Structure Name: Silver Rest – The Shining Light of Kashyyyk
Classification: Jedi Temple
Affiliation: Order of the Silver Jedi
While the area is located near the mountains, and sheltered by the forests of Kashyyyk, it is still fairly easy to find. It can be reached by ship, a rather long mountain hike, or a walk through the woods.
Interior: The common areas in and around the temple is open to visitors, though each visitor is required to check in at the lobby/greeting center first. Closed areas like the dormitories and library/archives are normally only accessible by members of the Silver Order, or by visitors with explicit permission from SJO Leadership.
While quaint in appearance, the campus area is wired with robust full-spectrum monitoring systems and bioscanners. These systems, as well as the temple’s terminals, local network, archives, and mainframe are protected from intrusion by socket guards, Mithril Security Software, and an installation of a Atropos security AI unit (Herf) based within the adjacent Ranger base.
As all wood constructions are common throughout the campus, the area is decked out with automatic fire suppression systems. To protect against both aggressive local fauna and airborne pathogens, all buildings are equipped with osmotic field generators.
The campus possesses no dedicated anti-air defenses of its own, though it is protected from orbital bombardment and airstrikes by a DefenStar 5000 planetary shield, maintained by the Ranger base.
The security detail for the temple complex and campus grounds consists primarily to a cadre of Jedi Temple Guards, supplemented by units of YVH-2 battle droids on the ground, and DRK-1 probe droids in the air. Of course, at all times, the campus is full of combat capable Jedi and other trained Force Users.
Silver Rest was created in the same same aesthetic as the original Silver Temple on Voss, featuring clean lines and an eco-friendly design. In order to preserve the natural splendor of Kashyyyk, it was important to create a new temple campus that blended in with the surrounding wilderness.The main temple structures were made to mirror the shape of the mountains on the horizon. The exterior is sleek and minimal, while the interior features an abundance of natural wood details to give a nod to their forest location.
The temple and surrounding campus were made with peace and clarity in mind, a place for the Silver Jedi to learn, train, and live.
POINTS OF INTEREST
Campus Features (surrounding the temple itself):
Silver Landing (Hangar bay) – Located adjacent to the temple, there are multiple platforms andample space for ships and transports to dock.
Living Quarters – There are dormitory style living quarters available for members of the Silver Jedi, each simple, comfortable, and functional. The rooms are kept quite sparse, but each person is free to make the space their own. There are also rooms available for guests of the Order, these rooms are slightly larger and feature more in the way of style and decor.
Temple Garden – Located near the lake on the western portion of the campus. A serene place to rest and relax. The landscape is meticulously maintained by volunteers, and features a number of flowering plants to provide a bit of color year-round. There are shady trees and benches, as well as a very nice place to swim -- when the water is warm enough. There are also a few greenhouses and raised beds for growing produce. At the water’s edge, there is a small memorial dedicated to the members of the Silver Jedi that were unable to make the journey to Kashyyyk.
Antarian Rangers HQ – A separate base reserved for the Rangers. This structure has been built right into the side of a mountain featuring several subterranean levels. (A separate sub will be completed to detail the defenses and military aspects).
Great Hall – A wide open space with airy cathedral ceilings. The hall is usually the first area to greet guests and visitors to the temple, and is decorated to display the banners of the Silver Jedi. This is a perfect place for social gatherings, banquets, and other faction events.
Conference Rooms, Offices, and Temple Chambers – There are a number of small conference rooms for meetings and study. Offices for members of the Silver Assembly and the Grandmaster are located in this wing as well. Currently, the largest space here is reserved for very important business - generally the meetings of the Assembly or hosting foreign guests.
Archives - The contents of the archives from Voss were brought here to Kashyyyk, to allow the SJO to continue to learn from the texts and artifacts of the Jedi that have been collected throughout the years. There is also a special vault here for storing holocrons.
Meditation Rooms - There are several quiet spaces available for mediation. Along with the more conventional style rooms that feature minimal details and dimmed lights, there are also some that allow in natural light and have a lovely view of the Kashyyyk wilderness.
Medical Quarters - A place for the wounded to rest and recover. There is a skilled team of medical professionals and Jedi healers that make up the staff. Counseling services are also available for those in need. This area features standard hospital style rooms for treatment, a recovery ward (with private rooms available), and a healing hall for those that would like to spend some restful time meditating in the presence of healing crystals.
Training Grounds - A large courtyard outside, and a few indoor training gymnasiums.
Following their move from Voss, the Silver Jedi needed a new Temple on their new Capital World. They came to settle in a large clearing that faced the mountains. It was clear that this area would offer protection and the calm seclusion that they needed to start fresh. With blessings from the native Wookies, the Order of the Silver Jedi began construction right away. This place was made in a similar aesthetic to their temple on Voss, a nod to their past. However, the Silver Jedi created this place with their future in mind – they wanted it to be a shining light for the sector and for the Jedi in general.
This would be their new home.
