Welcome to Riverwood! Riverwood is a small, imaginary town set in Georgia in the fall of 2012. It's quaint, quiet, and everyone knows everyone. It's the sort of place you want to grow up in and come back to raise your children in. Located an hour from Atlanta, it's just far enough away to have its own little community. We are a mature, friendly board and we would certainly be happy to have you aboard.

Cafeteria Cafeteria food has never been good but now that they're trying to make things "healthier", it's pretty gross. Most students don't have time to go and buy food outside of school during lunch so they're stuck here.
Downtown Riverwood This part of Riverwood is where you'll find most of your small business and the quirky shops and things that you won't find in the mall. A few of the 'alleys' are closed off to cars and only bikes and pedestrians can take these streets, adding a very small town feel to the ever growing population of Riverwood, but still managing to keep that small town atmosphere.
Library The library is one of the oldest buildings in the town and is home to thousands of books about nearly every subject. If it's not there, the librarians would be more than happy to help get you a copy from another town or city.
Chattahoochee River The river flows not far from Riverwood; it's the reason Riverwood has it's name. In the summer it's an excellent place to have boat races and cool off, but in the winter it sometimes floods.
Upperclass Housing The gorgeous mansions and sprawling laws on Riverwoods wealthiest residents. these houses are spread out all over the city and some are even hidden just off a beaten path or two. But watch out for those 'No trespassing' signs -- they mean it!
Middleclass Housing These are the suburbs of Riverwood. They're your average size homes of the middle class citizens. Riverwood is by no means a big town, but its residential area is pretty, clean, and well kept.
Lowerclass Housing Located just on the other side of the local train tracks lies the worst part of Riverwood. It's not a pretty sight to take in and the houses here are sometimes falling apart, or just barely held together. Also across the tracks is the trailer park -- but watch out, most of the town drug deals have places out there.

Apartment Complexes Riverwood has two complexes: the nice, new ones next to the college that are mostly used for college kids and those with a steady job -- and the run down one out on the other side of the zoo.
