Re: Map of Kua

I see that. You're after the folded handout map.
Absolutely silly that it isn't included in the book.
Unless FL releases it, best bet to to have it scanned.
And, hypothetically, once its scanned, if it isn't officially released, it wouldn't be legal to share it. :(

Silly that it's not available.

No. #2 – CINEMATIC GAMEPLAY: https://mailchi.mp/b859195205f2/alien-rpg-news-letter-2-cinematic-gameplay I want to know if it´s a pure coincidence, that in the Novel "Nostromo" there is a General named Montero? The same name, the ship in the first cinematic has??? :lol: Seems to be an clever hommage...

Re: Alien take on MYZ-engine

After listening to the podcast, I am struck with the evident idea that this system's mechanics is pre-made for a scenario of The Thing .* Hidden agendas would be the mechanic for becoming a thing, stress factors that both help and hurt... As a lifelong devoted d%/CoC/BRP   adherent, the MYZ system i...

Re: Map of Kua

If the map you want is in the book and you want it in digital format, why not just extract that page/those pages from the pdf and save them as a separate file? Doesn't alter the pdf at all, and provides separate "pages" for the maps you want. I don't know that an official release would have anything...

Re: Sets of paper miniatures and battle mats for Coriolis

Late addition to the topic, but still... We used images from the books, resized them, and printed them on card stock paper at the local office despot store. Quality job, less than 40$. Ink doesn't smear at all. But for added longevity, we took clear industrial packing tape to create a DIY laminate f...

Re: Alien take on MYZ-engine

Most likly lost in translation :) They explained that consumables (food, water, I guess mainly ammunition) is not counted bit by bit, but that you use a system just like in Forbidden Lands just without D8 / D10 / D12 Explaination: In Forbidden Lands you won`t count your arrows when shooting. You ar...

Re: Alien take on MYZ-engine

Just heard the Mud & Blood Interview (first 50 minutes) At first I thought "All Quiet on the Western Front", but than a lot of clearer and new details come out. Curious. I'm not one to go for podcasts much, but this comment intrigues me. What made you think of AQotWF? Consumable are abstracted Oh, ...

Re: First scrnario

(We'll skip using the "xenomorphs" demographic descriptor as a singular noun for now... ;)) If you are the GM and I am a player at your table, I have no problem with our first scenario not featuring the alien. Taken from that perspective, the opening of the film is a short scenario that features the...

Re: Alien take on MYZ-engine

The Gear Breaking mechanic is one that I hope is a part of the space truckers setting. Something breaks on a long haul, it needs to be jury rigged or something else has to be found/modified for the job. If not, it's yet another system I'd house rule that into. To me, that is one of the most revoluti...
