 Planetary Info
New Wessex was once a beautiful world that had light industry and moderate agricultural production. The true benefit to New Wessex however, is its location between the Lyran Commonwealth and the Draconis Combine. During the First Succession War a task group of light WarShips from the Commonwealth led a Lyran invasion of the world. These WarShips were supposed to bombard the planet, particularly cities, in the hope that they could simply destroy the defenders outright.
Unfortunately the Draconis Combine Admiralty had moved a task force of their own into orbit around New Wessex. During the resulting orbital battle, a damaged Lyran battleship tumbled into the planet's atmosphere and its power plants exploded. The resulting toxic materials showered over half the northern coastline of the northern continent, Jaricosa. Even after centuries of clean up efforts, the percentages of the population who contract cancer and other related diseases is higher than average.
New Wessex has been raided several times by the Lyran Commonwealth since that first horrific battle that tainted the atmosphere. The most noteworthy of these conflicts was an assault in 3021 by Wolf's Dragoons. This conflict was a preemptive strike authorized by the LCAF High Command to disrupt DCMS units that were gathering here for a strike into the Commonwealth. After fighting for a week near the capitol city (Hallanan) and in Harlow's Wood, the Dragoons withdrew.
As a part of The Republic of the Sphere's Prefecture I, most of New Wessex's residents still follow the Japanese culture they had during their time as a part of the Draconis Combine.
