Survival of the Fittest
Survival of the Fittest is a Battle Royale based roleplaying site. The premise of the game is simple: you are a student who, along with the rest of your class, has been thrown onto an island, fitted with an explosive collar, issued a weapon, and given the ultimate ultimatum: kill or be killed. Survival of the Fittest, more commonly known as "SOTF", differs from its inspiration in that unlike most BR-oriented roleplays, SOTF has its own unique storyline, unique characters, and a whole plethora of unexpected happenings. Interested yet? You should be. Battle Royale never got this extreme.
In January 2018, Version 6 concluded. After eleven days of fighting to survive, Boy #1 Min-jae Parker outlasted Girl #10 Fiyori Senay, Boy #8 Nate Turner, and Girl #31 Candice Banks to become the winner of Cochise High School's ordeal. The V6 epilogue is in-progress; stay tuned for updates!
