The Wynn's Roost system is the location of at least one habitable world or construct and as at 2750 was the regional capital of the Traders Domain region of the Outworlds Alliance.[2]

System Description[edit]

Wynn's Roost is located near the Vangburg and Nerum systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Wynn's Roost system was colonized by Turner Wynn of the Wynn Conglomerate as part of the Outworlds Alliance during the Golden Years of the Star League era[2][3]. The colony owed its existence to mining operations for rare materials and the production of consumer goods, built with low-cost colonial labor. The planet would become the administrative capital of the Outworld Allicance Trader Domain region[1].

During the Periphery rebellion the planets population would stay loyal to the Star League, as it was mostly settled by Inner Sphere colonists. In 2835 the planet would lead the secession of the Trader's Domain from the Outworld Alliance and become the capital of the short lived micro-state[4]. The state would be troubled from the beginning due to it's member worlds being unable to cooperate and ultimately break up the Domain. It would become a independent and isolated world by 2900, while pirates roamed the Outworlds Wastes. Also the neighbour planets would stage raid for resources of the planet. These pirates raids would over the years destroy several cities and kill in time millions of the world's citizenry by the Thirty Century.[5] However after the Anti-Pirate actions of the Major Powers in the 30th Century the Outworlds Wastes region has become gradually more stable. Under this conditions the planet has thrived once more and established trade relations and improved, technology, the quality of living and its defences.

Wynn's Roost vanished from maps during the Third Succession War,[6][7] indicating that the system had been rendered too insignificant to merit further recording.

Planetary Rulers[edit]

The planets government is nominally an representative democracy, however dominated by the bureaucracy and the executive. The government is styled after the example of the Terran Hegemony. Presidents can serve at maximum two terms. The long term stable government has proved an important factor in dealing with the isolation of the colony. President Younger Wynn V led the planet and the Traders Domain Region 2822 into secession. Most president that served are just faceless bureaucrats to the population. Annald Russolillo (3031-3044) was the first of a series of unusual charismatic presidents. His main goal was attracting foreign educators. Between 3059-3072 President Tanala Dyson ruled the planet and had to deal with the reality of Clan Snow Raven operating in the area and established the standing "Dyson Doctrine”[8]. As of 3120 President Christopher Gowens ruled the Planet. Under his reign the "New Russolillo Skills Program" was implemented and Wynn's Roost established a trade mission on New Avalon and is starting to attract skilled immigrants from the 'Golden Five Worlds' in the Federated Suns[9].

Geography[edit]

Wynne's Roost has five continents, Oneland, Twoland, Threeland, Turnerland and Wynnland. Oneland, Twoland and Threeland have been named originally after the Wives of the founder of the Colony, Turner Wynn. After an ugly divorce he ordered the continents renamed[10]. The planet and its moon are tidally locked, producing 77 hour long days. The planet has varied biomes from arctic wastes to tropical islands and vast forests.

Human life has to handle with high UV contents. High sulfur content in the atmosphere is released by geological and biological actions. Crude native animals are in competition with imported lifeforms. The ecosystem therefore tends to be unstable. The planet looks pleasant from orbit and has lots of water, however this water is strongly corrosive, due to high acidity. Structures and vehicles (especially ships) need to be hardened and specially built to resist. Most of the planets cities have communal places and streets covered by tent like structures to protect their inhabitants and buildings tend to be close together. Cities are often build to have pavements for pedestrians, bicyclists, and electrified public transports under tented structures, with roads for vehicles on top. Water transportation is also common. Buildings are slightly over-pressurized to keep the corrosive atmosphere out.

Industrial Centers[edit]

The planet exports mostly minerals such as germanium, platinum, rhenium, and rare earth elements[11]. High U-235 deposits are also abundant. Wynn’s Roost has little hard currency for interstellar trade but actively attracts skilled immigrant by promising them large homes, high wages in planetary scrip, and personal servants[12]. Most industrial centres are located near water to ease transportation. As of 3130 crude deuterium-burning and fission reactors provide energy, with modern protium-reactors only decades away[13]. Due the abundance of petroleum a car culture for long distance travel has developed. The planet struggles to keep up an aerospace industry and only produces some large aircraft. Earthmovers produced on Wynn's Roost were the reason for a raid in 2822 by its neighbour planet Ammon (OA).

Military Deployment[edit]

The planet might have nuclear weapons, as several test sites seem to indicate, but if so, has ruled against using them to fight Clan Snow Raven. Instead alternative non-combat trials are planned as contingency plans, like a "Dance off Trial"[14]. The planet has a well paid and sizeable milita for a planet in the Outworlds wastes. Equipment consists primarily of locally-built primitive tanks, mechanized infantry, and some large oceanic gunboats. It is barely able to support a wing of aerospace fighters and rarely affords more than a company of mercenary BattleMech[15].
