Re: Alien Isolation as a cinematic scenario?

Well, I’ll add some other ideas, a bit outside the main premise presented here... As a start, I would consider keeping Amanda Ripley in the story. She could be either an NPC or a PC. Maybe some other PC already has a connection to her in some way? Perhaps through some previous mission? Or from a cor...

Re: Pertinax

It’s a very well written campaign draft with many interesting details. But since you asked for opinions, I’ll give you mine. The story is based around a couple of missions. That’s good, but I’m also thinking about the PCs. What are their possibilties? You mention a few desicions they are able to mak...

Re: Long-term campaigns: tips? ideas? scenarios?

Good ideas! As for The Fiorina 161 Class C Work Correctional Unit setting, perhaps the breakout scenario plot "Arbetsläger 23" from old Mutant UA:s "Kalabaliken i Karle" could be refitted? Thanks. My memories of ”Arbetsläger 23” are quite vague (and I’ve sold most of my MUA collection), but maybe t...

Re: Long-term campaigns: tips? ideas? scenarios?

The first and the third of these three campaign drafts may include xenos in some form - if you like. The main idea is to present ideas that should be possible to expand on in different ways. Hopefully it’s a fresh take on what Alien could be, without stretching to far away from the franchise core. T...

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...
