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 like Toben's suggestion for the reasons he outlines. I also think having four gives handlers more individual security; if you choose to run a fourth, it means that it's less risky to hero, and easier to hold your hero for later. Running fewer characters in theory protects you, but in V5, three of the first four rolls hit 1-character handlers and knocked them out (though admittedly one was already inactive), and in V6 had roughly the same results.

I also agree with Yugi that raising the cap is inferior to getting new people, but I think doing that is a much more complicated and challenging solution. Internet forum RPs are less popular than in the past, and adoption has a lot of limits. If the intent there is to enable more people to play, then you'd need to hand characters who were already in play off to them, so there's still a cap. If you give them characters before the game starts, then they could still play with their own kids if they so chose.

Basically I think we should keep an eye on the potential size of V7, but I definitely think it should be considered if it looks to be much smaller than V6 (say, under 100).
V5: Cut Short


V6: Broken Down


V7: Unprepared
