The conclusion to the new Eclipse Phase module, “Million Year Echo!” The team of Firewall Sentinels aboard the drifting airship is starting to splinter as their agendas come into conflict. When they discover what is potentially an extraterrestrial AI inhabiting several bots aboard the derelict ship, they are faced with three choices: destroy it, ensuring that any potential threat is contained, turn it over to Firewall for study, or keep it for themselves, a prospect that several Sentinels find disturbingly attractive. When the ship crashes in the Martian desert, deep in the TQZ, the only loyal Firewall agent will have to sort out her remaining teammates. Can she suss out what their real motivations are, and will that be enough to prevent an ex-threat outbreak? Listen to find out!

  • that was fun. I think Ed’s right that it might’ve worked a little better as a Fiasco. worked fine as is, though. flesh partyyy! thought maybe there were a couple times when players were a little too worried about their characters succeeding at something where in a Fiasco they’d probably just have said ‘okay, I’m fucked over,’ as with the bit about the QE transmitter (damn space magic).

    I also think Ed’s right that matched socks are more trouble than they’re worth.

    when will the next eclipse phase Campaign be starting up, and also when will the Monsters and other Childish Things – The Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor return from hiatus?

    • We’ve got another Eclipse Phase scenario in the pipeline, but I’m not sure when we’ll get to finish it up. Things are a bit weird for our group at the moment. I got married in January, Ed’s getting married in April, and James moved away, so getting the whole gang together has been rough for the past month or two. When things calm down, we should be able to wrap that up and get it posted. However, I’m afraid we don’t have any concrete plans at this point to run another long-term EP campaign, although Alex has mentioned a short sequel to The Promethean Chronicles and Ed had expressed interest in starting up a Gatecrashing campaign after The Titor House wraps.

      We’ll probably have more MaoCT for you in the next couple of weeks. Chris is finishing up his current round of treatment and he says he’ll be available for games soon. So look for that in the near future!
