[edit] Planetary History

In the years immediately prior to the so-called Age of War, Promised Land became known for the quality of its champagne as far as Arcturus, capital of the newly-formed Lyran Commonwealth. When Archon Robert Marsden offhandedly remarked he would not mind drinking a glass of Promised Land's champagne in 2395, the rabidly loyal and supremely overconfident Social Generals selected by Marsden to command the Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces wilfully misinterpreted the Archon's comment to mean he wanted to capture the world.[16]

By the time Marsden learned of the Promised Land Assault, it was too late, with ten LCAF regiments, including two elite ranked Jump Infantry and Armored Vehicle regiments, wiped out. Instead of blaming their own impetuosity, the LCAF high command directed blame towards Marsden for "ordering" the disaster. Three weeks after news of the massacre on Promised Land broke, Archon Robert Marsden was found dead in his bedchambers.[16]

By the Third Succession War Promised Land was one of the major ports of entry for Lyran traders entering League space, the city closest to the planet's primary spaceport containing a magnificent bazaar teeming with an endless array of merchants, wholesalers and speculators.[17]
