Two questions: Did Rod, himself, have a “Rod”? As in, was he himself once a project in the same way he makes other men his projects now? And is Pigtown’s geographical location fixed, or is it like Springfield, where the specifics change for what the area and the plot want them to be? I kinda like the latter idea, it gives this eldritch quality to the area as a concept, reaching out with a literal will of its own.

#1: Did Rod have a “Rod”? In pretty much everything I’ve written regarding Pigtown, no, not really. Rod is a person who, through a series of unfortunate events, became a part of Pigtown–more a part of it’s consciousness than anything else. He can’t leave the premises, or can only do so under special conditions. He’s not quite human at this point, but that doesn’t mean I know what he is.

#2: It’s geographical location is not fixed. Nothing about Pigtown, as a place, is fixed. Pigtown is a bar, or an area surrounding a bar. It could be any kind of bar. Generally it’s located in an urban locale, but this isn’t necessarily always the case. This is less an eldritch thing, and really just a consequence of the fact that Pigtown is a setting, not a world, in writer speak.
