Description: "Karma displays its power and might upon the World of Progress with the release of its annual supplement. During the celebrations of 900 SD, Karma unveils the secrets and products of its advancements, the technology to achieve Life After Death, to manipulate, advance and configure the anatomy, to create new life in the form of the Chagrrin and the Xeno - two new variants on the Stormer Race - and the Vevaphon - biogenetic polymorphic operatives that have taken the media by storm. Karma also details the heart of Stormer products, the planet Artery and the institution that funds it - Phantom Pregnancy - and the introduction of a controversial squad that binds the two rivals Dark Lament and Karma: Media Darlings Symbiote. Karma presents an image of glamour, innovation and productivity; it entices the operative society and feeds its needs. But even in the fast paced World of Progress, replication has its price... SLA Industries is renowned for its stylish and lavishly illustrated books, and Karma is no exception. Presented in a catalogue style from one of SLA Industries' most powerful divisions, this sourcebook presents a huge range of new options, equipment and background for the game."

SLA MAIN RULESBOOK 1.1

Published: 2000

Writers: Dave Allsop, Jared Earle, Morton T. Smith, Anne Boylan, Tim Dedopulos

Artists: Dave Allsop, Stuart P. Beel, Brian Dugan, James Worrall, Adrian Smith, Pol Sigerson, Steve Luke, Clint Langley

Cover Art: Glenn Fabry

Description: "SLA Industries is designed to support many different styles of play. As an Operative, a lot of options are open to you:

Horror. Although you’re skilled and well-equipped, you’ll be isolated and often outclassed on - and below - the streets. Monsters, maniacs and monitors can all take down an entire squad without blinking, and evil has a master-plan... Unexplained supernatural menaces, hideous abominations, unseen stalkers and horribly tortured civilians will test your nerves to breaking point.

Action. Sometimes, your enemies will actually present a clear target. You might find your squad running sweep-n-clean in a hostage situation, in a frantic sewers battle with a pack of carriens, shooting it out with DarkNight, or going hand-to-hand with a serial killer. Either way, it’ll be fast and deadly.

Revelation. SLA Industries is not particularly benevolent, and many of the things you’re instructed to do will feed your taste for power, but sap your soul - evicting the elderly out onto the streets so a housing block can become a casino, for example. In time, you may come to doubt. The Truth hidden by SLA Industries could bring the company down forever... but at what bitter cost? Where will you go to learn about White Earth?

Contract Killer. Constantly on camera, with lives made up of enemies, cool equipment, gorgeous clothes and little green Hunter Sheets, ‘Killers are the superheroes of SLA Industries that every kid wants to grow up to become. Your ‘Killer won’t be doing BPNs like those other saps - you’ll be finding and taking out subversives, fighting other ‘Killers to the death for the cameras, and making sure your sponsors get good airtime. Once you become known, you’ll find yourself immersed in a lethal world of fame and glamour where the booze and drugs are yours for the taking, and there’s eager babes and hunks round every corner desperate to screw you, kill you, or both. If you survive your first week, that is."

"Salvation Tower was a beacon of hope, prosperity and the future, a promise that could never be fulfilled. The bad times began with the collapse of the tower, bringing on the blackout that never ended. The walls came up and Mort City closed its doors. Outside the city’s protection, the land changed and Cannibal Sector 1 was born, and now, six hundred years on, it’s time to venture beyond the walls to reclaim what was lost. It’s time to take back the sector for SLA Industries.

After one failed attempt, the Bellwood Campaign seeks to redress the balance. The Shivers are sent out once again, only this time they meet the full horror of the wastelands. Taking the sector back means uncovering all of its secrets, something that comes at a price.

The most deadly threat when seeking the truth is that sometimes it finds you first."
