Publisher's summary

Dispatched as a Republic envoy to the Outer Rim planet Ord Cestus — in a bid to halt the sale of potentially deadly "bio-droids" to the ConfederacyObi-Wan Kenobi finds himself enlisted in a mission more desperate, and dangerous, than diplomatic. The once self-contained world has long since been co-opted by unscrupulous offworlders, whose plunder of a vital natural resource has enabled the rise of a powerful corporation that controls the economy. Ord Cestus's native population, the X'Ting, are now mere second-class citizens in their own society.

Enter the Jedi Knight, with news that a legal technicality has turned the tables—and the corrupt forces with a stranglehold on Ord Cestus are now at the mercy of the X'Ting. Circumstances, however, are more dire than the Republic suspected.

In the wake of a devastating plague, the X'Ting's benevolent rulers are dead, and the once tightly knit race has splintered into battling factions. Reunification can only come with the rise of new royals, whom all X'Ting are bound by blood to serve. But the eggs that will spawn those sovereigns lie out of reach, secured in a secret chamber and booby-trapped by those whose knowledge died with them in the plague. Now, to salvage a people's destiny, Obi-Wan will risk a veritable descent into hell: braving the unknown horrors in the forgotten depths of an alien world, on a perilous quest from which none who went before have ever returned.

Portal Corporation had their main facility here until the Devouring Earth destroyed the area. This forced them to move their headquarters to Peregrine Island.

The Hamidon has defeated many heroes.

Transfer Points

There is only one entrance to The Hive. In Eden there is a gate in extremely poor repair along the northern half of the far east wall (marked on the in-game map as a red locator).


The northwest corner is where Portal Corporation once had their main facility. It has since been abandoned, and is relatively free of the Devouring Earth monsters that patrol the zone.

Villain Groups

The Hive is completely under control of the Devouring Earth. At it's center, you can find Hamidon, surrounded by it's mitochondria. Thorn, Stropharia, Lattice, and Quarry monsters roam through out the zone, while Devouring Swarms patrol the skies.
