The mistmen of Phyrgilus are a race older than humanity, dwellers in the lands of Antediluvia from before recorded time.  They dwell in their namesake city, Phyrgilus, which is located in the land of Xotath, deep in a valley of the jungle called The Drape, which is at the foothills of the mountains named The Bridge of Ixtomelja.  Accessing the city is difficult, since it is guarded well, and surrounded by the mountainous jungle, inhabited by strange peoples (although much less strange than the mistmen).  They have no existing trade with the outside world, and seem to exist wholly in isolation.  Most of those who have journeyed to the city have never been seen again - only those who the mistmen have allowed to leave are ever successful at escaping.  The entire city of Phyrgilus is covered in a thick fog, and the valley it resides in seems to lie under constant low cloud cover, filling the entire valley's jungle canopy.  They worship the demon-god Yuggog.

Mistmen have a perpetual aura of mist that surrounds them which acts as a mist-like emanation of obscurity spell, which is centered on the mistman at all times.  They may also assume gaseous form, as the potion, up to three times per day.  The aura of mist is active even while they are in gaseous form.  In physical form, they typically attack with weapons, although many mistmen have been known to use sorcery.
