Wait, what? Where does the erasal/rediscovery come from?--Erl 02:10, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Contradiction Edit

How is it that the 327th Star Corps fought a battle on Dromund Kaas during the Clone Wars, when Dromund Kaas' Dark Force power disables all weapons, except lightsabers?

    • Heh! Another game-related mess up, courtesy of LucasArts. Good find. The retcon will probably say that they fought with close-combat weapons, or that only the areas close to the Temple was weapon-supressing.DarthMRN 15:09, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

ExpansionEdit

This article deserves to be bigger, Dromund Kaas is a highly important planet in terms of the Dark Side. The article doesn't really go into detail that the planet was the base of Darth Millenial's Dark Force sect, who later became the Prophets of the Dark Side.

It's a shame this planet has been so neglected by the EU, when it's so important in the histories of the Sith.


I agree... --Lord Thanatos 10:01, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Re-writeEdit

I just undertook the complete re-writning of the history of Dromund Kaas. As this is such a major change, I feel that an explanation is not only polite, but required of me.

My reasoning is rather simple: the old article was majorly lacking information. So much so, that it would have been a bigger chore to add the information than it was to re-write. Also, it read more like a list than anything else, lacking a sense of flow.

I understand that I may have offended some people, but I felt the article needed it. Din's Fire 997 04:34, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Ill-fated pirate raid Edit

Objection to this edit: Out of context, the note now sounds like it's saying "this is potentially-canon information that hasn't appeared in a story" (like the Sissks). --Andrew Nagy 01:17, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Dromund Kaas in Star Wars: The Old Republic Edit

Reading about the new additions to the SW:TOR - about the Imperial Agent-class - I found this:

"The upper echelons of Imperial society are reserved for the Force-sensitive Sith alone, but theirs is a world apart. The heart of the Empire consists of millions of subjects, descendants of the original exiles who settled Dromund Kaas. For these loyal citizens, the Imperial Agent is the exemplar of the highest level of achievement one might aspire to. These are the people the Agent risks everything to protect. Though there are few idealists in Imperial Intelligence, the art of professional perfection is held in deep reverence, and the Agent embodies the Imperial ideal in this respect."

It seems it expands the info about the planet a bit. Taken from here

It is now an Official Planet for the game: http://swtor.com/info/holonet/planets/dromund-kaas

The above is what is listed on the page about the Planet for this time.Altyrell 15:28, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

Old material focus? Edit

There is going to be a lot more information about this planet in the coming year, should this article really be focused so much on the older material? It being the capitol of nation that conquers half of the galaxy is important, compared to that, these other events are minor. Look at it's entry in the holonet at SWTOR.com (- -) 19:10, April 30, 2010 (UTC)

  • This is a wiki. We take down information from all, and I stress the all sources as long as they are canonical. The old information is still valid, unless newer information retcons them - which means a new spin to the established canon. This is how wookiepedia works. Old material won't be thrown out just because it is, as you say, old. As long as nothing reverts it's validity, then it is valid. Gratulor - User Page 19:36, April 30, 2010 (UTC)
    • I was just thinking, that someone would play the game, go to this planet and be mislead about it. For instance, it's plant life. It looks quite different in The Old Republic compared to Mysteries of The Sith... Will they be expecting Sith-spawn when there aren't any? Since these things are there long after the events of the game, and being inhabited by that offshoot sith organization, the planet is likley very different and more info should be added from the planet's holonet entry. Anyway, I guess the article will be updated after the launch. It just something that bugs me, is all. (- -) 01:24, May 6, 2010 (UTC)

Image of parade? Edit

In the fourth page of the second part of Blood of the Empire, we see what looks like a sith celebration...

LocationEdit

In TOR, how can Dromund Kaas, in Sith Space, be the capital of the Sith Empire if the Empire was rebuilt in the Unknown Regions? Is Sith Space part of the Unknown Regions at the time? --DarthEinstein 13:29, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

  • Because the location of Dromund Kaas was unknown to the Sith (because it was forgotten), the Jedi, and the Republic. This meant its location was unknown, and therefore its location was an unknown region. The Essential Atlas says that after the Great Hyperspace War the Sith Emperor and his followers fled towards the Unknown Regions of the galaxy (as in the actual Unknown Regions), however, we know that it was after 20 years of blind scouting missions and random hyperspace jumps that they came to Dromund Kaas. Because of this there is no conflict, it just means the armada headed towards the Unknown Regions initially, before finding Dromund Kaas again 20 years later. Hope that helps in some way.

Dormund Kaas was deleted by Dooku from the Archives, And there also took a battle place between the CIS and Galactic Republic. But the planet itself was not Republic does that mean its a Separatist Planet.

Incoming Content: Fate of the Jedi Edit

Fate of the Jedi Fate of the Jedi: Ascension includes some action on this planet. Luke Skywalker, Ben Skywalker, Jaina Solo and Vestara check the planet for any sith presences, and FIND SOME... Just thought I'd note it here (in the hopes that these events will be cataloged), I read about this in spoilers.

FYI, this article is horribly out-dated, since the planet plays a HUGE role in the galaxy, in Star Wars: The Old Republic.(- -)

Drew K's response to Homeworld issue Edit

Thaknks for the e-mail; glad you enjoyed Revan.

The Sith homeworld stuff is very murky. In some works it's Korriban, in others it's Ziost, and in others it's Dromund Kaas. This is partly author confusion in the Star Wars universe, but I like to see it as indicative of the mystery and legend surrounding the Sith within the Star Wars setting. It's a bit like historical attempts trying to pin down the location of the Garden of Eden - part myth, part legend, part fact, part propoganda.

I think it's fine to see the Emperor as co-opting Dromund Kaas to fit hsi needs and rechristening it as the "true" homeworld just so his followers would buy into what he was selling.

Hope this helps.
