welcome to destiny's strata!

PREMIUM - MATURE

The town seems like any other town. Simple, quiet on the exterior but digging beyond the surface will reveal a whole new world of deception, lies, and most of all, power. This is where the rich come to raise their families. But they all have their dirty little secrets. Isolating themselves from the rest of the world is the norm here, weeding out the 'bad seeds'. The children are raised with a sense of 'being privileged' and their parents encourage this. They go to private universities where they are taught to rule the world.

But there is one little problem...

The government says they have to allow a certain number of scholarships every year to the underprivileged kids or risk the closure of their schools. On the far end of town lives the poor, the down-trodden, and the downright scum of the earth, or, at least, that is how the upper class sees them. Mana Marrow tries to hide this embarrassment in their town but now, with the government intervening, they will have to allow some of these young adults to mix with their own precious, spoiled, and pampered offspring. The town comes together to form 'The Hetaireia', a secret society for the Elite, and figures out a way to make this work in their favor, however, and soon the lucky chosen underprivileged youth begin their university studies only to find that all is not as it seems. A hierarchy is born and they find themselves at the bottom rung, treated as less than second class citizens.

Will you be one of the privileged students that seem to rule the schools?
Or will you be one of the poor, who struggle for the acceptance that they may never find?
Or maybe you will be an adult, working in the town, the schools, or at the factory that supplies jobs for little pay and hard labor?

The choice is yours, so choose wisely!

How about clubs in the school?
-Garden club
-Book Club
-Newspaper Club
-FBL Club -Future business leaders-
-Science Club
-Literature club
-Others...

Maybe an area that allows others to request for a club to be made and there has to be a certain number of characters to create it. Like 3
Some may want to join more than one. This can get rps with multiple characters participating in the thread for club meetings and events.

FBL is a extensive and advanced club. Both elites and scholars are involved. They go outside of mana marrow to compete against other schools to get high rankings and ratings for their school. They come up with ways to better their school. -scholars are limited but they need the braniacs for the scoring-

We have been considering implementing clubs in the schools for some time now (there are even forums within the two elites schools for clubs and societies that are so far empty) so yes, in short, look forward to seeing that around Mana Marrow at some point in the near future!

As for club suggestions, we will add a forum for those as well.
