Eclipse Phase Complete: USB Digital Archive Pre-Orders!

We've launched pre-orders for the Eclipse Phase Complete: USB Digital Archive — every single digital thing we've ever released for Eclipse Phase on a laser-engraved USB key for only $125 — more than 50% off buying each title individually!

This pre-order will close on Monday, August 10th.After that we'll place our order for the USB keys, and we will not be manufacturing more than pre-orders + 10%. We aim to ship the USB keys in late August/early September (depending on manufacturing time!).

It's also available in a bundle with the Eclipse Phase Second Edition core book + PDF, immediately downloadable and with shipping included for only $185. We'll ship the core book to you immediately as well!

Print Pre-Orders for Overrun and more!

Overrun, one of the stretch goals (Introductory Adventure) from the Eclipse Phase Second Edition Kickstarter is now available! Backers, see this update for information about your downloads!

We spent a lot of time working on Overrun — because we love good adventures, and we know reading and running adventures is how many people learn how a game works. We\'ve broken out paragraphs of text to clearly call out when players could/should make rolls, when stress tests could happen, key information the GM shouldn\'t forget, and more. We\'re eager to hear what you think about Overrun and the updated adventure presentation!

Take a look at the PDF preview of Overrun (If you\'re a GM, not a player — don\'t read ahead!)

Print + PDF Pre-Orders!

We are opening direct pre-orders for Print + PDF combos of Overrun, and also for print versions of an upcoming expanded version of the EP2 Character Pack — a title for you to fold, spindle, and mutilate. We plan on sending both books to print by May 22nd and ship them to you in early June. The first fifty pre-orders will all get an Eclipse Phase art print!

Direct pre-orders are extra important right now, so we can order accurate print runs. For these two projects, we\'re working with a printer that we\'ve done some very solid test runs with and had great service from. The books will be printed on the inside covers to sneak some additional stuff in for you as well.

If you\'re purely digital, Overrun is also up on DriveThruRPG — and the EP2 Character Pack PDF is free to download!

Eclipse Phase Second Edition Print on Demand & Overrun Pre-Orders

Here’s an update on the Posthuman stuff!

Eclipse Phase Second Edition Print on Demand

You can now grab Eclipse Phase Second Edition in softcover from DriveThruRPG, in both Standard Color and Premium Color. If you’re in the USA or Canada, these books will be printed and shipped from the USA. If you’re elsewhere in the world, they’ll print and ship from the UK!

In the past, we have not released print on demand versions of our hardcover books until those books are in low-stock situations and unlikely to be reprinted. Due to COVID-19 making worldwide availability of EP2 difficult we’ve taken this step to help out our international fans. We’ve always liked experiments — this is one of them.

We’ve also made Eclipse Phase first edition available in softcover.

What are the differences between these print on demand books and the offset-printed version of Eclipse Phase Second Edition?

The Offset-printed version of EP2:

  • Matte hardcover w/ spot gloss
  • Smyth-sewn binding
  • Printed on 80lb matte paper
  • Two ribbon bookmarks!
  • Contains corrections up to 1.1.1 errata.
  • Available on Posthuman.Shop

The Print on Demand versions of EP2:

  • Glossy softcover
  • Perfect binding (glued!)
  • Printed on 70lb uncoated paper
  • Contains corrections up to 1.2 errata.
  • Available on DriveThruRPG

Offset-printed copies of Eclipse Phase Second Edition are available from Posthuman.Shop, Indie Press Revolution, and game stores that order from IPR, ACD, or Alliance.

Overrun Print Pre-orders and PDF

When the Overrun PDF is made available we will also open up pre-orders for the Print + PDF bundle. This is another experiment — based on the number of pre-orders we will be doing a short print run, but the absolute best way to get a copy will be via the pre-order. Roughly two weeks into the pre-order we will lock into the print run size, and within a month of that we expect to have the books in hand, ready to ship!

Overrun is a gatecrashing op for Eclipse Phase:

  • Introductory Scenario: Overrun is a stand-alone adventure designed for Gatecrashing Ops team.
  • Campaign Play: Guidelines for Firewall, Gatecrashing, and Criminal Ops groups.
  • Locations: Details Teragula — an exoplanet beyond the pandora gates — its hostile marrow swamps, and the frontier terraforming outposts there.
