Scou is a just budding city that is nestled within a rich valley. It is surrounded almost on all sides by mountains with a narrow pass to the outside world. Despite itís isolation, Scou has grown substantially since established. Lately, however, contact with the rest of the world has abruptly stopped. No one really knows why this has happened or what is going on. Merchants that have left Scou to deliver goods have always come back within a day or less. They speak of a thick fog that never lets up and it always causes them to give up and head back to Scou. Now the governor is looking for brave individuals to travel into the fog and find out what has happened to the rest of the world.
