A team of Firewall Sentinels on the trail of a missing Titanian scientist head to one of their target’s frequent hangouts, perhaps the Saturnian system’s most bizarre destination: MeatHab. An outlandish piece of transhuman performance art that has attracted scum, other artists and wackos, MeatHab is a kilometer-long cylinder of vat-grown flesh that is possibly inhabited by the uploaded consciousness of its creator. What MeatHab and its small population of squatters failed to anticipate, however, is that such a curiosity would attract the darker elements of transhuman society as well, and now, a band of spurned predator exhumans have chosen to make the Living Meat their quarry. What are these engineered monstrosities planning, and what does it have to do with the disappearance that the team of Sentinels are investigating? Find out, on this week’s game of Eclipse Phase!

  • meat hab respects boundaries! while its carcass drifts in space, its mind is receiving full dumps of future tumblr and decoding its lessons on how to be a good person.

  • Mean old X-humans have to go and ruin it for everybody.
    Is there a new EP book out revolving around X-humans? They seem to be a popular enemy these days, and a lot more dangerous then when I first heard of them in RPPR’s Know Evil campaign.

    • Yeah, Know Evil came out pre-Rimward. There’s a bunch of material in there about exhumans, seeing as how they’re a lot more common in the Outer System, and more dangerous, too. There’s plenty of open space past the main belt for people to isolate themselves and attempt to hack their own bodies into posthuman monstrosities. I guess it also depends on how the clade of exhumans in question views the rest of transhumanity. The group from Caleb’s game seemed to be more the disdainful-but-cooperative types, as opposed to the apex-predators-who’ll-hunt-you-for-sport types.

  • Ah, I gotcha. That’s cool that there are different exhuman subgroups, with varying ideologies and levels of aggression. I think it makes the EP universe feel more realistic that way.
