One Shot Wednesday - Eclipse Phase 2nd Ed.
Eclipse Phase on Roll20
About the adventure
This is an Eclipse Phase 2nd Edition one shot run on Roll20.net. I will be using discord for audio/video communication. At a minimum you will need a roll20 account and a microphone. You do not need to know anything about Eclipse Phase, I will start with a brief overview of the game. Pre-generated characters will be provided. Mission Briefing: Welcome to Firewall. I am Ozymandias and you are here at my request. This is Solidarity Station. It has a long history with our organization and it will be your home for the rest of your life, at least one of them anyway. Approximately five days ago there was a catastrophic accident at a Jovian mining station, Karkarov 1 on Pasiphae, the largest moon and namesake of the Pasiphae group. The full extent of the damage is not known but based on the energy readings there is little hope of finding survivors. We still do not know the exact nature of the accident but thanks to some excellent aggregation work by our scanners we have uncovered some alarming peculiarities that warranted this operation which I have code named Long Night. The event was a gamma ray burst we believe consistent with an antimatter detonation. Antimatter is too expensive for use in mining and even if it was, the explosion was too large. Just prior to the burst there was a neutrino transmission that was intercepted by one of our listening posts. The transmission was encrypted using an algorithm we have never encountered and it is likely we will never be able to decode it. We were able to determine the destination of the transmission. The loss of life is bad enough but the Jovian response has been even more alarming. They have mobilized the entire third carrier group to the moon for a “rescue operation” and have refused all offers of outside aid. We have it on good authority that Dr. Lee Min-jun, head of the space warfare research group is leading the efforts there and we have unconfirmed reports that Space Force Commander General Adam Westmoreland appeared personally and is in close contact. We have more questions than answers right now but the leading theory is that the Jovians have an as yet unknown military base on this moon and have been developing secret weapons there. We have to understand what is taking place.
How to prepare
No knowledge of Eclipse Phase is needed. Roll20.net will be used for maps and dice rolling, so you will need a roll20 account. Discord will be used for audio/video communication so you will need an account on Discord and a microphone. A camera is nice to have, but not required.
What I provide
Everything required for all to play this one shot on roll20.net supplemented with discord.
Players take part in a cross-faction secret network dubbed Firewall that is dedicated to counteracting "existential risks" — threats to the existence of transhumanity, whether they be biowar plagues, self-replicating nanoswarms, nuclear proliferation, terrorists with WMDs, net-breaking computer attacks, rogue AIs, alien encounters, or anything else that could drive an already decimated transhumanity to extinction.
