Welcome to Wood Lake, IL, population 5,000.

A fictional town an hour's drive south of Chicago, Wood Lake is a quiet, sleepy little Midwest town settled on the shore of a small, man made lake. Not a lot goes on in Wood Lake - people go to school and work part time jobs, adults work just to make the money to take trips into Chicago on the weekends and life, life is easy. Two schools, kindergarten to sixth and seventh to twelfth, sit in the middle of town, surrounded by a shopping plaza, locally owned food joints, and a library. The citizens are usually working or learning, drinking with buddies on the weekends or just hanging out and being themselves in town.

It's time to step back from the fast-pace of the big city games and just relax where life is quiet and fun, where you can hang out in your friends' basements and just dork out over movies, video games and hang out and drink because what else is there to do?
