Tatooine was first discovered by the Republic in 5,000 BBY but before that, space battles had already occurred near and over the planet. Unfortunately the Republic had unintendedly disturbed the Ghorfa’s water harvest, this caused them to evolve into the Sand People. Not long after, the Republic was forced to abandon the planet and it was resettled over and over by various forgotten governments. 800 years later, the first colony named Anchorhead was established by an unnamed authority. Over many years, the settlement was abandoned and recolonized over and over by more unknown governments. The name Tatooine was coined from the Jawa name for the planet, Tah-doo-Een-e.
The planet was represented in the Galactic Senate by Sidrona Diath. During the Great Hunt, the planet was cleansed of terentatek by the Jedi.
Although Tatooine was deemed not worth conquering by the Mandalorians during the Mandalorian Wars, a group of Mandalorian exiles settled on Tatooine after the war, although their fate was never known.
At the time of the Jedi Civil War, the planet was practically controlled by the Czerka Corporation. They were attempting to mine ores from Tatooine, although they soon discovered the ores had strange magnetic properties which made the metal corrode very fast and thus useless for production.
Czerka’s mining involvement in the Anchorhead settlement proved fruitless, and the company began Czerka’s Secret Weapons division on the planet, due to no restrictions from the Republic. Czerka completely pulled out of Anchorhead, abandoning the Secret Weapons complex. This left the planet populated by dissidents and criminals, though the Republic still used the planet for a supply stop. The Sith Empire also set up a small outpost near Anchorhead in an effort to discover the secrets of the Czerka Secret Weapons division.
Places of note.
Czerka pulled out of Tatooine last year, leaving it’s mining operation and Secret Weapon Division. Anchorhead, the only major offworld Settlement currently on Tatooine, was left to those who couldn’t follow suit. Anchorhead is a haven for those who operate outside the law of the republic. this isn’t to say that there aren’t reputable people who occasionally come to the settlement, simply that the Reputable don’t usually survive long.
- Travellers Pass
The only major Cantina in Anchorhead. Travellers pass is so called because rarely do people stay long. some move on to other planets, some are plying a trade as a moisture farmer out in the desert either way, only a rare few individuals come to Travellers pass consistently. The owner, A Duros named Plono, has a no weapon policy that is usually ignored on a daily basis. several barfights normally break out within a day, so timing your visits is usually a difficult thing to achieve.
- Shivadee’s Shop
Shivadee’s Shop is the only shop in Anchorhead. She buys absolutely anything and everything, and even has a few goods to sell.
Located near Anchorhead, this town was restored by industrious Jawa. Mos Ila boasts a small spaceport, making the settlement ideal as a base from which the Empire can explore the abandoned Czerka Corporation weapons labs; Imperial forces claimed the town, displacing the Jawa that had made it their own.
This large area was once the bed of an inland sea. Extreme temperatures and lack of water made the area inhospitable to most lifeforms. A Human could dehydrate after about thirty minutes from overexposure. The Dune Sea is Rarely travelled lightly. Water prospectors, Jawas and Sand people are the only sentients who venture out into the desert, except for those who have real reason to go there.
The Jundland Wastes were a dry, hot, and rocky region that was located on the desert world of Tatooine. This remote area largely consists of a number of canyons that wind their way around a number of large mesas and is situated near the Dune Sea.
