Re: What is the Bloomkamp alien suit really about?

I prefer to view this suit as something far more than a battle suit. I’d rather say it’s a living thing, with unknown long term effects. Maybe the person in the suit is just a kind of host?

Re: Has anyone made additional careers?

Perhaps you could approach it even more general and start with career paths? Three are already in the game (truckers, marines, colonists). I would add crime syndicates and explorers (like the crew in Prometheus). You can imagine many additional careers within those paths. For the crime syndicate: dr...

Re: Complex careers & additional agendas

Maybe not exactly what you are looking for, but it might still be useful: https://forum.frialigan.se/viewtopic.php?f=103&t=5563&p=44762#p44762 My point is that the corporate aspect should (or at least could) matter more. You could probably do something similar with the marines as well, just by empha...

Re: The Game for Our Time

This bizarre and lethal pathogene made me think of a pandemic in the Alien universe? What if humans were the targets?

Re: Buddies and Rivals

Most FL games have some sort of Buddy system. It may be called different thing in different games. The idea is for your character to have a best friend for roleplay purposes. How much each player wants to play on this varies from player to player and even session to session and who that best friend...

Re: Buddies and Rivals

Quite so. But what I'm suggesting is that the "corporate" might also incorporate (pun intended) other kinds of institutional entities, not necessarily corporations, per se. But that’s not what I’m saying. I’m saying that most characters in this game have corporate connections. I think that aspect s...

Re: Buddies and Rivals

Several companies are described in the basic rule set. But my point is that the corporate aspect, trope or theme should matter also on an individual level.

Re: Buddies and Rivals

I agree that it might be hard to make the relationships work in a longer campaign. Personally, I think that the corporate aspect of the setting needs to be fleshed out. The Corporation should matter on a more personal level. Maybe this thread could be helpful: https://forum.frialigan.se/viewtopic.ph...

Re: UPP Equipment / Aethetics

Tarakan, I would have a look at some real world Soviet brands. It’s not hard to imagine updated versions of Kalashnikov rifles. The brand Kalashnikov could still be there. Wikipedia: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalashnikov_rifle The Soviet navy could be a good inspiration for U. P. P. spaceships...

Re: UPP Equipment / Aethetics

Maybe you already know this, but I’ll link it anyway: https://avp.fandom.com/wiki/Union_of_Progressive_Peoples The equipment is for sure something that could be interesting, but of course there are many other aspects of the U. P. P. as a concept. The main point is that it’s something that isn’t corp...
