The main problem with doing that, Sephy, is that schools work differently in different parts of the U.S. Example: school started back August 10th this year in Oklahoma, but didn't start till August 21st in Arkansas. Oklahoma schools will get out in mid to late May, Arkansas schools will get out in early June. And that's in regions where the states border one another. In contrast, Pennsylvania schools don't start back till September 5th, and Florida/California schools started sometime in between. A big part of when school should and should not be in session varies from place to place.

And really, you do have a legitimate point. We've got roleplayers from all over the world on this site, it's not surprising that people in the U.K. and elsewhere don't know about the American school system. Lord knows I don't have the slightest clue about yours. I can't really help with when pre-game takes place, because in my personal opinion it doesn't make sense to be taking place in the timeframe that it is. I can, however, help with other details concerning the school system -- like the fact that many people get confused about grades.

I think Kai did a good job of providing information (specifically the standard ages for certain grades) on the biography template, but people still have questions. On the topic of time, though, I just don't know. As it stands, being almost July, school should be ending shortly even WITH the teacher's strike delaying classes, so it really doesn't give us much of a time frame to work with. If the time hadn't been so quickly accepted as canon, my vote would be to just disregard it, because the only one with the *correct* knowledge of when V2 takes place is Kaishi.
