  • Transhuman Kickstarter Updates!

    Things have been very busy since we launched the Transhuman Kickstarter, and keeping all aspects of our social media / websites / the Kickstarter itself is a big task. Here's a summary of what's happened so far!

    We launched the Transhuman Kickstarter late on Tuesday night, and by noon on Wednesday we had already reached our initial funding goal -- all before some fans had even heard of the project!

    By Wednesday afternoon, it was clear that the first stretch goal was going to be unlocked that day, and it was! When we reached $20,000 in pledges we pledged in return to add 8 sample characters to Transhuman, and we unveiled the third stretch goal in the campaign: at $30,000, we'll give all the freelancers (authors, editors, artists -- but not Posthuman owners) a 15% raise for their Transhuman pay!

  • Transhuman Kickstarter Launches!

    The Kickstarter campaign for Transhuman has launched!

    We are hard at work on Transhuman, the Player's Guide for Eclipse Phase. Transhuman is a player's handbook for Eclipse Phase, full of optional and additional rules and advice. Most importantly, It features two new alternative and simplified character generation systems for Eclipse Phase. One of these uses pre-created packages to build characters, and the other builds off that system but uses random elements to add twists. These systems are designed to make it quick and easy to create a new character or for gamemasters to whip up NPCs as needed.

    Transhuman covers different types of Eclipse Phase characters in detail: AGIs, asyncs, infomorphs, uplifts, infugees, and indentures. In addition to roleplaying advice and optional rules for these specific character types, other elements of the game that affect characters such as insanity, death and memory loss, psychosurgery, nanofabrication, and reputation are explored.

  • Eclipse Phase - April Updates

    As we near the launch of our kickstarter campaign for our next book, Transhuman, we have a few news items we wanted to catch everyone up on.

    First up, Sunward: The Inner System is now back in stock and in stores once again. This is our second printing of the sourcebook and we're glad to have it available again! Note that we raised the cover price to $44.99.

    Second, Rimward: The Outer System has been nominated for an Origins Award for Best Roleplaying Supplement! We're glad to see it get some recognition. If you're attending the Origins Game Fair this summer, please consider voting for it!

  • Transhuman Open Playtest and Kickstarter!

    We have two major announcements regarding Transhuman, our upcoming Player's Guide for Eclipse Phase. First off, we had previously said that Transhuman material will be subject to an open playtest, and that open playtest starts today!

    We have created the Transhuman Playtest section on our forums, and the first material available for playtesting -- part of the Traits chapter -- is already posted! Everyone is free to participate in the playtest, all it takes is an account on our forums and some of your time and effort towards polishing Transhuman!

    Each chapter also has specific questions from us. Please read the chapter with the eye towards answering those questions. There are two threads in the Transhuman Playtest Forum for each chapter -- one for answering those questions, and another for all other discussion about that chapter.
