  1. It was Babylon 5 and was set aboard a space station.
  2. Saint Mary's Hospitals and the Children's Hospital of San Angelo have merged with the University Medical Center. UMC Saint Mary's General Hospital and UMC Children's Hospital of San Angelo have moved into state of the art facilities on the western side of the University of California San Angelo campus.
  3. I sent Reggie an email at his Yahoo! address and posted a message to the Court of Dreams RPG Facebook page this morning. I'll let you know if he replies.
  4. Some, like the one here in Pittsburgh, are promotional gimmicks. Some are poorly made. These are obviously Foxbat's work. Others are well made.
  5. True, but someone else could start a magical girls campaign in another city and move Ravenswood there.
  6. I know. I'm hoping Reggie sees this and realizes that there is still some interest in the Dreamstar and the Court of Dreams campaign.
  7. The northern part of Samuel Brackett City Park is based on Pittsburgh's Highland Park. It has the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium, two reservoirs for treated water, a bike track, athletic fields, playgrounds, a lake, a pool, picnic groves, gardens, and trails. The southern part is based on Pittsburgh's Schenley Park. It has a golf course, a pool, an outdoor ice rink, athletic fields, picnic groves, playgrounds, the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, statues, trails, and a lily pond with a memorial to George Westinghouse that could be replaced by one to Samuel Brackett. T
  8. I'm just rethinking Her Sunnyness. In her heroic identity, she is a skilled gymnast and trained in ninjutsu. (A previous Sunspell was a stuntwoman.) While she can form any ninja weapon out of solar energy, her favorites are the katana, throwing stars, and cat claws.
  9. Yeah. Norfolk Southern, CSX, and Amtrak go through Erie. A thought I just had was Santa Barbara County. Wayne Air Force Base could by replaced by Vandenburg Air Force Base.
  10. Plus, the shortest distance between two points in Pittsburgh is always under construction. The idea was to use the map of Pittsburgh as the map of Coastal City. But, using Erie as the basis for Coastal City is worth looking at. Presque Isle Bay could become Coastal City Bay.
  11. You're right, Hudson City is a great resource. I have the PDF on my laptop.
  12. California's San Pablo Bay is also a good location, probably in Sonoma County.
  13. Both the Wisconsin and Michigan shores of Lake Michigan also have lots of potential.
  14. I was thinking of having the team, possibly a teenage one, in the Matagorda Bay area.
  15. Coastal City could also be on the Gulf Coast. The states there are Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Vibora Bay, Florida can’t be the only city there with supers.
  16. One good thing about using Pittsburgh as the basis for Coastal City is that maps and references for it are easy to find. The following is from Wikipedia. “The Bridges of Pittsburgh play an important role in the city’s transportation system. Without bridges, the Pittsburgh region would be a series of fragmented valleys, hillsides, river plains, and isolated communities. “A 2006 study determined that Pittsburgh has 446 bridges, and with its proximity to three major rivers and countless hills and ravines, Pittsburgh is known as "The City of Bridges". Th
  17. I had the idea of using a map of Pittsburgh, oriented so that the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers would be at the narrowest part of the bay. The various streams could feed either the bay or the rivers and the part of the Erie Canal in the city would use its rivers.
  18. Coastal City takes up the eastern two thirds of Wayne County. The Erie Canal goes through the lower third of the city. Four regular bridges and four drawbridges span the canal. The NASA telemetry station is south of the canal. SUNY Coastal City and most of the University Medical Center hospitals are north of the canal.
  19. Sodus Bay is renamed Coastal City Bay. There is a channel, that may be one of many creeks or a river, lined with factories. There is also a lighthouse, with two buildings, operated by the Coastal City Bay Historical Society, at the end of the 7,500-foot-long barrier beach. One building is the Coastal City Bay Museum. Frederick Douglass - Greater Rochester International Airport is the closest commercial airport to Coastal City. The other area airports are Wayne Air Force Base, Wayne County Airport (a general aviation airport preferred by business travelers), and C
  20. Unlike Sodus Bay, Coastal City Bay is the city's harbor, making it a Great Lakes port. Of course, there could be marinas and beaches in it, too, as well as plenty of marine life.
  21. Okay. Coastal City Bay is on Lake Ontario in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State.
  22. There are a couple of bays in Washington State on the Pacific coast. Of course, they probably get a lot of rain due to the mountains in the east.
  23. Coastal City is on a bay which includes its harbor. Both Wayne Air Force Base and a NASA telemetry station are nearby.
  24. I'm considering using Coastal City from the 3E book Atlas Unleashed. Besides placing it on a bay, where would be the best place to set it?
