Sayblohn was a planet located in the Mid Rim's Quess sector. It was occupied by the Galactic Empire, and a group of pirates had a hidden base in the planet's badlands. During the Galactic Civil War, a Rebel Alliance team of operatives traveled to Sayblohn in order to retrieve a stolen art object. After several run-ins with the local pirates, the team was ultimately successful in its mission.

History[edit | edit source]
At some point during that conflict, the Rebel Alliance tasked a special operative team with retrieving from Sayblohn a stolen art object, which held significant religious importance to the Okfili species. Provided with the name and location of an Alliance contact on Sayblohn, the team traveled to the planet, only to be ambushed by a group of local pirates.
Upon landing on Sayblohn, the operatives were questioned by Imperial authorities about the pirate attack the former had suffered. The Alliance team subsequently located its contact, finding him murdered. When the agents discovered the killer, one of the pirates that had previously attacked them, they pursued him, locating the pirates' hidden base in the process. A firefight ensued, and after their contact's murderer was defeated, the operatives smuggled the stolen artifact onto their starship without attracting Imperial attention.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Sayblohn was introduced in the 1987 rulebook for the first edition of West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. Within the book, the planet is mentioned in an example of an outline for a roleplaying adventure. This article assumes the scenario plays out as described. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Sayblohn system, and therefore the planet Sayblohn, in grid square N-16.
