Brief History – Dainmar Majoris was settled in one of the first waves of colonization, its relative habitability was just another of those stellar diamonds in the rough. The problem was that the planet had very little expansion potential, the land wasn’t particularly fertile and required constant investment to maintain a large population. Its current population has spent many generations investing large portions of their fortunes into improving it and recently it has begun paying off.
They managed to evade most of the warfare and piracy due to their low profile and lack of heavy industry. Their proximity to the New Colony Region led to massive investments in their agricultural economy to supplement artisan farms and support the marginal worlds in The Fronc Reach. The current Countess has utilized these profits to establish some basic industry and modernize the old Star League era infrastructure.
In 3030 the Durachi House Ferenz died in a dropship accident except for Clara Ferenz who forfeited her title and entrusted her fortune to the Magdalean Church. Their longtime allies the Deepwater Familiy appealed to Kyalla Centrella to take over administration of Dainmar Majoris and were granted it along with a Durachi patent. During this time the Margaret Ferenz IVS and spinoff Dainmar Agritech began a massive project to engineer a perfect horse specimen seeing a potential market in the Inner Sphere. The Deepwater family also expanded the planet’s artisan farm market to sell large quantities of dairy products to Luxen and Dunianshire.
When the Treaty of Taurus was signed in 3056 Kalisandra Deepwater financed a massive increase in the size of the Magistracy Development Corps which had been eroding away under the reign of Kyalla Centrella and was under the radar for Emma. It was a risky gambit but the increase in the MDC manpower and transport assets allowed the Canopians to jump start the New Colony Region with Concordat cooperation. The bet has paid off and Dainmar Majoris still remains the MDC’s central logistics hub and a frequent recipient of transports from the area.
COMSTAR lost their administrative contract with the Deepwater family after the schism, the Word of Blake has held the HPG contract exclusively since it was an independent entity making it the oldest Blake property in the Magistracy. In 3065 they completed the upgrade for the HPG located on Endrick’s Stone to a Class B. The Majesty Mining and Metals company has established a production facility for combat vehicles north of Camp Rawhide in the Red River province.
