Re: Alien on Roll20

Probably not the easy solution you are looking for, but creating different colored dice (white for skills dice; yellow for stress dice) is simple enough.  See Rollable Tables.

I'm currently running two Alien games via Roll20.  No issues thus far.

Re: Thoughts on additional PCs for Chariot of the Gods?

#2 Transferring over 2 PCs from the Cronus is an easy solution to have 7 PCs from the start.  The Cronus crew is really there just as canon fodder or as replacement PCs, so in my mind they are free game to cannibalize as needed. For my game, I also made Lucas, the Synthetic, his own character from t...

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

I'm running the Chariot of the Gods scenario in three parts over the next three consecutive week.  Part One (Act I) is tomorrow.  I turned Lucas into an already revealed, playable character from the start, so I have 6 pre-generated PC choices. For gear management, I've consolidated all the Montero g...

Re: Cinematic pdf

Since I've expressed a dislike of the Secret Android plot, I'm considering running Lucas as an available PC from the beginning.  Already revealed as a Synthetic, he would 'activate' as the crew of the Montero wake from cryosleep.  He'd be played differently than the other PCs; Lucas still has his Pe...

Re: Cinematic Starter Kit feedback

1. Recommend defining 'ATV'. The first mention of 'ATV' is on page 121, under 'AUXILIARY VEHICLES':  " The Cronus has no rovers aboard, only two ATVs in her garage.. ." (ATV = All-Terrain Vehicle) 2. Recommend defining 'RTV'. The first and only mention of 'RTV' is on page 134, under 'GARAGE':  " Mos...

Re: Cinematic Starter Kit feedback

Recommend defining 'EEV'.  

The first mention of 'EEV' is on page 117, under 'CLAYTON, COMPANY AGENT':  "NOTE that only Clayton has the codes to the wall safe and the EEV in her quarters on Deck B of the Cronus."

(EEV = Emergency Escape Vehicle)

Cold-Blooded Talent

A possible Cold-Blooded talent is listed under COUP DE GRÂCE on Page 65:  "If you have the Cold-Blooded talent, you can kill defenseless enemies without this negative effect." Unfortunately, this is the only mention of "cold-blooded" in the ALIEN Cinematic Starter Kit.  Possibly a holdover/copy-and...

Re: Cinematic pdf

No, Lucas increases +3 agility and strength (page 105). On the contrary, I think Lucas loses his talent when he's discovered. It's not said specifically but, in essence, the talents can't be played by Lucas since they involve to increase the stress level, push rolls, etc and a revealed android can'...

Re: Cinematic pdf

Possible typo/error: Page:  118.  Scenario. Section:  Ava 6, Synthetic No Talent listed.  Only NPC without a Talent (though could also be because Ava 6 is the only NPC that is also a Synthetic). Going back to my previous theory:  NPC Ava 6 does not have a Talent listed because she is a Synthetic an...

Re: Chariot of the Gods, Act II

Working within the self-contained Cinematic scenario, I was considering giving Ava 6 the Analyze Talent, but then that requires an edit to her name, "Ava 6, Scientist" instead of "Ava 6, Synthetic", to conform to the instructions on page 139, "A Scientist can ANALYZE..." On a separate, but related, ...
