Background Information

Post  Brooks on Thu May 24, 2012 2:55 am

After the bloody Amaris Coup and the decade-long Liberation that followed. The Star League was a shadow of its former self. With the developed worlds of the Terran Hegemony in ruins, the other five Great Houses moved in, hoping to claim the advanced technologies restricted to the Hegemony for their own.

Unwilling to assume power over the Star League by military coup, despite having strong popular support, General Alexander Kerensky of the Star League Defense Force did the next best thing. He left the Inner Sphere, taking with him nearly 80% of the surviving SLDF on the Great Exodus. This move stripped the Hegemony worlds of the advanced and destructive technologies the Great Houses sought, and prevented them from recruiting among the highly-trained and battle-hardened SLDF. Although the following Succession Wars would cripple technology and devastate worlds across the Inner Sphere, they would not approach the obliterating intensity of the final years of the Coup.

In deep space, however, Kerensky's SLDF-in-Exile suffered much of the same problems as the rest of the Inner Sphere. Tempers frayed from the cramped conditions of their year-long journey, and with growing infighting along cultural lines, the death of Kerensky was the final blow that shattered the SLDF.

With their colonies, the Pentagon Worlds, descending into civil war, Alexander's son, Major-General Nicholas Kerensky, led those few still loyal to his father's dream even further into deep space. Believing that a new kind of society was needed to survive, Nicholas formed the twenty Clans. Civilians were assigned to the scientist, merchant, technician, and laborer castes as best befitted their abilities, while the warrior caste held power, but also responsibility, for the others.

Back on the Pentagon Worlds, the intensity of the initial Civil War had settled into small-scale skirmishing and resource raids, as survivors focused more on food and water than on striking out against their neighbors. Nation-states began to grow, with some survivors banding together to protect the ideals of the Star League, others seeking power, and others still just working to rebuild.

Clan Factions

Post  Brooks on Thu May 24, 2012 3:30 am

Clan Players will control one Khan and his or her Clan, from the list below.

The Clans are small, tightly-knit bands of the best soldiers from the old SLDF, supported by restricted yet productive civilian castes, and armed with the most advanced technologies of the Star League. Each Clan begins with equal military and industrial power, and roughly equal status, but intense competition will not leave them equal for long.

In Operation Klondike, the Clans are seeking to reclaim the Pentagon Worlds from the throes of anarchy, while simultaneously establishing their position in respect to one another.

Each Pentagon Power varies widely in size, skill, technology, and popular support, although in general they are less skilled and advanced, but far more numerous than the Clans.
