RPPR Illustrated: Eclipse Phase – Know Evil – Venus Tier

Know Evil was such a long and complex campaign that no one image could include all of it. Instead, we’re going with an illustration for each of the tiers, starting with Venus! We also have some of the images as close-ups.

Clockwise from top, we have the Venusian pirates’ aerostats burning as  our heroes make their escape; S.A.I.R.O.C., the multi-ton spider-tank  with lots of love to give; The Claudias, a single ego powering a  multi-bodied crime syndicate; SAIROC earnestly befriending Augustine,  the devout but fantastically powerful AI; Faye-Yin freerunning her way  across the rooftops; Preston cleaning up at the mahjong table; Preston  Crowley, octomorph reality show star and swashbuckling swordmaster; The  mysterious Dr. Stefansson  in a child morph, commanding a fearsome  spherical warbot; Bartleby’s muse, the menacing March Hare; Bartleby,  traumatised psycho-surgeon and gunslinger; Faye-Yin sliding under SAIROC  amidst a fierce gunfight; Gerard’s brutal victory in the fighting pits  over his octomorph foe; Bartleby instigating a mass murder-suicide to  escape a virtual-reality hellscape; Faye-Yin Kirkpatrick, light-footed  legitimate businesswoman; Preston in a hermaphroditic pleasure-morph,  wreaking havoc with twin swords; Preston’s muse, the alluring Fhtagn;  Gerard, the bioconservative man-mountain gladiator; and the desiccated  remains of an unlucky worker on the THOUGHT station.

After Hours: Left Behind and d20 Modern Rapture The Second Coming

I recently found a copy of Rapture: The Second Coming, a d20 modern setting book and realized we had to talk about it here. But in order to understand this…unique setting, some of the RPPR cast (Caleb, Aaron, and Birk) and I watched the Left Behind movies. What is the Rapture? You can learn the theological background to this belief system with a 2 hour documentary on Youtube from Renegade Cuts or you can just listen to us dig through a weird book made in the height of the d20 shovelware era.
