Weather Conditions

Temperatures vary greatly from continent to continent on Ramath-lehi. Because of its position in relation to its sun, the climate on Ramath-lehi is significantly colder than that of Earth. However, most of its inhabitants are equipped with insulating fur of some manner, while those more susceptible to cold tend to populate the warmer equator regions.
