|Survival of the Fittest > Announcements > The Sixth Announcement|
|Posted by: Kaishi Dec 29 2005, 08:14 PM|
| Hello folks, and happy holidays (& New Year)! Danya wishes you all well, so you can continue to raise the bodycount.
There was slight crackling noise as the intercom system turned on.
"Hey kids. Well rested for the next surprise attack? I sure hope not.
This announcement will be done a little differently than others. You can chalk it up to laziness if you want, but I think that this brings a more fun element into the game. More stealth, harder situations, and more crimson...
Cleo Barston, Cydni Pullman, Andrew Mutaeneau, Callum Hadley, and the infamous Jacob Starr have all died to a variety of killers. Ken Mendel, Ian Hargrave, David Jackson, Madelaine Shirohara, and Amanda Jones have died, aswell. Shame, too, about Madelaine. Wouldn't've minded to seen a little more pink. Heh.
The list continues on, to include Fredrik Hughes, Sven Kekule, Kousaka Takeda, Glenn Hughes, and Vince Samsa. Oh, how tragic! Two brothers dead in the same announcement. I may have to shed a tear for that.
We can't forget Jake Driggers, Aaron Bourdon, Satomi Madison, and Shinya Motomura. The last boy had a rather...tasty suicide, if I do say so myself. Take a page out of his book, kiddies.
Now, how much does that leave us with? About forty of you still alive, and around seventy of you dead? You're disappointing me... Let's get this show on the road. You want to meet your families, don't you? There's only one way off the island, and that is to kill the competition! Don't hide like a whiney little coward. That's your ticket to stay on the island, so kill everyone you can! There are awards at the end, I do promise.
The Old Warehouse and the Makeshift Hospital are no longer danger zones. The new ones are the Lookout Point and the River.
Over and out, ducks."
It's all terribly out of order, I know, and I probably forgot some people (when don't I? ). I pulled the names off of the roster forum, so, chances are, if you weren't updated as deceased then you pro'lly aren't on the announcement.
As the subline for the topic says, there's a contest. I can't keep slowing everyone down with this terrorist crap. It's starting to become lame. You shouldn't have to wait so long, so...
Terrorist Intro Challenge!
That's right. You could be the one to write up the introduction for the terrorists. How do they get onto the island? Is it via plane, helicopter? How are they feeling without vocal chords? Any flashbacks to the surgery? Were they even awake for the surgery? You could be the one who decides the terrorists' overall actions!
They say that first impressions spell everything else out. It may not be perfectly true, but it's great to think that you could be the one to have a part in the terrorists, isn't it?
There are some catches and suggestions, though.
* Amber Phillips has to be killed in the introduction.
* The introduction has to be in the Open Field.
* The terrorists could arrive on a helicopter. It's a suggestion.
* I suggest a helicopter crash.
* The staff can not take part in the competition. Sorry, but I'd really like to see the normal members shine without having to listen to people swooning over some of the staffmembers.
* I'll be the one to post the topic in the Open Field, with the winner's name written at the bottom of it. You could request to remain anonymous if you want.
But, there's gotta be a prize. The winner can take his/her pick of -
1. A special viewing of *top secret* SOTF v2 information! Learn somethings and prepare before anyone else can. And you won't be skimped on details with oneliners. You may even get paragraphs of information!
2. A free dice roll exemption pass! These are a little hard to come by, and with another pass, you'll be able to save a worthy character. If you don't use this pass, you can have an EXTRA for SOTF v2. Imagine that, starting out with an one-up on the competition with one more pass than the others.
3. Your own weapon pick! Well, sort of. You can request one of four weapon groups for your first character to have. Shotgun, Pistol, Melee, and Miscellaneous. Your weapon will still be random, but you'll know your category.
The winner can only pick one out of these three.
PM me, do not post them here or anywhere else, your introductory thread. Contest ends January 5th! Expect the winner's post up by the 7th!
Best of luck, and remember to have fun with it. The winner isn't going to be picked just for roleplaying/writing skill, but rather for the most creative and interesting topic. So, good luck, again, and lot's of fun to you.
Dice rolls are going to be happening later on. And this time, no one's getting an extension to start getting killed.

|Wait, so we write the introduction now and PM it to you, right?|
|Posted by: Kaishi Dec 29 2005, 09:16 PM|
|Right-o. Winner gets a fun prize, too.|
|Posted by: Slayer Dec 29 2005, 09:17 PM|
|Alright. I understand.|
|Posted by: Swoosh Dec 29 2005, 09:39 PM|
Woah, that sounded dire. *shivers* XDD
And what a nifty idea! I'm looking forward to the finished result already.
Just a question though, if the winner picks the option of knowing about SOTF v2, are they at liberty to leak it to the rest of us? *grins*
But wheee. This is gonna be awesome.
|Posted by: Kaishi Dec 29 2005, 09:56 PM|
|If they choose to leak the information, then they'd best be prepared to face the consequences. It's called top secret for a reason, my dear Swoosh.|
|Posted by: Swoosh Dec 29 2005, 10:29 PM|
Again, dire much? XDD
And aaaaw, I wanted to know *cries in corner*
|Posted by: d0ddi0slave Dec 30 2005, 04:36 AM|
| Awww...poop. Staff can't compete.
|Posted by: LadyMakaze Dec 30 2005, 05:13 AM|
Dagnabbit, WHY?! *screams in fury and claws at her own skull* .....
...I feel like killing someone. *advances on a crowd of innocents with a flamethrower in hand*
|Posted by: Slayer Dec 30 2005, 05:50 AM|
| I'm sitting out. I know I won't win, and really V2 shouldn't be so different that the info would be needed. I feel like playing fair this time (so there goes the weapon prize) and I never wanted Antonio or Jason to win (though I'm not sure about Jack), so that means I'd have no use for the prizes. I could always talk someone into swapping for Jack if he's rolled anyway.
Edit: You forgot Satomi Madison.
|Posted by: riserugu Dec 30 2005, 05:53 PM|
| (watches Maka pwn the innocent with her flamethrower)
But, Aw indeed on the no-go for us staff members getting to write an intro.
|Posted by: Slayer Dec 30 2005, 07:46 PM|
|Satomi Madison was left out of the announcement.|
|Posted by: Kuze Dec 30 2005, 08:19 PM|
yes she is Slayer
|Posted by: Slayer Dec 30 2005, 08:23 PM|
|Must've missed it. It was about 3:00 in the morning when I first read that.|
|Posted by: Queen Asshat Dec 31 2005, 05:51 PM|
|I wrote something, for all it's worth. Good luck to the rest of you, I really hope I get some competition...|
|Posted by: Kaishi Jan 5 2006, 12:05 AM|
| By the looks of it, we won't be getting anymore entries soon. I'm extending the deadline and allowing everyone who enters a small prize! Winner gets the small prize and their pick of one of the three choices.
New Deadline: January 7th. I'll post when it's closed, then the winner's thread a while later (sometime during the 8th).
|Posted by: Slayer Jan 5 2006, 12:27 AM|
|So now you get a prize and your own pick of the three normal prizes just for entering the contest?|
|Posted by: Kuze Jan 5 2006, 12:51 AM|
| i think that only the Winner gets a pick of one of the 3
|Posted by: Slayer Jan 5 2006, 01:09 AM|
|Never mind, just reread. What kind of prize would the small prize be? A lesser version of the three or something else?|
|Posted by: d0ddi0slave Jan 5 2006, 03:19 AM|
|Can staff enter?|
|Posted by: Kaishi Jan 5 2006, 03:24 AM|
| No, staff may not enter. Not even I can.
You'll find the prize out when you enter. Could be something small, could be something humongous.
|Posted by: Slayer Jan 5 2006, 03:31 AM|
|Wha...? If you said small prize (just for entering), how can there be a chance that it'll be a humongous prize?|
|Posted by: Kaishi Jan 5 2006, 04:54 PM|
|You tell me when you get the prize.|
|Posted by: Queen Asshat Jan 8 2006, 12:57 AM|
|And I believe the contest ends today...|
|Posted by: Kuze Jan 8 2006, 01:50 AM|
|IT does!?! shit....im too late..unless shes still taking applications till midngiht.|
|Posted by: Kaishi Jan 8 2006, 03:34 AM|
|Till midnight, but it seems as if there won't be anymore applicants.|
|Posted by: Kaishi Jan 8 2006, 05:00 AM|
| Competition Closed.
Can't say I'm particularly happy getting only one entrant. Maybe next time I'll have to open it up for staff, huh?
Winner is the Slackman. Pick a prize, any prize. Your thread will be up soon. Contact me on AIM when you want your entrant prize.
|Posted by: Queen Asshat Jan 8 2006, 05:09 AM|
|I kinda feel bad for winning by default, but I suppose that is the only way I could win a competition on this board . Part of me wants to know the information about SOTF v2, but I am such a blabber mouth that I wouldn’t be able to keep it a secret for long… If possible can my prize involve you telling everyone the secret information? Since I don't really deserve to win this...|
|Posted by: LadyMakaze Jan 8 2006, 05:13 AM|
| I guess another problem is that a bunch of people around this time of year are busy/away at the moment. But anyways....
CONGRATS SLACKER! ^.^
|Posted by: Kuze Jan 8 2006, 02:25 PM|
| eh I wanted to but some strange Chinese guy on Skype keeps calling me when im about to type it
|Posted by: Kaishi Jan 8 2006, 04:58 PM|
| "Dirty filths of all ages, direct your attention over to the Open Field. Seems like your good friends have http://s10.invisionfree.com/SurvivalOfTheFittest/index.php?showtopic=726. Give them a warm welcoming, just for me, okay? They're just like you kids, only a half step up on the dirt scale. They've been thrown onto the island, forced to kill who knows how many other people. Boo hoo...
"Their arms are a little better, I must say that, but they're following all of your same rules. Except for this little one...
"Kill one of them, and you just may have a ticket off of the island. Yes, you heard me right. Killing one of them is like killing all the rest of the kids here. A possible way off the island! Awesome, no?
"Talk to you tomorrow!"
Dice rolls coming soon!
|Posted by: Swoosh Jan 8 2006, 05:38 PM|
|Oooh! *claps hands in excitement*|
|Posted by: guitarjack87 Jan 8 2006, 06:32 PM|
| Damn you doing this with me not around. I totally would have done it.
|Posted by: Queen Asshat Jan 8 2006, 07:01 PM|
|You know what... I have decided I am going to take the weapon prize. I have thought out a character to much to have him die because he got a plastic hammer or something... so I guess I will start researching on shotguns .|
|Posted by: Slayer Jan 8 2006, 07:29 PM|
|Interesting plot twist, this'll surely get a lot of the students fighting the terrorists instead of each other though. Might even see some "unlikely alliances" sprout up just for that purpose. Also, what would happen if one were to kill all three (unlikely, but bear with me here)?|
|Posted by: Kaishi Jan 8 2006, 08:17 PM|
| Danya'd hug j00.
EDIT: haha, but seriously, if you'd kill all three then you'd pretty much expect to be taken off the island.
|Posted by: Slayer Jan 8 2006, 08:37 PM|
|Greater risks mean greater rewards, I guess.|
|Posted by: Bloody_Fists Jan 10 2006, 07:03 PM|
|Who's handling the terrorists then?|
|Posted by: guitarjack87 Jan 11 2006, 01:49 AM|
|I'm pritty sure that is kai's beast.|
|Posted by: Bloody_Fists Jan 11 2006, 10:25 AM|
|Well good luck to kai, Hope you can handle all the killing! XD|
