Murkhana II was a planet that was once covered in glaciers. Researchers hypothosize that a near miss with a planetoid or a large meteorite impact altered the planet's rotation and position, moving it into a closer orbit of the system's star. The new-found closer proximity to the sun has caused the planet's glaciers to recede, leaving in their wake a land full of various types of terrain from rock, forest, jungle, and desert. This glacial erosion is what has made the Murkhana II's landscape so diverse and breathtaking. Millenia of eriosion had left behind an assortment of maze-liked caves within Murkhana II, which have led to the formation of a network of aquifers and underground lakes within the porous structure of the planet, which eventually feed the equatorial Murk Sea. Because of the danger posed by these geologic formations, much of the caves remain unexplored. It has long been rumored that a subspecies of Krayt Dragons live deep within them, but that has yet to be confirmed by the planet's biologists. It is said that a secret group of Tresarians warriors, known as the "Hunt Masters" hunt these dragons as a rite of passage.
