Re: Virtual Tabletops?

I’ve been looking for something in the VTT realm and have not found it. I really have only played in person and want something that “supports” the table top and doesn’t “replace” the table top. Most of the products I’ve seen seem to be geared towards turning the TTRPG experience into “legend of Zeld...

Re: First scenario hopes

Interesting! Since the movies focus on the events revolving the xenomorphs I never thought the rest of the setting was actually covered/detailed. Alien for most people is all about the "space monsters" and Im just worried my players would be disappointed to enter the game and not confront said mons...

Re: Hadley's Hope Blueprints

Blueprints/maps of a colony like Hadley’s Hope are actually pretty useful beyond revisiting a film location. It’s unlikely that profit minded Weyland Yutani would design different facilities for each terraforming colony. Those “reliable” prefabricated buildings and even the “proven” layout would pro...

Re: First scenario hopes

I’ve run many campaigns in the Alien universe over the years, using whatever information was available at the time. It’s probably one of the biggest sandboxes you could ever hope to play in. I’ve used the setting to explore many stories and ideas and rarely relied on Xenomorphs to keep players engag...

Re: Pups

Yeah, you’re correct, I didn’t even think about the gravity decks... probably because they weren’t mentioned and just left in the background. I guess I have to admit that I have two biases that come into play here. 1. My brain sees “antigravity” and squirms, and I get worked up about hack writing th...

Re: Things I hope to see

I really prefer sourcebooks over scenarios, and would love to have books detailing different factions their facilities(locations) and equipment. I’ve been a bit disappointed with the Coriolis supplements so far, they’re almost entirely scenarios and the few that aren’t leave you with more questions ...

Pups

In the text these mapping devices are described as having “limited antigravity” which is just pure fantasy and has no basis in physics. These are the only items in the game I’ve seen that use antigravity, everything else is nice hard science(except the FTL drive, but c’mon). Might I suggest they ins...

Morse code, a Scenario

I’ve been playing and running Aliens games for years, different home brews using whatever system was available and holding everything together with duct tape. I wanted to share one of the scenarios I ran, way back in ‘90s. It picked up shortly after the events of the third film. I called it Morse Co...
