TRF :: To Rule with a Rod of Iron
Someone once said of a Tatooine spaceport, "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy." They were wrong. If anything could be more wretched, more full of scum and villains than Nar Shaddaa, it was surely a place alive only in the imaginations of its creators. Nar Shaddaa was anything but imaginary, and its creators were of the most wretched scum of all villains, the Hutts. Where the Hutts went, anyone from smugglers to petty thieves and robber were sure to follow. Such as it was with Nar Shaddaa, which, some historians had speculated, was once a thriving trade center built on legitimate reputations and honest trade. But as the economic strength of the Galactic Republic grew, and the tradelanes shifted away from Hutt Space, Nar Shaddaa turned into the Smuggler's Moon of modern times. Not even the Republic or its various successors were ever able to curb the rampant crime and many lowlifes who called the moon-wide city home.
