Palpatine's secret storehouses

"A private rat's nest. Sounds like him."
Han Solo

Mount Tantiss was a mountain on the planet Wayland that housed one of Emperor Palpatine's secret storehouses.



Layout of the Mount Tantiss storehouse

Mount Tantiss was originally the site of an Old Republic fort that was reactivated by Palpatine during the Clone Wars.[1] The storehouse contained objects and both trinkets of unspeakable evil and mementos from the conquests of the Empire. His most private treasures were hidden in a massive labyrinth designed by Garrbo V'Droz in the mountain's bottom chamber. The mountain also held the twenty-thousand Spaarti cloning cylinders which were used by Grand Admiral Thrawn to create a crew of clones for his new Katana fleet Dreadnaughts, and the schematics for the cloaking devices that he would install on those very same ships and would make their way into much of the Imperial Fleet as time went by.

The mountain and its storehouse were guarded by a Dark Jedi referred to as "the Guardian" until he was (presumably) killed by the insane clone Joruus C'baoth.

The storehouse was destroyed by Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa Solo, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, and Han Solo after Luke and Mara Jade killed the clones Luuke Skywalker and Joruus C'baoth. Years later, an edited version of the Caamas Document was found there by Leia, thus instigating the Caamas Document Crisis.
