Jabba's Palace

this was the common name given to the complex of buildings and subterranean rooms that was controlled by Jabba the Hutt. It was located in the Northern Dune Sea, on the planet Tatooine, and was situated at the end of a secluded valley. The original palace was erected by the B'omarr Monks, who built it as a peaceful sanctuary from which they could contemplate the universe. The monks built the two main aboveground structures: a nine-story tower that contained a circular stairway, and the main rotunda. The tower's stairway provided a great deal of space for the monks to wander, as they could move up and down the stairs for hours, in contemplation of the universe. The rotunda was was originally constructed as a place of worship, where the disembodied brains of enlightened monks reposed in tiers around the outer edge. Prayer banners hung from the ceiling, and the eerie silence of the brain canisters lent the rotunda a sinister feeling. A ceremonial concourse was created around the rotunda, which provided additional space for the monks to roam. It was rumored that a chamber was located deep under the ground, in which the B'omarr monks kept a collection of "regeneration gems", but the chamber was never found. For thirty-four years before Jabba took control of the palace, it was taken over by the bandit Alkhara, who renovated it to serve as the base of operations for his raiders. During Alkhara's stay, the monks were forced to retreat to the deepest levels of the palace. Jabba ousted Alkhara, and allowed the monks to roam the entire complex with freedom, as Jabba preferred the lower levels where he felt safer. It was believed that the Hutt urenovated a former B'omarr chapel to serve as his throne room. Jabba reinforced the dome of the rotunda with ditanium, and installed shielding to protect from orbital or suborbital assault. In the upper stories of the tower, Jabba installed a hyperwave transceiver and a holographic map of the galaxy, using the tower as his primary communications facility. Much of the renovations done by Jabba were performed at the direction of Derren Flet, and the palace's external structures were so large that they were visible from orbit.
