Announcing Nick's Hunger Games Official Relaunch! November 1st, 2012!
Hello, Panem. 16 years ago today, a treaty ended the dark age we call the Rebellion. Under the terms set forth in that treaty, the twelve districts would each send forward two tributes, between the ages of twelve and eighteen, to compete in an annual competition known as the Hunger Games. These twenty-four tributes would compete in a battle to the death. The winner will receive for their district, a years supplement of food, and for themselves, money and food to last a lifetime. Each district would choose these tributes by a random selection, deemed the "Reaping". Today we gather for this selection ceremony. I hereby announce that the sixteenth annual Hunger Games, have now begun.
