    The Plot
    California. Commonly known for the beach, the sun, and the surf. Maybe even Los Angeles and Hollywood comes to mind. When you think of California, you probably don't think of this place; Bayland. You might think about San Francisco Bay or Los Angeles, but not this place; our place.

    Welcome to Bayland, California.

    The city is home to hot surfers; who will probably work at your local store, so you do get some eye candy at somewhere other than the beach. Geeky college students who are trying to pay themselves through college. Bored housewives with an edge. Let's not forget the stinking rich who parade their wealth by regularly hosting elegant dinner parties with all their snobby friends.

    There's so many different personalities in Bayland.

    Who are you? Are you rich, glamorous and divine? Or are you poorer, working night and day for those precious bucks? Can you handle the secrets? The scandals? The betrayal? Can you make it through your life in Bayland? Who will you become along the way?

    Choose your path wisely. Your reputation depends on it.

    The a-listers are your big buck earners, the celebrities. When you see them around town, they will most likely be guarded by security, however this is not always true, or be trailing some paparazzi. This is the highest class you can go. Everyone wants to be an a-lister, everyone is interested in what they're doing, everyone wants to be in their social circle, but only a select few are. They are constantly seen around Bayland. These people usually own a well-known business, are famous for their talents. Members of this class are usually put on a really high pedestal and given what they want. To be a part of the A-lister class you must either be famous or have a relative that's famous. (Please remember that your character can't be extremely famous, and no character is more famous that the other)

    Upper Class;
    The Upper Class are the people in Bayland that aren't quite A-listers but they have just enough money to be called rich. These are your typical rich class, being part of a five star social club, hosting dinner parties that all the middle class dream of being invited to. To be a part of the Upper Class you must possess a large sum of money.

    Middle Class;
    This class is usually where most average earning families with a nice house and two cars tend to be. Middle Class is where you mostly find your bored housewives and your classic 'perfect' family.
    When you are part of the middle class you earn an average amount of money a year, usually just enough to keep your household running with a little extra money on the side for those treats. You will generally have a tough job, maybe sometimes two depending on your lifestyle choices.

    Lower Class;
    The Lower Class, are born survivors of a city. They generally face uncomfortable living conditions. Their homes are nothing to be proud of, however due to their jobs they can't afford anything better. As for transportation, they normally can be seen within a city bus, not minding what others think of them. At times, these people have two jobs, which is to try to help them get back upon their feet and out into society again. That does not mean any of these people gain any respect from those of higher class. Although the Middle Class treats them well, to the A-lister and Upper Class, they are usually nothing but the scum upon their shoes. Many of them hope that one day there will be some sort of glory placed upon their name.

    Job Claims
