In 14 BBY following the Berch Teller campaign, Governor Wilhuff Tarkin repayed a debt to the Sith Lord Darth Vader by having himself and nineteen other men hunt Vader on the planet Chandar's Folly. Vader had asked for Tarkin to hunt him as Vader had developed a respect for the governor, and because Vader had learned of Tarkin's past hunting on Eriadu during their time working together during the Berch Teller campaign. In the second day of the hunt, the group tracked Vader to a copse of thurian trees and surrounded him with flamethrowers before letting loose on the Sith. As they engulfed him with flames, Vader attacked the flamethrowers, resulting in the loss of four hunters. By the time of the ninth day of the hunt, the group had lost eight more hunters.
On the final day of the hunt, Vader killed all the hunters except Tarkin, who lured the Sith into storm ground. As a result, Vader was severely injured by a lightning strike, and Tarkin called in his ship to pick them both up.

Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 1.2 Tarkin
- ↑ Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 19
- ↑ 3.0 3.1 The events of Tarkin take place five years after the rise of the Galactic Empire, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY. Therefore, Tarkin must be set in 14 BBY. As Darth Vader knows about Wilhuff Tarkin's past on Eriadu in Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 18, which he only learned about in Tarkin, issue 18 must take place after the novel. The later issue Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 19 featured the Second Sister, who was killed in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Fallen Order takes place five years after the Great Jedi Purge, which is dated to 19 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Therefore, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is also set in 14 BBY. As Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 18 is between both Tarkin and Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 19, the events of the issue must take place in 14 BBY
