Planetary Description[edit]

Mallory's World is a planet noted for excellent conditions for agriculture, including a long growing season and fertile soil.[2] The planet also stands out for a nearly nightly and nearly planetwide aurora known to residents as the "color falls", a colorful natural light show resulting from the combination of Mallory's World's strong magnetic field, a system with high amounts of space dust and gases, and a powerful and somewhat unstable sun.[49]

Planetary History[edit]

Garden World[edit]

After it was discovered early during the Exodus from Terra the lush Mallory's World was quickly colonized. But the first settlers rejoiced too soon for a vicious alien parasite nearly wiped them all out. When Dr. Beck Mallory found a cure the settlers, in gratitude, named the world after him. Thanks to fertile soil and a long growing season agriculture began to flourish and when the planet joined the Federated Suns during the Age of War it exported huge amounts of foodstuff to neighboring systems already. The world reached its peak during the time of the Star League where it was jointly held with the Terran Hegemony[50] and new technologies allowed to increase the yield of the crops and herd animals even further. All continents were covered by gigantic farms and ranches and on the coastlines grew large cities. Furthermore during this time there was almost no pollution on Mallory's World because of the lack of heavy industry.[citation needed]


After the fall of the Star League came the Succession Wars and its devastation. Mallory's World's strategic position between three hostile Successor States - the Federated Suns, the Draconis Combine and the Capellan Confederation - together with its importance as major food producer caused a nearly constant struggle for this planet and its transformation into a single heavily fortified military base. The fighting was so fierce, that the continents of Joshua, Juniper and Oregon became infertile wastelands. Only the continent of New Helen was spared due to an agreement of the three nations at the beginning of the Third Succession War that declared it a safe zone.[51]

First Succession War[edit]

Mallory's World was invaded during the first half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2787.[13] Mallory's World was liberated by the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns in 2816 as part of the third and final major AFFS counteroffensive of the First Succession War against the Draconis Combine.[14]

Third Succession War[edit]

In 3010 the economy received a major boost when the Mallory's World Diaper Concern started operations. This facility produces billions of disposable diapers that are shipped to seven nearby worlds. The light industry, located on Oregon, helped bring in much needed capital for the reclamation of the wastelands. This was important because the three otherwise-barren continents - devoid of any significant plant life - create massive tornadoes and near-cataclysmic windstorms that scour the planet for eight months.[51]

Third Battle of Mallory's World[edit]

In 3013 the Third Battle of Mallory's World took place. Coordinator Takashi ordered the Warlord of Dieron to seize the planet's agricultural resources. The Second Sword of Light along with two other BattleMech regiments and ten non-'Mech regiments assaulted the planet. Three months of intense fighting and scorched earth tactics resulted in the planet being freed from the invaders, but at a high cost for the Federated Suns. The First Prince Ian Davion was slain while leading the planetary defenders.[21]

Fourth Battle of Mallory's World[edit]

In 3016 there was the subsequent duel between Yorinaga Kurita and Morgan Kell.[citation needed]


Since the rediscovery of advanced terraforming technologies the planet's wounds begin to heal slowly. Mallory's World experienced the quiet time after the Jihad as part of the Republic of the Sphere among the worlds given to Devlin Stone by the Federated Suns.

The Dark Age[edit]

On the 12th of November 3132 the faction known as Dragon's Fury raided Mallory's World.[52] Katana Tormark was hoping to capture the Fortner Industrials factory near the city of Savo, as the AgroMechs produced prolifically there could be militarized. Aaron Sandoval was unwilling to see the Dragon's Fury gain such a valuable asset, and dispatched the Ghost Legion from the Swordsworn to battle the raiders. The Fury - more specifically, the Brotherhood regiment of the Dragon's Fury - were forced out of the factory complex after a three-day battle in late November, but not before Savo had taken damage.[53] Dragon's Fury's Amaterasu also attempted to occupy Savo's spaceport. Their occupation ran into local resistance from Local 189 of the Brotherhood of Port and Warehouse Workers until Sandoval's Prince's Men drove the invaders out. A bronze statue of a Buster MOD was put up in the spaceport's warehouse district commemorating the resistance.[54]

During Operation TIAMAT in June 3149 Mallory's World was taken by the Forty-third Benjamin Regulars after destroying the planetary militia.[47]

Third Succession War[edit]




The planet's land area comprises four continents: Joshua, Juniper, New Helen and Oregon. Initially Mallory's World was a pleasant and fertile world but the brutal fighting during the Succession Wars turned three of its continents into barren wastelands, now only useful as industrial sites. Solely New Helen was largely spared and remains an agriculture area, though the other ones are beginning to recover due to the rediscovery of advanced terraforming technologies. The planet's capital Mallory City and the nearby military stronghold of Fort Dodger are located on northern Oregon.[citation needed]
