We've released one more section of Transhuman to the Open Playtest today: the Infomorphs chapter. You can check it out here in either the Informorphs Playtest Questions thread or the Open Discussion thread.
Of course, there are plenty of other chapters still available in the Transhuman Open Playtest for commenting/questions, or just if you want to get a sneak peek at Transhuman in its roughest public form!
And we have to mention that the Transhuman Kickstarter is rolling on, towards a stretch goal of releasing the Eclipse Phase core rules in ePub format!
- Analyzing brainwaves to authenticate users
- Optogenetic mind control via pleasurable stimulation

A few years back at PaizoCon, my girlfriend & I played a really great game of Evil Hat's Don't Rest Your Head mashed up with the Cthulhu Mythos. The scenario was a sequel to "The Dunwich Horror" using DRYH/DLYM mechanics. It got me thinking about doing an EP/DRYH mashup, so this year, for PAX East, I wrote a scenario about some Lost Generation kids using DRYH's mechanics. I'll be sharing them here in a series of posts.
Our crowdfunding for Transhuman hit $45,000 yesterday, so we've unlocked two new stretch goals.
Stretch Goal 6: Doctrine scenario, $50,000:
Firewall sends a team into the belly of the beast -- the TITAN Quarantine Zone on Mars -- in search of a missing Pandora Gate researcher. Is this a legit mission, or a test of loyalties? And in the hellscape of the TQZ, does that even matter? Adrift aboard a derelict airship, the team must survive long enough to find some answers.
I originally wrote Doctrine as a scenario for Gen Con 2010. At the $50,000 level, Rob Boyle & I will expand on the original adventure to create an episode suitable for insertion into campaign play. Some funds will also go toward commissioning art to accompany the scenario. Doctrine will be available in PDF and POD format, with the PDF included for all backers whose level includes our PDF catalog and the levels that include all PDFs released as part of the kickstarter campaign.
