About the adventure

In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream In this introductory cinematic adventure of the Alien RPG, your mining ship is diverted to answer a distress beacon. Common practice for the company, but what you find in the lost, derelict craft is anything but common. This scenario provides pre-generated characters with differing agendas which may lead to PVP at the game table. Consider it as you would a game such as the board games of Battlestar Galactica, Shadows over Camelot, or Dead of Winter - you all succeed when working together but each character has different (and potentially opposing) victory conditions. Adult themes - as in movies of the Alien franchise, you can expect horror, panic, gore, body horror, and other adult themes. Not all characters are expected to survive, and the ending may not be a happy one.

Additional Details

How to prepare

No preparation is needed. The Alien RPG system is a modified version of the same used in Tales from the Loop and the Coriolis RPG - if you have experience, it will be helpful, but not required.

What I provide

You will need a Roll20 account, a Discord account, plus webcam and microphone. Past that, bring yourself with a sense of fun and enjoyment of the genre, including a healthy dose of suspicion and acceptance that your character may not survive.

Gameplay details

Alien RPG is relatively new, using a D6 system that is easy to pick up and play. Pre-generated characters will be used for the scenario. This scenario is not for the faint of heart, and involves body horror, adult themes and language, and overall expect a "Alien" movie feel to this. I can't lie to you about your chances, but you have my sympathies.
