About the adventure

You are part of an international science team sent to investigate a new sign of life in a forgotten system. Soon after your arrival you realize that you're in for more than you bargained for.

The finale is a grand showdown with the stakes being all of humanity. This cinematic module for ALIEN RPG is known as "Heart of Darkness" and is the final part of the 26 Draconis Trilogy. This adventure module is full of exploration, conflict, and deceit. Along the way you'll reveal new lore and possibilities in the ALIEN universe.
