• Next Hunger Games
    Our next Hunger Games is a little different than our previous ones. Called "Battle Royale," this Hunger Games will feature one lucky class to be sent to the Hunger Games together. Mr. Dressler's honors history class tried to ignite revolution in Panem. And for their trouble, they will be sent to the arena together. Join us by making a high school junior (16-17 years old) from District 11. See the Battle Royale Subforum for more information. We aim to start in December so now's the time to start developing your character!

    And many thanks to Sixth Station members for their characters, posts, creativity and work. Thank you to everyone mentioned and unmentioned for the work put into making this site the great board it is.

Thank You

After four years, we have decided to close down Sixth Station. The site has meant so much to many of us who spent countless hours into our game. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our game.

The 101-Fall Hunger Games are wrapping up. You have 24-48 hours to enter the final posts. Members can still post in the "History of Sixth Station" and the "Connection" forums.

District 6
Medicine

District 6 specializes in medicine and medicinal research. It produces almost all of the legal medications known to Panem residents, and most of it is shipped to the Capitol for consumption. The lives of District 5 residents are comfortable, and they have free time and some extra income to go to other activities. Still, they are far from being as poor as the lower districts, and some residents even have cars.

As a district that specializes in medicine, District 6 produces medications, medical personnel, and medicinal research. That is, the residents who follow through with this occupation generally know a lot about medicine. The researchers are constantly looking for ways to better the lives of Panem residents, though research positions are few and far between. Some people work in manufacturing (factories), advertising, or finance.

Not all occupations involve medicine, however; there are other jobs that make District Six—and any society—function. Doctors, shopkeepers, gardeners, teachers, etc are all common jobs. The most notable thing is that the people who work these jobs are paid more than people who hold similar jobs in lower districts.

District Six does not produce Careers. Its residents typically do not train for the Hunger Games and, overall, do not like the Hunger Games.

Medicine and medicinal research allows the Capitol to remain healthy. District residents receive some of the benefits of this industry as well. District 6 often has the most doctors and the most access to medications. Other districts receive medication, though at a higher price. Access to medication allows the work force to remain healthy enough to continue to produce for the Capitol. However, it has also resulted in a black market for medicines, both legal and illegal. Some people purchase shady medications in the hopes that the one who sold it to them is truthful in the goods. This has result in death and serious injury since not all of the dealers are honest in that what they say they sell and what they actually do sell are the same things.

Residents of District Six live in nice houses and apartments. They don’t live nearly as nicely as the residents of 1, 2 and 3, but they are not lacking in functionality, space and comfort. Their clothing is average with some hand-me-downs, but nothing extreme, and to save money, furniture is also handed down as well, though sometimes purchased new. Houses generally have a small front yard or back yard. Some people live in apartments either due to financial concerns or because they prefer not to have the upkeep up a house. To compare, District Six residents live similarly to much of modern day first world, more specifically the middle class.

Because of their relative wealth, District Six residents find themselves with free time and disposable income. They have access to museums, markets, and shopping. Like the first world, they have strip malls and other places to purchase items. District Six residents do wear make up and keep groomed, but you will not find a District Six resident—or any resident in Panem—wearing crazy make up, strange hair styles, or facial piercings, which are reserved for the Capitol.

There are many playable locations in District Six, and to list them all would be tedious. Instead of giving you a limited number of places to play, below is a list of places that are definitely within District Six and you may play should you like. You can expect them to have:

- Separate preschool, K-6, junior high, and high school
- Hospital
- Government buildings
- Peacekeeper office
- Orphanage
- Strip malls, shopping centres
- Offices
- Gardens and parks
Here are some specific locations:

Residences
District residents live in comfort. They have nice houses that, while not necessarily furnished with the newest or latest trends, are more than decent and very homey. The majority of people live in single-family homes in suburban neighborhoods, though some opt for apartments. District residents live similarly to middle-class families in modern first-world countries.

Library
A large research library with a variety of non-fiction books (and an assortment of fiction novels) is the draw to many other districts. All of the books found within are Capitol approved and controlled. Most focus on medicine, but there are others delving into other fields. Open year round to District 6. Limited hours open to Districts 1-5, 7-9. Closed to Districts 10-12.

Park
A sprawling green with a children's playground is one of the most well known of parks in the districts.

Haunted House
This residence is "legitimately" haunted, and people come from all over to spend a night--or even a few hours--within the boarded up abandoned house. It is technically closed to the public, but people still sneak inside. None of the happenings within it have yet to be proven by science, though perhaps that is because people are content scaring themselves with stories.

Abandoned District 10
With the District expansion came the overtaking of what used to be District 10 before District 10 moved northward. Abandoned cattle yards, slaughter houses, and storage facilities have yet to be turned into useful buildings. (The ones closer to the city have already been converted into research facilities or destroyed to create housing and residential areas.) Many of the tools of the trade have been removed.

Open Fields
Where the cattle used to roam, open fields now stand. One day they'll be converted to something useful for District 6, but for now, they are only ghosts of what used to be.

Forests
To the south of the city lie forests, vast spaces filled with trees and adventure. The forests creep up to the edges of suburban neighborhoods and shopping centres. There are a few hiking trails through here, but not everyone likes to stick to the beaten path.
