Re: Have you seen this? Aliens RPG

What's the gameplay like? I don't see much on it from the website?

Re: Mission 3 Turn 8: Reunion

“Thanks,” Mark said as Stark handed him the rifle. In reality, he reflected, it seemed he rarely used his rifle outside of patrol and practice. He wasn’t the strongest of Marines, and somehow there always seemed to be something more important to carry. Still, Stark wasn’t wrong - A rifle could be us...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 7: Fireteam Alpha

"I found something, sir." Mark announced as his fingers traced the small square. He slid a fingernail under the panel and lifted, exposing it as a supposed all-weather cover that was never intended for the kind of perpetual wetness and near virulent vegetation that this planet provided. Mildew, fung...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 7: Fireteam Alpha

Mark was only a pace away when the heavy metal door began to close. He had to fight the instinct to reach out and try to hold it open. It would have been futile at best, with an injury just as likely. He likewise resisted the urge to pound on the door once it had finished closing. It would have been...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 6: Spotted

Tasked with watching the flanks, Mark was facing away from the androids when the engagement broke from a worrisome greeting to a violent engagement. He pressed harder into the thick tree at his back after the first reports of gunfire reached his ears. It ended again as suddenly as it started. "No ot...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 5: Visual

The mud and wet foliage were just starting to get to something resembling comfortable when Morse called out for the sweep. As much as Mark was curious to see what was going on up with the building, he hesitated to speak up. Sam, however, did not hesitate to volunteer both of them. Mark replied with ...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 5: Visual

"Well, that screams 'Secret Corp Facility' if I've ever seen one," Mark commented softly to the general people and the area around him. His hand instinctively moved to his jacket in search of the tablet computer he would normally have strapped to him.  It got halfway before he realized he was still ...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 3: Showdown

Praise be to the robustness of military tech. Mark thought to himself as he wiped the worst of the mud off of the transmitter’s casing. He had feared the worst when the unit had slipped out of his grasp during that attack, but it seemed that their fickle fortune had spared them that particular trag...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 3: Showdown

This is how it is going to end. Mark thought as he felt the thudding feet of the massive creature and heard the resonating boom of the high explosive tank shells. Godzilla is either going to step on me. Another tank round exploded behind him. Or they'll finally kill it, and I'm going to be crushed ...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 2: Megafauna

It was only the steel frame surrounding his torso that kept Mark from being face-down in the muddy dirt. It had all happened so fast there hadn't been much time for anything else. As the last of the stampeding beasts had seemed to pass, Mark keyed in the activation sequence into the keypad convenien...

Re: Mission 3 Turn 1: Stampede

This whole miss adventure had been a disastrous emotionally rollercoaster of terror and relief. The most recent of which was seeing Samantha Hall roll in with the vehicle train. He knew she had been on board, but in the shaking, panicked chaos of their cryo wake up and the Shiloh's destruction there...

Re: Mission 2 Turn 6: Respite

Giosso collapsed into a heap in the shade of tree-like-plant that to him looked like a well-overgrown fern. Monstrous, like everything else they had run across on this beast of a planet. His eyes started closed before he even had much time to consider how he intended to spend the next four hours. Th...

Re: Mission 2 Turn 1: Camp

paulson was on his turn at point as the challenge came, he had not seen the sentry and had no idea whether that was good skill craft or he was just too damn tired to pay proper attention. he resisted the urge to snap up his own weapon despite being aimed at.

Re: Mission 1 Turn 6: The Compartment

Mark wasn't sickened or afraid of blood or bloody mangles of flesh, he'd been in the corp long enough to (mostly) get over that, but he had no particular desire to be near them either. He also knew his skills didn't lend themselves to being useful around them. So instead he crossed the wreckage to t...
