Star Wars: Dark Oblivion
The Tyne Sector
Several planets in this sector have industries with a relationship with the Nebula. When stars go supernova they have an abundance of heavier elements within them. As planets are formed from this space debris, they contain many of these materials. Those that don’t form planetary systems become valuable clouds, and have become staging grounds to mine the Nebula.
The Tyne Sector is looked at as a younger sibling by most of the people of Trax Sector. They have growing industries and businesses, but there are quite a few Rebel sympathies here. During the Clone Wars, several of the systems joined the Separatists, causing the fight to be brought here. As a result, these planets have had to pay restitutions to the Trax Sector, since it was their resources used and destroyed during the war. These payments have only recently been rescinded.
DRUNOST is home to one of the largest hubs of Consolidated Shipping, a transport business, as well as many corporate offices. The hub, located near Drunost’s main settlement, Conso City, makes the planet a popular stop for fueling and supplies.
While Drunost’s terrain includes rivers and woods, the land is mainly used for farming and mining, although the planet supports company towns as well
GAP NINE is a backwater swamp world home to an Imperial fuel ore processing plant. The facilities are built on huge tracts of artificial land, surrounded by force fencing. Very few of the indigenous species have managed to survive the byproducts of the plant.
Many centuries ago, an unknown group came to Gap Nine and built temples, then disappeared. Republic scholars were unable to determine the source of the temples and left them. Instead, they became popular tourist attractions.
JAVIN is a rugged, mountainous world, which attracts many tourists for its beauty rather than its resources. It is known for its arts, music and holographic entertainment.
However, when Moff Julk took over the Cluster, he immediately began to crack down on the arts on Javin, employing Imperial Censors. They will destroy any seditious works, and attach a red warning label on anything which might be considered harmful to the interests of the Empire. Drawing a “Scarlet” is one of the surest ways of measuring success among the artists of Javin.
ORIN is a largely agricultural world, considered the breadbasket for the entire Cluster producing nearly 10% of the food for the Imperial military. Its major crop was muja fruit; Orin berries were also produced there. Orin’s seas and oceans were teeming with fish and were almost as productive as its agricultural fields.
During the Clone Wars, there were many battles fought on Orin. Lying on a major shipping lane, Orin was of great strategic importance during the war, making it an important staging ground for both sides. Taking it was a key to winning the Sector, and became the turning point for the conflict. The war devastated Reytha Valley. Twenty years later, the valley is still blackened and charred by the fire storm that swept through it.
PODERIS is a densely forested world. One of Poderis’ primary exports is apocia hardwood, which takes two centuries to mature and is used in the making of luxury furniture.
A recent infestation of greddleback termites caused the economy of the planet to go under. Imperial Moff Julk declared the planet a disaster world, and helped bring Imperial funds to the planet in an effort to restore the apocia.
THYFERRA is a hot, humid planet on which most of the galaxy’s Bacta is produced. It is also a major political power as Bacta production is an essential commodity. Bacta has replaced most conventional medicine due to its long history of use throughout the galaxy.
Thyferra is almost completely controlled by two Human-run corporations: Zaltin and Xucphra. These two corporations were chosen by Emperor Palpatine to supply the Empire’s bacta, thus eliminating any real competition in the bacta market.
