Eclipse – The Dabbler

Sun 27 August 2017 by Thoth from Emergence Campaign Weblog

Since Christopher West’s site is still among the missing – he may have a new one, but, if so, either he hasn’t put his Eclipse builds on it or them or Google hasn’t found them – so here’s another one, albeit as adapted for my notions and updated since 2012. The Dabbler isn’t a blaster, […]


Champions – Junior Lt. Ulrich “Firestorm” Grant

Wed 23 August 2017 by Thoth from Emergence Campaign Weblog

Junior Lt. Grant is a bit of an odd case; he’s very talented with personal boosting “C’hi Powers”, deadly accurate, as fast as greased lightning, able to manage a flight harness, and can handle a more-than-maximum equipment loadout – but he’s got a woeful tendency to follow his ...

Apex – The Playable Races Part I; The Hominidae

Mon 07 August 2017 by Thoth from Emergence Campaign Weblog

Apex is an experimental setting focused on exploring very different types of intelligence – races which simply do not think like humans do. That’s somewhat awkward – it’s hard to properly play characters who don’t think like you do – but it seems worth considering. The game is set up ...
