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!

Kimiko could hear the cursing from where she was sat. She had been studiously ignoring it; instead calming herself by taking inventory of the contents of her bag. Carefully unpacking everything and laying it out. After assessing all the resources available to her she had repacked it. Now as the swearing reached its loudest Kimiko decided to move.

G015 - Kimiko Kao: Start

Slowly and carefully entering the garage, Kimiko scanned the area for the source of the commotion. Whoever it was; they were clearly agitated. The knock-on effect of that meant they could be dangerous. Kimiko was trying extremely hard to keep everything in order and logical in her head. She was playing images of potential scenarios over in her head in an attempt to try and figure out what she would do.

The fact she even had to do such a thing made her angry. She hated anything that imposed upon a persons freedom and the situation she found herself in was the ultimate example of that. The cold metal around her neck reminded her of that. She was collared like a dog and if she didn't do what her masters wanted they would put her down.

But on the other hand...she loved her freedom. Her personal freedom was one of the most important things to her. She already felt backed into a corner by the situation she was in. She wanted the collar off, she wanted to go home, she wanted to live. Could she make that sacrifice though? Abandon her beliefs for a shot at freedom?

A phrase she had heard at the temple once forced its way to the front of her thoughts.

Make your life what you want it to be now. The rest will follow.

It concerned her.

Seeing the other girl Kimiko froze. She knew of Sandra, but not well. Not wanting to startle her Kimiko instead gently knocked on the wall.

Her lack of speech was a serious issue now.

Her hands were raised in a placating gesture, she didn't mean Sandra any harm. In all honestly the girl already seemed to be hurt. Unfortunately Kimiko had not way to communicate with Sandra beyond basic gestures. The question Sandra asked did give her pause for thought.

What did she want?

Sandra had backed up against the wall. Kimiko herself stayed where she was, she felt so calm yet had no idea why. She didn't know what she wanted. She was unable to talk to Sandra, and the other girl was distressed.

Her eyes passed over the scene in front of her, a pot lid lay in front of Sandra, it must have been her weapon. Kimiko had something equally useless, a megaphone. It was a cruel joke. She was trying not to think about it though. She planned on figuring out a use for it, until then it was carefully stored in her bag. As for what she was going to do Kimiko didn't know. She gave Sandra the most honest answer she could, tapping her colour twice with her left hand and shrugging.

Mind racing with ideas of what to do Kimiko slowly lent against the wall and waited for Sandra's response.

Kimiko shrugged and shook her head at Sandra's question. She was in the same boat, not sure what to do or what path to take. She knew there were more paths available to her than she was aware of right now but she could only clearly make out two. Neither of them offered a complete explanation of what to do but they seemed to be the smartest choices. The saying rolled around in Kimiko's head again, she frowned as she considered a possible interpretation of it.

Finding friends seemed like a good idea but for some reason Kimiko didn't want to commit herself to that path of action. Not for a little while longer at least. She wanted time to assess her situation and her options. To figure out what she wanted to do. What she wanted was a plan.

She didn't have the makings of one yet.

Kimiko nodded at Sandra and wobbled her hand then made a wide circle with her index fingers, hoping that Sandra got the idea that she was going to stay and have a look around.

So Sandra left. Kimiko had expected it. She was also glad it had happened. Consoling the other girl wasn't something she wanted to do when she was having a stressful enough time figuring out what she wanted to do. As selfish as it sounded she didn't want to add someone else's problems onto that.

Instead Kimiko occupied herself with searching what the map told her was the vehicle depot. To say she didn't find anything useful would have been an understatement. The place had been scrubbed clean of anything that could have been considered remotely useful. There were no tools and nothing inside the vehicles themselves that would be useful. Instead all Kimiko found was dust and weeds, signs of a place long since abandoned. The only activity the place had seen in at least ten years was going to either be the terrorists or her classmates, at least that was her assumption.

Eventually Kimiko found herself back in the office rooting through the filing cabinet. There was nothing, which she had expected; searching the filing cabinet had been a long shot anyway. Then she looked up and saw what had been in front of her face all along.

The office window.

She could use the glass.

Picking up the chair that was at the desk Kimiko raised it and slammed it into the window...which didn't budge. Gritting her teeth Kimiko tried again, and again. Her commitment was rewarded with the sound of glass shattering. In the context she found herself in, it was like music to her ears. Dropping the chair to one side with a dull thud, Kimiko starting rooting around in her bag for her first aid kit, upon finding it she placed it on the desk and cracked it open. She knew exactly what she was looking for, this was why she had been so meticulous in looking through everything she had been given. She took a roll of bandages out and began looking through the shards she had made.

Her requirements for the shards she wanted were simple, they had to have a sharp edge for stabbing or slashing and preferably a wider base to give her something to hold onto. She was lucky enough to find exactly what she wanted. Carefully picking it up she bound the part she was using as her base in layers of the bandages she had been supplied with. Once she was done she had a weapon that was perfect for stabbing. She wasn't proud of the fact she had made it, but she needed something that wasn't the megaphone. There was another smaller piece that she also took and prepared. That one was stuffed in her bag.

As for what was left Kimiko systematically stomped on them until they had broken apart into smaller less usable pieces. She didn't want anyone else using the glass, she couldn't guarantee that they wouldn't use it to attack someone or for their own gain.

Once everything was done Kimiko allowed herself to sit on the chair, which she had needed to set up again, and take a drink of her water. She turned her makeshift dagger over in her hand contemplating what it meant for her.

After a while she left. She was no closer to figuring it out.

((G015 - Kimiko Kao continued in Prepare to Burn))
