Re: Love the work put into this

Yeah, I understand I just wish the more "out there" Alien types were separate from the more believable ones. As to me, the number of variants the old EU came up with was beyond ridiculous. Oh yes, it got a bit bonkers with the extended universe stuff no doubt. :) They stopped short of Badger Xenomo...

Old/Unreliable Ships House Rule?

Obviously most ships in the Alien Universe have some wear and tear on them and rarely do you see a pristine ship. I was thinking of applying a varying percentage discount to the total cost of a ship if it had a lot of mileage on the clock, or if its manufacturers have taken a few shortcuts with its...

Re: Love the work put into this

What I love about this book is that they've taken influences from all the Canon sources and as far as I can tell there is a sprinkling from some of the older extended universe novels and some of the older computer games. Royal Jelly was a major commodity in the comics and novels and is even mentione...

Re: Authority Talent for Colonial Marshals

If you take that talent, then you probably don't spend any of your starting skill points on Manipulation, but instead you spend one on Command and then when you get experience you can spend them on Command, which he also can use to Manipulation. He might start with only one Skill Level, but in the ...

Authority Talent for Colonial Marshals

This Talent lets the Marshal exchange their Manipulation skill for Command when attempting to bend someone to their will. The problem I see with this is that Command isn't a Key Skill for Colonial Marshals, so their Command skill is always going to be lower, at least on Character creation? Seems to ...

Re: Question about xenomorphs origin?

As this is the Official Alien RPG, they've had to include all the Xenomorphs, Engineers etc from the Films because that is considered official Canon. That said, while paying tribute to the Canon, the entry for Engineers, Xenomorphs etc are deliberately vague about concrete origins for anything, whic...

Re: Idea for random space travel encounters

Page 341 "Job Generator" has some Complications for space Travel and Page 351 onwards has some random Encounters for Star Systems, Surface and Colony, however you've done a fine job of coming up with your own hazards!

Re: Flash grenades / stun baton - 'stunned'

Sorry, but in the PDF that is out now there is no mentioning what Stunned means. Therefore I think that it will also not be mentioned in the book that I get today (Yeah!!!). That is a little bit sad. And is it really that you lost all actions when stunned?  p. 321: If unsuccessful they are stunned ...

Re: Overkill Talent

Sorry to be a pain. :) If you're under the effects of Overkill due to a panic roll do you get a fresh set of actions for that turn or do you have to wait until your slow/fast actions refresh next turn?  Also I'm assuming is Overkill not subject to the usual rule of the effects of Panic only lasting...
