Doesn't have that kind of detail.  That stuff will probably be in the full game when it's released at the end of the year.

How long until they pollute this thing with a Predator supplement?

There's no plans as far as I know. When I spoke to them - long time ago now - they had access to anything with Alien in the title as well as Prometheus.

Being an RPG, players can make up their own Predator stats and use it in a game if they wanted to.

I doubt we'll see Predator for a long time, if at all. When I was helping out with the odd bit and bob, I asked about if AvP related stuff was wanted and it wasn't.

I'm always happy to dump the grid in RPGs. People counting squares is a real tension-killer.  :P

I do love me some miniatures as a visual aid, but I find putting 'em on a grid strips back the drama.


I'm gonna be quite happy using the Board and Minis from Nemesis, I think that will work great


Didn't get the Prodos stuff while it was around?

I'm not a huge fan of Miniatures games, so apart from it being AvP I wasn't too interested. Granted having an Alien mini or 2 for this would be great.

Although the nemesis ones will make perfectly good stand ins, they even have their own lifecycle

When you are more excited for a table top game than another movie.  ;D

Gameplay of the preview from UKGE. I'm halfway through the first part and it sounds like the specific scenario Shevvie and I played (they did 3 different ones around Hadley's Hope). Hoping to get a preview written up soon.

Nice, I'll be giving those a listen for sure. I'll never play it (nobody to play it with), but this looks awesome. Very much looking forward to watching all the inevitable Youtube playthroughs when it's released.

I finished reading the PDF rule book, and though it's a cut down version of what will eventually be released, it's very solid.

Space is vast, dark, and not your friend: A review of the Cinematic Starter Kit for the Alien RPG

Overall
I’m very impressed with Cinematic Starter Kit for the Alien RPG. It’ll be a great way to learn the game and an acceptable way to pass the time while we wait for the main book to hit the printers.
