Thinking about all things alien i started wondering if i should introduce a penalty for living at minimum expense. Probably this will come in play between sessions and maybe anyone who choose to live and oay for anything less than Normal starts a session with some stress and maybe a condition?
Stress and exhaustion are easily relieved early in a scenario but if it hits the fan quickly it might become an issue.
Just a thought.
You could use things from mental trauma that could applie to poor living condition for long periods of time ie depression/alcoholism/drug use
Yeah thats a good idea, at least ill look at them for inspiration!
I dont want it to be too harsh a punishment yet enough to make the players think twice before going for minimum just to lessen expenses!
Im really excited to dive into this game now, I love coriolis but Alien even more so. And the small refinements to the rules, mainly thinking about Stress, just ups the game a notch above Coriolis where i could never really enjoy the darkness point system.
This is gonna be a great winter!
