Description:

Like most worlds close to Terra in the dark days leading to the Star League’s fall, the once-thriving planet of Epsilon Indi suffered badly at the hands of Amaris forces during the crisis. Captured early in the coup through a liberal use of neutron weapons and lightning strikes against orbital defense sites, the population was decimated and the world became a gauntlet for SLDF forces to pass through.

An entire SLDF fleet and its attached ground forces were obliterated while attempting to liberate the planet early in Kerensky’s campaign, demonstrating the horrific costs of any frontal assault. The eventual assault that broke the hold of Amaris’ troops, however, led the Usurper’s men to resort to scorched-earth tactics, razing cities and factories with what remained in their nuclear arsenal.

After the League’s collapse, the Capellan Confederation claimed the world but devoted few resources to restoring it. The Federated Commonwealth, who captured the world during the Forth Succession War, designed and funded a few programs to rebuild in the areas not blanketed by radiation. Surveys of the planet’s crust showed rich in mineral deposits, and small mining companies set up shop. Between 3034 and 3049, the planet’s tiny population doubled as the mining made its people fiercely proud of themselves and their world. Epsilon Indi’s increasing viability, however, also made it attractive to Sun-Tzu Liao, who installed Zhanzheng de guang networks on the planet in hopes of destabilizing its government.

The Zhanzheng de guang rose up against the FedCom government during the Sarna March invasion of 3057, and captured several towns. Epsilon’s citizens reacted swiftly and violently, forming vigilante groups and working with the regular militia. One spectacular vigilante attack killed most of the Liaoist leaders, effectively ending the revolution as an organized crusade.

The Liaoist forces were aided by the Langendorf Lancers, a Marik-backed mercenary unit. The Lancers fought a protracted campaign against the forces of Duke Abraham. Just when Abraham’s forces were about to succumb, the duke called in his own mercenary troops. Deployment of Wolf’s Dragoons and the Tooth of Ymir has restored the status quo.

Today, even centuries later, Epsilon Indi is a wasteland of deserts, empty seabeds, and bombed-out cities, whose population now inhabits only the polar regions, which were spared most of the fallout. The rich mineral deposits across the planet’s four main landmasses are now accessible to mining operations based in the polar continents of Boreria in the north, and Kantiles in the south.

Kirst, Epsilon Indi’s largest mining settlement, is located on the northern shore of Kantiles, a scant 400 kilometers from the southern edge of the uninhabitable wastes of the Surterra continent. The north-equatorial landmass of Ithicasia, just east of Surterra, suffered just as badly from the damage of the Amaris occupation and liberation, but is nonetheless home to the domed mining colony of Vogelton.

The capital of Epsilon Indi is New Rhodes.
