April: Not So Cruel at PS+

Here's a quick update on what the Posthumans have been up to over the last month.

The big news for April was the release of The Devotees, the longest scenario we've released to date for Eclipse Phase. Caleb Stokes took on some of the darkest subject matter in EP -- the trade in stolen egos -- and built a densely twisting story of x-risks and gangland double-crossing. The scenario features art by Andy Wright, Nathan Geppert, and Mark Molnar. And this book was my first outing as a developer (although Rob did jump in & save my potatoes a few times).

If you didn't back our Kickstarter last year, you can get print and PDF copies of Devotees at Drivethru RPG. As usual, it's Creative Commons licensed, so there's probably a torrent somewhere out there, too.

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.

Eclipse Phase in French Out This Week!

The long-awaited French translation of Eclipse Phase is out this week in France, courtesy of Black Book Editions! The standard books will be in stores and available for order via Black Book's site on Thursday. A slip-cased limited run collector's edition is also coming out, and Black Book tells us they still have some copies of that available for order.

Rimward Street Date: October 3rd, 2012

Our newest release, Rimward: The Outer System, will be in stores Wednesday Oct. 3rd! This 200-page, full-color, hardcover sourcebook ($44.99) details the outer half of the solar system, from the Main Belt to the Kuiper Belt, visiting all of the major stations and habitats. The predominant outer system factions are also outlined, including the anarchists, brinkers, Extropians, scum, Titanians, and ultimates. A selection of new morphs and gear rounds out the material. This sourcebook is a companion to the Sunward sourcebook and a great resource for running campaigns and scenarios in the outer rim.

Now is a great time to tell your friendly local game store to put in an order, as it ships out to stores early next week!
