Re: The Betty

It would be nice if future Alien RPG installments included stats for the Mantis-class like the Betty, since Ripley did claim it was "older than her" (which means it'd have been available since Alien) and would be a nice nod to a movie that otherwise can't (or shouldn't) be included in the RPG materi...

Re: Aliens. Solo campaign play, Ongoing.

While I have nothing to offer about the vast amount of content you've made, given the setting, you might be interested in this if you haven't seen it already:

Re: Stellar type data - real world - near stars

And later they developed warp 9 which travels at the rate of plot convenience =p Yeah, among other things, their higher use of warp factors isn't very consistent at all. Still, I thought the general comparison was interesting perspective, and I think the idea of neurological distortion disorder in ...

Re: Stellar type data - real world - near stars

One way to consider limitations is literal travel distance over time. Let's take the extremes into consideration as hypotheticals: The slowest FTL number we're given in the Alien RPG, noted as the speed achievable for the first FTL ships (page 150) is 10 times the speed of light, and if I did my mat...

Character name suggestions

Hey all! So as I've been slowly tinkering with various one-shot cinematic scenarios (specifically one that'll be based on The Thing), I've come up with a list of possible last names for potential characters (both PC and NPC) that would hail from the various governmental powers. In the spirit of the ...

Re: Character "nationalities"

I was actually under the impression that the UPP was meant as an analogue to the Soviet Union , the UA to the US, and the more conglomerated nations as a whole being a parallel to the megacorps like Weyland-Yutani. With that said, I'm sure that nationalities also exist -- someone in the UPP could ea...

Re: How much do Weyland-Yutani know?

In some ways, I think Prometheus was attempting to tackle that struggle of an "Alien" movie without "the alien" and it's a sort of damned if you do, damned if you don't situation: without the aliens, people complain that they're not in there, but with them, you stifle what the franchise as a whole c...

Re: How much do Weyland-Yutani know?

To sort of add or provide a parallel thought to what's been said already, I'd say you could have it both ways. On one hand, the company as a whole probably knows everything, or at least most everything, possibly with those high in the ranks (like Michael Bishop) exemplifying that sort of knowledge. ...

Re: CoTG in one 5 hours session - possible?

I feel the intent is for it to be played in a single session, and while the length of a session can be variable, I'd think 4-6 hours would be reasonable length of time considered for a game night. With that said, both times I've experienced this game (once as a player, and once as a GM), the third a...

Re: Space Trucker Campaign Ideas

Also, as with any campaign, I think it's personally important to highlight the "alien" aspect. Maybe that just means the titular xenomorph features in the campaign in some fashion, but it may also mean: "Alien" (foreign) people to the players: dealing with varying groups and individuals with starkly...
