Whether you're running Eclipse Phase for the first time or a veteran gamemaster, Router Case Files is your resource for fast plot hooks tailored to this intricate universe. Covering the three core campaign types—Firewall, gatecrashing, and Guanxi criminals—then spanning the solar system to deal with hypercorps, uplifts, media, politics, and more!

Router Case Files is 24 pages and will be available in print as part of the Eclipse Phase Second Edition Gamemaster's Screen.

Router Case Files does not contain any game mechanics and can be used with any edition of Eclipse Phase.

How to Use this Book

The following pages provide a selection of plot hooks for gamemasters (GMs) to run with. These ideas are short and provide the bare-bones outline for a scenario. Some provide specific details, like the names of hypercorps and non-player characters (NPCs), or a recommended setting (i.e., Elysium on Mars), while others are more generic, leaving those details to be filled in. We often include several possibilities for the GM to choose from, to best fit your campaign and keep the players on their toes in case they read this too! Most of these hooks are meant to be run over the course of a session or three, but they could certainly be stretched out for more sessions if needed.

We’ve organized these plot hooks into rough categories; each two-page spread covering a different topic. The first three focus on specific campaign types: Firewall, gatecrashing, or Guanxi criminals. The next two spreads cover the inner and outer halves of the Solar System, respectively. The remaining spreads relate to different focus areas: hypercorps, mercurials, the mesh and media, politics, transhumanity, and weirder things.

On top of that, we list a set of keyword tags with each hook that indicate what other topics, groups, and places that scenario idea might relate to. This provides an easy way of scanning them for specific subjects. Need an adventure idea that involves Venus, forking, or exsurgents? Scan the tags to see which ones might work. We’ve included an index of the tags at the very back, so you can see a full list of the hooks for each subject.

As always, any given details can and should be changed by the GM as you see fit. Take these ideas and run with them!

So wait, does this include the GM screen PDF or is there somewhere to get the screen PDF?

The GM Screen PDF will be a distinct title on DriveThruRPG — it's one of the projects we're currently working on! :D

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
