The weather has begun to grow colder throughout Panem, though it is harsher in some places than others. The north has frequent snow and below freezing temperatures, but the south has a much milder winter.
For 99 years, Panem has prospered. They moved forward from the Dark Days, issuing a new era with the annual Hunger Games. However, not everyone was happy with the way things turned out.
As year 100 rolled around, the Rebellion struck, evacuating those that they could to a new colony. While the Capitol tightens their hold on the Districts, those in the Rebellion work towards freedom for all.
From the Darkest Hour We Rise is an AU Hunger Games site, taking place in the 100th year of Panem. Take a look around and make sure to check out all the important information. We are excited for you to join us!

Just southwest of the Capitol, District One has always been favoured as one of the more elite societies in Panem. All luxury goods are provided by this District, including jewelry, wine, and many other necessities to the Capitol lifestyle. Perhaps the greatest exports of the district are its mighty Career tributes, who have been known to dominate the ranks of Panem’s victors.

To the north of its sister district, Two is nestled among the rocky mountains. The people here are known to be strong and hardworking, making them ideal for their two major industries. From the mountainside, many workers quarry the stone needed across the nation. Those great rocky monoliths are home than more to granite, though. District Two is the home of Panem’s Peacekeeping force. Their headquarters lies in the Nut, a hollowed out mountain fortress.

Northeast of the Capitol, District Three is the heart of all technology in Panem. Scientists, engineers, and other brilliant minds work in factories and laboratories to produce many of the modern marvels seen throughout the country. The citizens of this District even provide technical support to those in the Capitol when it is needed. Education is highly valued here, and the training available is the best available outside the Capitol.

The people here are known for their proficiency with swimming and boating and pride themselves on the unique beauty of their home. As one of the three Career districts in Panem, Four is revered for the strength of the young men and women who come from it's sandy beaches to fight in the Arena.

Southeast of the Capitol, District Five has access to plentiful resources which are harnessed to provide power to Panem. The beautiful red rock landscape is unlike any other part of the country, and the people are just as diverse and lovely as their home. Engineers and technicians work together to ensure that no part of Panem is forced to go without the power that fuels the economy.

In the northern prairies, District Six is centrally located such as to provide a home base for all transportation in Panem. The people here produce everything from the railroad tracks that connect the country to trains and hovercrafts that transport officials around the nation. Their mechanics maintain all vehicles and roadways and ensure everyone travels safely to their destinations. Surviving bitter cold winters and hot, dry summers, the citizens of District Six are a hardened and proud people.

In the far northwest of Panem, the generous lands of District Seven house the forests which provide wood to the nation. Working not only as lumber jacks, but also in the mills and carpentry factories, the citizens here create everything from the finest furniture for the Capitol to the desks that sit in every classroom across the country. The weather here is temperate, although it frequently rains the further west you travel. Seven is a truly remarkable place with greenery at every turn to admire.

South of those plains, the open meadows make way for the livestock industry of District Ten. Among the green pastures, a variety of domesticated animals are raised to provide meat, leather, rare crafting materials, and even pets to the people of Panem. The people here are some of the kindest you will every meet, with an inclination toward hospitality. Perhaps it comes from their dedication to rearing their herds and flocks with that special touch only the folks of District Ten could provide

In the deep south of Panem, the sprawling acreage of District Eleven is dedicated to producing fruits, vegetables and cotton. The hard working people here spend long hours in the fields planting, tending, and harvesting the crops that flourish each season. The humid climate makes for sweltering days in the summer, but despite this the land is very much a part of their lives and they celebrate its fruits with each harvest that passes.

Within the eastern mountains, the coal that powers Panem is mined by the people of District 12. In the Seam, where the miners and their families live, the air is often filled with the dark soot of their hard labor. This mountainous land is not without its beauty, though. From the trails that cut through the un-mined mountain tops to the flowers of the meadow and the stunning view from the overlook, it is no wonder the citizens here are proud of their unique home.

Beyond the boundaries of the districts lie the wastelands of Panem. In this vast space between each population center, people from neighbouring areas can meet with others they might never otherwise have known. It is illegal to trespass into the wastelands, but that doesn't stop the brave few from doing so. Citizens should beware of peacekeepers and wild animals in this untamed land. THIS SIDE IS ACCESSIBLE BY DISTRICTS 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, AND THE CAPITOL.
