Eclipse Phase – The Thunder and the Whirlwind Episode 5

spaceElevatorbanner

The Firewall team, having been given some forced downtime, promptly ran smack into a series of increasingly dangerous problems. Someone has deployed a basilisk onto the mesh. Its capabilities, motivations, and intent are unknown. A hypercorp bureaucratic drone was subverted and was apparently used as a puppet to begin some sort of sabotage using recovered TITAN nanotech.

PROX-E KING has ordered the Sentinels to make all possible haste to shut down Akinye and her Red Devils terrorist organization. Unfortunately, the spies have almost no information about Akinye or her organization, and their plans, location, or intents. Flying blind, they have to attempt to track down as much information as possible and then make their move, before the Red Devils strike.

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.

    So, I’m pretty sure that Kangaroo Ship… thing can compete with space whales in terms of quirky concept. Quick! Don’t let Caleb know what you’ve created! XD

      Nah, kangaroo spaceplanes and terrifying meat habs are within the realm of exhuman alterations. Just like people who are centipedes with hundreds of built in laser guns.
