Episol had four planets, two of which are radiated beyond habitability, the third a barren world excavated by mining operations, and the last, Nepe, a gas giant. Nepe’s moon, Dayark, had a temperate atmosphere and was the capital of the Kathol Republic. One side of the moon always faced Nepe so only the sunward side was inhabited.


Exocron System (M-21)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

Nah’Malis System (M-21)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Danoor

o Duhrib Belt (asteroid belt)

Also known as the Danoor System, the planet was colonized by scientists and colonists in 92 BBY as a science research project to study the Kathol Rift, and for those who wanted to escape the bureaucracy of the Republic. Five decades later, the planet was devastated from an asteroid from the Duhrib Belt impacting the planet, killing half a million people. The citizens of Danoor were able to recover and were visited by New Republic forces in 8 ABY.

However, crime lords and their criminal minions were able to steal the station and reposition it in the Qu’mock System. Thirty-four years later, an earthquake devastated the planet, killing everyone, and the space station sat dormant until members of the Qektoth Confederation repurposed it.


Pitann System (M-21)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Pitann

Pitann was a desert world with a searing hot climate and high gravitational pull. The planet was rich in ores and minerals and the vast fields of refineries made the atmosphere polluted.

Swedlan System (M-21)

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Sun/Star: unnamed

· Orbits:

o Timbra Ott

Originally a sister colony to Gandle Ott, Timbra Ott suffered irreparable damage after an earthquake ripped apart the mantle, causing massive tidal waves that destroyed most coastal settlements.
