The region gets its name from the heavy fog that covers the land. The fog is reportedly so thick that it reduces sight down to 2 feet. No one knows exactly how large the area is, or why the fog does not melt away with the sun. Communities that live close to the mist have claimed that creatures of madness inhabit the fog, preventing anyone from penitrating its curtain. Those that try either never return or come back with hardly any mind left.
