\r\nThis is a very watery planet, with large areas of rainforest and a consistently humid atmosphere. The moisture combines with the high temperatures and the very rapid rotation of the planet to cause chaotic winds at most times, and many intense storms. Navigating through the upper atmosphere is always a difficult task. During the worst periods, landing safely may be impossible for even the best of pilots.\r\n
\r\nBecause of the fertile soil, abundant rainfall, and the extra sunlight provided by Ylesia\'s 10 hour days, plantlife is very prolific. The jungles are spectacular; thick with blue-green foliage and a colorful panoply of enormous flowering plants. The plains are carpeted by dense moss and grasses, and the world\'s many swamps boast a startling array of botanical growth.\r\n
\r\nOne fungus from these swampy areas, which thrives on fresh blood, must be continually combated while there. If left unchecked, it will spread over any animal, completely overwhelming their bodily systems in a matter of days.\r\n
\r\nThe only known animal species native to Ylesia is the reek, a herbivorous ungulate that dominates the open plains. Although they have no natural predators, reek are fierce and belligerent. However, it is quite possible to train and domesticate them; their great strength and surprising agility makes them highly valued property on many worlds.\r\n
\r\nReek are also known to frequent Ylesia\'s jungles, and reek attacks are usually blamed for the many deaths which have occurred along their periphery. However, much of the world remains entirely unexplored, and it is widely believed that the planet may have many other indigenous creatures. Whatever the truth, though, visitors should remember that the wilds are dangerous, and take sensible steps for self-protection whenever venturing near them.
