I have slowly been reading through the Sourcebook, from cover to cover. Man, this is something I should have done decades ago when I first got the book. There's LOTS of good stuff in this book.

I just finished reading about the rancor. This may have been changed with with EU, but I like what was written.

No one really knows where the rancor came from. No one knows its home planet. The thing was in the hold of a ship that crashed on Tatooine. Some Jawas inspected the crash then sold the salvage rights to one of Jabba's lackeys.

When the rancor starting tearing them up--the party from Jabba's castle--one of the screaming gamoreans starting yelling, "Rancor! Rancor!" It was referring to one of the Gamor demons.

Bib Fortuna, the Twi-lek, rescued what was left of the party and gave the rancor to Jabba as a present on the Hutt's birthday. Jabba loved it and made Fortuna his major domo.

No other "rancor" is known to exist.

Yeah, The Courtship of Princess Leia introduced a planet of rancor-riding witches, so I understand.

Yeah, I read that, back when it was out in hardback. I don't remember much except for a planet of Rancors, the introduction to the Witches of Dathomir, and a cool scene where a Nebulon B was falling into the atmosphere of the planet, and Han, in the Falcon, escapes.
