Re: Error - Pulse Rifle Ammo

The thing about the radioactive ammunition that bothers me is that the rounds would also have to stay in the body to be remotely effective, many soft targets will have an exit wound. Depleted uranium may have desirable properties for armour piercing, but unless you’re fighting Terminators, they’ll p...

Re: The Space Jockeys

I will happily jump on this train. I personally agree that the Promethean humanoids are basically lame and detract from the deeper mystery of the first film.

Re: Books, audiobooks and related ALIEN media

If your planning on playing or GMing Marines, the colonial marines technical manual is a must. You can pick it up for relatively cheap on amazon. It’s written “in universe” which is something that I always thought was cool. Judging from the QuickStart, it’s pretty relevant to the game. It’s great be...
