Re: Chariot of the Gods Characters

I think you've misunderstood. They do use the same rules. When you're creating a character from scratch for Campaign play, you choose one talent from your Career to start with. You can only learn more talents (Career or General) as you gain and spend XP. You do not start with two talents.

Re: Trying to make sense of "Xenomorphs"

No, that's not how circular logic works, either. Giger created the design. Scott interpreted that design to bring it to film. The concept art - and Giger's intent - are irrelevant to canon, because Giger didn't make the movie. Scott did. There are two possible conclusions to this. If we go the full ...

Re: Black goo?

The spores were neomorphic motes, from neomorphic egg sacs, both of which are represented in the core book. The black goo is different.

Re: Trying to make sense of "Xenomorphs"

Again, besides the point.  The fact is it was something the people who made the first film had taken into consideration when they were making the first film.  It wasn't created for the third film. Whether you think the concept is present in the first film or not doesn't mean they didn't create it a...

Re: Black goo?

Contact with the black goo is a Sickness roll with Virulence 6. Ingestion of the black goo is a Sickness roll with Virulence 12. So simply coming into contact with it is enough to turn somebody, but swallowing or inhaling it (were it to somehow become aerosolized) is much worse. Likely injecting pur...

Re: Ammo and Tracking

I'm honestly a little surprised ammo wasn't a resource like food, air and water. You could do that and then just have a 1 on the stress die automatically lower it by 1. This does mean you risk players running totally out of ammo relatively quickly but it is a thought. If I had to guess I'd imagine ...

Re: Mission Generator and economics of ships

In system jobs aren't that common in the job generator... 11/36. the odds of two in the same system outside the core? 121/1296 or about 9.34%. 3 in same? under 0.02%  When you get to bigger places with 2-3 jobs, it's not quite as bad... Notice though that there's no detail on how often that list re...

Re: Mission Generator and economics of ships

Not really. My concern that the job table is inadequate to properly fund the frontier career if you want to own your ship. If we assume the average job is 27k like previously posted, the Corvus requires 28k a month to pay back the 2% of it’s total value. It’s going to take 40 days just for the tran...
