Planetary History[edit]

The Jihad[edit]

After the attacks on the nearby worlds of Khon Kaen and Poulsbo in March 3075 by what were purported to be Circinian forces - including the liberal use of suicide bombers - the Saltillo Port Authority began quarantining all shipments from either world to allow for checks to be made to ensure that suicide bombers and terrorists were unable to move from either world to Saltillo.[11]

The Dark Age[edit]

Saltillo was attacked by mercenary units in the employ of the Lyran Commonwealth in 3113. The defending Second Tamarind Regulars faced the Spider's Web Battalion of Wolf's Dragoons and the Seventeenth Recon Regiment - also known as Camacho's Caballeros; the Second managed to push the Caballeros off Saltillo.[1]
