And before I go to sleep in my coffin own little bed, one last mumbling.

Places where you will never have an epic, climactic battle for a Spycraft campaign.

My entry: Lake Chargoggmaunchaugagoggchaubungungamaugg* near Webster, Massachusetts.

The suburbs in general, and especially a mall.  A scene two running gun battle in the mall, but not the finale.  (Though I would throw in flame throwers and incendiary devices just because malls are hives of scum and villainy.)

Dull Center, Wyoming.
Boring, Maryland.

And some teams might find Whorehouse Meadows, Oregon a trifle distracting.

Does anyone else remember the 'epic battle' that took place in an episode of The Avengers taking place in a comic book factory?

Bam!
Sock!
Pow! (with the signs being used as weapons...).

Another place to avoid - a battlefield covered with nettles and poison ivy.
Underwater chase scenes through jellyfish.

Of course, seeing that post, and  this ---> http://youtube.com/watch?v=lNg7k4wqpeM on the same day, means I HAVE to put it here. Plus I'm all bouncy about it. Though Steve Carey is no Don Adams.

I'd have to refute any claims to sleepy little villages after watching Hot Fuzz.

Hell, Norway. Despite the name, it's really a sleepy little village... (note: that might or might not have any correlation with 'dice's post)

Did Hot Fuzz ever make it to America or is too British?

In a similar vein to Hell, I used to live near Great Heck & Little Heck, currently live near Nether-Thong.

Hot Fuzz was in the mainstream theaters for about a week around here, and recently it's shown up again in the local movie-theater-with-a-bar-and-pizza-place-in.

At a polka dance convention, at a star wars convention or worst of all, at a gaming convention where Spycraft is being played. Every once in a while some movie or show decides to go meta and have their characters meet their "fans/impersonators...." Just say no.

As far as town names --

For the humorous: how 'bout Forks of Salmon, California?

For the anticlimactic: Climax (NC, PA, Saskatchewan - take your pick)

Incidentally, one of my favorite Spycraft DM's family has a house on lake Chargoggmaunchaugagoggchaubungungamaugg. No, I haven't played Spycraft there. Yet.
