Description:

Hunan has been described as the last place in the Inner Sphere you would want to go, let alone live. The planet's atmosphere is tainted by tons of sulfur vapor produced by hundreds of volcanoes located on the main continent in the equatorial zone of the planet. "Hell," as it has been named, is completely devoid of life.

The population of the planet lives in Kamala, the only continent that can support life. And that's not saying much. Even here the landscape is a frozen lava flow, reddish-brown in color, with half-melted purple hillsides. Pale yellow vapors twist from sulfurous, steam-belching geysers, rising through the thick brown soup.

Outside the capital of Hunan City are the Hellfire Mountains, which are made up of volcanoes and hot springs that make the use of infrared scans nearly impossible. The sulfur vapors hamper radar and magscans, making most sensors useless.

The planet was colonized only for the massive deposits of ore and metals found on all five of the planet's continents. Roc, Zeka, and Bandar are island continents. It was here that the planet's native life was found. "Fire lizards," as they were called, could spit a caustic liquid with deadly accuracy up to 10 meters, causing intense burns. Eventually the lizard population was brought under control and a few domed cities were built so that humans could mine the land.
