Splicers is a role-playing game that combines science fiction and horror in a post-apocalyptic setting on a world that could be Earth or a coloney world. The people themselves don't know.

What was once a world dominated by humans and advanced civilization is now a world in ruins. The once great cities are shattered ruins or being torn down and terraformed into lush forests. The few cities that do exist are either historical recreations populated by androids or Retro-Villages, an innocent euphemism for a "zoo" for humans.

How did this all happen? The Machine took over, decided humans were vermin that needed to be exterminated, and sent a couple billion robots to wipe out humankind.

Our story starts generations later, as the Human Resistance makes its boldest move to reclaim parts of their world and find a way to stop the insane Machine. It is a story of sacrifice and triumph, of undying spirit and weird science.

  • Overview and history of the Splicers world.
  • The Machine, its insanities and seven personalities.
  • The robots of the Machine. Drones like the Necrobots and Necroborgs. Extermination robots like the Cable Snake, Sewer Prowler and Skitter Pod. Hunter-killer robots like the Steel Trooper, Assault Slayer, and Flying Strike-Ship, and juggernauts of destruction like the Battle Track and Land Dominator. 19 robot/drones in all.
  • The Human Resistance and their living organic weapons and technology.
  • Super-powerful Host Armor, War Mounts and Bio-Weapons.
  • The Splicers: Archangel, Dreadguard, Packmaster, Saint, Scarecrow, Skinjob and others.
  • Ten superhuman O.C.C.s of the Human Resistance, their weapons and dreams.
  • Compatible with Rifts, Mechanoid Space and other Mega-Damage settings.
  • 224 pages by Carmen Bellaire with Kevin Siembieda.

Endless possibilities, limited only by your imagination.

Would you say the Splicers corebook is a standalone product? Does it have tables to generate baddies, etc.?

No physical book to buy?

Splicers is great! Content is great!

But this is a scanned copy of the book: no toc. This is not really as useful as it *should* be...

Pretty dissatisfied.

You can tell someone at Palladium wrote the description when the first sentence has a typo. Coloney? Seriously?

And nearly four years later after being pointed out it still hasn't been fixed. :face_palm:

One issue I'd like to point out which is an important consideration is that this is literally a scanned copy of the book. There is no book marking in the .pdf file.

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.
