Re: The Game for Our Time

Wendal, I got the idea about the Ripley bloodline from the novel Sea of Sorrows and the Ripley descendant Alan Decker. It’s not the exact same idea, but similar. There is something about this bloodline. https://avp.fandom.com/wiki/Alan_Decker Since we also know that human DNA is a matter of Engineer...

Re: The Game for Our Time

Thanks, guys! You are most welcome to use my pandemic ideas. Some other ideas popped up as well: 4. The Company has been aware of the Ripley bloodline for some time. It has certain DNA segments that seem to come from an ancient, Sumerian bloodline. Perhaps it’s of a more recent Engineer origin than ...

Re: My idea for a small campaign

Loris, your premise seems quite action based, almost like a video game - go for that if that’s what you want. You also mention some ruins. Are there something, perhaps some kind of ancient secret, to discover for the PCs? Do you have an unexpected twist? A sensational Engineer artefact? Are there an...

Re: Räls + sandbox = storybox

Det är nog klokt att vara tydlig med som avses med de olika begreppen. Den mest renodlade sandboxen är ofta en avgränsad yta, i det typiska fallet en stad. Någon färdig story finns inte, utan det är istället något som förväntas uppstå när RP besöker olika platser i sandboxen. Zonen i År Noll är en s...

Re: A Campaign Idea

I have no idea if any colonial laws have been described in the Alien universe. But it seems very general and vague. What kind of laws are you thinking of? Couldn’t it just be some corporate rules? Or something regulated by contracts? I guess you could also work with some historical inspiration like ...

Re: The Game for Our Time

Well, this could be developed in many ways to fit the Alien setting. A few pandemic virus ideas came to my mind: 1. A very contagious virus is found on a remote but habitable world with a only a few colonies. The colonists will struggle to survive and their contacts with their host company will be c...

Re: Why the original Gigeresque vision still matters to the entire setting

Well, the Alien franchise has gone quite messy through the years with several directors, many comic books and numerous toys and other products. I started this thread to have a fresh look at the original Gigeresque aspect of Alien. I would say his biomechanical vision gives us the possibility not to ...

Re: Why the original Gigeresque vision still matters to the entire setting

I agree that the xenomorphs, the Engineers, and their technology are integrated parts of a larger system. Going back to the logics of the original movie with the space jockey and the biomechanical derelict is probably the best way to be to true to the Gigeresque vision. I have expanded on this quite...

Re: What was Weyland-Yutani up to? (Story help)

Well, you are most welcome! Here are my creative suggestions: 1. A new, powerful android prototype, able to predict the future. Or maybe able to find Engineer locations. Or both. Still not a very accurate prototype, but the potential is huge. It might develop over time, as machine learning often doe...

Re: What was Weyland-Yutani up to? (Story help)

Well, can’t the PCs just go to the facility to find something or someone important to them or the Company? Maybe they have recieved some kind of message or even an invitation before arriving. And when they arrive, they soon realize that something is wrong in the facility. A rebellion, a failed exper...
