Fellow 'Mechwarriors,

As is our tradition in the Skye Rangers, when 5,000+ Comstar HPG Link (Forum) posts are made a member becomes a Duke (or Duchess) according to our Patent of Nobility system. LT-COL Demoulius has just surpassed this mark. he has chosen New Kyoto as his Skye March Planet to rule.."until he is dead or we find someone better" :)

Some supplemental background, provided by [KM-GEN] Johan Karl Grecco-Steiner:

New Kyoto

The world posed some remarkable challenges for the first settlers trying to colonize the world. The local lifeforms are virulent and dangerous, and those plants and animals imported from off world were quickly consumed, killed by disease or otherwise destroyed by the local flora and fauna. It took years for scientists on the planet to find an opening that would allow imported lifeforms to survive, and by the thirty-first century the imported species had managed to gain a foothold on New Kyoto.[1]

New Kyoto was largely settled by Japanese expatriates, and the world became a major center of the Buddhist religion in the Lyran Commonwealth. It possesses the largest statue to Amidha Buddha in the Inner Sphere: The statue is over 110 meters tall.[3]

The industrial base on New Kyoto was initially only capable of supporting light industries, but during the era of the Star League New Kyoto was one of numerous worlds which saw increasingly large factory complexes appearing on the planet as a result of the Commonwealth's industrial base expanding.[35]

During the First Succession War the Bolson Shipyards in orbit above New Kyoto were the target of a massive assault that in February 2787[32] destroyed what had been a major naval production facility during the Star League era.[36]

A ban on exporting native New Kyoto lifeforms off world remained firmly in place as late as 3025, and while New Kyoto was reasonably free of the larger hostile life forms such as Armor Bears and Ki-rians by this point, visitors would have to have been extremely foolish to travel into any of the wild areas of the planet alone or unarmed.[1] As late as 3067 thousands of deaths a year on New Kyoto were attributed to just those two species, despite the armor bear being limited largely to the remaining woodlands on Asharu[37] and the Ki-rian being subject to massive hunting campaigns all over Kalaska as the local population tried to contain the species.[38]

The Endo family of New Kyoto was responsible for leading the Rahneshire region of the Federation of Skye during the Succession Wars, and embodied the ferocious corporate spirit and warriors for which the Rahneshire was famous throughout the Commonwealth.[39]

By 3025 several spaceports were being built on New Kyoto to boost trade with the Free Worlds League and a number of major industries had been constructed along the coastlines of the four continents dotted around New Kyoto.[1] New Kyoto was a centre of the Pure Land Sect[40] Buddhist tradition within the Commonwealth as well as being the centre of group of planets with a population largely descended from ethnically Japanese settlers. The Toshodai-ji temple on New Kyoto housed the largest sculpture of the Amida Buddha known to exist.[41] The distinctive Japanese influence on the culture of New Kyoto is such that visitors to the planet have frequently questioned whether New Kyoto was actually the subject of an extended occupation by the Draconis Combine at some point.[2]

By 3067 the Kyoto College located outside the city of Yonei on Kalasaka was at the forefront of research into myomer technologies used for both medical and military applications. Discoveries made by those studying or working at the College had led to a host of improvements and developments in a host of areas ranging from BattleMech and IndustrialMech design through to myomer-based personal armor for civil, military and governmental agencies. The College also offered a wide portfolio of programs in engineering and medicine that allowed for work experience and internships with technology and firms and hospitals throughout the Isle of Skye.[42]

In response to the recent raids and assaults on worlds within the Word of Blake Protectorate, the Blakists launch raiding parties against various worlds around the Protectorate border in early September 3076. Making use of weapons of mass destruction to augment the damage inflicting, the raiding parties - few of which were larger than a single Level III struck at the worlds of Algorab, Alnasi, Amity, Bordon, Connaught, Hunan, Kessel, New Hessen, New Kyoto, Ronel, St. Andre, Styk, Tsitsang and Wei. Of the worlds hit, the Capellan Confederation took the brunt of the fighting.

Congrats, Demo! Well earned!
