    Another urban fantasy RPG is Witchcraft, by Eden Studios. I think the core book is available as a free download.

      I will fight this idea with every bit of blood in my veins.

      I will also recommend a glance at All Flesh Must Be Eaten. It's got a very specific focus but 'tis better to do one thing well than a dozen poorly, y'know? It was one of the first games I've gotten to see that says outright that, unless you use special cinematic rules, healing from injuries is a process that takes weeks, months, or years, and isn't soothed by just having someone slap a bandage on it.

        I've always loved UA, but finding out that 3e is renaming the Mystic Hermaphrodite to the Sexual Rebis and that a transwoman fan of the game got to be the model for its art sold me even further.

        I love EP! I'm glad to here you like it too, it's a really great game (okay, the non-FATE rules can be a bit clunky, but I'm mostly a setting person anyway). I'll admit that the focus on mind uploading was a bit of turn off (I'm considering getting a giant back tattoo that says "CONSCIOUSNESS CANNOT BE UPLOADED"), but it's fairly easy to work around. Just say that an Ego Bridge physically moves part of the brain, and a cortical stack contains a piece of brain matter that acts as a substrate for the consciousness. That taken into account, the rest of the setting is fantastic.

        I would totally love a "Before the Fall" sourcebook, though. Mostly because I could use it to run a Metal Gear Solid game.
        Whatever, nerd. Enjoy fifteen copies of me clogging up your junk folder.

        My main beef with EP is the writers' political bias sneaking in to the point of absurdity; anarchism always works and leads to perfect socialist utopias while any hierarchy is either capitalist slavery hell or fascist Starship Troopers with a dash of paper-thin Catholicism over it. But beyond that, it's an amazing game.

        Female pronouns for me, please.

          I am interested about the rules of madness and mental health from Unkown Armies, but about its background and factions aren't enough interesting for me.

            You're the first and only person I've ever seen describe UA as boring.

            But if you really hated the old factions (I thought they were delightful), all of them are heavily changed in the new edition (the Sect of the Naked Goddess is on the brink of a three-way schism, the Mak Attaxers have split along brand lines, the New Inquisition has shattered and gone underground, and the Sleepers have completely reinvented themselves) and share the text with several new groups.

              and 3e is in production now, right?

                This is, incidentally, why EP is the only setting I've spent as much time rewriting as I have anything from White Wolf/OPP.

                Seriously, anyone who cannot sufficiently suppress their bias beyond the point where they have a devout supporter of a regime call suicide-bombing terrorists trying to tear it down "freedom fighters" probably shouldn't be doing political writing.

                I should probably stop posting about this before it diverts too far from the thread topic but EP really is my bag.

                  Had a successful Kickstarter with the furst drafts available to backers a few months back.
