Tincalunas (Huanghuadian)
System Information
X:Y Coordinates 42.347 : -432.173[e]

The Tincalunas system is the location of at least one habitable world and as of 3145, is located in the Fronc Reaches.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Tincalunas system is located in the Periphery near the Herotitus and Untran systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Tincalunas system was colonized by the Capellan Confederation during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War and was a member of the Sian Commonality; when colonized, the system was named Huanghuadian.[3][4][5] Huanghuadian vanished from maps during the Second Succession War, indicating that the system had been abandoned or depopulated.[6][7]

The planet was abandoned after its moon was shattered by the tidal forces from a nearby gas giant, causing constant volcanism on the surface.[8]

Apocryphal Content Ends

The planet was recolonized by the Fronc Reaches during the Dark Age.[9]

Planetary History[edit]

Dark Age[edit]

The world of Huanghuadian was resettled by the Fronc Reaches as part of a colonization programme that began in 3099 following a boom in the economy of the Reaches, as a result of domestic and foreign policy changes by President Elaine Hadley that saw rapid growth in the domestic military-industrial sectors of the economy. The world was renamed Tincalunas, by 3120, Tincalunas and two nearby worlds were colonized as part of the same programme. Appian and Mandalas, had reached a point where they were self-sustaining agriculturally and by 3135, each was contributing to the overall gross domestic product of the Reaches through agricultural surpluses, mining, and trade. The settlers on Tincalunas originated from a mix of independent and Capellan Confederation worlds.[9]


It was confirmed by the map author, Øystein Tvedten, that the system name "Mollako" shown on maps within Handbook: House Liao is in error, and the correct name for the planet located on the maps of the Star League era is "Huanghuadian", as seen on p. 121 of Handbook: Major Periphery States.

Mollako is a mistake, it should be gone from the map. The proper name of the world is Huanghuadian and it was abandoned/depopulated during the 1st Succession War.

It was also confirmed that Huanghuadian was resettled as the world of Tincalunas by the Capellan Confederation.

Huanghuadian from founding to removal (1st Succession War casualty). Then repopulated by House Liao in the post-Jihad era sometime and renamed Tincalunas.
