The camp quickly grew, more smugglers joined them, and by 1, BBY , it was a thriving township. There was sand everywhere, and past the sand there were mountains. Past the mountains continued even more sand. The smugglers had ran out of fuel and were forced to land on the barren world. They searched for any signs of intelligent life for months, but found none. The constant sandstorms and atmospheric disturbances would not allow them to send any transmissions.

Canon astrography[ edit ] The Star Wars galaxy contains several broad sub-regions. Their exact definitions fluctuated somewhat during the Legends continuity, but were later formally updated by the new Canon continuity when Disney purchased Lucasfilm. The new Canon map is broadly similar to the later versions of the Legends galactic map. The first major interstellar powers in the core are stated to have risen many millennia ago, gradually coalescing into the early Galactic Republic, with its capital at Coruscant.
Worlds of the Outer Rim are rich in raw resources but lack the population, infrastructure, or political power of the Core. Major galactic sub-regions are further divided into quadrants, sectors, etc. The galaxy has at least two companion-satellite dwarf galaxies , one of which is known as the Rishi Maze, but they are very lightly settled or explored.
The Canon map depicts a top-down view of the galactic disk, with "north" as the side of the galactic center that Coruscant is located on. As the capital planet of the Republic and later the Empire, Coruscant is used as the reference point for galactic astronomy, set at XYZ coordinates According to the updated Visual Dictionary series made by Pablo Hidalgo for the Sequel Trilogy, these are the general regions of the galaxy spreading outward from the Core: Deep Core — the innermost brightly lit region of space, with a supermassive black hole at the center which binds the galaxy together.
Densely-packed with stars, nebulae, and other anomalies, it is therefore thinly settled due to the resulting high radiation levels and lack of stable hyperspace routes. Core Worlds — powerful and wealthy planets with millennia-long histories, many of them founding members of the Galactic Republic.
The Colonies — the first colonies founded by the nascent Galactic Republic in ancient times. Mentioned by name in The Rise of Skywalker. Inner Rim — the original edge of the Galactic Republic, where expansion waves stopped for many generations.
Expansion Region — nestled between the "Inner Rim" and the "Mid Rim", anachronistically named due to a new colonization wave starting again. Mid-Rim — Generally industrialized though not very important planets, but more developed than the true "frontier" in the Outer Rim.
On-screen examples include Naboo and Kashyyyk. As the last region that the Republic expanded into, it is relatively the least developed, a frontier more often than not exploited by the central galactic government for its resources.
More broadly, Attack of the Clones established that the Star Wars galaxy actually possesses at least three small satellite galaxies, never colonized and considered largely inhospitable. The secret cloner-world Kamino, however, is located in one of these minor galactic clusters beyond the Outer Rim. Unknown Regions — the new Canon map establishes that, due to the stability of hyperspace lanes, inhabited planets are weighted toward the "eastern" quadrant of the galactic plane with the "western" one being mostly unexplored.
Western Reaches — the sectors once controlled by the Republic that border the Unknown Regions of the galactic "west". Apart from these broad regions radiating out from the galactic core, there are also several major galactic sub-regions of note: Mandalorian space — technically located in the Outer Rim, but relatively close to the border with the Mid-Rim, near Kashyyyk, in the galactic "northeast".
The planet Mandalore had its own regional space empire in ancient times, led by their formidable warrior culture. The Mandalorians were the most difficult enemies the Jedi ever faced short of the Sith: they were not Force-wielders, but were a culture of regular humans who had honed themselves to possess the pinnacle of combat training, equipment, and battle tactics.
During a series of long wars with the Republic, however, many centuries before the Clone Wars, the Jedi were eventually able to fight them into submission - though with heavy losses.
In the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series, both the Republic and the Separatists compete for support from rival Mandalorian factions, and in the later Star Wars: Rebels animated series, Mandalorians again divide into a proxy war between pro-Imperial and pro-Rebel forces.
According to The Mandalorian TV series, this eventually resulted in the devastation of Mandalorian space by the Empire, with surviving enclaves scattering across the Outer Rim. Hutt Space — a fairly large swath of space along the "eastern" quadrant of the galactic plane , loosely straddling the border between the Mid-Rim and Outer-Rim. The Hutts are a kleptocratic Mafia state , derided as "gangsters" composed of several rival clans.

The game was streamlined to be easier to play and a greater emphasis was placed on miniatures. Characters then roll a hit die for additional hit points as they progress in level. Characters also have a Condition Track which measures how much they are currently impaired. If Damage from a single attack exceeds the damage threshold, the PC is moved down the condition track.
