Eclipse Phase: ‘Continuity’ PDF Available

November 29th, 2010 No comments

Eclipse Phase: Continuity (cover art)Over the weekend, Posthuman reported they’ve released Marc Huete’s Continuity, the fourth published scenario for Eclipse Phase, as a PDF. I watched a few tables at Gen Con playing this one, and it looks like a ton of fun. In convention play, the players stepped into the roles of multiple forks of the same person, then worked together to unravel the circumstances of their original’s demise. The PDF release includes the set-up for putting PCs from your own campaign into the same situation.

This comes right on the heels of the next major Eclipse Phase book, Gatecrashing, going to the printer. Gatecrashing explores the alien worlds on the other side of the Pandora Gates. It includes lots of setting material and many new character build options, including new gear, morphs, and augmentations.

I didn’t work on either of these projects, but having read the manuscripts for both, I highly recommend them to EP fans. Continuity is available through DriveThru RPG now. We don’t have a street date on Gatecrashing yet.

Wikipedia doesn’t ask for donations very often, so when they do, I take notice. Consider supporting the Wikimedia Foundation. I use it every day, and I’m sure a lot of you do, too.

I’m not sure who created this, but whoever they are, I’d like to shake their hand.

Nothing in this post ain’t been said before. Steampunk is hot because, like paranormal romance, people’re buying it. Tor & io9 aren’t “foisting” anything. They’re responding to the market. Still, a good summary of all that’s problematic in steampunk.
