In September of that year, elements of Wolf's Dragoons landed on Nova Roma and easily subdued the garrison of Free Worlds Guards stationed there. Later that autumn, Duke Anton delivered an incendiary address from Nova Roma, surrounded by the smiling faces of the planet's Executive Council (who had been rounded up by bayonet for the occasion). The vidtape of this event was broadcast to Loyalist Marik forces, raising their ire. Thus, when Anton's forces regrouped on Nova Roma for their final stand, Janos's advancing armies laid waste to many farms and mines during the pursuit of the enemy.
This damage decimated Nova Roma's economy, which may not recover without outside help. However, the crisis does not concern the planet's governor, Stanton de Beer, who spends most of his time assiduously checking out every rumor of rebellion. In the meantime, the planet's Executive Council is powerless to do anything but smile at the new faces holding the same bayonets.
The Marik Civil War also provided the backdrop for the first infamous run-in between the Bounty Hunter and Natasha Kerensky. Both the Hunter and Kerensky were hunting those still loyal to Janos Marik when the Bounty Hunter turned on the Widow, leaving her for dead and claiming her Marauder, which he took over as his own signature BattleMech. Kerensky lived through the ordeal and vowed to exact vengeance (some even say she somehow got her hands on his Warhammer and began to use that as her trademark ’Mech).
