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

Ah, ok. So maybe most of the facility is underground, while only the top levels are abandoned? There could be traces of a battle, perhaps some dead humans (earlier visitors from the Company?). The captain might be a part of the rebellion or working against it.

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

Well, since the planet is surrounded by an electromagnetic barrier, the Company must be hiding something. The captain probably knows what it’s all about. A few possiblities: 1. It’s an old penal colony or a high security prison. The Company keep some of their enemies here. Perhaps U. P. P. prisoners...

Re: Campaign Mode... some thoughts

I agree. Dealing with the fact that most players will expect an encounter with the xenomorphs is hard to avoid. A way to get around that in a campaign could be the questions I posted on page 3 in this thread. Another, perhaps simpler way, could be to consider three core themes in the Alien franchise...

Re: Personal agendas with stronger ties to the Company

You are most welcome, Lukbehindu. I guess that the bigger picture in most campaigns is more or less corporate. To break down the dystopian megacorp capitalism, a core theme in this setting, to an individual level is, I think, cruisial. I might post an additional list later on, perhaps with another t...

Re: Space Trucker Campaign Ideas

To answer the question raised by ILKAIN, I certainly don’t think you are doing anything wrong. However, it puts the truckers in another situation. Of course, their profit might be bigger, but I would also say that they get some negative attention from corporate representatives who don’t like freelan...

Re: Räls + sandbox = storybox

Jag tycker att en metaplot bör vara tydlig, komprimerad och inte utspridd över flera böcker. Det viktiga ska inte vara någon annanstans, i en annan produkt. Kan man inte vara komprimerad behöver man, som jag ser det, skala av. Ett bra koncept går att beskriva kortfattat. Är det krångligt är det dåli...

Re: Räls + sandbox = storybox

Ah, då är jag med dig. Filmgenren film noir innehåller ju mycket av detta. Grandville, som jag bara har bläddrat i, verkar vara en ångpunkig djurfabel med film noir-teman, alltså dyster Bogart-detektiv i en korrupt värld med moralisk gråskala. Det tål att funderas på hur man kan lyfta fram den här g...

Re: Räls + sandbox = storybox

Jag håller med om det mesta du skriver, Byrax. Innan jag själv ger mig på att besvara frågorna (jag har delvis andra svar), vad är det du tycker hade kunnat vara mer ”grandvillianskt”? Hade man gjort Hindenburg ännu mer ångpunkigt hade det kanske inte varit så mycket Mutant kvar, eller? Jag tror att...

Re: Rälsat äventyr + sandbox = storybox

I min storybox där polisen ingår har jag faktiskt med en hel del av det du beskriver. Man kan, som du skriver, göra mycket av ett mord. Jag är inspirerad av 1800-talets New York och London, som är väldigt färgstarka miljöer med speciell och bisarr brottslighet. Kriminella nätverk, korruption, näring...
