Outer System Morph Variants

Many morphs from the inner system and exoplanets are used in outer system environments, often tailored with modifications specific to the locale.


Biomorphs With Cyberbrains


The cultures of the outer system are far more accepting of forking and regular resleeving. For this reason, many biomorphs in the outer system are equipped with cyberbrains rather than organic brains by default. This makes the resleeving process quicker (less than a minute as opposed to an hour) and makes it substantially easier to fork. The drawback is that cyberbrains are vulnerable to hacking (p. 261, EP). Biomorphs with this option have Access Jacks, Cyberbrain, Mnemonic Augmentation, and an optional Puppet Sock.
Increase CP Cost by 5; Credit Cost remains the same.


Cerean Variants


Biomorphs on Ceres must be capable of handling the ammonia content in the water in addition to the pressure.

Cerean Aquanaut: As the aquanaut biomorph (p. 150, Gatecrashing), but equipped with hydrostatic pressure adaption.
CP and Credit Costs remain the same.
Cerean Neo-Cetaceans: Neo-cetaceans modified for survival on Ceres also have gills, hydrostatic pressure adaption, temperature tolerance (improved cold), and toxin filters.
Increase CP Cost by 10; Credit Cost remains the same.
Cerean Octomorph: Favored by the Hidden Concern, Cerean octomorphs are equipped with eelware, hydrostatic pressure adaption, temperature tolerance (improved cold), and toxin filters.
Increase CP Cost by 10; Credit Cost remains the same.


Europan Variants


Various biomorphs have been adapted to survive in the intense pressures and deep cold of the subsurface Europan waters.

Europan Aquanaut: As the aquanaut biomorph, but equipped with hydrostatic pressure adaption.
CP and Credit Costs remain the same.
Europan Uplifts: Neo-cetaceans and neo-octopi are natural fits for the Europan environment. Any of these morphs (including the takko) can be modified for survival on Europa, adding hydrostatic pressure adaption and temperature tolerance (improved cold).
Increase CP Cost by 5; Credit Cost remains the same.
Europan Orca: The greatest success to date is the Europan orca, a cetacean uplift that upgrades the neo-orca with carapace armor, eelware, enhanced vision, hydrostatic pressure adaption and temperature tolerance (improved cold).
Increase CP Cost by 10; Credit Cost remains the same. These are especially useful as undersea guards or mercenaries.


Outer System Synthmorphs


Given that social attitudes toward cases and synths (and similar low-end shells) are not as prejudiced in autonomist and some other outer system cultures, synthmorphs operating Rimward may find the Stigma: Clanking Masses negative trait replaced with the Uncanny Valley negative trait instead.


Titanian Variants


Commonly encountered morphs on Titan include:

Titanian Fliers: Lunar fliers augmented with temperature tolerance (improved cold).
CP and Credit Costs remain the same.
Titanian Olympians: Often used by athletes and outdoor workers, these are standard olympian biomorphs augmented with temperature tolerance (improved cold).
CP and Credit Costs remain the same.
