alcaldemb Posted April 14, 2005 Share Posted April 14, 2005 I was thinking about the similarities between Star Wars planets, the story, civilizations, etc and people throughout history. I was looking at some of the similarities between Star Wars and Dune, such as the Trade Federation and CSA being much like the Spacing Guild and the Ixians in Dune. This got me thinking about a possible new world/civilization/organization to put in Star Wars based on a group in history. The Radhanites/Radanites are basically what the Spacing Guild in Dune is based off of, a neutral intermediary between all the houses that everyone can trade through and are the only navigators that know the way. The Radhanites were a group a trading guild that had four routes from Spain to China, and Radhan is sometimes identified with the Iranian Rad Han for "he who knows the way". Maybe as a precursor to the Trade Federation or a more benevolent CSA there could be a Radan planet or organization that is a chief facilitator of trade between powers, and whose world serves as a major trade nexus where all cultures and political groups interact. Just a thought everybody, if anyone else has some ideas it would be nice to hear. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
