Nar Shaddaa on the Galaxy Map

After leaving hyperspace, your party gathers in the main hold of the Ebon Hawk:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Well, here we are... the smuggler's moon. It's the gaping maw of Nal Hutta, swallowing all the cargo and space port thugs the galaxy has to offer. Mandalorians, mercenaries, war veterans, and pilots from the Mandalorian Wars and the Jedi Civil War ended up on Nar Shaddaa, from all sides of the conflict. When the last war ended, there was no place left for them to go.
KotORII Icon Mandalore.png Mandalore: Too many Mandalorians were scattered after the war. Without purpose and without direction, most became little more than raiders.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Nar Shaddaa's a rough place and easy to get lost in... or for someone to get lost. If we wanted to keep out of sight from the Sith for a while, you couldn't pick a better spot.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What's Nal Hutta?
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: It means "glorious jewel" in Huttese, but don't let that fool you. It's the central breeding grounds of the Hutts - Nar Shaddaa orbits it. Nal Hutta's as slimy as the Hutts, lots of swamp and bloated gas. It's where those slugs reach out and grab chunks of the galaxy. Trust me, we're not going to go anywhere near the place unless we want to be washing the stink out of our clothes for the next few years.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. So there's lots of ex-soldiers on Nar Shaddaa?
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Yeah, some came looking for work running freight and cargo. Still, there's only so many ships to go around and so many workers. So others lend their weapons to the Hutts and the Exchange. It's become a prime base for raider recruitment across the galaxy.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. How hard would it be to find a Jedi here? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. How hard will it be to hide here?
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: It won't be easy. There's so much traffic on Nar Shaddaa, finding anyone on the moon's surface is going to be hard. KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Shouldn't be too hard. There's so much traffic on Nar Shaddaa, finding anyone on the moon's surface is going to be hard.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: We're going to touch down in the Refugee Sector. There's a lot more traffic there, and it's harder for people to spot you coming in... or find you once you arrive.
Awareness < 5 Awareness > 4
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: You speak of this place as if it is familiar to you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. [Awareness] You sound like you've been here before.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Anyone flying the star lanes has docked on Nar Shaddaa at least once. I wouldn't want to live there, and I doubt anyone does by choice.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What's the Refugee Sector?
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Anyone flying the star lanes has docked on Nar Shaddaa at least once. I wouldn't want to live there, and I doubt anyone does by choice.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Then let's take the Ebon Hawk in for a landing.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: I've plotted a course for the Refugee Sector, and we should touch down within the hour. Once we're down, we should finally be able to breathe easy. There's no way anyone's going to find us here.

Meanwhile, the Exchange boss Goto addresses a motley crew aboard his yacht:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Goto: Perhaps you have heard that the Jedi comes to Nar Shaddaa.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Goto: While he walks upon the smuggler's moon, he is not to be harmed. You may watch him, observe his movements, but nothing more. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Goto: While she walks upon the smuggler's moon, she is not to be harmed. Observe her, track her, but do not eclipse her movements - or I shall eclipse yours.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Hanharr: Why must we watch?! We have hunted them so long - now we must wait?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Goto: You must because one Jedi attracts others. It is the way of things.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Azanti Zhug: Goto's head is filled with madness. Zhug family hunt the galaxy, look for Jedi. Jedi finally comes here, and we can no longer hunt? There is no sense to it.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: If you wish to live, you should respect Goto's wishes.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: The handsome Jedi has run for years... he will not stay on this moon forever. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: The beautiful Jedi has run for years... she will not stay on this moon forever.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Hanharr: Hnnhr... let the Zhugs defy Goto. And after I've collected their bounty, I'll keep their heads as trophies.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Azanti Zhug: You best leave threats unspoken, Hanharr. You were carried too far from world of trees, maybe too far. I hear you not even collect life-debt from little red-maned human female. She make fool of you twice. If she had crossed Zhugs, she would be very dead now.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Hanharr: Goto or not, I will carve a bloody swatch through your entire family, Zhug - I swear it to you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Request: If Goto's vessel is no longer neutral ground, inform us so that we might initiate assassination protocols and commence firing at once.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: It would be unwise to commit violence here. Goto's order was clear.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: We are not to harm the handsome Jedi while he walks on Nar Shaddaa. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: We are not to harm the beautiful Jedi while she walks on Nar Shaddaa.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: Unless we are attacked first. We are permitted to defend ourselves.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png HK-50: Observation: Jedi follow the self-destructive path of pacifism and tolerance. They will not attack first.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: This Jedi is different.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: Yes, there is a darkness in him. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: Yes, there is a darkness in her.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: Goto told us to leave the Jedi alone, it is true.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Twin Suns: But he said nothing of the Jedi's companions.

Ebon Hawk ID Signature[edit]

Your party has disembarked from the Ebon Hawk in the Refugee Landing Pad:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Ah... the beautiful stench of decay and desperate living.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: This moon... it teems with life. It is difficult to center oneself.
KotORII Icon Visas.png Visas: Never have I been to a place so alive with the Force, yet so dead to it. The contrast is like a blade.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Welcome to Nar Shaddaa: towering buildings kilometers high and miles deep, with canyons so wide you could have a dogfight in them. Word of warning - watch where you step, or you'll fall for hours.
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Are we going to be okay on this landing pad?
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Sure, most of the landing pads around here are unclaimed... or should be. They're pretty badly maintained, so they're not safe to land on. Well, I mean, not this one, but they all have the reputation, so we should be all right. I think.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. The Ebon Hawk looks a little exposed.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Maybe a little, but landing here means we didn't have to transmit our ID signature, and you know what trouble that always brings. In fact, while we're here, we should get those signatures changed. Wouldn't make us such a target when we enter a new system.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Any problems with the docking authorities?
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: No, but I forgot to tell them we were landing. The Refugee Sector's a dead zone, no one cares too much who flies in and out of here as long as they're not carrying cargo that the Exchange or the Hutts might want a piece of.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Is this the Refugee Sector?
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Yeah, in all its glory. Don't get your hopes up from what you see here, though - as soon as we hit the main sector, that's when the smell... and the mobs... can get pretty bad.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Then let's move on.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: All right, then, let's move out. Uh, where are we headed, exactly?
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: It does not matter where we go... if what we seek is here, we shall come upon it in due time.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Uh... yeah. If you want to stay on the ship and meditate some more, don't let us stop you.

If Atton hasn't already said you should get the Ebon Hawk's ID signature changed while you're here after you comment on it looking a little exposed, he does so now:

KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Whatever we do, I say we get the Hawk's ID signature changed while we're here. Might keep us from being a target when we enter a new system.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: It is not your choice, Atton, it is his. What is it you wish to do? KotORII Icon Disciple.png Disciple: It is not your choice, Atton, it is hers. What is it you wish to do? KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: What is it you wish to do?
Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. I'm just looking for a place to lay low.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Then just being here should be enough. People in the Refugee Sector don't tend to ask too many questions, we should be safe enough.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I wouldn't mind getting some new equipment.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: There should be a central trading hub up ahead - their stock's probably not the best, but they may have some things worthwhile.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I want to find out more about this bounty on Jedi.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Well, that means finding either a bounty hunter, a ranking member of the Exchange, or someone willing to talk - none of which are too appealing. Bounty hunters and the Exchange are going to want to shoot you, and someone who is willing to talk is willing to talk to anyone, which means trouble.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: The bounty is a waste of our efforts. All that matters is the Jedi - the intentions of the thugs of this moon are of no consequence.
KotORII Icon Disciple.png Disciple: Forgive me, but these bounty hunters pose a threat to her. Their persistence is unusual - and if they are not stopped, one of them may prove lucky. KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: This bounty poses a threat to him. We do not need two beasts at our back when the Sith are enough.
KotORII Icon Visas.png Visas: I agree. They are nothing more than a distraction, but even a distraction may prove fatal at a critical moment.
KotORII Icon Visas.png Visas: We must protect her. KotORII Icon Visas.png Visas: We must protect him.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: I do not wish your support, Dark Jedi - your words only undermine my arguments.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: If you are so certain of your path then do what you will; I care not. KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: If you are so certain of your path then do what you will, servant of Atris.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: It's up to you. There's bound to be someone in the Sector willing to spill their guts for a credit or two.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. If Zez-Kai Ell is here, I want to find him.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: Finding a Jedi or anyone else touched by the Force here will be difficult... the mass of people, the rush of their emotions... it makes detection difficult.
KotORII Icon Visas.png Visas: The moon is a swarming cloak, a shadow of emotions. It is an effective shield - but if we come near the Jedi, I may be able to see him. KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: But this moon does not get any smaller while we wait. This sector is as good as any place to begin our search, so let us begin.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: You will not come near the Jedi - I will not allow it. KotORII Icon Disciple.png Disciple: If you come within striking distance of the Jedi, then the search may be over before it's begun.
KotORII Icon Visas.png Visas: You mistake my intentions. I care nothing for this Jedi. But if finding him will speed our journey, then I will aid you in your search.
KotORII Icon Handmaiden.png Handmaiden: We do not need your assistance, Dark Jedi. KotORII Icon Disciple.png Disciple: It is not my place to say whether you should aid us in our search. If you do, however, you may cause the Jedi we seek to mistake our intentions.
KotORII Icon Kreia.png Kreia: Enough. This moon does not get any smaller while we debate. This sector is as good as any place to begin our search, so let us begin.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Well, if we're going to search a moon of a few billion inhabitants for one Jedi that even our own can't sense, might as well start as soon as possible.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. Be silent and come with me. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. Let's see where our path takes us.
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: All right. If you have any questions, just ask. We should be able to leave the ship here as long as we want, no one supervises these landing pads anymore.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Ebon Hawk ID Signature
Atton mentioned that while on Nar Shaddaa, it would be a good idea to get the ID signature of the Ebon Hawk changed.

Landing Rights[edit]

As you might be coming to expect, Atton's wrong about no one supervising these landing pads anymore, as you're approached by Quello, the landing pad master:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: You! You there!
KotORII Icon Atton.png Atton: Uh-oh.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: What's with you, letting that piece of junk sink its struts into my landing pad?
Dialog
Impossible 1. [Force Persuade] I think it'll be fine where it is. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. It's a landing pad - ships land on it. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. Is there some kind of problem? KotORII Icon Dialog.png 7. I don't have time for this.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: [Success] It'll be fine where it is? Yeah, I guess you're right. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: No? Really? Thanks for the insight. And here I was, thinking you were a smart human. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: The problem is, you're on my landing pad. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: Neither do I, so stop wasting mine.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: [Failure] ...and by right, I mean you're wrong. Telling me it'll be "fine" where it is, what, you think I'm stupid?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: I got another ship coming in, and unless you want that piece of junk's hull crushed flat, you'd better move it. Got it? KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: Now, either get that piece of junk off my piece of junk, or you're going for a two-kilometer walk to the ground.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. What other ship?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: That's none of your business. All you need to know is that they're going to be firing up their quad lasers if they find your ship squatting there when they arrive.

You move closer to the dark side of the Force if you try to persuade him that the Hutts or the Exchange told you you could land here, even if you fail, but you only receive experience if you succeed:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
2. [Persuade/Lie] The Hutts told me I could land here.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. [Persuade/Lie] The Exchange told me I could land here.
Dialog
Persuade < 11 Persuade < 9
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: [Failure] Yeah? And the Hutts told me one day I'd own all of Nal Hutta. Looks like we both been told wrong. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: [Failure] Does it look like there's a blaster hole in my head? You haven't had any dealings with the Exchange - you're too green.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: Now, either get that piece of junk off my piece of junk, or you're going for a two-kilometer walk to the ground. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: You keep that piece of junk here, then you gotta pay. Cough up the credits, and there won't be any trouble.

Otherwise:

Persuade > 10 Persuade > 8
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: [Success] Yeah? Well, this is the first I've heard of it. Hutts don't do business down here - this is Exchange territory. KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: [Success] Yeah? Well, this is the first I've heard of it. Tell you what, let me check it out - if you're cleared, then you're clear, no trouble.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. They're doing business down here now, and that's all you need to know. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Times are changing. So should you. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. I don't have time for this. Stand aside. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Go ahead, contact them. I'll wait here. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. Check it out. I'll be sure to let the Exchange know you delayed me from making my drop.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: Hmmm. Ah, never mind, it's not worth the trouble.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: I got a ship that's supposed to dock on this pad any hour now. What am I gonna do? KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: I gotta tell you, though, I got another one of your ships docking here within an hour... I'm not sure what to tell them.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. Divert it to another landing pad. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. I'm sure you'll think of something. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. Let them burn their engines until we've left, then they can land. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. I couldn't care less. I'll be going now.

Otherwise:

KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
7. Get out of my way, or they'll never find your body.
KotOR Icon Dark.png Dark Side Points Gained: -1
3. The Exchange also told me if you gave me any trouble, I could kill you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: Eh, well, heh-heh! Don't let me hold you up, then, hm?
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: You call the shots... but this is gonna be trouble, I can feel it.
KotOR Icon XP.png Experience Points (XP) Received:
  • 500 Persuaded Quello the Hutts or the Exchange told you you could land here

If you fail to persuade him you were told you could land here, or you're unwilling to move closer to the dark side of the Force, it's easier to persuade him if you offer to pay for the space (although it's not necessary to pay him then and there, so don't):

Dialog
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. [Persuade] I can pay for the space... and your time.
Persuade > 3 Persuade < 4
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: [Success] Yeah? Right now, all I'm hearing is talk. How much you offering? KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: [Failure] You couldn't afford it, even if I was interested. Now clear that wreck waiting to happen off my landing pad.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 7. I've got some equipment I can trade you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: What do I look like, a flying backpack? Credits is the language around here, not scrap.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. 200 credits... when I return. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. 100 credits... when I return. Awareness < 5 Awareness > 4
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. 50 credits... when I return. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 6. [Awareness] 50 credits... and I'm guessing you can wait until I return.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: Hmmm. Well, I got your ship, and that's worth more than that if you decide to cheat me. All right, it's a deal.

Otherwise:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 1. 200 credits. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 2. 100 credits. Awareness < 4 Awareness > 3
KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. 50 credits. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 3. [Awareness] I'm guessing 50 credits ought to be enough.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: Done! Pleasure doing business with you.
KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 200 KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 100 KotOR Icon Credits.png Credits Lost: 50

If all else fails, the following is the quickest and easiest way to end this dialog:

KotORII Icon Dialog.png 4. Junk? You're lucky my ship's gracing your trash heap. KotORII Icon Dialog.png 5. You're lucky my ship's gracing your trash heap.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: Eh? My trash heap? Hnh. Fine, land there! My trash heap's all that's keeping your ship from making the final plunge. And trust me, it won't be long in coming, I promise you.
KotORII Icon Dialog.png Quello: I got some visitors booked for your space, but I'm sure the two of you can work it out when they arrive.
KotOR Icon Journal.png Journal Entry Added: Landing Rights
You managed to convince the landing pad master, Quello, to let the Ebon Hawk dock on the Refugee Sector landing pad. He said it would cause some trouble, since another ship was scheduled to dock there.

If you try to speak to Quello again before he leaves:

[Quello seems to be ignoring you.]
