Have different factions within the companies use different verbiage as a puzzle for the players to sort out

Re: Preping & planning the LOST WORLDS campaign

Just know you're not alone in self-doubt and many people do struggle with individual realities when trying to create shared fun experiences for groups of folks. You know you - and it sounds like some more honest self-assessment there where you have fenced in areas you want to make sure don't drag do...

Re: Preping & planning the LOST WORLDS campaign

Imposter syndrome or the Dunning-Kruger effect strike again... "I am not a good GM" If you stick to facts, not undefined "feelings", then you can help beat this recurring curse: Do you have players? Do they come back for more? Is everyone having fun? Are you working extra to make...

Re: Preping & planning the LOST WORLDS campaign

I am at work but have a few minutes to toss in a thought. When I am prepping - I am looking for the following things for each encounter: 3 transitions (or ways) *in* to each encounter so that I can shuffle and shift them to occur in different orders more smoothly which ever way the players go.

Well... its hard to overstate how helpful those are to rounding out the stories and providing cool st...

Re: DMLA-A-265's Dropships

One thought is to check the Sulaco write up in ALIEN: THE BLUEPRINTS. Also, USCMC doctrine can change over time. The USCM Tech Manual has a whole section on the structure of USCMC which is considered pretty high level canon. It sounds like a lot of detective work could sort it, but I am at work and ...

Re: DMLA-A-265's Dropships

Depends on how cash-strapped and beholden to the megacorps you want the USCMC to really be. I tend to go with "they never have enough" ... the Nostromo shipped with one working escape shuttle instead of two for example. Plus, you're asking about vehicles - the number 10 might mean "wo...
