Tales of Errenzuim: The Misty Shoals
The Valley of Mists
The Valley of Mists resides several thousand feet bellow Trondheim. Hundreds of years ago, the land was actually quite clear, and visible. Only within the last three centuries has the mist permeated the land. The creatures that reside in the Vallye of Mists are quite predatory, and stealthy in nature. Many of the population of Trondheim steer clear of the Valley, as generally their first visit into this once beautiful land could be their last.
The fog within the Valley has recently turned from merely a dense cover, into some sort of plague. Many researchers, and wizend sorcerers have uncovered that this new variation of mist is magical in nature. The mist does enhance all who inhale, and bask within it, but overexposure leads to severe schiztophrenia, as well as Dementia, and mental degeneration. The physical effects of overexposure are more monstrous, as the “victim” begins to transform into a hideous creature.
The Valley of Mists extends for several miles beyond the High city of Trondheim, reaching as far as the Adamite Mountains. Rumors exist that say the source of the mist exists even far beyond the other side of the mountains. None have traveled farther than the mountains before.
