Re: Who's gotten it to table so far?

So they were influenced by the Kane death in "Alien", they knew what it was going to happen and they transferred that knowledge to their characters. Not much realistic but they were all against my opinion. It isn't an opinion. It's the suspension of disbelief and the divide between character and pl...

Re: Several questions/clarifications

I have to say, all these questions suggest you're not trying hard enough to kill these characters off in various xeno-related and gruesome ways. I have now run  Chariot of the Gods  twice; both took about 4 to 4.5 hours total (all Acts) and no one ever got as far as making repairs. In the first game...

Re: Several questions/clarifications

9) And one more thought on the scenario - the characters are offered the choice to either repair or replace a certain important item - shouldn't just be repair? If you're talking about the carbon filters, then I would suggest that it's entirely likely that the Cronus will carry spares, probably on ...

Re-roll? Sure... why not?

We finished off the Alien Quickstart adventure last night and it proved climatic, unexpected and quite funny at times, especially when my wife noted that she only needed to roll two stress dice not three (having rolled 5,5 and 1) and got this... http://www.boreders.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/IMG...

Re: First Aid

The largest benefits of First Aid are: It allows those trained with the potentially life saving ability to assist an injured or ill person during a variety of emergency situations. You need to remember that First Aid  isn't medicine, hospital care or surgery. It's emergency triage, handling the lif...

Re: Ship Maps in the Starter Kit.

I got them printed professionally on waterproof/tearproof material at A3 scale for less than £20 delivered. I plan to get plenty of use out of them, so I thought "Why not?"

Re: Pull Rank

1) This is more complicated. I think there are easy assumptions (for example: the officer commands roughnecks or pilot)... but sometimes there is no so easy (I am talking about company agents for example). Anyway, I think the officer is above all in the ship so he/she can "pull rank" anyone in his/...

Re: Who's gotten it to table so far?

I've run two games, one with my home group and another at a local store. The home session we played for a little over 2 hours and got to the end of Act I. The store session ran for 3.75 hours, start to finish. I use the collision with the Cronus to introduce the game mechanics, handling some of the ...

Re: Scenario Maps

Nothing stopped you from printing out copies of the maps yourself. I created motion tracker blips -- with actual crew where appropriate -- just to keep track of everything on the table during play.
