Title: What happened to Savannah?
Post by: Nav_Alpha on 06 August 2013, 08:00:47
Hi guys,

So Technicron Manufacturing has a site on Savannah that produces Quickdraws and Awesomes, right? Except the plant doesn't appear in Objectives: FWL (set in 3079).
According to that document, there's nothing being made on Savannah. From memory, to Ride the Chimera mentions Savannah making mechs once again after the Jihad, but from memory Savannah never gets hit by Blakists - only Free World's forces in an effort to reign the planet's independence back in.

sooo... just wondering if the powers that be could clarify if the Technicron Manufacturing plant was destroyed during the Jihad or not? And if so, I presume by the FWL?

Sorry if this is a mildly pedantic question - just curious

After the Jihad it was absorbed into the Republic of the Sphere and would not be covered in Objectives: FWL (or any Objectives for that matter).

Actually, not correct. It was still in the FWL in 3079, and as such if it had any working industry it would have been covered there.
Savannah attempted to declare independence in 3071, but was savagely suppressed by a WoB/Marik force in 3074, which put Technicron Manufacturing offline. It was further damaged during the Bloody Tricentenial and when the Republic forcefully annexed the world in 3080ish.

As such it was not operational in 3079, and hence was not included in Objectives: FWL.

Pretty much what I figured - thanks a lot for the prompt response
