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...

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, ...

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...

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...
