Man, Its Windy Today
I mean super windy, things are blowing around, the trees are a' dancin'. Which leads me to think, why does weather seem to play a back seat in rolepalying? Despite the hordes of weather tables or the climate sections of campaign guides, weather often only appears when it is dramatically important. It is as if our adventurers wander through days of eternal sunshine and summer, only to be tipped off that bad things are coming when the clouds roll in. I propose we all work weather into our next game. If you are a GM, make some reference to today's forecast, or at least give them something besides a warm cheery day. If you are a player, bring up the weather, ask the GM if it looks like rain, comment on fine a day it is, or just keep pestering your GM by making weather sense rolls.
