Figured that was you, but wasn't gonna say anything.  :P

EDIT: the number of typos/grammatical errors in those newsletters is concerning. If you've got a line to those guys, you might want to suggest they pass 'em around the office one more time before sending them out.

They're Swedish so perhaps English is the second language of the writer?

Yeah, I figured that was the case with the newsletter too.

They're viewable online too.

Welcome!

This is the fourth official newsletter for the upcoming ALIEN tabletop RPG by Free League Publishing and Twentieth Century Fox. And we have big news!

On May 25, 1979, ALIEN first graced the silver screen. Forty years to the day after the ALIEN franchise first inspired and shocked the world, we launch the official pre-order for the game at alien-rpg.com. This exclusive pre-order starts at 6 am PST / 9 am EST / 3 pm CEST Saturday May 25, and will end on August 4.

The full printed game will launch late this year, but if you pre-order you don't need to wait to play! As a complimentary bonus gift for anyone who pre-orders via our webshop, we offer a meaty 168-page Cinematic Starter Kit PDF including the full-length Cinematic scenario Chariot of the Gods written by Alien RPG setting writer and sci-fi novelist Andrew E.C. Gaska. The Cinematic Starter Kit will be available for download via DrivethruRPG as soon as the pre-order purchase is confirmed.

In addition, anyone who pre-orders the core rulebook will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the game before it goes to print and earn a play-tester credit in the final publication.



PRE-ORDER OFFERS

The centerpiece of the pre-order is of course the Alien RPG Core Rulebook containing 300+ pages of mythology, original artwork, and custom mechanics for open-world campaigns as well as cinematic gameplay, based on our award-winning Year Zero game engine.

In addition to the core rulebook, we offer a deluxe GM Screen, custom dice, a large starmap, and custom cards for weapons, NPCs and combat initiative. If you want to go all-in, we will offer bundles at great value.

If you want a unique artifact, we will offer the 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Core Rulebook, with a special commemorative embossed book cover. Exclusive to this pre-order campaign, the 40th Anniversary Limited-Edition will never be printed again. You can see the design below.



WHY PRE-ORDER?

In the past, we have done many Kickstarters to fund the development of our roleplaying games. This a pre-order, meaning that the game will be published no matter how many people take part in it. However, there are three good reasons to take part in this-preorder:

    You get the 168-page Cinematic Starter Kit PDF within days after purchase and can start playing immediately!
    By taking part in the pre-order you can provide feedback on the game before the core rulebook goes to print, and thereby help us making the game even more awesome.
    A big support for the pre-order will help us kick off development of modules and supplements for the game even sooner.

More information about the pre-order, including the pricing, will be revealed on Saturday.

Retailer? Official retail solicitations for the ALIEN roleplaying game and supplements will begin in July, but retailers are encouraged to contact us at info@frialigan.se with any questions to welcome them into the 40th Anniversary fun as well.

Missed the previous newsletters? If you missed the first three newsletters, you can find #1 here, #2 here and #3 here. If you have questions or thoughts on the ALIEN RPG, don't hesitate to visit our forums on the Free League website or follow us on Facebook.
