Welcome to Eclipse Phase
Eclipse Phase: the world
Eclipse Phase is a game of transhuman survival. Ten years after losing a war against a group of hostile AIs, transhumanity stands on the divide between flourishing and going extinct. The Earth is ruined and overrun by machines, but we have colonized the rest of the Solar System and even worlds beyond. Transhumanity is enhanced and improved, but also battered and bitterly divided. The technologies that open up liberatory possibilities, to live with abundance, and to reshape our bodies and minds also create opportunities for oppression and put the capability for mass destruction in the hands of everyone.
A cross-faction conspiracy called Firewall seeks to protect transhumanity from existential threats that might wipe us out as a species. Firewall agents may find themselves hunting for prized technology in a gutted habitat falling from orbit, risking the hellish landscapes of a ruined Earth, racing against corporate teams to retrieve alien relics on a frozen exoplanet, or following the trail of a terrorist through militarized stations and isolationist habitats.
Eclipse Phase: Roleplaying Game
In Eclipse Phase, you are transhuman. You may have been born as a human, an infolife AI, or an animal uplifted to sapience. You are genetically modified, physically and mentally augmented, and functionally immortal. Your mind is digitally backed up, like a save point. If you die, you can be brought back. Your ego — both consciousness and memories — can be physically restored. You may also copy your mind and download into a body of your choice. This new morph can be biological, a synthetic robotic shell, or a digital infomorph. Your morph is as customizable as your gear, according to your mission and requirements.
Eclipse Phase Second Edition features a d100 resolution system and package-based character creation — you can make your first character while learning about the setting at the same time!
The Eclipse Phase Second Edition rules are available on DriveThruRPG — print release coming Fall 2019.
