Planetary History[edit]

Reunification War[edit]

Hardcore was a member of the Magistracy of Canopus when a Star League Defense Force task force under the command of Captain-General Marion Marik was assigned to conquer the Magistracy in 2577. Wildwood was one of the last worlds within the Magistracy to be conquered by the SLDF in the closing stages of the war.[4]

Invaded in 2588, there were no major MAF units on Hardcore to contest the invading forces, and the SLDF landed the VII Corps' 56th and 59th Brigades and the 401st Independent Regiment to take possession of the world. Local forces put up a token resistance before surrendering.[4][31]

Succession Wars[edit]

In the 31st century Hardcore is a temperate and warm world that is known throughout the Magistracy for being one of the most successful entertainment worlds. Targeting the upper crust of Magistracy and Inner Sphere society, the various entertainments available range from the tame (like ballet) to terrifying (including blood sports). Every spring, Hardcore hosts a series of BattleMech duels in the northern hemisphere. The citizens and visitors view these matches either on private monitors or on large public monitors. In 3025 Hardcore also began relying on the film industry to assist its economy.[1]
