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!

Meanwhile idea; technically the wrong section?

When Meanwhile starts up, I was thinking on kicking things off with a thread that'd be a memorial service for all the kidnapped kids, given at that time they won't know who survived but they will know somewhere between most and all (I'm not ruling out STAR stepping in somehow) of those kids are dead. Families, Meanwhile/pregame-only characters, any would be welcome. Would anyone be interested in joining in?

Are we going to be implementing the thread with the idea like the anti-Sadie thread where people are free to come and go? At some point I'll show up but not any time soon. And when would the date be? I figure there'd be an investigation for a few days at least before any sort of memorial would be formally held.

I'd figure as much. As for the date, hmm. Meanwhile is supposed to be set around the time the tapes come out (so about a couple weeks post-abductions) so maybe nebulously around then?

I'd certainly be interested! This sounds cool. Also, I think the section is fine, for want of somewhere more appropriate. Post-reveal makes the most sense to me for timeline--probably the most interesting narrative possibilities there, too.

Prologue says:
 
The evening of the disappearance a candlelight vigil was held outside of Cochise High School. Even at the event, nobody voiced the one possibility that made sense.


So there is actually an official confirmation that where was a memorial service of sorts! Unless you're thinking of something else?

I'm interested, and I was thinking something like this, too. It's an idea full of possibilities. O:

I missed that, which might make the symbolic funeral redundant? Hmmm.

Staff, would we be allowed to make a Meanwhile thread portraying the vigil?

My take on it (though get confirmation from Deamon as he wrote it) is that vigils are usually "We're praying for their safety," type things (it's pretty common when people are missing or in trouble). At that point, the students would not be known to be dead, so it'd be a bit different. That said, there's certainly some overlap with the idea of a preemptive memorial (as opposed to, say, one after they know exactly who didn't make it). I'm passing the vigil question along to the lounge--just noting that it has been seen!

It's primarily a symbolic funeral, a memorial since they know for a fact most or all of those kids (barring another rescue) are dead as hell. If that clarification helps anyone.

This sounds like a good idea to me. It would really drive home how the community is affected by the SOTF attacks.

Just so everyone is aware.

The candlight vigil held the evening of the disappearance "We're praying for their safety" sort but like it says in the prologue some people thought it was SOTF.

It wasn't a memorial service though, since there was still the hope they were just missing and still alive.

We were discussing this a little in chat and Slam made a suggestion I think is interesting. What would people think about having this thread be the candlelight vigil mentioned in the prologue, and later on we do the service, say around the game's halfway mark? That'd give meanwhile characters more time to react to things and understand the situation as it develops, and I could see the arguments IC that maybe it's premature to hold the service immediately after the abductions are known, while everyone is still raw. Not to mention the logistics involved. Opinions? I'd have to change the post but I haven't written a lot of it yet.

I think that could be fun, especially as it'd offer an opportunity for handlers to come in for the second bit who might not have as much to say at the first one.
