Description:

Many Clan Goliath Scorpion industrial facilities dot the planet of Roche. The violent storms scour the surface of Roche are a constant concern in detecting bandits or other forces that might land to wreak havoc, so Scorpion units from Rho Galaxy frequently patrol the dusty wastes that cover much of their capital planet.

A massive duststorm that recently wrecked much of the Barrier Dunes and forced the temporary shutdown of Roche QuadPlex Alpha also appears to have uncovered a previously unknown Brian Cache in the southern wastes, prompting a number of Rho Galaxy's warriors to apply for Seeker rights to the site.

Roche was once the capital of Clan Widowmaker, whose military headquarters was the massive fortress of Spiderholm. After the Widowmakers' Absorption in 2834, Clan Wolf ceded much of the Widowmakers' enclave, including Spiderholm, to Clan Goliath Scorpion in acknowledgement of the aid given to them during the Trial.

Roche is also the site of the Scorpion’s vast underground museum, containing many relics from the Star League-era. The Scorpion’s Gamma Galaxy – known as the Cave Dwellers – have the dual role as protector’s of the museum and the Clan’s ancestral tombs on Strana Mechty.

One of the museum's most recent exhibits was the gift of a Mackie BattleMech from Wolf Galaxy Commander Katya Kerensky. This ancient, but lovingly restored machine, was acquired from a Rasalhagian military museum during Operation Revival. An ancient Star League ‘Mech simulator has become the museum’s latest acquisition, discovered by Star Colonel Kelton of Beta Galaxy, whilst on a necrosia-inspired quest. Though the firmware of the machine is often erratic, it has become the showpiece of the museum.
