There’s been a lot of RPG games that’ve come and gone over the years. Not every game stays in print forever. And you can end up with some that many people love, but aren’t available anymore. Well, such was the case with SLA Industries. But it won’t be the case any longer. Daru...

Sure, you could just use a sharpened stick, or even just your bare hands in a fight, but that’s not really going to be very effective. Instead, why not bring in the big guns, like a C3 Plasma Bombard or one of the new weapons available for the Algoryn? Probably be much more effective....
