The Elite-Encounters RPG is on Sale.

Those of you who have been following Elite:Dangerous since the Kickstarter, will know of the original RPG project by Dave Hughes at Daftworks. Well, after five years of struggle, The Elite Encounters RPG has been approved for release and digital copies of the game are now available for sale at the Daftworks Store.

All of us at Lave Radio wish to send our congratulations to Dave as we know how much effort, blood, sweat, tears, coffee and late nights he’s put into this project (with a little bit of help from our own Colin Ford, among many others).



We have three episodes using the game and they can be found at:

  1. RPG Episode 1
  2. RPG Episode 2
  3. RPG Episode 3

Cheers Dave. o7 Commander


P.S. Colin (PhoenixDfire) says play the vehicle combat rules; they’re awesome.

    • Major Bugs which have been reported.
      • Mouse going mental :- workaround is to go to options graphics menu and change the mouse settings to Panel.
      • Too Many Friends :- This is an issue for only the more popular members of the community, turns out if your friends list is too long, it takes too long to render and causes issues. This needs a patch but as long as you avoid the friends tab it should be fine. (?)
      • Servers seem to be ‘Flakey’ over the Easter Weekend.Response from Dav (Warning The posts in that thread a bit ‘salty’)
      • The Galaxy Map :- This is an issue with the UI for people not using the standard resolution and needs an urgent path
