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...

I hope that you don't mind your character being quite nervous at the start, it seems like you would be and slowly accept it while my character will slowly grow more nervous as the game approaches.

Chapter 3
Travels


I gape at the immaculate train station in Payska. Why does the capital of Suxnei have so many huge, advanced buildings? That's unfair; they're farmers, while us Gwarashnar live in the dry and cold badlands and are impoverished despite doing triple the work. We even have to travel to Payska in a carriage because there aren't any trains in the badlands.

A Survivalist guard pushes me towards the group. "Contestant Zetsu; keep moving".

At least it looks like someone from Gwarashnar might win this year. It's been a while. A decade ago, both winners of the Hunger Games were from Suxnei for four years in a row. Come on! This year, we have Sayla, the expert gatherer, and Kowhai, the daughter of our chief. She's very tech-savvy, since she's been to the Survivalist cities before.

I don't think that I will win, but I have more than two months to work out and learn some survival tips before the Hunger Games begin. If I won't be lazy, then I have a chance. I need to make some smart alliances. I don't necessarily have to make any friends; any emotional attachment to the contestants here could lead to my downfall.

I'm definitely going to learn from Sayla; from what I've heard, she lived in the wild badlands for a few years as a punishment for something, so she knows every type of edible or poisonous plant around and can build hidden shelter. She's a bit insane. Well, no, she is definitely insane. She wears a necklace of the ears of the deceased to silence screams that she claims she can hear. But she's hardy and ruthless, so it doesn't matter.


Sayla the gatherer; her ability to survive in the wilderness will help all of her allies.

Faiz and Ay-Chao are book smart, but I don't know anything else about them. If Faiz is really a poet then he doesn't stand a chance. Cosmo is great at sports, he's an athlete. He can be a good and trustworthy ally.

But I shouldn't limit myself to just Gwarashnar allies. That's what usually leads to our group's downfall. Maybe I can trick some of the Suxnei contestants.

Yes, that's a very good idea.

Joe keeps tossing and turning in his bed. This train cabin is uncomfortable, and everything on his mind isn't helping his calm down enough to sleep. He really, really, really doubts that he's getting past the first day.

Why is he in this anyways? These new rules were stupid. Joe won the 58th Hunger Games, and got an amputated leg and disfigured back for it. Unlike most Údnei victors, Joe opted to live in the Survivalist cities for much of his post-victor life, where he got a prosthetic leg, but nothing could be done for his back. He can already see it; limping away from the Cornucopia, only to have his lungs punctured by some rogue shooter.

At least he wasn't alone in this; rumour has it that another Hunger Games victor was selected as well. A guard said that it was Jayma from Charngashnar, who was the sole victor of the 33rd Hunger Games, but another one said that it was a winner of the 67th Hunger Games. Joe doesn't remember who won that year.

He's probably going to ally with any previous victors. The Údnei contestants are crazy this year. Joe never liked the Údnei marshlands. It was backwards in every way possible.

But did the holy High Priestess really have to be selected this year? The Sun Daughter, Batari, was already leading Sayori and Roshani in prayers that they win. Unlike most of the Údnei and Suxnei, Joe didn't believe in their deities of the sun and the moon. Unfortunately, because Batari was chosen, this Hunger Games is probably going to be filled with religious talk in her grand attempts to convert everyone.

Unlike most Údnei, Joe also could care less about who won. Meanwhile, Ianiant wouldn't stop talking about how exciting it was that Batari, Joe, and Roshani were chosen for the Údnei because of their prowess in combat. Roshani is the best athlete in the nation, including in wrestling, while Batari has a strong resistance to burns and is an expert with the bow. Joe wonders how Ianiant didn't notice his limp.

He is intrigued by that Sophia girl; something about her seems very off. Joe definitely wants to get to know her better.

Joe finds it very suspicious that he and Batari are in this year's Hunger Games. Both of them have been very outspoken about their distaste for Overseer Neff's new rules; it got Joe kicked out of the Survivalist cities, but he's returning one last time, it seems.

Actually, Joe feels that he has an idea why they were selected...and it isn't a great one.
