Re: Introducing the xenomorph - any advice ?

have your players find the hive. The secretion all up the wall, forming a rib cage like pattern across the ceiling, the unbearable warmth and the stench.
Ooo, yeah that's a good one! Didn't even think about that =D

Re: Introducing the xenomorph - any advice ?

I think the chestburster is the most inconic, and defining moment of "what is alian" that I wouldn't go any other way in an RPG.  You can probably introduce a grown xenomorph in a way that is cool and scary, and also manages to make it clear to the players that it is in fact a xenomorph even though ...

Re: Skeleton and sword

Yeah, I'd also say the "max 1 point of damage" would only apply if the sword is being used to stab with. 

Once that has been established around the gaming table, that's when you pull out the skeletons wearing chainmail! >D

Re: [Moved] Kids? Really?

I'm not sure I'll be able to come up with a reason for the crew to NOT just drop him off at the next space station. If the character becomes a burden to the rest of the crew they will totally do that to be rid of him. Why is this not true for all the rest of the characters? Being dumped by the crew...

Re: Alien films

I have a love/hate with them as I do most films post Aliens. Out of the two of them, Prometheus is a slightly better movie though as Deacanox alluded to the tech is so much better that it doesn't feel like its even in the same universe as Alien or Aliens. This could be explained by "rich guy made a...

Re: Alien films

I'm interessted, what do you guys think of Prometheus and Alien Covenant? Pretty good, I watch them from time to time. But I would probably even take Alien 4 over both of them any day in the week. Prometheus and Covenant contains much cooler ideas, but the stupid stuff in them disturbs my verisimil...

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

how do you kill an enemy.  And if the enemy survives their critical injuri, you'll have to "finsih them off" if you want/can.  To do that, the enemy must be broken, and the one delivering the killing blow must spend a willpower point AND fail a charisma roll or what ever the social attribute is cal...

Re: Why 1s on SKILL dice may be rerolled?

Why the skill dices, which come up with 1s, may be rerolled on push. Yeah, it is RAW, but what point? What the design idea is placed here? Because, if you may easily reroll 1s - why you need to rise skills ever and spend XP on them? Because you want to become better at what you do.  The number of a...

Yeah, bonus dice from talents are skill dice (or artifact dice, for level 3).

Re: Alien films

About films, why does many purist Alien-fans discard Alien 3?  It's pretty gloomy. In 1 and 2, the good guys win in the end. In 3, it's more of a loose-loose situation. Also, it I would imagine a lot of people balked at the new alien.  But I really like Alien 3. The prison planet is cool, the priso...
