#[3025] Styk is the ducal holding of Maximillian Liao's commander-in-chief, Duke Pavel Ridzik. It is the second
largest trading and industrial center in the Confederation and the largest interstellar trading planet. The third largest
BattleMech production center surviving in the Confederation is also located on Styk. Troops of Warrior House
Fujita have recently been added to Styk's sizable AeroSpace and naval reserve units.

The capital city of Styk is Charon, but it's industrial heart is Tao City, built around the Tao MechWorks. No
match for the annual output of Earthwerks' Tikonov facilities, Tao MechWorks and its affiliated industries still
account for more than 20% of the Capellan Confederation's industrial output and employ over 5% of the planet's
population. The majority of the population live in several large cities located on the planet's nine continents. These
landmasses cover 22% of Styk's surface; saltwater oceans cover the rest.

[3132] Colonized in the late 22nd century, Styk would one day rise up to become the second-largest trading and
industrial center in the Confederation. Styk is also home to Tao MechWorks, once the third-largest BattleMech
production center in the Confederation.

Styk is a heavily industrialized world composed of nine continents. These landmasses cover 22 percent of Styk’s
surface; saltwater oceans cover the rest. Styk’s continents were named after the original explorers who found the
planet. The largest continent is Burtnik, where the planetary capital, Lorelei, is located. Just outside of Lorelei is
Tao MechWorks and one of the planet’s largest military and commercial DropPorts. The remaining continents of
Deyoung, Shaw, Young, Curulewski, Gowan, Panozzo North, Panozzo South, and Sucherman are heavily
industrialized and each have their own DropPorts. One well-kept secret is Styk’s ocean liners. Styk has a fleet of
luxury liners that sail the vast oceans from port to port.

In late December of 3067, the Jihad came to Styk. Though the defenders were resourceful and devout to their
world, they were all but annihilated by the Blakists’ chemical weapons. The capital was the hardest hit of all the
major cities. Ninety percent of the population was killed in the last stand. When the capital fell, all resistance
ceased and Styk surrendered. Half the planet’s population lay dead as the result of Styk’s resistance to the
invaders’ determination to take the planet.

Today Styk is attempting to rebuild under The Republic, but centuries will need to pass before the scars finally

[3132] Styk was originally part of the Capellan Confederation until the creation of The Republic. Styk became
part of Prefecture V under the control of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was
created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
[3135] Styk was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Styk became part of the Capellan Confederation, House Liao.
