Mists of Salamira
he Hand of the Creator has always been prone to sudden fogs where one could easily lose their way, but about a year ago some pale, thick, grey-green smog appeared almost all around the peninsula, a phenomenon never seen before. This fog, aptly named the True Mist, did not only limit vision though. It brought with it something sinister, something like a curse that transformed the land it touched.
Almost as if the things of Salamiran legends wanted to show themselves somehow and rode the fog to find a way back into this world – various undead appeared seemingly without reason; animals grew, transformed and went berserk; strange magical phenomena could be seen all around… It disappeared from most places within between a few days and a month, the soonest around churches and places of arcane significance, often leaving piles of bodies and unknown monstrosities behind. This has become known as the First Falling of the Mist. There have been two more Fallings since the first, albeit the area those affected was far smaller and much more scattered around the nation.
