Star Wars: Dawn of Darkness
Ecumenopolis is the name of a mining and residential settlement in the northern hemisphere of the planet Dantooine. The main purpose of the settlement is to support the nearby mines up river situated in very treacherous mountains.
The mines, who dig for the rare Danto-Lommite Ore would load their hauls of ore onto repulsor-barges, which would then travel down river to the Ecumenopolis docks, where the ore would be unloaded and moved into large warehouses where they would be kept awaiting shipment to any number of buyers throughout the outer rim.
The mining operation and the settlement themselves are both controlled by the Tarisian, a wealthy but secretive businessman and entrepreneur. The mining operation is not a part of the mining guild however, and the Tarisian has taken great steps to keep the operation from attracting the guilds attention.
The settlement itself boasts several hotels and cantina’s, a holotheatre, repair shops, speeder and swoop dealerships, many clothing retailers and even features a rare Wookie colony on it’s south western edge known as Nng-Muarga Kashyyyk.

The player party first came to Ecumenopolis after being recruited by the Tarisian’s agent on Nar Shadda. The party was needed to help defend Ecumenopolis from ongoing co-ordinated pirate attacks and raids that were causing great damage to the settlement and it’s citizens.
