Mackenroth Island is a small, rocky island off the coast of Maine. It is 12 miles to the nearest mainland. The island is 2 miles across and 3 miles long.
It is accessible only by boat and there are no cars or paved roads on the Island.
Once, it was inhabited by Native American people, who used it as a location from which to fish to fertile waters. Now, it is mostly used for tourism, though some fishing and lobstering exists. The stable, constant population has seldom exceeded 50 people in recent years.
For more than 100 years, Mackenroth has been a summer haven for artists and other visitors who appreciate its isolation. It has in the last ten years, become home to a collective of artists, often scorned by the locals for their “hippie” ways.
In the Summer, it is home to any number of families, either camping or staying in small houses they have rented. Once the off season begins with the Fall, it is less popular, but every year a gathering of people come to the Island for a few weeks, making the most of the last moments before the island’s rough beauty becomes more chilly and foreboding.
It’s the Fall, and the leaves are turning. School will be starting back.
Punk is only just starting to happen, with the Sex Pistols and the Ramones, (maybe not in Maine…) Disco is still influential, ABBA have just stormed the world with Dancing Queen, Apple Computers has just been established. Life has changed rapidly since your parents’ generation were teenagers…
People come here once a year, every year.
Maybe you love it.
Maybe you don’t.
Either way, this place rarely changes.
This is a story about coming of age in an isolated place that never really changes, somewhere away from the rest of the world.
I do not create loads of cards, I prefer people to make their own characters…
Also, please use time period appropriate images as much as you can! :D
