Josh addresses that, I think in the third part of the PoE stream (beginning of january, twitch/youtube)

 

In one of the streams Josh said that Archipelago was situated in several climatic zones. So Deadfire is wider than we thought.

 

Hey, thank you, guys.

 

Any chance to see that thing on youtube or something similar? Tried to find it but with no luck.

Maybe the Deadfire Archipelago is warm because of geological reasons (hot streams, vulcanos, underwater geysirs and so on)?

 

Like Europe has the Gulf Stream...

Hey, maybe the axial tilt of the planet is different which shifts the hot/cold aspects around some? Also, for the real world example, think of the general heat and humidity in the southern tip of Argentina and such in South America, even with Antarctica being a fairly short distance away.

 

Plus, the description does describe volcanic islands, so consider how much geothermal heat might be affecting the area?

Even if currents or volcanic activity keep it warm, the tropical vegetation still doesn't quite fit, at least at first glance, and from what I know of the world map (which is not much).

My original thought was that it was south of the Eastern Reach, running roughly West-East parallel to whatever the coast of The White that Wends looks like. But the Fig campaign says it's located even further east from the Reach, so now I'm thinking it may run mainly North-South? It could possibly be a long enough island chain to be near both the equator AND the southern edges.

Distance from the equator has a huge effect on environment, but it's not everything.  For instance, the first picture is actually 500 miles closer to the equator than the second picture.

The deserts aren't a problem since they're more geography than distance to the equator.  So, the difference is plausible if not the likeliest occurrence.  

 

 

The problem I have is this more geohistorical.  How were a hunter-gatherer culture able to keep their ways of life so long when they were in direct contact with farming societies with advanced tools over millennia?  The glanfathans should at least be herders.  I think Obsidian would keep the whole thing more plausible if they had a world or region map; at least to keep it from getting mixed up in their own heads.
