Re: Space Trucker Campaign Ideas

I think I'm going to let my campaign sort of develop naturally. I'm lucky in that I have the type of players who tend to latch onto something and follow it to see where it leads.

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

I don't see Alien having Marxist themes at all. It probably has some anti-military industrial complex themes and definitely a dystopian view on corporations run amuck but it doesn't advocate for any alternatives. It does have feminist themes though I think in the first movie it's mostly an accident....

Re: What’s the definition of USCSS?

I've seen it written out as United States Commercial Star Ship which sounds about right to me. I think the corebook may have it that way as well.

Re: Upcoming books?

Colonial Marines supplement/ guide/ thingo. Nothing announced beyond that as far as I've heard. They also announced a cinematic adventure focusing on Marines. I think they're both coming in summer 2020 or thereabouts. A campaign would be nice. How to play in cinematic mode is great but how making t...

Re: NOSTROMO – the Accurate Deck Plans (IMO, anyway...)

I need to rewatch the movie I think because I don't remember Ripley going down the ladder on the way to see Kane . It's in the extended version; right before she gets slapped by Lambert. This is probably why I didn't remember the ladder. I've seen the extended version and like the little bits it ad...

Re: NOSTROMO – the Accurate Deck Plans (IMO, anyway...)

Another point of reference - in the DLC for the Alien Isolation game, you can freely roam around the Nostromo (well, until you're murdered, but that's another story). If you walk around the bridge you'll find not only is it cramped, it's quite small. Walking up the windows, they are just slightly t...

For our games, we've adapted these things from Traveller and Coriolis.
I have Coriolis and didn't think to check it for these types of things...

Re: Costs not in the core book (fuel, air, lodging etc)

I think we can assume that if the players are independent, then those cost is equal to the living expense cost (p160) and the lease cost (p168) so if a group of players have an G Class ship that would have a lease cost of roughly $6,500 a week and plus $600 for basic living expenses for a crew of 6...

Costs not in the core book (fuel, air, lodging etc)

More or less what I said. Assuming my players decide to go somewhat independent when we start our game in a bit over 2 weeks I wondered if I should track this. We know how much a lease on a ship costs and how much spare parts cost but not much else.  How much does fuel cost? I wondered if it shouldn...

Re: Alien films

It's in the special edition though to be honest I never liked that line of dialogue.
