I may, possibly, have been reading the Morph Recognition Guide while on my latest Eclipse Phase kick. Particularly, I may have been reading the section on custom; knockoff and otherwise variant morphs. A few ideas have been floating around in my braincase since then, and I thought it might be appropriate to inflict them on a wider audience. To address this possibility, I present my colleague Johnny Olympus, of Johnny Olympus & Forks’ Morph Brokerage and Resleeving.
Many thanks of introduction, friendly make recommender. At here Johnny Olympus we make to discerning customers best of unique morph opportunity available. Many bargains, much value! All provide of genuine authenticate and certify for legals.
Replicae Unlimited: Series One Ultimatum Reforge Perfected for Mars is living, much discounts on limited production make!
The first, and not coincidentally last, in-house design by Replicae Unlimited during their brief foray away from their niece as in-system manufacturing of low-end morphs from Skinthetic, the Ultimatum Reforge is a flawed knockoff of the Remade with some interesting variations that could have made it great.
Intended as a high-end Martian model, the Ultimatum Reforge avoids the inhuman look of the archetype, landing straight in the expected range of features that more conservative and unadventurous customers expect. The phenotypes for the initial run were pan-Asian blends, averaged out for marketability, with the intent of adding more variety in the second series. Martian acclimatization was also included as standard, and the company even pre-installed Medichines to sweeten the package.
Unfortunately, Replicae Unlimited went too far, too fast. Pushing the limit for accelerated growth compounded the issues, but it was corner-cutting at the design stage that doomed the project. Not even the extensive pre-sale surgical genetic patches and ongoing treatments could fully mitigate a neural net that never properly meshed with the altered physiology, and another grand ambition wound up on the firesale of history to mitigate losses.
Still, if you’re looking for a step above the average Mars-adapted Exalt at an affordable price, and if you can overlook the limitations, this might be the body for you!

Bayer’s of Qurain: Titan Very special for collectors’ interests. Ignoring name. Is no problem. Great strongs, much beauty.
Despite the unfortunate name, the Titan is an exceptional morph. One of the earliest Bruiser variants, Bayer’s of Qurain took a brute and created art. Gorgeous giants designed on Arab and North African lines, initial sales were solid even in the unrest preceding the fall. Neither the designers nor the executives responsible stayed lucky for long, however, and the company died with its home town.
Unfortunately, saddled with an unfortunate name and with Bayer’s headquarters now smack bang in the TQZ, the designers’ work is doomed to obscurity. To compound matters, and making a resurrection under a new name problematic, the GRM installed on the Titan has so far resisted reverse-engineering; and of course if the original design specs survived they are now less than accessable.
Unusual and eye catching, the Titan is ideal for those looking to make a statement, and will truly dominate almost any room.
Base Model: Bruiser Implants: Add Clean Metabolism, Enhanced Pheromones, Low Pressure Tolerance and Temperature Tolerance Advantages: +15 SOM (includes Hardened Skeleton bonus), +5 REF (+15 with Adrenal Boost), +5 SAV, +10 Intimidation Skill, Add Striking Looks (Level 1) Disadvantages: Remove Unattractive (Level 1) CP Cost: 80 Credit Cost: Expensive (75,999 at Johnny Olympus & Forks’ Morph Brokerage and Resleeving, while stocks last)
Bayer’s of Qurain / Skinthetic: Rock-Jock Deluxe Old-times favourite with many in own’s family.
The Morph that cemented Bayer’s reputation for high-end biomorph work, the Rock-Jock Deluxe builds on the common Alpiner baseline with impressive work on self-regenerative tissues and perhaps the least obtrusive of the early-model integrated bioweave. Initial models favoured Bayer’s standard Arab and North African range in looks, though more variety was added as the line matured, while the red-tanned skin tones were an early contributor to the now pase “Mars look”.
After the Bayer’s untimely demise, Skinthetic was in a position to adopt the line, and continues small-batch production for those with the inclination and funds to avoid reliance on GSPs.
A solid choice for those looking to make their own way in the wilderness, the Rock-Jock Deluxe is a trusted biomorph unlikely to go out of favour any time soon.
Base Model: Martian Alpiner Implants: Add Bioweave Armor (Light) and Clean Metabolism Advantages: Add Rapid Healer Disadvantages: Remove Planned Obsolescence CP Cost: 45 Credit Cost: Expensive (29,999 at Johnny Olympus & Forks’ Morph Brokerage and Resleeving)
Argyne Collective: Luminar Naga GL-2 Specials model from exciting new manufacturer. Many opportunity for early adopting.
For all the Argyne Collective tout their Redneck roots and make gestures towards the Barsoomian cause in an attempt to mask it, the morph-crafters behind this Noctis-based synthmorph manufacturer are marketing strictly to high-end customers with an eye for the unusual. The Luminar Naga series is perhaps the shining example of this.
Savant symthmorphs are still rare Sunward of Neptune, so hitting the ground running with an off-the-wall variant seems more than a little redundant. Still, that’s what Argyne have pulled off with the Luminar Naga. Replacing the played-out bipedal locomotion of the standard model with a slitheroid-derived system not being enough, they have also adopted a full synthetic mask with a fantasy twist. In particular, the GL-2 series is manufactured with a charcoal-skinned female upper body and iridescent black/green scales on the tail for a truly distinctive look.
It’s not for the faint hearted, but the Luminar Naga provides an intriguing blend of cutting-edge out-system cognition enhancement and synthmorph utility, all wrapped up with an exotic skin that’s sure to make a statement.
Base Model: Savant Implants: Add Snake mobility system and Synthetic Mask (this negates the Social Stigma (Clanking Masses) trait) Mobility System: Snake 4/16, Roller 8/32 Advantages: +10 COG, +5 COO, +5 INT, +5 SAV, +5 SOM CP Cost: 70 Credit Cost: Expensive (47,999 at Johnny Olympus & Forks’ Morph Brokerage and Resleeving)
