Eclipse Phase 2e Kickstarter! Posted Sat, 04/29/2017 - 11:07

Exciting news for the EP community — the long discussed second edition rule book is in production, and the kickstarter to push it over the finish line is now live!

EP2 promises a pile of updates and tweaks to simplify some of EP's tangliest mechanics, and we'll be working to update Eldrich Host to keep pace with the changes. Our current plan is to keep the EP1 rules active as 1ed.eldrich.host when the new version is ready, so you'll still have complete tools for both editions (as well as all your campaign and homebrew resources) available.

Faction Type

Somatek is a leader in the art and science of uplifting animal species, pioneering several major breakthroughs in cognitive enhancement and genetic modification. The hypercorp also engages in extensive animal pharming—producing and extracting pharmaceuticals from transgenic critters—and markets numerous products and services related to smart animals and chimerical creatures.

Location Type

The comet chaser Frozen Dreams made headlines nearly a year ago, when it was found drifting in space, its crew missing. Investigators discovered remnants of a foreign nanoswarm with a structure alien to any known line of nanotechnology. Very little information about where the swarm was picked up exists, as the silicon and carbon in the ship’s computer systems was chemically eaten out, rendering servers useless, and no other logs exist. Soon after the discovery was publicized by the argonauts, various factions laid claim to Frozen Dreams.

Though babel normally spreads as an aural basilisk hack, it is sometimes transmitted via bionanobots or the digital exsurgent virus. This virus infects muses and some other limited AIs as well as egos.
