Klick's End
Publisher: Nightfall Games

The second SLA Industries Threat Analysis briefing is quite different fare to the first. Rather than detailing a new species (the Ursa Carrien), Klick's End goes into disturbing detail about a particularly degenerate sector of Downtown.

Klick's End has a claustrophobic, diseased feel to it, somewhat like the hideous forgotten towns that H. P. Lovecraft made such good use of. The inhabitants are clannish, hostile, casually violent, and always in need of a fun diversion -- torturing and then butchering a squad of hapless Operatives, for example. The briefing goes into detail about the sector: its physical state, the nature of the locals, what passes for entertainment, the various grudging retail outlets, assorted crime operations in the area, and The Quartet, the unsettling warlords who control the place. There are also a set of NPC profiles, details of new weapon and armour, and suggestions for four different ways that Klick's End could be brought into a game, including a detailed BPN.

For all that, perhaps the most unsettling aspect of the entire briefing is the revelation of a new addition to SLA's corporate structure -- the Moral Rights Division. SLA claims to be concerned with the rising tides of immorality on Mort... can that be the truth? Either way, a new repressive (and possibly even proto-fascist) SLA Department is sure to concern Operatives of all stripes.

The briefing is written and illustrated by Dave Allsop, so it doesn't get any more pure SLA than this. It's great stuff; absorbing text and gorgeously vivid art, all wrapped in the lavish Nightfall design and layout values that you'd expect. Klick's End comes across vivdly as an impressively horrible place, teeming with potential to really challenge and unnerve PCs. It's great value for money, but frankly it would be worth it just to get the inside scoop on the outrageously-named new Pigotry skill.

TL,DR: Top Notch. (sic).

Nightfall are really spoiling the SLA fan base, new and old with this new material. Klik's End has a lovely, "Urban Deliverance," feel that is very engaging and brings some light to Downtown life in a serous slum sector. The BPN is more a framework than a fully finished adventure, but that just gives the GM plenty of room to put in his own touches and tie it to an existing campaign.

Overall, excellent work. More please.

This is an excellent product. It really gives an incredible feel for the setting, especially the "normal" civilians of Downtown. The description of people's attitude reminds me of what some darker neighborhoods in the real world will end up as.

These products are dragging me back into the World of Progress. Now I need to drag my players in, kicking and screaming if necessary.

Following on from the first "Ursa" PDF product Klick's End provides an excellent microcosm of Downtown where the population are really unfriendly. The artwork is first class and the content feels spot on for the urban nightmare of Downtown.

There are a couple of pieces of new equipment and a starter BPN with some great plot hooks to get your players involved. The NPC's are fleshed out to the right amount of detail and everything is packaged up and ready to go. Certainly something I will using in my SLA games to come.

The only minor niggle is the justification of the text splits many words onto two lines which can break up the flow of the text.

Can't wait for the next one.
