Star Wars FFG Campaign
Tatooine rises from the darkness after the whirl of hyperspace, an awesome yellow planet with two moons, gloing in the darkness. Tiny ships appear here and there, leaving or entering the desert world’s atmosphere, or lurking in orbit. – pirate vessels patiently waiting for the unwary. But traffic is thin. This may be a stopping place on a major hyperspace route, but that doesn’t make it popular.
On closer approach, the bleakness of the planet becomes more obvious. Tatooine is a dry rock in space, a world drained of moisture and baked to dust by its twin suns. The daylight side is scorched, the nigh side is frozen. But somehow, life goes on.
From orbit, it is easy to see just how harsh a landlord the desert world is. The few settlements cluster in a tight group in the planet’s temperate zone, and that’s the “garden spot”. All else is sand and rock, as far as the eye can see.
