Pushing rolls and stress; specific situation

Scenario: A character has a stress level of 1 and have just made a skill check with 5 skill dice and 1 stress die. The stress die is the only one showing a 6 and now the player wishes to push the roll hoping for extra 6s. The player grabs the 5 skill dice that failed, but should he/she add 1 or 2 st...

Re: Consumables

You asked for my thoughts. If you aren't interested then I'd suggest not asking next time.  Or we could discuss our differing opinions (and they are just opinions not facts in this case) since this is a forum designed to facilitate discussion about Fria Ligan games.  I want to apologise because rea...

Re: Consumables

I would never describe the Forbidden Lands as goofy. The FL are a bloody dangerous place. Cannibilism, slavery, human sacrifice, body horror, and worse. Scary place. As to Alien and consummables it makes perfect sense to me. In the movies you never see a person counting up exact rations and bean co...

Re: Use of Miniatures with the rules

I know that Coriolis (another SciFi game using this ruleset as base) includes rules and guidelines for using maps and miniatures. If Alien will include this as well I wouldnt know but id be surprised if it didnt. And even if it doesnt, theres nothing stopping you from using maps and models anyway! O...

Re: Consumables

While i like the concept as it adds tension and can become a real issue, im having a hard time getting around the narration of it. If a character carefully packs and rations her food (etc), i cant really see how it could potentially run out the first day without warning. Similarily, another charact...

Re: Consumables

I think it's important to only use the consumables system when interesting or dramatically correct. If you can plan your spacewalk or hike, have nothing weird happen, and finish on time, you shouldn't even have to roll. You're supposed to roll for air every turn, so how could you ever spend a shift...

Re: Consumables

If you don't like the consumable system, skip it. Just let one "supply rating" be one ration. Personally I like the consumable rule. You only use it when the conditions are a little bit extreme. People eat different amount or food can go bad. Also, you normally get the average amount of days worth ...

Re: Consumables

But you are not suppose to track consumables at all times, only when the supplies are scarce, so not when you are on a spaceship or in a colony (unless there is some problems that causes that particular consumables to be scarce). So on most session you don't need to keep track of the food and water...
