Viva Las Vegas

So we finally settled on a city for the City Creation portion of the Dresden Files RPG Burning Alpha test. We were torn between LA Basin, Seattle and Las Vegas. After much discussion we decided that we would start with Vegas and if we felt the itch to hit another city, we could do that as well. So, here we go. Las Vegas... Dresdenized


City: Las Vegas (Sin City, The Entertainment Capital of the World)

  • What Happens in Vegas stays in Vegas
  • Townies and tourists always make trouble
  • That's nothing, just wait till you see what's here next weekend.
Notes: Las Vegas (Spanish: "The meadows") is the most populous city in the state of Nevada, the seat of Clark County, and an internationally renowned major resort city for the gaming industry, shopping, and entertainment. Las Vegas, billed as The Entertainment Capital of the World, is famous for the number of large casino resorts and their associated entertainment. The city's tolerance for various forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of Sin City, and this image has made Las Vegas a popular setting for films and television programs. Outdoor lighting displays are everywhere on the Las Vegas Strip and are seen elsewhere in the city as well; as seen from space, Las Vegas is the brightest city on earth.

Location: UNLV (University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Home of the Rebels)

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) is a public, coeducational university located in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, known for its programs in History, Engineering, Environmental Studies, Hotel administration, Fine Arts, and Management Information Systems.
