Re: Email newsletter

For gmail, checked Spam folder and "All Mail"... nothing. I even have FL as a known contact. :-( My two other email addresses (an .edu and a posteo.net) don't have spam folders, only flags for questionable emails. But nothing in any of them. We're sad Alien fans. ;) EDIT: If I change something in my...

Email newsletter

Between the two folks in my house (I don't think the cats have signed up to the Alien newsletter, but maybe... one of them was named Jonesy when he was adopted), there are three email addresses signed up for the ALIEN-RPG newsletter. Add a couple more from the playing group and none of us have recei...

Survival

I've been in grim spiritual ecstatic love with Giger's art ever since I was five and my brother bought Emerson Lake & Palmer's album. That cover stuck a psychic scalpel into my third eye and began its (ahem) brain salad surgery. By the time the film came out, I didn't yet know who Ridley Scott was, ...

Considering it doesn't, that would compel a further suspension of disbelief.  :o

Digitized Icon Deck

Over at the (thriving!) G+ group, Jon Boylan did some amazing work in digitizing the Icon deck. After Nils gave a nod of approval, Jon posted the deck in all it's digitized glory. :) The Digital Icon Deck    (Dropbox link) From Jon: The digitized Icon Deck is complete! It features ONLY the 36 Icon c...

Re: Favorite music you remember from the 80s

LOVE Shriekback. And Manhunter. Others: Bauhaus Sonic Youth The Smithereens Cocteau Twins Dead Can Dance Dead Kennedys Bad Brains Talking Heads [pretty much the entirety of the Repo Man soundtrack] (geez... from this list, you'd never guess I spent the latter 80s hitchhiking the path of the Grateful...

Re: [Genlab Alpha] Cold-blooded critters

Thank you both. Having lived somewhere that winter temperatures frequently reach the magic number where F & C are the same (-40), I perhaps think about cold weather effects more than others. I was going to run with the mutagen DNA aspect, so Fenhorn's reasoning is sound. As most of his reasoning her...

[Genlab Alpha] Cold-blooded critters

Perhaps I'm missing something, but I cannot find anything in the book about how reptiles would be able to remain active in winter. Without giving anything away, there is a reptile character in the campaign who do this and that throughout the winter, but I'm perplexed as to how a cold-blooded reptile...

Re: Premonition ... and observation

From my many years of GMing Cthulhu games, I'd just ask all players to roll the dice without telling them what it's for. If there was a relevant success, share the information, if not, just let the players ruminate about what they might—or might not—have just attempted.
