As of January 10, 2017, a polar vortex has caused the temperatures to plunge to dangerously low levels. Due to the bitter cold, large game has begun dying of exposure, littering the wilderness with frozen carcasses. Meat is plentiful... but conditions aren't otherwise easy for the wolves! Many have vanished to find a more habitable environment. Those that have decided to stay put and tough it out are in for a frigid and indefinite wait. The young, the old and the weak might be be particularly susceptible to the glacial conditions.

But wait! There's more!

January 13: THUNDERSNOW! An unusual weather phenomenon moves into the area in the afternoon. It's like a thunderstorm in every way except that the primary precipitation is snow rather than rain. About 1' will accumulate, creating the perfect base layer for...
January 20: ICE STORM! Yet another squall blows into the Teekon Wilds in the early morning. Although there's no thunder or lightning, there's freezing rain instead of snow. Every surface becomes coated, creating dangerously slippery conditions that will last for days, until...
January 27: BLIZZARD! A heavy snowfall hits the area overnight and the wilderness wakes up to over 5' of snow in some places!

Thank you to Kuro for proposing this idea and compiling the research! Please feel free to spot these "invasive" species during the duration of the BWP.

Quote:I have compiled a list of species together that would be able to survive the BWP, as well as likely navigate through the land itself. They are all species found in North America to this very day, too, so you won't see a camel or anything on this list. I would like to propose that these specific species be found within the Teekon Wilds throughout the duration of the BWP. They might linger a short while after it has ended, and there would definitely be a straggler or two even after that, but they would all eventually return whence they'd originated—or, if it would be allowed, small populations of these species could still be found within the northernmost regions of the Teekon Wilds. The Snowforest Taiga and northern reaches of the Sequoia Coast would be able to support these small populations even after the BWP has ended, assuming they truly are as I have always imagined them to be.

The temps have started to rise. By Feb. 1, the weather will return to your regularly scheduled winter conditions. Thanks for playing!
