Fort Garnik was the chief base for Republic military forces on Avilatan. It held the command center, as well as a small spaceport used to reach orbit. Listening posts, armored transports, and aerial support units could be found there. Fort Garnik also held a small market, businesses, and a cantina, and during the Separatist War refugee camps surrounded the fort.
During the Mantellian Separatist Movement, Separatist attacks were common. Continuous fighting existed near the base, in an effort to drive the Republic off Avilatan.
Behind the scenesEdit
Fort Garnik first appeared in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game released by BioWare on December 20, 2011. It is the main location for the Republic classes on Ord Mantell and it can be only accessed by characters belonging to this faction because the planet is not available on the galactic map for the Empire classes. The fort consists of several quests for the Trooper and Smuggler classes.
