• Novacrab Artwork

    One of the morph (body) options available to characters in Eclipse Phase are pods (from "pod people") -- biological bodies that were vat-grown as separate parts and then constructed together (quicker to grow and make then full clones), and controlled by a cyberbrain (usually by AI). While most pods are humanoid, this isn't a requirement. One common non-humanoid pod is the novacrab, bio-engineered from spider crab stock, as illustrated here by Robin Chyo (click for larger image). Yes, this means you can play a character who is a giant crab with a cybernetic brain.


  • LLOTV Artwork

    Here's an illustration of a Large Lander and Orbit Transfer Vehicle (LLOTV) by Opus Artz (Rasmus Berggreen/Dr CM Wong). In Eclipse Phase, LLOTVS are common vehicles for moving between planetary bodies/moons/etc and ships in orbit and for short trips between space habitats in the same "neighborhood."

  • Eclipse Phase update

    We've received a few requests for updates, so here's an overview of what's going on with Eclipse Phase.

    Proofreading for the core book is all finished, but we unfortunately missed our to-print date due to a host of issues arising with artwork. As it currently stands, we're still waiting on some art to be finished for the book, and we expect that to take at least a couple more weeks. There is also some graphic design work that still needs to be finished, but once the artwork is in that will get wrapped up and we'll get it off to the printer. Once I have more concrete news on that front, I'll post it here. We all want to get this book out as soon as we can.

    This means that the EP Quick Start Rules are also still on hold, but we should have these out soon after the core Eclipse Phase book goes to print.

    We do plan to make the PDF of the core book available for sale soon after it hits the printer.
