Re: What was Weyland-Yutani up to? (Story help)

Well, you are most welcome! Here are my creative suggestions: 1. A new, powerful android prototype, able to predict the future. Or maybe able to find Engineer locations. Or both. Still not a very accurate prototype, but the potential is huge. It might develop over time, as machine learning often doe...

Re: What was Weyland-Yutani up to? (Story help)

Well, can’t the PCs just go to the facility to find something or someone important to them or the Company? Maybe they have recieved some kind of message or even an invitation before arriving. And when they arrive, they soon realize that something is wrong in the facility. A rebellion, a failed exper...

Re: What was Weyland-Yutani up to? (Story help)

Ah, ok. So maybe most of the facility is underground, while only the top levels are abandoned? There could be traces of a battle, perhaps some dead humans (earlier visitors from the Company?). The captain might be a part of the rebellion or working against it.

Re: What was Weyland-Yutani up to? (Story help)

Well, since the planet is surrounded by an electromagnetic barrier, the Company must be hiding something. The captain probably knows what it’s all about. A few possiblities: 1. It’s an old penal colony or a high security prison. The Company keep some of their enemies here. Perhaps U. P. P. prisoners...

Re: Campaign Mode... some thoughts

I agree. Dealing with the fact that most players will expect an encounter with the xenomorphs is hard to avoid. A way to get around that in a campaign could be the questions I posted on page 3 in this thread. Another, perhaps simpler way, could be to consider three core themes in the Alien franchise...

Re: Personal agendas with stronger ties to the Company

You are most welcome, Lukbehindu. I guess that the bigger picture in most campaigns is more or less corporate. To break down the dystopian megacorp capitalism, a core theme in this setting, to an individual level is, I think, cruisial. I might post an additional list later on, perhaps with another t...

Re: Space Trucker Campaign Ideas

To answer the question raised by ILKAIN, I certainly don’t think you are doing anything wrong. However, it puts the truckers in another situation. Of course, their profit might be bigger, but I would also say that they get some negative attention from corporate representatives who don’t like freelan...

Re: Räls + sandbox = storybox

Jag tycker att en metaplot bör vara tydlig, komprimerad och inte utspridd över flera böcker. Det viktiga ska inte vara någon annanstans, i en annan produkt. Kan man inte vara komprimerad behöver man, som jag ser det, skala av. Ett bra koncept går att beskriva kortfattat. Är det krångligt är det dåli...

Re: Räls + sandbox = storybox

Ah, då är jag med dig. Filmgenren film noir innehåller ju mycket av detta. Grandville, som jag bara har bläddrat i, verkar vara en ångpunkig djurfabel med film noir-teman, alltså dyster Bogart-detektiv i en korrupt värld med moralisk gråskala. Det tål att funderas på hur man kan lyfta fram den här g...
