Re: Lore Concern: Rep-Detect Unit/Blade Runner Position Timeline

Watching the shorts again, in the 2022 short Gaff says that hunting replicants is the militarys job now. (unless I misheard) He may be talking about military deserters and not all replicants. I'm confused by the replicant registration numbers causing more problems on earth, when I assumed replicants...

Re: Blade Runner Replicants NPC's

I guess in game terms that would just be cool roleplaying. In a sense … but it would hardly be good roleplaying of a consistent Empathy D, would it? To emulate such a character development, I feel the relevant stat ought to track it. The roleplaying would follow. Well, I don't think he got that poi...

Re: Blade Runner Replicants NPC's

Roy gave that awesome speech at the end, but he stilled mercilessly killed a lot of people, so low Empathy. I think the point of Roy’s character arc — and of much of the movie’s plot, come to think of it — pivots around what in game terms might be described in that Roy’s Empathy stat pretty much ho...

Blade Runner Replicants NPC's

I like to make some NPC's based on a concept/character when I am learning a new game to see how the systems work. I made the 4 fugitive replicants from the first film. Some thoughts: I'm not sure what would represent the replicants' ability to withstand extreme temperatures (freezing cold room and b...

Re: Lore Concern: Rep-Detect Unit/Blade Runner Position Timeline

I'm currently working on Roy, Pris, Leon, Zhora, and maybe Rachelle. It would be great to have a resource to share things in.

Re: Lore Concern: Rep-Detect Unit/Blade Runner Position Timeline

I agree! I have no problem filling in gaps for personal canon. I really dislike Alien 3, so it exists differently in my Alien campaigns. Easy enough. You could always use the William Gibson version. But we digress. When it comes to IP lore it's a spectrum. On one end you have Star Wars when there i...

Re: Alien: Colony War

The dude wrote the least scary Xenomorphs I've ever read. They were basically no real threat. Also weird how people took the time to have lengthy conversations and flashback reminiscences in the middle of xeno swarm attacks, and the like. So, full disclosure, I'm trying to be an author and I take a...

Re: Lore Concern: Rep-Detect Unit/Blade Runner Position Timeline

At the meta level, I think the problem is that what one might consider "official sources" (i.e. canon), is simply riddled with too many inconsistencies for even the makers of this game to be able to perform the chronological and logistic gymnastics required to bind everything together coh...

Re: Lore Concern: Rep-Detect Unit/Blade Runner Position Timeline

Nope, you're totally correct. If we're taking the comics as Canon, the Nexus-6 would have been introduced in 2009 or 2010, not the early 2000s. The Nexus-1 was announced in 1999 and introduced in 2000, and according to the comics the Nexus-5 was developed in 2009. So the Nexus-2-4 would have been r...

Re: Lore Concern: Rep-Detect Unit/Blade Runner Position Timeline

I don't have an answer, but I do have another question. In the first film, Bryant explains replicants and specifically Nexus 6 to Deckard like he has no idea what they are. This is obviously to inform the viewer, but it makes for oddities. In the comic and/or novel adaptation of the film, there is e...
