Schedule of Eclipse Phase events at PAX West. I won’t be making it, but developer Brian Cross will be there. I highly recommend checking it out if you’ll be there. Not sure if he’ll be running my scenario from Gen Con, Doctrine, but I hope so!
Posthuman Studios got some love (and some more love, and then some more) for Eclipse Phase this summer, starting with winning an Origins Award for Best Role-Playing Game at Origins Game Fair in July. We went on to receive four ENnie nominations. This was neat, but we weren’t really expecting to win anything, especially since Pathfinder’s powerful fan base would be voting en masse. (And it was a good night for Pathfinder; they left with something like a dozen medals! Being a Pathfinder fan myself, I can’t argue much with this).
But lo, we were to be surprised…
The outcome: Eclipse Phase won…
- Best Writing: Gold
- Best Cover Art: Silver (go, Stephan Martiniere!)
- Product of the Year: Silver
For the Best Production Values ENnie, Adam Jury of Eclipse Phase lost to Adam Jury of Shadowrun: 20th Anniversary. Four ENnies at one table. Sweet!
So now I get to display these…
Ten year old me? Super jealous.
I’m headed for Gen Con in a few hours. You can find me at the Sandstorm Productions booth. Sandstorm is Posthuman’s new publisher for Eclipse Phase. We’ll have the second printing of the EP core book, the GM’s Screen & Starter Adventure (for which I wrote the scenario), and our first major supplment, Sunward: the Inner System (for which I wrote the chapter on Mars). If you can’t make it to Gen Con, all three titles are available at Drivethru RPG, and your local game store should have them in August/September. Ask your FLGS to carry it!
This should be an exciting con. Eclipse Phase is up for four ENnie awards, we’re debuting new products, and we have a full slate of really excellent events on the con program. (I’m biased; I wrote one of them, Doctrine). The EP events are sold out currently, but don’t hesitate to stop by with a generic ticket. Old hands at Gen Con know that a table is sometimes light a player or two for the slot.
And please stop by the booth. We really enjoy talking to people who are interested in the game (heh… as long as you keep stories about your character’s exploits to a minimum).
