The flesh is weak. Only an iron body can contain an iron will. Through the artificial shall we break the chains of mortality.

Automata is a mod for the Sigil System that deals with everything artificial, from playing as a completely automaton character, to having cybernetic implants, to upgrading your body (meat or metal) to be the best that technology can make it. 

Nothing, however, is for free and and to become an immortal soul in an unchanging body in Automata there is a lot you'll have to give up. Sure, you won't need to eat, drink, or sleep; but now your body also won't naturally repair anymore, and magical healing is out of the question. And muscle memory and strength training? Forget about it. You'll need to now find an artificer to make yourself better. An unchanging body means exactly that. But you don't need to go feet first into that artificial life. You can treat your body like the ship of Theseus: slowly but surely replacing bit by bit, getting comfortable with each augmentation and then going onto the next one. This mod can handle anything from 0% to 100% artificiality.

Since Automata is a mod (or addon) for the Sigil System, you will need the Sigil System in order to use it. It is also setting-neutral so you can use it for any setting or genre that you can think of.

Inside the mod:

  • Rules for playing as an artificial character, be it a fantasy golem, steampunk automaton or a sci-fi robot
  • In depth look at how giving up a meat body for a metal one will affect your character
  • Character creation section for starting your campaign off as an automata
  • Rules for creating and implanting augments and modifications to your artificial chassis
  • A crafting section for making your augments and automatons in the game

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
