As the Treaty of Treason states: "In penance for their uprising, each district shall offer up a male and a female between the ages of 12 and 18 at a public "reaping". These tributes shall be delivered to the custody of the Capitol. And then transferred to a public arena, where they will fight to the death until a lone victor remains. Henceforth and forevermore this pageant shall be known as The Hunger Games."
This year, the tributes will be given two months in the Capitol to prepare for the nightmares they will face in the arena. One year before the Quarter Quell, this year will prove to be the best yet in the eyes of the Capitol.
