Edge of Adventure
Ryloth is the principal planet in the Ryloth system located in the Outer Rim near Tatooine. It is home to the Twi’leks, a humanoid species with two large, fleshy head-tails growing from their skulls. The Twi’leks call these prehensile appendages lekku and can communicate through subtle lekku gestures, although they also speak Twi’leki.
It is a planet of extremes: dry, rocky landscapes of deserts, mountain ranges with mist-covered peaks, shadowy valleys, alternated with snowy wastes, joined by lush temperate bands which concentrates much of its population. Because of its unusual day-night rotation period, atmospheric conditions on Ryloth’s surface are characterized by turbulent seasons and extremely high winds (reaching 500 kilometers per hour) scouring the surface and sculpting the landscape and unpredictable bursts of heat called heat storms, which can reach 300 degrees Celsius. The more extreme heat storms sometimes move across the terminator and reaches miles underground, making caves near the surface temporarily uninhabitable, before eventually dying out on the night side.
It is a planet which has seen many great tradegies over the last century blockaded an invaded during the clone wars and with the rise of the empire it’s people are regularly captured and sold as slaves, especially the females. Ryloths other primary export is Ryll a mineral that can be made into valuable medicine and unfortunately for Ryloth for use in various recreational drugs. Various criminal organisations have large interests in the system especially the hutts.
