OOI, in the off-chance I ever name the radio station Juniper's listening to, do people think RA is East of the Mississippi or West?

I'm thinking RA may be in Illinois which puts it East of the Mississippi but I could be wrong. What does everyone else think?

Small note:

My character's name is Sliver (sli·vr), not Silver. I noticed a lot of people using Silver but I didn't mind it. I just wanted to point it out.

Huh. It is too. I guess we all misread it because he's a silver fox.
Sorry about that!

Well, Nola thinks it's Silver and she's told Thomas. Sally can know she got it wrong, though(!)

It could be Illinois, but Mountain Lions are almost never seen East of the Mississippi which would mean RA is more likely in Missouri. Anywhere further west and you end up in the Great Planes which don't have dense forests. Anywhere further South, and you're officially no longer in the Midwestern States, and RA has been described as Midwestern I believe. Anywhere further north, and at best everyone would be wearing jackets by now. Or the town would be buried in a few feet of snow.

Today viable, breeding cougar populations are found in just the sixteen states of Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota, North Dakota, Texas, and Florida.

There are your choices of where RA can be and have cougars prowling about in the wild.

Also there are the sealed ruins of the Original 1950's town of Richmond Acres somewhere. (in OOC post 1)
that puts it in the Atomic age, who know what experiments went wrong to have to abandon the town.
(IC post 1 states there is a lot of cattle about.)
So the new/rebuilt Richmond Acres is a cattle town?

Hmm. So do any of the states with cougars overlap with the known atomic testing sites, Keeshah?

Also yay! 400!

Okay. Shall we say Colorado then?

I know there's definitely no desert around RA so that rules out Nevada and New Mexico as far as I know. Colorado seems to have mountains, ridges, forests, limestone caves, cougars and nuclear testing sites. So it should work, I think.

As a side question while everyone's collab-ing the setting, is there a general year/year range this takes place in and/or general rules on referencing our universe things as canon? Movies, literature, etc? Presumably not anything immediately up to date but something like Sleeping Beauty? Didn't think to ask previously, though I don't remember seeing a specific ruling on it.

I... honestly thought that was serious for a moment :lol:
But what with the secret lab, phones, GPS systems, etc. I'd guess it's what, 1980 area at the earliest?

I believe it was meant to be around Fall of the year the game was first started.

I always thought of it as early 2010s since that's when I started playing. And yes, we're approaching Halloween.

could explain why there are tunnels under the "new" town of Richmond Acres. Fallout tunnels?

We know some of them are smuggling tunnels from the Prohibition era because that's already been established in the RPs, and that some are natural caves. I think it's definitely possible that some could be bunkers too!
