Re: Space Combat?

Blade Runner is canon if Alien Isolation is. Alien Isolation has logs that talk about Tyrell and his "puppets" project and how the synthetics were more reliable and had more of a future. BR also has the Weyland Yutani logo somewhere. http://cinemajam.com/mag/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/BeFunky-collag...

Is Aliens: Colonial Marines still considered canon?

I know that game was a complete train wreck. At the time it was touted as having a story that would be considered canon. Is that still true for the purposes of this RPG? I want to point out some issues with that games story being in any way official. -Hicks is alive on LV426 and a captive of Weyland...

Re: HOUSE RULE - Purchasing Talents of other Professions

... There is already alot to spend exp on and death is right around the corner. These power builds will die just as fastbefore they ever get made. Some GMs (such as myself) let the players in the group create new characters with the same amount of experience that their lost characters had accumulat...

Re: [Houserule] No action economy and faster combat

If I might make a suggestion. Instead of removing action economy entirely you should open it up with soft caps instead of the games current hard caps. The game as written has hard caps. You get one slow action and one fast action or 2 fast actions and that is it. You are actually INCAPABLE of doing ...

Re: HOUSE RULE - Purchasing Talents of other Professions

I dont think professions SHOULD be important. If anyone is familiar with the ffg sw games they did it well and similarly. You get talent trees for free based on "class" but anyone can buy into any other classes talent trees for a cost. People dont fit neatly into a box defined by their job and chara...

How will you run an Alien game?

This is my plan for running it. I am going to only play at night or in a dark basement/room where we can get full darkness. Everyone will either get Holloween glow stick necklaces to see by or I will get a black light and some high contrast dice. The players will sit on a couch, with a table in fron...

Re: How many dice sets?

I buy the "cases" of 12mm d6s made by chessex. 36 dice per case. 3 colors give plenty for a party of 5 players and a GM. For instance I go these for Forbidden Lands.

HOUSE RULE - Purchasing Talents of other Professions

This is my own rules because I always hate the idea of "classes" putting players inside of a box and restricting everyone else. Consider it the possibility of cross classing or whatever. You may purchase the Talents of any other Profession but each rank has it's base cost increased by 2 experience p...

Re: Path of Superiority (alternate Fighter Path)

I think the WP cost works well for the d8 on the rank 1 ability. But I would say if it is going to cost WP then it shouldn't be limited to once a round. Make it so you can add the d8 once per action at the cost of 1 WP. This "Path" bleeds will power all over the place. But gets good benefits for doi...

Re: How many items can be repaired per quarter of a day?

The problem with requiring more successes is successes have a mechanical effect. Each success repairs 1 durability. So you create a situation where you need 2 successes to succeed on the second item but are incapable of repair 1 durability. You can add addendums like (except the first success doesnt...
