PreppiePunk: HP Academy

In addition to all the classics of the School Genre of fiction: Dead Poets Society, Catcher in the Rye, Gossip Girl, etc, there is a sub-genre that deal with malevolent and/or occult happenings at these schools. The question is, or rather was, would the greatest game ever about Prep-school students be able to handle it, wor would your favorite game designer need to doa a shameless cash grab, launch a kickstarter, just to reskin the book with an extra section on shit like this? Maybe I’ll get some self-proclaimed punk-rock/ rock-star game designers to write a couple paragraphs for me.
