Re: Frontier War - Mission 3B Destroyer Of Worlds (Act.1 & 2)

Oh, nice! I was supposed to run DoW this weekend, but that fell through. Now I'll have more time preparing and using your game report as research. Thanks, _ArthurDallas_ :D

Re: Alien Rules in Other Settings?

A bit late for my reply, but to answer the « other settings »: I ran a game of Alien (w. Xenos) set around the year 800 with Vikings (the PCs). I changed very few rules (Comtech was modified, and I made some rules for weapons & armor was all really). And the players seemed to really enjoy it. That'...

Re: Alien Rules in Other Settings?

look here for the Outland 27 scenario (first scenario I've done) = https://forum.frialigan.se/viewtopic.php?f=103&t=6038 That looks to be a very interesting game to run :) Say, it's been years since I last watched Outland, but this story follows the plot and characters of that film pretty closely, ...

Re: CotG, DoW, & FW meta-plot (spoilers)

That's because I've yet started my Colonial Marine campaign, but one of the twist is that my players group of marine will actually be part of the section that will board the Cronus ;) See that as a prequel to DoW. That's another good tweak you've got there, AlienMobius :) I think that would go some...

Re: Dog Catcher weapons?

Hey, guys,

I'm gonna ask my noob question here since it's tangentially related to the OP subject.

So... are YT Dog Catchers the same as YT Commandos?`(I.e. the pulserifle company dudes from Alien3?). Is "Dog Catcher" just a nickname, or are these actually two different units?

Re: Pushing and Stress Dice

Yes, it does indeed say that. We played it that way to begin with, but then we stumbled upon/realized the rule that you don't have to roll all stress dice when you push. It is, however, quite possible (perhaps even likely) that we misread/misunderstood something on the fly and that said misunderstan...

Re: Pushing and Stress Dice

(Sorry, but I don't have the book with me and can't reference, but,) the way my group has been playing it, and which we thought was correct was like this: You roll your skill test and if you didn't roll a Facehugger you have the option to push the roll. When pushing, you get to reroll all Attribute ...

CotG - What Ava knows

Hey all, For my running of the CotG a few weeks ago, I did a pseudoscientific-yet-dumbing-down info-dump for Ava to expose to the PCs concerning what happened on LV-1113 and the research that lead to the VERY quick developing of a vaccine. My players enjoy these kinds of pseudoscientific discussions...
