Daily Weather Tables for Hari Ragat

TQP_sunset_0003

Because weather can matter a lot in travel, hunting and combat, the Hari Ragat GM will often need to know exactly what the weather is like, rather than just relying on a rough season guide. Roll 1d6 as appropriate:

Dry Season

1 Thunderstorm
2 Hot and humid, thunderstorm expected
3 Warm and sunny
4 Warm and sunny
5 Warm and sunny
6 Sunny with cool winds

Wet Season

1 Typhoon
2 Day-long heavy rains (nonstop)
3 Periods of heavy rain
4 It just rained
5 Hot and muggy
6 Warm and sunny

Typhoon Season

1 Supertyphoon
2 Typhoon
3 Heavy rains
4 It just rained
5 Hot and muggy
6 Warm and sunny

As there are no roads in the Janggalan Isles, overland travel is simply impossible during heavy rains and typhoons, and most vessels at sea will seek shelter when the weather turns violent.

For combat, heavy rain (including typhoons) severely obstructs vision and renders bows useless until they dry. This is one big reason why the islanders prefer spears. Rain can cause rivers to swell and flood, and renders the ground very treacherous to footing. Characters who do not know the Secret of the Egret’s Dance will likely slip and fall on rolling a complication; this is even more likely if the character is wearing armor.
