One of the things I love about Unknown Armies is how it seems to compel fans to create and share fantastic ideas. I was reminded of this by Eric Brennan's recent thread on RPG.net's forums, outlining a cabal and campaign focused on the fringes of Hollywood stardom and the occult underground.
If you're looking for a taste of what makes Unknown Armies special, or inspiration for putting together your own game, here are links to some fan creations that may interest you.

- An actual play thread for a game called "Shadows of Chicago" also on RPG.net.

- The Sunshine Cab Company (and related RPG.net forum thread).
