Awesome thanks for the info. Just one last question for now  :). If a character has a max aptitude of 30 and the player spends the cp to make it 30 plus has a +5 bonus to that aptitude. Does it go to 35? I don't think it does but I figured i'd double check

No. Maximum is literally maximum. Egos max out at 30 but some morphs have different limits.

There is an ego trait that raises it but that's it I think.

If someone wants a higher score than they could just sleeve into a morph with a higher maximum rating, like a Reaper, and ensure their bonuses took them to the max.

The point is your stuck at the maximum for your character regardless of bonuses and that's ultimately determined by the maximum of your morph.

Heads up. New Eclipse Phase book coming out. Rimward. Here's what it covers.

Details the outer regions of the solar system, from the Main Belt to the Kuiper Belt and everything in between. Habitats and plot seeds are provided for each of the inner worlds and the factions that occupy them. Provides background and information on the Jovian Republic, the militaristic bioconservatives who maintain a steely grip on Jupiterís gravity well. Explores the factions, reputation system dynamics, and organizational methods of the Autonomist Alliance and its member habitats, from the technosocialist enclave of Titan to the anarchist stronghold of Locus.

Also release date is February.

Hurray! Good to know progress is being made. I can't wait to get access to a full write up on new economy designs, especially the Commonwealth's mirco-corp system.

Foundthis on the EP forum; its a glossary of actual intelligence terms as explained by the people who stole the emails using them, WikiLeaks.

So much win for Eclipse Phase or Delta Green games.

Doh! You went to Wikileaks. Now you're all on the terror watch list. Hello overly protective and soon to be zealotic big brother! I love you!
It's too late to be clever. I'll try being adventurous.

I was already on the Delta Green email list. If talking about terrorism, conducting illegal espionage operations in the US, human sacrifice and Nazis didn't get me on a list somewhere, I don't know what would.

I bet being part of a terrorist cell conspiring against the US government helps with immersion in a Delta Green game.

Think terrorists play D&D or would they actually be interested in transhumanism, like Eclipse Phase... suppose it depends on the terrorist.
