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!

Got some RPG feedback?

As you may have noticed, there is a pretty steady stream of RPG drama content coming through here. We hope you enjoy the experiences and stories being told, whether it is western/steampunk, pulp adventures inside earth, or our new adventure starting Friday! That said, I’ve been experimenting with length of episodes in recent weeks. I posted a poll on our Twitter about duration (it is embedded after the jump too) to allow you to share some input. It is running for seven days so feel free to compare them on our SoundCloud page.

That being said, you can always send input our way via Twitter or email.
