Planetary History[edit]

Periphery Uprising[edit]

The destruction of the 265th Heavy Assault Regiment on Perdition was the herald of the upcoming Periphery Uprising; a car visiting the 265th's base on the 14th of April 2765 contained a tactical nuclear weapon, which detonated at 1703 hours, vaporizing the base. Condemned as an atrocity by Commanding General Aleksandr Kerensky of the Star League Defense Force and the various nations of the Inner Sphere, the incident was greeted with jubilation on many Periphery worlds, behaviour which proved the tipping point on many worlds. As firefights erupted between SLDF garrisons and local insurgents tempers throughout the Periphery reached melting point, and two days after the bombing of the 265th New Vandenberg and seventeen other Taurian worlds withdrew from the Star League in protest at the actions of the SLDF.[21]

The Jihad[edit]

During the last week of July 3075 the Federated Suns-employed mercenary unit Hansen's Roughriders subverted the mercenary garrison on Perdition, Longwood's Bluecoats, before raiding the world. The Roughriders razed the factory complexes on Perdition before departing.[22][23] Between the Roughriders' attack and subsequent raids by Word of Blake forces all of the industry on Perdition had been destroyed by 3081.[24] Despite losing all its manufacturing capabilities, in 3079 it became the host of the Perdition Taurian Academy.[1]
