Eclipse Phase is a tabletop roleplaying game of post-apocalyptic transhuman conspiracy and horror.
An "eclipse phase" is the period between when a cell is infected by a virus and when the virus appears within the cell and transforms it. During this period, the cell does not appear to be infected, but it is.
Players take part in a cross-faction secret network dubbed Firewall that is dedicated to counteracting "existential risks" — threats to the existence of transhumanity, whether they be biowar plagues, self-replicating nanoswarms, nuclear proliferation, terrorists with WMDs, net-breaking computer attacks, rogue AIs, alien encounters, or anything else that could drive an already decimated transhumanity to extinction.
Dear all, I would like to start to discuss about an Eclipse Phase campaign.
I would like first to play a couple of shots just to get practice with the rules.
You can download simply the Quick Start Rules and read the first 22 pages for general info about the setting and the basic rules for playing.
I'm going to print these 22 pages so we can use them as a reference for a short period. The idea then is to migrate towards the Core Rule Book that contains a lot more rules, but better reaching that level gradually. Let's see how many want to join.
