Elite Dangerous RPG - The Worst Intentions

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to a universe of Elite adventure, Commander! 

The main purpose of this free 50 page sampler The Worst Intentions for the Elite Dangerous Roleplaying Game, is to allow players to sample the ruleset and universe of this exciting new RPG from Spidermind Games and get a feeling for how it works.

Please note: It does not contain the full rule sets and there will be plenty left over for the player to discover when they get the full 350 page Cobra Manual!                                 

This standalone booklet contains a single adventure, The Worst Intentions, for you to play. Included are four pre-generated characters including their ship and equipment. Partial rules for personal combat, spaceship combat and ground combat are also included. 

For further details and information search for the Elite Dangerous RPG page on Kickstarter! 

Elite Dangerous the Roleplaying Game is a skill based system using a D10 and a skill bonus to exceed difficulty numbers. You advance by Rank, using the same rank structure as exists in the computer game. You begin as 'Harmless' and can make your way all the way up to 'Deadly' and then 'Elite'. Each Rank has a skill cap which is steadily increased as you gain in experience. Character creation begins with you choosing from a number of 'Backgrounds' which come with a unique set of skill improvements and personal Enhancements to enable your character to be as unique a person as you are. 

Each character begins with their own spaceship, just like in the computer game. Not only can characters improve these ships with upgrades to the weapons and internal systems but, with the right amount of money, players can trade in their ships for larger and more powerful models. Players can also engage in vehicle combat and purchase larger and better ground vehicles as they advance in wealth. 

GMs can create their own missions for their players, covering areas such as Military Missions, Espionage, Exploration as well as trading, or they can use our random mission generator to create plot hooks and twists. 

What is not included here are: Character Creation rules, Adventure Creation rules, Spaceship modification rules, Equipment lists (Except the equipment listed in the game), the full combat rules (partial rules for this adventure are included) and lots and lots of other detail which you will only find in the full RPG.

This is a short adventure in the elite universe! its no ruleset, there are no real quick rules but everything you need to play. its railroading yes but then you can see every part of the game.
Fight/roleplay/explore... and you get nice hints what the nsc will do if you interact with him relating to your method (charming/intimidate...)

the Rules will be published when the Kickstarter ends so no worry about full rules. its only to get the feeling of the setting!

i like this quick adventure and i look forward to more rules/setting infos...

File Size:
22.64 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
