Whether the genesai are products of the climate of their island home or whether the climate of Chamorath is the product of its genesai inhabitants is unknown. What is known is that the climate of this island, which lies to the northwest of Kalamora, is very peculiar and not at all indicative of its geographical location. Chamorath is among the northernmost land masses on Kitara, which should result in a very cold climate generally, yet the temperature on Chamorath can be as hot as anywhere else in Kitara. Even in the dead of winter, Chamorath can be as hot as a summer day on the equator.
This is not to say that it never gets cold on Chamorath. In fact, a sweltering summer day can be followed by snow and ice the next. Just as the island is home to the hottest of temperatures on Kitara, so too is it home to the coldest. These wildly fluctuating temperatures also lead to wildly fluctuating whether conditions. A monsoon-like morning can be followed by snow in the afternoon and dry heat-lightning storms in the evening (though there’s usually a little more time between changes than this).
Many sages suspect that the seemingly random elements of the weather on Chamorath have resulted in the elemental nature of the genesai who call the island home. Yet many others believe that the elemental nature of the genesai is so ingrained in them that it literally oozes from them and has, over the centuries, resulted in the peculiar climate of their island home. The answer to the riddle may never be known, but what is known is that if one is to travel to Chamorath, he or she had best pack for all kinds of weather. Or as the genesai say, if you do not like the weather on Chamorath, wait fifteen minutes.
