Well Shadows of Asia had a few parts of Japan seriously damaged by the Mt. Fuji eruption, you could try those. Drawbacks is that it's a fairly recent event and there are active recovery efforts.

Isn't there that African ghoul nation? Forget the name off the top of my head right now. It isn't really blowed up though, if that is an actual requirement instead of just being a good place to look for ghouls.

I'd say Los Angeles is also pretty beat up right now, though there aren't specifics yet.

@ Blakkie
Kinda breaking canon. Well, not kinda, AM. The group I play SR with, I also play WoW with, and we're looking at kinda integrating the WoW Races and some lore, with SR.

If your familiar with Warcraft, you know that, on a basic level, The Forsaken are for the most part Ghouls, free from the binds of the Lich King, and independent of his will. There are still your typical undead, flesh eating Ghoul types, but these guys are different.

So I need an Undercity, which happens to be Bitola, Macedonia.

Ghouls don't need too much metahuman flesh. They get most of their nutrition from the same animals that everyone else eats. The higher costs of real meat can be offset by the fact that they can only eat rotting meat, meaning that they can buy the stuff that isn't fit for human consumption at a fraction of the price it is worth. Grocery corporations should jump at that since they would have to throw the meat away otherwise.

Nah, they usually put the meat that is starting to turn funky into spaghetty sauce.

Another good place for a ghoul enclave would be somewhere in the Balkan microstates or in what's left of Romania or Bulgaria. They're pretty much hell-holes anyway and a strong force of ghouls could thrive in a ruined city there... with the skirmishes still ongoing, they'd have plenty of food, too.

Just thought I'd stop in and say I like your WoW/SR integration idea. Also, it's nice to know that there is actaully a ghoul nation, what book is that found in? I like the whole ghoul idea and have been trying to come up with ways to involve them more in runs I plan.

Why not Chicago? It's were the ghoul liberation movement (don't remember the name) that managed to get a shortlived sentience status reclamation through was based, I believe. But I guess a collection of ghouls with their souls intact would chose a place that's easier to clear of mindless ghouls.

In Europe, you should be able to find a place that suits your needs. Lots of flooded cities in the Netherlands, irradiated towns in UK or within the SOX, or even an entombed city (a la Pompei) in France's Auvergne volcanoes area.
