No New Posts Gymnasium

Yes, gym class. The epitome of hell, for some students. Either you're in here because you have to be, or because you want to be. Students come here outside of class time to work out, too. Or show off.

If you need a quiet place to study, or some research materials, this is the place. Just don't do anything stupid in here. Like light the books on fire. You will be in trouble.

No New Posts Auditorium

The auditorium isn't anything special. Really, it's exactly like the gym and the cafeteria, except it has a stage at one end and usually has rows of chairs set up. Sometimes they're cleared away, though, and it's time for a dance.

If you find yourself on these floors, congratulations. These dorms are coveted by students (not so much by parents). Boys and girls room together here, same as the others. Everyone has their own bedroom, and the shared common area.

No New Posts Training Field

This is the place to do some outdoor training. Great for the more physical abilities. Doubles as a football/soccer field for gym class, or a place for students to roughhouse.

A small pond on the school property. It's home to a group of koi, which students can sit and watch, or they can just stick their feet in the water on a hot day. Just be nice to the fishies, got it?

No New Posts Club District

Of course a town, even a small one, has a club or two. Some of the older students, and the staff, of course, head here to blow off some steam, fueled by good music and alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol. If you would like a sub-board added here for a business establishment, PM an admin.

Just outside of Pilot Ridge is a fairly large lake. Though some of the town residents take small boats out onto it, there is an area designated for swimming, with docks and a rope swing. A great place to go on a summer day.
