Considered the "Jewel of Naboo" and the loveliest building

1n Theed. Naboo's Royal Palace is a tour de force of Naboo
classical architecture. Constructed in 832 BBY by the people
of the newly founded city of Theed under the direction of

King Jafan, the palace sits astride the Solleu River where it
plunges over the Cliffs of Theed. It is a sprawling, baroque
affair featuring dozens of soaring sandstone towers capped
with bright green domes trimmed with brass. The interior
spaces or Lhe palace are bright and airy, with tall arched
ceilings and numerous windows that give even the small-
est spaces an open. expansive feel. A broad pedestrian
avenue. the Palace Plaza stretches from the steps of the
palace's main entrance to a large park known as the Palace
Courtyard. The plaza is lined with shops. museums. monu-
ments, and buildings housing various state agencies and
their attendant workers. The palace has been expanded and
renovated countless Limes in the nearly thousand years of its
existence; within il are many long-disused chambers. secret
rooms. and rorgotten corridors.

Situated al Lhe base of the Cliffs or Theed in a broad ex-
panse of reclaimed floodplain, Theed Spaceport is Naboo's
primary spaceport and one of the busiest ports in the Chom-
,a mell sector. Built shortly after the city's rounding in 832 BBY

s, t-"' and expanded in 65 BBY by Outer Rim ConstrucLion and
Assembly, Lhe mu l ~i Liered, high-volume spaceport is used
lfrfl prirn~rily f?r ~eavy shi~ping and commercial passenger
lfi~'I service. With 1Ls expansive platforms and broad. clear ap
h~ proaches. the_ spaceport can handle ships ranging rrom
crvt shuttles and light rre1ghters to Botajef freighter ltners and
even, in a pinch. ships as large as a CR90 corvette. The
spaceport also houses a large and ornate terrrunal build
ing. a handrul of administration buildings, and nurnerous
storage and ma1nlenance hangars.

of the competitive nature of their homeworld. The ability
to rapidly convert food into energy is tightly linked to the
species' characteristic quickness. Aleena are omnivores who
typically prefer very spicy cuisine. but there is no clear physi-
ological basis for this preference. Visitors to their homes and
world are often surprised by the food's intensity.
Society: Aleena are fiercely loyal to their families. In their
native cultures. extended families dwell together. often shar-
ing interlinked rooms within a larger structure. All Aleena
within a village typically share blood ties.
This strong connection continues when they travel beyond
their worlds of origin. It is rare for an Aleena to travel alone.
Instead. family members commonly travel together. In cases
where a single Aleena travels as a performer, relatives join
the performer as an entourage. They rejoice in their kin's
success and offer comfort at times of disappointment.
Homeworld: Aleen Minor is an Inner Rim world and the
species' planet of origin. It held membership in the Galac-

this weapon's true nature.


A spear is essentially a blade at the end of a long pole,

typically about two rnelers in length. In a pinch. tying a
combat knife to the end of a reasonably straight branch is
enough to fashion a spear. A less hastily constructed ver-
sion incorporates a double-edged blade as well as a shaft
that is made of a material sturdy enough to parry other
weapons. The city guard of Vossport on Weik prefer heavy,
long spears as their primary weapon . as they are simple to
master and versatile.
The Voss warspear is a one-handed weapon. however it
cannot be wrelded with other weapons. It may, at the GM's
discretion. be wielded while using a shield.
A spear may be thrown as a ranged weapon. If used in
this manner. change the skill to Ranged (Light} and the range
of the weapon to short. The weapon also gains the Limited
Arnrno l quality (but if retrieved. rt can be used again}.
