Planetary History[edit]

Giausar was charted early on but wasn't colonized immediately. It took explorers from the Terran Alliance discovering that the third planet could support life to bring interest to this small world. Most of the colonization efforts focused on the large continent, named Adelaide by the colonists. Covered in rolling hills and wide plains broken up by a few old-growth forests, colonists began to export iron ore, timber, and coal. The other continent was named Deception since its green color comes from sunlight reflected off of green soil. Environmentally, Deception is a vast desert. However there are large amounts of natural gas and petroleum located under Deception's green surface, so many refineries and drilling operations can be found. Finally, the world's strategic position on the Lyran Commonwealth/Free Worlds League border insures that it gets plenty of merchant traffic.[34]

The Jihad[edit]

Following the invasion of the Free Worlds League by the Skye and Bolan Provinces of the Lyran Alliance in what was termed Operation ÜBERSCHATTEN, Marshall Jeremy Brett took command of the local FWLM and launched a counteroffensive, under the name Operation BROKEN FIST. BROKEN FIST went beyond simply attempting to recapture worlds that the Lyrans had seized, striking into Lyran space at numerous worlds. Giausar was one of the worlds hit and was attacked by the League forces on the 2nd of September 3068.[25]
