Planetary Info[edit]

Early History[edit]

Komephoros was settled by colonists looking to take advantage of the vast mineral resources they suspected were underneath the glaciers of this frozen world. The first wave of settlers vanished without a trace however, and their fate wasn't discovered until a decade passed and a new group of colonists arrived. These settlers discovered Luega del Condenado (The Lake of the Damned).[1]

Apparently the first colonists had settled in a valley located relatively close to an ocean. A rogue asteroid slammed into the ocean with enough force to send a tsunami into the river valley. The colonists might have survived in their DropShips, but Komephoros' three year winter struck shortly after and turned the new lake into a frozen block of ice that completely shrouded the ships. (Amazingly, the DropShip's distress beacons were operating under the ice, which led the second wave of colonists to the location of the lost valley.) The destroyed valley is left to its own devices; The nearest modern settlement is 300 kilometers away.[1]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

Kompehoros was one of the worlds invaded by the Lyran Commonwealth during Operation GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG, the major Lyran Commonwealth offensive of the Fourth Succession War. Attacked by the Fourth Skye Rangers during the exploitation phase of GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG[47] following the order by Archon Katrina Steiner on the 21st of October 3028 to launch a second wave of attacks,[21] Kompehoros was one of two worlds to be attacked simultaneously by the Rangers. The Rangers' Second Battalion and Lightning Company were still busily subduing Kompehoros when the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery launched a wave of counter-attacks - counter-attacks that included dropping the Seventeenth Benjamin Regulars on Kompehoros. The Rangers' First and Third Battalions were on Kimball II at the time, and were also hit by a counter-attack in the form of the Third Dieron Regulars. The Rangers were still holding their own when a lull in Lyran offensive operations began in early 3029, but being caught divided had negative effects on both the Rangers' ability to operate effectively and their pride.[22]

The Rangers used the lull in major combat operations well, resting their troops and preparing new plans, and when the orders were issued to restart offensive operations in May 3029 the Rangers were ready, well-rested and well-prepared. The Rangers swiftly pushed the Regulars out of their rich river valley and began chasing them around the planet, until the Regulars were recalled by the DCMS in July, despite still having the edge on the Rangers in terms of numbers.[23]

The Dark Age[edit]

Spared the most violent conflicts of the Succession Wars and with even the Jihad having little effect on Komephoros, the mining industries on the planet were intact when Komephoros joined the Republic of the Sphere.[1]
