Planetary Description[edit]

Marshall is a system and planet in the center of the Kerensky Cluster region of Clan space.[9]

History[edit]

Colonization[edit]

Marshall was colonized by the Clans by the 29th century. Its Terran-like atmosphere and ecology made it a popular site for colonization, leading to a number of Clans holding territory on the world. Majority of the colonized lands had gone to Clan Goliath Scorpions and Steel Vipers, fifth of the planet going to the Clan Star Adder. The remaining Clans had settled for small remaining portions of the planet. With dense population between rivial Clans, this lead to number of inter-clan conflicts for resources.[10]

Star Adder Enclave Massacre[edit]

In 2844, Clan Mongoose assaulted Star Adder's Marshall enclave. Star Colonel Miguel Riley and his Cluster of Mongoose warriors would conduct a campaign of scorched earth, destroying every bit of infrastructure they happened across. After the last garrison units fell to the invaders, the Star Adder civilians took up arms against the Mongoose warriors to protect their homes. Angered by this act of resistance from non-warrior castes members, the Mongoose commander ordered his troops to kill every colonist. Outraged by this act, the Star Adder's saKhan Dembe N'Buta tracked the Cluster to the Mongoose enclave on Tokasha. There he and the Quasar Keshik attacked with fury, killing or capturing all of the Mongoose warriors involved in this unClan-like act of aggression. He then claimed the colony and its entire population, before having them transported back to Marshall to repopulate their colony with the former Mongoose civilians.[11][12]

31st Century[edit]

In 3050 Clan Ice Hellion targeted the only Clan Snow Raven enclave on Marshall. They landed, but the Ravens aerospace superiority inflicted massive losses on the Hellion unit. Despite this the Hellions were able to take the research station and eliminate the only holding the Ravens had on the world.[13]

As of 3062, six different Clans each had enclaves on Marshall, leading to frequent and numerous Trials.[14] Civilians on the planet, so used to their enclaves changing hand, have their paperwork setup to have their Clan logos changeable for typical results of a trial.[15]

Geography & Neighboring Worlds in System[edit]

Marshall is composed of six continents, though two are mostly covered by the polar ice caps. Though the plant is similar to Terra in some ways, much of the land is wasteland.[14] Because of this population was squeezed into several quarters, while few dedicated areas serve as dueling grounds. The planet is noted for being similar to Terra when it was in its early stages of development.

In same star system, Marshall system has a gas giant world named Xian, its moon, Diamondstar, has has ecosystem breathable atmosphere and scurb flora. The moon had been in possession of the Steel Vipers until 3042. Clan Jade Falcon claimed it for themselves, after years of its scientist studying the moon's lifeforms and keen interest in its mineral wealth.[14]
