Planetary Info[edit]

Hunan's vast amounts of metal ores and minerals made it an attractive prospect for mining and industrial concerns. In every other way, Hunan is a terrible world. Nicknamed "Hell" by the population and visitors alike, Hunan's atmosphere is tainted by the huge amounts of sulfur that pour from the volcanoes all over the planet. The environment is so hostile that the planet was thought to be totally lifeless. Early settlers were disabused of this notion when they encountered the fire lizards on Hunan's three island continents. These lizards could accurately spray caustic venom at targets up to ten meters away. Eventually the lizard population was reduced and humans built domed cities to mine the metals found in the crust.[1]

Due to its hostile environment Hunan hasn't seen much conflict. The world's frequent lava flows and steam geysers render infrared sensors useless. Compounding the problem are the high concentrations of iron particulates in the sulfur vapors that interfere with magnetic scanners and radar systems.[1]

In response to the recent raids and assaults on worlds within the Word of Blake Protectorate, the Blakists launch raiding parties against various worlds around the Protectorate border in early September 3076. Making use of weapons of mass destruction to augment the damage inflicting, the raiding parties - few of which were larger than a single Level III struck at the worlds of Algorab, Alnasi, Amity, Bordon, Connaught, Hunan, Kessel, New Hessen, New Kyoto, Ronel, St. Andre, Styk, Tsitsang and Wei. Of the worlds hit, the Capellan Confederation took the brunt of the fighting.[21][22]
