Sandbox NPCs for Eclipse Phase

In reading through the amazing Dracula Dossier, I’m most impressed by the sheer customizability inherent in the book. Pelgrane Press has done an awesome job in creating a book format that allows for quick and comprehensive GM response to player actions and expectations.

The understanding of the system and the innovation of the rules were awesome and now Chris has repeated this accomplishment with Ultramodern5.
