Jasamma is a verdant world with a climate ranging from tropical to temperate across much of the land ranges. The planet draws visitors from all of the neighbouring systems to its beautiful landscapes.
Although it does not experience large temperature shifts, the planet does undergo sudden changes in localised weather patterns. These generally result in dramatic displays ranging from fast-rolling mist to sky-splitting electrical storms. This is just one of the natural attractions which keeps tourists coming back to the planet time and time again.
Colours in nature on Jasamma tend to be bold and vivid, examples of which would include the indigo sky, crimson-leaved trees, and the waxy, emerald-coloured native grass.
One part of Jasamma — visited by Elm Caden and his father Modim in 3721 ELC — featured a serene freshwater lake surrounded by woods and rolling foothills. The lake, like all freshwater bodies on that particular continent, was devoid of dangerous predators. It did however contain edible fish species. The surrounding undergrowth included a number of edible plants and berries which were indicated for the Cadens by the local network. The woods abounded with rubbery mosses and clouds of tiny, short-lived insects.
The same continent was populated by small numbers of an invertebrate species called Monoham's giant velocipede. This was a long, segmented animal with a milky-white body and vivid pink striations — the warning colours of many of Jasamma's venomous species. It had dozens of pairs of centipede-like legs and a venomous bite. The velocipedes were transplanted deliberately to that continent from another, in an effort to control the population of a pest mite species. The mites had in turn been introduced to eat up the plaques formed during an outbreak of the Blight.
As Elm Caden discovered when he was bitten by a velocipede, Jasamma has a central hospital complex with numerous emergency wards, and is suitably equipped to handle bites from the local fauna.
