    It is a period of uncertainty and fear. The Clone Wars are over, the Jedi are destroyed, and the newly formed GALACTIC EMPIRE controls the galaxy through oppression and tyranny.
    In this dark era, the lone droid LO-RNA returns with their recently deceased master to the planet Bothawui, home world of the Bothan species and their infamous espionage network.  Bound by a sombre duty to their late owner, the droid Elo is compelled to take on one final task.

    Empire's Edge - Ep. 03: Bound to Bothawui

    Floating above the Bothan homeworld, the droid Elo and the renegade slicer, Beegax Botano, recuperate from their skirmish down on the planet.
    Both are anxious to leave Bothan space after escaping a terrifying Trandoshan bounty hunter set on capturing Beegax and his customized slicing deck. However, Elo must learn the secret location of Gir Tu’Tey, to fulfill a final request given to them by their deceased Bothan master.
    With threats looming and freedom so close at hand the unlikely pair weigh their options aboard Elo’s ship, The Way, during this tentative moment of calm...

    Empire's Edge - Ep. 04: Storm on The Way

    Returning to Bothawui, the droid Elo and renegade slicer Beegax Botano smuggled their way onto a doonium ore facility down on the planet. Disguising themselves as common transporters, they attempted to access a
    Bothan Spy Net intelligence drop, hidden in plain sight.
    After creating a convincing distraction, Beegax had seconds to slice his way into the network and uncover the whereabouts of Gir Tu’Tey, a young Bothan spy and son of Elo’s former master.
    Successfully disrupting the Bothan Spy Net security, Beegax uncovered Gir’s last know location somewhere in the Socorro system, far out in the lawless reaches of the Outer
    Rim.
    With local hyper lane traffic being closely monitored and time in short supply, Elo and Beegax must try and escape Bothawui undiscovered and undetected.

    Empire's Edge - Ep. 05: Loose Ends at Lightspeed

    After discovering the possible last known location of Gir Tu’Tey, newly allied Elo and Beegax Botano are anxious to leave Bothawui for the Socorro system.  But before they could set out, the two tangled with a tough and treacherous Trandoshan.  Their gallant gambles to overcome the relentless bounty hunter paid off in tenuous victory, but left brave Beegax benumbed and the disparate droid in disrepair.
    Have they finally put down their persistent pursuer?  Can they make it to the Outer Rim before their pasts catch up to them?  Nothing is certain at the edges of the empire and answers are as elusive as missing memories.

    Empire's Edge - Ep. 06: Ambush in the Asteroids

    Leaving Bothawui behind, Beegax and Elo have finally arrived at their destination, the remote world of Socorro in the Outer Rim.  A system at the edge of the empire and the boundaries of uncharted, wild space. The intrepid fringers plot their next move now that the seemingly unstoppable bounty hunter is finally defeated…or is he?  Just kidding, he’s definitely dead!
    Approaching the system’s perilous asteroid belt, Beegax and Elo consider the treacherous astral terrain between them and the planet Socorro.

One of the best actual play podcasts out there

The show has a nice combination of high production quality and great chemistry between the hosts, and their choice of setting doesn’t hurt.

Truly well done

This actual play ttrpg podcast checks all the boxes for me. It really works for long form storytelling, it has a colorful cast of fun characters, it’s technically well done, high quality audio recording and production.

Absolutely Outstanding Potcast

I love this podcast, the cast is amazing and really get into their characters. Fantastic story telling with great, easy to understand gameplay mechanics. I have to admit, I was late to the Party. I discovered them well after they started. I quickly became addicted and before I knew it, caught up to the most current episode. To my pleasant surprise, they will continue their Star Wars story soon (the reason I found them and started listening). The Fallout campaign has been enjoyable but I am a big Star Wars fan, in fact I picked up all the Fantasy Flight books and began running a campaign for my wife and friends. Congratulations to the cast for producing a phenomenal podcast that is the highlight of my commute.

Your fan,

Dan
