Your body is a shell. Change it.
Death is a disease. Cure it.
Extinction is approaching. Fight it.
With exponentially accelerating technologies we reached out into the solar system. We re-forged our bodies and minds. We achieved immortality through the digitization of our minds, resleeving from one biological or synthetic body to the next at will.
Yet our race towards extinction was not slowed. Billions died as our technologies rapidly bloomed into something beyond control … further transforming humanity into something else, scattering us throughout the solar system, and reigniting vicious conflicts. Nuclear strikes, biowarfare plagues, nanoswarms, mass uploads … a thousand horrors nearly wiped humanity from existence.
We still survive … divided into a patchwork of restrictive inner collectivist habitats, tribal networks, and new experimental societal models. We have spread to the outer reaches of the solar system and even gained foot holds in the galaxy beyond.
But we are no longer solely “human” … we have evolved into something simultaneously more and different—something transhuman.

Eclipse Phase: More Than A Game
Eclipse Phase is a post-apocalyptic game of conspiracy and horror. Humanity is enhanced and improved, but also battered and bitterly divided. Technology allows the re-shaping of bodies and minds, but they also create opportunities for oppression and put the capabilities for mass destruction in the hands of everyone. And other threats lurk in the devastated habitats of the Fall, dangers both familiar and alien.
In this harsh setting, the players participate in a cross-faction conspiracy that seeks to protect transhumanity from threats both internal and external. Along the way, they may find themselves hunting for prized technology in a gutted habitat falling from orbit, risking the hellish landscapes of a ruined Earth, or following the trail of a terrorist through militarized stations and isolationist habitats. Or they may find themselves stepping through a Pandora Gate, a wormhole to distant stars and the alien secrets beyond ….
