History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The greatest tragedy in this subsector was on Ledge, where 10 billion died. A three-year conflict between Lucan and the Solomani systematically shattered the world’s cities. Only 300 million were combat casualties; the remaining 9.7 billion succumbed to disease, starvation, dehydration, and lawlessness. Ironically, the battle for Ledge continues.

The loyalist planetary military forces still hold the upper hand, cadred by the last of Lucan’s troops. The Solomani forces are their primary opposition and remain holed up in the mountain ranges that ring the edge of the southern polar circle. Twenty percent of the planet’s population supports the Solomani, whose conduct has been more humane than Lucan's legionnaires'.

With the planet's economic infrastructure blasted to smithereens,the sides produce their own materiel. The locals manage TL 7 production, and the renegade Solomani make do with TL 6, but both seek out high-tech imports.

Ledge is a grim paradise for mercenaries and scavengers. Most mercenaries work forthe loyalists, including two TL 9 mechanized infantry regiments from the Vassalry Judiciate. The units working for the Solomani are resewed for special operations and include armored batalions from the New Order Vigilance Alliance.

Civilian life is profitable for scavengers and technicians which are highly sought by both sides.

Local Nobility[edit]

Ledge, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.
