So Eclipse Phase is off to layout. In fact, about half the book is laid out already, and we're starting on the proofread. The art has also been rolling in, so we'll get some previews of that posted soon!
- In re-reading the interview I conducted with bluealien.org at GenCon, I realized that I made a comment regarding RedBrick's upcoming Equinox game that could be misinterpreted due to my poor wording. Such is the nature of interviews.
As I was trying to explain, some of the original ideas for Eclipse Phase started back when I was working as the line developer for Shadowrun, which is actually part of the same universe as Earthdawn. Both games were originally published by FASA Corporation. According to their shared cosmology, magic flows in and out of the world, and each magic-rich or magic-poor cycle is counted as a different age. Earthdawn represented the Fourth World, at the peak of its magic cycle, while Shadowrun represents the beginning of the Sixth World, when magic is just returning.
- We have a major in-house deadline for EP looming on the horizon, so all of our efforts are going towards making that happen. Next week we'll be back on track with the blog posts and will also be catching up on any questions still unanswered in the forums.
