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!

Maria had just experienced the worst nightmare of her life.

((G044 Maria Cucinotta: V6 Start))

And then she had woken up to a far, far worse one.

Her fingers immediately went to her throat, painted fingernails scratching at the black metal that wrapped around her throat. It felt like hours that went by as she scrabbled for purchase in order to pry it away from her neck, but to no avail.

SOTF. She'd heard of it of course, seen various threads and clips on the sketchier parts of the internet, but she'd never payed it any attention. She'd never be in it, no need to give her nightmares by watching some Fucked Up Shit^TM.

The man had said something about supplies, and sure enough, beneath the moth-eared bed she had awoken on, was a bag with 'G044' written on it. She was a number to them, she realised, no more no less. A number that wouldn't make it anywhere without a weapon.

She unzipped the bag and looked through it. Food, a first aid kit, water... And what felt like a cloth covering. Pulling it out, she removed the almost shawl-like covering to find a sword. A long, curved, and when she gave it an experimental swing, very well balanced sword. The note called it a shamshir. If she ever made it out of here she could find out what it was used for originally.

She pulled the cap off of a bottle of water and took a few sips. If she remained calm and level headed, she might be able to get through this. Her hands, which she hadn't noticed had been shaking, had slowly calmed down.

The scream that came next nearly caused her to jump out of her skin, and she immediately held the sword towards the sound. Could people be... 'Playing,' already? The scream sounded masculine though...

She wasn't going to leave some poor soul to die. It might get her killed, but until there was no other way forward but becoming a sociopathic murderer, she was not going to turn into a rabid killer. Slowly, she reached for the door handle, praying that the scream had been from a realisation of the situation, and not some one being dismembered next door.

You don't win the game of death by dying first. The name's a little misleading.

Not likely to be dismemberment then, which was always good. She vaugley rcognised the voice, and she came to the split des ion that, for now, having another pair of eyes would be a good idea. she banged the hilt of the sword against the wall separating them, and called out "Hey! Coming in, don't... Do whatever it is your thing can do, aight?"

Judging by the cursing, the clattering and the loud noises that did not sound like gunshots, it sounded like the weapon he had was pretty damn complicated, or he was just a moron. Pushing open the door, he gave a soft knock before giving it a weak push from the side. If he tried to get the jump on her he'd have wasted the chance, and she would be in the defensive position.

Fingers crossed the first person she met wouldn't take a potshot at her to lower the competition.

Well, no flying bits of metal was coming at her, so she assumed that she was in the clear for now. It had taken her all of three seconds to realise that her sword had basically no point though, so she kept it low, whilst still being in a position to do something.

She stepped into the room, eyeing up the boy I front of her. Blonde, tall, probably a good six or so feet, and looked utterly overdressed for a science trip in an azure dress shirt. The weapon he was holding looked very strange, almost like a grooved hockey stick, but thinner and looked to be even more ridiculously useless for throwing things. Unless of course it had some hidden advantage that she was unable to discern, she should be fine.

To give credit where it was due though, she agreed with his sentiments. Both of the leaving without blood spilt, or hell, working together to make sure that the immediate future wasn't full of both of their blood would be a marvellous thing. Although, judging by the red drips on the weapon, he had already lost a little bit of blood, so there you go.

Those cuts though... Sure, it could be an older cut, but since when did those bleed? The weapon looked blunt, no way to slice anyone, so where had he gotten those? Her eyes flitted around, the gouge in the wall becoming obvious. Visibly scared, she raised up and sword and held it across her chest, hoping that whatever it was that thing could to, it would give her a change to either run or attack.

Maybe both.

Just as this thought had appeared in her head, she heard a scream. Jumping backwards, she became aware of another girl who had managed to approach unseen. "Fuck, fuck fucking shit fuck!" She screamed. Sure, it wasn't the most verbose thing to say, but there was few situations in which a stream of expletives didn't make some kind of impact.

She backed off, so that both of them were cleartly visible to her. The boy worried her, the gouge and the weapon worried her more. The girl currently coughing her lungs out worried her slightly less however, so she stayed put. With any luck it was asthma or something and she'd be fine after a few deep breaths.

"Ok, maybe we should... Calm down?" The words came out at a squeak, much higher than she'd thought her voice had ever had the capacity to reach, let alone say entire sentences in. Her hands were shaking, her heart was pounding, and she was very, very close to doing something she might regret. Gritting her teeth to seem a bit more in control, she followed up with a "please!?"

Ok, that... That was not the effect of any asthma she knew. She turned to the boy, Noah was his name she recalled. They had known of each other, but never really progressed past the acquaintance stage.the kind of person you nodded to in the corridor, maybe said 'Hey' to occasionally.

And the weapon had a sawblade in it. Judging by the gouge in the wall, it could launch it somehow, and she really didn't want to be on the receiving end of a flying sawblade. "Maybe, we should all put the weapons down..." Her voice jumped a bit, despite her trying to keep it level, "Starting with sawblade-catapult-whachimajigger over there..."

If he put that down, then she could go and help the girl. As it was, she took a step back to prevent the puddle of vomit pooling over her shoes, which would probably make her hurl to be honest. "Keep it together Maria, keep it together..."

Jesus fuck this was turning into a mess. Far too many people were here, and the area was far to small for her liking. If any of the newcomers had a gun, then this entire building could become a bloodbath very quickly. The logical solution was to get the fuck out of this place, and fast.

She slid the sword into one of the belt-loops that she never used for belts, jumped over the growing puddle of regurgitated... Whatever, she wasn't too keen on looking twice at it, pushed past the crying girl and the new one with out saying a word, and as soon as she was out the door she sprinted as fast as she could away from the situation.

It wouldn't be good to stay there for any longer.
