Fog-bound province background generator for Evey L.

Evey Lockhart created a bleak and weird setting while answering the classic set of 20 questions from Jeff Rients. There is something that I like in how raw her setting is and I created a background generator for it, just in case that someone want to use it to flailsnail. 
Evey's original post:
