High Stakes and Hyperspace was a gambling den located on a hangar deck level of the Wheel space station during the Galactic Civil War between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic. The interior of the den contained vidscreens which provided the only lighting and showed Ronto racing and gladiatorial matches for viewers to bet on, as well as tables for sabacc, dejarik or chance cubes. At the tables holograms of Togruta waitresses took orders for drinks from customers and set up the games. The den's bookie was a Duros named Jokol who also took drink orders as well as wagers from customers, with whom he often made gruff small talk if they were betting.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
High Stakes and Hyperspace was first introduced in Beyond the Rim, an adventure module written by Sterling Hershey in 2013 for the Fantasy Flight Games roleplaying game, Star Wars: Edge of the Empire. The den was a location players could potentially visit while searching for information during the first episode of the game.
