SoNE Map and Planet Bios

Recommended Posts

UPDATE!

After working with the creator of swgalaxymap.com, I have created a jpeg snapshot of his amazing map. We have been given permission to use if for SoNE. I plan to add more planets in the future, but for now you can get used to seeing the universe in more detail! And, if you want to find a specific planet, just go to the map website and find it there. The grid matches between the two maps.

BigMap4

The old map is in the spoiler:

Spoiler

I've compiled a map and a list of important planets for SoNE. I'm hoping that the map will help everyone keep things in perspective as we travel from planet to planet and I hope the bios will give people creative ideas for new builds. Obviously you can't "claim" one of these planets as your own, but you might think about expanding one through your MOCs.

Let me know if you'd like to see any other planets listed or bio'ed.

Bothawui - 250px-Bothawui_NEGAS.jpg

Located in the Mid Rim, Bothawui has three moons and is home to the Bothan species. This cosmopolitan planet has a temperate climate and its terrain consists of mountains and ridges separated by deep, wide valleys inhabited by dangerous wildlife, as well as plains, forests, and urban areas. While Bothawui is famous as a major hub for information trafficking, it also has industrial centers, grain farms, and mines. There are many different styles of buildings on Bothawui, but it’s largest population centers are known for their stone towers.

While officially a part of the Empire during the Galactic Civil War, the Imperials maintained little presence on the planet. A figure-head governor and a small contingent of stormtroopers was the only outward sign that the world was under supposedly Imperial governorship.

Both the Imperial and Rebel Alliance intelligence services apparently decided to let the planet serve as neutral ground, where they could both spy on one another with no open conflict.

Commenor - sml_gallery_38409_304_22893.jpg

Located just outside of the Core Worlds, Commenor has two moons. It is a major trading outpost and spaceport and is known for its high status and wealth. The University of Commenor is most notable point of interest though the planet does also have many notable cities, mountains, oceans, deserts, and canyons.

During the beginning of the Galactic Civil War the planet was under control of a private Imperial Citizen, Dunkler Klerus.

Corellia - 250px-Corellia_TOR_new.png

One of the Core World plantes, Corellia has three moons and is home to humans, Selonians, and Dralls. It is the capital planet of the Corellian system, which also includeds Selonia, Drall, Tralus, and Talus. Collectively, the planets of the system were known as the Five Brothers. As the largest planet and the closest to Corell, Corellia is often called the "Eldest Brother" or the "Eldest." Corellia's surface is extremely temperate, dominated by rolling, thick forests, lush farmland, crystal swamps, golden beaches, and large seas. Snow-covered mountains dominate part of the landscape and it is rumored that there are many deep underwater caverns. There is also a tunnel system developed by the Selonians that runs under most of the planet. Coellia remains largely rural and undeveloped, with small villages and farming communities comprising the bulk of urban development. This is due to its main industry being its massive orbital shipyards.

The largest cities are Coronet—the planetary capital, the tourist haven of Kor Vella, the double-city Tyrena, and the mountain hamlets of Doaba Guerfel and Bela Vistal.

With the declaration of the New Order, Diktat Dupas Thomree made a deal with Palpatine: Thomree could govern Corellian Sector as he wished (mostly free of Imperial mandates) as long as he paid taxes, war matériel, and homage to the Emperor. Diktat Dupas Thomree died in 2 BBY. He was replaced by Daclif Gallamby whom was little more than a puppet of the Imperial Governor.

Although officially under Imperial control Corellia kept its own security force known as Corellian Security Force or CorSec for short. CorSec became famous for its rigid adherence to law and order in part because of Corellia’s equally famous smugglers like Han Solo.

Following the abandonment of Massassi Station, the Rebel Alliance established a base on Corellia in 1 ABY before moving on to Hoth.

Dantooine - 250px-Dantooine-SWGMB.jpg

Located in the Raioballo sector of the Outer Rim, Dantooine has two moons and is home to the primitive Dantari race though its sentient population consisted primarily of simple Human farmers. A pleasant olive, blue, brown, and purple colored world of grasslands, savannahs, rivers and lakes, Dantooine hosts a small population spread amongst single-family settlements and small communities with large land holdings. Dantooine has several continents. There is an equatorial one that is connected to a larger northern one and a south polar one by slender land bridges, as well as a disconnected north-eastern continent. It is remote from the bustle of the galactic trade routes and the few colonists who live there maintain individual family estates largely isolated from each other. Some of the local fauna consists of spiky blba trees and ocher plains.

Felucia - 250px-Felucia_tcw.jpg

Located in the Outer Rim Territories, Felucia has two moons and is home to the tribal Felucians. A largely unsettled terrestrial jungle planet it has a hot and humid atmosphere and significant water resources beneath a surface irradiated by ultraviolet light. The planet’s surface has an almost hallucinogenic quality. The larger-than-life flora is gooily translucent and saturated with every rainbow hue in the visible spectrum. Felucia has a diversity of bizarre plants, fungi, and animals which were almost rubber-like and translucent. When the sun shines, the environment glitters like multicolored glass. Most of Felucia is entirely covered by a humid, fetid landscape of huge fungal forests including phosphorescent lichens, explosive spore shooters, toxic puffballs, and carnivorous blossoms. Felucia’s animals are even odder, often compoased of a see-through, boneless musculature that makes them resemble dollops of gelatin including native gelagrubs, immigrated acklays, and a prodigious sarlacc.

Felucia would not support large-scale colonies and any new arrivals established hard-fought, scattered settlements on the surface. These small settlements eventually developed into commercially administered cities like Kway Teow, Har Gau, Jiaozi, and Niango, pushing the native jungle-dwelling Felucians to retreat into the wilderness. Some native Felucians utilized subterranean caverns while others socialized in farming communities based around Nysillin crop.

Although the Empire later maintained a presence on the planet through the Galactic Civil War, Felucia became heavily trafficked by crime syndicates.

Fondor - 250px-Fondor.jpg

Located in the Freeworlds portion of Tapani sector, Fondor has six moons and is home to the Fondorians who were baseline Human, but with no hair and purple blood. Fondor itself was completely industrialized eons ago, and its surface scabbed with excavations, factories, cooling towers, steam tunnels, and offices. The planet also housed hectares of laborers' barracks for the dockworkers whose jobs were overhead in the shipyards. However, most of the surface factories are autonomous, controlled by great droid brains and billions of worker droids. The capital city is Fondor City.

Fondor is famous throughout the galaxy for its extensive orbital shipyards and spacedocks, outclassed only by those at Corellia and Kuat. The Fondor Shipyards were associated with the Techno Union prior to the Clone Wars, and were sufficiently vast to construct the Executor, Darth Vader's Executor-class Star Dreadnought.

Hapes - 250px-Hapes.jpg

Located in a nebula known as the Transitory Mists, Hapes is the capital of the isolationist, female-ruled Hapes Cluster and is home to the Hapans, a near human race. It is also the administrative capital of the Hapes Consortium. It is a beautiful world of lush forests, soaring mountain ranges, and impeccably clean cities and factories. Hunting is strictly regulated by the Queen Mother, as is Hapes’s robust fishing industry. Much of the surface was untouched due to the Hapan love of beauty, with Hapans preferring to stay in one of the few small, neat cities located on the planet’s surface, or Ta'a Chume'Dan, the capital city of Hapes.

The Hapans were ruled by the Queen Mother. The title of Queen Mother was hereditary, passed down from mother to daughter. If the Queen Mother failed to have daughters, the wife of the firstborn son became Queen Mother. However, to be in the line of succession meant both the Queen Mother and her heirs had to avoid constant attempts on their lives by jealous relatives who vied for the throne themselves. In addition to the Queen Mother, there were also representatives from each Consortium member planet at the Hapan Royal Court. Their main purpose was to vote on matters of importance and to give updates on any political and social conditions of their home planets that may require the Queen Mother's attention. The Queen Mother had the final say on everything, and her word was considered law. Hapan culture, at least among the upper classes, was based on assassination attempts and struggles for power. Most members of Hapan nobility or royalty would think nothing of manipulating and/or arranging the death of one of their own if it would advance their own cause. Due to the matriarchal society of the Hapes Consortium, men were often treated as second class citizens. Hapan males were used mainly for breeding and thought of as little more than an accessory. The Hapan people had a deep (some would say neurotically so) love of beauty. If a person, especially the heir to the throne, was blemished or deformed in any way, it was considered a fate worse than death.

Surrounded by shimmering nebulae, and with seven moons in the sky after sunset, Hapes never knew the darkness of true night, and the Hapan people had relatively poor night-vision. Hapes, via the Consortium, was vastly wealthy, with treasures such as rainbow gems and guns of command fetching high prices on both legal and illegal markets. Even though businesses could operate on any of the 63 member planets of the Hapes Consortium, Hapan law dictates that all major financial and business transactions must be conducted at Ta'a Chume'Dan, the capital city of Hapes.

Kuat - 250px-Eaw_Kuat.jpg

Located in the Core Worlds, Kuat has two moons and is home to a mostly human population. It is a terraformed planet of forests and plains. Early in its history rule of the planet fell to the Ten, a consortium of the richest merchant families. The Ten were the ones who terraformed Kuat’s surface into terraced parkland and built the orbital rings that give the system some of its fame.

It is best known as the home of Kuat Drive Yards. These famous shipyards, used to build ships for both the Galactic Republic and later the Galactic Empire, circled the planet for thousands of kilometers. The Kuati have a matriarchal society with four castes: the elite aristocracy; the wealthy middle class; the (native) working class; and the lowly off-world laborers. These divisions led to peculiar bredding quirks including the telbun – a physically perfect male specimen offered by a merchant family to the father the offspring of a female aristocrat, yet possessing none of the rights of the father.

Mon Calamari / Dac - 250px-Mon_Calamari.jpg

Located in the Outer Rim, the aquatic planet Mon Calamari has one moon and is home to a wealth of sentient species: the Mon Calamari, the Quarren, the Moappa, the Amphi-Hydrus, and the Whaladons. The native species referr to the planet as Dac while the non-indigenous refer to it as Mon Calamari or Mon Cala. The oceans of Mon Calamari contain a massive biodiversity of aquatic creatures. Only island chains break the surface of the shallow oceans, with most of the 27.5 billion inhabitants living in floating megalopolises or pressurized bases on the seafloor. The planet is surrounded by the impressive Mon Calamari Shipyards.

Sullust - sml_gallery_38409_304_298229.png

Sullust is located in the Outer Rim Territories. It is the homeworld of the Sullustans and headquarters of the galaxy-spanning SoroSuub Corporation.

All of Sullust is composed of multicolored rock, veined by lava channels. The world is volatile with hundreds of active volcanoes, producing a noxious, toxic atmosphere and intense electrical storms. These conditions, combined with the planet's rich mineral deposits, cause the native Sullustan inhabitants to live in underground caves. The underground caves are humid and cool, with a diverse biosphere supported by underground lakes. The planet was once known for its podraces.

Ord Mantell - 250px-Ord_Mantell_TOR_new.png

Located in the Bright Jewel Cluster in the Mid Rim, Ord Mantell has two large moons and thirteen other satellites orbiting the planet. This collection of natural wonders made Ord Mantell something of a tourist attraction, despite its seedier side. It was also the homeworld of the Mantellian Savrips and Mantellian flutterplumes, whose sentience was largely unnoticed or ignored. Mountains and islands are the distinct features of Ord Mantell's terrain. Almost every land mass on the planet is dotted with mountain chains. Its population is clustered on the arid equatorial continents amid low mesas and flat plains. Coastal cities, including the capital Worlport, are glittering baubles that entice visitors to drop their money at casino tables. The urban outskirts are far less glamorous, with junkyards that stretch for hundreds of kilometers and strip mines that gush oily smoke. Ord Mantell's continent boasts a sprawl of cities along its southern shore and it is this part of Ord Mantell that many spacers regarded as a safeport, famous for casinos and for tourists, of which it attracted almost one billion annually. Other metropolitan areas lacked address markings and were considered not intended for outsiders. The thinking behind this was that if you don't know where you're going, then you don't belong here. Outside of the urban sprawl, the narrow equatorial band of starports and the volcanic islands, Ord Mantell remained largely rural and low tech. Its extreme reliance on fossil fuels kept the planet quite barren, huge robotic coal yards remained to fuel the planet's cities and an immense junkyard littered a large portion of the planetscape

Ord Mantell lost its strategic significance over time due to the expansion of new trade routes, but the presence of military-quality starship yards and docks brought a thriving civilian cargo trade to the world. Eventually it became a haven for mercenaries, exiles, murderers and smugglers.

Ord Mantell’s non-native population comprises a true melting pot, with Rodians, Rybets, Devaronians, Arconans, humans, and a thousand other species intermingling, and no group numbering more than five percent of the population.

Ring of Kafrene – kafrene.jpg

 

Located in the galaxy's Expansion Region between Takodana and the Corellian Trade Spine, the Ring of Kafrene is an asteroid belt in which a great mining colony was constructed in the days of the Old Republic. During the civil war, it is controlled by the Galactic Empire and home to a great number of different beings, looking to make a living under difficult circumstances.

The Empire's grip around the system is tight, but the sheer amount of ragtag individuals crowding the streets of the colony makes it hard for authorities to keep a close eye on shady business being conducted in the back alleys. One can stumble upon a lot of useful information in this colony if asking the right questions – and quickly be silenced if asking the wrong ones.

(Taken from http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ring_of_Kafrene, http://www.swgalaxymap.com/ and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story )

Eadu -

It has stormy weather conditions and is home to the Imperial Kyber Refinery. Perhaps the planet's natural resources offer kyber crystals as well?

Wobani -

Imperial prisoners are brought here and it looks like it uses old war gear from the clone wars as well, allowing players to mix PT-styled builds into their creations for this planet. It practically begs to display imprisonment, escape and rescue scenarios going on between Imperials and Rebels.

Scarif -

After the utter annihilation of the Imperial data archives and the planetary shields were destroyed, the Empire probably gave up on the planet, military-wise and had their fleet move out from the sector, which makes this even battle ground for both parties. Even though a part of the planet's surface has been devastated, the rest is still intact and probably inhabited.

Jedha -

I think there's enough evidence to speculate things go on outside the city from Saw's whole underground network. The alliance regarded him and his forces as a terrorist army. Who knows, what or who else is outside that city? Tunnel Networks, smugglers, Guavian Death Gang, Kanjiklub? It is the imagination's limit until more (if any) source material comes out. 

Lah'mu -

This was covered a little bit in the book prequel too. Though barren, you did draw the parallel to Tatooine. Plus Again, Saw had something to do with picking the location. Could be more rebels in hiding. Personally, I found the planet fascinating.

That looks good! A lot of effort went into that, if I'm not mistaken. Did not read it all yet though ;)

I think this can be quite useful to people!

Some tips:

Are all planets available to build for us, and are none missing?

The map looks just a bit boring, I'm sorry to say that if you made it all yourself.

You did not copy-paste from sites I hope, right? If not, great work!

There is still some irrelevant information there

How about a table with general information under each planet (e.g. Size, population, terrain, moons)

Mon Calamari is a species, Mon Cala is the name of the planet. This was quite recently changed by lucasarts

Usually the source of information is mentioned at the very end. While this is not a strict rule, it is more enjoyable to read, although that is a matter of what one prefers.

More to come I think :)

Great work, it would be nice to have a picture of the planet up close but it is still really good.

Thanks for putting so much thought into this in such a short time. Let me address each thing one by one.

First: I talked a lot with the SoNE leaders before posting this. While we are currently still only allowed to build on certain planets, that rule might be changed. Even if it isn't, the bios give each builder a broader idea of the Star Wars universe. Though, my idea of fleshing out certain planets will have to change if that's the case :grin:

Second: The map is supposed to be simple. I studied a bunch of official maps as I worked on this and they were, for the most part, extremely complex. A simple map allows those not familiar with the SW universe to get a broad overview quickly without having to wade through lots of details that may not be important to them. I intended to add to the map as needed so please let me know if there is something missing you would like to see.

Third: All of the information comes straight from the sources I cited. While it is not copy-and-pasted word for word, none of the information is my own. I simply modified the information and in some casings used the exacting wording for certain sentences.

Fourth: I included all the information I though may be relevant. Since I only consulted myself on what I thought would be relevant, I'm not surprised that some of it doesn't seem useful. May I ask though, which parts do you find irrelevant?

Fifth: Wookiepedia is probably a better source for the tables you asked for. I included information on the terrain for each planet. If someone wants to go more in depth there are more comprehensive guides out there. This is only meant to get the imagination juices flowing for MOCs, it's not meant to be a comprehensive guide.

Sixth: I mentioned that Mon Cala is one of the names for the planet in the bio. There are many different views on what the planet should properly be called. I picked the one that's been around the longest.

Seventh: I included the source information at the end of each planet's bio because the sources changed for each. And I don't think the forum allows for foot notes :wink:

Also, this probably doesn't have any use but maybe add locations of different regions like the Maw ( I think that's what it was)

Alright everyone, the map has been updated a little. I've added a couple regions of space like Bothan and Hutt as well as one of the minor hyperspace lanes that my character will be using in the next freebuild :grin: . If anyone would like me to map out a route for their character's story please let me know and I can make the additions as requested.

Tatooine and Nar Eurbrikka are missing. Or are they too obvious to be in the list and this is meant more for special planets not everyone is aware of?

It's true that their bios are missing, but they are both on the map. The bios list was meant for the lesser known planets.

Mustafar is missing

That's a good planet to add.

Some of you are probably aware that the canonical Sith planet is now called "Moraband", since there was a completely dumb and unnessecary Yoda story line in TCW, that now sadly counts more than decades of awesome EU stuff like KotOR. I just deny it. For me, that planet will always be KORRIBAN.

So please, Josh, secure us that planet at least in this game by adding it to the index by its old name.

I've updated the map. It'll take some time before I have any bios ready. Here are the planets added:

Lothal

Jakku

Takodana

Mustafar

Utapau

Kamino

Korriban

Rodia

Ithor

Duro

Ryloth

Onderon

Keep in mind no one knows where Lothal is really located. I placed it where most people are guessing it to be. If anyone wanted to write bios about these planets as well as Kashyyyk, Tatooine, and Nar Eurbrikka I wouldn't complain :grin:

as we get more planets through Rebels, what about a rotating planet/alien combination on the BH game so we can get more diverse builds? it might even encourage somebody to build during a certain month b/c they really want to build for a specific combination available at that time.

That is a very interesting idea! What kind of rotation do you have in mind?
