The Destroyer of Worlds cinematic adventure module and a new Starter Set for the multiple award-winning ALIEN tabletop toleplaying game were released today by Free League Publishing.

Having just won a Gold ENNIE Award for Best Game and a People's Choice Award for Best RPG at the UK Games Expo, the official ALIEN RPG today got its first two expansions to the line. Both modules are as of now available in the Free League webshop, in digital format at DrivethruRPG, and soon in hobby stores everywhere.

Destroyer of Worlds, written by critically acclaimed sci-fi author Andrew E.C. Gaska, lets players take the role of 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 ALIEN Destroyer of Worlds Cinematic scenario comes in a boxed set, including maps, handouts, and cards for a fully immersive tabletop experience.

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, also penned by Gaska.

Rightio, we're chatting to Drew Gaska about the RPG in a couple of days. As always, offering everyone the chance to post up some questions if they have any for him, and we'll try and include some.

The question I have is a bit unoriginal and probably already been asked but I would ask is the Alien RPG canon, because there are apparently elements in there that will contradict some information on our wiki. So would definitely like to know if it is canon or not and which elements are just for game mechanics and ones that are full on lore.

I think I remember someone mentioning in here a while back that the RPG is indeed considered canon, but I'm not sure.

I guess I would ask whether or not he's written a bunch of cinematic scenarios that are all ready to go with a staggered release over several months, or does he wait for feedback from the most recent one before he gets to work on another?

Basically does he have a big backlog of adventures for us to play in the (hopefully) near future, or are we going to have to wait a while to see more? ;)

That's the problem, I've got so much stuff scattered all over the place because I barely have enough room to put any of it anywhere! :laugh:

I guess another question would be whether or not he's involved in any way with writing the upcoming sourcebooks (or at least the Colonial Marines one, since that's currently the only one we know of)?

The Alien RPG is canon, but I assume Gaska will confirm that himself if asked in an interview.

Q
Given how deep it sounds like the lore rabbit hole goes with this, are there any mentions of places like Vega 4/New Shanghai, San Drad, Ryushi, Bunda or any other locations related to the AVP side of the Alien EU?

No.  The license was Alien/ Prometheus only and the bible that was used as one of the sources didn't contain any AvP locations.


The RPG references Odobenus Station, which is from AvPClassic.

Necro-quoting. That was a mistake. There's only a single reference to Odobenus. The other mention of a station in orbit is given a different name. Not sure if that was fixed in later printings?

I only have the first edition so I can’t say, but yeah Gaska clarified that that was an error when I talked with him about it.

i'm sure i'm about to butcher the exact verbiage, but i think gaska referred to the events in the alien rpg as "bar room tales; people talk about what's happened/happening, but it could be hearsay, or it could be totally real"
