Name: Corellia Digital Headquarters

Intent: This accomplishes a two-fold task for me: First and foremost, it establishes a base of operations for Corellia Digital.Second and as an added benefit of the first, it establishes a residence for my Corellian Jedi in the Corellian System that he considers to have always been his home.
Classification: Corporate Headquarters (includes a Computer Research & Design Facility and a Residential Apartment)
Affiliation: Corellia Digital (Sor-Jan Xantha)
Description: The building, originally constructed as a cliff-side mansion, is comprised of four levels; two above ground and two below. The roof is reinforced, allowing it to serve as a landing pad for shuttles, though larger craft such as transports or light freighters would have to land on the adjacent docking bay where materials are brought in and where product is shipped out of.
• Corporate Administration (ground floor): Offices and board rooms, which offer stunning views of the Boiling Sea and surrounding coast. Most of the storyboarding and other non-engineering work for games is done here. The play testing room is also located on this floor.
• R&D Facility (basement and sublevels): Recessed into the cliff and the foundation of the building, the R&D facility doubles as the primary manufacturing unit for Corellia Digital is where everything comes together. Alloy and wire become hologram generators. Datacards and antennae become HoloNet receivers.
• Residential Apartment (upper floor): Being both a youngling and a Jedi Knight can be difficult to reconcile. On the one hand, Sor-Jan wants to play. On the other, he must be selfless and meditative. Particularly when he's teaching at the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4, there seems a great of pressure for him to be more the Knight than the Kid. The residence on Drall allows him an opportunity to get away from the expectations of his title and return to his roots. As such, the apartment incorporates as varied a style as the small Anzat does. There's a game room for him to play, as well as a library of obscure and arcane historical texts in which he can find quiet and meditate.
History: In 34 BBY, when Corellia Digital was still a relatively young company, benefiting from a "dotcom rush" with the development and introduction of a revolutionary datacard, one of the principle engineers used his earnings to carve out a home on the pastoral world of Drall. Intended to do much of his own research and development there, he built a mansion from the ground up, and an enviable computer lab from the ground below. Over time, the mansion fell into the possession of the company, and was used notably to host the annual shareholders meeting. The computer labs were used to highlight and showcase developments and prototypes during those annual meetings, but the building itself faded into relative obscurity among the company's other holdings. In the aftermath of Corellia's destruction, it became the only Corellia Digital facility off-world that wasn't just a storefront. Today, the building serves as the new headquarters for Corellia Digital, and has become a leading employer in the town of Meccha.
