MosEisley1.jpgOverview of Mos Eisley

Mos Eisley is a bustling spaceport city located on the planet Tatooine.

[edit] Overview

Mos Eisley is a huge city. The many buildings range in size, but most living quarters are small one-floor houses. The buildings are mainly built close together with small alleyways leading to another street. Many of the people at the city are starcraft pilots who park in docking docks located throughout the city. Many people crowd the streets of Mos Eisley, including some animals carrying cargo. Quite a few vehicles are on the road, but most people walk

[edit] Points of Interest

  • Mos Eisley Cantina

Many starcraft pilots collect in this bar. It is a small building, but with plenty of space. There is the drink stand itself situated near the entrance. A single bartender manages it. Many tables are scattered throughout the establishment, and some tables put in small circle rooms connected to the main building section. By the bar table is a live band consisting of four members. The bar does not serve droids, so droid owners have to leave them outside.

  • Mos Eisley Pod Race

This event is held every once in awhile. Many citizens and visitors of Mos Eisley come to see the racing competition. Even Jabba the Hutt shows up to see it. More than ten racers compete on a track where anything goes. There are many sections to it, one part taking the racers through a cave with many rocks. Tusken Raiders have been known to camp on ridges overlooking the racetrack and shooting at the participants.

  • Watto's Shop

This shop is how young Anakin Skywalker got money to help support his poor family. The shop is run by Watto (as the name suggests). He sells spaceship parts at the store.

  • Imperial Road Stops

Many of these areas were set up when the Galactic Empire began searching for the Death Star plans on Tatooine. A four-man squad of Sandtroopers (see Storm Troopers for more info) are stationed on roads, and they stop people who pass by. They'll ask questions and ask for an identification card.

  • Docking Bays

Lots of the people at Mos Eisley are starcraft pilots. Mos Eisley welcomes them with Docking Bays set up around the city. These places allow pilots to dock their ships and travel around the city.

Qui-Gon Jinn lands on Tatooine and goes to Mos Eisley in search of spaceship parts. He winds up at Watto's shop and meets Anikan Skywalker. Qui-Gon cannot afford the needed spaceship parts, so he has a bet with Watto that Anikan will win the upcoming Pod Race. Watto accepts the bet. Anikan enters into the events and comes out as the winner, beating the past champion Sebulba.
