3025 – Planet Artru
Coreward Peripherary, The Aurigan Coalition
The planet Artru, is one of the most far flung inhabited worlds of the Inner Sphere. Ruled by House Camino and located on the Eastern fringe of the Aurigan Coalition bordering the Taurian Concordat, the planet had seen a great decline following Amaris coup after being abandoned by the Star League and subsequently the Taurian Concordat. Recently, the planet has seen a renaissance of education and industry under the guidance of the Camino family.
Baron Phelan Camino has spent the last 12 years of his rule enacting a series of reforms to make the planet more self sufficient granting large subsidies to education, research and farming. This has attracted some unwanted attention from Periphery raiders as well as the Taurian Concordat which has recently sent a permanent ambassador to maintain relations with the Artruian government and their former 'colony'.
While the Artruian Defense Force has grown substantially under Baron Phelan's reforms, it it is still small, even by periphery standards. Baron Camino has authorized the hiring of mercenary units to help train and bolster the planetary defense force.
