Re: CotG Questions on bad air in the Cronus

Page 74, Suffocation: Failed stamina check is drop to Health = 0 and death roll each [5-10 second] round until you die. This also means broken. Death roll, page 65, Death: Stamina, no stress, or die, each round. Broken, page 64: can crawl and can mumble through the pain.  Crawling, page 55, Movement...

Re: Chariot Of The Gods changes summary

Note that destroying the Montero is only needed if the players refuse to rescue to Chronus. 

Mine were hesitant. And while it is a form of gating the adventure, destroying the Montero, if it drives players into the adventure, isn't a bad thing

Re: Neomorph Decision Issues

Piercing a bulkhead is covered in the ACSK, on page 71, and the Armor Values are on p.63.... Now, just holing it won't get it in...  But I'd suggest the first 6 hits the wall between.  If this holes the wall, additional 6's increase the of the hole.  [+] just enough for the attacking limb; wall prov...

Re: Is Aliens: Colonial Marines still considered canon?

I'm guessing this RPG and the Colonial Marines game should be both canonical, as long they don't contradict each other, since they are a Fox official product? Except that Fox only ever produced the movies. Everything else (or very nearly so) was done under licenses. Whether Twentieth Century Fox Fi...

Re: What's wrong with the Alien franchise – and how it can be fixed

The engineers bioengineering weapons is about the only reason for such creatures to exist; the life sequence is almost perfectly suited for a life extermination process, but it's also clearly not suited to long term biology. Giving that reason was inevitable for it to remain a franchise. AVP and AVJ...

Re: Who's gotten it to table so far?

Ahh, I must have blended the pushing rolls with regular panic rolls.  The panic table stuff still should be addressed to prevent the cascading trouble, or maybe other ways to reduce stress?
Cascading panic is realistic and thematic...

Re: Who's gotten it to table so far?

Note that panic check results  of 10+ mandate an action; that action replaces the action originally attempted.  (A 10 mandates standing there stupidly for a full stealth turn or until hit.) So, for example, 11 seek cover, the character just converts those 5 successes into a dive into cover.... descr...

Re: Will there be a wider setting on the finished book?

Yes, I know that Coriolis is different, that's why I pre-ordered Alien RPG, I am expecting it to be more like Coriolis and less like MY0. But still, the doubt remains... MYZ is the outlier, not Coriolis...  Forbidden lands is similar to Coriolis in terms of setting. Symbaroum (while using a differe...
