Re: Ranks for crew on ships etc.

The interesting thing with your list though is that while Captain (or Commanding Officer, or CO ... or rather, since this is a civilian ship, "Master"), XO (again, military - civilian equivalent is "First Mate" or "Chief Mate"), Navigator, Science Officer, Chief Engineer, and Engineering Technician...

Ranks for crew on ships etc.

I was just going through the cast of Alien and pulling out the jobs each person had for populating a ship and thought it might be useful for everyone.  Captain (Dallas) Executive Officer or XO (Kane) Warrant Officer (Ripley) Navigator (Lambert) Science Officer (Ash) Chief Engineer (Parker) Engineeri...

Re: Official Errata

According to DriveThruRPG it looks like these changes were already present in the PDF since late November last year. Is that right? Or should I look for an update soon?

Re: CM-9OS Corvus Deckplan

I used Inkscape. Which is a free Vector image software. Takes a bit of time to get your head round it. But you’re generally working with basic shapes so it’s not too bad. I create the walls in one layer. The floors in another. Then fill in the negative spaces on another layer. Then add icons, doors...

Re: CM-9OS Corvus Deckplan

https://m.imgur.com/gallery/NabBMvc I’ve had a go at doing it. Took a lot longer than I planned. But wanted to make something decent enough others might make use of it. It was tricky fitting the Hanger in such a small ship. Hence why the reactor is further forward. Got it all in there though. Out o...

Re: Travel Times

I had to read the rules a few times but as far as I can see stasis means you have zero NDD effects but there's no requirement that you enter stasis during FTL, you'll just be rolling on the NDD table after a Parsec of travel if you don't.  Hence it seems reasonable to assume that a ship would spin u...

Re: Campaign Mode... some thoughts

I'd like to point out that while the game predates Alien: Resurrection, that film still offers a 4th campaign mode, essentially space privateers/mercs. As we know, Joss Whedon used that film as a test ground for what he later created as Firefly so that crew is there, miscellaneous mercs out to do a...

Re: Corebook Errata

Really small point because I worked it out, but I was briefly confused when I first read it.  On page 103  one of the things that increases stress level is  A Scientist in your team fails to use the Analysis talent The correct phrase would be 'fails when using'. 'Fails to use' implies stress will be...

Re: With Covid-19 isolation can I ask if a player-only PDF can be made available?

Ha ha, clearly it wasn't half price when I posted this!

Thanks.

I still think it's worth considering such a cut down version for sale.
