i have a headcanon that there's this spot in the Zones, somewhere between zones 4 and 5, where nothing works. Radios go dead, compasses don't work right, cars and motorbikes break down, kind of like the bermuda triangle. There's some debate about whether or not it exists, some people think it's just a tale told to younger zone rats to keep them from wandering off. Others claim to have lost people to it, others still claim to have survived it.
I love this! There are all these different theories as to why nothing works there. Some say it has something to do with magnets buried deep in the earth from the Analog Wars.
People think that BLI planted some huge machine underground in that area that causes everything to stop working. They set it up as kind of a trap for killjoys and that’s why people get lost there. In actuality, BLI doesn’t go anywhere near this spot. They don’t know what causes it and they’re terrified of it.
Some think that this is where the Phoenix Witch lives.
Others believe that this area is where Destroya will someday appear.
