“Destroyer of Worlds, also penned by Gaska, is a continuation of the story from Chariot, this time focusing upon an iconic type of character from the ALIEN universe: the Colonial Marine. A team of Colonial Marines get dropped onto the moon Ariaricus to handle a growing insurgency, but soon find themselves fighting for their lives against enemies beyond their worst nightmares. Priced at $29.99, the Destroyer of Worlds Cinematic scenario will come in a boxed set, including maps, handouts, and cards for a fully immersive tabletop experience.”

In addition to the new scenario Free League has also announced a new Starter Kit which includes an abridged version of the core ruleset as well as plenty of additional goodies like counters and dice to help get you started!

“The ALIEN RPG Starter Set is designed to be the perfect entry point into the game and the ALIEN universe. Affordably priced at $49.99, it contains everything needed to start playing, including an abridged 104-page softcover quickstart of the core rules, 20 custom dice, reference cards, character handouts, a huge starmap, and the complete Cinematic scenario Chariot of the Gods by sci-fi author Andrew E.C. Gaska.”

    In my defence, I did someone cure it with that ridiculous roll, before my dice abandoned me for the rest of the game! Thanks for running the session Clara, hope you enjoyed it yourself! Also a pleasure to e-meet you j0nesy! Has anyone ever told you that you remind them of Stephen Amell?

    they have not, but i will take it! last night actually made me consider getting some physical dice, can't beat that dice "sound"

    just finished the first act of chariot of the gods, gmed by clara; highlights being shevvie's junkie method acting, and hicks's company agent jumping in a disease riddled medpod to recover from being stabbed in the eye

    has anyone actually ran a session based around any of the Alien movies yet? or is that too obvious?
    could be kinda cool though. experiencing the colony as part of Hope's Last Day is cool enough, actually being part of Aliens even cooler.
    remember to give Hudson a good Comtech skill!

    could be kind of a parallel universe version of the story. "here's how it could've gone down"

    I think the marines could have won the day with a couple of decisions being more effective, and a bit more luck (if that first dropship had made it..)

    update: played hope's last day at the weekend, it was so much fun. everyone escaped hadley's hope, minus a single facehugged soul

    i recommend the alien rpg discord to those looking to get involved!

    I'd think it's aimed mostly at the people who don't, but Shevvie convinced me with it being a shorter, perhaps almost "quick" guide and the extra goodies (the dice along are almost the same price as the boxset) that it was worth it.

    I've not watched it yet but here's some footage of a session we did.



    Just watched this. My verdict: I want more !

    Glad you enjoyed it! Certainly endeavouring to do more!

    There's so many ways to play online, for those without local roleplaying victims.. er... friends. My group uses a combination of Discord and Zoom. But by no means is that everything (Though Discord does have dice rolling bots, and the Alien RPG one is AMAZING).

    Yeah everything about this RPG looks amazing, but the lack of any of hoomans around who'd be willing to play it with me is one of the big reasons I haven't gotten it yet (or any other tabletop RPGs, for that matter).

    On a related note, as someone who's never actually bought or played any tabletop RPGs and thus is a noob in their ways, what would be the benefit of getting this starter kit when the main game already came out last year? Is it just like a "demo" version of the game or something? If you bought the starter kit would it then be a waste of money to buy the full version afterwards? Or similarly, if you just got the main game would the starter kit not even be something you would have to consider getting?

    I want to preorder Destroyer of Worlds but the shipping cost from their site is, like, half the price of the item itself.

    Like yeah I get that it's coming from overseas but I think I'm going to just wait until amazon carries it and then I don't have to pay crazy international shipping.

    Free League Publishing and 20th Century Studios are proud to announce not one but two major expansions for the official ALIEN tabletop roleplaying game, released last December to universal acclaim. This August will see the release of a boxed Starter Set, as well as a brand-new Cinematic module entitled Destroyer of Worlds. Both titles can be pre-ordered from the ALIEN RPG website as of today in honor of ALIEN DAY, the annual 4/26 celebration of the ALIEN franchise and fandom.

    The ALIEN RPG Starter Set is designed to be the perfect entry point into the game and the ALIEN universe. Affordably priced at $49.99, it contains everything needed to start playing, including an abridged 104-page softcover quickstart of the core rules, 20 custom dice, reference cards, character handouts, a huge starmap, and the complete Cinematic scenario Chariot of the Gods by sci-fi author Andrew E.C. Gaska.

    Destroyer of Worlds, also penned by Gaska, is a continuation of the story from Chariot, this time focusing upon an iconic type of character from the ALIEN universe: the Colonial Marine. A team of Colonial Marines get dropped onto the moon Ariaricus to handle a growing insurgency, but soon find themselves fighting for their lives against enemies beyond their worst nightmares. Priced at $29.99, the Destroyer of Worlds Cinematic scenario will come in a boxed set, including maps, handouts, and cards for a fully immersive tabletop experience.

    The 392-page core rulebook for the official ALIEN roleplaying game was released in December 2019 along with a host of supplements. The game immediately sold out its first print run and swiftly entered the Top-5 list of best-selling tabletop RPGs in the fall of 2019. The game is currently being translated into seven languages, and was recently nominated for an Origins Award for Best RPG of the Year.
