Description:

An arid, windy, and nearly barren world, the only surface water on Shiloh takes the form of numerous scattered seas, lakes, and interconnecting rivers. Together with its lack of resources, the climate of this world would have left it uninhabited had it not attracted the notice of the Exituri. The Exituri, a secretive, religious sect that blends elements from faiths as diverse as Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, and even Paganism, left Terra early in the Exodus for ideological reasons. Settling on Shiloh, the Exituri quickly established a theocratic society, based on their precepts, known collectively as the Bhagavad-Gita.

Shiloh became part of the Lyran Commonwealth’s Federation of Skye in the years leading up to the formation of the original Star League, but took little active role in interplanetary politics. The planet’s small population supported itself as best as possible, though their religious tenets limited them to using the most primitive means for farming and industry, while trade was limited to the export of local handcrafts in exchange for water. After the fall of the Star League and the beginnings of the Succession Wars, however, Shiloh became a target for frequent raids and invasions between Houses Steiner and Marik, eventually falling to the Free Worlds League in 2917.

During the centuries of Succession Wars, the Exituri leadership exerted near complete control over the world, despite numerous rebellions against the hard-liners of the government. At this time, the Exituri leadership of Shiloh preached often of the evils of advanced technology. They proclaimed that their Divinity no longer recognized mankind as a result of his increasing dependence on the tools of science and warfare, and they further condemned the Great Houses of the Inner Sphere, not just for the Succession Wars, but for all the tragedies of the human race.

The capital city of Shiloh is Randersville, and it is located on the north shore of Blessed Lake, in the northern hemisphere.
