Post-Game Roundup: Return to Rodia

Posted in Session Summaries on March 9, 2010 by chris.w

Time: Late 6ABY, 5 months after the defeat of the Sith Brothers.

Player Characters: Geeto Islad – Andrew, (joined eventually by) Daranek Valyagar – Pudge, and Arlan (James; temp character)


Geeto Islad, in the company of his apprentice Hayliee Carran, drops out of hyperspace over Geeto’s homeworld of Rodia. Geeto intends to forcibly remove the current ruler, Grand Protector Navik “The Red”, from his place of power.

After Geeto’s meager piloting skills provide a rough landing, he and Hayliee are greeted by the Rodian port outside what’s left of their shuttle. Geeto’s Identicard carried the name “Greedo” while Hayliee went under her own name.

The lead port official, Reeda Bodo, was a childhood companion of Geeto and quickly recognized him thanks to the lightsabers that the two visitors carried.

They met later in nearby bar called the ‘Ugly Nerf’ where Reeda told Geeto of the current state of planetary affairs. He quickly realized that his initial plan of directly attacking Navik and his followers that, even if successful, would only result in causing a galactic incident with the fragile Galactic Alliance (what with the assassinating of a Head of State). As such, he decided that it would be better to exercise a measure of subtlety.

Unfortunately, a Navik loyalist was in the same bar, and rushed off to tell Navik that the sole survivor of the Islad Clan had returned to Rodia. Geeto pursued and with the aid of the Force, was able to apprehend the man. Eventually, Geeto decided to let the man return to Navik while he and Hayliee took shelter in Reeda’s home, as a guest of her father: Councilman Rannik Bodo. During the night, Daranek Valyagar and his apprentice Arlan Karrick arrived in the spaceport only to sense that Geeto was in danger.

While Geeto and Reeda sparred in the Bodo Estate’s courtyard, Navik assassins armed with Rocket Launchers attacked. Injuring Reeda in the initial blasts. Geeto fought against the attackers, where he was soon joined by Daranek and Arlan. After defeating the attackers and questioning the survivors, Geeto and Daranek decided to take the attack to Navik. Before they could do so, Reeda told them that the only way to avoid war with Rodia was for Geeto to challenge Navik to Charak’katha — a ritual fight to the death between two Rodian Clan leaders.

Two hours later, Navik in his Protector Armor and Geeto wearing only his trousers and tunic, faced off with Razor Sticks. After a brief but vicious duel, Geeto overpowered Navik with his superior strength, leaving his enemy injured and bleeding, yet still alive.

Now the Grand Protector of Rodia, Geeto declared Navik along with his most loyal followers exiled to the wastes of Rodia. He then made Rannik Bodo his successor, declaring himself to be dead in the public records.

Now an exile once again, although this time by his own choosing, Geeto left Rodia with his companions, leaving his family avenged and Navik’s dictatorship crumbled.
