Re: NOSTROMO – the Accurate Deck Plans (IMO, anyway...)

Having read through the Alien script, it mentions A, B, C, and E levels (though it sometimes refer to them as "decks". unsure if this is just an inconsistency in writing, or if there is a difference). Presumable there is a D level squeezed in there somewhere. Maybe I just missed it.  In addition it ...

Re: Artificial Characters

I old, old, old (old, old, old) Mutant, the big difference between a robot and a human was that a robot didn't heal naturaly, and you used repair instead of medicin to "heal" them. 

I really liked that. Not a huge thing, but pretty flavourful.

I'd probably do something along those lines.

Re: NOSTROMO – the Accurate Deck Plans (IMO, anyway...)

Depending on what you count as "1 level", of course. You bring up the gear compartement. But one room being that big doesn't mean each level is that big. Instead, that specific compartment could instead spann several  levels.  . Did you check the deck plans on the first page of this thread, especia...

Re: NOSTROMO – the Accurate Deck Plans (IMO, anyway...)

This picture actually raises more concerns with me Re: external ship size versus set size. I think at most the Nostromo could hold 3 decks. That front landing gear is huge compared to the bridge and we know Brett died in the landing gear room. (I thought it was a cargo bay until very recently hones...

Re: NOSTROMO – the Accurate Deck Plans (IMO, anyway...)

As for the towing thing, well you see tiny little tug boats haul huge cargo ships into port in the real world. . You see tiny little tug boats by swarms nudge huge cargo ships in and out of dock, mainly. For the long haul ... it tends to look a bit different. Yeah, but that's in water. In space, it...

Re: NOSTROMO – the Accurate Deck Plans (IMO, anyway...)

 3 or 4 decks!? =D That bridge is supertiny compared to the rest of the ship, and we can see that they haven't exaclty splurged on cealing height ;) https://66.media.tumblr.com/e2cedb97b182cad685c6e26617657665/tumblr_nkkcu0HBhL1slmcluo1_1280.jpg Definatley more than just 3-4 decks. Maybe not quite s...

Re: Treasures. How much to give

It uses the tables in the GM book. However, I find this treasure system quite random. Sometimes it will give you a few rubbish items of little value, and then other times suddenly an art piece worth 100sp. That's part of the fun though, isn't it? =D "I've been through the goblin castle, and all I g...

Re: Treasures. How much to give

 Well... if you give them something valuable, but that can't be splitt (like a magical artefact) then you have created "Drama" =)
Just lean back and watch the palyers debate.
And if they decide to make it simply for themsleves and go sell it, then you have the next adventure: finding a buyer.

Re: "Only damaged by Magic" question

I would let magical weapons harm the creature. I've always liked that concept that regular weapons just pass right through it (or bounce of, what ever is appropriate), but that a magical weapon actually connects. Like oldie DnD (didn't like that they changed it to just resistance) or that scene in L...
