A few centuries ago, humanity killed itself off after a large war that used nuclear weaponry resulted in famine and drought. Almost every place on Earth was affected, and most records of civilisation were destroyed. Climate change is what began this conflict; humanity could never control itself. The few remaining nations are all unaware of each other's existence, and have regressed into a society with a lot of advanced technology in transport and infrastructure, but with pre-Industrial era agriculture, healthcare, weaponry, and communications (with the exception of television).

Oros was founded 133 years ago by a group of a few thousand Survivalists, who enslaved the people who had already found a home; the Charngashnar mountain hunters, the Gwarashnar badland gatherers, the Suxnei plain farmers, and the Udnei marshland dwellers.

When the four groups rebelled 78 years ago, a bloody civil war erupted, but the Survivalists won. To force the natives to remember this event, the Hunger Games began. 6 people from each group of natives would be forced to battle it out until only 2 were remaining.

Charngashnar (The Mountains)
Alondra, Isabelle, Jayma, Kenny, Usopp, and Volt.

Gwarashnar (The Badlands)
Ay-Chao, Cosmo, Faiz, Kowhai, Sayla, and Zetsu.

Suxnei (The Plains)
Abu, Faith, Hobbes, Kanga, Leia, and Robin.

Údnei (The Marshlands)
Batari, Ianiant, Joe, Roshani, Sayori, and Sophia.

The 74th Hunger Games.

I have taken the liberty to create an entirely new world, with some backstory, in the first post. The Hunger Games themselves have the same rules (but with two winners being the default for more interesting dynamics). Random.org will be the sole decider of who dies and kills, with the exception of a death that makes zero sense in a story.

Usually, the downfall of my fanfictions is that I spend too much time on the backstory. So apart from the first post I will try to make sure that the rest of the fan fiction will just be plot!

Just throw in some random backstory when it is appropriate. Let the plot reveal that stuff slowly.

Chapter 1
The 74th Hunger Games


Overseer Neff towers over his Survivalist comrades on his altar this chilly spring day, but that doesn't help him with his stage fright. Breathing in...breathing out. Nobody will really care if he slips up; these people adore the Hunger Games, and they respect Matthew Neff just as much. Yet, announcing the start of Hunger Games season was always difficult for him.

Not that there was any time left to ponder about that.

It was time.

"Survivalist brothers and sisters!", Overseer Neff begins.

"I am pleased to announce that this year, the Hunger Games will be taking place in the summer. In 90 days, 24 contestants will be battling it out to the death. Only two will remain victorious!". Pausing for dramatic effect, his spirits are uplifted by the yelling and cheering of the crowd.

"We have a dangerous, but beautiful, arena being prepared for our contestants. They will be selected in 14 days; you will get to know them very soon! Thank you, Survivalists, for your continued loyalty to the government. This is your reward!".

They ate it up like candy, these Survivalists. Matthew didn't understand what was so exciting. These were foolish barbarians who got in the way of his ancestors; they deserved the painful reminder. No, they deserved far worse. Little did those barbarians know that the contestants this year were going to be rigged...

Forumers will be aged up, but for the most part, not too much. If you dislike an aspect about your character, don't hesitate to tell me. I tried to make the forumers similar to who they are.

Chapter 2
Perspectives


The gray-haired Jayma sneers at the other contestants from Charngashnar. This is disappointing. These teenagers and young adults look like their most exhausting experience has been at a gym. Typical Charngashnar youth; never leaving their heated cities, never braving the cold, freezing mountains to hunt for bears and elk.

She isn't supposed to be here, anyways; Jayma won the 33rd Hunger Games at only 14 years old. Apparently, there are new rules this year; anyone from the ages of 13 to 60 can be selected, with no exceptions.

She already knows that she isn't going to be a victor this time around, but when her name was called, she was looking forward to educating some youngsters on survival tips.

Especially hunting tips. She's the best huntress in the nation; no animal is a match for her. Man and beast have fallen at her feet; all except one. The most formidable animal in Oros is too bulky and too strong for her, but Jayma has gotten over that. She's in her twilight years.


Jayma reminisces about her being at her peak.

She coughs as yet another weakling gets called up. That Alondra girl is nervously cracking jokes with a clearly annoyed Isabelle, and Usopp is laughing along. Worthless! Kenny shows some potential, but that smug look on his face seems like a façade. Who's next? A teenaged barista?

The final contestant comes up silently.

His name is Volt, and there is something about him that captivates the crowd. Serious, but not cocky...

Jayma already knows who she will be training.

I walk up to the altar, heart beating after my selection.

"Good to see you here, Abu!", Hobbes tells me.

I'm glad that I know Hobbes and Robin from the Suxnei contestants, but it's shocking that everyone except Hobbes is a teenager. The Overseer announced yesterday that people up to the age of 65 could be selected, and it's quite strange that only one person older than 18 is selected in Suxnei. We're the largest of the four native groups, and because we're farmers, we're the healthiest by far, especially compared to the badland gatherers, the Gwarashnar.

I'm hoping to ally with Hobbes. He was my geography teacher two years ago, and he knows the outdoors quite well. But I'll have to see who's selected from the other regions first.

I don't really expect to win this, but if I win, then I will be able to see the the other parts of Oros. The Survivalists hate us natives unless we're Hunger Games victors. They live in their fancy cities, while only the Charngashnar and us Suxnei folk have any transport, since we're important to them for resources...

I see that our final contestant is someone named Kanga. The other contestants seem nice, but only Leia has much muscle on her, and I doubt that anyone but Hobbes knows anything about survival. I hope that someone from Suxnei wins again.

Well, let's see how this will work...I don't know yet. At least we have more than two months of preparation in the Survivalist region. I can't wait to see the cities!

I don't think that Robin took this too well. I'm going to go and help her calm down...
