Ronnie the Rocketpack Rodent was the mascot for the Galaxy Ways amusement park and resort on the planet Aralia. The character was noted for his courage. Shops in Galaxy Ways sold merchandise featuring the rodent, including full-body costumes.
Behind the scenes
The rodent symbol of the Galaxy Ways amusement park appears in the adventure seed "Trouble at Galaxy Ways" by Bill Olmesdahl. The scenario was published in the Star Wars Gamemaster Screen, a 1992 West End Games product for the Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. In the default version of the adventure, the player characters must face down hordes of hungry Ranats who attack the park's patrons to drag them away and eat them.
However, Olmesdahl offers a variant wherein the Ranats are seeking not food but objects of veneration. In this version, the species has adopted Ronnie the Rocketpack Rodent as a deity, and they are trying to steal as much merchandise featuring the character as they can.
