    Default Obra-skai

    Does anyone know when Obra-Skai became the great library world? Or who caused this?

    according to the Completely Unofficial Encyclopedia of Version 4.3...



    Obroa-skai
    primary planet in the Obroa-skai system, is holds a strategic position in the Borderlands. It has not aligned itself with either the Empire or the New Republic. The Obroans have created a huge repository of information from every corner of the galaxy, but its location and access methods are not given freely. Grand Admiral Thrawn raids the planet's central computer in order to determine the location of the planet Myrkr, as well as to spread the New Republic's forces thin prior to the Battle of Sluis Van. At the same time, Thrawn attacked an Elomin supply convoy that was passing near the planet. Its primary ecology is terrestrial, with vast tundras, frozen deserts, and tall mountains. Its day lasts 26 standard hours, and its years lasts 456 local days. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Obroa-skai was devastated in an unexpected from the aliens. Much of the information stored in the libraries and databases on the planet was lost, although hardcopies of certain references were smugglde out before the attack. The Yuuzhan Vong tried to decipher the information they found, but were unable to obtain accurately decrypted information.
    so i suppose it was the Obroa-skai who did it, of their own volition. could the SW version of Alexandria, the ancient world's largest library (supposedly it contained a 40 volume history of the Antideluvian World- preFlood before Alexandria burned to the ground by illiterate peasants). If it is pressing, run the planet as a massive orginization with a lot of money to track down 'library fines'... hey, that sounds like a great idea for a group of characters- they're in "Acquisitions" for the library, like an Indiana Jones group...

    No longer satisfied blowing droids apart, the cyborg Jawa ordered his very own "Little Tyke Death Star" kit from Imperial Toy Makers
