Drask's Den
System information
X:Y Coordinates -86.54 : 489.18[e]

The Drask's Den system was home to at least one habitable world and as at 3145 was located in the Periphery region known as The Barrens.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Drask's Den system is located near the Crellacor and The Rock systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Drask's Den system was either colonised during the Third Succession War or was an already-inhabited system that became significant enough to be recorded on maps by Inner Sphere nations at some point during this era.[3][4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

At the start of the Clan Invasion in August 3049 Drask's Den was attacked by the Red Keshik of Clan Wolf's Delta Galaxy. Drask's Guards stood their ground in Jallington Vale but many of their 'Mechs and vehicles were destroyed by Red Keshik's AeroSpace Fighters without even firing a shot. The survivors were mopped up by the Keshik's ground forces and the planet conquered.[32][33]

Dark Age[edit]

Later Clan Hell's Horses took control of the system, but in 3085 they withdrew from the world, leaving the population to stand on their own. Drask's Den joined with several other systems that were in the same situation, and by 3086 five systems had formed the Republic of the Barrens.[34]

By the onset of the Dark Age in 3130, Drask's Den had become a part of the region known as The Barrens.[30]
