Well here are a few ideas I thought of.

- a secret underground cryogenics lab
- a hanger housing and alien craft
- a partially completed stadium
- an abandoned stadium
- a hight top ski resort
- the ghetto (ala Death Wish 3)
- an all womens school
- a gaming convention
- submerged building in Venice

- random bursts of radiation
- locals having a drunken loud party
- police have been tipped off to you
- the fbi starts investigating nearby
- nobody can know what you are really up to

- a secret nazi army
- Cowboyish gunslingers
- to back up godfather punk RUSSIANS!
- a group of highly trained assassians in disguise
- a lawfirm with their own security team
- a group of gamers who have decided to take over the world

Also as for the print of pdf question.
I personally like print a hell of a lot more than pdf.  But as a person wanting to make money off of this a lot of it depends on wether or not you think it will sell.  Pdf is a safer way to go, and I understand that completely.  Lower amount of risk involved with the potential to make money.  The main risk being pirate copies.  

So my vote is for print.  But thats from a consumer point of view.

pdf or print:
I prefer print but I would buy pdf too.  I can live with softcover.
Is 'Print On Demand' risk free or is there still a big start-up cost for this option?
How big do you think the target audience would be for this game (not raw numbers but in terms of D&D > other D20 > Buffy ?> AFMBE > Underworld > TLE > My Life with Master)?



Just got some more locations today.

An airplane graveyard.
The catacombs under Paris.
An abandoned amusement park.
In a national landmark.
An abandoned newpaper printing facility.
Huge lumberyard.
At a biker convention, ala Sturgis.
A mall after hours.
In a building wired for destruction the next day.

Okay thats it for now ... again.
