The Zorn's Keep system consists of at least one habitable world and as at 3145 was an independent system in the Periphery close to the border between the Periphery, the Free Worlds League and the Lyran Commonwealth.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Zorn's Keep system is located near the Sierra and Maximillian systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Zorn's Keep system was either settled during the Succession Wars or became significant enough for Inner Sphere nations to record its position.[3][4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

It was reported in the media on Alphard in September 3077 that couriers from the Circinus Federation border of the Hegemony were bringing news that a Marian offensive against the Federation had died effectively stillborn, with probing attacks on the planets of Thadora's Land and Zorn's Keep being rebuffed by significantly stronger Federation forces. The rumoured defeat was generally assumed to be evidence that the Federation was receiving large scale assistance from the Word of Blake.[21]
