Attention, handlers:

With V6 nearing completion, the time for more dedicated planning of V7 is at hand. As such, we have opened a planning board to allow for better discussion of character relationships, groups, etc.

We are also at this time releasing some information regarding the V7 pregame setting and school, to better allow handlers to ready their concepts and draft profiles.

Students for V7 will be enrolled at George Hunter High School in Chattanooga, Tennessee. All chosen students will be in the senior class and must have been enrolled at Hunter High since their freshman year.

As with previous versions, the start of pregame will not be directly tied to the progression of Endgame, and may occur before or after the completion of the version. Further details and guidelines will be released as the start of pregame approaches.

Built in the early 2010s to reduce overflow in the existing central high and also show that public schools can match the areas private schools in quality. George Hunter High is a modern construction located in the northeast Birchwood area that boasts many high quality facilities spread out over a collection of buildings on its campus. It primarily takes its students from a nearby gated community and urban development and any transfer students are only accepted during the freshman year as the school is still assessing what is the best size for its student population. As such a foreign exchange program is under consideration but has yet to be implemented. The school's main sports teams are the basketball and volleyball teams, which are highly ranked within their divisions, although it also fields many other teams. They also have a debate team that has been quite successful in the past. The school colors are green with black and white accents and its mascot is Hunter the Horned Owl.

The city of Chattanooga is located in southeastern Tennessee right on the Tennessee River. A transit hub known for its scenic surroundings, many outdoor activities, and rich cultural history, Chattanooga has a lot to offer to long-term residents and newcomers alike.
Have fun!

Quick question:

When exactly in the early 2010s does the school date to? Assuming that V7 takes place in 2017 or 2018, the characters in question could be the inaugural class if the school was completed in spring 2013. Even if this is not the case, it seems like students would've attended the school at the same time as the original class/could have older siblings in that class, which also makes me curious how the opening was handled (for example, was the freshmen-only rule in effect from the start, leaving the school to slowly fill up, or were there initial transfer classes from some of the other schools?).

Thanks!

Pregame takes place in spring-early summer 2017. George Hunter High was officially opened for the 2011-2012 school year and in its first year allowed students from all high school classes to enroll so that there wouldn't be just the singular class of freshmen running around the place. The freshman-only transfer rule was enacted after the initial enrollments were completed to prevent overflow problems like the ones that the school was built to deal with in the first place. Priority for current enrollment goes to people living in the main two neighborhoods that the school draws its student body from, but anyone in the northeastern part of the district is technically eligible.
