Korada Monestary is the main base of operations for House Karness Muur on the surface of Aliso located about 330 km west-north-west from The Pinnacle. Once an ancient temple or palace of an unknown species, it more recently was used by the monks of the B’oamarr Order. It now serves as a formidable fortress and source of mystery.
Little is known for certain about the history of Korada Monastery, or even it’s original name, but it was immediately clear when it was located that it was ancient. While the exact date of construction is still being ascertained, it’s clear the structure dates back to at least 3,000 BBY. The main rocky spire into which a religious structure was built has roots with an as yet unknown alien species that inhabited Aliso several millennia before the Battle of Yavin. The later construction dates to about a millennium before the Battle of Yavin and bears striking similarities to known B’oamarr monastaries on Tatooine and Teth
Korada Monastery is an approximately fourteen acre compound located on a sheltered cove along Aliso’s coast. The compound consists of a main temple structure that was carved into and out of a natural rock formation, a series of smaller outbuildings, and a number of smaller rock spires that have had a number of small rooms carved into them. The entire compound is a mix of the carved stone structures of the original inhabitants and the later B’oamarr construction, the two often intermingled and built on top of each other. In front of the temple, there sits a massive paved courtyard that has been put to use as a temporary landing field while a more permanent aerospace facility is constructed nearby.
The main temple itself has been fitted as a command center and residences for the senior leadership of the House. As much of the usable space belongs to the more recent B’oamarr construction, the decor is spartan and utilitarian, but spacious. Large open areas around the entryway to the main temple are being used as storage facilities and a small vehicle garage. Scans of the facility have detected a network of tunnels and caves deeper into the rock and underground, but these areas have yet to be cleared or fully explored. While some are still being restored, the rest of the monastery complex is being used as living facilities for the lesser members of the House as well as armories and training areas. The smaller rock spires, which seemed to house a number of smaller meditation chambers, have been used to house the unit’s slave population. They were easily converted to this purpose given their smaller rooms and limited means of ingress and egress.
Karness Muur forces have taken advantage of the terrain and limited access to update the Monastery's defences to current standards. The main structure has been ringed with anti aircraft laser cannons. Blaster turret emplacements have been placed in the outer towers and at base of the main structure.In addition to the visable defenses, Muurian forces have also constructed a series of hidden defenses including pop up blaster turrets amongst the rocks, sniper emplacenents, remote observation posts on nearby outgroppings and islands, and sensor equipment in the water. While a series of fusion generators scavenged from the Clan’s former fleet have been installed to power the compound, plans are underway to harness the power of the wind and ocean tides to provide additional power.
