The Homeworld

The Third Wave was information. The Fourth Wave was biotech. The Fifth Wave is a combination of nanotechnology, memetics, and artifical intelligence, and it's changing mankind more than the first four Waves put together. Transhuman Space: Fifth Wave is an overview of our home planet at the end of the 21st century. Most humans (and other sapient life) still live on Earth, doing business, raising families, and fighting wars just as they have always done. Humanity and its partners may be scattering into deep space, but Earth is still the center of the human universe . . . crowded, busy, fast-moving and still picking up speed.

  • Nation-by-nation overview of Earth.
  • In-depth coverage of the hyper-advanced Fifth Wave societies.
  • Close-in descriptions of three of Earth's massive virtuality nodes.
  • Rules for network intrusion and defense.
  • Land, sea, and air vehicles of interest to adventurers.

Welcome home. It's different here.

Transhuman Space is required to use this book in a GURPS campaign. GURPS Space and Bio-Tech may also be useful. The ideas and maps in Fifth Wave can be used with any roleplaying system.
