    If Geist doesn't have El Paso or Ciudad Juarez(or both) as a setting, I will eat one of my hats.

    Plus the mirage of an Oasis seems like just kind of dick/desperate move the denizens of the Great Below might pull if they can.

    Come for a drink and stay... FOREVER. (Or long enough that we aren't counting anymore)

    Eastern Europe seems like a good place, as it was occupied by both Nazis and Soviet satellites.

    Mexico is just so much of a must, I'll eat a figurative hat if it's not in there.

    Given that the Underworld has become even more watery in aesthetic, somewhere that's watery in the living world seems like a neat idea. My first thought was Venice, but that's too close to Eastern Europe maybe. Jakarta or Manila?
    In the same vein, somewhere in the desert. Maybe somewhere associated with history and opulence, like Samarkand.

    Also, Aokigahara has already been used for Demon. It's in the Storyteller's Guide as a large-scale piece of Infrastructure that uses the willing deaths of the suicides to keep Mt. Fuji from erupting, IIRC.

    I'm hoping we at least get a blurb on that church in the Czech Republic, the Sedlec Ossuary.

    Geist has moved steadily along. I wonder how soon after the last we could end up seeing the pdf version of the book.

    I feel your pain Second Chances. Finished my grades 1.5 weeks ago and I'm still mentally recovering

    But to be serious...nah, signature settings have not been revealed or hinted at (as far as I know).

    Although I suppose it's not going to matter too much, since we're going to be seeing the manuscript sooner then later.

    Make it easy on yourself. Just give them all C’s and be done with it. Wait, better make them A’s. You’d have fewer complaints that way.

    EDIT: Also, shouldn't that be settings?
