 Planetary Info
Styx is a world of storms, flash floods, and mudslides, wild weather patterns caused by the gravitational pull of the planet's three moons. The planet has three continents, Epimethius, Gehenna and Perdition. The first colonists on Styx established their cities on the open plains of Epimetheus, the main continent, because this area received the weakest storms. Styx was one of the worlds abandoned by the Terran Alliance following the Outer Reaches Rebellion and the Demarcation Declaration of 2242, but Styx was incorporated into the Terran Hegemony within a century, becoming one of the worlds within the Lone Star Province.
A few years after these first cities were established, geologists found extensive radioactive ores and other mineral resources that caused a few mining companies to arrive on-world; the output from these mines contributed signficantly to the Terran Hegemony's economy, to the extent that the neighbouring Draconis Combine wanted the world. This ongoing tension resulted in the first battle between BattleMechs.
In 2443 the DCMS sent a company of tanks to Styx to raid the warehouses and refineries, hopefully capturing them intact for use by the Combine. The defenders, a lance of Terran Hegemony BattleMechs from the 801st Heavy Armor Regiment, met the company of tanks with infantry support outside the city of Barbados. The muddy plains impeded the Kuritan armor, while the 'Mechs simply strode around with no problem; the net result was the complete destruction of the raiding Draconis unit, and the emergence of the BattleMech as the preeminent combat unit.
After the fall of the Star League, the Draconis Combine took control of the world and kept it until the Word of Blake Jihad. Forces from the allied coalition assembled by Devlin Stone were attempting to liberate Styx in May 3077 as a part of Operation SCOUR when a Blakist ambushed badly damaged the 1st New Ivaarsen Chasseurs. In response, on the 14th of May the commander of the 19th Arcturan Guards authorised the bombardment of the base complex housing the Styx Protectorate Militia with tactical nuclear weapons. The resulting bombardment collapsed a number of mines in the area and destroyed the entire of the city in which the base complex lay. When challenged, the Lyran commander of the 19th Arcturan Guards remarked "they're just Dracs, nobody important" - a comment which would become infamous in the annals of the liberation. The words spoken by Leftenant General Lucas Hoffman attracted outrage in the local media, and most likely elsewhere. Casualties from the two tactical nukes detonated as airbursts over the capital city of Styx amounted to at least 15,000 civilians.
