About The Show
The crew of the Irritated Badger are always on the hunt for money, action, and adventure! They’re just bad at them.
Join us for a space opera game following the often inept usually foolhardy, and extremely dangerous crew of the Wombat-class freighter Irritated Badger as they try so hard to make a living in an unforgiving galaxy full of corporations, space pirates, religious fanatics, insurmountable armies and feudalistic slavers.
