SETTING Atmosphere (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Atmosphere (open) Atmosphere (close) It's somewhere in the middle of Autumn, and the new school year is bound to start within just a few short days. The temperature is dropping fast, already down to just about 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The leaves on the occasional tree have just begun turning a golden color, with the early ones just beginning to hint at darker reds and browns. School (Move your mouse to reveal the content) School (open) School (close) The place where all the people are is in the heart of the moderately-developed modern city, Lendover. In it, you can find two Elementary schools [kindergarten-5th grade] -- Yume Elementary (Mascot: Owl) in the northeast and Wittleson Elementary (Mascot: Wildebeest) in the southwest. Garnet Middle School (Mascot: Goose) [6th grade-8th grade] is a little towards the west. There is also Prairie High School (Mascot: "Dog") [9th-12th] towards the center, its rival being River West High (Mascot: Catfish) in a nearby city that also holds Burgundy Academy and Burgundy University, two very prestigious schools disdaining anyone from Lendover. Housing and Work (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Housing and Work (open) Housing and Work (close) One can find every means of housing from one-man shacks to towering apartment complexes to one of seven colossal mansions. However, the most impressive buildings are the corporate and company buildings. Snowfall Inc. (Electronics in general) and uPyre (Tablets and laptops), owners of the largest in everything, are constantly at each other's throats -- not only do the companies create competition for each other, but even the employees of these two companies feel as if they are bitter enemies.

Attractions (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Attractions (open) Attractions (close) Contained within the city are several popular hangouts. In the middle are an amusement park, a normal park, a large arcade, a mall, and an indoor pool.
