I've been reading Eclipse Phase, and it seems good. How come /tg/ doesn't talk about it?

Here it is if you want it.

>> No.14601874

Mix it with Mass Effect and you got yourself a fucking awesome game.
The EP/ME setting fluff can be found in various writefag threads in /tg/ archive.

I once participated in such game. PCs were Firewall agents in Shanxi during the first contact war.
In the end, our hacker got most kills. Turian groundforces weren't that prepared against having their commanding battleship plummet on their heads you know...

>> No.14601883


Because it sucks.

>> No.14601999

EP has a lot of awesome stuff that Mass Effect does not, and the core EP fluff (which is the greatest part of the game) doesn't lend itself well to leading into a ME game. For instance Transhumanity is in no condition to support a war machine. However, despite that, that game sounds like an awesome one to play in.

>> No.14602013

The mechanics are a pain in the ass to deal with, and nobody ever wants to try playing an RPG that isn't D&D.

It took me four hours to make my first character. There's a lot of searching through the book for rules that should be on the same page together, but are actually 100 pages apart. Lots and lots of flipping through and searching for this and that, it really needs to be better organized.

and the mechanics themselves are poorly balanced and more complex than they have any need to be.

It's got good fluff, a good setting, plenty of plot hooks, but the game is killed by the mechanics.

>> No.14602018


It's an awesome game, but no-one seems to play it much. I've tried to spread interest for it, though.


It does, and it doesn't. You have to rewrite the fluff a little. I wouldn't mind trying it, personally, though the whole "No AIs Allowed" thing Council Space has going would need to be rejiggered.

>> No.14602032


Yeah, pretty much this. I tried converting it for the Storyteller System once, but that didn't go so great

>> No.14602043

The system is horrible and the setting sucks.

>> No.14602070

I personally think the fluff is hard to get in to. My players didn't want to play because their was no fear of death or danger. If you died you just came back, and because of the nature of the ST-Player relationship they know that even if they fail at this particular mission, the consequences won't be game ending because I want to keep playing as much as they do.

The lack of death in the setting really kept my players from wanting to play it, though they hardly gave it a chance once they read they could respawn, so I think a large portion of their complaints were them making up excuses for their disinterest.

If the game was exactly the same but didn't have the ability for people to simply respawn when they died, I think it'd be a much easier sell as it'd just be Dead Space: The RPGening.

>> No.14602088

They know it's possible to just ... play it in a derivative setting, right? If they want perma-death, give them perma-death.

>> No.14602091

Is it really that overcomplicated? That's a shame, it seems so interesting.

I'm surprised that /tg/ hasn't already reworked the ruleset into a better one. After all, this board is renowed for getting shit done.

>> No.14602098


For me, it was the challenge of getting into the mindset of someone with ubiquitous information access. It just left me stumped how much could be done 'by remote', especially since I was going for a hacker-pistolier-character, so I was always frowning to myself and asking myself 'why am I not just sitting in a VR hottub while I'm doing all this espionage?'

>captcha: matedo SENSORY

>> No.14602118


First of all, there's fates worse than death. Having your players be lost on an alien world, or slowly going mad, or what have you, this is more terrifying than dying. EP is a game where you might end up fighting your players to keep them from killing themselves.

That said, death is not cost free, nor is it a good thing, nor are you always assured of coming back.

That said, how is it any different from most other games? If your players have ever played D&D, ask them how it's any different to a Raise Dead spell.


Easy answer: No company in the world is stupid enough to leave all their secure servers on a wireless connection. All that stuff will be hardwired.

Truthfully, though, you very well could be if you played an Infomorph. Your character could be relaxing and sipping digital champagne in the Ghostrider Module of one of their companions, carefully hacking their way through while their friends fight off security bots.

>> No.14602133

Right, and when we did a trial run of the game, my players had barely read the book so they didn't understand the concept of something being outside The Mesh when they tried to hack something from a distance and failed.

It was just really hard to sell my player on "Survival Horror space game with no physical death but slow mental death instead."

They didn't really understand that the Ego points were basically the DnD equivalent of HP, while their bodies were expendable the mind couldn't be repaired, kind of thing.

The whole thing was just a really hard sell for me.

>> No.14602142

Also renowned for being a fickle bitchfest - see the warning sticky on GK codex

>> No.14602152

Like I said, my player's are not really "Horror game" type of players really.

EP just appeals to a really small audience. In regards to the DnD thing, yeah I outlaw Raise Dead rituals that don't leave the person raised a mindless husk or at the very most a dark reanimation.

This just seemed like too big a vestige of the setting to just cut out though, which is why my players wouldn't play.

>> No.14602454

I really like the fluff, especially that the ego is the most valuable thing instead of maximizing how long you live. The mechanics, despite being built ground up with this setting in mind, made me cringe. Why percentile? Is there another system that this has been used with, like GURPS for example?

>> No.14602483


Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and Dark Heresy come to mind. I enjoy those systems.

>> No.14602511

Same here, "horror" doesn't do anything for me anymore. Due to a really shitty, horrific job dealing with child rapists trying to kill me, I now conflate horror with "annoyance, boredom, and occasionally comedy"

Cthuloid horror, or anything that depends on OH NOES, THE GRIBBLIES or stuff on the state of human consciousness falls completely flat, when compared, to say, a crackhead uncle using a crackbaby as a blunt object to batter his nephew with as they wrassle down the stairs (thus falling onto the crack baby)*

The high respawn cost (and lets face it, that's what it is) in EP irks me, especially when so much of it encourages the GM to break the players stuff (i.e. their body). Stuff like the exsurgent virus isn't a source of horror, it's an annoying SAVEORSUCK roll. "Derp, didn't roll that dodge thar? Looks like you just lost all the resources you had put into that body."

*Uncle's explanation: "Whatchoo want me to do? I'm a crackhead!"

>> No.14602520

The simple reason no one talks about it is because the threads alway get shitted up by it sucks with no reasoning behind it types. Most of the hate comes from people that just don't get the whole transhumanist thing or are against it for some reason. If you can click with the whole physical death is not a problem any more and it is more a mental thing or possibly hideous possibly alien virus data/mind corruption you need to fear then it is all good.
Ignore everyone that says the mechanics are a pain in the ass, it is a simple percentile test to get under skill or every now and then stat x 2 or 3 for really odd stuff.
Character creation on the other hand is a pain in the ass but grab the spreadsheet from here
and it isn't too bad either.

Custom Biomorph Creation Rules
1) Start with a basic Flat Biomorph. (Pg. 139, EP Core)

2) Assign Implants, calculating the CP cost using the CP values provided. After adding up all of the individual CP costs for the entire Implant package, round the CP cost to the nearest five to calculate the final Implant CP cost.

3) Assign Maximum Aptitude values, calculating the CP cost using the CP values provided.

4) Assign Durability, calculating the CP cost using the CP values provided. Would Threshold is innately linked to a Morphs Durability. Wound Threshold equals Durability divided by five.

5) Assign Advantages and Disadvantages, calculating the CP cost using the CP values provided.

6) Calculate the Credit Cost of the Custom Morph. Credit Cost is calculated using a Threshold system. When the total CP cost of a Morph moves over the Thresholds the Credit Cost increases to the specified cost.

>> No.14603088


Implant Costs
Basic Implant Package = Free
One Low Cost Implant = +1.5CP
One Moderate Cost Implant = +3.3CP
One High Cost Implant = +20CP

Maximum Aptitude Costs/Returns
Every Point above Flat Baseline (20) = +1CP
Every Point below Flat Baseline (20) = -1CP

Every Five Points of Durability above Flat Baseline (30) = +5CP
Every Five Points of Durability below Flat Baseline (30) = -5CP

Advantage and Disadvantage Costs/Returns
Every Positive Point of Aptitude Bonus = +1CP
Every Negative Point of Aptitude Bonus = -1CP
Every Positive Point of Skill Bonus = +1CP
Every Negative Point of Skill Bonus = -1CP
Positive Morph Traits have a CP Cost equal to those given on pgs. 145-148 EP Core
Negative Morph Traits have a CP Return equal to half those given on pgs. 148-152 EP Core
Unlisted Advantage = +5CP-+10CP (Subject to GM approval)

Credit Cost Thresholds
CP Cost is Greater than 25 - Credit Cost = Expensive
CP Cost is Greater than 40 - Credit Cost = Expensive(40,000)
CP Cost is Greater than 70 - Credit Cost = Expensive(50,000 Rare)

Alright, so, I've played a few campaigns within EP.... And some EP-derived shenanigans.

Long story short - Character Creation can take a bitchlong time. Like, first time I made a character was a good 3-4 hours. Skills and synergies can be uber-broken, as a GM I'd advise limiting starting skill maxes to 70. Also, USE DIFFICULTY PENALTIES FOR PITY'S SAKE. Otherwise you'll have characters with 100+ points only failing on a 99 (auto critical fail). Combat can be brutally short, and anyone with too much money can easily get crazy high armor. Limit the number of things that can stack. (Shell/Skin, Under-Armor, Armor, and 1 armor mod is a decent start)

As for stories. Hrm....

My octomorph nano-builder engineer type munchkin king was a king of gibbing people with his shredder. GM needed to use better rules for fabbing, as I was usually able to make shit out of thin air (had a few nanohives for stripping the surroundings). Before that, my synthmorph scientist/engineer was the tank (super high armors due to stacking and selection), and also a king of the gib. I also had a neo-neanderthal who was a pretty decent demolitions monkey but shit in combat 'cause I had a beam weapon (agonizer? It's shit, go with a plasma weapon or something non-beam).

It has potential, but takes a seasoned GM and a fucktonne of research into the game itself to run a good game.

>> No.14605084

Those in this thread complaining about being unable to die in Eclipse Phase have clearly only skimmed the rulebook, at best.

There are plenty of ways to die. Especially if you get put on a government hit list.

The cortical stacks most characters have, for starters, is not an invincible device. It can be hacked, it can be crushed and destroyed. That "kills" the character up until their most recent backup.

If you have someone delete their backup, then the player is now dead.

Or you could infect the player at some point with an exsurgent virus that makes them go insane. How far back were you infected? How many backups are corrupted by the virus? If anyone finds out about you, you're a dead man. They won't take any chances, they'll just delete you outright.

And then you can even play as straight up, non-enhanced humans with no cortical stacks. A group from Jupiter, perhaps with orders to sabotage some transhumanist faggotry. Or a stalker-esque survivor group on Earth. Since you don't have cortical stacks, once you die, you die for real.

>> No.14607147

Besides all that, death itself isn't exactly something you just brush off in Eclipse Phase. You can take mental trauma from the experience, pushing you on the razor edge between sanity and insanity. You can lose a fortune that was invested in your body and equipment, you can lose experience by being forced to play from a backup. You can lose all of that at once.

The system gives you a billion ways to make death harsh and interesting, and permanent if you choose. There's really no excuse to go "well you can't die, so I don't like it". That really just means you didn't even read the book to begin with.

All that aside, it's nice for a DM to be able to really go aggressive on his players without worrying about them all being permanently killed and the campaign ending right then and there. When players do something stupid, the DM doesn't have to hold back, they get killed, and learn from the experience or load from a backup. If anything, being able to have permanent and non-permanent death just makes the setting and game more flexible for what people want.

Go find the EP/ME thread. The OP of it made some slight adjustments to the history of Transhumanity, but it is almost the same.

As to the ability to wage a war. Transhumanity is a technological singularity that far surpasses anything the known galactic races posses.

Transhumanities technology makes council race tech look like utter shit. This allowed for relatively few soldiers needed for when the first contact war broke out.

In short Transhumanity fucked the Turians up bad, almost no contest. Hell the Firewall and Project Ozma hackers thought the Turian security systems were decoys because they were so easy to hack.

Chameleon Skin: The morph’s skin is augmented
with complex chromatophores so that it changes color
like the skin of a chameleon or an octopus. The morph
can match the appearance of almost any color and
most patterns. This provides a +20 modifi er to Infi ltration
Tests to avoid being seen or noticed, as long as
the character is stationary or not moving faster than
a slow walk. The character must be nude or wearing
smart clothing (p. 325) of the same color/pattern. If
incompletely camoufl aged, or if moving faster, reduce
the modifi er to +10. In addition to blending in, the
character can also consciously change the color and
pattern of their skin to deliberately stand out (+20 on
Perception Tests to notice) or simply to produce attractive
or interesting colors or patterns. [Low]

Sex Switch: A complex suite of alterations allows
the character to switch their physical sex to male,
female, hermaphrodite, or neuter. This change is
mentally triggered but takes approximately 1 week to
complete. [Moderate]

Submachine Guns: SMGs use pistol ammunition,
but are medium-sized (p. 297) and may fire in
semi-auto, burst fire, or full auto modes. They typically
are designed in a bullpup configuration for
close quarters operations and are ideal for tactical
and strike teams. [Moderate]

Electronic Rope: The fibers in this rope can be
controlled electronically, making it move in a snakelike
fashion, stiffen up, and
even wrap around objects.
Typically comes in a 50-
meter length capable of
supporting 250 kg. [Low]

>> No.14615288

Body Armor (Heavy): Similar to light body armor,
but with extra protective layers, often ergonomically
manufactured to conform to a specifi c character’s
body, and an environmental seal with climate control
to protect the wearer from hostile environments. It
provides an Armor Value of 13/13. [Moderate]

Helmet(Heavy, Full): This armor accessory is usually worn with
body armor or a battle suit. Light helmets are open,
whereas full helmets latch on and provide an environmental
seal with a 12 hour supply of air. Light helmets
provide an Armor Value bonus of +2/+2, whereas full
helmets add +3/+3. Helmets are often equipped with
an ecto (p. 325), a radio booster (p. 313), and sensors
equal to specs (see p. 325). [Trivial]

Backup Insurance: In the event of verifiable
death, or after a set period of being missing, backup
insurance will arrange for your cortical stack to be
retrieved and your ego downloaded into another
morph. If the cortical stack cannot be retrieved, your
most recent backup is used. Most policies require
that the holder provide a backup to be uploaded
into secure storage at least twice a year. This industry
works in a manner similar to insurance underwriting
in terms of cost and individuals engaged in high risk professions can expect to pay a premium for the service.
Additionally, attempts to retrieve a cortical stack
are minimal unless one wants to pay for some extra
effort (a thriving industry of paramilitary ego-repo
operatives exists for this purpose). [Low to Moderate

Furies are combat morphs. These transgenic human
upgrades feature genetics tailored for endurance,
strength, and refl exes, as well as behavioral modifi cations
for aggressiveness and cunning. To offset tendencies
for unruliness and macho behavior patterns, furies
feature gene sequences promoting pack mentalities and
cooperation, and they tend to be biologically female.

The gay people who hump each other and jam their dicks in each others hair and believe they carry the spirit of a 5000 year old flaming god of gaping assholes are considered WEIRDOs, even by other gay people. In furdom, that's NORMAL.

*hump each other in public, that is. The LARP never invited them back.

Think about it,
You were say, a former cadet of officer and you just saw everything you would have or did swore to protect be destroyed and then locked under the grid in a nigh inaccessible area with the entire survivors turning their back on your entire values.

What do you do? Few would start doing the plotting and empire building, most would try to live by with resentment others would try a coping mechanism to vent out and act out their frustration, with sex , party and doing whatever would get them money trough the thing that was mostly empathised by the military from a civilian POV, Force , a thing projected upon the characters mentality, and then reinforced by its actions.

Thanks for the speed tip.

How would you advice me to get it, and what should i drop for it?

>> No.14615465

No clue, but I've never used that many skills. The implant that gives you +1 speed and +5 ref, I believe, is 20cp. Drop skills based on Ref, since you'll be getting it back anyways.

Also, more rep. Networking is useless without a decent rep score (60 to 80)

>> No.14615504


I was rather wanting to keep the base characteristic as high as possible, so as to have lots of skills at mediocre level to compliment when i inevitably lose the morph to get me lots of usable skills for support roles of the party besides the obvious Hulk Smash/Connan Barbarian archetype.

I think I'll drop the sex switch and chameleon skin, as they had no other purpose but fun rp of the od situation, like say getting in bed with someone then sneaking out without anyone noticing and the like...

Any way for me to link speed to my ego?

question about the sex switch and fury morph:

the sex switch goes to a hormonal and chemical level of change, right? not just a cosmetic one , since it needs weeks to accomplish its task...

Shouldn't that be , dangerous for a fury? More exactly dangerous for those around said fury once she becomes a not so regulated and controlled male fury?
Because I think Male fury's are quite rare and rather special more relaxed kind of types while this character seems to be the hotheaded bull raging psychopath.... wont changing into a male make it, dunno, a fucking berserker in the true and literal sense of the word?

>> No.14616928

Nope. Here's why:

1) The bit about most Furies being female is fluff. There's no rules about the difference between male and female Furies. If you want to add in a rule saying male Furies have to roll Willpower avoid RIP AND TEAR, go ahead. But its not official.

2) If you're adding the sex change mod (or any hormone-based/affecting one) to a Fury (or any biomorph really), its going to be tailored to the morph. Again, no rules for what happens if you add Male Worker Pod Sex Changer to a Female Fury so its a non-issue.
