Chapter 20 - The Deepwell Inn

Mistyvale County--that is to say, the Mistyvale County between Adrilankha and the Shallow Sea, as opposed to one of the other three--[was] one of the handful of counties nestled between Southmoor and Bra-Moor, south of the Collier Hills, and twenty-five or thirty leagues west and north of Aerich's home of Brachington's Moor. (Sethra Lavode, Chapter 76)

Paarfi goes on to zero in on the Deepwell Inn--where the Blue Fox is based--so I believe the distance stated above is in reference to the Deepwell Inn, not the "closest border" of Mistyvale to Southmoor.

[Mistyvale County, where the Blue Fox is] a region some hundred miles northwest of Dzur Mountain. (Sethra Lavode, Preface)

Here again, this passage is referring to the Blue Fox, who is based out of the Deepwell Inn, so I believe Paarfi is giving us the distance in reference to that point, and not to the closest border of Mistyvale.

The requirement that the Deepwell Inn be northwest of both Bra-moor and Dzur Mountain would seem to indicate that Bra-moor was between Dzur Mountain and the Inn, and yet Paarfi describes the Inn as being between the other two. Other passages suggest (but do not directly indicate) that Bra-moor is northeast of Dzur Mountain, which results in the following relationship between these three points:

The Deepwell Inn
The Deepwell Inn

While this may seem overly speculative at this point, it will soon become clear why I located Bra-moor northeast of Dzur Mountain.
