Planetary History[edit]

The Jihad[edit]

On the 31st of January 3071, the Democracy Now seperatist movement within the Lyran Alliance moved to try and establish the Alarion Province as a democratic stronghold. The Democracy Now movement on Novara was led by Kalvin Strauss, and intended for Novara to be the center of their proposed new state.[31] On the 21st of December 3071 Kelvin Strauss was assassinated during a campaign rally on Novara. The other leader of Democracy Now, Lindon Ashley, narrowly survived an assassination attempt on Calafell on the same day.[32][33]

Having survived the assassination attempt on Calafell, Ashley resurfaced on Novara on the 15 of March 3072 and took up leadership of the Democracy Now movement.[34][33] At the end of June 3072 Democracy Now unveiled its own Democratic People's Army - consisting largely of the mercenary unit Eriksson's Einherjar.[35][36] This was followed a few weeks later with an assault on Novara by the Kaumberg Planetary Guard, who managed to shatter the Democratic People's Army on the 15th of August 3072, but were unable to capture Ashley.[37][36]
