    Heh, I hope you guys know you don't actually have to refer to it as Vague City! I just do that because I've never dropped its actual name

    I'm trying to express the following sentiment(I love this and would add to it, but I need a character's license) without sounding like a salty bitch. Anyone got pointers?
    Dooms I feel like I should point out something to you here;

    A character's only really rubbish when nobody wants to fight them, that's when you basically have to make a new one. I'd say that perhaps in your case this is true, but people have expressed the desire to battle you and your character in the past, yet you've turned them down. So you not having this supposed "character's license" is really completely of your own doing. If you wanna be official, just challenge some people. If everyone turns you down, then you need to do some more rewriting. But at this rate, I doubt literally everyone will turn you down for a battle.

    Also, I'm not entirely sure as to what this thread is (I'm sorry Dan but I seriously can't wrap my head around your phrasing this time), but I believe it's just a dump for people to throw stuff they reference in their stories, so other could possibly reference it too in their own. If you want you can just throw something out there, there's no problem with it being here because ultimately everyone ends up choosing for themselves whether they use it or not.

    EDIT ; Also Dan this will forever be Sierra Pines for me now, as EB pointed it out. So even if everyone else falls to the temptations of the Vague side, I will remain as a bastion of light forever defending Sierra Pines. Come at me plebs.

    PSA: VAGUE CITY IS NOT MEANT TO BE AN ACTUAL NAME, DAMMIT

    And yeah Vern, pretty much. Partially a battle tool and partially world building for the people who want to use it. If Writer A always has their gladdy in Beer and Babes Bar, a quick reference page would he an easy alternate than having to dig through all the stories to duck tape a profile for it together. Same deal for reoccurring side characters not explicitly listed on profiles

    I don't know if I completely agree with you there, Crank. I kind of like the name.

    Obviously The Healing Hands Clinic is going in here.

    As is an assortment of NPCs, a museum, some other buildings, a pub, a pool hall, a café, a clock-shop, etc.

    Also, just curious, but would anyone terribly mind if I wrote up a "general" city layout? I know a ton of use an old-town/down-town kind of theme, there have been references to a harbor, other references to an industrial section, etc, so that might be interesting (yes, I would keep things open-ended for customization).

    Also, as for naming I personally just go with SP City. SP could stand for Sierra Pines, or the more typical Stickpage...or Sarsaparilla Pekinese. You never know. If I work with someone that has a naming conflict, I just try to avoid naming the city at all in that piece so that there isn't any over-lap.

    I would mind. I have ideas for an airport, a very large mall, and a large business complex. I suppose though it depends on how open you keep things.

    I always thought of Vague City, or whatever you want to call it, as a larger than average city. Maybe the size of Spokane Washington? Idk, something around that size. An airport, a ton of restaurants, etc.

    I always though it was something like New York, Vegas, or any of those large cities.

    Heh, when I bust out caps it's largely for sarcasm. I think it's hilarious I keep reading it, to be honest!

    I've always seen it as a bit of a metropolis bordering an impressive forest, but still with suburbs on the side.
