Description:

During the Golden Century, Clan Snow Raven succeeded in establishing a colony on the appropriately named world of Hellgate. An inhospitable world valued for its position at a jump route nexus and for its sizable germanium deposits, Hellgate made establishing even a token colony a challenge. By the end of the century, the colony was a valuable, if not quite-self sustaining, outpost.

The colonies success soon attracted outside interest. In 2897, Clan steel Viper staged a successful Trial of Possession for Hellgate's agro-domes, giving them de facto control of the planet. The Vipers' control isolated Hellgate from the other Raven colonies, and within two years they were forced to cede the base to them as well. Due to the underhand tactics used taking Hellgate, The Ravens have been the Vipers sworn enemies ever since.

Throughout the early 30th century, the Ravens attempted to find allies to help them remove the Vipers from Hellgate, but without success. Finally their chance came in 3051, during the Year of Peace, from an unexpected source. Clan Jade Falcon had recently taken the world from the hated Vipers, and offered it back to the Ravens for what appeared to be a small price. For Operation Revival, the Ravens had contracted out parts of its massive WarShip fleet to the invading Clans, in return for trade concessions. In exchange for extending the Falcons loan of ships to ten years, the Falcons would cede Hellgate back to the Ravens.

Though the two Clans would eventually come to blows in 3055, the Ravens have so far maintained sole control of Hellgate.
