The fog has rolled in from sea in an outpost located in La Noscea. This particular outpost owes its allegiance to Limsa Lominsa, the city of pirates.
It's hard to codify the "look" of Limsa Lominsa. It's white stone, blue water, and green foliage tucked here and there. Pirates, brigands, scholars and merchants all flock to the port city.
La Noscea, which owes fealty to the Citystate of Limsa Lominsa, is a land of verdant beauty and amazing vistas. Yet even so, the Calamity still looms harshly the landscape.
It's said that Nald'thal, the great Merchant and Keeper of the Dead, watches over the Sultanate of Ul'dah. Ruled by the Royal House of Ul, Nald'thal figures greatly into the lives of the common folk. Ul'dah is an oasis in a wasteland, with most of its lands arid and quite bleak. The Thanalan Desert has claimed more than one unwary adventurer.
Yet, since the Calamity, strange weather patterns have begun to occur in this arid region. Yes, this is a storm in a desert.
