Mobile-Friendly Compendium for Eclipse Phase
Eclipse Phase is a cool (if crunchy) tabletop RPG that mashes up post-singularity science fiction, survival horror, and enthusiastic transhumanism. The folks at Posthuman Studios have released it under a generous Creative Commons license that allows the community to expand, remix, and experiment with even the "canon" materials in the books. To that end, I've built a giant online compendium of every skill, power, character trait, creature, piece of gear, weapon, location, faction, NPC, and pregen character in all of Eclipse Phase's published books. Nerrrrrrrrrrrd.

This is amazing, thanks! EP is an incredible world but a diabolical system. I ran a campaign and replaced all the mechanics with the sci-fi version of Rolemaster, and made it five times easier and more fun. Rolemaster.

Sebmojo, agreed. Believe it or not, EP was the first tabletop game I ever ran (or played for more than a session or two). I didn't realize how tricky/crunchy it could be (especially in the early stages) until picking up D&D5e a few years later.

The almost-Kickstarted 2nd Edition rules for Eclipse Phase are pretty promising in terms of simplifying the heavy math bits — no skill recalculations on sleeving, smaller (saner) skill list, and so on. I'm crossing my fingers! (And preparing to roll out a new version of eldrich host to account for the new rules…)
