I actually think that a convention or similar would be great for a scene. Trying to track down as suspect in a room full of cosplayers.
I agree that the cheesiness of meeting people cosplaying as the main character should be avoided however.

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, Wales. - Thanks to Arabin on the World Works forums, otherwise I would never have heard of the place. :P

The Auld Grump, who can actually pronounce that... slowly. :P

Places not to have epic battles:

In a geriatric ward. During quiet hours.
In an in-service ice cream truck.
In a loaded "short bus".
While all combatants are tied to chairs.
In a public restroom stall (just the stall).
In a duct.
In one of those inflatable castles kids jump around in at the fair.
Boring, Oregon.
In a cardboard recycling depot.
In a pillow warehouse.
At a puppy breeding farm.
Hip-deep in raw sewage.

But this would be so… so… cool!

Unless it's against some sort of trash creature while the walls close in, you're right. Otherwise, it'd stink.

Pretty sure I saw this on TV once - mind you it was a comedy/action show, but....

Done this one - 1880s, the sewers beneath Paris, not good for any concerned, but at least the guy with the flame thrower realized that using it would be a bad idea. :o

The bouncy castles reminds me vaguely of Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome.

I can't hear the phrase "bouncey castle" and NOT think about the bit in the Doctor Who episode "New Earth" where Cassandra has taken over Rose's body...

Slight thread Hijack, great film.  Hot Fuzz will be in my hands tomorrow on DVD!

I would love to play through a Hot Fuzz inspired game!  A shoot out in a grocery store is my top priority in my next spycraft game I run. 

On the subject of kiddie amusements how about an epic battle in one of those ball pools, with the millions of multicolored softball sized balls?   Or a Water Treatment plant(Raw Sewage Vats!)  Totally not dramatic a few miles outside of a small town in a corn field, led there by a low speed chase on a thrasher and tractor!
You're now realizing Fantasy Craft's rules makes it easy to play a gelatinous cube with levels in assassin.

Oooh, and all of the black balls are actually filled with some kind of biological weapon, so the agents need to be careful about which balls they break.

This would be awesome.  How many other times would you be able to have control bellow "AGENTS! WE NEED YOU TO SECURE THOSE BALLS!" :)
Don't follow your passion.  Take it with you.
