First off, thank you for listening to our Edge of the Empire RPG Drama. This story is coming to a close soon. The players were told upfront that they wouldn’t know where they fit in the timeline of things. This was just to keep them honest in case they ran into anything. But you aren’t the players and a significant piece of information has been revealed that ties the RPG into the series.
Hit the jump to find out the timeline placement.
The only obvious thing their characters would know is that the first Death Star had been destroyed and that this doesn’t take place too long after that.
In the most recent episodes, Grakkus the Hutt has been mentioned. He was revealed for the first time (at least to me) in the current Star Wars comic book, Star Wars 10: Showdown on the Smuggler’s Moon, Part III. Reading that comic storyline will tell you all you need to know about where we are in the Star Wars universe.
