Survivor: Space (Game 6) officially begins on August 18, 2013.

The first 10 people to reply to this thread and include the words "sign up" will be the 10 contestants who will be placed on the island. (Registration Deadline: August 10, 2013)

Please take note: Survivor requires you to post at LEAST one journal entry per week, and participate in a contest every week for the duration of the game (approximately six weeks). If you don't have enough time to dedicate, please don't sign up.

Additionally: Preference will be given to people who did not participate in the previous game of Survivor. If ten "new" people have not registered by the deadline, then repeat players will be able to fill in the vacant slots based on order of sign up.


Survivor is an online community game that is played on Creatures Caves. This is the fifth game that has taken place.

Basically there are ten users sent onto an imaginary island where they document their excursions and what happens. They post journal entries to keep everyone updated on what they're doing and seeing, and contests that they are required to participate in are posted in this forum. For example, in one of the previous games everyone had to create a map of the island, post it in a forum thread, and the winner received a prize.

Every Friday the two people with the most votes (anyone on CC.com can vote people off) are kicked off the island. The last user remaining wins! And there's an opinion column run by a separate user to keep everyone updated on what's going on with the players. (DarbyDoo will be running the column this game.)

It usually gets pretty intense as more people are voted off. The votes are supposed to be based off how active the user is and what they're doing, based on their journal entries. However, a lot of people will put images in their forum signatures like "VOTE KARIAS OFF!!!" to try to influence the voting. It's a lot of fun!


Sign Up Process:

Step 1: Decide what image you would like to use to represent you in space. (Please note: you will need an image of a creature with a plain background color, e.g. black.) You must provide a link to the image in the signup process. If you have any difficulty with this, please sign up without an image and then send a private message to Rascii.

Step 2: Select one general item and one weapon to bring with you into space. If you're worried about people stealing your ideas, feel free to wait until after registration has ended to unveil your item and weapon. (This must be done before the game officially starts, however.)

Step 3: Provide a few sentences about yourself to go alongside the picture in your journal.

Step 4: Simply respond to this thread with the words "sign up" and the three steps above included. Thank you!

Wha? I'm the first one here?! I guess I have no choice but to SIGN UP then!



General Item: This odd Bat-Head is actually a fair sized pillow! Although it's easily compressed, and rather thin, it should more than enough provide for a Creature in sparse conditions. It's true symbolism is an absolute mystery though... probably.

Weapon of choice: A sword made entirely of stone! It's a bit heavy, but entirely useful. Oddly enough, this weapon seems a bit pixelated...

Hi, I'm Coolpikaaa, but I can easily go by CP! Long time lurker, first time active participant! I've been playing Creatures for years ever since I found C2 at an electronics store as a kid. I also like space! And RPing!

If only there was some way I could RP Creatures in space...

Oh! Wait! There is!

And I'm prepared for it....[nevil]

I would like this to be my picture.

I will leave my things as a surprise... *laughs*

I have a journal blurb ready:

Username: iotorr
Moniker: 001-ERRO-G13H-77I8-KL62
Species: Albian
Sex: F
Mother: NMF
Father: NMF

About:
My name is Iraila of Clan Torr, Keepers of The Lighthouse and Watchers on the Cliffs. I’m a Norn, but the computer wouldn’t recognize it!

The Shee came back after a few thousand years absence, and- during the celebration we held in their honor, mind!- must have hauled me and a couple of other creatures off to… where ever this is… One minute I’m enjoying a nice bottle of shee wine with friends, the next I’m in a lab with only my fishing spear and amulet!

If someone finds a white cloth / black and yellow feather robe and a headdress (it matches), please send me a message.

ETA: I'm working on a introduction blurb as we speak...

I don't expect to win, but I figure I might as well sign up and be a contestant this time after serving as last game's columnist.

Journal Blurb:
"Call me Akuryu. I may look like a Draconian Norn, but in reality I am a grendel. I believe that my tough scales and dragon-esque biology will give me the edge on this rough-and-tumble space station. I look forwards to tearing up the competition...figuratively speaking, of course."

General item: To be decided....
Weapon: To be decided....

Blurb: I'm Ziggy, an Ettin. My parents died when I was very young, and I was adopted by a strange, scarred Norn. He taught me everything I know before he died, all of it about the game called "Survivor". I have been trained my whole life to play this game and I'll do anything to win it.

I'd like to use the picture I used for the last survivor, if possible.
here

General Item: Faulty pocket-chicken nugget vendor

Occasionally, when this object is in a good mood, it'll dispense some well-needed nourishment. Other times, it'll simply refuse. Found on my quest for the best food-vendor in the universe.

Weapon: Obviously-haunted staff

Another item found on my travels. At first, I thought it was just your average 'jackal-headed staff found in the ruins of a haunted cave system'. But now I'm pretty sure it's haunted. I haven't seen it do worse than yap at me at all hours. I brought this with me because, frankly, I'm not the best fighter.


Well, I'm not going to lie, that warp portal wasn't all I thought it'd be. I didn't wind up anywhere near that legendary vendor. Nope, apparently it had been moved ages ago. At least the people who did it had the courtesy to leave a note.

So, I bet you're wondering: how did I get to this ship? Well, there I was, getting on this ship, to take me to the vendor's shuttle. You know, the usual. A boring ride halfway across the universe, to a planet that had no warp portals. I had no idea it would be quite so- chaotic.

Looks like I'll have to fend for myself again, before I can find the vendor and head home. Just my luck, right?

I would like to sign up, please.

^That's me. I'm your average everyday Forest Norn. When somebody told me there were sign-ups for a game show, I rushed over.

I'm not totally sure what I'm supposed to do, but I'm sure they'll explain it to me soon. So far, the only thing they've told me is to bring a personal item and a weapon. I don't know what the weapon is for, I'm just hoping this doesn't turn out to be the Eem Hungry Games.

I recently looked this game show up on Nornipedia, so at least I know a little of what to expect. According to past games, they're probably going to dump me on a tropical island with a bunch of coconut trees and maybe a nice jungle or something, so my food is pretty much covered. But what about my opponents? Maybe I can form an alliance with a couple of them, I am a pretty likable Norn, if I do say so my self.


General Item: Ice Cream Machine

A friend told me that they heard from a friend who heard from a Grendel that there was a game show of sorts going on and they needed contestants. So I packed up my ice cream machine that I bought when they were selling them in honer of the winner of the last Survivor. It's a bit big, but I think it will come in handy, when I'm thirsty I can eat the ice out of it, and when I'm hungry I can stick whatever's around me into it and enjoy some delicious ice cream. (What do you mean it doesn't work like that?)

Weapon: A Jar Full of Stingers

When they informed me I had to bring a weapon, I wasn't sure what to bring. I'm not a very violent Norn, so I thought of something that would let me injure my opponents but without having to do it myself. And if I ever run out of Stingers or, I don't know, my plan backfires and they come after me or something (Like that will ever happen!), I can always break the jar and use the glass as a weapon.

I am a calm Yettin male named Ian.
Its not that I'm secretive about my item and my weapon, its just, have you ever gone for vacation? You don't want to carry a ton of suitcases, but the problem is that you have to get your suitcase closed. I honestly don't want to have it open in customs and everything fly out (its two items I know, but they're tightly sealed). If I make a mess, we'll just stand here all day gawking at what I'm carrying.
Don't worry, I'll show everyone soon.
I've seen the two prior survivor games, didn't pay too much attention to them, but I would like to throw my hat into the ring. Along with that I believe I can provide ample entertainment to the Norns, Grendels, Ettins, Geats, Hands, and the Shee I know will be watching us.
I'd prefer to avoid conflict, and make friends and enjoy this, but I'm afraid I may have to be mean at times. I am sorry for whatever I do in advance.
Player Bio: Hello~
A long time ago I stumbled onto Creatures Caves. Most of the time I visited, I noticed something called Survivor, that for the most part seemed either finished, starting up, or inactive, however, it seemed magical. I've played a bunch of times, a bunch of worlds, agents, and breeds, and its been a whole lot of fun. Along with that, I've loved the time I get to spend as an active part of the community, as I participated with a poem in CCSF (2009 I think), and I've been meaning to be more active. So, I think its about time I Sign Up for this great event~!

At the baggage claim....
It is revealed Ian's General Item is a Tea Making Set, and that his weapon is his tightly packed suitcase itself!

Adding to what LoverIan said, finished registration forms will likely have preference to 'slot holding' registrations. ;D

Yeah, everyone who wants to sign up please post a reply.

At the end I'll figure out who the final contestants are. Please disregard current sign up reply counts as some may be repeats from previous games.

@Rascii-
Hey, I was wondering- what are we considering to be a "weapon"? Is it something that can feasibly be used as a weapon, or is it something that is traditionally considered a weapon?

I'll send you a PM with my items.

It can be however you interpret a 'weapon'. :) It's pretty open-ended. Just think of something that you may want to use as a weapon while in space.

Dear Survivor Registrants:

This is just a friendly reminder that Survivor does require time to write journal entires, participate in contests and overall lots of dedication to the website for a span of up to six weeks (possibly less if you get voted off early).

If you feel that you do not have the time to dedicate to Survivor, please let me know and we can cancel your registration so that someone who really wants to participate and will fully utilize the opportunity can participate.

Many people take Survivor seriously, so please review the old journals to make sure you feel ready to participate. It only occurs once or twice per year, so those who cannot participate have to wait at least another six months for the next game.

If anyone wants to participate but missed out because 10 people already registered, please send me a PM and we'll discuss it.


Thank you. :)

Here's the official roster so far:

1. Coolpikaaa
2. Feddlefew
3. Grendel Man
4. Malkin
5. HavenHoney
6. ettinmaniac
7. c1anddsaddict (waitlisted)
8. Kappsune
9. LoverIan
10. rubberducky (?)

I'm unsure about 7 (waitlisted) and 10 (half joined), so basically there are still 2 spots remaining, and we could potentially go up to 12 if there's that much interest, so maybe four spots remaining.

Image: Blitz

General Item: The Infinite Carrot

Weapon: Water Pistol

Blurb: My name is Blitz, my Hand is Handy and this... THIS... is MY infinite carrot! Don't believe the rumours, I'm an honest Norn I swear! The "noble" Shee who claims to own this carrot is in fact a liar and, quite frankly, a smellypants. He always laughed when I would walk off that dastardly cliff (he probably had a floor-opening button), but who's laughing now huh? **maniacal laughter**

Handy, on the other hand ([nlaugh]), is a good friend. He told me to press the forbidden button to leave the Shee lab once and for all. Well, the good news is there's no more smellypants Shee, but after being sucked through a big flash of light, here I am in some weird metal place with no light outside except for the shiny boops everywhere, with nothing but this infinite carrot and my trusty water pistol.

My name is Jeremiah J. Irons. I’m the illegitimate son of an oil Tycoon, and a Baptist mother. I'm also a former Toxic norn, (i.e. a drug-junk food addict), but by sheer force of luck, and will and dedication and the help of the rusted gears on my mountain bike, I became the developer of JUICE THIS: A JUICING RAW FOOD EMPIRE ™. Kale, spinach, mangoes, bok-choy, boot straps, you name it, I juice it. And I enjoy my cup of delicious frothing sunshine every morning on the patio of my Colorado home while I look at the passing coyotes and moose and deer and wild cockatiels. And believe you me, these super-power-micro-nutrients pack the one-two-punch. Yee-haw. Howdy there. In short I suppose I’m something of a fruit-nut-paleodiet-o-lithic guru, and I have cured everything from Asthma to Zenophobia by the power invested in me (and my investment), by the power of Mother Nature’s unlimited and infinite soothing and healing powers and a tiny baby carrot the size of my pinkie. You want the laying of hands? I’ll give you the grinding of rinds. I’m ready to take this rodeo into Outerspace.

So it should come as no surprise that

My General Item of Choice:
Breville multipurpose masticating juicer/rare fruit dispenser (and its constituent parts)

My weapon of choice is:
Super-concentrated Positive Thinking. In the summer of ’08 I had a massive heart attack, and the only course of action was removing the entire heart and replacing it with an illuminated core much Ironman’s palladium core or the Carebear Stare. Now, I played around with it, and the best thing to propel my ticker and keep it tip-top is the leftover rinds of my juiced
plantage coupled with an electrical pulse that together emits high pitched frequencies and something of a double rainbow that can be seen and heard by dogs on earth and have been known to be suture wounds (when dialed down) as well as mace someone in the face. It’s a tricky thing, positive thinking.

Signing off,
and putting the rough in roughage,
J. Irons,

“YOU NAME IT, I JUICE IT.” ™

Edit: I'm going to use my "BEFORE" picture as my icon/avatar, when I was in the height of toxicity, because this reminds me of my progress:

http://www.creaturescaves.com/popup.php?action=Image&type=Gallery&ID=1471

But for the record, now I look more like my namesake, actor Jeremy Irons.

Oh man, I hope my Sign-up gets chosen...

I am a female Banshee Grendel.

General Item: A zippered bag that unfolds into a blanket.

Weapon: A hunting knife.

Blurb: I was taking a hunting trip to one of my favorite savannah planets when I got stranded! It's a simply dreadful state of affairs, and with all these savages, I will certainly have to defend myself before all this is over. *adjusts floral hat* I do hope there is some tea on this space-ship... Ugh, there are so many better things I could be doing right now instead of being stuck on this terrible space station...

(I Might have to take this down, since school starts on the 5th and I have NO IDEA how tired I'll be when I get home. I'll do my best, though, and I'll know by the deadline if I can do it or not.
