Weather happens in Kenshi. There are types of weather and they affect characters. Skeletons are never affected by weather.
Acid Rain Edit
Acid Rain happens when it rains Acid. It appears to be raining Acid in Vain, but characters are unaffected by this. As well as wearing clothing which protects from Acid Rain, characters can build tents to protect from it. Entering any other building will also protect characters from Acid Rain.
Acid Rain protection does nothing to protect from swimming in Acid in Vain or the Deadlands. When traveling through the Deadlands, characters which need Acid Rain protection will also need shoes, because the ground itself is acidic.
When unprotected characters encounter Acid Rain, every body part will slowly experience blunt Damage.
Burning is a weather which exists in The Eye.
Characters who are travelling through the area will see a large, fast moving ray of intense sunshine. The beam will move very fast for a few seconds before disappearing. Any characters caught in the ray without protection will experience brutal burns on all parts of their bodies. Blunt damage only. If a character is without protection and in the ray for the entire duration they may be killed.
Duststorms happen in desert regions and affect a character's accuracy when attacking. If characters do not have duststorm protection, they will hold an arm up to cover their eyes. This animation does not negate the effect which the duststorm causes.
When a character is unprotected from Duststorms, they will have their Melee Attack and probably other skills reduced by 10.
