Finally returning back to the Phoenix Rising team I bring you the planet Despayre. A planet filled with a Wookie slave work force and treacherous jungles making most invasion forces think twice before attempting to land on such a dangerous planet. Despayre was also home to a penal colony for the Galactic Empire. The shipyard at Despayre became home to the construction of the Empire's ultimate weapon, eventually installed into the Death Star. The Empire heavily restricted traffic to the system to keep the weapon program a secret from the galaxy.
Ultimately, the planet was destroyed in a test of the Death Star's main gun. Operating at merely 1/3 of it's full potential the gun from the Death Star turned a planet full of swamps and jungles into a molten, smoldering rock floating in space. Eventually as the tests continued the planet was completely blown to bits by order of Grand Moff Willhum Tarkin, who personally oversaw the construction of the Death Star's main gun on several occasions.
Brought to life in Phoenix Rising, you are sure to think twice before attempting to launch a ground assault on such a bog-ridden and overgrown planet.
