Planetary History[edit]

Riga was one of the worlds that formed a part of the Deep Periphery nation known as the Hanseatic League.[1]

Civil War Era[edit]

On 4 April 3067, Clan Diamond Shark merchant Mark Sennet attempted to conduct a live-fire demonstration of the Ha Otoko near Feuerberg for potential sale to the Hanseatic League. However, Regional Defense Force 4 Major Hohiro Watanabe betrayed him in order to steal Clan equipment. This effort was unsuccessful and Sennet escaped with his life and his 'Mech.[3]

Military Deployment[edit]


- At this point in time, RDF 4 was at full strength; fifteen percent of the RDF was using advanced equipment.

Planetary Locations[edit]

  • Broken Lands: A volcanic region of Südland, riddled with hollow lava tubes underneath brittle volcanic rock.[3]
    • Feuerberg: Also known as Fire Mountain. A large volcano.[3]
    • Kepten: A village of dubious provenance twenty kilometers from Feuerberg, not found on any Hanseatic maps and implied to be set up to cover for the theft of Mark Sennet's Ha Otoko.[3]
