    Default Adapting SLA Industries to a different rules system.

    I quite fancy running some SLA Industries, but the system is very clunky and I would like to adapt it to something more streamlined. Any thoughts on something that would allow for some "magic", "cybertech", guns but also favour h2h fighting?

    Made an account specifically to reply to this.

    The recently released SLA 2nd Edition is much less clunky, trades (Lots of) crunch for a more cinematic approach if you like that kind of thing. There's also a progression in world lore and refinements or redesigns of previous ideas. I like the lore, but still not convinced by the combat, very much like the original I guess.

    You could also consider searching for Savage SLA which I believe is still available for download. My team didnt get on with it, but I'm a huge fan of savage worlds so I think it's worth a look.

    Shadowrun would be another option - all you'd really need to do is shape up your races.

    Thank you both for your replies. I have found Savage SLA (never played Savage World rules) so wil have a look at that first.
    Never considered re-skinning Shadowrun.

    It's been a million years and ...

    Have looked at SLA 2E. It's frustrating as they have made some significant and good changes, but they have still left in some clunk - and then added some more for good measure. Combat is still too clunky (Wounds and HP, the why?; Armour degradation and shiz), there are still distinct skills for pistols, rifles, Automatic weapons - but mostly why did they go with the beautiful d10+stuff to succeed, but then ask players to roll another xd10 to do ... what?

    Have looked at Savage Worlds - I like need to give it some thought. I don't know why but the core rulebook put me off. I must be getting slow/cranky in my old age, but if a game doesn't have a quick flow-chart/cheat sheet then I get grumpy.

    I know the feeling...
    Fortuanatly, I have a group with people who have more time to read and understand rules than I do
