SIS/TR System-Neutral Operating Manual


Starborn Invasion System/Turret Regenerator

System-Neutral Operating Guide  

How SIS/TR works

Each of the four sides has their own attack or defend modes. Flip SIS/TR to a different side to change modes: attack / shield / hack / retreat (not including face and rear).

The control sheet allows the warden to track hit points per side as well as which side is active. The book and/or operating manual details both SIS/TR’s attack modes and turrets. Each mode/side has its own unique stats that effect how SIS/TR acts and if it can deploy turrets.

Turrets have their own hit points as well as six variable modes with deadly attacks. Once destroyed, turrets cannot be redeployed, but they can repair if they are retracted before they expire. Turret 2, side five example:

Swap / Teleport - Two targets are deemed inappropriately positioned in SIS/TR’s insane model of time-space. SIS/TR rolls to hit the target with the highest defensive stat (AC, etc.) There is no resistance to this effect. Using its particle transpositioning frequency, the turret immediately outlines the forms of the two random targets with a shimmering green contour. The targets switch locations with one another and act normally on their next turn. If SIS/TR scores a critical failure when rolling to hit the targets, the Players may locate their characters anywhere in the room they like. If SIS/TR critically hits the targets, it rolls to hit again. If the second roll hits, the biomatter of the two targets is violently combined and the result is a quivering mass of twisted flesh and gore that will spray stinking fluid and clots of tissue - and dies at the beginning of its next turn - unless nothing short of a miracle is used to reverse the effect.

“Brooding with atmosphere, a.i. gone wrong, and a rich tapestry of gore-soaked hallways ringing out with the screams of the damned await you with SIS/TR. If you like your horror Weird, you won’t be disappointed. This thing drips.” Jarrett Crader.

A viscious boss with six sided deployable turrets.

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.
