    All too small. :( I have the older maps in OK sizes, but I don't know what to pick.

    Do we know who has that sector in later 5 ABY, given that it was very, very pro-Empire?

    Spuma and Brintooin seem nice. :)

    Well, the Wook is vague re: NuCanon. Legends has it going Republic & reverting back to Empire. But if it was strongly pro-Empire, I'd say that 5 ABY, it's probably either Imperial Warlords or still part of the Remnant. So if you want to keep it Imperial, why not use it?

    Maybe Cmaoli Di is a beter suggestion, it's the Brema sector, (the same as Sullust, which was libirated by 5 ABY) along the Hydian Way, which means that you pass it on the way to Bespin from Naboo if you take the quickes hyperlane path. There is nearly nothing on it so you can creat what ever you need.

    If you want I can do my stuff and create some fanon regarding it that you can use or use as inspiration.

    At that point, the Empire probably has bigger concerns than their Scarlet List. They might be able to pass through relatively unnoticed. Or were they actually going to perform there?

    I'll consider this planet, too. :)

    Perhaps do a promotional interview or two, but not perform. The band on the banned list is deffo not going there.

    As a spin off of the discussions of the potential Kenobi film I'm trying to write my own twist of the "what did Kenobi do while waiting for Luke to grow up" story. Or at least a part of that story. But first of all the poor guy needs to settle down in his new home.

    Does anyone know if there's an official name of the mountains where Old Ben had his home? I tried to search Wookieepedia but didn't find anything. I can of course invent a name, but I'd like to use the right one if such thing exists.

    Thanks, I've already asked the mod to place my question somewhere in an existing thread. I realized that it wasn't really good having it as a stand alone thread. Will check out the threads mentioned. It may be difficult to find in a thread that's more than 200 pages long though.

    @Ewok Poet - how about Sullust? It's on the way from Naboo to Bespin - the Rebellion is well liked there (a hero co-piloting the Falcon on the big day!). Old canon is in flux, but it says this on the Wook:

    By 4 ABY, the Rebel Alliance used the planet as the staging area for its fleet prior to the Battle of Endor

    To do that, it must be a) liberated, and b) free of Imperial presence (to keep things secret) and c) very friendly to the alliance.

    Not much countryside, but "nice" if you like caves. :)

    @Kurisan - Do you really, really, really think that I did not consider this at some point? :p I wanted a nice and lesser known place.

    I think you will have to make a side track if you are travelling from Naboo to Bespin to visit Sullust using the normal hyperlanes

    Aha now you put it like that I guess you DID already consider it ooops. I dunno, sometimes people overlook or discount the obvious for no good reason.

    Does anyone remember the exact wording of Luke's answer to Leia when she says "my son is gone" at the end of TLJ? I think it's "no one's ever really gone", but I'm not entirely sure.

    Darn, should've put a smiley up there. @Kurisan, I hope that my weird sense of humour didn't freak you out. I already had a situation about a week ago when somebody didn't know that I was joking. [face_monkey][face_blush]

    @Gamiel, I thiiiink my head is spinning now. Must.invent.a.believable.route. [face_relieved]

    Just checked, it's that. :)

    Here: Naboo > Enarc Run > Triellus Trade Run > Hydian Way > Nothoiin Corridor > Corellian Trade Spin > Ison Corridor > Bespin
    I got that route by looking at this fan-mede Interactive map of the Galaxy

    Hmm, could be. It's just that I imagine the Great Mesra Plateau more like a, well, plateau than the mountain area we can see old Ben living in in ANH. I can always invent a name for that particular mountain area, I just don't want to collide with an existing well known name.

    Oh, my mistake, then you take: Bespin > Ison Corridor > Corellian Trade Spin > Nothoiin Corridor > Hydian Way > Triellus Trade Run > take a turn somewhere between Koiogra and Molavar (since there is no named route between the Triellus Trade Run and Roon) > Roon

    (if we go by the Interactive map of the Galaxy)

    Thanks. I shall look at that. :)

    And that's a weird map - shows only four systems in the Corellian Sector - Corellia, Sacorria, Nubia and Goorla.
