I just learned that the plasma rifle from Aliens Colonial Marines got carried forward into the Alien RPG and Aliens Dark Descent.

Does the RPG carry over anything else from A:CM?

Yup. The Charger/Crusher Xenomorph, for one thing. Weapons, creatures and technology from A:CM are all canon; the story is definitely not, however.

Received the physical book yesterday! Sadly none of the errors seem to have been corrected.

Do you happen to have a link handy? Thanks!

Also do we know if anyone other than Free League sells them? Like, say, Amazon?

Its sort of like a new expansion?

No the article basically describes it as a tool that has all the RPG data already uploaded so you can quickly generate characters, enemies, locations etc. At least that's how I interpreted it.

Mr. Clemens

Yeah, they didn't do too good a job of describing what a 'Nexus' is.

Still Collating...

Don't know about this myself, certainly won't need to use it, but on the Alien RPG group I see people are a bit confused about the necessity of this this app. This is not an official FL product as far as I'm aware. Especially cause you need to buy everything there again, unlike the modules in Foundry and Roll20 where you get everything if you own the books. And you already have fan sites that have generators for planets and events... From my understanding, the nexus doesn't offer anything particularly new or useful.

Whatever the case may be, glad there's buzz about the RPG.

Had the Starter Set delivered today. Thanks to the Map of the Middle Heavens, I now know where New Earth Colony is!

So if NEXUS is just a tool of sort, can we realistically still expect new Adventure Modules/expansions or perhaps that was it for the line?
