    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. Some said building the colony was unwise. The moon hadn't even been mapped in 2157, the weather would make life a constant struggle, and the violent geology made it feel as if the world didn't want anyone there at all. Yet someone at Weyland-Yutani allocated the budget and gave the green light, and so Hadley's Hope was founded. Supervisor Al Simpson got stuck into the job and the colonists soon learned to live with LV-426's quirks. it wasn't long before they were making a success of this most unlikely of colonies. Four days ago, a wildcatter named Russ Jorden was brought back, infected with something. He died, and some snake-like parasite disappeared into the guts of the base. Security has had no luck catching the thing, and somehow more people were infected. Rumor has it that some of them have died, and that there are more of these snake-things than Supervisor Simpson is admitting to. Simpson spoke over the intercoms, calling for calm."
