|Origin and History: |
The Chainelane Isles occupies an area roughly one hundred light years in diameter and is a collection of warring states much like the Inner Sphere. The Isles lie right in the path of the 3050 Clan Invasion, but to many it is an unknown why they seem so unaffected by the passing of the Clans.
The only states that might have been affected is the Duchy of Vendôme which analysts and Explorer Corps personnel speculate that might have fallen victim to the Clan juggernaut. It virtually disappeared right before the Clans were first detected.
According to the theory the Clans decided to test their warriors against these small states, but since the Isles military is mostly composed of conventional infantry and vehicles even a small Clan force could have wiped out the entire military of the region, analyst presume that the Clans wiped out the Duchy of Vendôme and then disgusted by the weak resistance of their opponents abandoned any desire to conquer the area.
Several warlords reported contact with and advanced race, presumably the Clans, but any chance at trade and communication has failed or was ignored. Since then Clan vessels seem to avoid the area and no more contact was reported.
