Planetary History[edit]

Jihad[edit]

On the 11th of November 3077, Landfall was one of four Free Worlds League worlds to be attacked by the Marian Hegemony; various Legions from the Marian Hegemony Armed Forces struck at Landfall along with Kendall, Lahti and San Nicolas. On Kendall, the defending FWLM forces fought back with nuclear weapons, destroying the bulk of II Legio and forcing the few survivors to retreat back to Landfall in December.[27]

Dark Age[edit]

In 3117 Landfall was the site of an open rebellion against the Marian Hegemony rule of the planet, instigated by groups and individuals looking to see Landfall rejoin the Free Worlds League. Named the Free Leaguers, the rebels were able to gather resources from other nearby systems that used to be members of the League and launched their rebellion, swiftly gaining control of large portions of Landfall. The rebellion was ultimately put down by forces from II Legio, in part because of a significant defeat for the rebels at the town of New Erewhon when Marauder battle armor suits attached to II Legio fought a close-quarters battle with rebel 'Mechs in the streets, a battle that saw the local rebel leader captured alive after being pulled out of the broken remains of his Cadaver. The subsequent treason trial and execution of that leader, T. "Pony Man" Harris, was broadcast throughout the Hegemony.[37][38]
