System Information
X:Y Coordinates 460.634 : -264.984[e]

The Hoonaar system was the location of at least one habitable world or construct, and as at 3145 was located in the June Operational Area of the Periphery March within the Federated Suns.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Hoonaar system is located near the Baranda and Gronholt systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Hoonaar system was colonized or annexed by the United Hindu Collective at some point prior to or during the Age of War.[4]

Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion Era[edit]

Following the discovery of rich gem and mineral deposits on Hoonar by an expedition formed from representatives of both Hoonar and the neighboring world of Gronholt, relations between the two worlds broke down sharply. With Duke Vellant Deedman, the planetary ruler of Hoonar, determined not to share the proceeds arising from the potential exploitation of these resources, Gronholt attacked Hoonar, with mercenary forces in the employ of Baroness Tsanma of Gronholt conquering and occupying the southern continent of Hoonar.[33]

Duke Deedman relied on the planetary militia for defense against the mercenaries hired by Baroness Jennifer Tsanma,[33] and the militia successfully fought a defensive campaign, holding the northern continent. Hoonarian partisans on the southern continent continued to fight an insurgency against the Gronholt forces in 3055; while poorly equipped, the partisans caused a number of problems for the invaders. Deedman himself proved a competent strategist while fighting this defensive war, a contrast to the highly controlling nature of Baroness Tsanma when commanding her forces in the campaign on Hoonar.[34]

Hoonaar Bank Heist[edit]

In 3071, bandit MechWarrior Ringo Peterson used his upgraded UrbanMech to perpetrate the Hoonaar Bank Heist.[35]

The Jihad[edit]

One of the worlds to secede from the Federated Suns and join the Malagrotta Cooperative, Hoonaar found itself in the uncomfortable position of being subject to rule by the Death's Consorts pirate band in October 3075 after the death of Voorzitter Marion Willshire and Lady Paula Trevaline and the rise to power of Gary Tiqualme. A contingent of the Consorts arrived on Hoonar in November to reaffirm the Consort's rule over the world, destroying the local militia battalion and air wing in the process.[36]

Geography[edit]

Hoonar is a dry, water-poor world of no particular note. A small world with just two major continents, the main distinguishing feature of Hoonar is the crystal-clear Great Divide River which separates the northern and southern continents.[33]

Planetary Locations[edit]

  • Homefront City: planetary capital city.[33]
