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

In my running of CotG , however, I was lucky enought to have Clayton escape with loads of stuff and the PCs & Sotillo crew got away, so the meta-story will progress rather easily. I'll even put the Sotillo crew into DoW as potential replacement PCs to get the maximum use out of it all. I didn't pla...

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

Now, I personally prefer if the Darconis stuff gets off the Cronus in some way related to the PCs actions, experiences, and/or observations. To have it occur off-screen robs the players of some agency and immersion, so I always kept the "Colonial Marines were already here and stole some samples wit...

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

Just to add to the conversation... Signs of the Cronus being boarded prior to the Montero : - Pulse Rifle... If I remember, the pulse rifle the Montero crew can find have been created after the initial launch of the Cronus. Therefore, it shouldn't be on board. - The Junction A-1 Dock is damaged... c...
