This is the current known location list for Los Angeles as of 01/01/2017

Apartment (712 N Kings Rd Unit #101)

This "small" apartment was picked for its location. Its a 3 room apartment with a simple kitchen and living room. Only one bathroom makes the morning showers take more time.

Current setup:
Room 1: Lela, Harmony, Sshas'Kah, Ashling;

Room 2: Edward, John;

Room 3: Leif, Xang, King.


Only for the paranoids:
Let me just take a second to show you that although this is a real location taken from a real real-estate website and though it was picked because of its location and of its looks, the street name is to perfect to exist. You cannot make this things up! Also, completely coincidental magick, trust me, I should know.




LA Hollywood Park Casino


Hollywood Park Casino is a Casino in Inglewood, California. Originally part of the Hollywood Park Racetrack, the casino moved to a new building in 2016 after the closure and demolition of the racetrack in 2013.

In 1994 the Hollywood Park Casino, with a poker card room, was added to the Hollywood Park Racetrack complex. The racetrack was sold and shut down in December 2013 though the casino operations continued while the current casino building opened on October 2016. The casino is part of the Hollywood park site which is currently undergoing redevelopment to include housing, hotels, a theater and the new Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park which will be home to the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers of the National Football League. It is the first building of the complex that has been constructed and opened.

The Hollywood Casino contains 125 tables for both Poker and California Games including chandelier lighting and big-screen televisions on the walls and behind the bar. There are Separate rooms for high-stakes players and celebrity poker tournaments. It also features sit-down restaurant and sports bar. Like it's predecessor only card games are allowed in the casino

LA is known for a LOT of things, its casinos did not make the list. The only casino worth its name in LA is the Hollywood Park Casino. A 5 star hotel complements the gambling place for the world poker players that came for this year's mid season event.

Although this is not the best, biggest or most renown casino in California, it is known in some circles for its costumers coming from... all walks of life...

This huge building is clearly controlled by the technocracy (at least you seem think that way). Current Kvothe last known location, it does not look like heavily fortified.



Santa Monica Pier

With an iconic entrance, the pier is popular with residents and visitors as a landmark that is over 100 years old.

A known Node, you do not know much about it. It is lovely at night or so "they" say.

Somewhat of a surprise is that the Campus is not under Order of Hermes control.

The Getty Center is in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles and is the primary location of the museum. The collection features Western art from the Middle Ages to the present.

Known Toreador and Giovanni estate.



Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels

The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, informally known as COLA or the Los Angeles Cathedral, is a Latin Church cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church in Los Angeles, California, United States of America. Opened in 2002, the cathedral serves as the mother church for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. It is also the cathedral seat of Archbishop José Horacio Gómez.

The structure replaced the Cathedral of Saint Vibiana, which was severely damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Under Cardinal Roger Mahony, the cathedral was constructed in postmodern architecture and formally opened in September 2002. There was considerable controversy over its deconstructivist and modernist design, as well as the high costs to complete the building.

The cathedral is named in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary under the patronal title of Our Lady of the Angels, echoing the full name of the original settlement of Los Angeles (Spanish: El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles, or "The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels"). The cathedral is widely known for enshrining the relics of Saint Vibiana and tilma piece of Our Lady of Guadalupe. It is the mother church to approximately five million professed Catholics in the archdiocese.



Shepherd of the Hills Church


Shepherd Church is a nondenominational church that sits in an old movie theater.

Known as a meeting point for Hunters. They preach that a Hunter's life is fraught with danger. The "bliss of ignorance" has been taken from them and the existence of supernatural manipulation of humanity cannot be ignored. However, the Hunter cannot simply reveal this knowledge to mundane authorities since they will be branded as unstable and insane. Supernatural forces control many human media, law enforcement, and government agencies; any attempt to reveal the existence of these forces would result in the supernatural manipulators using those connections to paint the Imbued as crazy and dangerous, and to dispose of Imbued who snoop in their affairs and try to impede their control.

Hunters wage a desperate, clandestine war against the inhuman, ageless forces that manipulate mankind. They see their task as taking back the night from bloodsuckers, ravaging beasts, vengeful spirits and manipulative sorcerers. The Imbued must face mankind's worst fears made real in the most deadly game of the Hunt in order to fulfill the task they have set before them to "Inherit the Earth".



Museum of Death


Well, you know where this is going...

Museum of Death is a museum with locations in Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, Los Angeles, and New Orleans. It was established in June 1995 by J. D. Healy and Catherine Shultz with the museum's stated goal being "to make people happy to be alive".

The museum displays a wide variety of art and artifacts surrounding the subject of death. Baby coffins are in one section, letters and artwork from various serial killers in another. There are films regarding autopsies as well as graphic photographs of crime victims. There is also a room filled exclusively with taxidermy of various types of animals. The museum's recreation of the Heaven's Gate mass suicide includes the original beds. However, the most notable item at the museum is the head of Henri Landru. In 2014 the museum also acquired Thanatron, one of the original suicide machines built by Jack Kevorkian.

Once a year, the museum holds a Black Dahlia look-alike competition, where contestants have to dress as both pre and post-mortem Dahlia.

Some creepy stories about people went missing after going to the museum are mostly considered creepy pasta and not taken seriously...



Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Walk of Fame comprises more than 2,600 five-pointed terrazzo and brass stars embedded in the sidewalks along 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street in Hollywood, California. The stars are permanent public monuments to achievement in the entertainment industry, bearing the names of a mix of actors, musicians, directors, producers, musical and theatrical groups, fictional characters, and others. The Walk of Fame is administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and maintained by the self-financing Hollywood Historic Trust. It is a popular tourist destination, with a reported 10 million visitors in 2003.

Its a great place to take a walk and meet some zany characters...
