Star Wars: Halcyon Dawn
Alamut is the capital and largest city of the planet Shaddoth. It is the seat of government for the Shadiq, and is governed by the Conclave of Shaddoth. The city is known for its vast network of towers and canals. THe city itself floats atop a basin of irradiated water that cause the city’s waterways to glow in vibrant shades of color in the night.
In addition to its local prominence, Alamut contains more casinos per capita than any other planet in the outer rim. Alamut also maintains the galaxy’s largest open-air slave market and sees much extra-system travel for this purpose. Other notable features include the Shaddoth Series of Sabacc, a yearly Sabbac tournament bearing the largest prize pool in the outer rim territories. Also, the city’s pod racing track is well known on the galactic circuit. Despite the decline in the sport’s popularity after the rise of the New Order, pod racing remains a vibrant and dangerous feature of life on the outer rim.
