History & Background (Dossier)
Claverse was scouted and settled beginning in 170.
- Claverse is a world on the verge of rebellion, proof that even the relative order and stability of the Principality of Caledon is not complete.
Claverse, Admiral Earl Maxwell's home world and military base, has remained dissatisfied with rule by the Campbell dynasty ever since the Admiral's defeat during the Dynastic Crisis of 1024. The world simmered with discontent for many years, and the Campbells were forced to deny Claverse many important freedoms due to the ever-present possibility of armed insurrection. A Royal Governor has been in charge of the planet, suspending the usual principles of the local self-rule, and the planetary naval base is much stronger than the ordinary Caledonian installations (which are generally about the size of Imperial scout installations, and spread thin through the Principality, to keep small but mobile naval task forces available throughout the kingdom).
The most recently appointed governor, Lord John Gunn, proved to be a poor choice to control the unruly planet. A minor riot caused him to take drastic measures, having naval troops fire into the crowd. The result was even more unrest, which Lord John responded to with orders for martial law to be imposed. "Freedom Fighters" have emerged on Claverse, mounting guerrilla raids, stockpiling arms and material, and further increasing tension.
- This is, of course, an ongoing headache for the Government, as the Claverse navy base is a fairly vital outpost against the ongoing decay in the Imperium.
