Quick question. Playing through Volturnus series using new rules, and I am currently starting the Battle for Volturnus - but I don't have the attributes for the Sathar Brain in the first battle. I can't even recall where I found it last.

As you peer into this dimly lit chamber you see a huge flask in the center of the room. The flask is full of fluid, and has numerous tubes leading into it. These tubes connect to other flasks in various locations about the room. There are also wires leading into the large central flask. The wires connect to a complex-looking device on a shelf at the back of the room. Floating in the center of the large flask is the brain of some creature. This is the disembodied brain of a Sathar, kept alive perpetually by this apparatus. Its function is to direct the slavebots by radio control. The brain will attempt tosummon any remaining slavebots to its defense when the party enters. It is helpless otherwise.

Thanks for the quick response woot, but I was referring to the mention of the robot brain counter in module SF2: Starspawn of Volturnus, Zeta Section: The Battle of Volturnus, 1) The Attack on the Mechanon Forces.

If I recall correctly, was it that the mention of a robot brain was a typo? I can't remember if that's it, or if the error was in not printing the robot brain stats.

Seeing as how it only takes one turn for these Sathar robot bums to move the entire length of the map and pounce on my forces compels me to "overlook" the mention of the brain in this encounter!

I think robot brains in general are statted in Alpha Dawn, under robots.
" 'Beware the Beast, Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport, for lust, for greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death."
