A pair of wide, marshy peninsulas jut into the Atlantic Ocean far to the south below Barrington. Vapor Sound, aptly named, is almost always draped in a thick layer of fog; this area experiences more days of hazy weather than anywhere else in the province. The peninsulas themselves are flat, consisting primarily of marshland and bogs with sparse tree growth. The trees are low and gnarled, arranged in thickets; tangled and sometimes thorny bushes comprise the underbrush of the boglands. Vapor Sound is surrounded by water on three sides.
The coastland here is foreboding and beautiful, with thin strips of sandy beach below headlands and rocky outcroppings. Innumerable small coves and inlets decorate the coves, providing excellent catches of fish, lobster, and crabs. Though Cape Sable Island lurks just off the coast, separated from the mainland by a narrow ocean strait -- though one can rarely see its shores for the haze.
The eastern peninsula of Vapor Sound extends far past the western, wrapping around Cape Sable Island and tempering the fierce ocean currents that would otherwise flow through the strait. This promontory is especially rocky, with little beach below the sharp headland. This area competes with the southerly tip of Cape Sable Island for the southmost point of Nova Scotia. Its endpoint is especially haunting: the wide, gray-green Atlantic Ocean stretches before an outcropping of rock, indistinguishable from skies turned smoky gray with fog or cloud.
This is one of the human designs that is still left standing, a large gazebo. Like Blackmoor, it is made out of stone, though Angel Terrace is made from white stone rather than black like the castle. It would have been beautiful back when the humans were around, but after such a long period of time, it has long since become overgrown. Moss and vines cover the top and various other areas or the once white gazebo. The haze from Mistral Woods tends to drift over to Angel Terrace, leaving the ground around it misty, though it isn't often.
Cape Sable Island is the largest island in the area, located southwest of Barrington and west of Blanche. The island is extremely prone to bad weather; beyond the usual Atlantic Coast storms, a low-lying fog permeates the island almost year-round. A rather sturdy causeway provides foot transportation to the island. During periods of high sea elevation, the causeway is impassable.
The island was the birthplace of the Cape Islander fishing boat, a small boat found all over the Atlantic, and there are many factories which have finished and half-finished boats left to stand inside. The exterior of the island is surrounded by a single, lonely road which provides transportation between the many coastal communities of the island, whereas the interior of the island is generally untamed wilderness.
