Podracer: Life in the Fast Line was the first game in the Podracer Series at TheForce.Net Roleplaying Forum. It is set roughly between the end of the New Jedi Order series and the beginning of the Dark Nest Trilogy.

Racers from around the Galaxy would be participating in races to earn money and credits. Several major governments and corporations offered to sponsor racers.

- 3. In-Race: As the race began, players would alternate posts describing their racing performance. They would only be able to post after a certain ammount of posts by other players (the Successive Post Limit or SPL) and could Submit for Race Completion at any point after reaching the Post Minimum Limit or PML.
