Wildlife Aggression

Low is wildlife that may occasionally lead to deaths but by and large humans and their relatives are the undisputed masters of the world. Real Earth.
Moderate features fauna (and sometimes flora) that is often dangerous and aggressive but not uncontrollably so. Often featuring creatures of abnormal size or tenacity, such as dinosaurs a la Jurassic Park or Pandora. Mankind continues to control nature, but it requires work and fundamental coexistence remains possible.
High is a truly dangerous world,

Okeanos

  • Dominant Race: N/A
  • Theme: The World-Ocean
  • Cardinal Direction: Centre, the Axis Mundi
  • Wildlife Aggression: Low

Okeanos is a vast world, with an equatorial diameter half again as large as the norm and consequently giving it a surface area somewhat more than twice normal. Less than 5% of its surface is dry ground and with the exception of a few small continents, this takes the form of uncontable numbers of islands in roughly a dozen distinct major archipelagos. These are in fact the tops of underwater mountain ranges, as more than a third of Okeanos' vast world-ocean is actually sunken continents rarely more than several hundred meters deep.
