Subtle Fluid ☉ The blooder

Selected Option:
Softcover, Premium Color Book
PDF + Softcover, Premium Color Book

SUBTLE FLUID offers 37 pages of rules, art by Ethan Gould, and hooks about nanotechnology—collected into a single zine, immaculately designed by Erich Lazar—that will add dangerous spice to your games of Stillfleet, or any other sci-fi RPG.

Inside the PDF:

  • Rules for the blooder class in Stillfleet—these nanite warlocks are still capable of manipulating Terra's self-assembling mist…
  • Names and other character details for sleepers (the humans most likely to become blooders)
  • The full list of 39 nanofluidics powers—including spewcloudboneless, and many other strange and memorable abilities
  • The Blood—rules for many types of dangerous nano-juice
  • Nanobioelectric tattoos that allow non-blooders to access nanofluidics (for a price)…
  • 30+ nanotech items—from faceshape to mirrorskin
  • Tons of new art to bring more of the bizarrely grim-zany universe of Stillfleet to life
  • “The Sea of Our Origins”—nanotech and the human body! This section offers insight into what really happens when you use nanotech, provide a list of nanotech “foods” and “drinks,” and include more details on the bloodmadness often experienced by sleepers
  • The Blood Supply Catalogue™—the culture of nanotech: these 5000-year old magazine centerfolds offer cryopods for sale, parasitic nanofamiliars, and wraithlike servos… 
  • Two mini-ventures focused on nanotech—including random encounters and locations
  • Rules for walkers (roamers, lurkers, biters…)—the dead, animated again by the ravening nanorobots within their veins
  • Conversion tips for d20 RPGs—run nanofluidics as a unique spell list!

Original electronic
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.
