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

We're discussing the vessel the outline of which can be seen in the plans in the first post. I doubt that's the refinery... I am aware of what is being discussed. And you are correct that the deck plans at the beginning of the thread are not the refinery. The massive size of the ship is due to a mi...

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

 the absolutely smegging stupendous size of the ship.
The Nostromo is essentially a tug boat. The staggering size of what is seen in the film that you refer to is the oil refinery they are towing.

Re: Costs not in the core book (fuel, air, lodging etc)

You aren't overthinking it. It's a glaring absence in the book. Space station docking fees, refueling, ship resupply of food, etc ad astra. For our games, we've adapted these things from Traveller and Coriolis. But it would have been nice to have had a paragraph dedicated to them since they are the ...

Re: Printer Friendly Character Sheets?

I'd suggest some readers, but I'd probably receive another mod warning because evidently, I was the only transgressor here. So my suggestions won't appear here again. Mod. I haven't given anyone a warning (to give someone a warning is a moderator tool). If I would have given you  a warning you would...

Re: Printer Friendly Character Sheets?

Pdf readers have the tools built into most pdf readers, certainly Adobe's free one (as I am using).

You may be a good cook, and have been for two decades, but for this meal, you can't seem to find the bloody pantry.

Mod. Please stop this "bantering" before it escalates to something else.

Re: Vacuum + Freezing Effects

At least in the game, it is called "Cinematic Explosive Decompression" and not just "Explosive Decompression". Acknowledging the difference plays well with me.  8-) I doubt, that Fria Ligan will follow my suggestion about this term. :D Ah. My misreading. I saw the term and superimposed it in my vis...

Re: Printer Friendly Character Sheets?

Until we have "Printer Friendly" versions saying "remove the background layer" on a pdf is like me telling you to make an au jus and then hiding the meat and recipe book on how to do just that. It's not at all like that, but if you feel that way, then do it yourself fixes evidently aren't what you ...

Re: Vacuum + Freezing Effects

 I think that the "Cinematic Explosive Decompression", that's scientifically nonsense, but is fitting into the setting. I grew up in Hunstsville, Alabama in the 1970s. My neighbors were folks like Dr. Konrad Dannenberg, and almost everyone's dad (as a schoolyard tease goes) actually was a rocket sc...

Re: Printer Friendly Character Sheets?

Until otherwise, you can always remove the pdf background and then print the character sheet.

I've printed a half dozen in such a manner and it works well enough.
