Early Beta Posted Mon, 02/27/2017 - 08:26

Over the weekend, we went through our first real test: players in the Whiskey Station went through the ritual Spending Of The Rez Points for a six month long campaign arc, and did their bookkeeping and research with Eldrich Host during the session. Some bugs were found and feature requests were logged, but it proved pretty useful.

To celebrate, we're calling today the official beta release of the site! Although new account creation is invite-only right now, please ping us at http://twitter.com/eldrichhost if you're interested in kicking the tires with PC and NPC creation, building a full campaign, or porting homebrew materials you've created to the site. We'll get you hooked up with an account and see how you like it!

Xenodeism is another new—though relatively minor—ideology that begins to show religious attributes. Xenodeists worship the Factors and Iktomi as emissaries or prophets of a great godlike race that laid the seeds of creation throughout the universe millions of years ago and therefore are the ultimate creators of transhumanity.

Location Type

The Gateway settlement, on Saturn’s outer shepherd moon Pandora, holds the first publicly known wormhole gate. The Gatekeeper Corporation keeps the gate open as a means of exploration and scientific investigation for all factions and powers. Gatekeeper was originally a Titanian microcorp but is now independent. The Commonwealth of Titan still holds a major stake in it, though not a controlling interest. Granting autonomy to Gatekeeper Corporation was a diplomatic maneuver made in response to Planetary Consortium claims that the Titanians sought hegemony in the outer system.

The stockholm virus is a variant of the xenomorph virus (p. 368, EP) that transforms the mind of the victim before it transforms their body. Stockholm characters view xenomorphs as beautiful and perfect beings and wish to aspire to become them. They become willing allies of xenomorph exsurgents, aiding and concealing them as long as possible. Other exsurgents will not kill stockholm-infected characters but they will ignore or abuse them. Groups of stockholm-infected exsurgents sometimes form cults that seek to create as many xenomorphs as possible.
