Hmm, so as DM, I suppose I could “ad hoc” it so that the 5th Edition Anauroch Desert is actually a “cooler desert”, an arid dryland area like the Northern Mongolia deserts.
As far as I can tell, only the Sword is HOT osurcebook the other areas of the desert don’t seem to be explicitly described as such. But the line of thought seemed to be “let’s make it how it was before”, which I’m not too sad about either.

It’s trying to be a twofer region and it just doesn’t jibe with itself. The DM’s Guild could go a long way in fleshing-out those other regions, but they’d have to do something better with it than the mess it is in now.
