Note that some content may still need to be updated.

Temperate climates are those that are neither extremely hot nor extremely cold year-round. Bodies of water and rivers on the surface will freeze during winter, although the exact length of time will vary. When you embark, the water may start out frozen and then thaw during the spring, before refreezing during the next winter. Also, the summer months do not get hot enough to cause surface pools of water to evaporate, unlike the hot climate. Due to the balance of this temperature, embarking in an area with this type of climate may be well-suited for newer players.
