I use the DM Genie to generate weather and I could use some help with it. If anyone is familiar with it what would I set the Climate, Terrain, and Weather adjustment at. From what I have read the Cinderlands is not really a desert, its more a temperate place but with lots of Volcanic activity and little rain fall making it very hot when the sun is up but freezing at night? So how hot does it get in Summer midday and at night? Same question with it being winter? I just need some base line to help me out. Same with the wind. That's all I can think of right now Thanks for the info.
If your read the Cinderlands primer in "A History of Ashes" it should put you on the right track. I really cant think of any place on earth that comes close to how I imagine the place. However, in devloping the area for my campaign I have used the badlands of of South Dakota as inspiration.
Which is a nice choice, given the 20 - 30 degree temp differential between the badlands and the black hills.
