Re: Space Truckers, mostly Alien-free, UNTIL...

But sooner or later you have to throw in the casual alien, otherwise you could just call it Traveler. Nope. The trope set of Traveller and the trope set of alien, while they overlap somewhat, differ far more than just the xenomorphs... (besides, JTAS 4-26 includes the "reticulan parasite... a seria...

Re: Helium-3 is not a dangerous cargo. Chlorine Triflouride is a dangerous cargo.

Not really. That is just a side effect of a gas getting more volume.  That's just basic thermodynamics. That's also the reason why deodorant cools your skin when applied. Helium 3 is not per se cryogenic, but i can be. if stored in a  liquified state in those pressured bottles (like in LPG gastanke...

Re: Helium-3 is not a dangerous cargo. Chlorine Triflouride is a dangerous cargo.

but yeah, the only dangerous part about helium 3 is the gasbottle in which the stuff is stored... since it's usually under pressure... and of course, that you speak funny like mickey mouse ;D It's not just under pressure, but also cryogenic.... a leak is dangerous not for flammability, nor for toxi...

Re: Predator?

Don't like Predators? Don't play with them. But why deliberately exclude Preds from everyone because you dislike them? RPGs are all about player choice.  Predator is a separate intellectual property. It would almost certainly require a separate license, and makes more sense as a separate but compat...

Re: Alien take on MYZ-engine

Characters: Androids are possible as PC (Xenomorphs are not. ;) ) Deep_Impact, thank you for posting the link to the interview with Thomas Härenstam.
