Re: Using xenomorphs as a biological weapon

I Would think of the Xenomorph as a Bioweapon, as some kind of last resort weapon, or if it's publicly known, as kind of threat like Nukes are today. But Xenomorphs as an equlient to Nukes would RPG-wise kind of boring. Because one thing that makes them scary is that PC's don't know how to handle t...

Re: Using xenomorphs as a biological weapon

How long do Xenos live without people to eat? Could it be that ovomorphing is a “hibernating” stage to wait for more food? Perhaps the plan is simply to wait 7ntil the Xenos have killed everything then starved. Then simply flame the eggs? Or perhaps they want to make the Xenos more controllable, li...

Using xenomorphs as a biological weapon

Hi! If anyone watches the Alien franchise, you know that Weyland wants the xenomorph to use as a biological weapon and they couldn't since Ripley and friends prevent that (fortunately). So when I saw the first Alien movies I accepted that premise. It's ok for me. But now, we are playing a campaign a...

Re: Question about Talents

Ah, ok... I understand now.

Thanks.

So all of them are permanent. I understood it wrong because I don't know where I read it that talents could be used only once per session.

Re: Question about Talents

I am not English native speaker but I (and my game group) could understand that the "Once per turn" (or round) reference may imply that you can use the talent in the next turn or round. If not, maybe, it could have been used a reference like: "in a single turn" or "in a single round you can...". On ...

Question about Talents

Hi! I have two questions. Maybe the first is solved in other threads: - When a talent tells: "Once per Turn", "once per round", etc. How many times are supposed to be used for? Because I thought that you can use a talent once per act (Cinematic play) or per session (Campaign mode). However the refer...

Re: Character "nationalities"

Wither France in all this? Germany and Spain are part of the UPP now. Are the rest of EU struggling on alone? Destroyed in war? or Vassal states to the big three? I suppose that, when talking about Germany, it's supposed to be East Germany. So I suppose that there is a West Germany according to the...

Re: [Moved] Survival Rate?

Hi! Keep in mind the agendas too because they affect (a lot) the survival rate of the scenario. In my Chariots game, the survival rate was decided by the Weyland-Bionational conflict. Lucas set the selfdestruction process and Wilson was trying to avoid. Wilson failed and both died. In the meanwhile,...

Re: How much do Weyland-Yutani know?

In comparison to Star Wars, that universe has a much wider scope.   In Star Wars you can take out Jedi, or smugglers, or the Empire, or the Rebellion, or bounty hunters, and still have a good story to tell.  With Alien, once you take out the monsters, or even push them into the background as some n...

Re: Observation skill – are the listed questions the only ones you can ask?

I use "Observation" as a Perception or Find ability in other RPGs. For me, it covers not only "see" but "hear" too (since there is no other ability related to listen in the character sheet). In other words and in my opinion, it covers any ability related to senses. So, with that I would use in any q...
