Gilliana Geographic Location in Star Wars: Shards | World Anvil


First campaign appearance: Shards of Honor 28.0 "Birthright"

VNY's notes:

Gilliana's population is mostly Human, but I saw a large number of Devaronians, Rodians, and Twi'leks in the Surov city market.
I kind of want to go back to that market. Out of uniform. With a spending chit about the size of Senator Skywalker's Capital Season catering budget.
I'm not going to, obviously, and I will only suggest it (quietly!) once every five years or so. I don't want to be a pest.
The folks of Gilliana have, according to local history, been deeply involved in the "preparing food for long-term storage" industry since this planet got settled during the Colonial Era. Since Gilliana System is at the intersection of the Vorbataille Route and Nista Run, that has never stopped being a smart business interest.
But, despite being House VorCadriaan through and through, this economy has never gone into industrialized mass marketing. When they make cheese, natto, atchara, salami, ogi, or pickled some-kind-of-plant-part whose name I did not manage to learn, they start out with a specific amount of resources and a precisely arranged processing space; once it's all in containers and brought to market, that's all of the particular recipe there will be until the maker is ready to set up the cycle again. If you really like something, buy an extra container! Because it's not coming around again for at least a year, maybe not for a decade.

Holopedia Galactica entry:

Gilliana is a forested, temperate, moonless world with a slightly acidic tendency in its soil. It is located in the inner reaches of the Gilliana System of Cadriaan Province. Less than half of interstellar traffic that passes through this system will stop to visit Gilliana.
It is within the standard gravity range of typical inhabited planets in the galaxy.
Local days are twenty-three standard hours long.
Local years are three hundred sixty local days long.
Gilliana has a Type I atmosphere: Breathable for most species. A type I atmosphere has a proper mixture of oxygen, nitrogen and other gases so that humans and most near-human species can breathe it unassisted. These atmospheres may have contaminants that over the long term have a detrimental effect.
The axis of the planet is offset approximately twenty degrees to the orbital plane, causing moderate seasonal variation throughout the local year. Temperatures average between -5 and 29 degrees Celsius, and is in the most comfortable temperature bands for humans and many near-human species.
The sentient population of Gilliana was counted in the census of Tapani Year 12720 as 40 billion. No census has been conducted for 12730.
The planet is approximately thirty-four percent covered in land. The planet has a large continental mass on its southern hemisphere and many islands, but the southern continent has suffered moderate geological damage in the past ten years due to missile bombardment and United Confederation of Peacekeepers raids. Caution is advised when travelling by land or low-flying repulsorcraft.
The primary starport on Gilliana, which is located near the capital city of Surov on the equatorial peninsula Bisera, is a Standard Class starport. The starport is fully-staffed and equipped. Restocking services are available, and there is a small shipyard for minor repairs and modifications. Ships and crews not registered as native to Cadriaan Province or otherwise belonging to House VorCadriaan will find that prices for repairs and modifications can be up to double normal prices, and take twice as long to accomplish.
Although Gilliana does not have a natural moon, it is orbited by several artificial stations, including a transshipping station owned and operated by the Gilliana Republic Council and a shipyard which can conduct major repairs or refits on up to two starships of light freighter size or smaller.
