Hey Gauntleteers, I’m back crowdsourcing the miscellany for Codex – Storm. This miscellany is called “Three Dozen Unnatural Weather Phenomena.” Submissions need to be a single sentence, or 2-3 short sentences. By submitting here, you’re agreeing to let us use it (you’ll get a credit on the issue). We’re looking for evocative things; the purpose of the miscellany is to inspire the reader.
We need three pieces of information for each entry: 1) A name or location of some weird weather, 2) what’s so unusual about it, and 3) a rumored cause or necessary precaution.
Here are some examples:
“The rain here is alive, or close to it. Bottle some, bring it inside, and it’ll glow a soft greenish blue bright enough to illuminate a room for up to a week before dimming. Locals say it reflects the mood of the sky; if a bottle goes out early or yellows, stay indoors.”
“They say the fog that hangs over the Garnet Coast was a witch’s dying curse or a trickster god’s prank, but one thing is certain: trying to work magic inside its reach is like trying to weave smoke.”
“The fierce storms of Taranis-4 make exploration nigh impossible, but researchers tracking its largest storm system have noticed a pattern emerge over years: its rise and fall appears to mimic Morse Code.”
