The kingdom's ruler, being a god as well, has gathered followers in the form of a religion. It is the primary religion in his nation, and he makes use of his devotees by having them help him complete his task; Making storms. This Cloudforge is one of many within the kingdom of storms. It is perched on a dam so that it has access the the immense amount of water it takes to make the clouds. Not all the Cloudforges have a reserve like this one though, so it is somewhat of a backup Cloudforge in case things go wrong with the water supply of the others. The monks who run the Cloudforge live in the monastery below, and the temples on the rim each hold a piece of their God-King's body for them to pray to (being immortal he just regrows body parts). The Cloudforges are a blessing to the earth, without them there would be no rain or clouds for anyone. So when tragedy befalls the King of Storms himself, it is a loss for the entire planet.
