Outside of Steiner space and beyond the young realm known as the Rim Collection, lies a unique relic of a bygone era. During the height of the Star League, an exploration ship searching for likely mining sites discovered in the Periphery a beautiful planet teeming with life. The blue skies and sweet air of this new world seemed a sure sign that the planet offered ideal conditions for colonists and tourists alike. As the explorers quickly learned, the planet was home to thousands of species of unique animals, nearly all predators. Scientists still debate the whys and wherefores of such an anomalous situation, but accept that the smaller predators simply serve as prey for the larger predators. Creatures so dangerous and powerful that they might overwhelm a BattleMech occupy the top of the food chain.

Though poor in gems and metals, the planet proved to be a biological gold mine for its discoverers. The exploration team quickly hatched a plan to market the new world as a big-game hunter's dream come true. Attempts to establish a surface settlement failed completely, so investors funded the construction of an orbital space station. DropShips would bring wealthy thrill seekers to the station, where they would meet their guides with the latest in weaponry and survival gear. The richest hunters could even go to the surface piloting 'Mechs. The beasts they caught live would become the main attractions of zoos throughout they Inner Sphere, though most targets ended up stuffed and mounted in dusty trophy rooms.

The so-called Hunter's Paradise prospered for several decades. When trouble started brewing in the Periphery, however, business slacked off. And, as with so many other ventures, the collapse of the Star League spelled the doom of this high-priced resort. Eventually the space station was abandoned and forgotten.

When Collection scouts rediscovered the world and its abandoned jump station, President Moroney immediately poured what resources he could into reactivating the station and building the infrastructure to reopen the hunter's resort. Realizing his nation did not have the capability to completely reopen the world as it once was, he settled with the exportation of exotic animals to interstellar zoos, primarily those in the Lyran Alliance.

[3062] Within a year of Councilman Robert's elevation to president, he put Moroney's plan to reopen the world into action. Now open for more than two and a half years, the world is just beginning to attract the interstellar clientele it once did, with all trade passing straight through the rim collection. By all accounts, several Clansmen have even made their way covertly to the world to test their mettle against the dangerous world.

Unfortunately, with the FedCom Civil War already spiraling out of control and the rest of the Inner Sphere apparently becoming caught up in a new age of war, the future of this Rim Collection protectorate remains uncertain. For now, though, it is rapidly becoming the Collection's cash cow.
