Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

In 2788 Yed Posterior was struck by the DCMS, in a raid that targeted and destroyed the Argile Technologies' MechWorks factory.[42]

Dark Age era[edit]

Clan Wolf would invade Yed Posterior in 3137, the defending Republic of the Sphere militia choosing to fight a guerrilla war in response, concealing their forces in both the planet's turbulent seasonal storms and networks of industrial tunnels beneath some of its largest cities. The militia put up a valiant defense of the city of Henderton, a company of militia 'Mechs making best use of C3 Networks and ECM capabilities to keep the Wolves on the backfoot and pick off the invaders one by one. Ultimately a frustrated Alaric Wolf ordered his warriors to raze the city, forcing the Republic militia to surrender to protect the civilian population.[43]
