Lookie Here

Received a package today with my advance copy of the EP Gamemaster Pack. While the rest are still on the boat from overseas, I thought I'd share the experience with those of you waiting to get your hands on the physical thing. Here's the still-sealed nice and hefty package (the cardboard is a very sturdy stock):


And here's what it looks like opened, with the screen set up:

Re: Lookie Here

I have the hack pack edition from Drivethru RPG and longing for the actual physically there object
Any ETA for it? will it be May or September?

if it's the latter, I'll have to have the pdf printed out on a long, strong paper as temporary measure

The shipment is due to arrive at the warehouse next month, but the current situation where Posthuman Studios is extracting itself from Catalyst may mean that there are some delays getting it out to stores. We're working to minimize that and get it out as soon as possible of course.

so the delivery date circa May 12th given on my order receipt's update by Amazon is totally unreachable?
Good thing I bought the pdf then! I totally dig the game, and I didn't get to play it yet!

btw, what's the habitat we're seeing on the cover?

There is a small possibility it might hit stores in May, but it seems unlikely. Hopefully soon after that though.

Just an FYI -- Amazon's dates very rarely seem based in reality, so they're not the best source for accurate dates.

It's actually a ship that features in the adventure. (Disregard the moons/planets in the background, that was the artist's stylistic interpretation of the scene we asked for; it's not realistic in terms of actual setting.)

Re: Lookie Here

that's the ship from Glory?
I was picturing something quite different, myself
more like the Vees' mothership, SGU's Destiny or that huge ship in Pandorum (which is more or less taking place around the same time as EP, and is among your listed)

All the same, I like it! kudos to the artist!

Heh... so was I. But no one's invented a mind control laser that works on illustrators yet. ;) ...nor, I think, should they.

I love the illo, but GMs who want to use it as a visual aid when showing their players the exterior might want to provide a bit of description of the toroidal rotating section where the crew quarters are. From this illo, it looks like a disc with an "up," but it's really a wheel (i.e., empty in the center) with spokes connecting to the rest of the station (spun for gravity, which I needn't explain for this audience...).

Re: Lookie Here

I'm trying to find screenshots from Defying Gravity or Virtuality
the ships in there aremore like the schematics in the scenario

The ship in Red Planet works too

Hello Everyone

It's mighty cool that Gamemaster Pack is finally out.

But does this mean that second printing of the core book will be available again some time soon?
I sure hope so!
