According to the (apocryphal) German BattleTech novel Karma, Sadurni was taken from the Capellan Confederation by the Free Worlds League only "a few years" before 3028, specifically to press citizens from a longtime Capellan planet into service for SAFE.

A few chapters of a subsequent, equally apocryphal novel (Gier) are set on Sadurni.

Planetary Info[edit]

Sadurni was long known for the quality of its marble and the skill of the stoneworkers who crafted it. Sadurni marble could be found in the Court of the Star League on Terra.[1]

Prior to the Fall of the Star League, Sadurni was the headquarters of the 7th Army (Star League) of the Star League Defense Force.[26]

During the Andurien Secession the FWLM landed on this agricultural world. Though direct fighting killed some citizens, many of the people who died during the conflict died because of the collapse of the economies of Sadurni's cities. People fleeing the cities relied on the kindness of strangers and friends and family members in the countryside. Shortly after these famines occurred, the Free Worlds League government sponsored relief efforts under military authority. As a result, life in the cities returned to a semblance of normality. Patra, the main continent and location of most cities, was hardest hit during the war. To bring in much-needed cash, the stoneworkers of Sadurni travelled to Andurien and other Duchy worlds, rebuilding their damaged cities. This means that non-essential construction and repair of Sadurni's cities was deferred. Even in late 3067 some of the damage remained in place.[1]

The two other continents, Xanthi and Katerini, were nowhere nearly as badly damaged as Patra and quickly recovered from the war.[1]

The database of the (apocryphal) 1989 video game MechWarrior, set around the year 3025, gives a population of 456 million for Sadurni and describes the environment as "ice" (out of only three broad impressions of planetary environments given in the game, these being "desert", "ice", or "tropical"). The description one-liner reads "A frozen, barren, lifeless rock - see you there."

Notes[edit]

The apocryphal novel Karma notes that the Free Worlds League captured Sadurni from the Capellan Confederation "a few years" prior to 3028 for the explicit purpose of pressing Capellan citizens into service for SAFE, the League's secret service. This must obviously have occurred prior to 3025 judging from canonical sources, and presumably also prior to the 3022 Concord of Kapteyn that created a standoff between the League and the Confederation.
