Drekhjarta boasts an extremely vibrant and diverse ecosystem. The flora and fauna listed below are by no means the only ones that can be found on our continent. They are simply listed as a guideline and example of what you can find on your adventures. You are welcome to use any vegetation and wildlife that can be found in real life, we only ask that you consider your location when writing - for example, a polar bear wouldn’t be found in the middle of the desert!
