Re: How many xenos on LV-426?

The nostromo took place over less than 24 hours. Avp r was like a week-ish. I figure the one on the nostromo didnt have the time to start becoming a queen yet and dallas was just sticking to a wall ready to go when it got its early queen abilities.

Re: How many xenos on LV-426?

On the other hand I think it makes more sense for a drone to begin to molt into a queen when no queen is present. They already go through several life stages. Having one in absence of the reproducing queen molt again into a premature queen and then take over the swarm while implanting many embryos a...

Re: Prometheus - the Franchise killer

 There is the monster again. And here comes the company. Ripley's story is about loss. Newt and Hicks have no lasting place in that story. While an astute observation, the conclusion does not logically follow. It's entirely possible to have Hicks and Newt  survive through the story, with Hicks dyin...

Re: Prometheus - the Franchise killer

Alien 3 is fine and Hicks/Newt dying in the opening fits with Ripley's over all story. Ripley's story, at it's core, is about loss at the hands of the company in pursuit of their monster. She's not aloud to make any gains. Her ultimate victory comes when she denies WY of it's prize. Taking from them...

Re: Prometheus - the Franchise killer

I should not be required to read something in order to make a move make sense. If it is not in the movie but needed to be in the movie to make sense, the movies new name  is shitshow. Most films cut time out or do not add the full script to reduce film time but that can lead to things not making se...

Re: GM Screen

The outside of a GM Screen is where pretty pictures and style goes. The inside should be a monument to clinical practicality. We will have to make out own. I generally don't use screens, but instead, put the charts and tables landscape into a folder. If I can keep my tables down to 2 page sides, I ...

Re: GM Screen

I have never (not even once) purchased a GM screen that had the information I needed on a GM screen without the crap I I did not need wasting space. I would love it if FL built the alien screen to have exactly what we need but chances are the font will be too big, the margins will be too big, art an...

Re: Question on Stamina, Pushing and Stress dice

The idea is that yes, you are sick or freezing, but the stress allows you to dig deep into your reserves and maybe get a second wind to persevere.

However, if you are mortally wounded, it doesn't matter how stressed you are. Dying is dying.

Re: Is Aliens: Colonial Marines still considered canon?

Alien 3 the movie did happen. Which version of alien 3 happened we are unsure of. But the end result for sure occurred and the surviving prisoner wrote a book that has spread out there in colonized space.

Re: Movement in Combat

I suggested these house rules before. The game as written has hard caps. You get one slow action and one fast action or 2 fast actions and that is it. You are actually INCAPABLE of doing anything else. Instead, you get 1 slow and 1 fast (or 2 fast). Each additional slow action you attempt comes wit...
