Survivor: Arctic (Game 5) officially begins on December 30, 2012.

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: December 23, 2012)

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. (Grendel Man 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: Select one of the following pictures and include your decision along with your sign up post. This picture will represent you in the game. (If you would like to have a different picture, please select "19" and send a message to Rascii; he will explain the process of having a personal image created. Please note: you will need an image of a creature with a plain background color, e.g. black.)

Step 2: Provide a few sentences about yourself to go alongside the picture in your journal.

Step 3: Simply respond to this thread with the words "sign up" and the two steps above included. Thank you!

Ooh, sign me up. #12 please! [nwink]

Hello, Laura here, your resident agony aunt turned Treehugger ice lolly. I am cautiously looking forward to my time in the chilly climes of Survivor Iceberg... I hope no poor creature comes to me seeking advice about their frostbitten tail, for I’d be scared of it dropping off in my paws, and ironically I don’t like the cold! Things are going to get interesting. Also, I'm praying that one of my fellow contestants manages to smuggle in some tea bags because I’m bringing my teapot; one daily essential I cannot possibly live without. I won’t be caught lacking a steaming hot mug or two. Or ten. Well, a girl’s gotta keep warm!

I've never participated in Survivor, I'll sign up too!

I'll pick #9, the magma norn.

Hello, I'm Panda! I'm an artist in training! I love tea, watching many forms of animation like anime, reading, sometimes playing video games, and of course drawing! I've loved Creatures since I was 12 years old and started off playing the Playstation 1 version.

Could I join with an original picture please? I've PMed Rascii but just wanted to post here to try to stake a claim on one of the survivor game slots before they all fill up.

Picture: 18

Also, should I post the character back story I'm working on here now or wait until I have the picture/response from Rascii?

I'd like to sign up for the waitlist, even though I participated in the last one. I pick #1.

My description: Hi, I'm ylukyun. I'm looking forward to returning to the island and seeing what it's like in the cold weather. Maybe I will find some new wildlife!

I'd like #11, the relaxed little Siamese, please.

As for me: I'm Bearthing. I like to write which means that I like to plot. I am a prime plotter. I plotted for this. You see, I will ask for a lamp. People say, "Bear, what can you do in the arctic with a lamp?" Many a thing, friend. The shade can be a blanket. The bulb can be shattered and used to cut tree and eat seed. The bulk of the lamp itself can give a Grendel a good thumping. The cord, I've found, tastes much like licorice. You know, in a pinch.

Oh, I can't have a lamp?

...

New plan: I'll ask for chili con carne. People say, "Bear, what can you do in the arctic with chili con carne?" Many a thing, friend...

Hello Everybody!! Don't worry about me dealing with the cold, my Hand specifically trained me to take on the cold. Except she also genetically engineered my egg, but that's beside the point...

Yes - arctic Survivor! I'd love to sign up!
I'm going to choose image 14 - I adore those chubby new Cave Norns.

Hey there! I'm Hawk, a simple Creature who enjoys food, fun, and adventure. I'm looking forward to living out in the cold - I've always been fond of ice and chilly things. I've never been to the island before, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to have the upper hand on the returning Creatures thanks to my thick fur coat. Though I might not last too long, because I've never quite left Sphericus... Either way, I'm looking forward to this frigid adventure!

I'm c1anddsaddict, and I honestly don't know what I'm thinking by joining this! I lived in the desert most of my life and can't stand the cold. I suppose I had better pack some heating agents. Like that nice sun cozy my hand has. I could rest on that for hours. I'm a very picky eater. I hope I can find some decent food. Who am I kidding? What am I getting myself into?

Sign up please? #19 - Lady Borgetta - message sent to Rascii already, just included the link to the base picture so that what I wrote below makes sense to everyone else. Ah, I love the C2 borg norns... & the other lovely C2 breeds too.

Greetings.... Normally I'm pretty shy & not fond of crowds, contests or things like that, but I always love to explore new areas, which is what draws me to the island currently. I wonder what new critters & plants I might find there, maybe I can take some home with me. I wonder if I will see any boney grendels on the island, they are so cute! Hmmm, I will have to see if I can find the stuff to make a plushie version of one so I can carry it around & snuggle it. I wonder where I would find the parts for it....
I don't think I will be bothered by the cold, but I hope my cyber eye doesn't lock up while I'm on the island. It can be so troublesome to fix it sometimes. My teleporter already broke so I have to wait like everyone else to get to the island. So crowded waiting here..... Em will be assimilated.... I got to stop saying that. It's not like I'm part of that crazy hivemind thing anymore.... Resistance is Futile. Must... stop... saying... that....

Hmmm.... I wonder if there will be any good hills for sledding.

We need more people! If we don't get two more people than Grendel Man won't release the new version of Chione!
Why don't you just put lisha777 and ylukyun off the waiting list and put them on the sign-up list?

Well, there's the very little remnants of Albia 2000, but the message wouldn't get through all the spam.

Don't forget the Creaturetopia forums too. They're quiet, but there are people there who still regularly check for posts. :)

Edit: Sorry, I forgot you need an account to post there and registrations are still closed. Perhaps someone with an account could go post.

I'm not quite sure how to play this, but it seems like you guys need more members, so I'll gladly sign up! I'll take #16 please, the new norn design is so adorable.

(Oh gosh, how to do descriptions... I don't know how norns think!)

I'm Ratkinzluver33, a simple, inexperienced norn who certainly hasn't done anything adventurous like this before. I've always been fond of the cold, so I'm really excited to start exploring a snowy, arctic island!

(...Does that count?)

Both lisha777 and ylukyun participated in the previous game of Survivor which was hosted last summer, so they have to wait until Survivor registration officially ends to see if there are slots remaining (Dec. 23rd). Priority is given to people who did not play in the previous game:

It's only morning where Rascii lives, so for him it's still early in the day. I reckon once he's come online and posted the topics for the opinion column and everybody's journals we'll be off. :)

Only morning there huh... It just turned noon here...
Sigh... this is one of the few times when working the night shift sucks, I have to go to bed now, & I may not get to see the column & journals until tomorrow morning when I get home from work.

I guess I'll just have to see about making my journal entry a bit crazier than normal to make up for the lost time. :P
