Eclipse Phase by Sinatrapod

Earth was always doomed to die. Between the billions of us, our petty concerns, our ancient feuds and our reluctance to change, she didn’t stand a chance. We can only be thankful that when the end came for the old girl, it was swift. Now she drifts in silent testimony of the price paid by the static fools who refuse to change: annihilation. There are always those who would cling to yesterday - now they have nothing to cling to.

Now transhumanity lives by change; we change our bodies, our minds, our jobs and our ways of life at speeds that would panic our ancestors. Hell, our ancestors wouldn’t even be able to recognize us as humans some of the time. We’ve banished famine, disease, old age and the shackles of wealth (well, some of us). After ten years of mourning Mother Earth, humanity collectively reaches beyond to grip the destinies that will call us further on, to new homes and new ways and an endlessly expanding vista of tomorrow.

That’s what you’d probably think if you were just another private citizen, held in the warm arms of a Hypercorp patron and awash in the soporific sea of XPs, sims and media designed to keep you blind. You’re in Firewall, and you know better. With Earth’s demise there is a relative handful of humans left alive, without the comfort and safety of our ignorance or a proper atmosphere. The galaxy is cold, unspeakably vast and unmistakably unwelcoming. You and your compatriots may be the only things which can give transhumanity a future - or hell, their next breath.
