100 Plants for Alien Worlds


This supplement contains various plants that could be found on alien worlds. Some are fairly normal; others are definitely not. Most would be found on habitable worlds but a few can be found in other places. Some plants have uses whilst others are dangerous. They can be used to flesh out an alien ecosystem.

Here are some sample results:

  • Drunktree: Drunktrees are notable for their fruit, which naturally ferments whilst it grows on the plant. Some animals will eat the fruit during this process, leading to them becoming frunk on it, and others will harvest the fruit for its properties. When ripe, the fruit drops off the tree, then continues fermenting until the fruit explodes, scattering seeds at high velocity and potentially injuring anyone in the area.
  • Faux Chocolate: An easy to grow, sickly-looking green moss that has, since its discovery, been exported to many different worlds. The key fact behind this is that the moss has a very similar taste to chocolate, but is much easier and cheaper to grow, and grows a lot faster, and is used as flavouring in many chocolate-flavoured items as opposed to using more expensive chocolate.
  • Firesap: Sap oozes down the sides of this plant at all times, as a deterrent to predators and as a way of getting food. The sap is acidic, and burns the flesh of any creature that tries to eat the plant. Smaller things like insects dissolve in the sap and end up helping to fertilise the plant. Touching the plant with naked flesh results in painful welts, and the sap can start to dissolve the skin if not washed off.
  • Fizzyplant: Fizzyplants are good at extracting carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which is then stored inside the plant's shoots. These can be snapped off and dropped into liquids, where the gas is then released, carbonating the drink in question, which is a common use for the plant.
  • Flame Tree: A tree with a very high oil content in its wood, it makes a useful resource for burning to gain power or heat. Devices designed to make use of flame tree wood can function much better than those that would use coal or similar, though it is a low-tech solution. Flame tree copses can be dangerous if exposed to flame, though, as they can completely go up in flames in a matter of minutes and start a wildfire.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
