Planetary History[edit]

Colonists from the Federal Democratic Republics of Finland, Norway and Sweden emigrated in significant numbers after the end of the War Damage Tax payments levied on them as a part of the international rebuilding effort following the Second Soviet Civil War. Choosing a world far from Terra and the oppressive bureaucracy that went with it, the first colonists left in the mid-Twenty-third century and within sixty years had settled Rasalhague and eight other nearby worlds[1] including Svelvik.[2] In the late Twenty-third century these worlds created a joint government to oversee the development of the worlds, creating the Rasalhague Consortium. Contact with other interstellar nations led to the Consortium evolving into the short-lived Principality of Rasalhague, prior to the Principality being conquered by the Draconis Combine in the early to mid Twenty-fourth century.[1]

Second Succession War[edit]

This planet was location of the first sighting of the Minnesota Tribe in 2825 when they appeared without warning. They took what supplies they wanted and then immediately left. [34]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Svelvik was conquered by Clan Wolf during Operation Revival when the 11th Wolf Guards' Supernova Command faced off against the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Svelvik Mechanized Militia around Dawson Bluffs. The militia forces proved no match and quickly folded after their first encounter with Supernova Command's Elementals.[35]

Jihad[edit]

Svelvik was conquered again during the Jihad when Clan Hell's Horses launched a invasion of the Clan Wolf holdings in the Inner Sphere in early 3071, acquiring holdings for their own relocation to Spheroid space. Svelvik was seized by the Hell's Horses at some point in March or early April, who then consolidated their hold on the world.[25]
