Tarnoonga is a planet in the Outer Rim territories that is popular among outlaw. The planet itself is completely covered by water with an occasional mountain breaking through the ocean’s surface. This allowed the pirates to hide because the mountains were so few, it was difficult to find them on the planet unless you knew exactly where to go.
The water contains many miridons, large dragon like creatures, which provides additional protection against any would be invaders.
The primary Bando Gora base of operations is located in one of these mountains.
