Re: Question about Talents

I am not English native speaker but I (and my game group) could understand that the "Once per turn" (or round) reference may imply that you can use the talent in the next turn or round. If not, maybe, it could have been used a reference like: "in a single turn" or "in a single round you can...". On...

Re: What about "Mercy of the Icons"

The podcast is really very good  :D but to save you having to sit through an hour of chat:
a) This year
b) Probably not
c) No, but the acquisition may well bring renewed energy to the franchise.

Re: Question about Talents

The Health talent just give your a total health two points about the strength attribute.  If a a talent does not mention how often it can be used, it’s probably a permanent effect. Where it does mention once per..., well, then whatever it says is the limit.

Re: Hopes Last Day Armoury

In our original draft it said "The armoury is behind a heavy sealed door (HP 12, Armor 4). Only three people have a keycard to access the armoury: Supervisor Simpson, Civil Marshall Kurtz, and Weyland-Yutani Chief Administrator Nolan Cale." But you are the GM

Re: Character "nationalities"

I don’t know that it’s an anachronism, Gibson was writing the script as the USSR was crumbling, so I don't think he saw the UPP as a a continuation of the USSR but a replacement for it. Even now China has a surging economy but is still a one party state. Russia seems to be ensuring that only one par...

Re: Character "nationalities"

I suppose that, when talking about Germany, it's supposed to be East Germany. So I suppose that there is a West Germany according to the dystopian nature of the "Alien" universe. If Germany was totally UPP, I would suppose that USSR won the Cold War... but according to the book, it seems that the C...

Re: Character "nationalities"

Reading the descriptions in the book, I realise that not all the extra-national identities are the same. The UA are more of a federal structure than the 3WA and UPP.  The later two operate under a far more united structure: Look at the militaries: though the United *States* Marine Corps are the larg...

Re: Character "nationalities"

I think people might consider themselves of national and extra-national identities, just as I (until after tomorrow at least) consider myself English, British and European. In the 2180s I will be both English, and a proud citizen of the Three Worlds Empire (first into deep space, stick that in your ...

Re: How dose Quick Draw - Rapid Fire combo works?

I have not yet had that tested by players, but my assumption is from the pistol or rifle TABLES, nothing from the heavy weapons table, even if it has rifle in the name.
