Description (Astrography & Planetology)
The planet has a normal climate and a thin oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere. Ivendo supports a great variety of plant life, most notable of which is the Ranage Tree, a vast growth whose wide canopy provides homes for many varieties of wildlife. Ranage wood is particularly prized for its beauty, and the unworked wood as well as furniture carved from it are staple exports of Ivendo. Unfortunately, the tree's pollen, which is released in the spring, is toxic to many humans, inducing symptoms that range from nausea up to and including respiratory failure.
Ivendo contains a population of approximately 90,000 Chirpers, all of which are confined to small reservations. Occasional attempts by Chirpers to stray off these reservations have been harshly dealt with by the local human population. The Chirpers have been in a steady decline for several years, though the apparent cause is unknown.
Ivendo is home to the Ranage Tree. The Ranage is an essential part of the local ecology, and is abundant in the world's forests. Unfortunately, its pollen contains an alkaloidal toxin that is deadly to humans, and when the trees are pollinating during the spring, filter masks are required for the duration of the "bitchin' ragweed" season. The Ranage is cut down by the locals for the manufacture of exquisite furniture and cabinetry that is a major export of the world.
