The Letters Page Podcast: HIPPA compliant since 2017!

Wow, that was a long string of... stuff near the end there! :O I need to go back and listen to it again!

I wish Christopher had posted the map. :(

We actually received permission to share screenshots, so here are a couple (although they aren't great quality): 

First Image

Second Image

Reminder, though: This is the map for the SC RPG timeline, post-OblivAeon reconstruction. (So nothing like the Miststorm Universe's. ;-)

Oh hooray, the most ridiculous question I will probably ever ask got into this one.

I was equally kind of surprised the map wasn't in the show notes, though as Rabit noted there are screenies.

If by "stuff" you mean all the post-OblivAeon comic titles and summaries, Christopher was nice enough to provide the actual document so they should be verbatim in WT's eventual summary notes.

Thanks, Rabit. :D It's fascinating to go look at Google Maps and see what's actually being replaced by the city. Which is at the easternmost point of Pennsylvania, interestingly enough, right where it pokes into New Jersey.

Major kudos for that question, Kid Radical. XD

You know in retrospect TakeWalker I'm surprised you're not more excited that Fashion got upgraded to solo book main character material.

I kinda overloaded too much to gather my thoughts in the specific, but you better believe I soaked every word of that blessed reveal into my soul.

Heck Arataki, Fashion is where the real character drama is. :D

So, Rook City is (sort of) Philadelphia...

Why am I now envisioning The Gang from "It's Always Sunny..." getting involved with The Organization?

Looking at that map, it’s more accurate to say Rook City is Trenton, New Jersey. That seems worse, right?

Levittown, too, is right close.  Rook City definitely has its Rust Belt roots situated...

Also, discussing Casanova as a David Bowie analog and then positing the story as him eventually teaming up with his Xtreme counterpart 100% made me think of the 90s David Bowie collaborations with Nine Inch Nails

I have heard that David Bowie went on to lead The Guild of Calamitous Intent in the 20 teens

OH SHOOT.

I lived in Ravenwood for 3 years, apparently...

Placing Rook City right near Trenton is kind of funny from the perspective of tying in to Legacy's backstory. If you look at a map of the real area, you'll notice that across the river from Trenton is the town of Washington Crossing -- as in Washington crossing the Delaware to go fight the Battle of Trenton.
