Hello and welcome to Survival of the Fittest! We're glad that you've taken an interest in our roleplaying forum and we hope that you'll join the carnage and chaos that is SOTF. First of all, I'd like to offer you a brief thank you for reading this introduction. We're always glad to have members who are observant and want to get to know as much as they can about the forum before participating. So, I suppose the first question I'll address is this one: What is SOTF, exactly?

SOTF is a roleplaying forum based heavily off of Koushun Takami's Battle Royale story. There are some quite noticeable differences, however. SOTF has its own unique storyline and unique villains. It is set in America and at present (V4), the students unknowingly set to be abducted and forced into the program are seniors from Bayview Secondary School in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Mr. Danya is SOTF's notorious program leader, and he's been the leading villain in the game since the original Survival of the Fittest V1 took place in 2005. This is our fourth game, and three have already run full course, so we here at SOTF would like to think that we're a pretty strong roleplaying site. In the recent year or so, we've really blossomed from a smaller community into one with a countless array of active members. As it stands, everyone is really friendly, and we're always open to accepting newcomers with open arms.

Some of you may have been familiar with our original forum, located here, and you may be wondering what prompted the change in boards. To put it simply, during the initial stages of V2, we encountered a lot of troubles, namely, that all ideas for the forum required approval from the former head administrator and, unfortunately, her spare time was dwindling to the point that she rarely surfaced to give those approvals. In the interest of keeping the forum alive, we were required to move to a new board and set up a new set of staffers. That was several years ago, and since then we've been going strong, into our third iteration of SOTF on the new(er) board!

We've been settled into this board since 2005, and it's a place we all like to call home. Like I said earlier, we're a great roleplaying community with very helpful staffers and members, and we're always looking for more people to join our ranks and engage in the killfest that is SOTF. That being said, we'd love to have you, so please look over the crucial points in the site (the rules would be a great place to start ;)) and we hope you'll join us for yet another round of Survival of the Fittest! While applications are not currently open for the fourth go-round of SOTF, you can rest assured that there is always something going on at the site, and you can feel free to join us in any of the various activities, AU-roleplays, or even just pop in the chat to say hello.

If you have any questions, please read the FAQ and the rules, and if you're still confused about something, you can feel free to PM any of our staff. They'll be the ones with the red, blue, or aqua-coloured names, and they'll be sure to promptly get back to you!

We'd love to have you, so hopefully you'll enjoy your stay!
