Re: A Couple of Noob Questions

So, I backed the T2K4e kickstarter and I'm wondering if Aliens uses the same system mechanics. Anyone know? ProTip, always read through the KS article :) "The core rules of the game build on the Year Zero Engine (used in award-winning RPGs such as ALIEN, Tales From the Loop, Forbidden Lands and Mut...

Re: Location of 61 Cygni & LV-038 (DoW background)

Ok, I'm gonna ask again since I'm apparently blind. (Not, I don't have my core or CMCM books with me; apologies if this is clearly described somewhere in those books). I'm reading Destroyer of Worlds , where one of the characters has a "Yaophora Station" mentioned in their background. Is there any i...

Re: History of the ALIEN Universe

I don't believe that "keeping the mystery" is the only way to play the game, but it is certainly a very strong foot to stand on. Alternatively, you could, for instance, build a campaign around having the players (if not necessarily their PCs) explore and experience the grandeur of the (possibly hous...

Re: Alien covenant was pretty great

Personally, I'm assuming, perhaps naively, that Scott is playing tricks with our expectations; that David is NOT responsible for the (clearly ages old) derlict on LV-426 (we're just ment to think so); that the Aryan Übermench Engineers are NOT the same as the SpaceJockey people/culture, but that the...

Re: Location of 61 Cygni & LV-038 (DoW background)

The PDF of the Map Marker Pack scales up well - which I prefer that to putting wear and tear on the physical copy. Bottom center of the map next to "Trailward" arrow for Sector 87 / Origae-6. Again, thank you, sir! Again, there it is, right there :o It appears that I'm very bad at this map-gazing.....

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

I hope you are right about HoD, and it's a trip to Draconis to confront the threat there.
Turns out I was! :D

Here's a Gaska quote from September: "Heart of Darkness is the next Cinematic Scenario. This will close out the 26 Draconis Saga trilogy of scenarios."

Re: What's next (after Colonial Marines Manual)?

I just stumbled upon this interview from September 24th: https://www.tomshw.it/culturapop/interview-to-andrew-e-c-gaska-author-of-alien-rpg-colonial-marines-operations-manual/ Here's a Gaska quote about future projects: "Heart of Darkness is the next Cinematic Scenario.

Thank you, sir! Which source is this from? I must have stared at this a dozen times and not seen it.... ALIEN RPG Maps and Markers pack Yup, there it is... (ChariotOfThe)GodsDamnItAllToHeck... (Do anyone know of a good high-res image version of this map?) And, while we're at it... Origae-6/"Planet ...

Location of 61 Cygni & LV-038 (DoW background)

Hey y'all, I give up. I have read and read and read, scoured and scoured and scoured the various Middle Heavens maps, and I do not get it... Where is 61 Cygni located on the map? The UPP just annexed the system, and it is presumably very close to Kruger 60, but I cannot find the place anywhere. I am...
