Elite Encounters Role-Playing Game

About the Book

Elite Encounters RPG

Elite Encounters RPG

Elite Encounters was the first Role-Playing Game authorised by Frontier Developments, creators of the Elite: Dangerous Computer Game. It is the work of David Hughes (aka Selezen Lake to the Elite gaming community) and was one of the multiple ‘Writers Pack’ licenses issued by Frontier Development during their Kickstarter Campaign to relaunch the Elite Franchise back in 2013.

Although the work is almost entirely the single-handed work of David, it does feature additional fictional work from the community (which also had to be authorised by Frontier Developments) and this includes five drabbles (100-word short stories) from WW author John Hoggard.
