Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

Mr Oldtimer is right, and just to clarify, “You use MIGHT to lift, pull, push, or hold tight to something” (page 51) not to attack.

Re: Is the thematic core of the Alien franchise Marxist and Feminist?

The interesting thing is that what is being described is corporatism and not capitalism.  There is a big difference.

Re: How do you kill an Enemy?

Hold on. You break an enemy, that’s the end of the combat. They may be dead or incapacitated anyway, but even if their crit is a minor one, they are not getting up again until your players characters  have moved on.  And this is one of the quickest, deadliest combat systems I have every played.

Re: Borrowing from Coriolis..
