Who would have guessed that modular bodies would be so popular amongst transhumanists, open source nerds, and those who have a folder labelled Fun & Games that includes Excel and RStudio?
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, flexbot tricks, and further upgrades!
Flexbot Confidential is an 11-page digital sourcebook for Eclipse Phase Second Edition available on DriveThruRPG and Posthuman.Shop!
Backers have received the Character Options digital version and a corrected update is on the way. That corrected update is what will be printed, and we aim to have the book at the printer by mid-January.
We will open BackerKit for order fulfillment and pre-orders after the books ship from printer to us. We anticipate this to be in March 2024.
Beyond Character Options
We'll have a couple small titles coming out in the next few months, and then we'll be dealing with all the logistics of fulfilling Character Options and the Morph Recognition Deck.
After that there's the NPC File 2 book to look forward to, along with Your Whispering Muse, the "Space Combat" book we've been working on via Patreon, and a revamp to the very first Eclipse Phase adventure: Mind the WMD, from the first edition Quick-Start Rules.
Monthly Projects: Our Patreon delivers community-voted projects, later integrated into various formats.
Early Content: Patreon supporters receive playtest drafts and more, with exciting plans for 2024.
Current Project: December's focus is on revising Mind the WMD.
Posthuman Studios and Communications
In today's changing social media landscape, we're focusing on direct communication channels:
We value your engagement and presence! Stay connected for the latest updates and discussions.
Thanks for Your Support!
The tabletop game business remains challenging, and our best way forward is keeping a close relationship with our fans. Beyond the above, we have some great stuff planned for later this year and we look forward to bringing it to you!
The Character Options BackerKit is heading into the last few days, so now is the time to support this campaign and the future of Eclipse Phase. All backers already have access to the Character Options digital edition so you can start making new characters immediately. The book is finished and will be going to print shortly after the campaign closes so we plan to deliver books in the first quarter of 2024!
Character Options brings lifepath character creation to Second Edition, as well as updating and adding new morphs into the game, so you truly have a body for every possible situation or scene!
The campaign has fully-funded Character Options in hardcover, as well as an upgraded Morph Recognition Deck.
A lot of campaigns are loaded-up with stretch goals, but this one isn't. After we've produced Character Options and the Morph Recognition Deck, funds from this campaign will be used to reprint Eclipse Phase Second Edition in the glorious hardcover cloth bookmarked form you expect from us at Posthuman Studios.
It's possible that we'll have to raise the print price on this reprint, so all supporters of this campaign that add Eclipse Phase Second Edition hardcover to their rewards will lock in the current price.
There's an easy backer level that includes both Character Options and Eclipse Phase Second Edition, add-ons for the Morph Recognition Deck, and also a bunch of merchandise — including the brand new Octomorph t-shirt.
Posthuman Studios is bringing their next book, Eclipse Phase Character Options, to BackerKit for crowdfunding in September! We had copies of the Advance Version at Gen Con 2023 — the book is complete and ready for print. The digital version will be available for backer download early in the campaign.
Eclipse Phase Character Options features an extensive Lifepath Character Creation system, ideal for building characters while learning the Eclipse Phase setting at the same time. Beyond that, the new Morph Recognition Guide includes every morph from Eclipse Phase Second Edition, new morphs, and morphs converted from first edition — well over 100 bodies to slide your ego into!
The Morph Types section includes an overview of the morph rules, including a new category — core morphs — those designed to run habitats or ships.
The book wraps up with morph creation rules, new traits, new ware, rules for identifying morphs, knock-off morphs, and elite and limited-edition morphs.
Character Options gives you all the options you need to create the transhuman of your dreams!
The pre-launch page is live on BackerKit — sign up to get notifications about when the campaign will launch. We'll be funding the hardcover edition of Character Options, an alternative softcover wire-o bound version (only available directly from us), and some modest and related stretch goals!
Print fulfillment will be done in partnership with Atlas Games, and digital rewards from DriveThruRPG.com!
