Owner History

Planetary Locations

Epsilon Indi has four main continents; the colonists named the northern polar continent Boreria and the southern polar continent Kantiles. The continent located north of the equator was named Ithicasia, and south of Ithicasia was the continent of Surterra.[1]

Planetary History

Early History

The Terran Alliance probe Magellan Five first discovered the planet. Epsilon Indi also hosted a Star League-era Space Defense System that was responsible for destroying the 34th Royal BattleMech Division and the 568th Armed Transport Flotilla during the Amaris Civil War.[13] Amaris' forces captured Epsilon Indi during Operation APOTHEOSIS by liberally using neutron weapons against orbital defense sites along with lightning attacks, decimating the population of the planet in the process. The Amaris Empire forces turned the planet into a brutal gauntlet that inflicted heavy damage on the Star League Defense Force troops that attempted to liberate it during the Amaris Civil War. Although the SLDF was able to liberate the planet, the Amaris Empire forces engaged in scorched-earth tactics as they withdrew, deploying the remainder of their nuclear weapons in the process; the planet was left devastated, and centuries later the marks of the brutal tactics were still visible. As late as the thirty-second century the much-reduced population of the planet were largely confined to living in the polar regions, which had managed to escape most of the fallout from the nuclear weapons; the remainder of the planet was heavily marked with deserts, empty seabeds and the abandoned and bombed-out remains of cities.[1]

Jihad

Epsilon Indi was one of the first worlds taken by the Word of Blake during the Jihad, captured along with Fletcher and Tall Trees in a campaign that saw all three worlds annexed by the Word of Blake Protectorate by the 30th of December 3067.[11] On the 6th of June 3075 Epsilon Indi was one of three worlds within the Word of Blake Protectorate to be raided simultaneously by unidentified forces. The raiding force on Epsilon Indi damaged the local Protectorate units and was rumoured to be one of the Word of Blake's own Shadow Divisions.[14][15] While in control of Epsilon Indi the Blakists conducted a number of operations from Boreria and the capital city, New Rhodes, in particular.[1]

In the last week of February 3078 the First Sword of Light regiment landed on the world and drove off the Blakists. Unfortunately the Blakists deployed a biological weapon before they left the world, poisoning the water table. This biological attack affected the water supply to several major cities, and when coupled with the severe damage inflicted in the conventional conflict, led several observers to speculate that the population would need to relocate or face extinction.[16][17]

The Dark Age

During the Dark Age the population of Epsilon Indi managed to gain access to the rich mineral deposits across all four continents from mining operations in Boreria and Kantiles. The largest of the mining settlements, Kirst, was located on the northern shore of Kantiles and was just four hundred kilometes from the southern edge of Surterra, which remained an uninhabitable wastes. Surterra also remained badly scarred from the battles during the Star League era, but was also home to the mining colony of Vogelton, which was located inside a dome. Despite the five decades of peace after the Jihad Epsilon Indi remained a world still struggling to recover from the wars that had marred it.[1]
