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..
