SciFi Dice rules for your EP games?
When writing the SciFi Dice toolkit for Fantasy Dice I was inspired a lot by Eclipse Phase (also Transhuman, Blue Planet and Nova Praxis) and since the PDF is available for free under a CC license I'm sharing it here in case anyone wants to have a look or give it a go. Although many parts are "feature complete", such as character creation, you do need Fantasy Dice for the full rules this toolkit is based on, but you could also use Turbo Dice which is the fast play version. I also recommend taking a look at the Fantasy Dice One Page Primer and Fantasy Dice Combat Primer. I always intended to release a science fiction setting myself, but the Eclipse Phase verse is so similar to what I wanted to do - only a lot bigger and better - that I no longer feel that need. Instead I'll likely end up writing some more material for EP.

So, if you're releasing them
So, if you're releasing them CC/NC/SA, do you have a link to a free download of the PDFs? I can't find anything on Google, or on any of the other usual sites.

All of those can be
All of those can be downloaded for free from RPGNow/DriveThruRPG, except Fantasy Dice. There are no watermarks or anything. I don't currently offer any free download site for FD, but obviously anyone is welcome to do so given the license. I primarily chose the CC license to tell fans that getting creative and sharing with others is allowed and encouraged, and because I wanted to send the signal that if you support me by getting a copy then I much appreciate it, but if you just want to grab a copy then I'm completely ok with that too and hope you get some fun out of it. I might consider switching to the "pay what you want" model, starting from zero, but as I'm currently working full time and completing my Masters degree there is no telling when I might find the time for this. I'm curious, what are the usual sites?
