| One hundred and twenty students starting.
Ninety students dead.
Thirty students remaining.
Fourteen killers surviving.
Three terrorists lurking.
One winner allowed.
Who will reign victorious?
Survival of the Fittest has really gone a long way. From one liner, slapped together posts to lengthy reads. From a death there, to a death here and everywhere! We've really, all as a team, gone far. Too far, in fact, to let the site be held back by inactive characters. I know that there's a reason for everything, but we're beginning to reach the Top 15 point, when we've really got to be on top of our game.
I was going to do a six person roll. Then, I realized (with the help of my good buddy Adam) that there are quite a few characters that haven't posted in ages, making them, unfortunately, inactives. It would be unfair to do a roll and have all the active characters get killed off, leaving behind an inactive to suddenly get active again just in time to claim their win. A scenario like that doesn't play easy in my head, so let's avoid something like that happening!
Fourteen inactives, huh? Subtracting that number from the thirty that are still alive leaves behind sixteen. A little more than our current goal of fifteen lively students! Once we've hit that number, good things'll start to happen, betch'yer right ear on that!
The list may be a little outdated, though, and I'll take fall for that. If you're going to yell at anyone, then I'm your screaming bag.
If there isn't a post by the midnight of March 18th, 2006 (that's the 12 AM that makes the 19th day of March), then the characters listed above will either a] be claimed by anyone for a nice little NPC death, or b] adopted by someone waiting to participate in Survival of the Fittest. If you want to, you may hand over your character for adoption in this thread. I'm sure that there are people out there waiting for a glorious spot in the competition!
Fair warning about adopting. It's out of my control if the adoptee screws up your character(s). Keep that in mind before you start wanting cheese with your whine.
It'd be great if anyone who has already posted with their character posts in this topic and lets me now. I'll gladly cross your name off the list for you!
Alright! Now that we've got everything covered up all nicely, let's go out and shoot the crap out of the kids that are left! Yar!

|Looks like all the inactives, so killing them will finish the attempt to [Emperor Palpatine impression]wipe them out...all of them[/Emperor Palpatine impression] (sorry, couldn't resist).|

Man, why, oh WHY could I so picture Palpatine so perfectly right there?

| I ripped one of his lines from Episode III and altered it to fit. Text-based photoshopping, pretty much.
"Every last Inactive Character is now an enemy of the Republic!"

|woah woah woah hold the phone! Jeremy Torres is NOT inactive! I check this site every day, the only reason I havn't posted in a while is because the people I am currently relying on to RP with "Kaishi and Toukan" Havn't been posting, but Jeremy Torres is definately alive and well!|
|Posted by: Kuze Mar 10 2006, 12:15 PM|
| Yeah, I should have a post for Heather and Eh-Sun sometime this weekend
But if PEri and Steven dont post I'd like to just like to Cliam them now
|Posted by: Toukan Mar 10 2006, 01:00 PM|
| Theseus, I posted and I'm waiting around for Ryan Torres (Kaishi) to post.
In other news, I'm done with scholarship stuff so I should be back for a while. ^__^

| *grins* pwnt Kai XDDD
I like the idea of giving the inactives to new people. Just wanted to say that.
|Posted by: d0ddi0slave Mar 10 2006, 05:56 PM|
| Kuze 'ya can't claim people before they even post.
Once the deadline passes, then we shall know what to do with everyone.
To those of you who have been labelled inactive though - don't take it personally, it's rather just that we've looked back through the threads and people who haven't been posting actively have been tossed in here.
Sorry for any mix-ups.
But a little...added-point, after this deadline, those that wanted to keep their characters - let's all make sure that we're all actively moving it along. I know it's getting stagnant in some places, but...as Kai said, this is the place we need to start getting down to business.
|Posted by: Bloody_Fists Mar 10 2006, 08:54 PM|
Im going to post soon and so will peri. And No. Kuze for the last time you cant claim them.
|Posted by: Slayer Mar 10 2006, 09:35 PM|
|How could he post "soon" if he's never online anymore?|
|Posted by: Bloody_Fists Mar 10 2006, 10:04 PM|
|To be fair he's had a lot of college stuff to deal with like revising and exams, and if he cant make the deadline ill post for him, because im sure he doesnt want peri to just be killed of.|
|Posted by: Swoosh Mar 10 2006, 10:18 PM|
Aiiyah. If I hear that excuse one more time
|Posted by: Slayer Mar 10 2006, 10:46 PM|
|Well if he'd actually do anything instead of bitching about being inactive (this goes for Kuze and Theseus too, they've had opportunities to post but refused, but now they whine because they're considered inactive) he wouldn't be considered so.|
|Posted by: Theseus Mar 10 2006, 11:18 PM|
|ok Slayer, my character Jeremy is at the small house and I had to wait until Kaishi, our administrator to reply because it was crucial to my story. I'm sorry but I really don't see much of a plausible oppurtunity to post until Kaishi comes back. Sorry if I sound mean or rude but I just had to say that, and I'm not whining I'm considered inactive, because I know the list isn't like official so yeah, and I know Kaishi knows why I havn't posted.|
|Posted by: ZigZaggerty Mar 10 2006, 11:37 PM|
|I also like the idea of adopting inactive characters. Now, I just have to sit...and wait...|
|Posted by: asano Mar 11 2006, 01:22 AM|
| Just to inform you all, I'll be chatting with Taka about...well, Taka. I have an idea already formed for her, if she lets me. So, yeah.
Heads up. *waits for Taka to come online*
|Posted by: Swoosh Mar 11 2006, 02:03 PM|
|Slayer, could you tone it down just a little? Seriously.|
|Posted by: LadyMakaze Mar 11 2006, 05:48 PM|
| Dodd and I got some stuffs to take care of Chance, who, I have to admit, is WAAAAAY overdue. Sorry for that folks. ^^;
...*falls over* Stupid assignment deadlines...
|Posted by: Kaishi Mar 11 2006, 07:39 PM|
No need to sound all pissy. No one here was whining about being inactive, or, in you're words "bitching about" it. Everyone has their reasons, I know that, and that's why I made the deadline as far away as it is. If anything, people are just giving their reasons for being inactive and/or that they will be posting. There isn't anything to worry about, v2 will come soon enough for us all.
|Posted by: Kuze Mar 11 2006, 08:30 PM|
| posted with Eh-Sun and Heather today, Fuck Yeah!
|Posted by: Slayer Mar 11 2006, 10:59 PM|
Looked like Kuze was doing his share of it, and Theseus all but yelled about it. I agree I was a bit harsh though, just got pissed off.

|Posted as Peri and Dorian..So game on! o.o Kinda thought maybe Dorian could be the quiet hidden away guy everyone thinks is going to win but has done nothing in the game except for hide..Appear at the last minute and beat someone to death. Well anyway postness and Im back to regular posting.|
|Posted by: Slayer Mar 12 2006, 11:48 PM|
|What about Michael? You have him too, remember.|
|Posted by: MismatchedEyes Mar 13 2006, 03:38 PM|
|You make a good point and itll be done sometime today, Sorry for the inconvenience?|
|Posted by: MismatchedEyes Mar 13 2006, 11:01 PM|
|Posted as Michael in the school.. just made up a story of him running after his group of friends but getting lost lame I know but what you gonna do?|
|Posted by: MooCow Mar 14 2006, 10:04 PM|
|Elsie is active... sorry I just haven't been able to post all week i've been grounded with no sign of when that'll let up. I'll be in touch... btw I call one of the inactives for Clemence she desperately needs a kill.|
|Posted by: d0ddi0slave Mar 14 2006, 10:06 PM|
|An idea - why don't you just get her ti kill Aiden? Then you won't have to wait.|
|Posted by: MooCow Mar 14 2006, 10:33 PM|
|I've promised him to Kuze! And Sephy and Kuze are gonna write the death scene I think so I would but I can't!|
|Posted by: Kuze Mar 14 2006, 10:39 PM|
|yeah, I'll get eh-sun to do thatt asap|
|Posted by: ZigZaggerty Mar 15 2006, 03:21 AM|
|Aaawww, every character I think about adopting either goes active again or someone calls dibs on killing them all quickly like. I shall continue to sit and wait...M'yes...|
|Posted by: Bloody_Fists Mar 16 2006, 05:41 PM|
|What about that hannah juet girl? i think mastermind should adopt her if thats ok with everyone, and i mean everyone, Just trying to give master mind a chance to RP here.|
|Posted by: Swoosh Mar 16 2006, 06:09 PM|
|Well, I don't know about Hannah Juett, but I agree with letting Master_Mind choose from the inactives (if we have any more left) before putting them up for 'claiming'.|
|Posted by: Bloody_Fists Mar 16 2006, 06:53 PM|
|I know chance and yaka are being taken care of and i have no clue about hannah, so shes really the only inactive, So i was thinking instead of someone just killing her off, we could just give the adoption to mastermind. The guy seems cool and he's stuck around this long, we could give him a chance.|
|Posted by: d0ddi0slave Mar 16 2006, 06:55 PM|
| If Guitarjack has no problems with this, I personally don't see a problem with it.
|Posted by: guitarjack87 Mar 18 2006, 06:55 PM|
|yeah, go ahead, i dont know what to do with her anyways. Just make sure you read the profile and earlier posts to get a feel for her.|
|Posted by: ZigZaggerty Mar 20 2006, 12:04 AM|
| Hurrah I say! So since the deadline has passed, can I safely post as Hannah now?
(I read her biography and past posts. So worry you shall not.))
|Posted by: d0ddi0slave Mar 20 2006, 12:10 AM|
|Yes, we've officially got it done, Kai's approved it, so Master_Mind, welcome to SOTF!|
|Posted by: ZigZaggerty Mar 20 2006, 12:13 AM|
| MWA HA HA HA! YES!
*Ahem*Don't mind that...
