The Jedi Enclave on Dantooine carries a troubled past. Established by Jedi Master Vodo-Siosk Baas shortly before The Great Sith War, the enclave quickly gains a reputation as a quality training center. Many Jedi, including some of the great Jedi Masters of the time, base themselves from Dantooine to further their training and continue their research into the ways of The Force. Many great Jedi who serve during The Great Sith War complete their training on Dantooine as well. At the same time, many of the era's worst Dark Siders come from the enclave, including Exar Kun, Darth Revan, and Darth Malak.

Despite its strong contingent of Jedi, the enclave is attacked numerous times by Sith forces. The Sith Empire even manage to occupy the compound for a year before the Empire's collapse in 3,956 BBY. The Jedi Order strive to rebuild and maintain the facility for the next few decades and even decide to house the reformed Jedi Council there. However, it is finally abandoned after Darth Traya kills the entire Jedi Council a few years later.

Dantooine's Jedi Enclave employs many individuals from the local population to help maintain the facility, provide services, and keep the campus in top working order. Arakyd Industries operates a company store and repair facility at the enclave, servicing The Jedi as well as the local population.

10-14 Dantooine is an Outer Rim world positioned near the Hydian Way Hyperspace route. The temperate climate supports a multitude of flora and fauna and makes it an ideal planet for agriculture.
15-19 The Jedi Enclave on Dantooine trains many Jedi during the times of The Great Sith War and The Jedi Civil War. Although The Jedi work hard to keep its location secret, The Sith Empire attack the facility several times while it is active.

Dantooine is the site of a significant battle between the Republic and the Confederacy during the Clone Wars. During this battle, Jedi Master Mace Windu almost single-handedly defeats a Droid Army consisting of B2-Series Super Battle Droids, even though he is without his Lightsaber for most of the fight.

25+ The planet was one of the subject worlds of The Infinite Empire. Ancient Rakata built several structures on the planet's surface, one of which is believed to house a Star Map. By the time of The Jedi Civil War, several Rakatan Guardian Droids still operate within the ruins of these ancient structures.

20+ Although Humans make up the largest percentage of the world population, the Dantari race has claimed Dantooine as their homeworld for many centuries. Records dating back to the early days of the Republic confirm their existence on the planet. The Dantari are wiped out during the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion.

 Jedi Temple Adventure Hook Edit

Adventure and excitement accompany The Jedi Order wherever it goes. Since The Jedi Order maintains only one key temple at a time, adventure ideas should be easy to focus and implement, depending on the era of your campaign.

  • The heroes hear rumors of strange activity at the ancient ruin of the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine. Perhaps pirates are using the location as a base for raids in the sector, or Sith agents are looking for artifacts hidden in the ruins.
