Re: Location of 61 Cygni & LV-038 (DoW background)

I'm reading Destroyer of Worlds , where one of the characters has a "Yaophora Station" mentioned in their background. Is there any indication anywhere in the Alien RPG material as to where that place might be? I gather it is not particularly important to the adventure, but my players are going to a...

Re: History of the ALIEN Universe

3. What is really the history of the Alien universe? I’m asking because that’s the topic here. A history usually includes a timeline. A timeline of what? Most of the history of the Alien universe was hinted at... then chopped... from Prometheus. What did the other Engineers say to the Sacrifice Eng...

Re: History of the ALIEN Universe

<snip> You describe the somewhat strange contradictions in the movies - I’m talking about the Engineers and the very tall fossilized Space Jockey. <snip> In my opinion, to GM Alien is more about keeping the mysteries alive than coming up with answers. <snip> I'd like to touch on these two points. F...

Re: Location of 61 Cygni & LV-038 (DoW background)

(Do anyone know of a good high-res image version of this map?) And, while we're at it... Origae-6/"Planet 4"? Huh? The PDF of the Map Marker Pack scales up well - which I prefer that to putting wear and tear on the physical copy. Bottom center of the map next to "Trailward" arrow for Sector 87 / Or...

Thank you, sir! Which source is this from? I must have stared at this a dozen times and not seen it....

Re: Cybernetics?

On page 222 of the core rule book, It mentions Hyderdyne systems a company that specializes in high end synthetics and cybernetic prosthetics . I don't see any cybernetics in the equipment section. So what's the best way to include Cybernetics? Does it make people stronger or faster? or should it s...

Re: XX121 lifespan.

Interpreting this instead as indicative of that this was the guiding intention behind the concept all along — let alone "proof" of it — would, to my mind at least, be reading a bit too much into it. Dan O'Bannon has said a lot over the years about the "intention" for ALIEN: * make a serious version...

Re: XX121 lifespan.

To wit, I have yet to see any contemporary material unequivocally stating that Giger was explicitly commissioned to design a creature that "carried traits of its host" in some way. Rather the other way around, if anything. And this being the case, I find categorical statements to the effect that th...

Re: Do Xenomorphs need to eat?

In ALIEN pre-production and novelisation, there are notes about how the growing xeno ripped into the ships food supply and ransacked it by tearing into it from an airduct running behind it. That also made the time out of hypersleep so much shorter for the crew having to stay up and find the beast. I...
