In 2781 the Star League was officially abandoned, ending a two-hundred-year-long Golden Age. The Successor Lords launched a series of massive conflicts in 2785 that would rage for centuries and become known as the Succession Wars. Such endless warfare took its toll, and by the Fourth Succession War of 3028 the technology employed on the battlefields was a mere shadow of the height of the Star League. However, the discovery of the Helm Memory Core started to unlock such sought-after secrets, with new BattleMechs and experimental technologies emerging for the first time in centuries..

Over two hundred and fifty years ago, General Aleksandr Kerensky departed human-occupied space, taking three-quarters of the Star League Defense Force with him. They returned in 3050 as the Clans: a society dedicated to the highest warrior ideals and bent on conquering the Inner Sphere. With their OmniMechs and superior technology, they proved almost unstoppable until their defeat at Tukayyid and subsequent 15 year truce. The year is now 3071, and the Jihad rages. Inner Sphere 'Mechs, hastily upgraded with field modifications to counter the Clans, continue to prove their worth. Notable pilots rise to become heroes as new, time tested variants—sporting weapons right out of R&D labs—make their presence known. And over it all, Clan OmniMechs continue to prove they are still the cutting edge of technology.

In 3055, a new breed of Inner Sphere BattleMech started rolling off assembling lines—’Mechs specifically designed to counter the Clan invasion—at the same time that secondline Clan ’Mechs began to appear. By 3067 those design have become a staple of the modern battlefield, giving rise to notable MechWarriors and new variants, while the demands of the ever-popular Solaris VII Games have resulted in a plethora of new dueling ’Mechs designed using prototype technology.

In November 3067 the Second Star League disbanded. The Word of Blake—a splinter group of ComStar—had been on the verge of joining in fulfillment of ancient prophecies. Denied their dream, the Blakists sought to preserve the Star League against the follies of the Houses, but its fanaticism manifested this noble goal as the Jihad: a horrific war that has pitted every faction against each other and even themselves. Against such an anvil, new cutting edge machines of war are marched into the fire. The discovery of an ancient Hegemony Memory Core graphically showcases the desperation of the conflict, as primitive ’Mechs not seen on a battlefield since the dawn of ’Mech production over a half millennia ago once again appear.

In December 3076, Devlin Stone marshaled the nations of the Inner Sphere and began Operation SCOUR. The two-year final push to Terra was the bloodiest fighting seen in centuries. In the end, Terra had been freed with the Word of Blake scattered to the darkest corners of the universe. Stepping into that vacuum, Stone forged a new "Terran Hegemony" in The Republic of the Sphere. With the end of the Jihad, the survivors are rebuilding their shattered armies, introducing new machines to replace those whose factories ceased to exist in the fires of the Jihad.
