Though most claim the Fall was carefully orchestrated by the out-of-control [=TITANs=], others whisper that the driving powers behind the warsóboth AI and transhumanówere infected by a mutating virus with multiple infection vectorsóbiological, information, nanoódubbed the Exsurgent virus. Whatever its source, this virus has been known to sometimes transform its victims into something unexplainable... something monstrous and reality-altering. Whatever the truth, the remnants of the [=TITANs=] and this virus were left to the desolated ruins or driven to the edges of the system, where they remain hidden away in dark corners, quietly waiting to infect the minds of the scavengers and explorers who find them....

** A number of TITAN-manufactured TITAN-manufactured, head-sized drones called Headhunters are specifically programmed to harvest the heads and cortical stacks of any humans they find, allowing find and return them to do whatever they wish with the nearest TITAN-controlled uploading center. Nobody knows what happens to the egos stored therein.therein, but it being the [=TITANs=], it can't be good.



** Nobody knows what happens to victims of Headhunters, head-sized drones that literally rip your head off and take it to the nearest TITAN-controlled uploading center, but it being the Titans, it can't be good.

** Ultimates, who are commonly stereotyped as elitist {{Social Darwinist}} mercenaries, were announced to be cut from the primary list of suggested player factions in the Second Edition, as the devs came to see them as a fascist faction and thought that it sent the wrong message to explicitly suggest playing them.

** Ultimates, In the Second Edition, the development team announced they were removing the Ultimates - who are commonly stereotyped as elitist {{Social Darwinist}} mercenaries, were announced to be cut mercenaries - from the primary list of suggested player factions in factions. Between publishing the Second Edition, as first and second edition core rulebooks, the devs came to see them as a fascist faction and thought that it sent the wrong message to explicitly suggest faction. As a consequence, playing them.as Ultimates is likely to require some homebrew. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment This is controversial within the fan community, so let's leave it at that.]]

In the aftermath of the Fall, transhumanity lives on, divided into a patchwork of hypercorp combines, survivalist stations, transhuman faction species, and city-state habitats. Under the oppressive police states of immortal inner-system oligarchies, advanced technologies remain highly restricted, and refugee infomorphs are held in virtual slavery or re-sleeved in robotic bodies and forced into indentured labor. In the outer system, rebel transhuman scientists and techno-anarchists struggle to maintain a new society-from each according to their imagination and to each according to their need. And on the fringes and in the niches lurk, networked tribes of political extremists, religious fanatics, criminal entrepreneurs, and bizarre posthumans, among other, stranger, and more alien things...
