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!

By popular demand of like 3 people, here is the V2 Read-O-Thon. V2 is a bit of the in-between child of SOTF and probably one of the lesser known games. It is also the second smallest game in terms of size.

The rules are simple enough. You post that you want a character and I will give you one randomly from the list below. Read through the character and then post what you thought of them, though that is not mandatory. However, if you could, please let me know if you would or would not recommend the character to readers for the V2 Best Of list. If you were the writer of one of these characters and would not like them to be included, let me know and I will remove them from the list.

You can check out the Best Of list here.

You can also listen to the very special one-time-only podcast of V2 here

Bonus: There's a V2 character generator created by the lovely Fenris the Gossip King to amuse you here

Just finished Carmen and boy was that depressing.

Her bio makes her out to be a sort of queen bee popular mean girl. She has one pregame thread where she's a little menacing, but talks to a fat unpopular girl. It's kind of nice, even though she's still being a bit mean in her thoughts.

In her first thread she meets Andrew Ponikarovsky and they are honestly pretty charming. She puts on an act of being an innocent bimbo to get her to trust him and he does because he's a good guy. As they talk she lets real things about her slip and she starts to wonder if putting on this act even in real life is what causes her to attract men, but also causes them never to stay long. They have a kind of cute moment together and start driving away in a van.

Then Mitusko adopts her. The quality in writing drops and she becomes the porn version of herself. Out of no where she is bending over, propositioning people, licking her lips, talking about what she likes in sex. Gone is whatever depth she might have had before with Andrew. She fools around with Rob (I think it was Rob) and says she doesn't want to go all the way so he calls her a whore and that makes her amused. Great.

She gets killed quickly and suddenly along with two other people in a Mariavel spree kill thread. I'm really disappointed considering how good she started off that she becomes sexed up Mariavel fodder.

Alex Ovechkin is a bizarre waste of time. He's bizarre because he's just an insert of an actual professional athlete and is still a professional athlete with a super flimsy, idiotic reason for being in high school that makes no sense. He's already been through high school in Russia and has a job as a pro-athlete but went to high school "to become better at English" like he couldn't just buy a Rosetta Stone. It's really weird and distracting.

I feel like Dodd realized this was a bad idea because he has 1 pregame post, 3 posts in the game and then promptly goes inactive. He's killed in another Mariavel spree kill thread. There are worse character in SOTF, but so few are just not even worth your time.

Joshua Moore only had a grand total of 3 posts in one thread but his writing is good and his last post in which he dies is nearly a masterpiece that crams an entire life history into one post.

He's a boy originally from Alabama who loves music. There are some hints to what happened in his bio which is all explained in the death post, but he was raised in a religious household and realized he was gay at a young age. His parents take him to a traumatic church experience that tries to pray the gay out of him and when relating this story to a new friend he finds sympathy from him and they fall in love. Through bad luck his family finds out about the relationship and they move from Alabama to New Jersey to the new school (a reason to move that makes sort of sense? WHAT IS THIS?). His old boyfriend is sent to conversion therapy and pretends to be "fixed." Josh calls him one last time and David tells him he'll always love him. Josh can't deal with his feelings of homosexuality conflicting with his parents telling him his preferences are sinful so he punishes himself by vomiting up his food because he feels like he's going to hell. Even so, he starts sleeping with boys and girls to try and fill the void in his heart by David whom he still loves and who loves him, though they can't be together.

He dies, remembering that his parents told him that his bulimia and homosexuality will send him to hell, really believing that he's about to be sent to Hell.

It's a tremendously sad, but quick read that I would recommend.
