Mild anxiety over not having pre-ordered yet. That last Prodos sale kinda f**ked up my disposable.

Currently I'm running this for my crew and everyones liking thus far. Although I gotta say, this ain't no 4-5 hour module, it's been two long sessions with a third one coming up.

How genre savvy are they being?

Only a couple are acting like this. While everyone else is playin' into the role of a horror movie character. It's like a weird mix of prequel goofiness and the survival mindset of the originals.

Hmm, prolly not the players dragging it out then. Though I do find sometimes I need to introduce an Aliens style "reactors f**ked, you have this long" or equivalent in the third act to really get players moving if they're being stubborn on the whole, not getting eaten front.

This hasn't been mentioned by anybody here yet, but there's a new incentive for pre-ordering, which ends tomorrow:

Quote
Hello! This is the thirteenth official newsletter for the upcoming ALIEN tabletop RPG by Free League Publishing and Twentieth Century Fox.

The exclusive pre-order of the game over at ALIEN-RPG.COM ends this Sunday August 11, so hurry over there now if you didn't order the game already - and tell your friends if you already did! There will not be another extension of the pre-order, so this is your last chance to gain early access to the 168-page Cinematic Starter Kit PDF and get those awesomely priced bundles!

To spice things up we have added two more pre-order bonuses:

A PDF of a complete 58-page chapter of the full rulebook, called "A Hard Life Amongst the Stars" will be shared shortly with all who have pre-ordered the game. This chapter focuses on space travel, starships and space combat, and gives you some insight into how the ALIEN roleplaying can be about much more than fightning xenomorphs. Note that this is just a sneak peek - the chapter is still not fully edited and proofed - if you spot errors in it, please do report them using the feedback form or on our forums.

All pre-order bundles have now - at no extra cost - been expanded with a bonus 48-page printed booklet, featuring the Chariot of the Gods scenario by Andrew E.C. Gaska, included in the Starter Kit PDF. The booklet will shipped to you along with the 392-page core rulebook and the other bundle items. Chariot was originally intended be included in the core rulebook, but it's simply too extensive for that, and we feel it's more user-friendly to publish it as its own book. The core rulebook will instead include the shorter introductory scenario Hope's Last Day. Note that the Chariot of the Gods booklet is of course included for everyone who pre-orders a bundle, even if you pre-ordered before this announcement.

I just downloaded my copy of the new chapter, and it looks good!  ;D

Preorder ends today so I caved and bought the standard bundle. Never played an rpg like this but I’m intrigued by the world building aspects.
