The Pit of Condemned Bimbos Survivalists (or PoCBS) was a short-lived tongue-in-cheek faction within Forever Knight fandom for people who were confident that they would have survived the so called "Pit of Condemned Bimbos"—the dungeon in which, in the 13th century, Nick Knight kept his victims in the flashback to the episode "Fallen Idol".
According to Brenda Bell in a post made to FORKNI-L@LISTS.PSU.EDU on 9 March 2011:
- "We were the ones who, while enjoying the idea of being snacked on by Nick, wouldn't have wanted to died from the experience (or become permanent members of the night shift).
- We were, at least in theory, preparing ourselves to survive the experience of becoming a "Neck of the Week"."
The faction was founded by Leah Rainey in August 1997, but was defunct within a year. It had a short-lived faction website, The Forever Knight Pit of Condemned Bimbos Survivalists Faction Page that was abandoned half complete.
Members included Leah Rainey, Brenda Bell, KiloNyte, Heather J. Williams, Cousin Mel, Cousin Helene, Anna, and Raven.
In 2012, Greer Watson created an icon for the Pit of Condemned Bimbos Survivalists as part of her project to create a set of icons for all the Forever Knight factions. The design composits a screen capture from "Fallen Idol" (showing Nick holding one of the captives in the dungeon) with a photograph of a female martial artist, positioned so that she is kicking in Nick's direction.
- The information in this page is adapted from the article on the Pit of Condemned Bimbos Survivalists in the Forever Knight Wiki. Much of the information was supplied by Brenda Bell in posts made to FORKNI-L@LISTS.PSU.EDU on 8 and 9 March 2011.
- There are still a few fans who continue to consider themselves members and put the name of the faction in their sigs when posting to the mailing list.
