You're struggling through, your breath flashing quick and hard, in and out of your nose, your nostrils flaring from the intensity. In and out goes your breath - and so too - in and out goes the fog. Every step you take is an agony, the mass of bloody scores on your calf causing you pain with every step, and for what? Your feet seem to take you no where, having no purpose. And then the noises come. On the very edge of hearing, at the point where imagination and reality mingle, footsteps are heard. Scamperings, clatterings, clicks. Your throat closes up, you rush forward - but to where?
This question has to do with the idea of how would someone defend themselves in a supernatural fog. The fog in question is more than just a gathering of water droplets, but a malevolent force, instilling in whoever enters it a sense of fear. Furthermore, dangerous creatures live inside of it, such as oversized spiders, something that appears to be a bear crossed with a chimpanzee, and near all other assorted monsters. In the face of these dangers, either by yourself or in the company of others, what would be the best survival tactics? Any gear and preparation is allowed, as long as it fits within the proper frame (a mix of renaissance and industrialised 1900s).
