Wild Space: Anyone Use this Region?

Post by Havard » Sun Feb 07, 2016 2:17 pm

Wild Space is a region beyond the Galactic Rim. First appearing in the Extended Universe, It was introduced into Disney Canon in the Clone Wars movie and has later made appearances in the Clone Wars series and most recently in Rebels.

What is known about this place?
  • It contains the original homeworld of the Lasat race. (see Rebels)
  • It contains the world Mortis, a world uniquely connected to the Force as seen in Clone Wars season 3
  • The region contains the planet Teth, home of the B'Omar Order
  • Parts of Wild Space was controlled by the Hutts before the Clone Wars
Would this be an interesting region for a campaign do you think?

Edit: Fixed mistake about where this region originated.

Just to clarify: Wild Space has existed for much, much longer than that. For example, my copy of the Thrawn Trilogy Sourcebook includes a number of references to it. The current canon references begin with the Clone Wars movie.

Ahh! I did hear it had its origins in the extended universe, but then I got confused with Wookiepedia's current way of listing things.

I will edit my origianl post!

I imagine "Wild Space" has existed in some form ever since hyperdrives were first invented in the SW universe. It seems to simply be a term for uncharted star systems, most of which exist at the fringes of the galaxy. Plotting a course to an unknown system is pretty dangerous, because there's no telling what you might encounter between you and your destination.

Indeed. The Wild Space is especially useful as a frontier region for exploration campaigns in the Rise of Empire and Galactic Civil War eras, when most other areas have already been explored. Saga has an entire supplement focusing on the Unknown Regions, a similarly unexplored region even further from the Slice, which serves the same purpose in later eras (New Republic and beyond).
