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!

((Rene Wolfe: pregame start))

Lunch period was awesome. It was a well-deserved break from the endless lectures and quizzes that make up most of the school day, and it let you refuel so that you have enough energy for the rest of the day. Or at least that's how Rene felt about it. There was only one problem, and that was the fact that the food in the cafeteria, frankly speaking, tended to suck.

Fortunately, Rene had a plan in store to counteract that little issue. Two slices of leftover pizza brought from home that, despite being cold, she figured were probably better than whatever was being served out of the cafeteria that day. And judging by what she smelled when she passed by the lunch line, she figured that she was right.

She sat back in her chair and enjoyed her lunch while wondering what it was about pizza that made it almost as good when eaten cold as it was hot. Once she was through with her first slice, crust and all, she looked over at the rest of the table. There were two other girls sitting there, and one of them was playing a DS. Huh. Rene was starting to wish that she had brought her DS. Sure would make the dead time spent waiting for classes to start more interesting. She leaned over to try to start a conversation. It beat just sitting there quietly and waiting for class to start back up.

"Hey, whatcha playing?"

So Penelope was playing Animal Crossing. Eh, Rene never really got the appeal, but she figured that it was kinda like The Sims or American Pie movies in that it was something that was really popular and had tons of fans for reasons that she would never really understand. She was more into Order of Ecclesia lately, and all of her gaming time lately had been spent trying to deal with that freaking giant skeleton at what she sincerely hoped was the end of the latest stage. She hated that thing.

As she mused about possible strategies in her head, shooting each one down for various reasons while working on her second slice of pizza, she completely forgot that there was a conversation going on right next to her. It was when she finished the slice and decided to just look for tips on the fight online that she started paying attention to the rest of the world again, promptly realizing that she had no idea what the other girls at the table were talking about anymore, or if it was even DS-related at all.

Faced with the choice of either abandoning ship entirely or trying to rejoin whatever was going on, she pounced on a brief lull in the conversation and said the first nonspecific phrase that came to mind in hopes of catching back up.

"Cool."

Rene just sat there awkwardly for a moment after everyone left. Come to think of it, maybe she should have tried to say something at one point.

Ow well, water under the bridge now. Class started in five minutes, and she would be damned if she was going to hand in her history homework late. She tossed her lunchbag and went on her way.

((Rene Wolfe continued elsewhere))
