Howdy!

So I wanted to run a game of this tabletop that I recently found called Eclipse Phase!

Since it's fairly obscure, you might be wondering: what even IS Eclipse Phase?

Essentially, it's a science fiction, cyberpunk, cosmic horror tabletop RPG.

If that sounds even mildly interesting, here's some links to more information: If you're at all interested, please post in this thread. Slots are limited, however, so I will need to know some important information so I can select players. Please fill out the following in your post:

Code: Select all

[b]What days are you free, normally? [/b]
[b]What times are you free on those days, normally? Please use EST. [/b]
[b]What's your experience with tabletop RPGs in general? [/b]
[b]Can you use Discord? [/b]
[b]Can you tolerate a nerd who really likes robots as your GM? [/b]
I can probably take 5-6 players. Note that my own personal friend circle has been invited to play too, so it might not all be friendly faces you've seen on SOTF!

Regardless if you get in or not, you'll be able to see the horrific consequences of all the terrible, terrible decisions the party makes in here.

Get cracking!

G'day.

This does look and sound quite interesting. Am always interested in trying out unique settings like these. So yup, I'd like to be in. As for your questions:

-As of now, I'm pretty much free on most days, though that will change next month. I'd note down Friday and Saturday as my free days for now.
-Time wise, I'd be free from about 1 or 2 PM EST to about 10 PM EST
-I do have plenty of experience with tabletop in general, mostly rl meet-ups, but some online stuff as well
-Yup
-Ehhhhh...yes, I can^^

What days are you free, normally? My schedule changes week by week thanks to work, unfortunately. However, I my schedule three weeks in advance, so I can plan ahead.
What times are you free on those days, normally? Please use EST. As above, no hard and fast availability. However, I'm not available before 12 P.M. EST Monday-Thursday, or after 1 A.M. EST on those same days due to my class.
What's your experience with tabletop RPGs in general? Played a few, ran a few. I'm most familiar with the Fate, d20, and Fantasy Core style systems, but to be honest my focus as a player tends to be more on the "role-playing" rather than the "game" part of things, so most of my focus tends to be on the universe on the story and making interesting and/or terrible things happen rather than mechanical/rule theorycrafting and system doesn't matter a whole lot compared to flavor for me.
Can you use Discord? Mmmhm!
Can you tolerate a nerd who really likes robots as your GM?

It was difficult to nail down exactly when the anger started. Remembering a time when it wasn't there, coiled up and waiting to strike or alive and thrashing, was growing more and more challenging. It'd been with her for so long that it no longer felt like an intruder in her mind. It felt like a part of her.

What days are you free, normally? Most days. I don't do much nowadays.
What times are you free on those days, normally? Please use EST. Probably same timeframe as Rorick works best for me, 1-10 PM EST or so.
What's your experience with tabletop RPGs in general? I've played Shadowrun, DnD 3.5, Dark Heresy, and a couple of smallish homebrews made by friends. Usually one off sessions. I ran a few one shot sessions, but I'm mostly a player. I like RPing over number crunching but I do both equally well. Stats can be fun.

Totally up for this. The setting looks really cool.

What's your experience with tabletop RPGs in general? I've played lots of DnD (3.5 ,4 and 5e), a little CthulhuTech and AdEva as well as several rules-lite systems. I've run a campaign in 5e before, but that was a published adventure.
Can you use Discord? I'm parked there all the time anyway so that's a thing.
Can you tolerate a nerd who really likes robots as your GM? Is there another kind of GM?
