"You know how you get those spooky Halloween stories where a car breaks down and there's a creepy castle on a hill. Well, imagine a spaceship landing on a lava planet and the only place is a castle on a hill."
―Cavan Scott[src]

  2. Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 ends with Darth Vader imprisoning Vaneé, and as shown in Star Wars Adventures: Shadow of Vader's Castle, he doesn't get released until after the end of the Galactic Civil War. As he appears in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places in 0 BBY, Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle 5 must take place some time after 0 BBY. Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle takes place immediately before Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader's Castle, meaning that Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle takes place after 0 BBY. As Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Vader's Castle features Darth Vader, who dies in 4 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, then this series must take place some time between 0 BBY and 4 ABY.
