    The Moon
    You thought winter was over, didn't you? You thought that it was time for the ice and snow to melt away. For the flowers to bloom and the kids to put away their sleds and break out the rollerblades instead. Well, it turns out that winter isn't quite done with Pandora yet.

    And at a first glance, winter was over. The weather has grown warm, colorful flowers dotting the landscapes, and animals emerge from their winter hideaways. But all over Pandora strange icy phenomenon shows up in short bursts. Nobody knows why it happens or when the next one will strike. It's everything from mild snow flurries to freak blizzards whiting out a town or city entirely. It's not just the weather though. Reports come in of people randomly going cold. Even in the middle of a scorching desert, ice forms on their skin, their lips turn blue, and they just can't stop shivering. In rare and extreme cases, some have frozen to death on a perfectly warm spring day.

    Winter isn't finished with Pandora yet.

    Wintery Phenomena
    There are two types of wintery phenomena that are possible this season. They can range in severity from mild nuisances to absolutely deadly. This phenomena can show up in any part of any region of Pandora.

    Blizzards. Powerful winds throwing snow about, inches quickly accumulating. Blizzards can cover a small or large area, though they are always brief. Blizzards last anywhere from 1-5 hours, and then they are over. The normal weather of the area immediately takes over, even the temperature.

    Freezing Objects and People. Both objects and people will experience random drops in temperature, despite the environment around them remaining appropriate to the current location and season. This can range anywhere from a persistent chill, to ice forming on their hands, sapping the heat from their bodies, to outright freezing them. People can even freeze to death from this phenomenon. It is currently impossible to counter through any means accessible to characters. The effect can last anywhere from minutes to hours to days, and the freezing effect may progress slowly or quickly.

    The Frozen Wastes
    A third phenomenon has been witnessed, though only in the Dread Wastes. A fair distance east of The Scorch lies a ruined city with architecture that wouldn't be out of place in Centria. People recall the city being forever barren, overgrown with foliage, great beasts wandering its ruins. However, recent travelers return with stories that the area has frozen over. Blizzards are frequent, and when they settle, there is only a white graveyard left behind, monsters roaming, searching for fresh meat. Some have glimpsed people here as well, fiercely territorial of their home. The area has not thawed and the permanent freeze seems to be growing steadily larger with each passing day.

    The Frozen Wastes are part of a special plot being run this season! Anybody is free to run their own adventures in the area, but if you'd like to participate in the plot, check it out here!
