  • This is a final 3 game which will include a firemaking challenge at 4 to determine the last finalist.
  • It is labeled as a STANDARD game.
  • Note that while you have until Wednesday, July 27th at midnight central to apply, your chances of being accepted are higher the earlier you apply.

This game is anonymous. Please do not reveal that you are in this game or that you have applied to anyone else. You should keep your identity secret during the game, and you should not attempt to find out the identity of other players.

Live Elements
This game will include some live elements. All such elements either have the option to sit out if on a tribe that is competing, or submit asynchronous at a slight disadvantage or both.

IRL Elements

A clarification based on questions I've been getting:

It is not a requirement nor an expectation that you role play as your character in this game. The description on the questionnaire section is simply to remind players to fill out the questions in this way if they plan on doing so. If you don't plan on role playing, just answer them normally.

Hey Everyone! Thanks so much for getting applications in! We have a really exciting cast shaping up and I'm really looking forward to the game.

Still need some people to get us over the finish line!

As a reminder, we'd love more newbies! If you're a new player and thinking about playing your first game please get into contact!

We're also always looking for more spectators. Last game there was a very active spectator discord and by all accounts it was a blast. If you're looking to spectate please don't hesitate.

We're super excited by all the signups we've got and I'm loving how our cast is shaping up. If you haven't applied yet and you still think you want to play you have roughly a day to do so!

Also, please don't hesitate to put in a spectator app! We're going to have a (hopefully active) spec discord for the game along with a couple people who have generously offered to write round summaries for the rest of the specs in the discord. It's gunna be great. Get those spec apps in!
