    <A href="http://www.gamebanshee.com/">GameBanshee</A> has an <a href="http://www.gamebanshee.com/interviews/vampirebloodlines1.php">interview</A> with <b>Leon Boyarsky</b> covering many aspects of <a href="http://www.vampire-bloodlines.com">Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines</a>. Here's a little bit about the locations in the game:
    <br>
    <br>
    <blockquote><b>GB: V:tM - Bloodlines will take place in four different "hubs" of a dark Los Angeles. Please detail each of these hubs and how the mood and/or environment will change from one to another.
    <br>
    <br>
    Leonard:</b> The four hubs are Santa Monica, Los Angeles (also known as Downtown), Hollywood and Chinatown.
    <br>
    <br>
    Santa Monica is a sleepy little seaside town, not a lot of huge buildings, it is right on the beach, and the pier contains the colorful Ferris Wheel that can be seen from your haven window.
    <br>
    <br>
    Los Angeles is a city of skyscrapers and feels like much more of an urban setting than any of the other hubs. It’s also fairly imposing in that large buildings always surround you. LA definitely has an industrial, gothic feel to it.
    <br>
    <br>
    Hollywood is basically our version of the Sunset Strip, with the famous Hollywood Hills overlooking it. Because it’s Hollywood, there’s a strip club as well as a smut shop, as well as a few upper crust dance clubs.
    <br>
    <br>
    Our version of Chinatown probably has the moodiest feel of all the hubs, as it feels completely foreign with its fog shrouded skyline and its unique architecture.
    <br>
    <br>
    Of course, since this is the world of darkness, each of these areas, while possessing its own distinct feel, also has an overarching feel of decay and death (and bums and prostitutes for good measure).</blockquote>
    <br>
    <br>
    Can we ride the ferris wheel?

    Vampire sounds good. Hopefully it will be a good rpg.

    That is the oddest characterization of Santa Monica I've ever seen. True, there aren't a lot of skyscrapers (but there aren't a lot in LA as a general rule- a few pockets of fairly tall office buildings/skyscrapers is the best you really get), but it isn't particularly sleepy. Most of it is commerce. Mall, assorted stores, assorted business offices, yet more stores, still more stores, and oh yeah, down there, past the 50 yard strip of grass and palm trees where people walk and skate, is a narrow beach with a pier.
