From publisher blurb:
This, Progress Report for SLA Industries, is a 24-page PDF brought to you by the Nightfall team while we endure yet another COVID-induced lockdown. This document also features a guest writer: Mr. Bart Wynants, who has joined our rules team on The Terminator RPG project. Check out the QuickStart for that here on DriveThruRPG.
Continuing with the Randomisation Tables we shared in the second Progress Report, Dave has created a couple more. One for the Cannibal Sectors and one for your BPNs.
Next up we have the second chapter of the BPN cookbook which, similar to the mini-campaign seeds, gives the GM a spark of an idea to build on. There are six recipes (missions) this time, mainly written by Dave Allsop, but with one from Mark Rapson. Scavs, Stormers, and new SAC missions all feature. All ideas which can be the basis of either a one shot or something that can be woven into your ongoing campaign.
Many people have noticed the demise of the Vevaphons, their removal from the game was quite simply driven by the fact that they did not add much to the PC options not already covered by the other species. Back in 2019, Mark and Shep delved into their demise with some detail and enthusiasm, a very small part of that writing made it into the 2nd Edition core rulebook, but we know many would like a more in-depth explanation. Linked to that, Mark has also written a mini-campaign which will allow a GM to create a 5 to 10 session story arc. As with many things SLA, the opportunity for death and destruction is high, but with that also melancholy and sadness, as we close the book on the Vevs forever.
Similar to the more in-depth story of the Vevs, included next is a detailed description of The Pit. The explanation includes a more structural description which will help players visualise the place better.
This issue also features a short story entitled Incense and Cordite by Bart Wynants. Mark and Bart have been in close discussions while working on the forthcoming The Terminator RPG and that led to Bart putting pen to paper.
Jared has started the Rogue’s Gallery with some great NPCs to add to your game. These characters are a quick win for the GM, giving them pre-made and designed characters to help or hinder their players. He has also given you a campaign beginning that abandons the characters in the heart of Cannibal Sector 1. Oh, and a noodle bar. Everyone needs a noodle bar.
Finally, we have included the Quick Reference sheet found in the GM Pack, which can be printed out ready for your next session.Enjoy!
