Planning for the mothballs! Posted Fri, 10/02/2020 - 09:28

After quite a bit of planning, Eldrich Host 2.0 — a complete rewrite using the EP2 rules and books — is underway! No ETA at present, but there will be a time in the coming 6-8 months when the EP1 version of this site will be archived and no longer usable. If you currently have character sheets, homebrew materials, or campaign documentation that's hosted here, we'll keep static versions of the content online for quite some time to ensure no one loses anything.

Further updates as events warrant!

The 14K Triad controls a large part of the casino industry and various forms of illegal gambling, betting, and rigged lotteries. Through their Galaxy Entertainment Group, a legal casino and gambling hypercorp, the 14K maintains tight connections to politicians, celebrities and influential entrepreneurs in several habitats and can afford the luxury of a private police force, the Pai Gow (Double Hand). Using the casino business for money laundering, they are also heavily involved in loan sharking and credit/ID fraud.

Addison Hütz’s great dream was for transhumanity to experience the widest, most prized and unique collection of music, art, Earth paraphernalia, and exotic items in the universe (for a modest fee). Hütz’s dream became reality in Habitat on the Rock. Part ice castle, part scrapyard, it is considered a work of art in its own right. As curators acquire new materials and architectural plans, Habitat on the Rock takes on its own life and sprouts further from its original asteroid foundation.

The Moabite strain functions exactly like the haunting virus (p. 366, EP), except that the character of the hallucinations and altered mental states experienced by the victims is explicitly religious. The infected are visited by angelic messengers inciting them to action, perceive non-believers as twisted hobgoblins and enemies as demons, and generally experience the world around them as being full of portents from God. Far from being typical cult charlatans, infected characters are imparted with genuine belief by the virus, making them particularly dangerous.
