The Town 100 System

You can, in addition to using the 60 places of the BLOKES system to sequentially picture the data you want to recall, find an image for each of these types of shop or location.
You might even seek 10 locations per shop type. Eg. 10 photos of banks; and, by learning them in sequence, have 100 x 10 locations to recall in sequence.
Here are some icon images I made to represent the 100 shops. You could use it as a peg loci list of 100 - but you would need to memorise them in the order listed above rather than in alphabetical order:List 1 List 2 List 3 List 4 List 5 List 6 List 7 List 8 List 9 List 10
Online, I can go to a site like Flickr where I can use its search engine to type:
It returns to me a big list of photos with at least one person in a bakery or bakery related situation. Eg. Maybe someone is holding a baguette in a kitchen.
Consider that I have a law case to remember facts about: Saloman vs Saloman. If I can have an image of a person who, for my purposes, is the start of a story for remembering that law case's facts, then I can learn the visual story in sequence and thus recall case facts in sequence. That's the theory..
But if the facts are being prompted by AA-ZZ image words and 00-99 number images then the story might become quite messy to learn.
You can reduce the clutter by having a sequential list of actions (see the Actions article); and the person can be imagined doing each action in sequence; and the revision note item is the recipient of the action.
The person doing Action 001 means that what they do the action to is fact number 1 that I want to recall.
The person doing Action 002 means that what they do the action to is fact number 2 that I want to recall.
The person doing Action 003 means that what they do the action to is fact number 3 that I want to recall.
But a further approach to memorising the points in sequence is to use imaginary locations that exist in a sequence. You can imagine each fact's visual object at each location; or maybe you can imagine a few of the essay points at each location. So, rather than a person being the launch point of the sequence of items to recall, instead, a location would be the starting point; and several of the sequential locations following it might also be used to store essay facts. So, as long as you memorise that the law case's recall begins at that first location, your strong knowledge of the locations' sequence should, in theory, help you to recall the prompts of the essay's keywords.
The use of 100 the syllables (eg. SU = Supermarket) recurs in this course. The sketched images earlier in this article of 100 shop icons can, as I mentioned, be a peg sequence list for storing notes against; but I used them as components within more detailed imaginary places: more detailed peg locations (see the Bloke Town article).
