Hello Alien Forum!
Today I received my Alien RPG together with some cards and dice and I decided to register here and get in touch with other players (and eventually designers) to get the most of it and avoid misstakes.
I couldn't unpack it yet. But I guess it's not really the lack of time but more the lack of courage. I just fear of opening it and being disappointed by something. So at the moment it is a kind of perfect state of having it beside me on the table and not being put down by something. As a long time Alien RPG fan I played dozens of adventures with the old game from Leading Edge and I really hope it is a great thing and supports the way I love to play. I don't know anything about the game system and its principle mechanics yet.
In another forum I heard that the smell of the book is quite strange (because of the high colour saturation). Does anybody has a trick to get rid of the smell?
And is there some helpful advice how I'm going to get involved with the game if I want to be GM? Are there things of big importance and others which can be left out at the beginning?
How do I start best?
Kind regards, Niceyard
