And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages."
| Finale is a city run by three Supremacies. Regius, Equus, and Ira oversee Finale and its people. Upon arrival in Finale, men and women are given their role to play in society. It may contradict what they have done in their previous life, or it may aid in what they have yet to accomplish. They may be demoted if they do not act accordingly. New citizens are embedded with a microchip. This microchip monitors their actions as well as providing them with all the rules and laws of the city. There is no escape, not even suicide will save the citizens of Finale. Foods are genetically modified and supplied to the citizens. One forest exists and it is within the confines of the city. Work ends at 5. Between that time and 9 the next morning, the citizens are free to do whatever they please.|
The Supremacies monitor citizens’ behavior. Any misconduct (such as refusing to do their assigned job) is prohibited. If such a case arises, the citizen will be taken under supervision until the time of their court hearing. Fear not. Even Finale has its own form of recreational entertainment. Citizens partake in Masquerades hosted by the Clergy. This festival celebrates the patriotism citizens have for the Supremacies of Finale.
Finale is home to two groups of Extremists. The Patriots remain loyal to Supremacy Ira and her wrathful tendencies. They believe that Finale should punish those citizens who have disobeyed the laws- whether they are innocent or guilty- to death. Their wish is to overthrow Regius and start Finale from anew. Supremacy Equus is the complete polar opposite of Ira. He his calm and collective, but his logic is also flawed. He believes even murderers can turn a new leaf. He doesn't think locking someone away -wasting space- is a means of punishment
Characters are taken away from their home by Regius who appears before them in a mirror. Once in Finale, they are defined a role to play in society and must commit themselves wholly to that role. They live where they work and money holds no value. Instead, characters must barter and trade services they provide with one another. Students are given internships while not at school and live in the school dormitories. Children up to six years of age are raised in a day care until they are old enough to go to school.
Will you fail to see the ways of the Supremacies? Will you rebel against Regius? What paths will you chose? The choice is yours and the consequences of your actions are unlimited. Red, Purple, or Blue: Who will you align with?
