Panopticon's street date was August 31st, which means it should be in your local game store or on the way there by now! Give them a call to make sure they have a copy set aside for you, and in the meantime, here's a preview of the Habitats chapter! And if you haven't seen them yet, there's a Table of Contents preview and a look at the Surveillance chapter.
For those folks who attended Gen Con and played in one of the scheduled Eclipse Phase games featuring a new scenario -- we'd love to get your playtest feedback. We will likely be publishing these scenarios in the future, so any comments on how the game what, how it might go better, any information that was missing, and so on will be helpful. You'll get playtester credit! Send your comments in using our Contact form.
On another note, I recently updated the fan creations on the Resources page. The new material includes:
* The 3rd issue of The Eye fanzine
* An updated character generation spreadsheet from Kindalas, including the new rules from Panopticon
Gen Con 2011 is in the history books as the Best Four Days of Gaming of the year. With an announced attendance of 36,000 people, it was certainly a successful convention for the organizers -- and for Posthuman Studios!
For Posthuman Studios, Gen Con preparation was a bigger challenge and drain on our resources than we originally anticipated this year, in part due to the dissolution of our partnership with Sandstorm just two months before the show. One of our partners, Brian Cross, also acquired a new job right before the con that required a cross-country move during Gen Con instead of being there. On top of that, he had to defend his thesis in the month leading up to the convention. However, we are thrilled for the newly minted Dr. Brian Cross, and only wished we could have celebrated his new doctorate and job with him. We will get around to that.
We soldiered on, as we always do. Adam flew into Chicago a few days early, and we went on a mega-shopping trip for last-minute booth supplies on Tuesday, picked up very important people at O'Hare on Wednesday morning, and convoyed down to Indianapolis.
It's release day for the electronic versions of Panopticon and the Eclipse Phase Core Hack Pack. You're all eager to dive right in, so here are the links!:
