The world of "Aliens" is a treasure cove of adventures, it has given me so many years of pleasure in group and solo play with many different rules, Intruder, Aliens, Aliens D 20 and AvP. It is a setting that even its owners could not decide on what to make cannon. Players are so varied in the world journey that they wish to travel, and which aspects of history and time line they like, so it is with a total delight when I saw were you began your time line. It is at this time location, were every person appears to be on the same road. Just after Aliens but before Aliens 3. Here are the richest scenario possibilities, and one of the best "Villans" in the form of Weyland. Intrigue, espionage, spying, colonisation, all are rife in this world. Many scenarios we played did not even feature the "star beast". Marines are one above the Marshalls in settling problems, other player characters we used were Pilot, ICC official, Corp workers, scouts, engineer, medic, scientist, colonists and children. It as been the longest running game that my wife and myself have been involved in , this year August see`s my 65th birthday. and as we have just moved again. This will be my longest absent from Aliens as I`ve not played R.P.G. since last October. but have stayed true with books and AvP wargame. Although I`m not familiar with your rules, I can`t wait to buy a copy whatever rules any one uses new sand box is great you`ve a good "rep" and Aliens deserves a new spin of life and new adventures. Cheers to all who travel this new journey. Airborne and Gingernut.
