Read this Planet's entry in the Traveler's Guide



"Korriban shall be as it always was. A graveyard for the darkest of the Sith Lords, still whispering within their tombs. It shall always be a source of evil, spawning threats throughout the millennia. It, like Malachor, brushes the edges of the empire that waits in the dark. And like Malachor, the Sith have forgotten it ├óÔé¼┬ª for a time. They will remember."
├óÔé¼ÔÇóDarth Traya

Korriban was the sole planet in the Horuset system, located across the galaxy from Koros Major. It was the original homeworld of the Sith species and a sacred planet for the Sith Order, housing the tombs for many ancient and powerful Dark Lords of the Sith, and containing tremendous dark side power.

After the Hundred Year Darkness, the remaining Dark Jedi interbred with the Sith species and ruled the Sith using their Force powers. After the Great Hyperspace War, Korriban was abandoned and became a barren world. It was the site of two Sith Academies, and became the headquarters of the One Sith.

Important Landmarks:

Dreshdae
Dreshdae is the capitol city, even though it is the only habituated city, and a landmark of Korriban providing a tavern called The Drunk Side with criminal activities, trade, transport docking, smuggling runs, erotic entertainment, hangouts for bounty hunters, mercenaries, assassins, and Sith trainees from the Sith Academy nearby.

Sith Academy
That which was once a sanctum for Dark Siders has become a military stronghold and bastion for the Dark Tide. Players must seek clearance before entering the facility, though once permitted to enter, they may seek training.

Valley of the Dark Lords
The Valley of the Dark Lords, also known as Valley of the Sith Lords is a valley and burial ground of Korriban's Sith Lords. The valley was used from the time of Great Schism through to the Great Hyperspace War to bury worthy Sith Lords. The tombs were built before the death of the lord, and, upon their demise, were filled with riches and slaves. Notable lords buried in the valley included Ajunta Pall, Marka Ragnos and Tulak Hord. On several occasions, dead Sith would become Force ghosts and haunt their tomb.

Current Events:
Things were not looking good for Korriban in recent times. Due to the unstable nature of the Sith Consortium, the planet had lost the ability to effectively govern itself. Seeing opportunity in this, the Mandalorian Empire attacked the Sith home world, sweeping aside its defenses in a matter of days. Even though the Mandalorian Empire drove the Sith Consortium away from Korriban, it had no interest in annexing the planet, thus leaving it deserted- it was a dead planet, just as it had been for centuries before the current age.

Just as the last of the Mandalorian fleets withdrew, new ships entered Korriban├óÔé¼Ôäós space. These ships belonged to neither the Sith Consortium, nor the Mandalorians. These ships belonged to the Dark Tide, a ruthless faction that had been making its name in the galaxy. Sent here on a mission from Darth Nexus, the Lord of Chaos, the Dark Tide saw opportunity on the surface of the dead planet. Within a week a fleet had entered the sector, followed by an armada of non-military vessels. The vessels had settlers and materials; Korriban was ordered to be repopulated and annexed into the Dark Tide├óÔé¼Ôäós empire.

Under the watchful eye of Darth Nexus, the planet has prospered and is slowly returning to its former glory.

Current Ruling Factions:
*Darth Nexus, the Dark Lord of Chaos is the ruler of Korriban. Korriban is a member of the Dark Tide├óÔé¼Ôäós empire and is under the protection of it and its allies.
