Eclipse Phase

Eclipse Phase: Dead Run

Earth may be a post-apocalyptic hellhole but at least you don't have to worry about the TSA when traveling. Last year I ran an improvised game of Eclipse Phase for RJ, Aaron, and Drew. Since I had little time to prep, we used pregenerated characters (with some customization) and a plot I came up with fairly quickly. Dead Run is about a Firewall team sent to Earth to pick up a survivor and then check out a potential anti-TITAN weapon detected near the Cheyenne Mountains. Will they survive the horrors? Find out in Dead Run!

Eclipse Phase: Know Evil episode 17

This is actually a safer and saner plan than what the Firewall team actually did in this episode. In this episode of Know Evil, the Firewall team pursues multiple agendas as they attempt to blend in with the scum swarm society. SAIRAC, the AGI, must learn to become more human in order to avoid detection when they leave the relative safety of the swarm. Bartleby must fulfill several Firewall missions. Gerrard has a chance to learn the truth of his own past on Earth. All the while, the team is pursued by their enemies, both personal and otherwise. As things start to go awry, the team decides to raid a group of criminals as part of a Firewall mission. Of course the raid does not go well…

They have a chance to research the object retrieved from the bank safety deposit vault, catch up with their personal lives, and perform some side missions for Firewall.

Eclipse Phase: Know Evil episode 14

Planning a bank robbery isn't exciting. The robbery itself, yes, very exciting.. On the plus side, not much chance of death in the planning stages. Special: Download the planning documents used by the RPPR group to plan the bank heist.

Synopsis: Robbing a bank is unheard of in the age of Eclipse Phase. The Erato bank is as heavily guarded as a military installation, with dozens of armed drones, guards, security systems and AGI infosec specialists protecting it. However, the Firewall team must retrieve an item from a safety deposit box in order to continue their investigation of Manjappa and the source of the Know Evil virus. But a bank robbery is no easy thing to plan. Furthermore, Firewall has to authorize this mission first, which requires a meeting of the proxies.
