If you like science fiction settings, I can't imagine a better book to read--this is a smorgasbord of fascinating and original ideas. Everything from alien life to environments to grander existential ideas of the extrasolar universe is covered and illustrated with fiction, dialogues, and story hook ideas.
Love it! Jan 14, Randy Mcdonald rated it it was amazing Shelves: science-fiction , rpg. Gatecrashing is the fantastic Eclipse Phase supplement for extrasolar adventures. In this particular setting, transhumanity gained access to the stars via five mysterious gates scattered around the solar system, mechanisms that somehow--the best guesses involve stable wormholes--create instantaneous connections to other gates scattered across the Milky Way Galaxy.
It's widely believed that these gates were manufactured by the TITANs, the superintelligent AIs that wrecked the Earth and fled for p Gatecrashing is the fantastic Eclipse Phase supplement for extrasolar adventures. It's widely believed that these gates were manufactured by the TITANs, the superintelligent AIs that wrecked the Earth and fled for points unknown, but even the suspicion that the TITANs might be monitoring the network doesn't prevent their use.
The obvious survival benefits of rapidly spreading transhumanity beyond a single planetary system into the wider galaxy aside, it's only through the study of other worlds and other civilizations that transhumanity can learn the truth about what's really going on.
Where is everybody, for starters? This is an excellent hard SF book. Here is an ancient Dyson sphere, a vast artifact with a surface area of millions of Earths; there, a promising colony world with an extinct native sophont species set to be revived; through this gate, a world with a mysteriously integrated ecology centered around a species of tree; through that gate, a planet of hallucinogenic plant life settled by hedonists and run by, among others, Lady Gaga.
Trust me, this works in its context. Sep 07, Brian rated it it was amazing Shelves: 5-stars , science-fiction , rpg , post-apocalyptic. First off, I know basically nothing about Eclipse Phase: The Roleplaying Game of Transhuman Conspiracy and Horror other than that it's a transhumanist game where the Perfect Robot Future went decidedly wrong and you can play a space whale that swims in the corona of the sun. Sold, right? Anyway, a lot of the book is about the logistics of traveling through the Stargate-analogues the Pandora Gates , but the really neat part is in the description of the worlds on the other side.
Each is relatively First off, I know basically nothing about Eclipse Phase: The Roleplaying Game of Transhuman Conspiracy and Horror other than that it's a transhumanist game where the Perfect Robot Future went decidedly wrong and you can play a space whale that swims in the corona of the sun. Each is relatively short, but still packed with ideas that can be used any number of places.
My favorite is probably the world covered in blue trees that might be a single organism that naturally evolved, might be an alien terraforming device, might be an alien machine, or might be something else altogether, but the dyson sphere, the world with the connections to alien ChatRoulette, and the world outside the galaxy were really neat too.
It's definitely worth reading for ideas, even if you don't know anything about the game. Mar 09, Sean Richmond rated it really liked it. Yeah, it's an RPG source book, but a damned well written one with an incredibly captivating universe that they spared no detail on.
I don't think I'll ever play this game, but the books are worth the fiction in them alone. Apr 19, Christian rated it it was amazing Shelves: gaming , paper. Astonishing book with lots of story hooks. GMs should take note of this really well done book to add spice and direction for any game. May 07, Colby rated it it was amazing Shelves: rpg.

Question about "Gatecrashing"
Jump to navigation. Might be waaaayyyy to early to ask, but thought I would. As "Gatecrashing" covers extrasolar exploration is there any plans for a star system-generation ruleset to add to EP? Also any chance on meeting the Factor's patrons? I still have a copy on my desk. I don't know if we're going to put out anything about star system design. The best information you can get on this comes from real life astronomy.
Eclipse Phase Gatecrashing
Jump to navigation. Ok, having briefly read the Gatecrashing book, I have some setting questions that I guess will be inevitable. First question-something I felt was missing from description of described exoplanets:population numbers. I understand that most are science stations or human population is absent but I would like to know population numbers for places like: -Portal and the Isra settlement-it is described as one of the largest transhuman settlements outside of the solar system:so how big is it?
