I’ve suddenly realized that Borderlands is not a humid continental climate which I’m used to, but at least sub-tropical, probably even tropical. With a very high humidity due to the moisture coming from the ocean, which has nowhere to go but to drop before the mountains. Maybe even with long rain seasons creating torrential downpour and making rivers impassable ?
So, are “forest” hexes in the Borderlands actually jungle ? Are lands behind the Krysivor river jungle ? I understand that everything south of Tiamak river is savannah, slowly becoming desert, although I wonder what happened to all the humidity, or even if my assumptions are actually correct.
So, how correct I am ? And what’s the climate in other parts ? Southern coasts of Ammas Aure are most likely subtropical, or even Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and everything, but what about other parts ?
I would think that Aura climate is the same as that of Rome, but hot and humid is, for example, Krysea ? What about most of Southern Argolle ? How about Northern Argolle ? What about Celdorea ? Or, well, all of them, really ?
I’m not a climate expert, so I’m hoping someone could help me with dispelling my preconceptions. How was it in other peoples’ campaigns ?
I also wonder what it was in the original campaign, and how much thought was given to it…although knowing Alex, I’m pretty sure there must be a spreadsheet with average high/low temperatures, sunny days and amount of precipitation for every month in at least most areas of the original campaign, if not the whole game world. Or several, haha !
