Re: Good Map Generator?

Campaign cartographer is really good but also insanely expensive. If you have a copy and learn to use it there really isn't much you can't do. Core isn't that expensive US$45 cor cc3+, or $99 for cc3+, City designer, and Dungeon Designer... It's rather powerful - literally being a cad program adapt...

Re: Corebook Errata

Still oft-topic, but FL wrote : The books were printed some months ago. The errata has only a handful of very minor edits. […] But yes, we will likely print more books fairly soon, with these typos fixed. ... and I don't have any more news about this than that. Oh darn, now I am contributing to thi...

Re: Starship regular maintenance seems like overkill

Am I misunderstanding regular maintenance or is it just way over the top as it appears? No you've got the sum of it. Frankly man it's the first thing I said 'no f**king way' to. This is a great game with great design choices made throughout... that however is not one of them. It flies in the face o...

Re: Campaign idea: Alien: Voyager

In all honestly, a fraction of a degree deviance from the intended course over those kind of distances will result in massive course corrections. The idea is actually mentioned in the very first mass effect game at the very start, when Nilhus congratulates Joker on only managing to miss the intended...

Re: Corebook Errata

I've spoted something that looks like another typo on page 127. SUITS AND ARMOR table states that a piecie of IRC Mk.50 Compression Suit costs $15,000 and grants AGILITY –1, Air Supply 5. Just line below we see the IRC Mk.35 Pressure Suit for $2,000 with Air Supply 4. On the next page we can read t...

Re: About to buy Aliens RPG. Questions from a total Newb.

Yeah chariot was in the main book but then out because of the high page count, so instead we get Hope's last day. As for should you get it if you only have dnd experience, totally! Just understand that this is more about narrative play. Dnd (which I love) is halfway between been an rpg and s compute...

Re: Campaign idea: Alien: Voyager

I don't see how this person's weight being enough to throw off the gravity drive correlates with NDD. But yes, assuming gravity drives are something like 1 parsec a day, then every single day they'd be making an NDD roll and be utterly psychotic by the time the crew woke up. What would be fun about...

Re: ALIEN Isolation Crafting

I think Alien Isolation works as a great set piece in which to base an Alien game (cinematic or campaign even), but I would not look to replicate it's design choices. The save cabinet, while a great idea for that game and raising tension, would do nothing around a gaming table.
