Ley lines are a network of magical corridors which distribute magical energy from the Nexus of Magic throughout the Earth. Some people have tried to trace the ley lines back to the Nexus, but failed.
Around the world there are places where many ley lines converge. These are the so-called secondary nexuses. In some cases there are buildings built on top of them. The secondary nexuses are by many cultures considered special places.
Examples of Secondary Nexuses
- Temple Mount, Jerusalem, Israel
- St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican
- Kaaba, Mecca, Saudi Arabia
- Washington Monument, Washington DC, USA
- Sedona, Arizona, USA
- Stonehenge, United Kingdom
- Forbidden City, Beijing, China
- Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
- Some of the more important shinto shrines in Japan
- Louvre, Paris, France
- Stone circles in Pomorze region in Poland
Power from a Nexus
Every magic-user can channel power from a secondary nexus and, possibly, from the main Nexus of Magic. This energy can strengthen their spells and reduce the number of people needed to cast. Some of the secondary nexuses are popular tourist sites where magic-users go to renew their magical energy and move it back to its strongest amount. However, there is no proof that it works. Some non-magical people believe that direct contact with a secondary nexus can give them magical abilities. However, nobody has been able to achieve that.
Uses and Problems
Humans found some uses for ley lines. One of the most common is using them to enhance the speed of vehicles travelling along them. A magic-user can connect to the energy of a ley line and steer a vehicle to its destination. The most powerful magic-users can use the energy of a secondary nexus to teleport a big group of people.
Secondary Nexuses can cause some problems. Many electronic devices malfunction and compasses go crazy. To this day scientists are looking for a way to counteract that, but there weren't any significant breakthroughs made.
