Description[edit]

Overlord Stables is considered one of the most honest stables in Solaris, with a reputation for fairness and excellent working conditions.[1] The Stable is based in Silesia.[2]

History[edit]

The Stable was formed in 3001.[2]

The Stable was considered one of the fairness, and was the employer of choice among Silesia's finest MechWarriors. The Stables' star was rising in the 3050s but by the time of the Solaris Riots on 3062 they have trouble fielding a top contender. With the death of Craig Orme, things went to worse, and though some contenders have show promise lately (most of them veterans of the Stables alliance with the Skye Tigers Stables during the Riots), but it is yet to be seen if they can at least match Orme's success.[3]

Stablemaster and Owner[edit]

  • Rhianna Murray is regarded as a fair businesswoman with huge experience in selecting skilled MechWarriors.[1] 53 on 3067 is known for her skill to detect deception. She asks and gives the very best to her MechWarriors.[3]
