I've been kicking around this 1930's Weird War II game for months and months now, in which fine art and Nazis feature prominently. I don't know when or if it will ever get off the ground, but thoughts have returned to it lately. Prompted by such things as Christian's Pathfinder "game in a city block" setting in Lovitar, and Michael Curtis' Haunted House adventure, I've started to think small. As in small town. As in, "if this game ever gets started, where will it start?"
There's a lot of rationale for beginning the game in a big city, especially given that fine art would be a big part of the game. But I also like the idea of beginning small, in a smaller town. It's more manageable for me as a GM. And there's something to be said for knowing your neighbors, even if they turn out to be Nazis and/or Cthulhu cultists.
So, any suggestions? Some scenic European (or American) hamlet chock full of 1930's weirdness?
