Emboldened by their new awareness, suc ind viduals seek out others who have had similar experiences sionly uniting into a loose coalition. Meanwhile, the Galactic Empire uses soft and hard methods to suppress their dia logue. Most beings know of the Empire's hard methods of arrest and extermination, but most underestimate the pow ter of soft methods, Propaganca pushes individuals to daubt their experiences, to not question their new awareness, and to believe in the supremacy of tre Empire. This propaganda sometimes reinforces cultural elaments that bolster a spe inst the Force, suchas the Muun species’ sense ‘of superiority and rationality. Unformity threatens the Force, especialy the Empires version ol uniformity ach species brings anew perspective on the Force based con ts own cultural experiences. Each incvidual contributes yetanother perspective, sometimes one parallel with cultura Moon Pantoran views, sometimes perpendicular to them or completely outside the cultural norm, always layered with inteligence and nuance. With milions or even bllons of people on 2 single plane, to assure that all of those individuas think the same way about the Force is myopic and foolish ne hundreds upon hundreds of species throughout the alaxy don't fragment the Force; they instead provide new ‘meanings, new ideas, and new constructs to understand this powerful, ever-present energy.

There are many other subspe- cles, and rumors of genetic manipulation abound, but no ‘ulsider has venfied these claims. The Gand find questions about thelr physlology perplexing anda ite embarrassing (On average, Gand stand a litle over one-and-a-half meters tall have three fingers an each hand, and have large compound eyes capable of sensitive night vision. Their skin Color range from brown to green to purple, Due ta thei ge ic diversity, many Gand possesses characteristics that fom the norm, including heads of urusual shapes and al Fingers, and multiple versions of internal sans.

For example, early academic records suggest the Gand had a monarchy. However, no such cur rertly lineage exists, and the Gand don't appear to have 8 word for queen or king. Whether the records detailed an offshoot colony, the Gand evolved anay from a monarch cal government, or the original academic mistakenly ati ted hve insect characteristics to the species, only they have no interest in the topic 0 the visitors ‘academics call Gand society meritocratic. While the Gand value individual achievement, they don't believe it superior to communal achievement, simpy diferent. For ‘ample, indvidual Gand have no fst name unt acrieving something notable. However, there is no shame in only a ing a surname. After all, a Society requires th ion of the unnamed cemics believe ming notable. and thus more individual. separates 4 Gand from the community, resulting in a philosophical Crisis for that individual. Again, only non-Gand project any connotation onto this change in status. Yo Gand, individuality is necessary and natural, both alss and again, ‘and a process that's simultaneously complex anc simple. Gand refer to themselves as “this Gand” up until they bed sd members of society. At that point, they refer to themselves by ther surname.

Others believe the Gand explain nemselves in vague and contradictory terms to prevent cultural disruption, A few academics suggest the misinformation is @ deliberate cultural prank—an example of Gand humo Homeworld: The rocky Outer Rim planet Gand, located in the Shadola sector of the Slice, has an atmosphere of thick ‘ammonia mists that is texic to most oxygen-breathing life forms.

The Cand designed the stations for the comfort of ofworiders so they can wander about feely wile the Gand wear beating apparatuses. A few privleged offworiders have been given permission to set foot on Gand soil, but only in the allen quarters at snaceports. As the ammonia mists are usually thick and dangerous, the majority of ofhworiders donot pro test this arrangement. Language: The language of Gand is spoken with drones and clicks that non-Gand find dificult to emulate. Likewise, most Cand struggle to produce the sounds for Basic, and so they depend on translator modules or droids. The particulars of the Gand language means translations often sound simplistic ‘or ‘childlike adding to the perception that Gand are uncom: plicated and humble Gand who travel offworld make dedicated efforts to learn other languages (mostly to avoid embarrassing. misun- derstandings).

While Muun culture as a whole is conservative and rigid, the personal beliefs of individual Muun vary wildly, especially among those who travel the galaxy and mingle with other species. The Muun fee the same passions as any other species when facing moral and ethical decisions, ft ing fr survival or being influenced by the Force. Physiology: The humanoid Muun stand nearly two meters tall on average. Compared to humans, they have elongated heads and a sim build, giving them a gaunt look. Their skin tone falls on the paler end ofthe spectrum, usually appearing, white, pink, or gray. Their Features—a small nose, mouth, ‘and ears—are subtle, Due to their three-neart circulatory system, the Muun have a robust constitution and can often lve about a century.

Pos- sestinga strong grounding in mathemati, logic, and sclence, the Muun have a reputation for intligence and rationality. However, their history shows that they fave some their awn harmful nd dangerous biases, rooted in thelr pride and ego. Society: The traditionalist and conservative Muun believe their society a mertocracy in which the inteligent rise up through the ranks. Muun culture praises business and eco: homies as the most intellectual and practical of pursuits ‘Those who don't join the IGBC usualy start their awn cor poration. Nevertheless since the Banking Clan fs such a massive and pervasive entity ts dificlt to know where it begins and where Mun sacety ends The interGalactic Banking Clan and thus the Muun people, remained neutral in galactic potics throughout the Republic era to keep the economy stable. Muun intemal politics tend tobe similarly neutral and supportive of the status quo. Tis attitude has trickled down to ineividual Muun, who consider ‘neutrality the highest fom of poltical practice. n fact. most Muun believe they shouldn't concer themselves with the Galactic Civil War, an apathy that the Empire encourages, However, this conflict diflers from others in thatthe Empire naw controls the IGBC, (On the other hand, Imperial control over the Banking Clan and the soft occupation of Muun worlds have caused an increase in radicalized Muun, who reject the ideal of neu tralty as a societal detaut. This new miltancy is tempered by their conservative background. Rather than partic pate in outright violence or public protests, these budding Activists engage in economic and corporate crimes, such aS ‘embezzlement and speculation, to siphon funds from Impe- rial accounts and cisrupt Imperial businesses on Scipio. A few take these funds to fill Rebel treasuries, knowing that if the Rebelion succeeds, the Muun can become truly independent again, These brave few face myriad challenges: their peers’ conservatism, their own doubts over their intr ition and emotions about ther homeworld, and the Empire's ‘consistent message that a strong Muun sa compiant Mun, UNDER THE EMPEROR'S BOOT |: oar eats esta reac geen ar ce ce ese eee Pretec eee ere me ing, For the rest of the known galaxy, the credit ere eee Pre ete re raie corporation.

These superheavy pistols were {developed in response to requests from bounty hunters and law enforcement agencies or a powerful, pisto-sized weapon for use in taking down partcuarly dangerous opponents. ‘To meet the demand, BlasTech turned to one of its most popular and well-respected product lines and developed the 'BR-219 from its E-11 series of military blaster rifles, Using the €-11's receiver and firing mechanism, BlasTech engineers then reengineered the XCiter and actuating mod le to produce an overcharged bolt, equipped the drastically shortened barrel with an improved Galen pattern, and de- veloped a special and highly volatile blend of blaster gases to feed their new weapon.

Given thatthe crystals rarely form at fewer than five hundred metersbbeiow the surface, an usual ly at over twice that depth, tne formations can be extremely dificult to lacate. However, the raw crystals echo any nearby sound with a humming resonance, guiding searchers who draw near. Harvested etaan crystals retain this resonant property, causing tne activated blades of asabers using them to thrum in harmony with the motions of the blade, and to chime at nearby sounds. The blades respond especially spectacularly toa clash with another lightsaber or a blaster bolt, emitting a near-deafening crack and a bright flare of energies. A clash of blades invohing etaan crystals usually results inthe lghtsabers being forced apart, but reflected blaster bolts draw in the resonant energies from the reaction {and intensty on their new trajectory.
