    Boo, I was hoping we'd have th locations spoiled for us! This is the chapter I'm mosted excited for, oddly enough; it was the best part of B&S for me. We know one of the three European locations is Bristol, we know the Japanese location is Tokyo, and we know the Australian location is in the middle of the Outback; that leaves two more European spots, two in the States, and one in the Middle East. Place your bets now!

      Baghdad, Denver ( or wherever the Rockies book was) and.... Boston!

        Bristol is one of mine, as is one of the other European Hunting Grounds. The Hunting Grounds were a lot of fun to write and I hope you guys and girls enjoy them

        I don't think it's a massive spoiler to point out that Boston already has an entire Mage setting book about it and hence is probably an unlikely bet for a Hunting Ground

        Generally, expect new stuff that hasn't been already covered elsewhere, with the exception of Tokyo.

          Australia sounds good! I'm excited for the rest. B&S really sealed the deal for Vampire with me, and while I appreciate the rules and powers-upgrades it's really the settings that are my favorite part of the book. They're little pre-packaged campaigns that I can instantly see play out.

          Oh, go deal with those vengeance spirits again. Oh look, azlu pretending to be spider spirits. Wait, what's this? What're Americans doing here? Oh shit an Idigam-thing-whatever! Signal the Dreaming!

              I wish, but honestly the Rockies have more than enough material to work with already. Between the Manitou Springs QuickStart, the appendix in the original core book, Hunting Grounds: the Rockies, us Coloradans have plenty to draw from for locally set games. Much as I'd like to get even more, it really is time for somewhere else to get a chance.

                I might like to see Texas have a hunting ground. Private property rights here are held sacrosanct, so it'd be a good way to highlight the possessiveness that Uratha feel for their territory.

                  El Paso's been a setting I've been thinking about doing a write up for for a couple of gamelines. Might poke it over the seven week break.

                    Well, in Australia there are some of the most poisonous spiders, so a large presence of Azlu would be understandable.

                      Here's hoping for Florida. I was a little disappointed to see no Africa or South/Central America. But I was pleased to hear about a Middle East locationI do suppose we are at least somewhat limited by the places the writers personally know about, and I appreciate wanting to aim for accuracy.

                      Anyways, I liked the write-up for Australia. The Fire-Touched seem a bit different, I got a kick out of the church flyer, and the sample NPCs, spirits and plot hooks seemed well handled.

                            I must say, love what you've done.

                            Especially given how...poorly werewolf games have handled Aussie-land before (*cough*Rage Across Australia*hack*).

                            This is more than enough to get the bad taste out of my mouth.

                              Well i'll have to check it out then-somehow I never read that part of the Pure.
