Some questions I have on the Surya morph... First, before we get into all the other questions... Why would anyone want to live this way? Sure, there's mesh inserts that you could use to entertain yourself, but it seems like the ONLY thing you're doing is surfing solar weather. That seems like it would be amazing at first... and then get kinda boring. Yes, I read that it's mostly cetacean uplifts that choose this morph, but I'm wondering why they wouldn't want morphs that are suited for Europa. I mean, gentle ocean currents seem a bit different from anything-goes-wrong-and-you're-dead solar winds. Second, I'm not getting how Surya's communicate. In the book in mentions that they can change the color of their skin to communicate. I'm thinking there needs to be mention of another implant that allows their eyes to filter out all that solar radiation WITHOUT also filtering out the visible light coming from their buddies. And how would they broadcast or receive any wireless signal? Wouldn't the sun's radiation muck it all up? Third, what happens when or if Surya want to fight? Culturally, I just don't see it happening. There has to be a way that they resolve conflict without coming to blows. In game terms, it seems like the Surya should have two states of being: health and VAPORIZED. If something disrupts their magnetic field in the sun's corona, that should be enough to vaporize anything not incredibly heat/radiation resistant. But how would they actually fight? Any metal projectile would likely vaporize as soon as it left the Surya's magnetic field. Same thing for a rail gun projectile. And if they can survive being in the sun, I doubt lasers or plasma are much of a worry. This leaves electronic attacks (which I'm not sure would be even possible given the radiation blocking radio communication) or just good old fashioned ramming... which strikes me as particularly suicidal/lethal for both attacker and victim. Finally... and please don't take this as me hating on you guys because I LOVE Eclipse Phase... I just don't feel like the Surya morph fits with the rest of the game. All the morphs that have been introduced are preeeeetty close to being human (or animal). Or robots that are about as resilient as humans (give or take). There isn't, for example, a morph that can survive re-entry into an atmosphere. There isn't a morph that can escape the gravity of an earth-sized planet under it's own power. There isn't a morph that can crush coal into diamonds. But suddenly there IS a morph that can hang out in the sun??? It feels out of place in your game... or like it should be like the Meat-hab... where there's just one that was made as a curiosity. How would a game master work a Surya morph into a game of regular biomorphs? What would an all-Surya campaign be? What would the players do? Food for thought.
