'In celebration of the official 40th Anniversary this Saturday, Free League will offer a meaty 168-page Cinematic Starter Kit for their highly-anticipated Alien RPG – debuting their first Cinematic module Chariot of the Gods written by Alien RPG setting writer and sci-fi novelist Andrew E.C. Gaska – as a complimentary bonus gift for anyone who pre-orders the Alien RPG Core Rulebook at alien-rpg.com. The Cinematic Starter Kit will be available for download as soon as the pre-order purchase is confirmed.'
I'm reading the ALIEN RPG Cinematic Starter Set from Frial Ligan - this game is going to be amazing; It's got a history, from Weyland's TED talk to post Fiorina 161, and it not only covers the alien but also the governments, corporations and factions.
It's giving the players a chance to play the horror of Alien, the action of Aliens or the mystery of Prometheus. If you wanted to do something that doesn't involve the alien and stick to some corporate craziness - like Outland - then that's cool, too. There are plenty of options for all kinds of games.
I'll be starting the rules soon, but up to yet I'm loving what I'm seeing.
Also, the GM is called the 'Game Mother'. Brilliant!
More thoughts and reactions soon!
