Re: Missing interesting factor in Alien RPG

The Alien RPG CRB is originally set in 2180.
Chariots of the Gods is 2183 and the CMOM is in 2184.

The Xeno-Zip is post those dates according to the lore I'm reading. Hence, does not exist yet.

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: Panic Rules Intentions?

Another faction believes that getting another Panic Result will end it due to the wording "replaces a previous one", thus if the Character later get's another Panic Table Result, it replaces Trembles with the new result, so say if they roll Drop Item, the -2 AGI immediately ends. And this "faction"...

Re: Panic Rules Intentions?

Hi, We had the same discussion in my group at first. I ended up asking a few questions and got several answers from Dave Semark (Effekt Podcast, Alien RPG Writing Team). He was very kind and patient and pretty much answered all the questions I had. I ended with a better understanding of each Panic S...

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...
