Edge of the Empire: Beginner’s Game – Part 2

The group has gotten themselves into a bind; hoping to get the necessary part to fly away and some more of Teemo’s goons coming their way. Led by Pash’s “skullduggery” and words, will they be smooth enough to make their way through this transaction? Will Lowhhrick have to use some of his wookie intimidation to get where they need to be going?

Edge of the Empire: Beginner Game – Part 1

Welcome to the Beginner’s Game of Edge of the Empire!

This is five of us playing the premade campaign as a one-shot to see how we like it and whether we should continue with a full game. There are mostly new voices but hopefully the same amount of fun and excitement.

This story follows four former employees of Teemo the Hutt, trying to escape by any means necessary. They are chased into a cantina when we meet up with them but the intro gives you the full story. Get ready for something out of this world!
