Planetary Info[edit]

Trondheim has four satellites: Strinda, Leinstrand, Byneset, and Tiller. The capital city is named Misby Flats, and is located on the Fosen continent. The other continents are Nidaros, Heimdal, and Dovre.[37]

Planetary History[edit]

Early 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[2] including Trondheim.[3] 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.[2]

Succession Wars[edit]

Third Succession War[edit]

In 3022 several volcanoes on the surface of Trondheim began erupting, putting massive amounts of ash into the atmosphere. This affected the amount of sunlight reaching the world's surface, and as a consequence, affected the world's ecology. Fortunately the active geology allowed easy access to the precious metals and rare minerals in the planet's crust.[1]

By 3025 the people of Trondheim seemed to be as volatile as the world they inhabit. Over the centuries, they had participated in many protests, rebellions, and attempted revolutions, with most of them requiring the Arm of the Dragon to put id down. Though in 3025 the people of the planet were quiet, this did not reduce the size of the ISF agents in the planet.[38]

Ronin War[edit]

Trondheim was a longtime possession of the Draconis Combine, but the Combine gave it up in 3034 when the Free Rasalhague Republic was created. [citation needed]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Operation Revival[edit]

Trondheim was conquered by Clan Ghost Bear in May of 3050, one of three targets taken in by the Ghost Bears during the second wave of Operation REVIVAL. The planetary garrison, the Trondheim Freedom Defenders, was a mixed combined-arms force of two mechanized infantry regiments, an aerospace wing, two heavy armor battalions and a company of BattleMechs. Against this force the 3rd Bear Guards deployed their 12th Battle Trinary, 34th Fighter Binary and Trinary Command units. A mobile campaign fought across most of the planet's largest continents was waged in the battle for control of Trondheim, beginning first on the Lava Web, a flat plain of lava whose top crust varies in thickness. The defenders managed to lure a Star of heavy Ghost Bear OmniMechs onto this plain, where their weight caused them to crash through the crust and sink into the lava below. The rest of the battle was spent as the avenging Clan forces chased the defenders through the open fields of Millargro to the crowded streets of Misby Flats, where the defenders were finally pinned down and destroyed.[39]

Clan Diamond Shark takes over[edit]

On 16 July 3065, Clan Diamond Shark established a garrison on Trondheim as part of their plan to set up trading posts in the Clans' Inner Sphere Occupation Zones.[40] [41]

Dark Age[edit]

The Second Combine-Dominion War[edit]

During the Second Combine-Dominion War Trondheim was assaulted in mid-March 3100 by the DCMS. The Combine's attempt to conquer the planet was ultimately unsuccessful.[42]
