Setting Conversion Query
Question for the community as a whole: Has anyone bothered to try and use the EP system for their own science fiction setting? I can't imagine it wouldn't work well for it, but I'd like to hear thoughts and ideas revolving using the EP mechanics in another setting.

I know that Jack Graham is creating [url=http://lonesomerobot.com/2009/08/02/announcing-empyrean-a-new-rpg-from-l..., which is a sci-fi setting rife with aliens, sentient starships and FTL travel. I, too, happen to be using Eclipse Phase's mechanics in my setting, which is Earth-based futuristic world that feels like a mixture of the cyberpunk and transhuman genres, and is heavily inspired by works like Shadowrun and Ghost in the Shell. All in all, transhumanist settings will be the most receptive to the mechanics of Eclipse Phase, and for obvious reasons. Admittedly, though, almost any genre can fit pretty well within the confines of the mechanics. To be fair, however, almost any genre can fit pretty well within the confines of the setting; the potentials for simulspace open up limitless opportunities, and even my group had a very long talk about how you could even port a D&D campaign into the setting as some sort of "popular simulspace MMO". Hopefully the other person creating a setting responds, but if you want more information on what I'm doing with my campaign, I'd be more than happy to oblige.
Transhumans will one day be the Luddites of the posthuman age. [url=http://bit.ly/2p3wk7c]Help me get my gaming fix, if you want.[/url]
