Description

The ALIEN tabletop roleplaying game core rulebook is a beautifully illustrated full-colour hardcover book with a massive 392 pages. It presents the world of ALIEN in the year 2183 and is also a fast and effective ruleset designed specifically to enhance the ALIEN experience. The game supports two distinct game modes:

Cinematic Play

Cinematic play is based on pre-made scenarios that emulate the dramatic arc of an ALIEN film. They conclude in a single session and emphasise high stakes and fast and brutal play. You are not all expected to survive. The core rulebook contains one complete Cinematic scenario.

Campaign Play

Campaign play provides longer continuous play with the same cast of player characters over many game sessions. This mode lets you explore the ALIEN universe freely, sandbox style. The core rulebook contains random tables and other powerful tools to quickly create star systems, colonies, missions, encounters and NPCs for your campaign.

The rules of the game are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used in award-winning games such as Tales from the Loop and Mutant: Year Zero. However, they are further developed to enhance the core themes of ALIEN: horror action in the cold darkness of space.

Space is vast, dark, and not your friend. Gamma rays and neutrino bursts erupt from dying stars to cook you alive, black holes tear you apart, and the void itself boils your blood and seizes your brain. Try to scream and no one can hear you—hold your breath and you rupture your lungs. Space isn’t as empty as you’d think, either—its frontiers are ever expanding. Rival governments wage a cold war of aggression while greedy corporations vie for valuable resources. Colonists reach for the stars and gamble with their lives—each new world tamed is either feast or famine. And there are things lurking in the shadows of every asteroid—things strange and different and deadly.

Things alien.

This is the official ALIEN tabletop roleplaying game—a universe of body horror and corporate brinkmanship, where synthetic people play god while space truckers and marines serve host to newborn ghoulish creatures. It’s a harsh and unforgiving universe and you are nothing if not expendable.

Stay alive if you can.
