Promptober Day 15: Spooky

A thick mysterious fog coats the land and conceals new, terrible, vicious apex predators. Where did it come from?

Haunted houses are great for jump scares, but have you ever seen fog rolling down the river at dusk?

Many years ago when I was still fishing on a regular basis, I stood out on a sand bar and watched as the fog came rolling right down the river at me. It was a bit unsettling at the time. I’ve since seen it from above on a bridge, on the river bank, and from farther away. It’s not as unsettling now, but I remembered thinking then how thick and mysterious it looked.

The pitch: A thick and mysterious fog covers the well known lands of a fantasy world. Rather than being a strange weather event, it lingers for days, even weeks and limits visibility to 30′ or less even during the day. People have forgotten what the sun looks like except from the highest towers. To make matters worse, new and terrible predators hunt in the fog, ravaging village and countryside alike.

A call for adventurers go out to find the origin of the mysterious fog and put a stop to it. Or find a safe trail to lead the village people out of the fog assuming one can be found at all. A sandbox/hexcrawl adventure series.
