The Covenant as an adventure setting

Tue 27 Aug 2019, 19:49

Mild spoilers for Alien: Covenant and Alien: Isolation

So, in Alien: Isolation we find out the Nostromo is basically a ghost ship. It's also highly sought after by scavengers because WY has offered a big reward for finding it. (This is much more obvious in the novel than in the game.)

So, since I'd be surprised if we get another Alien prequel I've been thinking about the Covenant. I think it could easily be something similar. It'd be a cool adventure to have players discover it and search it. Perhaps finding a mad scientist lab on it such as David had on Paradise. Even better they'd probably be able to find out what planet it last visited and backtrack to Paradise itself. And, of course, the ship would potentially be over run by neomorphs and the like. (Unless it's proven otherwise somewhere, I personally plan to treat David's creatures as an off-shoot of the Xenomorphs and not something that evolves into the Xenomorphs. Otherwise, in my opinion, Alien itself no longer makes sense.)
