Apocryphal Content Starts

The information after this notice comes from apocryphal sources; the canonicity of such information is uncertain.
Please view the reference page for information regarding their canonicity.

The database of the (apocryphal) 1989 video game MechWarrior, set around the year 3025, gives a population of 765 million for Skokie and describes the environment as "ice" (out of only three impressions of planetary environments given in the game, these being "desert", "ice", or "tropical"). The description one-liner reads "An ice world rich in minerals."

Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

In October 3050 Skokie was conquered by Clan Wolf as part of Operation Revival's Fourth Wave, with major battles taking place at Trupelo and Port Marion. The 4th Striker Cluster's Trinaries Second and Third Mixed Services expected an easy fight against the 1st and 2nd Skokie Militia Tank Regiments, which lived down to their expectations by fleeing. While few losses were had on either side during the fight, the planet itself proved to be a more effective combatant than its inhabitants. The Skokie Shivers, a local variant of meningitis, struck down two-thirds of the Wolf invaders. The units were effectively removed from the invasion while they were under quarantine until they recovered.[42]
