Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

As someone who's played both types during my 30+ years of playing RPG's, I think it ultimately comes down to what you want to play. Do you want to roleplay? Then play the light one. Do you want a milsim? Then play the heavy one. That's usually the mindset of the players, I find (and the GM's in many...

Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

Alien supports non-military play. Better, really, than it does Military play. Chariot of the Gods, for example, is a merchant ship crew cinematic. I've run 2 merchant campaigns and had just started a military one at my FLGS when the lockdown hit. It's worth stating clearly, as well - the core cover...

Re: Sentry gun in Hope's Last Day

. Correct. And omission in itself doesn't prove absence. All I say is that "the information we get from the actual movie does not support such an assumption ". That of course also means that there is nothing in the movie to justify stating that they had a militia as a categorical fact, either. But ...

Re: Sentry gun in Hope's Last Day

I'd argue that Pulse Rifles and Sentry guns are at the lowest rung of what the Colonial Marines have access to current military tech including pulse rifles is pretty off limits to civilians. the rulebook even says as much. at least the fully automatic versions with explosive rounds and grenade laun...

Re: Sentry gun in Hope's Last Day

But that’s precisely my point: according to the game and the adventure, the colonists did have access to such hardware, with sentry guns, pulse rifles, and whatnot. The information we get from the actual movie does not support such an assumption , as per the previous discussion. I, along with some ...

Re: Sentry gun in Hope's Last Day

I think the fact that you can find an M41A Pulse Rifle and an M240 Incinerator unit in the sub-levels indicate that the militia had access to military hardware, at least. So one solitary sentry gun isn't completely out of the realm of possibility, I'd say. Also, if you listen to Hudson's rant on the...

Re: How would you rule this? (crit injury)

Ok, I was going to leave this conversation, but some of these statements deserve an answer. Yes, without hesitation. Also, maybe intentional or unintentional, but please grow up and stop with the obvious insults. Rules lawyer? 'seriously', show some civility. How is rules lawyer an insult? It's just...

Re: Underpowered explosives?

I wish they'd done it the way they did in FFG's Star Wars games. There you have two values. You have the damage value of the grenade itself (usually pretty high), which is what damage the target gets... and then you have the blast value, which is what everyone else gets if you manage to get what wou...

Re: How would you rule this? (crit injury)

Also, another thing here is all this talk about how this would increase the value of mobility or lowering the values of killer or anything else like that. Sure... it would... but only if you're the one playing the murderer that plans on cold-bloodedly murder everyone else in the party... and how man...
