The Light Empyrean
The White Mist
Whatever the weather, Aldar is pervaded by a light mist. The Mist makes the air in the city cool, even on sunny days, but it does not deposit moisture on anything it touches, leading to the belief that it is magical in nature. Scholars have studied the Mist for many years, but its source or function have never been unambiguously identified. This has not stopped some in the city taking advantage of its most obvious feature; that it obscures vision at a distance. The thickness of the Mist varies in both time and place, often merely adding a white haze to the surroundings, but at times shrouding anything more than a few yards in front of you in pure white. Many have come to the seemingly rational conclusion that it is connected to the Fountain of Dreams, Aldar’s other unique feature.
