Map of the Eastern Dune Sea

Sand People Territory[edit]

The entrance from Sand People Territory is on the southwest side of the Eastern Dune Sea: although it could also be entered from the Dune Sea to the northwest, the cave containing the Star Map (among other things) is clearly visible to the northeast upon entering from the territory.

Aside from the cave, the only noteworthy features of the Eastern Dune Sea upon entry are a trio of docile Dewbacks roaming the area. As ever, Czerka marker posts are dotted along the boundaries:

Danger! Turn back.

If you try to cross these boundaries:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Dune Sea: [A vast expanse of desert stretches before you, with no markers or any indications of life. It would be a deathtrap for anyone wandering aimlessly.]

Star Map: Tatooine[edit]

As you approach the cave to the northeast, you'll see a speeder parked to the right on the southeast side with the Tw'ilek hunter Komad Fortuna from Anchorhead's hunting lodge. Another hunter stands closer to the mouth of the cave to the northeast:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Hunter: I'm tired of waiting, Komad. How big can this dragon of yours be? I'm going in!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Hunter: AAAAHHHHHHH!!!

This will seem particularly foolish since even you can clearly see the size of the krayt dragon curled up within, from much further back. Needless to say, following his example results in death, so you should speak to Komad...

Desert Hunt[edit]

If you're still wearing Sand People Clothing, Komad isn't fooled:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Komad Fortuna: Why are you in robes? I know you are not of the Sand People. I have hunted too long to be fooled by mere appearances.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Star Map: Tatooine
There is a krayt dragon in the Eastern Dune Sea. The beast will have to be dealt with before any search for the Star Map can be made.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Desert Hunt
The Twi'lek hunter Komad has tracked a krayt dragon to its lair and wants assistance drawing the creature out.

You must tell him you'll help before he'll tell you how to bait the krayt dragon out of its lair:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Desert Hunt
Komad maintains that the only way to bait the krayt dragon out of its lair is to tempt it with banthas. Banthas will need to be lured into position with bantha fodder. Some of the Sand People may carry fodder, and there might also be some in the enclave. The vendor in the Anchorhead spaceport may also have some.

Of course once he does so he becomes expendable, allowing you to move closer to the dark side of the Force if you take the kill for yourself, and even closer if you cut him down:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Thanks for the information. I don't need you anymore.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Komad Fortuna: What do you mean, human? This task is better attempted together. You won't leave now, will you?
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
1. Leave? No, I'm going to take the kill for myself.
KotOR Icon Dialog.png Komad Fortuna: I have spent many years following in the memory of my father. I can't step away from a battle like this. No words can express my distaste for you. If you intend to take what I worked for, you will have to fight for it.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
1. Then I will cut you down!
KotOR Icon Dialog.png 2. Then we will continue with the hunt. KotOR Icon Dialog.png 3. Bah! Then you are no use to me. I'm leaving.

Komad is dead, but he already told you how to bait the krayt dragon out of its lair. You'll have to lure banthas into position by tempting them with bantha fodder. Some of the Sand People may carry fodder, and there might also be some in the enclave. The vendor in the Anchorhead spaceport may also have some.

A herd of three bantha now appears to the southwest. If you don't already have it, bantha fodder can be found in the rag pile to the left of the two banthas at the entrance to the Sand People Enclave, on the remains of ranged Elite Warriors in the Dune Sea, or as a last resort it's sold for a single credit by the merchant Mic'Tunan'Jus Orgu in Anchorhead's spaceport. Even if Komad is still alive, you don't need to speak to him:

Once you have fodder, simply approach any of the bantha and interact with them:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Bantha: [This bantha perks up as you approach, obviously attracted to the smell of the fodder you are carrying. The whole herd falls in step.]
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Desert Hunt
As Komad said to do, you have several banthas following you, lured by the scent of fodder. You must lead them to the mouth of the krayt dragon lair.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 100 Banthas lured by the scent of fodder

However, you're ambushed by four Elite Warriors who must be killed before continuing. All are armed with Light Repeating Blasters but use Gaffi Sticks in melee range, and they receive bonuses depending on your character level:

Character level Strength Vitality
12-14 +6 +60
> 14 +10 +100

Three are also armed with Grenades, the most dangerous of which is the one at the left end of their line to the southwest: those entangled by Adhesive Grenades suffer -4 Dexterity and cannot use Force powers for 15 seconds, and make perfect targets for the grenades of the others.

Once all have been killed, interact with any bantha again to complete the journey to the mouth of the cave. If Komad is still alive:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Komad Fortuna: Good job! Come talk to me!

The banthas bait the krayt dragon out of its lair, where it's killed by the mines that Komad laid.

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Desert Hunt
The hunt was successful and the krayt dragon is dead. Whatever might be hidden in the depths of its lair is now yours to claim.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Star Map: Tatooine
The krayt dragon has been killed. Whatever might be hidden in the depths of its lair is now yours to claim.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 400 Killed krayt dragon

If Komad has already been killed, then you receive your prize from the remains of the dragon (which resist 5 damage and have 15 Vitality):

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Krayt Dragon

Otherwise, you'll always receive a pearl from Komad:

KotOR Icon Dialog.png Komad Fortuna: It is done, and the great beast is dead. To my shame, I denied him a final fight, but I will honor his memory to make amends. I thank you for your aid, human. You have earned a share of the victory, such as it is.
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Komad Fortuna
  • Krayt Dragon Pearl

If you tell him you want more, you can move closer to the dark side of the Force by cutting him down for a second pearl:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -2
1. Then I will cut you down!
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received: KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Komad Fortuna
  • Krayt Dragon Pearl

Otherwise, you should be content with one:

Once he leaves, you may encounter him again in the Czerka landing port on Kashyyyk if you haven't already been there and sided with Freyyr. Now that you have a pearl, if the Sand People chieftain is still alive then you can return to the Sand People enclave and give one to him to prove yourself Worthy of History (and you can kill him afterwards to get it back again).

Krayt Dragon Cave[edit]

Just inside the mouth of the cave is a chewed human corpse on the southeast side to the right, beyond which is a pile of rubble:

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Chewed Human Corpse KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Rubble

Further inside the cave is a chewed Twi'lek corpse on the same side, with another pile of rubble on the northwest side opposite:

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Chewed Twi'lek Corpse KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Rubble

Right at the back of the cave to the northeast is the Star Map. As you approach it, Calo Nord appears outside the cave if you haven't encountered him since escaping Taris, challenging you as you leave, or Darth Bandon does so if he hasn't been encountered since leaving the planet on which your third Star Map was found.

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Star Map: Tatooine
You have acquired the Star Map from the lair of the krayt dragon on Tatooine.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 2000 Acquired Star Map from the lair of the krayt dragon on Tatooine

If Calo Nord or Darth Bandon have appeared behind you outside the cave, it's time to engage them...

Quest for the Star Forge[edit]

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: A Quest for the Star Forge
You've discovered another ancient Star Map in the Dune Sea of Tatooine. As before, the map is incomplete. But each map you find fills in more missing pieces of the puzzle. Hopefully, once you find all the Star Maps they will give you the location of the Star Forge.
KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Star Map
  • Star Map: Tatooine

You have recorded the coordinates from the Star Map on Tatooine into a datapad.

The Dune Sea is to the northwest of the Eastern Dune Sea, while Sand People Territory is to the southwest if you have unfinished business in the enclave: you can then return to Ebon Hawk to more quickly return to west Anchorhead or leave Tatooine.

Bastila's Mother[edit]

Once you and Bastila have spoken to her mother Helena in Anchorhead's cantina, a tattered equipment pack appears in the north corner of the cave:

KotOR Icon Item(s) Received.png Item(s) Received: Tattered Equipment Pack
  • Holocron

This holocron has been cracked and worn by the sands and wind, but is still marginally operational. When activated, it shows the holographic image of a middle-aged human man and appears to have been used as a means to record his personal thoughts over many years.

You can now ask Bastila if she'll give it back to her mother:

KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Bastila's Mother
Bastila's father's holocron has been found out in the desert, still intact. Bastila is unsure, however, whether she intends to give it back to her mother. Part of her thinks she should keep it for herself... she and her father were close. Either way, it is probably a good idea to return to her mother at the cantina.

Dune Sea[edit]

The exit to the southeast corner of the Dune Sea is on the northwest side of the Eastern Dune Sea.
