Capepo

Nestled within the Aucherm Belt is Capepo. This luscious planet is famed for its homegrown crops. The native capsains are a friendly bunch, but the one thing they don't tolerate is slander of their vegetables. The soil of Capepo is unusually fertile; laced with floramancy, any seeds planted grow three times faster than on the average planet.

Geography, Location & Climate

The Aucherm Belt is a large asteroid belt that wraps around Cheem approximately 30 AU away from the star. It contains a number of dwarf planets, one regular planet being Capepo, and trillions of asteroids ranging from microns to kilometres in length. Capepo sits nicely in a string of asteroids and dwarf planets known as the Caese Group.

Capepo has an outstanding set of geographical regions and features. It is home to three continents of varying sizes and climates, and oceans are a consistent temperature across the planet at 31 degrees Celsius.

Barbas

The largest continent by size rather than landmass, Barbas is a tropical continent consisting of thousands upon thousands of tiny islands. A good number of these islands are inhabited and used to grow tropical fruits and vegetables.

Barbas contains a lot of unique cultures and ethnicities; over several thousand years capsains have travelled and settled on new islands, and over time traditions and cultures have slowly altered.

For exo-planetary tourists Barbas is the go-to continent. Capsains advertise it as the best tropical get-away on the planet, thanks to year-round high-temperatures, reliable weather patterns, gorgeous sights and friendly locals.

Avasai

A slightly smaller continent, Avasai shares a landmass with Verhsta. This continent is the most northern of the three, with its northern coastline merging with the North Pole's ice sheets. Its access to colder climates gives it a unique edge, as no other continent ever touches below freezing as frequently as Northern Avasai does.

Central and Southern Avasai consist more of open woodlands, marshes and plains. Many sprawling settlements can be found here, designed to feature roof gardens and stacked farmlands, to optimise efficiency while also maintaining a high percentage of foliage and green spaces.

Verhsta

The entire plane that Verhsta sits on has lifted itself up from the crust. The continent sits on average seventy metres above sea level, with direct access to Avasai through a mountain region, sloped enough for people to walk up them. The increased altitude keeps plant and animal species from venturing beyond the continent, as the climates are too different from the rest of the planet.

History

As have every single planet in the Cheem System, Capepo appeared literally out of nowhere. The planet spawned in the Yonderverse approximately seven hundred years ago, just five years after Maresa. The planet came equipped with its near-current set of people, cultures, species, and everything else that comes alongside a planet, only having evolved in the last seven hundred years.

Five hundred years ago the native capsains first set their sights on space. Developing eco-friendly technology and spacecrafts that could send them flying through the galaxy with zero negative effect on the environment, their first ventures into space wasn't so smooth. Due to the planet's position in the Aucherm Belt and proximity to asteroids, the spacecraft managed to exit the Belt but could not re-enter.

This spacecraft managed to land on the neighbouring planet Auvarha, bonding with the auvarhans over their shared love for the environment. They exchanged knowledge of their technologies, both eco-friendly and

modern, and the auvarhans used their knowledge of space navigation to aid the capsains back to their home planet. This begun and strong relationship between the two planets that has only grown stronger since.

Capepo boasts an enormous collection of native wildlife, found worldwide. The planet has a fairly even balance of animals, with roughly 1 million bird species, thirty-six thousand mammal species, almost five million insect species, among many others.

Capsains value knowledge of nature and the local ecosystems. For practically every town on the globe, there is a small team of researchers dedicated to studying the native wildlife, and the people's impact on the biodiversity and natural order.

Capepo is quite well known for its vast bird life. From over thirty different species of albatross alone, there are millions of seabirds scattered around the coastlines and in the open oceans that flock around tropical islands, consuming copious amounts of tropical fruit in and around the islands of Barbas.

While Capepo's bird life is no joke, its main export, its most famous possessions, the planet's signature everythings, are its crops. You couldn't talk to three capsains in a row without hearing about one of their crop gardens. No matter where you are on the globe, who you talk to, where they came from, they all love their plants. It gives them life, gives them a purpose. Growing crops is a passion, a hobby, a career, whatever they want it to be. Almost all plants on the planet are consumable in some fashion for capsains, and over a million species of plants are cultivated specifically to be eaten.

Another great planet! What an interesting place, it makes me curious about what is going on in the Cheem system. How did such a fertile world with abundant life just appear out of nowhere? I love that the locals are very proud of their veggies. I bet some of those lovely birds are helping pollinate everything. :D

Aw, lovely, Mochi. What a sweet sentiment. And I love your sunset images; they're my favorite things you've illustrated to date. As always, I can't help but listen to a specific album whenever I view your work.

This whole article is great but I adore how they couldn't get back home, landed on a neighbor planet, and bonded with locals over their love of nature. Absolute goals.
