Ah, see I thought you were talking about the actual land itself and not the country. From that standpoint you’re correct, but if we’re talking land America is much darker and much older than England.
The “heart of darkness” beats from three locations, those would be New York City, Washington DC, and Salem- all on the East Coast. The Suns radiate pretty massively, like giant fissures spanning the continent with tendrils slithering to the sea.
The West Coast has generally been light-hearted, though some idiots are trying to create another Sun in LA. One recently fell in San Jose, I helped take apart the Portland one.
I’m not talking about the “normal” darkness that’s commonly called “demons” by ceremonial magicians.
I refer to what is called by some “Caesar’s Sword”, that is the planetary LHC of some of the most dangerous aspects of the planets:
- Venus as the Mother Broken
- Mars as the Ronin
- Jupiter as the Royal Rapist
- Saturn as Black Hole
In other words- the Suns are like engines of wild darkness, DC’s was set up with the birth of the nation, NYC’s was in the early 1900s, and Salem is sometime in the future. 2060s I think.
Making these engines isn’t smart for humans to do, because mere men cannot contain fire.
that was, until relatively recently, dominated by the heavily spiritual native Americans. Do you guys find this legacy still has an influence?
Somewhat, yes, though the gods of most tribes have fled. For instance, the gods of the Navajo have since reclaimed their lands (happened since settlers came, won in mid-1800s), they may have created Jesus Malverde to fuck with people.
Navajo gods are strong, but they really really hate non-Navajos, which is why the Skinwalkers came in force.
Northern england is still fairly magical, but the south seems dead by comparison.
I would disagree.
See, where the east coast is full of monsters (hence why so many corporations are there, the California connection isn’t an accident either), the “Bible Belt” is rampant with “classical” demons intermingling with nature spirits. “Repression makes religion flourish”, as it were, and not all religions worship gods. Naturally, some sorcerers worth their salt managed to bridge those entities there.
Texas is the Gate of Fire, Minnesota the Gate of Earth, New York the Gate of Air, Oregon the Gate of Water.
Anyway, Louisiana is Louisiana and I still keep in contact with some of the swamp spirits I met there.
Florida happens to be a nifty place, it’s like a mini-Louisiana but more complete with waaay more wild gods and dead people.
Do you guys find there's a drastic difference between northern and southern America?
