a decade of being on Earth but having been on an RP site for a long time. Not to mention, ten years is like centuries in internet time! We're like Rome or something. I can only name a couple other communities I've seen last ten years or more online, and I've only seen one other RP last as long, which did it by changing its focus pretty drastically and even then mostly because of the same couple people propping up a mostly dead-ish site. That could have been us, but instead we're an incredibly healthy board and community, the odd bumps and squabbles aside, and that's a hell of an accomplishment; I've seen boards that don't last one year, let alone ten, and it's a big accomplishment that even now the site hasn't shown any signs of slowing down. It wouldn't be the same without the membership we've gathered here, the sites that've tried to rip us off have proven that, and you guys are why I keep coming back despite how much I bitch about how old I feel. I think even without SOTF, we'd still be one hell of a community, and that's saying something. I'm glad to have found this place, and to have made the friends here I have, even if I suspect about half of you secretly hate my guts (not counting the ones who openly do so). :P

Also, a clipart cake:

Hiya, jerk! Please don't post until edits have been completed, as doing so causes confusion/messes up the queue.

Like a lot of people have said, I'm also really glad to have found this site. I've made some fantastic relationships and I think improved on my writing a lot. It's been a ton of fun (though I've only been here less than three years) and here's to another decade or more!

Thanks, guys.

We can now enroll SOTF in the fifth grade. Its middle school years will soon be upon us, beware.
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? 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."

It's weird to think that SOTF itself could legally own an own zetaboards account in 3 years and roleplay with us then.

But party time!

it's always neat to be reminded how much of a history this site has.

so weird to think that I was a freshman in high school when I first joined, and now I'm about to go into college.

Happy ten years, everyone! I haven't been active here in such a long time but I still like to pop my head in every few months to read through the latest threads. I'm so happy to see that things are still going incredibly strong and all the new faces that have come along since I've bowed out. You guys are pretty amazing and I'm always glad I was able to be part of this fantastic site.

Here's to another ten awesome years for SOTF. B)
