Eclipse Phase: Ego Hunter.
Game Master: Rick Heinz
Player limit: 5
Eclipse Phase is a game of Trans-human Conspiracy and Horror. Designed by those fine gentleman and ladies at Posthuman Studios, the game is set in the far future where space is colonized and earth has been abandoned. Humanity has achieved functional immortality through the process of uploading their conscious (called an Ego) into a digitized state and then downloading them back into fresh bodies, called a Morph.
The system is a percentile based dice system with a heavy emphasis on individual skill. Players looking to cut right to the comparisons will find it supports both a World of Darkness roleplaying style and can also cater to those who are looking for Rifts style combat. The typical game setting has characters playing agents of a shadow organization moving to stop threats that humans themselves create with the potential to cause the extinction of humanity. With fully supported settings on Mars, Luna, Titan, Jupiter, and everything in-between.
In this particular story and one shot, you will undertake the role of individuals set on Mars.... and... that is all you need to know for now. :)
For more information on the game system and setting please go to: http://www.eclipsephase.com/ and play a lot of Dead Space. Or Watch Aliens.
Players will need: 2 D10's. Pencils and Paper. Character Sheets and system explanations will be provided. Coffee is also highly recommended.

Additional note from your Meetup organizers –
Naperville Freaks, Geeks, and Weirdos is happy to welcome Fair Game customers to join us in enjoying this one-shot adventure RPG Meetup event. Fair Game customers, you will need to join our Meetup page and RSVP yourself to the game of your choice if you wish to have a guaranteed seat. We highly recommend you do this as games have limited seats. If a game is already full, you are welcome to add yourself to the wait list and you will be notified if a spot opens up.
To all members:
Due to the limited number of seats per game, the attendance policy will be strictly enforced. You are expected to arrive at Fair Game no later than 3:00pm and be ready to game until the game ends or the store closes at 9:00pm, whichever comes first. Please review the Attendance Policy in the discussion thread if you have any questions.
You will only sign up to participate in one game of your choice.
For anyone questioning, "Why no Pathfinder or D&D 4E games?" - Most local game hubs already cater to running D&D and Pathfinder games. We love those game systems as much as the next person, but it’s time to give some of the other games we love the spotlight for a change.
Finally, please respect the GM of this game. This event would not be possible without them. Thank you!
