"Ilyamo wanted to go hiking and the best hiking is around here."
Angela, to a spacer[src]

The Nomad Mountains, also known as the Thaos Mountains, were a forested mountain range on the planet Corellia.[1][6]

History[]

"Lately, we've had some disappearances in the nearby mountains. No witnesses."
Commander Talte, to a spacer[src]

In the northern part of the mountains laid the city of Doaba Guerfel, which was originally a private resort simply known as Nomad's Retreat.[1][6]

During the Galactic Civil War, Jareck Arned had a home in the mountains where he lived a solitary life.[5] Around the same time, Myron Beech was organizing hiking trails in the Thaos Mountains.[7] After Battle of Yavin, psychotic cave-dwellers captured two groups of hikers in the Thaos Mountains.[3] They were finally rescued by the Corellian Security Force.[8]

Behind the scenes[]

The Nomad Mountains first appeared in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts,[1] prior to its closure on December 15, 2011.[9] Its name was revealed in the description of the city of Doaba Guerfel that was shown to players on the screen that allowed them to choose the starting location for a new character.[10] These description texts were removed when Mos Eisley was made the starting city for all players with the release of the "Publish 25", a.k.a. the "New Game Enhancements", on November 15, 2005.[11] However, in the same game, the mountains around Doaba Guerfel were identified as the Thaos Mountains in the planetary regions of Corellia.[1]
