Map of East Central courtyard

West Central Courtyard[edit]

With the door to the West Central courtyard behind you, a walkway leads east to the southwest corner of the East Central courtyard, where three Sith soldiers confront three Republic soldiers:

The Sith soldiers move north, to the right of the door to the general store in the northwest wall, while the Republic soldiers go east, to the southeast corner of the courtyard's south pool.

You need to exit the courtyard to the north and turn east to find the Republic Enclave (the Visitor's Hotel is to the west), while the corridor beyond the door in the east wall of the courtyard leads to Ahto East: a Shady Rodian selling Pazaak cards stands to the right by the east wall, while another named Hulas stands alone on the south side of the courtyard by the ocean.

You can speak to the southernmost Sith, but those to the northwest and northeast merely comment:

You can also speak to the southernmost Republic soldier, while those to the west and northeast also merely comment:

A protocol droid wanders around the west, north and east sides of the south pool, while security and cleaning droids also patrol the area:

I cannot render assistance, citizen. Move along. Beep beep beep-oop!

Another Republic soldier wanders the courtyard, while two friendly Selkath stand by the north pool on the right, by the east wall:

Tyvark's Shop[edit]

In the northwest wall of the southern courtyard is a door to the General Store, an octagonal room with an assistant droid in its northeast corner.

Beep beep beep-oop!

A Republic soldier is concluding his business with Tyvark Luowan, the Rodian proprietor standing in a kiosk in the southwest wall, when you enter:

After being appointed Arbiter in the Sunry Murder Trial:

Republic Enclave[edit]

Exit the courtyard to the north and open the door to the east to the Republic Embassy. A security droid patrols the corridor beyond, which leads to a lobby at its east end. The door to the rest of the embassy is in the north wall:

[Republic security clearance is required to enter.]

Helmeted Republic soldiers flank it to either side, but speaking to them isn't useful:

Fortunately, their 'diplomatic corp' is standing just to the right of this door...

Republic Embassy[edit]

Roland Wann, the official representative of the Republic Embassy on Manaan, stands behind a desk in the northeast corner of the lobby. Speak to him:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Roland Wann: Welcome to Manaan. I am Roland Wann. As the official representative of the Republic Embassy on this planet, I am here to help all citizens of the Republic should they require aid.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Republic Embassy
You finally managed to find the Republic Embassy on Manaan.

Although he'll answer questions about Ahto city, you want him to help you with your mission from the Jedi Council:

He can't be persuaded to tell you what he knows unless you do something for him first...

Star Map: Manaan[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Star Map: Manaan
Roland Wann, the Republic diplomat on Manaan, has indicated that he may know something about ancient ruins on Manaan. He first requires you to retrieve a data module stolen by the Sith and bring it back to him before he'll tell you anything.

Perhaps if you asked him about this, he could tell you how you might accomplish this.

You have no choice but to help him...

Mission for the Republic[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Star Map: Manaan
Roland Wann, the Republic diplomat on Manaan, has indicated that he may know something about ancient ruins on Manaan. He first requires you to retrieve a data module stolen by the Sith and bring it back to him before he’ll tell you anything.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Mission for the Republic
You have spoken to Roland Wann, the representative of the Republic Embassy on Manaan. He says that he may have information about the Star Map, but will only tell you what he knows if you retrieve the remains of a Republic Probe droid lost recently to the Sith. The droid has sensitive data recordings of its mission outside of Ahto City and the Republic wants it back before the Sith are able to decrypt it. To do this, you will need to enter the Sith Embassy.

He has said that there are 3 ways to get into the Sith base:

1) You can interrogate a Sith prisoner who was found snooping around the Republic Embassy. He knows a pass code that allows him entry to the Sith base.

2) You can decrypt some captured Sith passcards and use them to open the door to the base.

3) You can use the key Roland gave you and force your way into the Sith controlled hangar and fly outside Ahto City into the Embassy through the rear entrance. The hangar is located at the west end of the Ahto City Docking Bay.

Once you have entered the Sith base, retrieve the data module and return it to Roland.
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Roland Wann
  • Sith Hangar Key
  • Republic Enclave Key
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Roland Wann: Have you managed to retrieve the data from our droid in the Sith base?
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. No I have not.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Roland Wann: Time is a critical factor. We cannot allow the Sith to decode that data recording or our operations on Manaan would be compromised.

With the Sith hangar key, you can return to Ebon Hawk then travel from there to the west end of the docking bay, open the door to their Private Hangar and fight (or sneak) your way aboard a transport to the Secondary Entrance of the Sith base.

A key card to the Sith Reserved Hangar in Ahto City.

Although more experience is received due to combat, this entrance is also mined and one of your party needs Awareness rank 10 to detect this if you don't want to trigger anything.

Otherwise, you need to decrypt a captured Sith passcard or interrogate the Sith prisoner for the pass code to the main entrance in Ahto East, both of which require you to go deeper into the Republic enclave. The Republic enclave key now opens the door in the north wall.

An access key to the outer doors of the Republic Enclave in Ahto City.

Beyond is a bareheaded Republic soldier working to the left by the three metal boxes at the corner of the room as it turns west:

To the north is a control terminal to the right of two energy cages, the left of which contains the Sith prisoner. Another helmeted Republic soldier stands around the corner to the west.

Passcard[edit]

Beyond the door in the east wall is the computer room, where you can try decrypting Sith passcards. A Republic technician approaches and speaks to you enter:

You can use the large computer in the southeast corner to decrypt a Sith passcard:

The final segments of the six terminal sequences are determined as follows:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Large Computer: CARD REPROGRAMMING...
SUCCESS
[CONTINUE]
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Large Computer
  • Sith Base Passcard

A passcard used to enter the Sith Base in Ahto City.

If you speak to the technician again:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Republic Technician: Hey, great! You sliced the encryption on those cards! They change the codes regularly, so you'll have to use it pretty soon or not at all.

Exit to the Ahto East Courtyard and the passcard can be used to open the door to the Sith Base.

Prisoner[edit]

The Sith prisoner is being held in the energy cage on the left by the north wall.

*groan* Uhh...

An intelligence officer stands nearby. Beyond a door in the west wall is a short corridor ending in another door labelled Restricted Access.

[Republic security clearance is required to enter.]

To interrogate the prisoner, speak to the intelligence officer:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Interrogate him. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 4. Let's try something else.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Prisoner: Wh... What do you want? KotOR Icon Dialog.png Sith Prisoner: Uhhh.... *groan*

His mental state changes as you interrogate him: each of the three dialog options and successful Persuade checks from three subsequent options for each will get him closer to the threshold at which he'll tell you what you want to know.

State Option(s)
+1 KotOR Icon Dialog.png 1. Relax. I'm not here to threaten you.
+2 Hard 1. [Persuade] We're the only ones who will take you in now. Medium 2. [Persuade] If you talk, we can make it worth your while. Hard 3. [Persuade] I don't want to hurt you unless you make me.
+2 KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. We know about your companion.
+2 Medium 1. [Persuade/Lie] We don't really need you. Your companion will tell us what we need to know anyway. Hard 2. [Persuade/Lie] If you don't tell us, he will suffer. Easy 3. [Persuade/Lie] Perhaps we would give you back to the Sith, but keep him.
+3 KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Maybe we should do something about Tela.
+2 Medium 1. [Persuade] We could make life easy for both of you here in the Republic. Easy 2. [Persuade] Talk or something may happen to her. Easy 3. [Persuade/Lie] We have her already. She may be spared if you talk.

Exactly +9 is required, and the final +2 must come from success of one of the three easy Persuade checks. If this is exceeded, he blanks out:

The next time you interrogate him you start from zero:

There are obviously numerous ways to reach the threshold while finishing with a successful easy Persuade check, but some are easier than others:

  • If medium Persuade checks have good chance of success (ideally 100%), then mentioning Tela (+3) and success of the three Persuade checks that follow (+6) will achieve it.
  • If only easy Persuade checks have good chance of success (ideally 100%), then mentioning his companion (+2), convincing him he'll be given back to the Sith (+2), saying you'll try something else and then mentioning Tela (+3) and convincing him to talk to spare her or something may happen to her (+2) will achieve it.
  • If even easy Persuade checks have minimum 40% chance of success, then getting +4 from non-persuasive options (for example, mentioning his companion (+2), saying you'll try something else then mentioning his companion again (+2) ) before mentioning Tela (+3) and convincing him to talk to spare her or something may happen to her (+2) will achieve it: there's still 64% chance that one of the two easy Persuade checks will succeed.

Persuade options are removed once taken, regardless of success or failure, until you inject him with the neutralizing agent and start over with a new dose of truth serum, or stop talking to him. Once the threshold is reached:

Exit to the Ahto East Courtyard and give the pass code to the Sith diplomat in the lobby of the Sith Base and he'll open the door for you.

Submersible[edit]

Once you've infiltrated the Sith base and retrieved the remains of the Republic Probe droid, return and speak to Roland Wann agsin:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Mission for the Republic
Roland Wann, the representative of the Republic on Manaan, has told you that the Republic has made a secret base underwater near the source of kolto emissions to study and eventually synthesize kolto. They ran across some mysterious ruins that may be related to the Star Map. Unfortunately, something happened down there at the base, and all contact was lost.

Roland has given you access to a submersible to go down to the base and find out what happened. Hopefully, this will lead to one of the Star Maps as well.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 600 Given access to a submersible to go down to the base
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Roland Wann
  • Submersible Bay Key
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Star Map: Manaan
The Republic has constructed a secret facility at the bottom of the Hrakert Rift with the purpose of secretly harvesting and synthesizing kolto. Roland Wann has offered the use of a Republic submersible to travel down to the ocean floor so that you may investigate. He mentioned that the Republic has run across some sort of old ruin near the Rift itself.

Key to the Submarine Bay in the Republic Enclave in Ahto City.

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Roland Wann: When you are ready to explore the Hrakert Rift, enter the Republic base. In the kolto packing room there is a door leading to the Republic submarines. The sub will have a course to the Hrakert Scientific Research facility charted in. It will take you to the Hrakert Rift. I wish you luck on your quest. Hopefully a Jedi can succeed where so many others have failed.

If you speak to him again after using the submersible, but before finding out what happened down there:

You can now return to the Selkath Nilko Bwaas in Ahto West's mercenary enclave to tell him about the Republic Hiring Mercenaries, completing that quest, although it may be more convenient for a light side character to do so after exploring the Hrakert Rift and finding the Star Map there (provided you don't get banned from the planet afterwards).

Beyond a door to the west of the energy cage that contained the Sith Prisoner is a short corridor to another door labelled Restricted Access, beyond which is the submersible bay. The submersible docked there can be used to take you down to the Republic's secret research station on the sea floor:

Visitor's Hotel[edit]

Exit the courtyard to the north, open the door to the west and continue down the corridor to open the door of the visitor's hotel. The lobby beyond is patrolled by a cleaning droid and a security droid, while the proprietor Ignus stands behind the reception desk along the north wall:

The hallway exiting the lobby to the south has two doors on both sides, leading to four rooms. The northwest room is inaccessible, while the southeast room is locked.

Security Door Unlock 28 (8) Bash Resist 5 Vitality 20

Inside is a footlocker by the west wall, to the left of the door.

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Footlocker

The northeast and southwest rooms are sealed:

[A note reads: This room is sealed by order of the Selkath High Court. Only court appointed arbiters may enter.]

This changes once you've been appointed Arbiter in the Sunry Murder Trial, and Ignus can be questioned further.

Ignus the Hotel Owner[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Ignus the Hotel Owner
Ignus is the proprietor of the hotel that the murder of Elassa occurred at. He told you that he heard the blaster shot go off, then saw Sunry hobbling away from the scene of the crime.

If you ask Ignus about Sunry and Elassa, then when you return to Ahto West you can ask Elora or Sunry about the affair. After asking him to tell you what he saw the night of the murder, you can ask him if the blaster shot could have gone off after Sunry left:

Persuasive skill alone won't change his testimony, and even with a bribe it's still hard:

Hard 2. [Persuade] I could pay you 200 credits to say it.
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 200

If you can dominate minds then he agrees to change his testimony... although he reneges on this at the trial:

High (Dominate Mind) 3. [Force Persuade] You will testify Sunry left before the shot.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Ignus the Hotel Owner
You have managed to persuade Ignus, the hotel owner, to tell the court that he saw Sunry leaving before the shot went off.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Persuaded Ignus to tell that he saw Sunry leaving before the shot went off

If you speak to him again after the trial:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ignus: Shame about Sunry getting convicted like that. I guess he really did kill Elassa after all. KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ignus: I guess Sunry didn't kill the Sith woman after all. Could have sworn he left after the shot though... KotOR Icon Dialog.png Ignus: There, you got what you wanted: Sunry's free. Now don't ever mention my part in this again!

Firith Me the Pazaak Player[edit]

The northeast room is now unsealed, and within it there's a footlocker by the west wall, to the left of the door:

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Footlocker
  • Credits (100)

It also contains Firith Me, a human male Pazaak player, who can be asked what he saw on the night of the murder:

Like Ignus, he can also be asked what he knows about Sunry and Elassa...

Elora, Sunry's Wife[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Elora, Sunry's Wife
You have heard rumors that Sunry may have been cheating on his wife... Perhaps you should ask Elora about this.

When you return to Ahto West you can ask Elora or Sunry about the affair. You can also query his reference to Elassa's Sith Master:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Firith Me the Pazaak Player
Firith was staying at the hotel when the murder occurred. He claims he saw nothing and that that's all you'll get out of him.

It's difficult to persuade him to tell you what he saw (although it's easier with credits), but while it's easy using the Force it also moves you closer to the dark side:

Hard 1. [Persuade] What did you see?
Medium 2. [Persuade] Maybe if I tossed in 100 credits? Low (Affect Mind) 3. [Force Persuade] You know you want to tell me.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Firith Me: [Success] Since you put it that way... KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
Firith Me: [Success] You know, I think I could trust you. Heck, I don't know why I shouldn't tell you.
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 100
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Firith Me the Pazaak Player
Firith told you he once brushed up against Elassa and her cloak fell open to reveal that she was carrying a lightsaber - the mark of a Jedi! It would seem that Elassa may have been a Dark Jedi allied with the Sith.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Persuaded Firith Me to tell you what he saw

Gluupor the Rodian[edit]

The southeast room is also unsealed, but it only contains the Rodian Gluupor:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Gluupor the Rodian
Gluupor was staying in one of the rooms of the hotel when the murder took place. He says that he had nothing to do with the crime, ESPECIALLY not with anything in Elassa's room.

He can always be persuaded to tell you about Elassa's room, although you receive no experience if you use the Force:

You do not need to give him credits:

Always 1. [Persuade] Did someone pay you to do something in that room Gluupor? Always 2. [Persuade] How about if I give you 100 credits to tell me?
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 100
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Gluupor the Rodian
Gluupor confessed that the Sith made him plant the medal as evidence against Sunry after the murder occurred. It would seem that the Sith are indeed trying to point blame at Sunry.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Gluupor confessed that the Sith made him plant the medal

Sunry Murder Trial[edit]

After speaking to anyone in the hotel, a mysterious man appears in the corridor outside. When you leave, he speaks to you, advising you to seek information from both the Sith and the Republic if you want to get to the bottom of the murder:

Handily, the Republic Embassy is on the other side of the hall to the east, where you can question the diplomat Roland Wann about the Sunry case:

Once you've agreed to undertake a Mission for the Republic for him, you can access the computer room to the northeast and use the large computer in its southeast corner to slice the Republic system and access its restricted data archives:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Sunry Murder Trial
As Arbiter you must defend Sunry to the best of your ability. However, you have found a data recording that clearly shows Sunry killing the Sith woman Elassa. Can you continue your role of Arbiter impartially, knowing that your client has committed such a crime?
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received: KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Large Computer
  • Murder Recording

A recording of an older man murdering a young Sith woman.

You can return to the prison in Ahto West to confront Sunry and get him to admit to his crime, and even get him sentenced to death if you present it to the court. If you admit your crime to Roland Wann:

East Courtyard[edit]

The corridor beyond the door in the east wall of the courtyard leads to Ahto East, where the Sith base and swoop racing can be found. The shady Rodian standing by the wall in the southeast corner of the courtyard sells Pazaak cards, but you'll get nothing else from him:

Shady Rodian
Buy Item Cost Amount Buy Item Cost Amount
Pazaak Card +/-1 200 1 Pazaak Card +3 50 3
Pazaak Card +/-2 150 1 Pazaak Card +4 25 3
Pazaak Card +/-3 125 2 Pazaak Card -3 25 2
Pazaak Card +1 100 2 Pazaak Card -4 25 2
Pazaak Card -1 100 1 Pazaak Card +5 12 4
Pazaak Card +2 75 2 Pazaak Card -5 12 4
Pazaak Card -2 75 1 Pazaak Card +6 5 5
Pazaak Card +/-6 50 3 Pazaak Card -6 5 5

The Rodian named Hulas standing alone on the south side of the courtyard may turn out to be the really shady one...
