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!

"I'm not going to stay here much longer, but while I'm here I should probably check out the layout of this building in case I need to come back in a hurry. It shouldn't take that long."

...At least, that was what Bernadette had told herself when she passed on taking the stairs down and instead continued along the upper floor. She hadn't really been paying too much attention when she had first arrived, so what she had thought to be the entire building was apparently just one wing.

Well, she'd probably have been finished scoping out the area by now if she hadn't been taking it slow. No point in needlessly agitating her condition, but on top of that it didn't seem like a bad idea to be a bit cautious anyways. Luckily, aside from that girl who had come into her room and left just as promptly, she hadn't run into anybody yet.

Unfortunately, even if she had been staying out of things, it didn't mean that things weren't happening on their own. There'd been about twenty names on the announcements so far, and Bernadette didn't think that it was particularly likely that tomorrow morning wouldn't continue the pattern. This was a madhouse, and the rest of the inmates weren't going to sit by quietly just because Bernadette wasn't feeling well and wanted to hit the snooze button a few more times.

Bernadette turned upon hearing somebody just outside the door. Coleen Reagan stood just beyond the doorway, looking back at her.

"Coleen. Good to see you're doing well."

In retrospect, the fact that she had been checking out the offices themselves was probably a bit of a poor decision. Even if she spent just a minute walking into the room and glancing around, that still added up over time and was probably a pretty big contributor to her slow pace. It didn't really seem worth it to risk someone coming up and cornering her on the off chance that this office might have something useful in it.

Well, the person "cornering" her was Coleen, so it's not like she was being trapped. Bernadette had something of the impression that if she wanted to leave she could just walk towards the door and Coleen would flinch back from her path. Not exactly the most confrontational girl, and while there was always the chance she'd gone nuts from being on this island, it didn't seem very likely at the moment.

At the very least, Bernadette couldn't remember hearing Coleen's name in any announcements. And it wasn't likely that she'd be willingly tagging along with anybody who had.

Bernadette forced herself to relax a bit, leaning back against the outside wall. No need to get all tensed up when she was still recovering from the past few days.

"So, what brings you here? Looking for something in particular?"

"Things've been fine, I guess," Bernadette responded. "Er, I guess it's actually been really shitty, but given the circumstances..."

It'd been absolutely terrible, even given the circumstances. But really, Bernadette's health issues were something that these two didn't really need to know about, so that part about her spending a few days curled up on the floor was going to be kept to herself.

"Not sure I want to spend another night here, either. Just wanted to check the whole place out before looking elsewhere."

Bernadette hesitated for a moment on whether or not she wanted to take that line of thought further. She'd really, really be more comfortable with someone she knew watching her back while she slept. Coleen wasn't really close enough of an acquaintance to inspire that kind of trust... but then again, she wasn't someone Bernadette had any reason to distrust, either. Arthur was more of a wild card, but there was a limit to how paranoid one could be. At the very least, the two of them seemed safer than being alone.

"You two open to the idea of an additional roommate?"

Well, for better or worse, it looked like Bernadette was part of a group now. She followed along after the other two, leaving behind the dilapidated office.

She wasn't quite sure how to feel about Coleen's assertion that they would be moving around quite a bit. Actually, scratch that; she liked it. Really, it did sound like a better idea than sitting in one place. Unfortunately, it was just a matter of whether it could be done, whether Bernadette would be able to keep pace with the others. In the worst case scenario, one where she became more or less dead weight...

Well, for the time being the plan would just have to be "Hope things don't get to that point."
