Edge of the Empire I: Escape from Mos Shuuta

Conan McKegg

It is a period of unrest and opportunity in the galaxy. The GALACTIC EMPIRE struggles to maintain control in the midst of civil war. Meanwhile, scoundrels and smugglers, explorers and expatriates, and fringers of all types scramble for a living on the edges of galactic civilisation. It is a hard life, but these renegades have more freedom and opportunity than any citizen of the Core Worlds.

On the desert world of TATOOINE, a few such renegades have run afoul of a local crime boss, TEEMO THE HUTT. Trapped in the tiny spaceport of Mos Shuuta, the renegades have no choice but to steal a starship and flee Teemo's forces. Fortunately, a suitable starship has recently docked at the landing bay: a freighter called the KRAYT FANG, captained by a Trandoshan slaver named Trex. As they flee through the suns-baked streets, the renegades duck into the local cantina to hide from their pursuers...

Edge of the Empire I: Escape from Mos Shuuta is an adventure using Fantasy Flight Game's Edge of the Empire RPG. It is the first of two linked adventures running this weekend. (The second adventure being The Long Arm of the Hutt, running on Sunday.) Where the Star Wars franchise primarily dealt with the Rebel Alliance, Edge of the Empire adventures involve the actions of the fringers - Explorers, Scoundrels and Scouts who operate in the outer rim keeping out of the way of the Empire where they can.

Familiarity with the Star Wars universe is an advantage, but no system experience is required.

Note that players don't have to play in both scenarios, but playing Escape from Mos Shuuta prior to The Long Arm of the Hutt will be more rewarding.
