Lake of Mists and Veils
The people of Brevoy refer to the Lake of Mists and Veils simply as "The Lake". The Lake defines the northern border of the land while dominating Brevoy's seasons and weather. In the winter, the fiercest storms howl down from the foggy waters, driven between the mountain peaks to pour freezing rain, sharp hail, and deep snow drifts into Issia. The lake gets its name from the tendency to warm just enough in the peak months of summer so that when the first chill of winter sets in, the water "steams" with heavy layers of mist at night, burning off each morning.
