Hope’s Last Day- Character Question (spoilers but GM Only section...)

Quick question.... Do the other PCs know Holroyd is an android? In some play throughs I saw online the agendas were a little different and his android status was a secret but I don’t see anything in the scenario from the book that mentions it is a secret. Is it optional or did I miss this somewhere?

Re: Never Tried a Tabletop RPG - But Group wants to try this!

What about PC deaths? Are there any general guidelines for handling this? This seems like an RPG that is MUCH more prone to PC death. How do you avoid players feeling left out when they die? In a campaign I am sure you can just introduce a new character, but what about one-shots? Do people feel left...

Re: Never Tried a Tabletop RPG - But Group wants to try this!

Thanks again for the tips. Anyone found any “Alien” soundboards for cool sound effects to incorporate for ambience? I found a cool iOS motion tracker app to copy the movie sound effects to add to the mood when appropriate but it would be cool to have a soundboard to choose from like alien snarls or ...

Re: Never Tried a Tabletop RPG - But Group wants to try this!

Thanks for the tips so far guys. I am loving the advice so far. Short of reading the whole core rule book all at once, are there any key chapters I should focus on to get down pat to enable some early sessions? I am thinking a minimum of Chapters 1-5, 8? And then just appropriate parts of the other ...

Never Tried a Tabletop RPG - But Group wants to try this!

I was too tempted by everything I saw and pre-ordered the Alien RPG. Last time I played D&D was around 20 years ago and only once or twice. However, our group(usually focuses on modern board games) is interested in trying this out which means I would probably be GM. This book has a lot of exciting c...
