History

Early history

Its first colony, Narmle, was settled by King Narmlé ca. 2,000 BBY. A second colony, Restuss, was founded as a quarantined processing center/spaceport following an outbreak of brainworm rot on Naboo in 200 BBY. The Republic attempted to enforce the quarantine even after the plague ended, but the natives rioted, forcing the quarantine's end. The hospital and detainment center were razed in the riots, and a new starport built.

The history of Rori was challenged by Naboo scholars. Some of them claimed that a small number of Naboo's original Human colonists landed on Rori before traveling down to the more temperate Naboo below. If this theory was correct, then the early settlers left no obvious signs of their stay. Others believed that Rori remained unsettled until a small group of spice miners decided to travel to the moon to search for the fabled spice lodes. Some miners did inhabit the moon, but they lived in a primitive lifestyle and had no records of their first landing on the moon.

Later history

Rori was inhabited by Human kassoti spice miners, as well as Zabrak and Twi'leks. In 32 BBY, it was also settled by a number of Gungans, who disagreed with Boss Rugor Nass's support of the Naboo. Its wildlife included both native and imported species, some originally from Naboo. Ferrox, the Governor of Rori, sat on the Naboo Royal Advisory Council of Queen Kylantha.

The rulers of Naboo viewed Rori as an extension of their domain. Because of this Rori received regular supplies from Naboo and transportation between Rori and Naboo occurred often. The Empire also viewed Rori as nothing more than a small Naboo outpost. Rori's citizens were far more independent than the Naboo, and it was believed that Rori housed some Rebel cells.

Seeds of Rebellion

By sometime shortly after the Battle of Yavin, the Rebel Alliance had established an outpost on Rori called Zephyr Base. The Rebels liaised with the Gungans, particularly Booto Lubble, in planning operations against Imperial activity on Naboo. Besides Lubble, other Rebels operating from the base included Raxa Binn, Vordin Sildor, and Mon Calamari General Ufwol, commanding officer for Crimson Phoenix Squadron.

The Battle of Restuss

During the Galactic Civil War (approx. 1 ABY), the Galactic Empire began research on a new piece of technology small enough to fit in someone's hand, but powerful enough to power a Star Destroyer. The Rebellion quickly heard of this and began taking precautionary measures, such as building a small base outside the west entrance of the city.

The Empire, seeing this threat, also began building a base east of the city and evacuated the local population to a small starport. As the project wore on and the battle continued, it reached a developmental stage that became unstable and destroyed everything within a 200-meter radius around the city, tearing apart the starport and destroying or damaging every building within. The outcome of the battle is unknown, as records disappeared after the fall of the Empire.

From SWG Wiki

Naboo's moon, Rori, is not very different from the main planet in climate. Rori is slightly more swampy and densely forestted than Naboo and much less populated. It is much more mysterious as well, with many areas of exploration available. Narmle is its largest city and capital, but Rori is best known for the PvP experience at Restuss to the north.

Rori is more dangerous than Naboo, yet remains moderate. One can place facilities and homes on the planet.

Star Wars Lore

A moon of Naboo, Rori is an overgrown, wild world dominated by oppressive gray skies, thick jungles, and think swamps. Unlike Naboo, Rori is not widely populated. In fact, it supports only two small colonies, which are separated by a giant, reed-infested bog.

Rori's history is somewhat contested by Naboo scholars. Some claim that a small contingent of Naboo's original human colonists actually landed on Rori before traveling on to the more temperate parent planet. If this is true, those early settlers left no obvious signs of their stay. Others hold that Rori remained unsettled until a small group of spice miners decided to relocate to the moon in search of fabled spice lodes. Some spice miners do, in fact, inhabit Rori, but they live in a primitive lifestyle and have no records of their first landing on the moon. Officially known as the Rori Spice Mining Collective, a group of honest spice miners who sell their goods to pharmaceutical companies. They often engage in turf wars with the Kobola spice miners.

Whatever the truth, Rori was officially colonized about two thousand years before the Battle of Naboo, during the short-lived reign of King Narmle. Although widely regarded as a charming and intelligent man, Narmle was a restless explorer who spent most of the time visiting distant worlds in search of new vistas. The Naboo Royal Advisory Council soon suggested that Narmle relinquish the throne and become an ambassador. Before leaving office as King, however, Narmle perosnally planned the construction of a small settlement on Rori. He envisioned that Rori would one day become an active agricultural hub, supplying food and medicines to other neighboring planets. Unfortunately, Rori attracted few settlers. Frustrated, Narmle left Rori and vanished into the Outer Rim forever, although the city he helped build still bears his name.

In the centuries since Narmle's disappearance. Rori's population has grown only slightly. During an outbreak of brainworm rot some two hundred years before the Battle of Naboo, the Advisory Council commissioned the construction of a second spaceport on Rori; this city, known as Restuss, was used for decades as a quarantined processing center for colonists traveling to Naboo. Although both Restuss and Narmle were built by Naboo architects, most of the moon's current colonists have been drawn from other, less hospitable worlds, including Iridonia and Ryloth. The Gungans, who colonized the Naboo moon of Ohma-D'un, have also established small outposts on Rori.

The Naboo rulers have typically viewed Rori as an extension of their domain. As a result, Rori does receive regular supplies from Naboo and travel between the moon and it's parent planet is routine. Members of the Naboo Royal Security Forces are stationed in both Restuss and Narmle, and Rori's governor sits on the Naboo Royal Advisory Council. The Empire also views Rori as little more than a small Naboo outpost and expects all of the moon's inhbitants to remain loyal to Emperor Palpatine. In reality, Rori's denizens are far more independent than the "planetary" Naboo and it is believed that the moon harbors some Rebels.
