Print Pre-Orders for Overrun and more!

Overrun, one of the stretch goals ("Introductory Adventure") from the Eclipse Phase Second Edition Kickstarter is now available! Backers, see this update for information about your downloads!

We spent a lot of time working on Overrun — because we love good adventures, and we know reading and running adventures is how many people learn how a game works. We've broken out paragraphs of text to clearly call out when players could/should make rolls, when stress tests could happen, key information the GM shouldn't forget, and more. We're eager to hear what you think about Overrun and the updated adventure presentation!

Take a look at the PDF preview of Overrun (If you're a GM, not a player — don't read ahead!)

Eclipse Phase Second Edition Print on Demand & Overrun Pre-Orders

Here’s an update on the Posthuman stuff!

Eclipse Phase Second Edition Print on Demand

You can now grab Eclipse Phase Second Edition in softcover from DriveThruRPG, in both Standard Color and Premium Color. If you’re in the USA or Canada, these books will be printed and shipped from the USA. If you’re elsewhere in the world, they’ll print and ship from the UK!

In the past, we have not released print on demand versions of our hardcover books until those books are in low-stock situations and unlikely to be reprinted. Due to COVID-19 making worldwide availability of EP2 difficult we’ve taken this step to help out our international fans. We’ve always liked experiments — this is one of them.

We’ve also made Eclipse Phase first edition available in softcover.

After the Fall and A Time of Eclipse Available for Free!

We've made two of our digital Eclipse Phase releases completely free to give you some more to read while you're socially distancing!

In a world of transhuman survival and horror, technology allows the re-shaping of bodies and minds, but also creates opportunities for oppression and puts the capability for mass destruction in the hands of everyone. Other threats lurk in the devastated habitats of the Fall, dangers both familiar and alien.

After the Fall is available on our own Posthuman.Shop and DriveThruRPG.

State of the World & Posthuman Studios

It's a strange time to write an update. It's a strange time to be.

The state of the world and the state of business is changing quickly. Personally, we are all in official Shelter in Place states or practicing social distancing as much as possible.

Business-wise, we continue to work on Eclipse Phase projects, but the near future of the tabletop game business is murky: major distributors are suspending operations, some printing companies have done the same, conventions have been cancelled, postponed, or are in limbo. Amazon — the world's largest bookstore — is not buying books.

While we all work from home on a regular basis, the pandemic changes things: partners are also working from home, children aren't at school, schedules are disrupted.

Our immediate focus is on finishing ongoing projects and not opening new loops. This includes the remaining rewards and stretch goals from the Eclipse Phase Second Edition Kickstarter project, all of which are in progress.

Eclipse Phase Second Edition material in advance!

Eclipse Phase Second Edition is really close to being finished. We're down to some final edits, graphic design tweaks, integrating those last-minute rules corrections, working on cross-references and the index.

The Open Playtest rules are still available, although the playtest itself is over. We'll keep the playtest rules available until the PDF version of EP2 drops! And of course, the Quick-Start Rules are available and they'll be getting an update when the core rulebook is finalized!

We've been releasing some gameplay and setting material in advance of the core rulebook, and we've mentioned it on the Kickstarter page but not over here, so here's a summary!:

Eclipse Phase Second Edition Release Update

We passed this news onto our backers on Kickstarter several weeks ago, and to keep the public in the loop: Eclipse Phase Second Edition is late, and will be released in 2018.

Response to the playtest has been spirited, and we're still working our way through rules issues and rewrites. An update to the playtest package was made available on November 16th, and more material is forthcoming. All of the book's art is in. We're tweaking and expanding the graphic design. And we're pushing forward with Kickstarter stretch goals and other Eclipse Phase projects.

Eclipse Phase Second Edition Delays

Our schedule for Eclipse Phase Second Edition was aggressive, and it got waylaid by several factors, some unexpected, and some just hit us harder than expected. Our long-term fans know that we've always operated on a slow-and-steady pace leading to high-quality books, and we will continue that in finishing Eclipse Phase Second Edition.

Eclipse Phase on Amazon

For awhile, we had some issues getting new titles properly listed on Amazon; we're pleased to say that we've hooked up with a new distributor to handle getting stuff to Amazon, and books are now arriving promptly. Amazon now has all of our in print hardcover titles in stock, along with a few other select softcovers. Essentially, if it's in print and it's not a print on demand title, Amazon has it now!

Eclipse Phase

After the Eclipse Phase core rulebook, titles available are:

X-Risks
X-Risks
