Re: Aliens Infiltrator & Fireteam Elite

My players took a vote and decided they wanted to move our CMOM campaign to 2202 in the fireteam timeline. So I guess their PCs will have a nice long hypersleep nap, and I'll have to track down a lore document...

Re: Political Map

Re: Political Map

Thanks! Angelman, Yeah a series of maps showing the extent of exploration at key junctures of the timeline would help a lot. For instance, if the PCs are in a remote system and take refuge in an abandoned installation, it would be nice to know roughly how old could it be and where were the people fr...

Re: Inspiration thread: Books, comics, movies set in a similar setting to Alien + Aliens?

Nightside City by Lawrence Watt-Evans. More in the Bladerunner/Cyperpunk space, it does take place on a Mercury-type planet where a deep impact crater on the nightside was able to be terraformed. The location could be a good 'port of call' as it is completely a company town and thoroughly corrupt. ...

Political Map

Here are the main regions mentioned so far: https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/5333111ae4b09574e43ca618/1628904197528-P2LYDLBRSNQ1VPS0FEO...

A UK travel map would be pretty useful for running a 28 Days Later campaign using the 4e rules. Here is a question: where in the UK would be an interesting area to travel through...
