From the back cover:
Blast into a dangerous galaxy, where the police shoot on sight, entire systems are overrun with space pirates, and money is the only thing that talks. Gear up with high tech equipment to overcome the heavily armoured combat drones, elite corporate assassins, and over-gunned soldiers of the interstellar powers.
Each player owns their own spaceship, which is completely customizable with multi-cannons, plasma accelerators, enhanced shields and super-fast Frame Shift Drives. Land on alien planets and get behind the wheel of your Surface Reconnaissance Vehicle (SRV) to explore, or strap yourself into your own battle tank and storm pirate bases.
With fast-paced combat, a quick but deep character creation system, and the ability to earn money outside of your GM’s adventures, the Elite: Dangerous Role Playing Game is perfect for beginner and veteran role players alike.
So power up your Cobra Mk III, keep your Micro-Shotgun handy, and launch into a galaxy packed with threat. For in this dangerous galaxy only the elite survive…
