Owner History[edit]

Planetary Info[edit]

Regulan forces attacked three worlds in the Marik Commonwealth - Futuna, Newcastle and Norfolk - as part of a campaign that began with Prince Titus Cameron-Jones renewing his claim to the title of Captain-General on the 22nd of September 3077. All three campaigns involved using nuclear bombardment to defeat or destroy defending Word of Blake forces.[8][9]
