From From Dusk till Jawn

This is not an exhaustive list of Shadow Realm locations, but these are known to the local Uratha population. Also, please refer to the Material locations as well.

This sphere is under active development; your patience is appreciated.

Note: You may visit any of these ICly without an ST except Shoals and Wounds.

This is not an exhaustive list of the loci in or around Philadelphia (to say nothing of the greater Delaware Valley), but it constitutes a representation of Loci that a local pack or Uratha could reasonably occupy and maintain. Loci can and will be added to this list, and player characters are encouraged to claim them, to originate their own, and to use Resonance shaping abilities.

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).
