RPPR Illustrated: Eclipse Phase – Know Evil – Earth Tier

Earth tier! A strange and twisty journey finally draws to a close to our first Eclipse Phase campaign.

From  the bottom left, we proceed from the party’s dramatic escape from the  close confines of Hotel California; Rogue AGI Augustine taking control  of a crowd of synthmorphs to draw the fire of a distant sniper on Vo  Nyugen; The agents get forked and sent on a doomed mission to the  haunting ruins of Tokyo; they witness the final stroke of the  conspiracy’s plans in the petrified forests of the Ozark mountains: The  final battle with Manjappa’s pet Titans in the Martian desert; and their  final point of departure- Warden’s SimulSpace watering-hole at the edge  of existence.

Looming over the journey we have (Bottom right) Q, the group’s newest addition, having just swapped his eye for wisdom plastic explosives and Manjappa’s synthetic assassin, Kill-E, smuggled  in the prosthetic railgun-arms of a colleague, and (top right) a very  special cylinder that caused a great many problems, and the shadowy  super-spook Manjappa, who, in the end, turned out to just be…some guy.

Your support of RPPR made this possible, both the artwork and the campaign itself! This year, I do plan to start a campaign of Delta Green using Impossible Landscapes but I have to finish reading before I start.

RPPR Illustrated: Eclipse Phase – Know Evil – Scum Swarm

The third tier of our first Eclipse Phase campaign has the Know Evil team visiting a scum swarm. From our artist Patsy:

“Here we have the Swarm orbiting high over earth, with highlights on, left to right:

Faiyun  (am I finally spelling that right?) fresh from the rejuvenation vat,  rescues a resleeved SAIROC’s ballet performance; graffiti relating to  the mysterious narrative entity Akaja; emotionally unstable  psychosurgeon DOCTOR MINDFUCK, Magda of the BOYTOY salvage cooperative,  resleeved for battle but still looking fabulous; Faiyun and Bartleby  enjoying their new bodies modelled on their favourite anime characters;  Maxwell, forced to shoot his own Mesh-Insert out of his neck and the  salvage operation goes terribly wrong; Gerard and Maxwell indulging  their cowboy fantasies as members of the swarm militia; The  centipede-oid leader of the rival DEVIL’S REJECTS salvage company; and  Preston, rocking the fashion world by announcing his break from his  employers while wearing a fabricated human-skin suit.”

RPPR Illustrated: Eclipse Phase – Know Evil- Luna Tier

We continue on our Know Evil journey by exploring Luna! From the artist Patsy:

“The group’s madcap adventures as interplanetary  gonzo journalists for RELEASE THE KRAKEN are sadly interrupted both by  the machinations of the Proxies, their Firewall masters, and by the  mind-shredding horror of the Exsurgent threats they’re theoretically  meant to be pursuing.

I’ve also included a more visible WIP version of the Release The Kraken frontpage, in case anyone’s curious.”

Thank you for supporting the RPPR Patreon! Our After Hours episode will be out soon!

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.

RPPR Illustrated: Night’s Black Agents – Tribes of Tokyo

Patsy has depicted our vampire-slaying hijinks for this month’s illustration.

“Here in their secret hideout/boat cabin, surrounded by trophies,  research materials and assorted gangster supplies, the ‘Ronin’ are  combining their skills to hatch another incredibly ambitious and  over-complicated heist plan.

From left- Shinji the  ascended-fanboy hacker, Ito the soft-spoken former Yakuza, Haru the  iron-willed mastermind, Kazuo the Reverb-addicted forger, and Shiro the  ex-CIA badass.

Many thanks owed, of course, to Crazon/@reviewcultist for the original character designs.”

RPPR Illustrated: The Heroes of New Arcadia

Patsy has immortalized our Wild Talents campaign, the Heroes of New Arcadia:

“Young summoner The Martyr, with the ever-helpful Balgron; the  totally-legit superhero Zero-Shift, bamfing in just in the nick of time  as ever; The deadly robot assassin R.A.M., otherwise known as the  distressed man-in-a-can Ho-Bot, the homeless robot; Deceased  super-scientist Phantom Mech, flawlessly disguised in a fedora and  trenchcoat; Median, the construction worker cursed with alien robot  hands, struggling to use his cell phone; and Chirop the man-bat,  enjoying a latte while swinging his favoured weapon, the  air-conditioning unit. Will they prevail against a shadowy conspiracy of  gangsters, super-soldiers, evil Scandinavians,and forces darker still?”

Thank you for supporting RPPR! We have a lot of great episodes for you in August and we are still streaming weird videos every week on our Discord. Come by and check them out.

RPPR Illustrated: Delta Green – God’s Teeth

Patsy has brought our most popular Delta Green campaign to life in this stunning image!

To  be specific, agents, from left: ex-cartel enforcer Klaus Jimenez;  Astrophysicist Neil Shell, just before getting crushed by the abyssal  sea; Agent Alex Moore; Agent Arthur Provost; Doctor Kamarov; Agent  Domnhall Kellogg (with Aidan making an appearance alongside), Dr. Lydia  Cantrell, Prof. Herbert Winkel, and Agent Alan Harper.

Below,  we have, top row: A very ominous white poodle; Sorcerous drug  entrepreneuse Chi Binh; The monstrous Russian cultist known only as  ‘Grandma and her colleagues, attended by adorable household pets; and  the burnt ‘Hello Kitty’ binder that started it all (She’s a cat! Like  Bast! I finally get it!).

Bottom row: A very  upset black bear; Conradin’s cult of alligator-humanoids; Nyarlathotep,  in his guise as an overly-touchy motocross rider; the nameless predator,  who hunts even the Gods themselves; The King in Yellow, with his  personal phone app; and Claramonda, the friendly neighbour who may or  may not actually be a giant spider.
