Eclipse Phase - Uncharted
Amber Jin Feng
Lord John Warfin was right.
Important information comes to light (Custom Move, for: Avian Scavenger)
-An alien wilderness is traversed- (Gatecrasher, for: Survival – 5xp)
-Prejudice rears its ugly head- (Mercurial, for: Impossible Reflexes – 3xp)
You never need to roll the Take Trauma move as a result of voluntary resleeving. Resleeving after death, or being restored from backup requires the Take Trauma move as normal.
When leading an expedition into the unknown, Roll+Intuition.
On a 10+, choose 1.
On a 7-9, the GM will choose 1.
- something potentially profitable
- something currently useful
- something uniquely awesome
Descendant of Dinosaurs:
When stalking prey, either literally or metaphorically, you have Advantage
You can move in ways most transhumans find impossible. You may Take Damage using Coordination instead of Armor.
When you make an Assessment of any aspect of a wilderness (animals, plants, weather, terrain, hazards, etc) you gain 3 Data Points about that subject on a 10+, and 1 Data Point about that subject on a 7-9.
You can scrounge up the following from all but the most barren, inhospitable surroundings:
- Somewhat edible food and drink
- Basic medicine or first-aid materials
- Rustic Wilderness Kit
- Primitive Class 0 melee weapon
Opteryx: (Class 2 Synthmorph)
This recon morph is designed to be a fast, lightweight runner, climber, and ﬂyer. The opteryx looks like a one-meter-tall winged, synthetic dinosaur and adopts an almost horizontal body posture when running, its tail held out for balance. Its wings are fully functional arms equipped with claws. This morph is a favorite for gatecrashers and neo-avians in the dinosaur identity subculture. It comes equipped with cartography package software.

Neo-Avian Morph: (Class 1 biomorph)
Neo-avians include ravens, crows, and gray parrots uplifted to human-level intelligence. Their physical sizes are much larger than their non-uplifted cousins (to the size of a human child), with larger heads for their increased brain size. Numerous transgenic modifications have been made to their wings, allowing them to retain limited flight capabilities at 1 g, but giving them a more bat-like physiology so they can bend and fold better and adding primitive digits for basic tool manipulation. Their toes are also more articulated and now accompanied with an opposable thumb. Neo-avians have adapted well to microgravity environments, and are favored for their small size and reduced resource use.

Mercurials Rep (Class 1)
Reputation among proponents of species autonomy, uplift rights, and AGI rights.
Amber was an indenture on Earth during the Fall. She escaped because, Bill Fletcher, one of the human engineers who was tasked handling with last minute evacuations, gave a fuck about his uplifted coworkers. Amber isn’t sure how she would up sleeved into a new neo-avian morph, but she woke up a few months later, outbound to Neptune, on a ship crewed almost entirely by Mercurials of one sort or another. She learned how to be her own person on Mahogany; that person turned out to be awfully prickly.
She learned that no one cares much if a gatecrasher is a bit of a bitch, as long as they get results. She’s good at that part.
With Kvasir – generally positive interaction when I was working out of the Pandora Gate in the Titanian Commonwealth.
- Once when Kvasir was sleeved into a biomorph, he started seeing things that were symbolically there, but not real — the things he said were, in retrospect, actually meaningful – From the gate to Moria – while exploring, we found an alien device, and brought it back through – and the device activated and showed Kvasir “visions” that were revealed to be actual places later on, when other groups of gatecrashers came back with pictures of places they’d been.
