Korriban

Korriban is the starting world for the Sith Inquisitor and Sith Warrior. The earliest Sith lived on the red, dusty planet of Korriban, determined to grow strong despite the inhospitable climate. Their success culminated in a bold civilization, made stronger when dark Force-users arrived and interbred after being driven out of the early Jedi Order. This ancient Sith civilization eventually became a superpower and challenged the Republic during the Great Hyperspace war. Their defeat drove a handful of survivors into deep space where they regrouped and rebuilt, determined to return. Over time, the new Sith Empire lost its way back to Korriban, until a visit a few centuries ago by two Jedi returning from the Mandalorian wars. The true Sith Empire, governed by a thousand-year-old Dark Emperor, wisely waited, and returned to the known galaxy only when completely prepared to defeat the Jedi and the Republic. Retaking the holy planet of Korriban as a top priority, the Sith re-established the glorious Sith Academy and began training a new generation of Sith to inherit their dark legacy and seize their birthright as the true rulers of the galaxy. A cruel planet of rocky red deserts and crumbling ruins, Korriban was the homeworld of the ancient Sith. Reclaimed by the Empire in recent decades, it is now the site of the Sith Academy, where the Dark Council oversees the training of new acolytes. Only Sith may come and go freely from the academy, and for a non-Sith to visit Korriban is a great privilege. Surrounding the academy are the tombs of the first Dark Lords. Used as testing grounds by the academy overseers, the tombs remain filled with traps, monstrosities and relics, even millennia after their construction—along with the bodies of a generation of failed acolytes.

The sole artifact to survive this era was the ancient Star Maparound which the tomb of Naga Sadow was later built. The Rakata were eventually forced off the world after the Sith King Adas led his people against them [7]. Adas died in the battle, and thus, despite this victory, the Sith society crumbled, and, in the ensuing centuries of strife, the Sith relocated to worlds such as ArbraZiost and Tund using captured Rakatan vessels, leaving Korriban as a graveyard world populated only by religious fanatics [2]. The world was at least a nominal member of Xim's empire from around 25, BBY until its fall, and was given the name Pesegam [2]. The fallen Jedi landed on Korriban.

After losing his memory, Revan visited the academy again in BBY on his quest to re-discover the Star Forge for the good of the Republic. It took the Republic a couple of years to send an expeditionary force to Korriban around BBY in order to deal with any potential Sith who might attempt to take up the mantle of Dark Lord. They found a planet nearly in ruins—barren and lifeless as a result of the then unknown civil war [14]. It was assumed by the commanders of the Republic task force that the remnants of the Sith turned on each other, vying for what little power remained.

The Ebon Hawk lifts off from Dreshdae starport, awash in the golden light of a Korriban sunset. It took the Republic a couple of years to send an expeditionary force to Korriban around BBY in order to deal with any potential Sith who might attempt to take up the mantle of Dark Lord. They found a planet nearly in ruins—barren and lifeless as a result of the then unknown civil war. It was also said that Revan had always intended to return to Korriban one day to subdue any would-be Sith insurgents, but he then disappeared. After the fall of Darth Malak, the ancient tombs within the Valley of the Dark Lords were plundered by grave-robbers. Each tomb was once infused with the history and heritage of the old Sith Empire, containing great mysteries and powerful relics of the Force. However, their malignant spirits remained, ready to confront any who disturb their rest by way of their guardian-familiars, the Hssiss. She was eventually trapped and killed by Sith Lord Darth Sion in the ruins of the academy, and then used as bait to lure the Jedi Exile into Sion's hands. After escaping the trap, the Exile discovered the long lost tomb of Ludo Kressh. In the aftermath of the Jedi Civil War, a fleet of Republic ships remained to guard the abandoned Sith world of Korriban. This remained until the onset of the Great Galactic Warwhen the reformed Sith Empire emerged and began conquering worlds in the Aparo sector as well as ambushed the Republic fleet in the Tingel Armas part of the Emperor's plan. In the millennium since the Great Hyperspace War, the Empire had lost the location of Korriban, but they regained it when the Sith Emperor dominated the minds of Revan and Malak. In order to bolster their forces, the Republic pulled many of their ships to support the fleet which left only a small number of Jedi security ships to patrol Korriban. This action, however, had already been predicted and played right into the Emperor's hand. As the conflict continued, the Sith, knowing that the Republic Forces on Korriban were weakened significantly, staged an assault against the guarding ships and destroyed them thus returning the planet to Sith control, just as the Emperor planned, before the Jedi Council became aware of the incident.

Once you land on Korriban, search the area to the right and the left of the Ebon Hawk and Kreia will contact you through the force bond. You can listen to her info about each Sith tomb to gain dark side points. There are two more tombs up ahead. If you search the skeletal corpses laying about the area you will be attacked by two or three hssiss each time. These can be annoying battles, but they will reward you with a good amount of experience. Continue walking south until you reach a cave that is filled with dark energy. Kreia advises that you investigate the academy first. Listen to her and continue to the south. There are a few annoying tuk'ata outside of the academy, but at this point in the game they should be no problem. Continue inside the building where you will find more of these goat creatures and some Sith assassins. Darth Sion is waiting for you somewhere inside the academy, so be prepared. The Academy You will reach a crossroads of sorts inside the academy. You are traveling from the north so first check the locked door to the northeast. There are some footlockers in this room as well as a trio of Sith assassins waiting to strike. The next stop is the hallway directly to the west. This leads to the dormitories and some computer terminals. In order to enter the rest of the academy you will need to enter into the automated training program. This area also contains many cloaked Sith Assassins and footlockers. When you reach the terminal enter as a new recruit. Now, grant yourself access to the course materials and the doorway that leads to the north western passage from the middle of the academy will open up. Travelling to this area is necessary because you will receive thorium charges needed to open the locked door at the very west of the academy.
