>Eclipse Phase: Transhuman includes two super-fast ways of genning effective, fleshed out characters.This. Changes. EVERYTHING. That agonizing character creation point buy - the worst example of point buy I could imagine in an otherwise fantastic game - is now a thing of the past and you can get a Sentinel up and Firewalling in like twenty goddamn minutes. I have the PDF open right here. You need to see how fucking easy this shit is. Give me rolls and we'll make some fucking characters. Let's start with the basics.1. d10 for starting attributes.2. D100 for starting language.3. Youth. 1d10 to determine how your youth was spent, then 1d100 for where you were born4. 1d10 for your basic childhood package.From there it's stuff like your adulthood, pre and post-Fall life etc. Get rolling!
Rolled 6Just one roll for starting attributes? Sure you got that right? Oh well, rollan.
>>27344127You are a motherfucking Survivor. COG 10, COO 15, INT 15, REF 15, SAV 10, SOM 20, WIL 20.
Rolled 15>>27344144What does these stats mean? INT and WIL I get, but not stuff like SOM, COG or REF.Rolling language.
>>27344163COG - Cognition. Intelligence.COO - Co-ordination. Basically dexterity etc.INT - Intuition.REF - Reflexes.SAV - Savvy. Basically charisma.SOM - Somatics. How good you are with your body - STR/CON basically.WIL - Willpower.Your native language is Dutch.
Rolled 4>>27344186The ugliest known language in human history. Oh well.What's the difference between Intuition and Cognition, by the way? It doesn't seem like the usual "booksmarts and education vs actual ability to think creatively" distinction games like Shadowrun and DnD has.
Rolled 33Second youth roll.
>>27344250You had a Wholesome Youth. Roll a d100 to determine where you were born etc.Cognition and Intuition are kind of like INT and WIS in D&D - book-learning vs being able to pick up on subtle clues around you.
>>27344262Oh shit, you were born on Earth. You're probably not just born to Dutch parents. You might actually have been born in fucking Holland. d10 to see if your parents were hyper-elite, communists or what-have-you. This determines the first skills you'll get.
>>27344267Ah, so it was like that after all. I already rolled the d100, by the way: >>27344262
Rolled 9>>27344278So does this mean we have to smoke weed and grow tulips now?
Well, only until the TITANs eat all the tulips.
>>27344298Entirely possible, because you are a Street Rat! You were raised by, or spent your youth in, street gangs, crime cartels or the like, in the roughest parts of Rotterdam or whatever. You get +1 Moxie and the following skills: Clubs 30, Infiltration 15, Interest (choose one) 20, Language (any) 40, Networking: Criminals 30, Pilot Groundcraft 30, Profession (any) 30, Unarmed Combat 40.So, that's your youth. You spent all of it on Earth, being a street punk in the mean streets of Holland. The next steps go like this:- Background event: 1d100 to determine something that shook shit up in your life.-1d100 to determine your character's age. This might require you to roll again if you're very old or lose out on the Adult Path if you're very young.-Adult Path: You are currently on the Criminal path. You can roll 1d10 to stay on that path, specialize or randomly select a new path.
Rolled 4>>27344361Wait, we're Street Rat AND had a Wholesome Youth at the same time? How does that work? Were we a little hobo that behaved well despite his/her crappy environment?
>>27344396Basically for that you're rolling to see if you stayed in one place doing one thing the whole time or were moving around and constantly changing. I agree the name is stupid, but Wholesome Youth means you put down roots in one place, with one community.It's just that the community you did that with your drug dealers or something. I don't know those guys, they could be really nice. I find it hard to imagine a nasty Dutchman for some reason. It just doesn't work.
Rolled 40>>27344361Rolling for possible childhood trauma.
>>27344426You suffer from a great deal of isolation and social exclusion during your childhood and don't socialize well. Lose 5 SAV.
Rolled 67>>27344437Aww, poor guy. Rollan age.
Oh dammit are we going to end up Sulky Loner Guy >(
>>27344447You are in your 40's - this means that you were around 30 when the Fall happens. Roll 1d10 for your adult path.
>>27344451*Dutch* Sulky Loner Guy. Which is even worse.
>>27344477Apparently you decided the criminal life isn't for you! That makes sense given the last result - you don't like any of these assholes! Roll another d10 to see what you do instead of crimes.
Did they release Singularity by any chance? (the chargen software that was a KS stretch goal)
Rolled 9>>27344497Guy who rolled every single dice in this thread here. Unfortunately I have to leave now since my Dark Heresy group are coming over, so someone else will have to take over the rollan.
>>27344509Oh shit! You go "fuck crime - I'm going to SPACE!" Roll a d10 to determine your Spacer specialty.
Rolled 5Now we're talking! Look on the bright side, Roller Guy, you got us to space!
>>27344526Yar-har! You're a fucking PIRATE!+1 Moxie, Infilitration +15, Interest (Choose One) 30, Pilot: Spacecraft 40. So, that's what your job was Pre-Fall. Here's the next things to roll.-1d100 for a dramatic life event in your adulthood.-1d100 for THE FALL.
Rolled 16>>27344553Let's see what dramatic mid-life crisis hit us.
>>27344553What's THE FALL, anyway?
>>27344576Oh snap! Get another Moxie and roll 1d100 again as a Story Event happens!
Pilot: Spacecraft feels like such a booby prize in a setting that stresses "you let the AI fly the spacecraft because you're not stone cold retarded". Oh well, doesn't matter, got Moxie.
>>27344590Basically when Skynet happens. 10 years before the game starts, a bunch of AIs called the TITANS basically decided "hey baby, let's kill all humans!" and wiped out 90% of humanity before vanishing for unknown reasons. Earth is completely uninhabitable now.
>>27344250nigga have you heard finnish? dutch is bad, i agree, even tho its ver close to my language but finnish, dat shits insane bro
>>27344605To be fair, they only killed MOST humans. A fairly significant percentage just got their heads cut off, their personalities stripped out of their brains and then swallowed into the alien horror of a mad AI's data-tummy.
Rolled 27>>27344594>Story EventAw shit!
>>27344630You enter a "convenience-based, contract-defined relationship". Basically, you've got a mail-order girlfriend or a long-term relationship with a lady of negotiable affection.Now then. THE FALL. d100. HOW DO YOU DO AT THE APOCALYPSE, CAPTAIN DUTCH WHOREFUCKER?
>>27344614I kinda like Finnish. Sure, it sounds like you're constantly drunk and have no teeth, but even that's better than Dutch, which makes you sound like a severely brain-damaged German with throat cancer. At least Finnish is kinda melodic in a way.Good swearing language, too.
Your beta-fork became sick with digital cholera.
Rolled 42>>27344644I bet we just hid somewhere.
Rolled 7>>27344644>CAPTAIN DUTCH WHOREFUCKERSHE IS NOT A WHORE, SHE IS MAI WAIFU OF NEGOTIABLE RATES!
Sat in our space-apartment decorated by very sleek but impersonal space furniture and blazed powerful but flavorless space nugs.
>>27344658>>27344663>7 or 427 is "You manage to stay safe and get 1 Moxie and another STORY EVENT"42 is "You earn safety by signing up to indentured service. You can trade your shitty Flat body for a randomly-determined (d100) Synthmorph and get a technical skill at 20"What will it be? Extra Moxie or a not-shit body?
>>27344690Moxy and story!
>>27344690STORY EVEEEENT. Let's make this guy's life even crappier.
>>27344690The synthmorph is alluring but then we couldn't blaze our astro-nug. :(
>>27344693>>27344704Gimme another d100!
Rolled 35>>27344710Fire it up!
Shit son, this is like Traveller but in a setting I understand. This is great.
In a post scarcity society, most pirates aren't pirates because they need to be. They are pirates because they WANT to be. We have made a lifestyle choice to become space assholes! Beats working for a living.
>>27344744See, told you it was a good idea to take the event.
>>27344750oops sorry I was not dictating our result just making predictions of our future. Sorry to confuse!
>>27344716>>27344717>2. You hit rock bottom. There's nowhere to go but up.Seems fitting for THE APOCALYPSE. Maybe seeing this shit prompts you to turn your life around and stop being a weed-smoking whoremonger space pirate? Nah.OR>35. You are reunited with a friend/relative/lover you thought was lost during the Fall.Given that this is meant to be taking place DURING the Fall, I'll change this to be you can take one person with you during the Fall. Possibly your "girlfriend". Now, for your post-Fall paths.-1d10 determines your attitude to your jobs (how many skill points you get from various packages)-The next d10 determines if you stay on your current path (Criminal: Pirate) or switch gears
>>27344768Aw, and here I got my hopes up for nothing...
Rolled 9>>27344776I'll take the girlfriend
>>27344776Maybe our girlfriend survived as an upload, living in a ghostrider module and standing in for our muse as we scrounge for enough resources to get her sleeved properly? Moderately unsettling story issues there...
>>27344776I'll take the she's-not-a-prostitute-if-she-gives-me-freebies-sometimes, please.
>>27344789You have won the heart of your contractually-obligated lover by saving her from the destruction of Earth. Perhaps this will encourage her to follow a relationship with you without the need for financial incentive? You Get The Job Done. This gives you a really awesome Focus Package (you're great at what you do) but a quite small Faction Package (you're not hugely concerned with general faction stuff). 1d10 to see if you keep to your current path and get awesome at it, or go be awesome at something else.
Rolled 3>>27344810Here we go!
Rolled 1>>27344825Crap, wrong die. Trying again.
>>27344810Glad to see our streak of being anti-social is holding up!
A freelancing space traveler with a prostitute girlfriend. So we're Dutch Captain Reynolds?
>>27344826>>27344830You go be an awesome space pirate with your former whore in tow.+1 Moxie+5 COG, +50 g-repYou gain the following skills:Art (choose one) 30, Fray + 20, Gunnery 30, Infiltration +30, Interest (choose one) 40, Intimidation +20, Language (choose one) 30, Kinetic Weapons 30, Networking Criminals +30, Perception 20, Pilot: Spacecraft +50, Profession: Piracy 50, Scrounging 30, Unarmed Combat 20. Now, a d10 for the Faction (the sub-group of criminal you general fraternize with)
Rolled 2>>27344849Damn we good pirate
>>27344849What kinds of art do we get to choose from? Is it literally that we can make pretty things, or is it yet another confusing name for something that turns out to be something completely different?
>>27344849Interests (Avante Garde Porno XP). Let's be honest with ourselves, we're scummy space pirates, not opera season ticket holders.
>>27344865Art is art. It can be stuff like painting, writing, sculpture, with all the potential for sci-fi stuff you can slap on to it. Maybe you make artsy virtual reality simulations, or glitterbomb AR shit. Interests is like hobbies or stuff you just find enjoyable - I've seen profiles with stuff like "Interest: Martian beer" or "Interest: Esoteric Muslim Traditions.">>27344856>>27344862You are either a Belter (based in the Asteroid Belt) or an Orbital (living around Earth Orbit)
>>27344849Interests (Cheesy old pre-Fall movies). IN A NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE, NEXT SUNDAY A.D.
>>27344884>>27344108This is pretty damn awesome, OP. It's a shame that my group's chars are built already, but this is pretty neat.
Being an Orbital keeps us close to a lot of weird TITAN fuckery and dope semi-legitimate salvage. Plus, Belters are WEIRD.
>>27344877are those pokeballs?
>>27344614As a Finn, I can say that the language is only good for cussing.Other than that, I'll take French, Dutch, Japanese, English, hell, even Swedish over it.
>>27344884Art: Knitting. It will keep us busy on long trips, and make the coldness of space somewhat more bearable. Also it lets us make cool scarves.
Are we going to own a ship called the Spacefaring Dutchman?
>>27344907Plus, people in the post-scarcity age are totally gaga for hand-made things. And even in the future, all non-synths still want socks!
>>27344907>implying scarves are actually coolOh wait, we're Eurotrash aren't we? Yeah no we probably already have like a billion vintage-ass scarves and vintage ass-scarves.
>>27344914Scarves aren't cool, but people who knit think they are. Also stoners love knitted stuff.
>>27344914Bitch, don't hate on us just because you amerifats have no sense of style.
>>27344895Orbital it is! You spend you days in Earth orbit, salvaging the scraps of the apocalyptic war and daily looking down at the burnt wreckage of Mother Holland.You gain Free Fall 30, Language (any) 30 and Pilot (any) 30. Remember that skills can't go over 80 so when this stuff gets added together you might want to choose some different piloting etc skills - right now you're super-awesome at spaceships. Now, time for another Life Event. d100!
>>27344937Oh shit! You get hired by a wealthy douchebag to go through a Pandora Gate! Roll another d100 for the Gatecrashing table.
I'm now imagining a tired-looking 40-something space pirate wearing a loud, knitted scarf and matching mittens. It's awesome.
Rolled 40>>27344946Oh boy-o!
>>27344941>>27344946Oh, or you spend some time as the mediator between two warring factions and gain 20 to the Protocol skill but FUCK THAT PANDORA GATE BITCHES LETS FIND SOME EXOPLANETS
Rolled 91>>27344946>>27344956Pandora Gate!
>>27344949Oh yeah, we're in a Flat and haven't resleeved! We're old as fuck by transhuman standards.
How do we get yarn in space, though? Are there replicators or something, or do we have to track down a yarn shop to restock?
Rolled 19>>27344966That is not an adventure!THIS IS ADVENTURE!
>>27344949Get a drawfag in here, ASAP!
>>27344955>>27344966>40 or 91>40: You spend quite some time exploring. You can choose to swap the gains of the Orbital package for the equivalent level in Explorer.OR>91: Your mission is sabotaged by an unknown party and you never back it back from the gate. Roll randomly for a new morph! (d100 to determine general category, then another d100 for specific model)
Rolled 88>>27345001The latter. If given a choice, we always take the one that fucks us over the most.
Rolled 89>>27345001>>40: You spend quite some time exploring. You can choose to swap the gains of the Orbital package for the equivalent level in Explorer.Because>>91: Your mission is sabotaged by an unknown party and you never back it back from the gate. Roll randomly for a new morph! (d100 to determine general category, then another d100 for specific model)Means our wife's dead.... Actually that's why let's do that.>category
>>27345012It doesn't mean the waifu died - just that you did. Did you really risk your precious not-whore by taking her to an exo-planet?89: You are a synthmorph! You either couldn't afford or couldn't legitimately arrange resleeving into meat so metal will have to do! Roll again for precise model.
Rolled 45>>27345010Rolled category here, now for model.
Rolled 10>>27345031>THE FLESH IS WEAK
>>27345023Shit son, you're an Arachnoid! Arachnoid robotic shells are 1-meter in length, segmented into two parts, with a smaller head, like a spider or termite. They feature four pairs of 1.5-meter-long retractable arms/legs, capable of rotating around the axis of the body, with built-in pneumatic systems for propelling the bot with small leaps. The manipulator claws on each arm/leg can be switched out with extendable mini-wheels for high-speed skating movement. A smaller pair of manipulator arms near the head allows for closer handling and tool use. In zero-G environments, arachnoids can retract their arms/legs and maneuver with vectored air thrusters.Enhancements: Access Jacks, Basic Mesh Inserts, Cortical Stack, Cyberbrain, Enhanced Vision, Extra Limbs (10 Arms/Legs), Lidar, Mnemonic Augmentation, Pneumatic Limbs, RadarMobility System: Walker (4/24), Thrust Vector (8/40), Wheeled (8/40)Aptitude Maximum: 30Durability: 40Wound Threshold: 8Advantages: +5 COO, +10 SOM, Armor 8/8
Rolled 86>>27345012We left our not-whore behind, don't worry.Also FUCK YES, WE'RE A FULL CYBORG SPACE PIRATE NOW.Rolling for model.
>>27345032>Flexbot>>27345039>>27345045>CaseArachnoid really is the best option here.
>>27345064>GrieferBased on the case synthmorph design, griefers are used by vandals, terrorists, and dedicated trolls to harass enemies and antagonize the masses. Griefers have embedded sound and holographic display systems so they can easily harass an individual or an entire crowd. They are also typically equipped with numerous hacking tools and software aids, though they do not come with these by default. Most impor- tantly, they are built without cortical stacks, so if they are destroyed, the ego cannot be interrogated through psychosurgery. Griefers are illegal in many habitats, especially in the Planetary Consortium, but DRM-free blueprints are easy to find in many darknets, thus making them a persistent annoyance in some systems. A few habitats have passed laws mandating that killing a griefer is not considered murder, assault, or even destruction of property. Enhancements: Access Jacks, Basic Mesh Inserts, Cyberbrain, Holographic Projector, Loudspeakers, Mnemonic Augmentation, Puppet Sock Mobility System:Walker (4/16) Aptitude Maximum: 20 Durability: 20 Wound Threshold: 4 Advantages: Armor (4/4) Disadvantages: –5 to two aptitudes of the player’s choice, Lemon trait, No Cortical Stack trait, Social Stigma (Griefer) trait
>>27345051Well, time to get some new knitting patterns so we can make a hat that fits our freakish spider head.Although I guess this means no more weed for our Dutch space pirate.
>>27345081I'm sure there's an app for that
>>27345073We're gonna make SO MANY SOCKS.>>27345079Guy who rolled that thing here, I really want to go with the spider instead.
Now, the question is if you are a Firewall agent.If yes, roll a d100 to determine how you were recruited.If now, we can skip that and go straight to your gear.
>>27345097What is a Firewall agent?
>>27345051A certain prostitute's sex-life just got a LOT weirder.
>>27345081>Although I guess this means no more weed for our Dutch space pirate.I wouldn't bet on it...
>>27345103Basically super-spies in space. The default campaign in Eclipse Phase is "You work for Firewall. Your job is to stop the apocalypse from happening again." The game assumes you're part of Firewall, but it's not compulsory.
Rolled 2>>27345097If 1, yes, if 2, no.
>>27345123Fuck heroism, get spider bodies.Also, did we settle on our Interest? Suggestions were porn and cheesy old movies.
Rolled 2>>27345123Best of 3?
>>27345123>>27345133Firewall? The fuck is that? Some kind of fruit? Anyway, time for PHAT LEWT.Roll 1d10 to determine your general wealth. 1 is flat broke, 10 is basically Srooge McDuck.
Rolled 8>>27345141Looks like we're going to be poor as fuck, then.
Rolled 3>>27345141But we can't be Scrooge.He's too awesome.
>>27345153You're actually decently well off. You start with 20,000 + (1d10x1000) credits. I'll also say you start with a medium freighter.You can then use that cash to buy some Gear packs. I guess for a pirate the Scavenger and Self Defense packs make the most sense, though you did go through a Gate so maybe Gatecrasher?
>>27345153> Poor as fuck>rolls 8More like we're going to be fucking rumpelstiltskin with all the gold weaving we got.
>>27345169What does the Gatecrasher pack entail?
>>27345169Anyway, at this point you add up your skills and stats, slap a name of that guy and you're basically done. You have a depressing as fuck Dutchman whose life took a turn for the AWESOME in recent months despite the obvious set back of his death and has to deal with the fact he can no long enjoy weed, bang his whorewife or wear his handknit space cardigans on his piracy runs. THIS IS WHY I LOVE ECLIPSE PHASE.
>>27344298Diamond Tulips in the shadow of the collossus of humanity's folly.what is dutch for "War, war never changes."?
>>27345169Which morph type did we end up with? the archanoid or the griefer?
>>27345195Arachnoid. As funny as the spam-blaring lulzbot is, the "suddenly I am a spider" is even better.>>27345184Kind of specialist gear for mapping out new places, so it might not be the best idea actually if you want to go straight-pirate. Like I said earlier, by this point you're basically just adding up some numbers, getting your gear and he's done and ready for play.
>>27345191More importantly - what is the dutch for "robot spider"?
And so begin the adventures of Captain Silkbeard, space pirate and terror of earth orbit! His ship, the Dank Nug, is home to him and his lovely but conjugally confused companion, who has recently had to devote serious time and thought as to what to do with all these mittens.
Rolled 3Stop making me want to play a game that I'll never manage to play.
Shall we roll again? Make another character?
>>27345264I'd like that
>>27345283Back to the top then. d10 for starting attributes and a d100 for native language.
Rolled 31>>27345293Language Ho!
>>27345264>Eclipse Phase: TranshumanGot to admit, having gone through CC before, this is a far more enjoyable way to do it as it drops alot of the needless fiddling.
>>27345293Lads were faster than I, but let's go with >>27345301 ?
>>27345298>>27345301You are a Thrill Seeker!COG 10 COO 20 INT 15 REF 20 SAV 15 SOM 15 WIL 10Oh dear god you're French
>>27345064>We left our not-whore behind, don't worry.That's a shame. If she had died, we could adopt the pirate name Black Widower and really own up to the spider theme.
>>27345328OH MY GOD THAT'S EVEN BETTER
>>27345327>>27345341We were able to redeem the Dutchman! We can do this! Your youth! d10! Then another d100!
Rolled 5>>27345355Youth roll?
Rolled 16>>27345327>FrenchI bet the dice gods did this.
>>27345361That's another wholesome youth, meaning you had roots in a particular community. Roll a d100 to determine what that is.
Rolled 6>>27345371Another earthborn, I think
>>27345371Earthborn again - you're a Frenchie through and through. But now a d10. Are you a filthy bourgeois elite or a glorious child of egalite, fraternite etc?
>>27345385Yes, and this time you grew up always hovering around the poverty line. You take the Re-Instatiated: Civilian Casualty pack. This gives you:+1 Moxie(Choose Any Non-Psi Skill) 50, Academics: (Choose One) 20, Interest: (Choose One) 30, Interfacing 45, Networking: (Choose One) 40, Pilot: Groundcraft 30, Profession: (Choose One)40, Research 30Roll a d10 to determine your morph: 1-4 is Splicer, 5-10 is a Flat.
>>27345403Argue amongst yourselves for Morphs and skills. I'm going to run out and grab some food, then back to this.
Rolled 10>>27345403I say we take ground craft car or whatever and profession streetracer/mechanic and fill the rest from that point
Rolled 7>>27345445>french street racerI can dig it.
Rolled 7>>27345463>>27345445Our name must be Jimmy D and car number 53.
>>27345505>Herbie the mother fucking Love Bug
Okay, so you're a street racing Flat! By the way, I forgot to mention but your background includes this rather sucky caveat - because you were a poor fucker, no-one much cared to defend your part of the city when the TITANS came so you died in the Fall but were resleeved fairly quickly and probably don't remember dying. Give me a d100 for your Life Event during your youth.
Rolled 74>>27345616'Ere we go
>>27345505What if "Jimmy The D"?
>>27345629You cheat your way through school and don't pay attention. -10 to one skill.
>>27345655>You cheat your way through school and don't pay attention. -10 to one skill.We tried to cheat the system, but in the end we only cheated ourselves.
>>27345663You are in your 30's. Now to determine what you were doing in your adulthood prior to the Fall. Give me a d10, then another d10
>>27345214>War, war never changesIs 'Oorlog, oorlog verandert nooit.'>>27345191>Robot spiderIs 'robot spin'
>>27345684Ooh, you're a specialist! Give me a d100!
>>27345711Just make him a goddamn taxi driver already.
>>27345720You're an athlete! Skills: Climbing 30, Freerunning 40, Swimming 30Freerunning is Parkour, which fits wit you being a Frenchman. Now for a Pre-Fall Life Event. d100!
>>27345583Thanks for another animu
>>27345763A period of poverty leaves you in need of some scrounging skills. Turns out being a thrill driving jackass and parkour runner doesn't pay that well I guess. + 10 Scrouging!NOW THE FALL, FRENCHIE. D100!
>>27345792During the Fall, you die but I guess you do something pretty heroic that shows you value human lives over material wealth and so on. The footage of your heroic actions and accounts from the people you save gives you +10 @-rep as the autonomists think you're a cool guy. Now for factions. Give me a d10 to figure out how you're oriented between your faction and your focus.
>>27345792>100dis gun b gud
Rolled 4>>27345811Let's do this!
>>27345834You strike a steady balance between your personal efforts and the demands of your faction. (3 PP each) Now to determine what faction you've joined. d10.
Rolled 5>>27345853Those guys who support information transparency ho!
>>27345858You're an Enclaver! Now you need a focus. Another d10.

>>27345939Oh, I like this concept.I don't know anything about the system though, if it's called transhumanist something I guess it's all about not being a human anymore..right?Because here something different then a ro-butt might have been cool.
>>27345951You adhere to a philosophy called The Precautionary Principle, arguing that the only technology we adopt should be the stuff proven to be safe. We got burned once before by the TITANS. Maybe you use your journalistic position to chase down tons of scientists to make sure they're not doing crazy shit that could turn into another near-extinction event from humanity. +1 Moxie +50 Rep (Your Choice) Academics: (Choose One) 50, Academics: (Choose One) 40, Hardware: (Choose One) 20, Infosec 20, Interfacing 30, Investigation 40, Networking: (Choose One) 30, Research 50
So it's life path style character gen? That sounds ducking fantastic.
d100 for your Post-Fall Life Event!
>>27346006Yeah, the most recent release swaps out the previous point buy system for two alternatives - one is buying "skill packs" and the other is a life path roll-and-choose thing.
Rolled 10Can you throw a download link?
Rolled 41>>27346017Rollan, since no-one else is doing it. Maybe all you Americans have gone to work/school/uni for the day?
>>27346291You took up arms in a regional conflict, giving you +10 to a combat skill of your choice. Maybe you're a war journalist? Anyway, the last event in your life to consider is Firewall and how you got recruited. That's one last d100.
Rolled 76>>27346312Oh boy
>>27346342You were investigating an asteroid and crossed paths with Firewall when it turned out you were investigating the same cache. They even let you keep some of what you found! You gain 1d10x5000 credits.
>>27346370Huzzah! So all that's really left is determining starting cash and gear, but that's kind of boring so I won't make you guys do that. So we have a free-running athletic Frenchie journalist... who's still in his Flat morph as far as I can tell. Maybe you should use that cash you found to upgrade to something like a Sylph, but that's for another time. I like how his aptitudes and skills mean it would actually make more sense for him to be a kind of spy than a proper journalist.

>>27347567One of your parents was bilingual and raised you bilingually. You get +20 to another Language skill. A d100 for your age is next.
>>27347624>92We old man.
>>27347624You are in your 80's but given your vast wealth and access to high quality biomorphs, you probably still look like you're a hip 20-something. You also just rolled low enough to avoid the potential risks of being too old (if you're 90+ years old, you roll to see whether or not your senses degrade etc)Next is your Adult Pre-Fall path. What did you do as a young man? 1d10?
Rolled 9>>27347652But if we were too old, couldn't we resleeve?
>>27347667(Yes, but prolonged life can have a detrimental effect on the Ego as well as the morph. It just takes longer to kick in which is why you only start rolling at 90+ years old, not 60 etc)You changed your path in life fairly early on - perhaps a life of idle luxury was boring to someone of your talents and you decided to try your hand at something else. Maybe you wanted to seek your own fortune, or maybe you were just pissed off at the fact you were unlikely to inherit anything now Mom and Dad are basically immortal. Roll a d10 to see what you do instead of being a trust fund kid, basically.
>>27347710You went to work as a Techie - perhaps you decided a board room wasn't for you and that you'd rather go down and work with the actual machines instead. Another d10 for a Techie specialization.
>>27347714>Scientist>>27347716>Civilian>>27347710>TechieYour choice as to which really, but the point remains - d10 for specialization in that group.
Rolled 2>>27347741Techie or scientist
>>27347745>>27347748>>27347749I'll take the 4 and the two votes for Science. You become an Investigator, combining old-school detective work and modern forensic data skills. Perhaps instead of working as an executive, you got into investigating insurance fraud. You gain the following skills:Investigation 40, Profession: Forensics 30, Research 30Now a d100 for a major Pre-Fall Life Event that had an impact on you.
>>27347778We Korean future spess Batman?
>>27347799>Uh oh. Gain 1 Moxie and roll another d100 for a STORY EVENT.

Rolled 11>>27347864TIME FOR DOOM
>>27347871The "hard times" mentioned earlier involved being on Earth just as the TITANS started their shit. In true Korean Batman fashion, you stay to the end fighting the TITAN menace with whatever came to hand. This means you died, probably gruesomely, but managed to get resleeved.+1 Moxie and a randomly determined body. Shame, that Exalt was nice. d100 to determine its category.
>>27347921Synthmorph! Another d100 for the model.
>>27347941You sleeve into a Galatea - which is kind of like being a walking iPhone, I guess. It's as close to a status symbol as you can get while still not being made of meat. Maybe the biomorphs were too hard to come by after the Fall.A group of Lunar morph designers created this high-end synthmorph in an attempt to increase the social acceptance of synthmorphs by showcasing how attractive and versatile they can be. This elegant morph looks expensive and is designed to allow the user to master any social situation. A few media icons and socialites have already found that this morph’s mixture of utility and novelty value has helped enhance their fame and reputation.Enhancements: Access Jacks, Basic Mesh Inserts, Chameleon Skin, Cortical Stack, Cyberbrain, Enhanced Hearing, Mnemonic Augmentation Aptitude Maximum: 30 Durability: 40 Wound Threshold: 8 Now for your post-Fall adult like. Give me a d10 to see how you do between your Focus and your Faction.
>>27347985You strike an even balance between your personal Focus and your Faction (3pp packages for each)Now another d10 to see if you stick as a Scientist or go do something else.
Rolled 3>>27347999Whoo! Science!
>>27348007You do indeed stick with Science. But you might not still be an Investigator, so give me another d10.
>>27348032Fuck, you're actually a journalist again. Better be careful of scarves! You gain the following:+50 Rep (Your Choice) Infosec 40, Investigation 50, Kinesics 30, Kinetic Weapons 20, Perception 25, Profession: Forensics 50, Profession: Police Procedures 40, Research 40You're probably a crimes reporter at this point, given your past and all these forensic skills you have. Now, for another d10. This one is for your Faction, the sub-group of Scientists you mostly hang out with and identify with philosophically.

>>27348075Going to Earth was a bad idea, so you've headed back to your home territory and your home crew - the Solarians! Some of your best friends are whales, you know. Maybe you've even sleeved into a Surya once or twice, just to surf the solar winds and see what all the fuss is about.You gain the following:+2 Moxie +50 Rep (Your Choice) Flight 50, Interest: (Choose One) 50, Interest: (Choose One) 40, Medicine: Nanomedicine 40, Navigation 30, Networking: (Choose One) 30, Pilot: Spacecraft 25Now, for a major post-Fall Life Event.

>>27348069Journalists are best.
>>27348119You're probably not much of a fan of being a journalist. You get stuck with a boring repetitive job, but you get good at it pretty fast. You get a specialization in one skill for free. Probably Forensics.Now for your Firewall Event. Another d100.
>>27348163You stumble onto a Firewall operation purely by accident, probably as a result of your investigative journalism. Luckily for you, they decide to recruit you instead of spacing your stack! Gain +1 Moxie! And that's it for the story of Korean Batman getting inducted into Firewall. I'm really liking this lifepath system, it's a lot of fun and a great way to get the party together quickly.

>>27348313Shit, I forgot the language part. Mandarin!
>>27348344I'll say that's a 7. That's a Split Youth - you were born in one place but relocated. Roll d100 twice to determine where those two places are.
>>27348376>>27348390You were born to space-faring migrants but later returned to Earth in your younger years. 2d10s, one for migrants and one for Earth to determine things like social station.
Rolled 3, 3 = 6>>27348427
>>27348203So I picked up Transhuman off 4shared due to this thread.I now have a former yakuza in a Fury who kicks around in Earth orbit, was a pirate just before the Fall, but came to Earth during the Fall to try and rescue people, now has a legit job as a salvager, and I'm totally going to play her as a space pirate trying to reign in her impulses and walk the straight and narrow. Sure, her randomly rolled interests are Pornography, Drugs, and Spaceship Models, but hey, everyone has quirks.
>>27348470>Pornography, Drugs, and Spaceship Modelscommander_shepard.jpg
>>27348456Your family were drifters but when you came to Earth you were adopted by a fairly privileged family living in an enclave - basically a really hardcore gated community. When the fall came, you were evacuated and kept your Splicer morph. From Drifter you get: +1 MoxieFree Fall 15, Profession: (Choose One) 30, Scrounging 40 From Fall Evacuee: Enclave you get: +1 MoxieAcademics: (Choose One) 30, Profession: (Choose One) 30, Protocol 20Now a d100 for a youth Life Event.>>27348470Glad you like it. She kind of sounds like Captain Shepherd collecting her spaceship models. I'm even stoked about this as a GM because this will make genning some really interesting NPCs for a campaign super-quick and enjoyable.
Rolled 58>>27348546>>27348516Welp. Now I can't stop picturing her in N7 armor. I'm... not sure if that is good or bad.
>>27348593Like a lot of adopted kids, you don't really think the people in the Enclave appreciated the wealth they had. At least that's your excuse for all the shoplifting and pickpocketing you did. +10 Palming. d100 for age.
>>27348629You are in your 20's at the time of game-start, which means the Fall happened when you were a teenager and didn't have a career yet. You skip the Adult Path section and go straight to THE FALL. D100.
>>27348644>>27348652Woop, forget that, misread. You are in your 30's so you DO have a job before the Fall. Roll 1d10 to see if you stay on your current path (Civilian), take a specialization or change path.
>>27348743You go in for a specialization in a particular field. d100.
Rolled 37>>27348758something cooool pls
>>27348769... why is "Jack of All Trades" a specialism? Whatever. You pick whatever work comes your way rather than dedicating yourself to a particular field of study or industry. As a result, your skill set could be quite mixed and unusual. Choose any one skill at 40 and two at 30.
>>27348796Pre-Fall Adult Life Event. d100.
>>27344623And its quite debatable that they killed most humans only by proxy by inciting warfare amongst various power blocks and going full Reaper only at the end of it, when everyone was too distracted blowing the fucking communists or filthy capitalists to bits.
>>27348815You save someone from drowning. +10 Swimming. Now then. THE FALL. d100.
Rolled 84>>27348832>being able to swimHAHA! TIME FOR EUROPA!
>>27348843In the Fall, you make some.. unpopular decisions that damages your reputation in some circles but enhances it in others. You lose 5 rep in one circle but gain 10 g-rep (criminal rep). Perhaps you secure passage off world at the expense of others and have them sold into slavery or something.Now for your post-Fall adult life. 1d10 to determine how your points for with personal Focus and Faction alignment.
>>27344884I would usually go with Art : Culinary, because good cooking is always useful be it from tasteless cornucopia shit, on earth or on a exoplanet.that and being able to on and off tell the difference between real food and fabbed food can be very lucrative.Art: XP is another good one. Since it allows one to modify a lot with XP and help out with psychosurgery.Dancing is also great. A good dancer can get along in a lot of parties.but that is just my opinion.Seriously we are a fucking former criminal turned pirate who kept on piracy.being a good dancer, cook and making awesome XP of being a great cooking, dancing pirate sounds awesome.
>>27348899You are a notable figure within your particular faction, perhaps some kind of activist towards their goals at the cost of your personal focus (3 Faction PP, 1PP personal Focus)You are currently on the Civilian path. Roll d10 to see if you stay on that path or take a new one.
>>27348940You change path, abandoning your civilian life for something a bit more interesting in the wake of the Fall. 1d10 to determine what that is.
>>27349053You head back to the safety of the Enclave, moving among the privileged elite you spent your adolescence and whose stupidity you've always been able to take advantage of. 1d10 for a specialism in the Enclave
Rolled 6>>27349138and again
>>27349149You always know just what they want to hear, what they want to see. You end up becoming a minor celebrity in the Enclave, an Icon.+50 Rep (Your Choice) Art: (Choose One) 50, Disguise 30, Impersonation 20, Interest: (Choose One) 40, Kinesics 45, Perception 30, Persuasion 40, Protocol 40Now 1d10 for your Faction.
Rolled 4>>27349169Huh, kinda cool, and fits with us being a notable figure in our faction.
>>27349181You're a socialite. You come to love the spotlight and cling to it, despite having no discernible talent to really justify its presence. You gain:Art: (Choose One) 30, Networking: Media 40, Kinesics 30Now, a d100 for a post-fall Life Event.
>>27349241Ouch! You fall victim to a terrorist attack or a factional dispute! You die! Roll a d100 to determine the type of new morph you sleeve into.
Rolled 7>>27349261They finally got fed up with our Paris Hilton bullshit
>>27349270Hey, at least you manage to get yourself a Biomorph. Could be worse. d100 for the exact model.
>>27349295You wind up in a ... the fuck is this? Martian Alpiner? Why do you have fucking wings?Alpiners were a relatively common biomorph design on early frontier Mars, when temperatures and atmospheric pressure had not yet risen to present levels. Now they are found predominantly in the city of Olympus, where environmental conditions will always be incredibly harsh. Avid rock climbers and outdoor types also favor this morph, and in recent years it has enjoyed an unusual vogue among chic urbanites going for a rough-and-ready look without sleeving in the more de classe ruster morph.So, you're Bear Grylls with wings? Rough-and-tumble celebrity who's not quite as tough off-screen as he is on-screen?Okay, the last thing - your Firewall recruitment event. Another d100.
>>27349367Turns out someone you know was a Firewall agent! But then, you're a socialite media type. You know lots of people. Maybe this is your producer, maybe it's someone you talked to once at a party. But they tapped you because they know your skill set can be useful to open doors for the organization. You get a +10 to any skill.Okay, that's it. You can assemble those stats together into a character that just needs a bit of gear to be finished. It's late and I need to sleep, but this has been fun guys! Glad you enjoyed it too.
