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...

Re: Alien films

Hi... I think it's better that not answer every point you have stated or we will be here until the end of time :) (I mind, I would try to refute your points, you would do the same with mine and so on) Question is that when I saw the film in the cinema, I went out willing to kill Ridley Scott (like m...

Re: Alien films

I have just seen Prometheus again so I have more detailed memories about this film thinking about this thread. I think the main problem is that script has many flaws. In essence, the Prometheus crew seems a group of selfish kids going to discover an alien civilization but it can be specified followi...

Re: Maps

I have to admit, after two days, that Illwinter's is a good tool for newbies like me. It's a bit short about features but you can design a map in 5 minutes (I use black and white only). I would recommend now since it's an offer, it costs 4 euros until January 20 (If I am not wrong). 7 euros could be...

Re: Maps

It's 4 € now at steam. It's similar to RPG Map Editor but it has more options... Although it's not so easy to use at first (I have just purchased). Edit: I am using it. It's far from perfect because: - It's designed for fantasy-medieval sets. So if you want to input a table, it's a wooden table. If ...

Re: Maps

Have you ever tried RPG Map Editor 2 ? It's a free (well, a "pay what you want") program with which you can make, in my oppinion, quite decent looking maps, with lighting, darkness and fog effects. It is very simple and user-friendly (you will be using it in five minutes) and, while somewhat limite...

Re: Alien films

Forget the script of "Prometheus II". Here it's, "Covenant">>. And what happened with Shaw and David? "No problem, we solve all these questions in a 5 minute short movie".   They didn't have a Prometheus 2 script - just ideas, which were adjusted based on the feedback to the first film. It's true, ...

Re: Alien films

Prometheus was the state-of-the-art company flagship; Nostromo was a dilapidated tug.  (Not sure where you get that Covenant has the same structure as Alien; the setup is similar, but it also owes something of a debt to Aliens, as well as going off in its own gothic direction.) As for the films - e...
