Political Affiliation[edit]

  • 2890 - Independent world named as Don't and associated with Contrilla[1]
  • 3005 - Independent world
  • 3022 - Independent world renamed as Mantharaka

Planetary History[edit]

Mantharaka is only marginally habitable, featuring barren highlands and cold, arid lowlands, but the vast and easily-accessible deposits of titanium-bearing oreas have made it a viable mining colony regardless.

By 2890 the world was marked as the capital world of its association with Contrilla, though no name is given to it.[1]

By 3022 the world's name had changed to Mantharaka.[2]

Canonicity[edit]

Featured only in the apocryphal BattleTech video game, the Mantharaka system was apocryphal until it was published as "Don't" in House Arano (The Aurigan Coalition)[1].
