Background: Muunilinst was a planet located in the galaxy’s Outer Rim Territories that was home to a division of the InterGalactic Banking Clan and inhabited by members of the Muun species. It was a member of the Confederacy of Independent Systems under Chairman San Hill and was the site of a large battle during the Clone Wars.
Muunilinst was a lush world of forests, plains, and tall, jagged mountain peaks, with its skies said to be the most beautiful in the galaxy. It had a liquid iron core, a strong magnetic field, and was volcanically active throughout its known history. Its shallow oceans contained hundreds of “smokers,” which were conical volcanoes built up by powerful vents in the crust. Many, though not all, of these smokers spewed out superheated gases containing rich, pure precious metals from the planet’s core. The very cones surrounding these vents were made up of layers of precious metals, mixed in with the mollusks, tube-worms, and bioluminescent ferns nurtured by the heat and water. It was these natural formations that provided the Muuns with the almost inexhaustible wealth to guarantee the credit of the entire galaxy.
The greatest Muun city was Harnaidan, the headquarters of the InterGalactic Banking Clan, as well as the planet’s capital. Built around a series of magnificent spires reaching four kilometers into the sky, Harnaidan had a population of more than fifty million. It was built above caverns containing vast, naturally heated lakes and enormous hot springs heated by magma vents. While the higher castes went about their daily business, lower castes swam through the rich waters, collecting mollusks and algae. Harnaidan was, unfortunately for the Muuns, mostly leveled during the battle in the Clone Wars as the Grand Army of the Republic’s Self-Propelled Heavy Artillery blasted away buildings indiscriminately in order to annihilate Separatist forward positions.
A skyhook connected Harnaidan with High Port Space Center, an orbital city. The Golan space defense platforms defending Muunilinst could be seen from here, as well as a magnificent view of the planet glittering below. Mariunhus was a particularly rich city built around a smoker rich in gold, platinum, and other precious metals. Mariunhus was an example of a “vault-spire,” a virtual mountain of wealth, kept safe and secure, which could be mined at a moment’s notice to guarantee credit anywhere in the galaxy. Other smokers were known for industrial metals and were known as “mine-spires.”
