Re: Close combat and xenomorphs

If you're the GM, it's your right and your job to interpret the text of the book. You don't need staff to weigh in on what the word "sturdy" means or whether or not blocking with something smaller than a maglight makes sense. ESPECIALLY if it's causing balance problems. Can you block a punch with so...

Re: Trying to make sense of "Xenomorphs"

As for your alien stages, the dog Xenomorph from Alien 3 is just a variation of the drone, it just happens to have come from a different host so looks and behaves a bit differently. . But if this is so, where does the game's "Stage IV SCOUT Xenomorph" come from? I this is not the same as the "dog a...

Re: Authority Talent not useful for Colonial Marshal

Thanks, I edited the subject to Marshal. Okay, that makes sense to use Manipulate in place of a Command roll. So, they got the two skills revered in the talent text? Well... not exactly. The talent lets you use one skill INSTEAD of the other one; You don't train both skills, you train one and use t...

Re: Authority Talent not useful for Colonial Marines

I think you mean Marshall, not Marine ;) From my reading it looks like the intention is that you can use Manipulation (a career skill) to make Command checks (not a career skill) and they just got the two skills flipped around. Command lets you give orders and stop panic, and the "Authority" talent ...

Re: Corebook Errata

It isn't my point. Back to topic, please. Then can I ask what is? Since you maintain the fan-errata, and you said you were leaving it (and the game itself) because of what Fria Ligan posted on FB, I think it's pretty on-topic to talk about why. You've been providing a valuable service and I'd hate ...

Re: Corebook Errata

Maybe we have different opinions what an errata is. It's the list of errors, not the corrected version. There is no official errata , yet. But there is no need to argue about it. :D Either way, if your point is you're upset that the first round of corrections only addresses the six primary mechanic...

Re: Corebook Errata

Just read on Facebook by Fria Ligan: The errata has only a handful of very minor edits. […] Its six edits altogether, I think counts as a handful. :) If that's the way our work (a pages-long document and nearly 90 posts in this thread) is honored, I'm out. Yes, it's childish and defiant, but I have...
