Geography of Ith'Meireun
Ith'Meireun is a cold, relatively desolate world. Most of its rich soil has been covered over in glaciers, permafrost or deep, frequent snows. The world was once a lush, green, living world teeming with all variety of living things, but is now a dying remnant of that time. Scholars estimate that the current population is less than ten percent of what it once was. Ith'Meireun is experiencing an ice age that will last forever. It is not uncommon to find polar glaciers as far south as the 30th parallel especially during winter or perigee from Pelor.
Maximum surface temperature has been recorded as high as 95 degrees Fahrenheit in the tropical regions during the Summer. Average Summer temperature for these areas is in the low to mid 80s. High amounts of carbon dioxide in Ith'Meireun's atmosphere as a result of relatively little land vegetation accounts for some of the trapped warmth.
Further from the equator, the temperature decreases rapidly and is almost completely unlivable beyond the 60th parallel on the surface
Life on Ith'Meireun has stabilized somewhat, but is still declining slowly, as survival is very difficult, Harsh conditions in most of the higher latitudes have resulted in the fall of nations, with new ones rising to take their place but only as shadows of what was.
It was believed that the planet itself was one massive egg holding the unborn dragon which while not hatched, was aware of the world and allowed life to exist on its surface by sharing its life essence. This belief is still held by druids, although it is seldom spoken of outside druidic circles.
