Native Lifeforms[edit]

Ivendo is home to 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.

The Ranage Tree is an essential part of the local ecology, and is abundant in the world's forests. Unfortunately, its pollen contains an alkaloidal toxin inducing symptoms that range from nausea up to and including respiratory failure. When the trees are pollinating during the spring, filter masks are required for the duration of the season.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Naval Base is the home base of the 18th Fleet.

In addition to the City of Ivendo, the other major settlement is Kadala Id.

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.
