SLA Industries: Cannibal Sector 1 - Tabletop Skirmish in the World Of Progress

Daruma Productions, in conjunction with Nightfall Games, will produce the SLA Industries: Cannibal Sector 1 skirmish game and all the miniatures and accessories needed to play. The book will be lavishly produced by Nightfall Games and Daruma Productions with new full-colour illustrations by Dave Allsop. 

What is SLA Industries?

What is SLA Industries? In 1993, the Scottish company Nightfall Games released SLA Industries, its roleplaying game of science fiction horror, a very British antidote to the slick and angsty settings that were popular at the time. Set in The World Of Progress, the sphere of SLA Industries’ influence in the known universe, players take on the roles of operatives, employees of an all-encompassing company that controls a frightened population with reality TV and violence while a creeping horror claws its way through the edges of reality.

Original 1993 version of SLA Industries
Original 1993 version of SLA Industries

“Operative, Employee, Contract Killer, Necanthrope, Ebon, Biogenetic, Corporate. These are the lifestyles available to you when you enter SLA Industries’ World of Progress. A society split between truth and deception, conflict and political subversion, style and horror. Television and Insanity. Fighting for your life as an oblivious public watches on, awaiting your last breath between the adverts.”

The game has seen renewed popularity recently, as Nightfall Games reclaimed publication, releasing source material as PDFs over the last few years. With the game returning to print in the near future, Nightfall Games partnered with Daruma Productions to produce a line of miniatures (including iconic characters like Halloween Jack and Delia the Destroyer) and a skirmish game to allow more people to enjoy the setting and characters of SLA Industries.

What is SLA Industries: Cannibal Sector 1?

 

Since the original release of SLA Industries, players have asked for miniatures and skirmish rules and, in 2015, Daruma Productions teamed up with Nightfall Games to bring the miniatures to your tables, with Scavs, Shivers, Carrien and a couple of heroes. Now, it’s time for the second half of the plan; the tabletop skirmish rules.

And this is where you come in.

To bring the cannibal sectors outside of Mort city alive, we need to develop the book that describes the setting and the rules, and to do this properly we need crowdfunding.

 

 

 

 

 

The Factions

Here are the first factions to enter Cannibal Sector 1:

Shivers

 

Shiver Units operate chiefly as SLA Industries’ main police force, but they also serve as the primary line of defence along the Sector Wall. 24 hours a day, the men and women of the Shiver Units patrol the perimeters, and more increasingly, journey into Cannibal Sector itself to drive back its ferocious inhabitants. To work in the sector the Shivers give up the green armour for grey, and switch from the standard ball bearing round for the lethal flechette in their Gauss Rifles. They are brave, loyal, and, most importantly, expendable.

Carrien

 

Carrien are a strange, highly aggressive indigenous species of Mort. With their canine-skulled heads and hockey-stick weapons, the Carrien are instantly recognisable, and they are commonly found in the dark passageways of Downtown. The bulk of their numbers, however, live and thrive in the Cannibal Sectors. Carrien exist solely to feed and they perpetually stalk the ruins in search of fresh prey, beating them to death and gulping down their flesh raw in great chunks.

Scavs

 

Many consider the Scavs to be the greatest new threat in the Cannibal Sector. They are a race of beings cloaked in mystery; their faces hidden behind gas masks and bodies shrouded in piecemeal armour and filthy rags. Despite their dishevelled appearance, Scavs are a force to be reckoned with, having an intellect to match their towering statures. They work ceaselessly to gather scrap from the city ruins to then convert their recovered junk into powerful weapons and vehicles. Only their low numbers stand against them, but each individual Scav is an equal match to a SLA Operative.

Cannibals

 

Lack of food, clean air and water created the cannibals of Sector One. They have existed, threatened and neglected by SLA Industries, since its earliest days. As the centuries passed, the cannibal clans were formed, and their numbers swelled to alarming proportions. The cannibals began as impoverished humans, but toxic waste, horrors of Sector life and natural selections have created hulking monstrosities that can hold their own against neighbouring Carrien and Scavs.

DarkNight

DarkNight Inc. are the age-old enemy of SLA Industries. The two companies have been locked in bloody corporate war for centuries. This battle has been played out on the savage war worlds, the subterranean streets of Downtown, and finally, in the wreckage of the Cannibal Sectors. Dark Night send out their best and most notorious agents far into the dead cities to slaughter Shivers and Carrien alike.

SLA Operatives

 

Operatives are the finest trained and best equipped staff in SLA Industries. Their principal directives are to protect SLA Industries from rival company attacks, destroy hostiles subversives on Mort and throughout the World of Progress. SLA Industries selects only the best trainees to become Ops; the majority are human, but they will readily employ alien races like the Wraithen and Shaktars, pseudo-magic wielding beings knows as Ebons, and biogenetic warrior Stormers. Operatives fulfil a selection of different missions for the company; these will occasionally take them into the depths of Cannibal Sectors in order to exterminate high-level threats, like marauding Scavs or particularly well-organised cannibal enclaves.

What do I get?

What you are funding is the rulebook and faction decks. The book is to be full-colour with all-new illustrations by Dave Allsop, designed by Nightfall Games and written by Daruma Productions with dozens of pages of new background and information by Dave Allsop and Jared Earle, two of the original writers of SLA Industries. Our head of Rules Development is Brad Zalad, a familiar face in the UK tournament scene. He runs a tight ship ruleswise and is keen that SLA Industries: Cannibal Sector 1 is a balance between tight, tournament-ready rules and scenario-driven narrative games.

Along with the gorgeous rulebook, you will be getting faction decks and other goodies depending on your pledge levels, all fresh from the high-quality Daruma Productions facilities, including exclusive bags and shirts.

Incidentally, most of the miniatures you need to play the game are already available, well before the Kickstarter delivery and the free play-test rules will allow you to use them before the Kickstarter fulfilment date. 

Thank you for your support. We look forward to your joining us on this Kickstarter and hope that you enjoy the ride!

Be a part of the playtest group!

Risks and challenges

The production time and costs for this book are considerable, not to mention the playtesting and revising of the rules. Then there are the print costs for a full colour, hardback book - none of this is cheap. We do however, have an amazing team here at Daruma Productions.

Daruma Productions's creative team of Dave Allsop and Jared Earle, both of Nightfall Games, have already got a proven track record of producing superb publications and a richly detailed setting, and the rest of the production team has decades of Industry experience with some of the tabletop gaming worlds biggest names.

As this is our first Kickstarter, it is all new to us, but we already have a proven track record, with a combination of innovative new practices and back-to-basics business. Daruma Productions has already brought a fantastic range of miniatures to market and is continuing to do so month after month, all self-funded and are working with an ever growing number of Retailers world wide to establish the SLA Industries line globally.

With the support we gain from this Kickstarter we will use all of our knowledge, experience and skills to ensure that this project is finished on time, in time and with the level of quality our customers already expect from us.

Instead of funding and developing more miniatures and adding those to the Kickstarter, we are looking to fund just the rulebook to our own high standards and reward the backers with some truly special items.

We have already secured excellent 3rd party Warehouse & distribution facilities to ensure that every pledge is delivered smoothly and efficiently anywhere in the world and we aim to have the book produced, printed and delivered before next summer. Many things can go wrong in that time but we have contingencies planned and have allowed time to cover those eventualities.

If you want any of the miniatures that are already available, or the ones that will be by launch, you can pop over to our website or your local stockist and get them now. We hope that the Independent Retailers will help support us in getting this game to market, safe in the knowledge that we are supporting them by ensuring that the miniature range is aimed at their market, giving them the chance to make the most of the SLA range.

Support your local retailer. Welcome to the World of Progress.
