Game and Story Use

  • While it sometimes stretch believability a bit, this trope can prove very helpful in a campaign where the PCs are going to visit a lot of different planets. Rather than having to worry about carefully balanced ecosystems and details like axial tilt and orbital period, you just say "the whole planet is one big grassland, complete with ferocious space lions and cute little space monkeys". You just saved yourself a lot of work.
