I'm running an Unknown Armies game for a convention in Boston in a week, and I need a floorplan for an asylum or sanitarium. Google's proven fruitless; can anyone offer anything?

Hello. I'm new around here and still pretty new to the RP World as a whole. Basically, I started out in March 2002 and became a moderator of the game earlier in Fall this year. The reason I joined this community here is that most of you seem to have a lot of experience when it comes to RPGs, and I hope that you'll be able to help me/us with the troubles I am/we are running into.

The game I play is a little bit touchy because we are portraying real people, namely celebrities.
EDIT to add: None of the players are supposed to know each other in real life. Now, of course after playing for a while, some of them met, became friends or enemies... whatever. Point is: this is an online celebrity RPG community, perhaps the largest of its kind.

Problems two, three and four are somehow related.
I increasingly get the feeling that the system this game has worked with since 2001, is terribly outdated. To this day, characters just kind of created and made themselves known somehow. I think it's impossible to keep this up, simply because there are so many characters in the game, and even though there are countless celebrities in this World, we are getting to a point where you have to be really careful when choosing a character.

Thus, the real question is: how can we change the creation process in a smooth manner, and advertize it so ALL potential newbies know about it. (Newbies to the game wouldn't be such a problem here because they usually tend to read up on the game before starting up. But when veteran players create new characters, I just know they won't check for changes in the rules.)
