Eclipse Phase – The Thunder and the Whirlwind Episode 2

Jared Dirac, the traitor to Firewall, has been captured, intact. Four of the Burner Morphs have been captured (two in less than mint condition.) The VTOL, the weaponry, and the gear from the smuggler’s cave have all been captured.

The first step for the Firewall Sentinels will be to parse the information they gathered. Interrogate Dirac, examine the records from the Red Devils, and – carefully – investigate the nanotech, both the secured container and the nanoparticles.

From there, drastic steps will have to be taken to shut down the terrorists, and fast.

Side Chatter

PLAYERS

  • James – TOM (The Optimal Man). An AI programmed in a lunar laboratory, designed to be able to crack any digital protection and retrieve any data (as well as be the best psychotherapist in the known ‘verse). His accent algorithms are slowly degrading.
  • Travis – John Clastion.  Survivor of the Fall, he runs a delivery service on Mars, preferring to use his feet instead of mundane transport. He also knows all about the drugs of the transhuman future and the criminals and cartels that supply them.
  • Kevin – Griswold Stuart. Griswold Stuart is a 23rd century man, born in a 21st century man’s body, living in an AF10 world.  Reformed by Firewall, he did his best to adapt to his new world and his new place in it.  Formerly a programmer, business executive, and playboy, he is no longer sure of his own memories, much less his identity.
  • Josh – Sam Franklin. Originally a police officer with a wife, house, and the American Dream.  Left the force when he realized how corrupt it was and signed up with Direct Action.  After a long service that cost him his body and some of his memories, he works freelance for anyone who can pay, looking for his wife and his missing time.
  • Matt – Noah Lucas.  A kangaroo uplift egohunter and x-caster who escaped from Earth during the fall.  Now works towards making sure no uplifts are abused or exploited in the same way he was before the end of the world worked in his favor.

    Loved this game, reminded of the “Dead Space” encounter of the Lunar tier of “Know Evil”. Only with more of a “Total Recall” vibe. and wow, the mission didn’t end in PC deaths! Go Team!

      We are surprisingly resilient in these games. Also spindle climber makes you into infinite spidermans.
