2d20 Eclipse Phase

So in 2017, while waiting for the Infinity book I ran a 2-session game of Eclipse phase (continuity – a starter adventure) using 2d20. Most of it was scribbled on paper but I’ve managed to find some of the notes so I can write them up.

This is a pretty barebones hack, but it worked for us. And it was mostly using Infinity to run the EP world, rather than converting EP.

Attributes.

Funnily enough attributes matched up pretty well – 7 for 7.

  • Agility for REF
  • Awareness for INT
  • Brawn for SOM
  • Coordination for COO
  • Intellect for COG
  • Personality for SAV
  • Willpower for WIL

We made the characters using a point buy system (see 2d20 base article) and then altered based on the morphs.

I actually wrote a conversion sheet for a number of standard morphs giving the base bonuses and then starting player life points, or starting costs. But in the end we did a random deal of morph cards and we went with a simple +5% is +1 in 2d20, +10% is +2 and so on. We then converted mods as made sense.

Combat stats

I found some equivalents for weapons

  • Medium kinetic pistol = standard pistol
  • Flex cutter = Knife

That enabled me to roughly convert dice. I used the following conversion for weapons by looking at %s of normal health pools

  • 1d10 + 3/4 ~ 1+3cd
  • 2d10 + 2 ~ 2+3cd
  • eclipse phase AP1 = 2d20 0AP
  • AP2 = 1AP
  • AP3,4 = 2AP

So for the Chrysacid attacks I went with Limb and spurs do 1+3cd AP2

For the armour again I used rough equivalents

  • Light Vacsuit 5/5 gives armour 1
  • Standard vacsuit 7/7 gives armour 1/2torso

  1. […] really well. That was before 2e, but I think I’d still use 2d20 for a more cinematic game. My Write-up is here, here and […]
