Loci

From Dark City

This is not an all-inclusive list of the Loci in or around New York. If you are originating a new Locus, or have an idea for one that sensibly belongs here, send a ticket to Staff; we want you to shape this world, too.

The zone of influence that corresponds to Locus Rating has the Open Condition for its corresponding resonance. The locus generates three times its level in Essence on the Hisil side per day that matches the resonance of the locus. Uratha may use a locus to Reach with a +2 bonus, though other circumstantial modifiers may apply.

Spirits of matching resonance: heal Corpus at twice the rate, and gain +2 to attempt to cross the Gauntlet; can use their powers across the Gauntlet in the zone of influence without the Reaching Manifestation; and may conceal themselves in a way that prevents them from taking action but makes them impossible to perceive without supernatural powers that reveal spirits (even to Uratha in the Hisil).
