For this episode we talk about Fringe in Space! What takes to get into space, where you can go once you're there, and what sort of adventures you can have in space! Oh the places you can go to in space, and you can bike there with ease!

If you really want to get into the nitty gritty of space travel, we recommend the renown web site: The Atomic Rocket Page! Put together by Winchell Chung, also renown as the man who first drew an Ogre Mk V and the artist for that other Metagaming favorite, Warpwar.

 42:45 – Tehrmelern Fringe Trains. EXCLUSIVE SECRET REVEALED!!!!

As promised, to call a fringe train you need two different crystals.  Any two will do except you cannot use the black crystal which is only used for station to station travel on a prime.  However, as per the FW bible, calling the train is also a crystal use with a DL of 5.

55:30 – The Fringe Conveyer.

58:40 – Cat Bus

This week we mix it up. We had three segments that came up on three different shows. None of these segments were relative to the topic of the show and none of them were long enough to run as their own show.

Sooooo.... we decided to put them together into one "mix mash" show.

01:02 Topic 1: Listener Mail

Billion6 asks "Does IDET hire alien fringewalkers?"

12:00 Topic 2: Fringeworthy Bible

We talk about the little know Fringeworthy Bible. This is the ruleset that the designers have agreed to work under in order to keep the universe consistent.

15:45 Topic 3: Get Involved!

We talk about ways to get involved in the promotion of Fringeworthy and how we can help you with that.

That's it. We hope you like it. Tune in next week for another episode in our regular format.
