Secret Societies

Central Crossing gained it's first secret society in 2008 with the underground work of The Merywether-Lewis Society. It's primary purpose is the continuation of information regarding certain intellectual papers. These papers are hidden within the depths of the school ground. It is no mere task to find them, but a quest, a quest for the ultimate knowledge. The clues evolve in difficulty as they arise. The first of these elusive documents, is only available to those who know the art of Parkour or Gymnastics. When one seeks enlightenment, they search to past authors who can broadcast their message.

Good Luck, for this journey is years in the making. Its completion will not be met for years. As you embark, remember to never let the secret die.

Clue: "The night falleth and the trolls emerge from the open doors to lick the grime from there masters house.
