    About the adventure

    Hadley’s Hope is a “shake and bake” colony located on the moon LV-426. Established in 2157, the colony is a terraforming, research, and mining facility, and a new home to its pioneers. By 2179 there are 158 colonists there, and the first natives of LV-426 had been born. The giant processors are changing the atmosphere: now breathable, but still choked by dense clouds and wracked by electrical storms. The sky is always gloomy, more like night than day. Even when the sun is above the horizon it’s often hidden behind the giant form of Calpamos, LV-426’s parent planet. "Hope's Last Day" tells the story of the final hours of Hadley’s Hope, all through the eyes of five colonist workers. It offers a brief taste of Cinematic gameplay and drops the players straight into the action. The pre-generated characters all have their own Agendas, Buddies, and Rivals, but together they have one desperate collective mission: to escape LV-426 alive.

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Microphone is required, as is the Zoom teleconferencing software. A webcam is highly recommended. Since this is an introductory scenario, no prior knowledge of the game is necessary. Watch Alien. Watch Aliens. Watch Aliens again, because this module is set on LV-426 (and it's an awesome movie).

    What I provide

    All the game rules, Foundry support, and soundtracks.

    Gameplay details

    The Alien RPG is a fairly faithful recreation of the Alien movies. The game largely centers around your character just trying to survive. The universe is full of body horror and horrible, squicky ways to die. Things that are NOT going to be present are rape, torture, or violence against children. The X-Card is always in play.

    How will character creation work
