Eclipse Phase.Lifepath generation.Let's do this. 1d10 for Aptitudes1d100 for native language1d100 for starting age (might make you roll on another table if super-old)1d10 for type of childhood.
The first time we did this, we got a Dutch robot spider space pirate. Then we got a depressed illiterate Vietnamese psychic chick. THIS CAN ONLY GO GREAT
Rolled 8Should be fun, haven't delved into the random chargen for EP yet.1d10 for Aptitudes
Rolled 89>>27380555and the 1d100 for language or age
>>27380555You are a Thrill Seeker! Your base Aptitudes (unmodified by your Morph) go thus:Thrill Seeker: COG 10 COO 20 INT 15 REF 20 SAV 15 SOM 15 WIL 10So you're not much of a thinker and don't have much self-control but you're a decent talker and you're really good at agility/dexterity stuff.
>>27380605>REMOVE KEBAB>starting with self
>So you're not much of a thinker and don't have much self-control>TurkishMuh realism
>>27380630Hey, if you hate Turks you might like Eclipse Phase - last time I randomly genned a character he ended up dying TWICE.
Rolled 7I think we missed age
>>27380646You have a Stable childhood, putting down roots in a particular community. Roll another d100 to determine exactly what that community is. >>27380665You are in your 20's at the time of the game starting, which means you were adolescent during the Fall. You skip the pre-Fall Adult path.
Rolled 4>>27380683>community>>27380644Wait, there's death in chargen? Meh.
>>27380710Like death means anything in Eclipse Phase.
>>27380710Yes. There are lots of things that can happen that basically are to the tune of "something happens and you need a new body". Most of them involve horrible death but there are a few like "you lost a bet and now you have to be in an Uplift morph". This is Eclipse Phase. Death isn't permanent.>>27380710You were born on Earth right around the time things started getting especially shitty for Earth. Another d10 will determine your social status while on Earth.
>>27380746You are an Enclaver, lucky enough to be born into a community with big enough walls and explosive enough security to keep the huddled masses of the filthy poor out. You're either born or sleeved into a shiny Splicer with all those nice gene-fixes rather than a dirty Flat with cancer.You also get the following:+1 MoxieAcademics: (Military Science) 40, Interest: (Habitat Design) 20, Interfacing 35, Networking: (Autonomists) 50, Persuasion 40, Pilot: (Groundcraft) 30, Profession: (Forensics) 40, Protocol 30(By the way, I'm randomly rolling your skills since these give you things like "Academics (Choose One)")
>>27380785You're still an Enclaver with that roll, don't worry. (It's a 3-5)Now, give me a d100 for a pre-Fall Life Event, some significant part of your childhood that has had a lasting impact on the person you now are.
Rolled 22I don't remember - is the exsurgent infection a creation event?
>>27380872A traumatic childhood event leaves you with post-traumatic stress disorder. Speaking of post-traumatic stress disorder, the world just fucking ended! Roll a d100 to determine how you handle THE FALL.
>>27380872Yes - that's how you get to be a psychic. At some point you're exposed to a less-shitty version that gives you psychic powers. You can also get infected in a way that just kills you, or that kills you AND renders your surviving self mentally fragile.
>>27381111Oh Jesus. Not only do YOU die, but all your backups get lost. Only part of you lives on in a beta fork - basically a kind of shitty photocopy of the original. You gain the Beta Trait (see below) and randomly roll for a new Morph. d100 to determine the type of morph (bio, synth, uplift, info) Beta: This character may not have a Moxie higher than 1 and no Active skills higher than 60, nor may they possess the Psi trait. They also have only a limited set of their original self’s memories—much of their previous life is simply lost to them. They automatically receive the Edited Memories trait (p.149, EP), without gaining the bonus CP. Beta forks are, of course, illegal in many jurisdictions, and some consider them less than human (the gamemaster may apply a Social Stigma: Beta trait in appropriate circumstances; again no bonus CP are gained).
>>27381149Jesus. I bet the guy who hates Turks is happy.
>>27381164>100Oh god, what is it?
>>27381164You become an Infomorph, little better than a AGI given the social stigma against beta forking. You don't have any meat-parts or metal-parts. How the mighty have fallen. Roll a d100 to determine what sort of Infomorph/Eidolon you are.
Rolled 85>>27381190WELL, THIS CAN'T GET ANY WORSE CAN IT!?
>>27381194It's not too bad - you end up as a Sage eidolon, which is actually a pretty nice deal apparently. Maybe you end up as the personal assistant to a scientist, or have to do data processing as an infugee for a hypercorp. Perhaps in the Fall you simply couldn't get your hands on a new body as they were all being taken up.Sage: This cutting-edge eidolon is too new to have seen widespread adoption by scientists and academics, but its popularity is spreading among intellectuals, researchers, and others who can afford it. Enhancements: Eidetic Memory, Hyper Linguist, Math Boost, Mnemonic Augmentation Aptitude Maximum: 40 Speed Modifier: +2 Advantages: +10 COG, +5 to one other aptitude of the player’s choice CP Cost: 40 Credit Cost: Expensive (minimum 40,000)Now for your Adult Post-Fall path. Roll a d10 to determine the balance between your personal Focus and the demands of your Faction.
Rolled 2>>27381242At least it wasn't a 93
>>27381261You are a Faction paragon, meaning your time is taken up primarily by the demands of your faction and not your personal Focus. Which makes sense considering you're someone's data-bitch.Now, because you missed the Adult section before you need to determine what path you're one. Currently you're an Enclaver but roll 1d10 to determine if you stay on that path, change gear or take a specialization
>>27381343You stay in the Enclave, meaning maybe you end up the infomorph of someone you knew in your past life. It would explain why you get a pretty nice infomorph and why someone's putting up with you being a beta - you're basically the ghost of their friend or something.Now, what do they use you for? Give a d10 to determine.
Rolled 10>>27381366>Mental sex
>>27381366"Ted, why are you so sad today? Is something the matter?">Naw man, it's just that... A friend died today a few years. It's been quite a while since I heard his voice, hell even saw his face."Who was he?">He was... my best friend. Maybe one day I'll tell you who he was.
>>27381370You actually end up being used for Psychosurgery. It's actually fairly common for muses to act as their user's therapist, so maybe you're essentially doing that but really well. Alternatively you get sent into the minds of crazy people to sort shit out again.You gain +50 r-repAcademics: Psychology 50, Kinesics 30, Medicine: (Psychiatry) 40, Networking: (Scientists) 35, Perception 30, Persuasion 20, Profession: Psychotherapy40, Psychosurgery 50Now for your Faction. You're an Enclaver, but what sort of Enclaver? Give me another d10.
>>27381422So we made Turkish HAL.Ok.
Rolled 7>>27381433The things we must see that only lurk in the minds of crazy people.
>>27381422>>27381366Oh dear god that's the saddest thing
>>27381462Socialite? I'lll say that's the guy you're attached to, so basically you double as his therapist and his personal assistant. Art: (Digital Art) 40, Deception 25, Interest: (AGI Rights) 50, Intimidation 30, Kinesics 40, Networking: Media 40, Persuasion 30, Protocol 40Now, a Post-Fall Life Event. D100.
Rolled 44>>27381504>inb4 terrible terrible things
>>27381459>>27381422"He meant a lot to you, didn't he?">More than you will ever know."If it makes you feel better, I could be your new best friend.">Don't worry man, you already are."Ted, you're crying even more. Did I say something inappropriate?"
>>27381513>Look up what 44 is>It is terrible, terrible things
>>27381515;_;7Dude stop I can't deal
>>27381513>>27381515>>27381422...>"A friend or relative of yours opts for true death, but bequeaths you their estate. You gain 25,000 credits"Ted. TED.TED WHAT DID YOU DO
>>27381532Just wait until OP says what 44 is.
>>27381543He just can't deal with it man. He just can't deal.
>>27381543GUYS! I'M SO SORRY! I TRIED MY HAND AT WRITING SOME FEELSY SHIT AND NOW I AM BECOME FEEL, FEELER OF FEELS.
This thread is archived right? These feels are depressing as shit man.
>>27381543Oh god oh god oh god
This is hilarious.
OP here.Honestly, I don't know if I want this guy to roll for Firewall or not.Should we say that part of Ted's estate is used to buy Turkface McTragedy a new morph and randomly roll to determine it again? D100 to determine category, then a second d100 for model?>>27381563>>27381585These feels are why I love the Lifepath system. This is just plugging in a bunch of numbers to a thing and getting out HNNNGH
Rolled 72, 91 = 163>>27381634But what would he do?Also rolling just to see what it would be.
>>27381658If he's in Firewall, all kind of weird shit.But then maybe Ted was the one in Firewall and Turkface McTragedy is used as a muse by another agent.
>>27381658Synthmorph, Opteryx model>This recon morph is designed to be a fast, lightweight runner, climber, and flyer. The opteryx looks like a one-meter-tall winged, synthetic dinosaur and adopts an almost horizontal body posture when running, its tail held out for balance. Its wings are fully functional arms equipped with claws. This morph is a favorite for gatecrashers and neo-avians in the dinosaur identity subculture. It comes equipped with cartography package software
>>27381680>Hey Samuel, who did you tag along with before you got shifted over to me?"I was with Ted. He told me that papers had been filed for my transfer. Did I do something wrong to anger the organisation?">O-oh, shit. No... No man, I think it was just time."Time for what? A transfer?">Y-yeah, something like that.
>>27381695I can't seem to find the pages to determine morph category and model. Where?
Rolled 45>>27381695To diverge slightly for OP, out of curiousity (since I can't think how else he'd get a morph like that..)TIME TO ROLL FOR GATECRASHING EVENT.Poor Beta Tragic Turkface. Talk about tragedy.
>>27381734The random morph tables are on page 44 (in the pdf it's actually more like 46 or 47 because of the cover etc)
Rolled 51>>27381755That's.. actually not too bad. Just some new skills. No mind rapey.
>>27381755WHY WOULD YOU SEND THIS GUY THROUGH A PANDORA GATEDO YOU WANT TO KILL US ALL
>>27381695Also it is actually Nauiloid. Basically a robo space squid.
>>27380551Do you have a link to that thread?
>>27381778Well, look at it this way.>>2738177751 means you don't ever appear on the other side.
>>27381752>>27381762Ahh, thanks, I was looking in the wrong place.
>>27381777I'll call this your Firewall rollFirewall recruits you as an informant to keep tabs on someone or something they're worried about, giving you a +10 to Infosec. I NO LONGER WISH TO TELL YOU THE TALE OF THE TRAGIC TURK. LET US ROLL AGAIN AND WISH FOR HAPPIER TIMES
>>27381780"Life is madness; a linear sequence of tragedies we desperately try to explain away."
>>27381800The one with Captain Silkbeard was archived a couple days ago. The one with the Vietnamese psychic wasn't IIRC.
Rolled 69>>27381801I left it in that time. 44 is live-able. But 51 seems to be the sort of thing that'd fit this guy.Time to leave it for OP to see if he actually wants to really roll on the gatecrash table.
>>27381814>Random Turk has the worst life ever.>Goes mad from grief.>Becomes nihilistic space squid.And suddenly the best quest giver in history was born.
Rolled 2>>27381854Second roll for the background table.
>>27381839>>27381854You are a Techie, and a Punjabi one at that!Techie 20 15 10 15 15 15 15 Give me age now.
>>27381861You have another Stable Youth. Again, d100 to determine where you were born.
>>27381879Hey op, where are you getting these rules from?
>>27381888Wait, I'm confused. Can you give a tally of what we currently have?
>>27381892Transhuman, the most recent Eclipse Phase release. It contains a Lifepath system that makes character creation fun, when it isn't utterly soul-destroying in the case of Sadface The Turk
>>27381892Eclipse Phase, Transhuman.New book.http://www.4shared.com/office/_EDPRKvs/Eclipse_Phase_Transhuman__1_.html
>>27381903>Sadsquid the TurkFixed that for you.
>>27381902We've just started our second character (a girl, since we alternate genders). You have the Punjabi language as native, the Techie aptitude package and the Wholesome Youth (I call it Stable since Wholesome implies morals etc you don't really get in a criminal background)
>>27381924>Cheerful, bright-eyed young tech girl teams up with world-weary, clinically depressed robot squid.I NEED THIS.HOLY FUCK.I NEED THIS IN MY BODY.
>>27381909Okay, another Earthborn. Give me a d10 to determine social status on Earth.
Rolled 3>>27381947Come on hyperelite for sadsquid the turk's partner@!
>>27381961Not Hyperelite, but still privileged. An Enclaver and - wait, wasn't Sadsquid Faceturk an Enclaver too?

Please don't be depressing.
>>27382005>Ted had a younger sister
Rolled 69>>27382014You fucking monster. You had to start.
>>27382024Hey man, I already regret my creation. THESE FEELS HAVE NO BREAKS.
>>27382024Being a bully has its advantages. You get +10 to Intimidation. You monster. I bet you're the person that traumatized Squidturk Facesad. That PTSD he had must have come from SOMEWHERE.Roll d100 for age.
>>27382041>I WANT TO GET OFF MR SQUID'S FEELS RIDE.
>>27382062Dude no.On 69, you're raised around animals and get +10 animal handling.
>>27382014>Jennifer, I have not seen Ted in some time.Squid, what are you still doing here!?>I was waiting for Ted. I made up his datalists, but when I attempted to contact him, i was unable.Oh, Squid...>You know that your brother dislikes it when you call me that. I cannot fathom why, as it is a pleasant colloquialism, but...>I am sorry Jennifer, did I say something wrong?>Please stop crying, I will reach into the archives and play your favorite song>Error: Cannot access archives. It is as if they are not there.>I have had this error for weeks, and I cannot fathom why.>Jenny? What is this?...
Rolled 36>>27382062She's going to be like.. six.
>>27382079Oh, you're right. I misread it. It's 1am and I've spent all day teaching, in my defense.You're good with animals. +10 Animal Handling. You are yet to have any specializations with squids.Still give me d100 for age.
>>27382093> sixFeel free to prove me wrong guys, but I think in the base 10AF setting, only the Lost can actually be under 10, as far as PCs go.
>>27382093Actually, she's in her 30's at the time of the game starting, which means she was in her 20's when the Fall happened and she gets to have an Adult path. Roll a d10 to see if she sticks on the Enclaver path or goes to do something else/customize.
>>27382062Wait, wasn't 69 raised around animals?
>>27382119It's common for recent births to be mentally raised in time-accelerated simulspaces to allow them to basically experience around eighteen years of learning etc in about six months. The Lost were just the first stab at it and everything went horribly wrong.
Rolled 1>>27382062Were we tsundre for Turkey McTragic?
>>27380539Can I get a pdf of this anywhere?
>>27382142Ah alright.I had understood that the lost were the only ones at all, and that nobody had tried again for obvious psychopathic reasons.
>>27382153>>27382132I misread it and it's actually Animal Handling, not Child Mishandling that you're good at.You stick on the Enclave path into your adulthood. Give me a d10 to see where your career begins.
>>27382080"Squid, do you remember the days back in the playgrounds near the school?">I am not so sure anymore. I remember them fondly, what little is left."Oh man, that sucks.">I remember The Fall though. I was having a panic attack. No one could blame me, but I remember it being for a different reason. I think the "big metal bullies" were coming"The what?">Big metal bullies. Quite a nice and childish way to put it, in hindsight."Man, Squid I am so sorry.">Sorry for what? It's not like you caused The Fall"No I guess I didn't."I'm implying her bullying Squid caused his panic attack which put him in spot to get killed. Far fetched but still. FEELS MAN!
>>27382182> FEELS MAN!No. Too far.
Hey, using life path, do skills stack? I'm running through it myself and have some sort of ungodly adhd robot-loving spy pilot from germany, who's got about 90, grand total, in piloting (spacecraft) if I stack the skills, from random rolls. Is the stacking how it goes?
>tfw not sure why friend is upset>tfw everything you say makes it worse for some reason
Rolled 2>>27382170Well, if noone else will.>I have a question, JenniferWhat is it, squid?>What is it like to pet the cat?Excuse me?>I cannot recall. It looks nice. It is nice that the animals like you.
>>27382190Okay, I'll concede you that point. I think I'll go take a nap."When is Ted going to come back from his nap?"Okay, I'll stop. I've milked my two posts of fame.
>>27382247Pretty sure it does.But remember, if you fall a second time on the same package, you have to reroll.
Rolled 5>>27382296It should be>When is Ted coming back from his vacation?>He left quite a while ago. The work has been piling up.>Also, I haven't been able to talk with him for a while. I miss him.>As he has not been answering his cell phone, could I ask you to please talk with him?>If I have offended him in any way, please tell him I am sorry.
>>27382311>>27382247Also, check the 'add everything together' rule somewhere in chapter 1. I believe skills over 60 are harder to get.
Rolled 7>>27382311Ta. I ended up with a superlative pilot and okay spy/bot jammer who had ADHD and frail sanity from having Seen Some Shit in the fall and was massively about being left the fuck alone and getting the job done by his motivations, alone. He was from Germany and was a bit of a wanker.Awesome. The current one is shaping up to be an inhumanely fast psychic English Chav.
>>27382316I hate you with a passion unmatched by any force short of a full TITAN invasion.
>>27382316"He got sent the long way to some other star. Maybe you could see him some day, far in the future."Squid, the morbidly depressed Reaper searches for his long lost Ted
Rolled 5>>27382344And the ME /EP crossover just got a lot more depressing.
Rolled 79>>27382267>Oh god, she's a Con Artist.>Her brother is dead, her only friend is a computer / squid,>And she survives by being a con artist.Also, is OP still here? Rollin' d100 for Pre-Fall Event.
>>27382247I did it to,I got a german kid who got "Lucky" and got to go to work to terraform mars, spent some time training infosec there somehowAdult life begins and fuck that! Time to be a pirate..Promptly get firedFuck that! Time to be a pirateBut then the fall, and had to resleve,As a space fighter rover (And gained morphing disorder). FuckWell fuck that, switched gears became a criminal, an anarchist And now being in that rover seems right, Riht at homeJoined firewall and got sabotaged but luckily enough got resleeved into a remadeGot paid a shiton 30k, credits which was used to buy essential gearThen, find parents arent real parents
>>27382328Ah, true, page 38.>>27382247So yeah, actually, 90 turns to 75.
>>27382259>>27382267You are a Con artist, turning heads and breaking hearts. You excel and making people believe exactly the wrong thing and then capitalizing from their stupidity. You gain: Deception 40, Profession: Con Schemes 30, Persuasion 30Now roll 1d100 for a pre-Fall Adult Life Event.
>>27382376The Stress of Rapid technological change overwhelms you. Gain the Trait Mental Disorder (ADHD)
Rolled 83>>27382398Jesus shit. What could get worse about this? Are we soley responsible for the fall?
>>27382376Sorry, yes, I just went in the shower. The stress of rapid technological development is hard for you and all that stimulus is just so... distracting. You get ADHD. Now it's time for the Fall. d100.
Rolled 2>>27382424Sorry, I wasn't sure and was gettin' ANTSY.All this FEELS makes me giddy.
>>27382419Oh god!See: >>27382182
>>27382438Somehow, you manage to get to safety and survive unharmed during the Fall while Turkish McSad loses literally everything. You gain 1 Moxie and have to roll on the Story Event table (1d100)
>>27382419You take up martial arts training. Gain +10 Unarmed Combat skill.
Rolled 43>>27382455I think I like this one better. My current random one is an illiterate savant in the field of mathematics on Titan. I am confus.
>>27382499Well, maybe it's all maths and pictograms.
>>27382499While fleeing over the course of the Fall, you come to a stunning revelation - one or both of your parents weren't your real parents. Perhaps you were mourning your father and then met your 'real' father. Time for post-Fall Adult life. Roll a d10 to see how your Faction and Focus balance out.
Rolled 2>>27382472Sweet jesus, I'm not sure if her good qualities make this better or worse. I mean, she kinda missed the biggest event, y'know, around.What was the fall like, Squid?>What do you mean?Well, I didn't get to see any of it.>It was not pleasant.That bad, huh?>How did you miss the Fall?I was hanging out with Chai-lo Chan!>The movie star?I told him I was a co-star, and he let me right in!>That worked?He even taught me some moves! Like, Who-Chah! and Wha-Tah!>I am very pleased at your martial prowess. Perhaps you could have helped while I was dying.Hey, don't be a sadpants! See that guy over there? Betcha I can make him give me 20 bucks!
Rolled 3>>27382523Squid is actually YOUR brother
>>27382545I want to cut off your face.
>>27382546You strike an even balance between the demands of your Faction and your personal Focus (3pp each)Now to determine what those actually are. Roll a d10 to see if you stay on the Enclaver path
Rolled 10>>27382571This is just all kinds of... Wow. Now this is a bunch of characters. Is she still human? I don't want to have missed anything.
Rolled 10>>27382578I think we have a Jennifer-Alpha and a Jennifer-Beta. Timelines, yo.
>>27382578She is still in her original Splicer morph, so yes she's still human. Slightly better than human, actually. You change gears after the Fall, feeling compelled to make your own path or cut old ties. Roll another d10 to see what faction you go for.
>>27382592Yeah, someone else in this thread has the PDF and is using it too. I'm OP and I generally go for the first result unless a subsequent one is funnier.
Rolled 10>>27382604Umm. Now, did she take Squid with her, or not?>It has been 2 standard weeks since I have last heard from Jennifer.>I believe she said she was going to a party "Way out back">I do hope she comes back soon, I am a terrible conversation partner with myself.
>>27382612Or sadder. You know you want to ride Mr Squids Sad Death Ride
>>27382630You go Techie, roll another d10 to determine specialty.
Rolled 9>>27382650From con artist to technical support, huh?
>>27382662Pretty much - you end up going straight Techie, signing on to a ship and just doing your damndest to keep that thing flying. +50 Rep (Your Choice) Academics: (Nanotechnology) 40, Hardware: (Robotics) 50, Hardware: (Groundcraft) 25, Interfacing 40, Infosec 20, Networking: (Criminals) 20, Perception 20, Profession: (Psychotherapy) 50, Programming 30That was your Focus package, now for your Faction package. Another d10.
Rolled 10>>27382727>Nanotechnology, Robotics, Interfacing, PsychotherapyConned her way onto a ship, learned everything she can about technology.Could she be... trying to help a certain Squid?
Rolled 9>>27382727Rollin' for Faction.
>>27382746She made the Beta fork to help her practice con tricks, and it was all she managed to save of him
>>27382746>>27382753Choose between Titanian or Venusian.Venusian favors Uplift Rights, but Titanian favors technosocialism
>>27382746>Squid, I have a new visual processor for you. Sorry about the delay, parts are tight right now."It's okay, I kinda like seeing gray only. It's a nice colour">C'mon, you know that's depressing as shit."Yeah, I guess you are right. I don't think I've seen colour since The Fall though. Let's hope the laws of physics haven't changed since that"
>>27382746>You have endeavored to correct certain deficiencies in my morph.What? No, stupid, I just noticed we were missing a few things.>The things you brought were more than adequate for repairing the minor damages to my manipulator...Just shut up, ok? I didn't do it for you.>Thank you anyway. I did miss you, especially since I can't move. Did you know the ceiling tile has exactly 2,456 indentations on its surface?
>>27382782>Visual processor only seeing in grey>AF 10What kind of shit processor was he using?
>>27382792S...STUPID SQUID! IT'S NOT LIKE I LIKE YOU OR ANYTHING!
>>27382794The most busted ass piece of shit you could possibly imagine.
Rolled 1>>27382767>it's the fall>She gets out of the bunker with her new movie-star friend, gets out of dodge before anyone gets what's up>Goes home>Her friend his dead>Ted is holding the body>She uses her skills to get access to a ship, impersonating a tech so she can use his computers>Plugs Squid's brain into the machine, makes a copy>Fucks it up>Now he's a Beta Fork, and the one person on board she can trust>Keep on smiling. Just like you always did back on Earth.>You can fix this, girl.>It'll be just like the old days soon.
>>27382794He's a beta fork. It might not be his hardware. It might just be something that was taken out of his Ego.
Rolled 8>>27382774If she's on the road to helpin' Squid, would Uplift Right be the way to getting him to be a Person again?Otherwise, it sounds like Technosocialism would be the place to go to get the tech to fix a Beta.I'm not familiar enough with Eclipse Phase though, is any of that correct?
>>27382847Forks are similar issue to Uplifts, but get less attentionTitan is probably for the best, you can take advantage of their "A body for every mind" laws and get squid sleeved up. May be thats how he came by his Sage eidolon
>>27382847Uplift Rights would be a political thing to help him get equal rights as in the Inner System infolife is general considered second-class citizens or being property.Technosocialism would be more helpful towards his hardware and software than his social status.
>>27382847Uplift Rights is more for uplifted animals, and Technosocialism is Space Sweden.Or, well, that's the short version.>>27382858Yeah, being in cold storage sucks.
>>27382858Sounds like Titan's the place to be, then.>It's OK, he's totally a mind. He just needs a new sleeve, last one got kinda messed up.I dunno maam, the computer says he's a fork...>Naw, it's a glitch. Don't worry, I totally vouch for him. Hey, are you free later?

Indicating his mirroring of Jennifer's complex emotional state but ultimate confusion of how to process and respond to her outburst.> I apologize for irritating or offending you again. I did not mean to. I'm afraid my social interaction matrices have not been updated in quite awhile. I remember Ted and I talking about girls we used to date. I can't remember her face, but Ted said her name was Natalie, we used to go on... Oh, I'm sorry Jennifer, I was rambling again. My processor glitches sometimes. Are you leaving again so soon? Stay safe and come back when you can.
>>27382883Titan it is. You gain the following:50 @-rep Academics: (Genetics) 50, Academics: (Cognitive Science) 40, Interfacing 25, Networking: Autonomists 50, Persuasion 30, Pilot: Aircraft 30, Programming 40, Research 30Roll d100 for a post-Fall Life Event, something that happens to you once you relocate to Titan.

Rolled 4Favourite creation so far: A former math professor in his 60's, who is now an enthusiastic member of the ultimate's faction and a combat sync running around in a remade biomorph. Oh, and for his two mental disorders (Combat async package, 5pp) I selected insomnia and borderline personality disorder. He's a killing machine with a 70 in academics: Mathematics, 80 in unarmed combat, the survivor aptitude package (that rounds out to 20/20/20/25/15/30/20 with his morph and the two +5 aptitude bits I rolled) and the ability to turn your mind into swiss cheese.And he refuses to be left alone. Ever. But he can't sleep. So when he's all tuckered out, he passes out, and then panics and takes the fastest route to more people. Being an ultimate, that probably involves going through walls. Or just diving straight into their brains. Jesus christ, what have I made?

And so ends my rolling of Sadsquid and Jennifer because I need to go to bed. If anyone else wants to take over with the rolling and so on, feel free. I've submitted this to be archived as Eclipse Phase And The Infinite Sadness.

Rolled 91>>27383558Hope it's interesting.

Rolled 77>>27383706Should be a good 'nuff number.
>>27383735I'm sorry but >>27383738 is way funnier given context. We're a shoplifter. We danced our way outta that store and no one gave a fuck. +10 to Palmingtime for a 1d100 again.

>>27384089Oh man, you accidentally the dice and simultaneously supplied our d100s forever. Thanks bro.>>27384105It's cool.So before the fall we were forced into a position of heavy responsibility. Clearly, dancing was not the way forward according to Lady Luck. SOMEONE had to rig that voting system and get us elected as Mayor but HEY at least the mayor is a capable dancer.1d100 for the fall event
>>27384203Fuuuuck dude! The images of the headhunter drones in action is forever burned into our minds. We now have PTSD. Finland during the Fall, not even once.I will need xd10 wherein x is the number of rolls you think we'll need to make. I think it'll be like three.

>>27384257Okay, so we're defined by our actions. I'd say that's an accurate notion. I mean, we're centered around our dancing and pickpocketing. Yeah.>>27384258After that, we stayed our course on the Enclaver path. This time as an Icon. Holy shit, our dancing is finally paying off. Legally.However, we kinda fell out with the enclaver types so we sought newer, shinier dance floors. Which kinda happened to be with the Exhumans to be exact. Man, our human physiology just isn't cut for what we want to accomplish.One single d100 is all we have left to see just where our quick feet and hands have taken us in life.

We developed some new skills, apparently.After our quick stint crashing those gates, Firewall obviously wanted our talents.>>27384414And that gives us....Oh snap, someone close to us is a proxy and wants out.I gotta say, this sounds like Finnish Elite Beat Agents: Firewall Escapade Escape>mfw
Taking these into account>>27384405>>27384414>>27384461I'll try and get us some gear and other shit that needs rolling.>37Okay, we'll say 4. Which gives us, 10k + 9k from the 95.We have 19k then for the Security package. Huh, we'll take those extras. A star needs his personal protection, even if he has to do it himself.In essence we have a Finnish Elite Beat Agent running around with riot armour and forensic scanners. I gotta say, this is quite the character.
>>27384589But what is his name?
>>27385517Bjorn. Bjorn Fir-Danzen.
>>27385549That pun it's so terrible it's brilliant. This shall be his name.
Okay, guys, I have a question about one specific part of the Lifepath rules. Assume the following results:>Split Youth>Infolife>Post-Fall BirthHow would this be treated? I couldn't find anything in the rules pertaining to this scenario.
>>27387579>You are a fragment of one of the destroyed TITAN machines that piggybacked on a Theseus emergency farcaster signal. You have no idea what the fuck is going on.>You were born in a shithole, got killed, too poor to resleeve. So instead you signed on with a guy as his indentured servant so you could get to somewhere less shitty.Or are we talking mechanics?
>>27387684Mechanics, speficially. Quoting from Transhuman, page 58:>Characters with AGI backgrounds must roll 1d10. On a result of 1–3, the AGI was created after the Fall.>In this case, ignore any other backgrounds rolled at this stage and move immediately to Step 9: Adult Post-Fall Paths (p. 65).
>>27387890Then you probably ignore Split Youth and Post-Fall Birth.
>>27387890I'd say that makes you a VERY recent creation since Split Youth limits the size of the package you get. Your created function is your post-Fall package.
