As the two adventurers talk, they make their way over the stony
ground. Here and there are a few stands of trees. They have a
reasonably good vantage point, and behind them can see New Camelot in
the distance, though the air is oddly hazy. For the first time it
seems strange to them that this high hill wasn't noticeable as they
approached the forest in pursuit of Louissa.

In front of the two, however, is the oddest sight of all. As they
approach, the fog bank looms larger and larger, until they are
standing right in front of it, and it looms high into the sky. The
feeling as they get closer is almost electric, like a buzzing. Vesper
can definitely sense a major dimensional anomaly of some kind, though
while the fog bank is substantial, it still appears to be a mist, and
not a solid feature.

Somewhere within the fog bank, though it sounds miles away, can be
heard gunfire and screams.
