Project Update: Character Options: January Update

Hey folks!

Here's a small flurry of updates and news:

#1: Flexbot Confidential

Earlier this week we released Flexbot Confidential on DriveThruRPG and Posthuman.Shop, and we just updated it with a few corrections to bring it in line with the Character Options corrections.

Flexbot Confidential brings you more modular material for everyone's favorite modular morphs, including details on cyberbrains, cortical stacks, and multiple egos. From there it moves onto shapeshifting, gear assembly,Β  flexbot tricks, and further upgrades.

Project Update: Last Call for Character Options Corrections! πŸ“š

Hey everyone!

It's been a little over a week since this campaign closed, and thank you so much for your support and pledges!

With hundreds of pairs of backer eyes going over the book, a few mistakes have come to the surface β€” we'll be compiling corrections and updating the book in the near future. To get the updated PDF you won't have to take any action, and the printed book will contain those corrections!

If you've seen any typos or other mistakes in Character Options, please report them using this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1f_OHkW-u473MPD2UEHKOOIuGPN8gK4g0Wb5wG3Tx98k/edit

Or you can pop into the Character Options channel in our Discord: https://discord.gg/46vZc2vZHE

If you haven't downloaded Character Options yet, the link for doing so is in this backer update: https://www.backerkit.com/c/projects/posthuman-studios/eclipse-phase-character-options/updates/2662#top

In addition to finalizing the PDF and getting the book to the printers, we're working on preparing to make the enamel pin order, getting BackerKit's Pledge Manager set up, some upgrades to the shipping office, and all that sort of logistical stuff.

Again, thanks for your support!

Project Update: Eclipse Phase Character Options πŸ’Ύ Digital Backer Release

Adam here. I'm writing this on Sunday afternoon, tucked into a new-to-me Columbian coffee shop. I'm in Chicago for a few days to hang out and work with Sprite in person, and to see one of my favorite singers, Dessa.

I saw Dessa on Thursday in Minneapolis, collapsed with sore throat and feet after the show, woke up early on Friday morning and dashed to catch the Amtrak to Chicago. I worked all day on the train, rolled into Sprite's place around seven, caught up a little bit and did some more work. Nine PM I poured some vodka into a Red Bull, chugged it down, and promptly fell asleep. An almost perfect day, except I didn't get chance to play Baldur's Gate 3. Saturday I spent working until it was time to head across town to see Dessa again.

One of her songs, I Already Like You has a lyric that has always caught my ear:

"Fucked up the trust fall / Caught a concussion"

Running any kind of business, any kind of venture is a series of trust falls. The ongoing collaboration that you know as Posthuman Studios has been pushing forward long enough that it could legally drink. Along the way, we've taken a bunch of trust falls and tried to be holding hands underneath others doing the same. Of course there have been concussions.

If I work backwards, itemizing and categorizing those trust falls β€” caught or concussed β€”Β  there's one commonality to them: our fans always catch us. You support our Creative Commons releases. You back our crowdfunding campaigns. You sell out our games at Gen Con and then come to the booth to tell us how much fun you had. You share your stories, not just about your games but also how they have impacted your life, your friendships, your feelings about life, love, community, acceptance. And capitalism. Lots of feelings about capitalism.

So with that, we're letting everyone backing this campaign download the digital version of Eclipse Phase Character Options today β€” the link comes after this backer-only jump-cut:

I purchased the Morph Recognition Deck at GenCon back in 2022. Is anything different/ updated since then and is the quality any different? Just wondering if I need to pick up another.

Project Update: Morph Recognition Deck Upgrade, EP2 Reprint, and NPC File 2!

Eclipse Phase Character Options

As we wind up this week, glad to say that the Morph Recognition Deck Upgrade has been unlocked β€” at the same price as the original deck. If you'd been waiting to select it as an add-on, now is the time!

A few answers to FAQs that have come up on the way:

  • Yes, Character Options is Creative Commons-licensed!
  • The Character Options PDF will be released on November 20th or 21st.
  • We will add some more merchandise to the project later in the campaign as well!

Eclipse Phase Second Edition Reprint β€” Price Lock

We are incredibly close to needing to reprint Eclipse Phase Second Edition. It is possible that the cover price will have to be raised for the second printing. If you are getting EP2 via this campaign β€” by pledge level or add-on β€” you will lock in your copies at the current price.

Not Stretch Goals

We want to elevate the following information: if you back this campaign for $100 or more (not counting shipping) you will also get free digital copies of NPC File 2 and Your Whispering Muse when they are released! These titles are stretch goals from the Eclipse Phase Second Edition Kickstarter campaign, and they're both in writing/development now.

NPC File 2

If you're a Patreon subscriber, you'll have seen some NPC File 2 excerpts recently, but if you haven't we have some news about that book!

The original NPC File book included 33 NPCs and 9 variants, all packed into only 15 pages. Our initial plans for NPC File 2 were a little expanded, probably around 24 pages and 40 NPCs. As we outlined the book, ideas flowed and we ended up expanding the NPC list to 46 archetypes β€” and also 46 named NPCs for each archetype. We expected that we'd do a half page for each NPC, ending up with a book about 48 pages. Here's the complete list of NPC archetypes β€” those in green are written and laid-out (including their named compatriots, who I've redacted for now!).

NPC Archetype List β€” Green are written/laid out!


As we got into writing and initial graphic design it became obvious that plan wasn't feasible β€” we were simply trying to jam too much onto each page. So NPC File 2 will now be a ~96-page book, and we've shared some pages on our Patreon to certain backer levels. Here's a couple of those pages for you:

Artifex archetype and specific NPC Remy Manfletti


Once we've finished writing and layout we'll be commissioning art, and then the digital book will be available for supporting backers, and shortly after that available to the public!

Support

Thank you for your support of the Character Options campaign, and stay tuned for the PDF coming nearly next week!

I've always felt we could do with a bit more variety to Aptitude Templates. But when I saw the Patreon preview to the Random Aptitude table it felt even more needed than ever. There must be a balanced alternative for three new options, right?

I have the softcover edition of the Eclipase Phase 2E base manual, but it's from a couple of years ago (I think). After it was published it seems to me that some updates and fixes to the manual were released. Does this hardcover version include those updates and fixes?

Will we be able to upgrade or add extras to our pledge after the initial campaign ends (have to watch the monthly spend this close to Christmas, so being able to upgrade later would help)? Also, would it be possible to have any of the small scenarios available as print add-ons? DriveThru is ok for smaller stuff, but they don't always arrive in the best condition. Being in the UK I have avoided ordering them direct from your store as each was released because of the shipping costs, but if they were all available here combining the shipping cost makes them more affordable. Thank you
