No. Quantum Farcasters are just two computers entangled with each other to facilitate a transfer of a persona from Computer A to Computer B. You cannot use it for anything else. Quantum anything will only work between the two things that are entangled. You can't switch it to something else. In fact, you can't even use a quantum farcaster to communicate with anything OTHER than the one single quantum farcaster it is entangled with. Not even other farcasters. "A quantum farcaster may not be used to securely communicate with any farcasters other than the ones it is entangled with."

Great question. This really does cause mix-ups in every game. TLDR: Yes, but you would need to purchase a farcaster for every device on the Tacnet and synchronize them while physically together. **Farcasters:** Linked *keys* that effectively create a continuous [OTP encryption](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One-time_pad) between two devices. These devices still need a separate medium to allow communication (radio, neutrino, mesh, etc) that could still be blocked/jammed, but not decrypted. The amount of data that can be transmitted is not limited (they do not run out). Additional devices can synchronized, but only if all devices are physically together at the same time. i.e. if you are on Mars and want to add a third device to your Mars-Luna farcaster channel, you have to ship the Luna device back to Mars first before all three can communicate. **QE Comm:** These qubits create instantaneous communication between two devices regardless of distance (e.g. gatecrashing) or signal loss (diving in Europa). They need no other communication medium. They do use up qubits in the process and eventually run out (fairly clear in the books).

>A quantum farcaster is an emergency device inside someone's body that sends their mind state (it kills them and blows their head off doing it irrc) This is incorrect, what you are referring to is an emergency farcaster. A quantum farcaster is just a regular farcaster. Edit: Please don’t downvote me when I am [clearly correct](https://eclipsephaserules.fandom.com/wiki/Emergency_Farcaster).

They said quantum farcaster not emergency farcaster, and you had the chance to refer to it as an emergency farcaster and did not. There is only one term that is correct no matter what you say. >I also always assume anything that can blast neutrinos in all directions with enough coherency to transmit a mind state isn't portable lol. This is also incorrect, the emergency farcaster is portable and uses antimatter to produce the neutrino burst which is why it cooks you. Regular farcasters broadcast via regular radio transmissions not neutrino bursts and are only protected by quantum entanglement.
