He looks really angry at that Orange Sidewinder

We’re very pleased that our upcoming convention, LaveCon 2017, is sponsored by the EDRPG, a new tabletop roleplaying system based on Elite Dangerous. We though it would be fun to play an adventure and present it to you as a podcast. This particular story plays over three episodes and will end with a special finale episode at Lavecon 2017.

In episode one of INCIDENT AT BAIJANGU, Oliver Hulme – Lead Writer for EDRPG – is our Games Master in an adventure that takes us from an Imperial Business office in Leesti to a Mining Outpost in Baijangu. Cmdrs Psykokow, Eid LeWeise, Elias Thane and 2nd Tech Fozza have been hired for a very specific task. What will they find?
