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!

Jerry hadn't been hard to find. Trav had just followed all the yelling.

((Travis Lynch continued from What if I told you...))

Trav's lungs burned from the duration of the run but it was a good sensation. He hadn't been able to fully exert himself during his time on the island so the run had been good for him. Sadly the circumstances made everything worse. All Trav could think about was how guilty Jerry was.

Then he saw him, standing on the shoreline. Trav dropped his pack off his shoulder and increased his pace, breaking into a full sprint.

Jerry had killed Toby, shown no remorse and then tried to run from it. The games were over.

His footsteps were loud as some of the rocks shifted. Jerry turned to see him and Trav saw his eyes widen like a deer in the headlights. He tried to back up but soon his feet found the water. Trav dropped down as he got close and slammed his shoulder into Jerry's gut, wrapping his arms around his legs. With a grunt of effort Trav lifted Jerry up and carried him further into the water before slamming him down in the surf with all of his weight.

Trav felt the ice cold wave crash over his head and face as well as the taste of salt in his mouth. He guessed he had finally made it to the ocean. Unfortunately he had no real time to enjoy that as Jerry was squirming underneath him.

All things considered the landing off the takedown had gone better than expected. Jerry hadn't managed to shoot or stab him which meant Trav had time to work, he didn't know for how long that would be the case or how well Jerry would be able to defend himself but he in a perfect world Jerry wouldn't get that chance. They weren't sparring and Trav wasn't being nice, this was a real fight. Jerry was trying to base up and push himself out from under him. Trav leaned back for a split-second as another wave crashed into his face and felt Jerry turning. Trav obliged and crossed his right leg across Jerry's body, fluidly passing straight over into side control.

He pressed the forearm of his left arm into the side of Jerry's face and used his right hand to hold the back of Jerry's leg. Then he started slamming knees into Jerry's gut.

"Motherfucker!" Trav yelled as he pulled his left arm back instinctively.

His right hand released Jerry's leg as Trav turned his body and punched Jerry straight in the side of the head. He felt a warmer liquid run down his left arm where Jerry had drawn blood.

The bite stung as the water washed over it, snapping Trav back into focus making sure he didn't lose himself to the red mist that had threatened to descend. Instead he just punched Jerry in the head again and was greeted with a loud pop as one of his fingers was dislocated or broken he didn't know which.

Luckily adrenaline had taken over and Trav didn't immediately register it. He just switched to using his elbow, and aiming for Jerry's nose.

One moment of hesitation was all it took for Jerry to be able shoot.

Two bullets, one in the chest and one in the gut. It was the worst pain Trav had ever experienced. A burning pain from a cut turned up to eleven. He stumbled back and for a moment it looked like he was going to be able to stay standing. But then he fell, his aching legs unable to hold his body up. The sea waves lapped up around his legs, which would have mattered if he wasn't dying.

Trav stared up at the sky as he thought about Toby and Cass. He knew he didn't have long, breathing was becoming increasingly difficult so he guessed Jerry had hit a lung. So in the end he had managed to not be there to make sure Toby was safe and now he was going to leave Cass alone on the island.

Good job.

He coughed as he tried to draw in a breathy but failed. His vision was starting to fade and there didn't seem to be much time left. Still he thought that at least there were worse ways to die than contemplating your own failures. Self-reflection wasn't much use to him anymore though.

At least he had met Cass. That was the one good thing. Maybe the only good thing that had happened since he woke up...and he had been in the sea he guessed. That was pretty cool too.
