Now that the Sentinels have wrapped up their personal business, it’s time to face the possible ex-threat that is rapidly approaching the solar system. Charles Maldonado’s transmission at the end of The Promethean Chronicles was meant to summon the errant TITANs home, and now it looks like something may have answered. A massive unidentified object on course to enter the system has been sending transmissions demanding to speak to Maldonado, but is it a rogue seed AI coming back to complete transhumanity’s destruction, an extraterrestrial race trying to make contact, or something else entirely? With Maldonado’s reconstructed ego in tow, the Stray Thoughts team farcasts into the black to intercept the object and learn the truth. Will this ragtag group of misfits have to manage a first contact scenario, or will they have their minds devoured by an unknowable evil from the stars? Find out, in Part I of the two-part series finale of Stray Thoughts!

We’re back with more Stray Thoughts! Before they transmit themselves to the terrifying alien vessel hurtling toward the solar system, the former Sentinels of the Stray Thoughts team decide to stop off at 3lizab3thtown, a purely virtual colony established as a safe haven by and for 3lizab3th’s forks. At first, all seems to be well; the other 3lizab3ths are eager to meet our instance’s friends and learn about her adventures. However, it soon becomes clear that years of persecution have made the AIs inhabiting 3lizab3thtown deeply mistrustful of organic transhuman life, and that one of their number has taken steps to eliminate the problem once and for all. With time running out, the team will have to escape from a partitioned hellscape where dissenting 3lizab3ths have been imprisoned and stop the colony’s new leader before she eradicates transhuman civilization at a stroke. Join us for an action-packed Eclipse Phase family reunion, this week on Rag-NERD-rok!

We’re back with the epic conclusion to Gotterdamien! Stray Thoughts team member Damien Carmello is set to face off against his fork, Damien Gorello, in a no-holds-barred deathmatch for control of Legba. In order to further stack the odds in C’s favor, Stardust issues her own challenge, making the fight a three-way battle. The only snag about this arrangement is that, by the rules of the combat, only one person can walk out of the ring alive. With the rest of the team serving as support, Damien and Stardust enter the arena, but can they defeat G’s combat-maximized neo-porcine? And even if they do, which one of them will claim final ownership of the slaver’s sanctuary? Find out, this week on Stray Thoughts!

This week, The Stray Thoughts team heads to the most vile, dangerous place in the solar system, Legba! The former headquarters of the Nine Lives Cartel is still every bit as lawless and treacherous, but now one of Damien’s forks has taken control. Damien Gorello rules the asteroid with poison-tipped tusks in a tricked-out neo-porcine morph, but he has given up his brothers’ dream of fomenting a slave rebellion and instead simply revels in his power. Moreover, he has killed the surviving handful of Damiens and now holds most of their stacks on his person at all times. With the assistance of Yarmello, another fork who avoided the purge by playing toady, Damien Carmello and the rest of the team issue a public challenge for control of the station. In order to rescue his forks, Damien will have to defeat one of them in gladiatorial combat. Can his friends help him ensure victory?
