The landscape of Africa has been dramatically altered. The bulk of the populace, after the appearance of the Nevus, was simply 'gone'. Whether they were obliterated or transferred to another universe is unknown, many prefer the explanation of the latter.
In some places the land has been renewed, in others abandoned settlements remain upon a changed landscape. It is not the Africa the world remembers. Explorers have documented sightings of extinct creatures prowling the plains and the horrific sight titanic monsters dwarfing trees! Gone are the days of the cliché safari tours. It's enter at your own risk!
AFRICA IS A TECHNOLOGICAL FREE ZONE!
All forms of electrical devices go awry the closer one gets to the center of Africa. This means no vehicles, no phones, nothing will work once one travels thirty or so miles from the coast of the mainland. It is there, at it's center, that the deepest, darkest, forest has formed. No one for sure knows what's there. While satellite imaging will reveal Africa's coastal areas nothing will penetrate the interior. Fifty miles to sixty miles in nothing can be detected by technology or magic. No scrying, no remote-viewing or clairvoyance can see what may lie at the heart of Africa. It is a true mystery of our time.
A few teams of explorers have gone into the interior and never returned. Those that made it back to report what we currently know about the 'Heart of Africa' did so at their own peril and barely made it back with their lives.
Those 'altered individuals' that have made it back from seeing the edge of this dark secret landscape have reported that their own 'abilities' were effected, specifically the reduction of 'range'.
No members may launch an expedition without permission from site administration. Exploration of Africa will most likely be a 'Site Event'.
