First colonized for its vast mineral deposits and metal ore veins, Hot Springs became famous for its rich mineral water. The planet developed a tourist industry centered on the mineral enriched water and therapeutic hot springs. Tourists from across the Inner Sphere would journey to Hot Springs just to take "the baths," as they were called.

Hot Springs, however, was far from a resort world. I he planet's two continents are the results pf massive volcanic activity. Silver Springs, the larger of the two continents, is mostly covered in black crusty rock-ash, broken by the occasional outcropping of trees, a smattering of dense jungle or small lakes of brackish water. The Lucas Mountains Range found in the western part of Silver Springs is part of the volcano mountain chain that formed the planet's two continents.

Manta Springs is the less hostile of the two lava-strewn land-masses. The majority of the planet's population settled Manta Springs. The planetary capital, Boulder, was built from the rocky terrain. Here in the capital is the Institute for Advance Studies in Physical Therapy. It Is here that many people come to learn special training in therapeutic methods of physical therapy and limb replacement rehabilitation training.
