Eclipse Phase: Ghost In The

Shell
Welcome
The year is 2035 and global recession has
resulted in the collapse of western economy.
Isolationist Japan has endured due to their strict
policies and have moved out into international
markets, operating with profits beyond
comprehension.
State police forces, unable to keep up in
large part with the new trends in cybercrime have
been augmented with Japanese Section 9 units
with the intention of training local recruits to
continue these duties.

Ghost points are awarded by the Game


Master at the end of a session and are gained or
lost by your actions throughout the session.

Melee Double Attack


Characters that meet the following criteria
can use a special double melee attack for an
additional 1d10 damage.
A score of at least 60 in your chosen
melee skill.
A speed of at least 2.
Equipped with two identical melee
weapons.
The special attack must be declared by the
attacker before they roll and can only be used
once per round (e.g. only on 1 of your 2 turns in
any given round).

Character Generation
In order to make more room for character
growth across the campaign there have been
some changes to character generation and
statistics. In generation these changes are resulted
in lower amounts of points to distribute.
Aptitude Points have been lowered from
105 to a new total of 70. The points can be
distributed in a minimum of 5 points at a time
and each skill must have at least 5 points in.
Customization Points have also been
lowered from 1000 to 500. Additionally it's only
permissible to go as high as 60 points in any skill
during character creation (unless a perk or
background says otherwise). Characters
automatically get 70 points in Language: English.
Reputation Points are no longer
distributed at creation. They are earned through
choosing particular backgrounds and through
play.
Credits remain unchanged; every
character is given 5000 credits at creation.

Backgrounds
Everyone has a past, even if you don't
remember it. You may choose one of the
following backgrounds and receive the bonuses
and disadvantages that it brings. If you wish to
make a custom background, talk with your DM
about making one.

EIDETIC MEMORY
Prosthetic
[Low]
This augment is attached to the brain-case of a
cyberbrain and records sensory input. Only
information that the user focuses on is recorded,
for example if a user reads a paper or book they
will remember everything contained within but
they may not remember the colour of every car
that passed them on the street on the way home
(unless they were actually looking for that
information at the time it was presented). No
training is required to use this augmentation and
accessing the stored information is controlled by
software-cyberbrain interface to ensure accurate
and timely recall.

CARAPACE ARMOUR
Prosthetic
[High]
Ceramic plates are secured to the superstructure
of any prosthetic and provide 11/11 armour. Due
to the nature of this modification the user cannot
wear additional armour. The advantage is that
carapace armour does not degrade as it takes
damage but it does remove some mobility and
flexibility.
