STAR WARS: Retrospection - Game of Chance

?

“Really? That backwater? You want to go there?”

“Why not? It’s not that far, and we need to stop and refuel anyway.”

“But you should know the chances of finding anything there are almost non-existent.”

“It’s a planet run by the Hutts. It’s a meeting place for all sorts of scum and villainy.”

“And most of those scum are just two-bit wannabe smugglers who abandon their shipments at the first sign of trouble.”

“Not all. The Hutts don’t tolerate that sort, we all know that. Those kind get weeded out quickly.”

“Even so. The chances of finding someone there that can even survive this, let alone win?”

“I have a feeling. We’ll find what we’re looking for.”

“You’d better be right; if we don’t, then we’ll be out this year. And that’s a lot of potential money if we are...”

“Just trust me. How often do my intuitions ever steer you wrong?”

“Fine. But if you’re wrong, you’re the one going in...”

---

And here we have another Retrospection game, featuring Galder, that complete nutjob. He’s entertained me for so long with my games that I’ve decided it’s time to get revenge - I mean, return the favor, with another game of his own.

This game takes place in 38BBY - Galder is a teenager of 14 at this point, currently living with the Doon family on Tatooine and studying with the mad hermit Pazol. At this point, Galder is certainly showing to be gifted with violence, but he’s still nowhere near where he’ll be later as an adult - you’ll have a Lightsaber pool of 8, three blade and five combat tricks.

Tatooine

You’ve never known anything but extremes in your life, it seems. From growing up on Hoth as a young child, with its inhospitably frigid cold, to the searing heat of the desert world of Tatooine...you’ve never lived anywhere that was ever comfortable. Sometimes you wonder what that might be like. But on the other hand, being used to these sorts of extremes...it only helps in your training. If you wish to be stronger than everyone else, more powerful, then you must also be used to harsher conditions.

This is the only life Galder has known, but sometimes you wonder about the fact that, in another lifetime, at your age you’d be a Padawan of the Jedi Order...but never mind all of that. The galaxy has left you to carve your own path, and carve that you will.

Most of your time is spent at the Doons, a family of moisture farmers that took you in after you arrived on Tatooine. They are kind, and they have children close in age to you, and you help with running the farm in return for their hospitality. But you also spend a lot of time training with Pazol. You don’t know if he made an arrangement with them, or had intimidated them or otherwise holds some sway over them...but the Doons do not question your disappearances, sometimes for days at a time, when you are with Pazol.

Currently it is late afternoon, and you are still at the Doons’ farm. Pazol expects you to meet him at his hermit’s cave tonight.

--

If you want to use a predictive power, now’s the time to say so! Also, please choose which tricks young Galder is going to have.

8 isn't bad for 14! Then again, it is all Galder is good at...

He will use Dreams (for free). His Blade Tricks will be- Balanced Guard, Cleave, Block. His Combat Tricks will be- Power Attack, Impervious, Duck, Dodge & Weave, and Focused Blow.

Galder will be tinkering with the family speeder, though he probably has his own (if that's okay) that he takes when he rushes off to Pazol's or when he goes to town. He'll probably wait til the last minute to leave instead of giving himself time to get to Pazol's.

What does the homestead have?

I went off of Chris has Galder's stats listed as for your other game for that, and thought that 8 was more than good enough for a 14 year old stick out tongue And so noted!

Galder can have a speeder of his own that he likely fixed up on his own, indeed. Of course, it's also likely not in the best shape, but it serves your purposes well enough.

The homestead is just your standard moisture farm - a cozy home, many moisture vaporators around the property, a garage-type shed where repairs to vaporators or the speeders can be made out of the heat of the sun, and underground hydroponics and storage areas. Even though everything's kept in good, working condition, most everything has a feeling of being a bit worn-down, thanks to the rough conditions here.

The Doons are all home, as well; they are Matthias, who is your age, and Alis, his younger sister, who is a couple of years younger; their parents (the owners of the homestead) are Korlis and Sallah.

Galder will go see what Matthias is up to.

He's currently tinkering with a vaporator that stopped working properly earlier in the day. Keeping them all running smoothly is quite important, after all, so fixing them is generally a priority.

"Hey, Galder, pass me that hydrospanner," he says, kicking at the machine with mild frustration.

Probably where Galder learned to be handy with machines, if not exactly great.

Galder will grab the hydrospanner mundanely with his hand and pass it to the boy.

"Need any help?" Galder asks. "I just gave the speeder a little tune-up, should be running just fine now."

Most likely!

"Nah, just help me drag it back out into place when I'm done. Shouldn't take more tan a few moments..." he replies, tinkering with it a bit. "And you did? Good, Mom will be pleased..."

"Yeah, sure, I can do that," Galder says. Even as a boy, he has always been very physical strong, though at this age his muscles are more sinewy than the bulk they will become one day. "So... I'm going out tonight. Think anyone will mind?"

"Nah, once we finish this up that's all that needs to be done for the day, and you know Mom and Dad don't mind you going off to do your own things," Matthias replies. He makes a few more adjustments before setting aside his tools. "There, that should do it."

He pauses for a moment as the two of you start to drag the equipment back out of the shed and where it belongs.

"Still...that old guy you go to see is strange."

"Yeah," Galder says, curt enough to make it clear that the subject is not something Matthias should broach but not enough to be rude. "It's nice getting off the farm sometimes, anyway. I'm grateful to live here and work for you, but Tatooine's a big world."

He's not offended. They generally don't ever bring up the subject with you.

"Big world...not a whole lot out there, though. Just lots of desert...I don't know about you, but I plan on getting out of here and seeing more of the galaxy when I'm older."

"I definitely plan to," Galder says. "Maybe we can go together. Watch each other's backs. It's not a safe place."

"Sounds like a plan to me."

It doesn't take long for the two of you to get the repaired vaporator back into place and running again; everything appears to be working fine.

"Well, that's done. Are you gonna stick around any longer or are you heading off soon?" Matthias asks.

"Might be a bit longer," Galder says. "Why?"

"Just wondering. It's usually not safe out in the desert at night."

You generally get the feeling that, of everyone in the family, Matthias is the most interested in why you go off on your own, sometimes for several days at a time, but is hesitant to really ask about it.

Galder feels it is better that none of them know, at least for now. Or at least that they don't know more than they already do, if they have already had brushes with Pazol at some point.

"I can hold my own," Galder says. "Sand People don't scare me."

He pats the blaster pistol at his hip.

Mark it down to teenage curiosity, as well as the fact that Matthias considers you a friend.

"Hey, never hurts to be careful. Especially since they tend to travel in groups. But then again, does anything ever scare you?" he asks, as you walk back to the homestead itself, the suns starting to set; one has already gone down entirely.

"Not in the least," Galder says. "I'm unstoppable, Matthias. The Galaxy won't be ready for me when I march out into it. You'll see."

Galder will probably have tried to teach Matthias some of his close quarters moves at some point.

"No one's completely unstoppable, Galder..." Matthis replies, but he's grinning. He's used to such things from you.

Matthias is better with a gun, but has learned a few moves from you, yes. Always helps to have a backup plan, of course.

The two of you have returned to the homestead by now, and Alis is in the shed, putting away the tools the pair of you left out.

"Thanks for cleaning up after yourselves..." she comments. She's small for her age, with light brown hair. "Dinner won't be ready for a while."
