Whisper Base

A secret imperial installation in the jungles of Onderon, Whisper Base is the listening post of Moff Dardarno, who is secretly spying on the local Imperial Garrison Commander, Admiral Corlen. Whisper Base is a secret, even to the Imperials itself; completely off the books, the outpost is manned exclusively by Imperial soldiers reported dead and vehicles reported destroyed.

The base maintains a small garrison of Stormtroopers and Imperial Army personnel, a Lambda class shuttle, a squadron of speeder bikes and two AT-STs. Numbers are small enough that a small strike team of Rebel operatives should be able to infiltrate and capture the base quietly.

As a result of Operation Stolen Whisper, Whisper base is now under the control of the Rebel Alliance and houses Obsidian Squadron, and so far Moff Dardarno is completely oblivious to this fact.

SigInt Array and Computer Systems

  • The Signals Intelligence Array provides detailed information on the situation on Onderon and its garrison commander, Admiral Corlen. It can be re-tasked to other targets however.
  • The Computer Systems (the security of which have been bypassed by Kelleth) detail the operations of Whisper Base. Access to the Whisper Base Computer Records will allow players to gain a Boost Dice when pretending that Whisper Base is still under Imperial Control. It also gives the party access to a high powered computer system.

Whisper Base was destroyed by Obsidian Squadron when they had to relocate to a new world.
