The Mabbitt Advantage:

Hey Team, here's what I got on Tattoine: It's a desolate, arid world, largely ignored by the major powers in the galaxy. Ironically, Tatooine has proven to be one of the most influential planets in history, shaping two generations of Skywalkers into the heroes famed across the stars.

Located in the Arkanis sector of the Outer Rim, Tatooine is a desert world orbiting twin G1 and G2 suns.

They make you hallucinate. Think you see water in the pic? Wrong! It's a mirage!

Named Tatoo I and Tatoo II, these suns scorch the planet's surface with an intense heat that make survival there very difficult. Early scout ships had actually labeled Tatooine as the Tatoo system's third sun - such was the intensity of the reflected heat and light from the true suns. However, after learning the body was actually a planet, miners colonized Tatooine in the hopes of locating valuable metallic ores. The miners' ships carried the first generation of Tatooine's original colonists - later referred to as the 'Oldsters'. The miners set up facilities to dig for the supposed ore, and created crude sandstone huts to protect themselves from the heat. The simple but effective architecture of these huts would become a dominant style in future towns on Tatooine.

Nevertheless, life perseveres, and so can we. Though few beings prosper on Tatooine, most get by with what they have. Historians believed that Tatooine had once been covered by oceans, though over time these water masses dried up, leaving behind great canyons and eroded rock formations. Since we are positioned in one of these rock formations, we will not only have somewhat more shelter from the sun than our opponents, but I estimate that we will have a relative comfort in the form of less sand where the suns don't shine.

Though mostly covered by endless deserts and daunting dune seas, Tatooine's landscape is broken up by a number of rocky mesas and winding arroyos, such as Beggar's Canyon and the famous Boonta Eve Classic racecourse. These rocky areas house many of Tatooine's native creatures (read: FOOD), from the docile banthas to vicious womprats, legendary krayt dragons, massive rontos, and small but tasty scurriers (shown here)

Tastes like chicken

In addition, the savage Tusken Raiders are known to roam the Jundland Wastes, as are the junk-collecting Jawas. While these species were Tatooine's true natives, many more aliens have come to call Tatooine home.

As for our opponents, the suns will be beating down 5/6 of the day on them with nothing to shield them - except Padme's parasol.

Our opponent's primary food source? Sandworms. Or should I say, our opponents might be a sandworm's primary food source.

They can grow larger than many spaceships.

Good luck trying to catch even a baby one of those.
