  • Breaking Up Is The Best Thing

    We are changing how we handle one of our electronic releases: The Gamemaster Pack (GM Screen + Glory). Originally, you bought both of these components together, for $10, or $15 for the Hack Pack version. Now, they have been split apart so you can buy just one "half" of the Gamemaster's Pack.



    If you have already bought the Gamemaster Pack, you don't have any reason to buy these new versions; this is a packaging change, not a content change. If we update the content in the GM Screen or Glory in the future, you will still get your free updates.


    It makes a lot of sense to bundle a GM Screen with an adventure (or other GM-centric material) in print. It's really difficult to sell small adventures (as Glory is, at 24 pages) through retail. The low price point combined with the lack of durability makes these books riskier and less profitable for retailers. Bundling an adventure with a GM Screen is the accepted "sneaky but not really" method of publishing a small adventure in a format that game stores will happily sell.

    This short adventure for Eclipse Phase takes the characters to the Venusian aerostat of Parvarti. While Parvarti is well known as a place of lust and pleasure, what they encounter involves little of that!

  • Gen Con 2010 Report

    "What the hell just happened here?" — Brian Cross.

    Gen Con 2010 has come and gone, leaving us thrilled, overwhelmed, and exhausted.

    The reception for Eclipse Phase at the con was exceptionally positive. To our own amazement, the Eclipse Phase Core Rulebook walked away with three ENnie Awards. We received a Gold for Best Writing, a sound testament to the great work and ideas put in by our talented authors (Jack Graham, John Snead, Rob Boyle, Brian Cross, Davidson Cole, Lars Blumenstein, and Tobias Wolter). We also received Silvers for Best Cover Art (thank you Stephan Martiniere!) and Product of the Year. Considering that we were beaten by Pathfinder -- an unstoppable behemoth given its large fan base -- in both of those categories, we consider both of those to be absolute victories.
