What draws the supernatural to Orlando?
Orlando was a quickly-settled city that sprung up like weeds in orange groves. The city itself is settled on and amongst ley lines, which means that the supernatural are more likely to linger here. Ley lines are lines that crisscross around the globe, like latitudinal and longitudinal lines, that are dotted with monuments and natural landforms, and carry along with them rivers of supernatural energy. These monuments, and pools of supernatural energy predate any settlers in the area, and have long since been buried in indigenous burial mounds and lost to the sea like grains of sand. These lines skim along the coast and dip into the sea, leaving Orlando to sit, nestled, at the heart of their supernatural energy. Paired with the rich and exciting history of the city, the predisposition for the supernatural has made it a hotbed for all sorts of supernatural activity, which only grows stronger and stronger by the day.
