Re: Puzzles

My issue with riddles (which I do use sometimes but rarely) is you are not presenting an issue for the characters to overcome but an issue for the players to overcome. Even players who are great role players playing general unintelligent characters, when presented with a riddle, will drop all pretex...

Re: Why 1s on SKILL dice may be rerolled?

Why the skill dices, which come up with 1s, may be rerolled on push. Yeah, it is RAW, but what point? What the design idea is placed here? Because, if you may easily reroll 1s - why you need to rise skills ever and spend XP on them? 1s only cause damage when the roll is pushed. If the player rolls ...

Re: Kids? Really?

I don't think this is a discussion between GM and player as much as a group discussion with the players. He needs to fit in with the crew and that means working with the other players to be something that enhances everyones experience.

Re: Borrowing from Coriolis..

I understand that their should be a real threat of death. Maybe it’s my years of playing D&D and pathfinder but I have found that if players are dying a lot in a campaign they will start to loose interest. I think that extra boost is not something that will break the system. I think alien is less s...

Re: Converting 5E to Forbidden Land

A lot of powerful 5E creatures are immune to damage from non-magical weapons.  I don’t think this fully fits with Forbidden Lands.  For any conversions I was thinking of changing this to - Maximum of 1 damage from any physical attacks. For resistance against non-magical weapons, I would just half p...

Re: Alien films

I always assumed since we have never seen any drone do any of those things on their own (The Alien in Alien and Alien 3 could have cut power but didn't) that those actions were done under the direction of the Queen, which again, is shown to be a lot smarter than the workers.

Re: Do you roll in the open?

I only roll behind a screen and I always roll for the players for rolls that they should not know how well they have done or not. Like if it's DnD I roll search/notice checks. If they roll a 1 I don't want them to know they did critically bad. I just want them to know that they didn't find anything....

Re: Alien films

Two turned on one in order to escape. The Aliens in the second and third films solved problems.  They retreated from the sentry guns, then found another way in and attacked ops from three different fronts.  In Alien 3 the creature used the airducts to get around a locked door and kill David, and us...

Re: Alien films

The Aliens in Resurrection abduct people and kill people.  Just like the Aliens in the other films. They also turn on each other, have conversations with each other, are problem solving smart (the queen is supposed to be, the drones are not), dodge bullets somehow, and do a lot of other uncharacter...

Re: Alien films

I only accept resurrection because it does not have any actual aliens in it. Nothing in there behaves anything like the aliens are supposed to which makes sense because they are partial human hybrids from the cloning process. (In the same way that Ripley 8 is a partial alien hybrid.) That being said...
