On Dragon’s Mark, a weather applet runs on every page making it easy for us to know what the current conditions are. Some may miss the days when weather in Rhy’Din was perceptional and ever-changing but let’s face it, this creates a more cohesive shared IC illusion amongst the community.
Its a small thing, but it is fun to play off of and can create an immediate playable for every player entering DM‘s public rooms. To state the obvious, these tiny things make the difference between feeling included or feeling left out. Having the weather be a shared phenomena allows for every player to feel included and not confused.
