Due to its complex orbital dance with Zebulon Prime, “Zeb Beta” loses one day of sunlight every two months, dropping the temperature of the planet 50 degrees and treating the inhabitants to 75 hours of darkness and snowy chill – a fact of life that Beta denizens have always called simply, the Darkness. Zebulon Beta is otherwise a temperate, fertile, and rather resource-rich world, similar in climate to Dantooine. Due to their ecological foresight, this colonized world enjoys an unusually pure fresh water supply. Moreover, the world is also rich in mineral content. Even though most of the minerals are highly dispersed and difficult to harvest, the side effect is atypically rich soil and a booming agricultural industry.

Locations

  • Jolus: A handful of settlements are scattered around the Zebulon Beta, but it has only one large enough to be considered a city: Jolus. It’s home to a number of warehouses for storing agricultural goods, the planet’s largest markets, and its only starport.
  • Unified Force Academy: Located on Zebulon Beta, the Unified Force Academy is one of the many small, independent Jedi academies dispersed across the galaxy. The Zebulon academy largely teaches a view of the Force which poses that there is no light or dark side to the Force – only the Unifying Force.
