The electronic version of X-Risks is now available!

X-Risks is a sourcebook and creature catalog for Eclipse Phase. It details the dangers facing transhumanity:

  • Over 60 creature and machine descriptions, classified by challenge level.
  • Information on extinction threats, from AIs and aliens to nanoplagues and wormholes.
  • Coverage of the TITANs, exhumans, exsurgent virus, Factors, and other hostiles.
  • New exsurgent virus strains, psi sleights, and xenofungi.
  • Traps for high-tech dungeon crawls.

We'll announce a street date for the print version when it's confirmed. The book is currently at the printers.


We are also releasing the X-Risks Hack Pack, which includes 60 pieces of creature and machine threat art and 22 pieces of art from the rest of the book in 150 DPI PNG format.

Finally we have three new Eclipse Phase audio tracks from Scott Fox (iVardensphere) to accompany the X-Risks release: Hunter Killer, Fractal, and Seconds Before The Fall.

A Look at Eclipse Phase and DriveThruRPG’s "Metal List"

Most gamers are interested in numbers. Most business people are interested in numbers. So the numbers behind a gaming business ... well, they're fascinating. Not just for the sake of them, but for the story they tell, and the questions they prompt: Why did this work? Why didn't that work? Why did these two similar books sell very differently?

Over our years of publishing Eclipse Phase, we've tried a few experiments, changed tactics in response to feedback and numbers, followed our gut more than a couple times, and most importantly: made a bunch of great stuff that people have fun with at the gaming table.

OneBookShelf has sales accolades, the so-called "Metal List." They're one of the only public-facing ways in the game industry to gauge sales of one project against another. There's a couple important things to remember about the metal list:


What do those things mean for our standings on the metal list? The first doesn't have much impact: for most of our electronic titles, 90% of the OneBookShelf sales happen on the DriveThruRPG storefront. That number is normally higher for new titles, and then gradually drifts downward during the long tail, but still stays above 80%. We specifically link to DriveThruCards for card projects and DriveThruFiction for fiction.

The second has had more impact on some recent titles, due to the number of copies that were sold as part of the Transhuman Kickstarter. We still got compensated for these copies (although parsing exactly what each of those titles earned via the Kickstarter is tricky!), but OneBookShelf didn't, even though we used their system to send out complimentary copies (In the long term, OBS still benefits from this because it helps them gain new customers and retain old ones.)

Also regarding the second, Bundle of Holding sales pay the publisher directly and are fulfilled by OneBookShelf, but OneBookShelf is also paid a fulfillment percentage. We ran Eclipse Phase Bundles of Holding in June and December 2014, putting over a thousand copies of the books offered in people's hands. Well over a year later, people are still redeeming those bundles!

There's one other factor that has influenced some of our titles. For a couple of our early releases, Sunward and Gatecrashing, we distributed to full book as part of a Hack Pack sale. This divided the actual book's sales into two SKUs: the standalone PDF and the Hack Pack. This had a dual impact on our standings on the Metal List and the Top 100 chart: Sunward and Gatecrashing have depressed rankings, and their respective Hack Packs have higher rankings than other Hack Packs!

Below is a list of our Platinum/Gold/Electrum-level sellers. The titles in the lists are not in any particular order. What trends do you see? My answers are after the list!
