I'm tempted to go the Hyperelite route but I'm a little worried about buying dead-tree versions that might get outdated.  Has their been any major errata changes lately or has it sort of settled?

AFAIK The only major change has been the core book. If you're really curious, look at the errata for Sunward et all to see what mistakes they've made.

Also Hyperelite background was not really all that changed from what I can think of off the top of my head

So Ross are you going to interview any of the Posthuman guys as they have a kickstarter up?

so that explains why every game session of mine only lasted 3.14 sessions before the sun went nova...hopefully they fixed that bug

The core book is what I meant!  Sorry, I should've been more clear about that. :D  I know there were significant changes (initiative and the d100 system among others) just from listening to the APs so my concern is getting 4 copies of the core book to pass around to my group and then getting another big mechanics change errata'd in.

After thinking about it some more this afternoon, I'm gonna do it anyways because the best way to convince my group to play a game is to put a book in their hands and let them absorb the material through osmosis.  ;D

the current printing of the core book has the proper rules. Only the first printing first edition has the wrong rules.

Some folks over on the Something Awful forums have started doing an AP of Eclipse Phase. More importantly, as of episode 4, they are playing a variant of Know Evil, and there have been a couple of sly cameos of the RPPR crew's characters as things have progressed.

Alright, what was once just a pitch has now come to pass. Maybe.

At $80K, Posthuman Studios will hire me to write a stand alone scenario that could also serve as a prequel for a group looking to start Know Evil.

In addition to being...well, just pretty darn swell for me, the success of this stretch goal would be a good sign that much lengthier publications (wink wink nudge nudge) might be in order.

There are 6 days left to pledge. Any an all support would be appreciated.
