Re: The First Alien Podcast

I've finally managed to listen to all three episodes, as I mainly only listen when I commute (or do the dishes). Excusing the audio quality because it was recorded at the pub has to be the most English thing ever! I didn't have any problems hearing what was said, but I listened with headphones so ma...

Re: Chariot of the Gods

I had three players. Here are the characters they played: Player A: Miller Player B: Rye (actually Lucas) Player C: Wilson -> Clayton -> Flynn -> Johns -> end of scenario Player C's characters died a lot! All four of them actually, but he took them over in situations that were very lethal. With the ...

Re: Chariot of the Gods

I can only answer how I handled it, and it's not the only way. I didn't even need notes during my session, but if I had used it, it would only be for the players to ask for information and clarifications. If they wanted to perform some action, even as minor as sneaking something down into their pock...

Re: Chariot of the Gods

We used to leave the room back in the 90s, or we would have players close their eyes, cover their ears and sing a song when the GM was telling someone a secret. Nowadays we're much too lazy for all that. We use the occasional written note, or just nod and give thumbs up to signal agreement between p...

Re: Consumables

I think it's important to only use the consumables system when interesting or dramatically correct. If you can plan your spacewalk or hike, have nothing weird happen, and finish on time, you shouldn't even have to roll. You're supposed to roll for air every turn, so how could you ever spend a shift ...

Re: PDF Printer-friendly version?

I've just come here looking for a printer friendly version of the Character Sheet too. :)
There's a printer friendlier sheet posted by Addramyr here: viewtopic.php?f=99&t=4749&start=10#p36951

Re: Victorypoints

Victory points could be called "shares", as a reference to the first movie. If Brett and Parker are worried that the others get more shares, they better focus on their personal agendas. Or just "bonus points", because both space truckers and colonists want a bonus. Even colonial marines if they're s...

Re: Books, audiobooks and related ALIEN media

I haven't read any Alien comics, so I just got the Aliens Omnibus volume 1. I'm currently reading the first part called Outbreak. It's set after the Aliens movie, and it's very clear that they based the main characters Wilks and Bille on Hicks and Newt from the movie. The comic was originally releas...

Re: One-shot för Svärdets Sång

Många bra tips och mycket som i min mening egentligen gäller för i princip alla spelmöten. Transportsträckor är aldrig kul, om de inte fyller en funktion kan de lika gärna klippas bort. Stor tumme upp! Tack! Eftersom jag ännu inte spelat kan jag inte ger mer regeltekniska tips, utan delar din fråge...

Re: One-on-one/duet campaign

I haven't tried one-on-one play with Forbidden Lands specifically, in fact I'm preparing for my first session right now, but I'd keep everything about her character and the rules as is, because I don't think it needs changing. If your planned adventure is too difficult, there are a couple of other o...
