Re: Character name suggestions

A lot of these are already ship names in the alien universe like Almayer and Tremolino I went back and removed ones I found via a search on the AVP wiki, though I was relieved to discover it wasn't "a lot" that I needed to remove. If there's something still on the list that's been used, a link to w...

Re: Character name suggestions

In the spirit of taking names from works written by Joseph Conrad, I also made a list of names I thought stood out that weren't already used to my knowledge in the Alien franchise. Funny enough, it made me realize how much the tradition is carried on by the RPG writers for Hope's Last Day and Chario...

Homebrew Class: Lowlife & new "Kid" rules

So I know there have been past threads discussing the merits of the "Kid" career, and I was one of those people who felt things should have been handled differently. I finally got around to writing an official "replacement" for the Kid career which, while mechanically is the same minus starting gear...

Re: Corebook Errata

I had a player recently point out to me that the Wilson character in Chariot of the Gods does not follow the rules correctly for character creation. The Key Attribute for Company Agent is Wits, and only your Key Attribute can be a 5 (or higher if an android) but Wilson has a 5 in Empathy instead. Is...

Re: Use of non-classic Xenomorph alien threats?

I took a stab at "The Thing" which I posted here but will also copy within this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/alienrpg/comments/h8esep/creature_information_for_the_thing_from_the_thing/ So I am actually looking to create this as part of a cinematic scenario that could theoretically fit in the Alien...

Re: Pregens – do you let all players read them all?

As a sort of side-tangent, I hope future cinematic scenarios published will write pre-gens so that players CAN read them over minus the personal agendas without feeling they have secret knowledge about a character they didn't pick.

Re: Panic Rolls : On Opposed Rolls and Sickness Rolls

As far as I can tell, technically you can panic from both of those situations. Perhaps in the case of the sickness roll, while they don't consciously know they've been infected, they feel they have to stave off /something/ and the resulting panic may be due to imagining the worst or just simply brea...

Potential planetary hazards inspired by real science

I rewatched the main Alien movies lately, and from the primordial climate both mysterious and deadly in the first Alien movie to the plummeting cold in Alien 3 to the silica sand storm in Prometheus, I've found characters dealing with "the elements" themselves to add quite a bit of drama to the narr...

Re: New to RPG

Hello! First, I'd like to echo what was already said from lupex and add my own thoughts. I'd suggest that, if you are the one facilitating the game (as the "Game Mother" in the Alien RPG here), err on having fewer players than more, as it may be a bit overwhelming to juggle a larger group. I can als...
