Description:

A beautiful world during the height of the Star League, Dalkeith was turned into a nuclear wasteland during the savagery of the Succession Wars. Of Dalkeith’s three continents, only Dunnbar is remotely habitable. Dunnbar is a large landmass that only barely supports its current population. In 2775, Dalkeith boasted a population over two billion; three centuries later it barely reaches three hundred million. The atmosphere is tainted with high levels of carbon dioxide and micro dust, requiring the use of filtered breathing devices.

During the First Succession War, House Kurita attacked Dalkeith’s main continent of Rockmeir with over a dozen 100-megaton nuclear weapons, blanketing the continent and destroying the Star League Castle Brian, the planet’s capital of Newhaven, and nearly the entire population. The continent of Devarick was poisoned by more nuclear weapons and chemical attacks against the defending Lyran forces. Dalkeith would have been abandoned entirely had it not been for the planet’s rich resources in radioactive metals and iron-ores that lay beneath Dunnbar’s Alveria mountain range.

With its close proximity to the Combine border, Dalkeith has been used to stage raids against both the Draconis combine and later the Clans. Though life looks extremely hard to an outsider, the natives have adapted to their surroundings. Native Dalkeithians have a natural resistance to the effects of some types of radiation.
