Fria Ligan (Free League Publishing) has put together a new Starter Set for Alien: The Roleplaying Game. With a cinematic Sci-Fi story to follow penned by Andrew E.C. Gaska, it is guaranteed to make you scream.

Alien Starter Set - Fria Ligan

Included within the Starter Set...

  • A 104-page rulebook with a fast and effective ruleset designed specifically to support the core themes of ALIEN: horror and action in the cold darkness of space.
  • The 48-page complete Cinematic scenario Chariot of the Gods by sci-fi novelist Andrew E.C. Gaska, taking you on a thrilling, terror-filled ride into deep space where no one can hear you scream. Chariot of the Gods is designed for 3–5 players plus the GM.
  • Five pre-generated characters to play.
  • A huge full-colour, double-sided map (format 864 x 558mm), with one side depicting chartered space in the year 2183 and the other floor plans for the Chariot of the Gods scenario.
  • 84 game markers for keeping track of characters, motion tracker pings, and more.
  • 56 high-quality custom cards for weapons, personal agendas, and initiative in combat.
  • A set each of ten engraved Base Dice and ten Stress Dice, designed specifically for the ALIEN roleplaying game.

This sounds very, very cool indeed and I would love to give this a go. I don't reckon I'd be very good on the GM side of things, but I'd love to give this a try as a player. From all accounts, Fria Ligan seemed to have done a good job with the horror elements of the Alien RPG and I'd love to see how Chariot Of The Gods plays out.

More Screams

In addition to the Starter Set, there is also a new supplement called Destroyer Of Worlds.

This entry sounds equally as terrifying and is penned by the same author as Gaska gets involved once more.

"The mission was a manhunt, the objectives clear—track down four fugitives, recover any assets they may have made off with, and keep ‘em all out of enemy hands. Go find them on a frozen moon full of hostiles and get it done on the eve of war. Nothing you couldn’t handle.

But what it is that these bastards stole—and how the hell it got inside them—is another thing altogether. It’s all above your paygrade, marine—but somehow you’re the one who’s got to deal with it.

Of course, now there’s an invasion fleet incoming, and there’s something else, too—something much worse. Something out there hates you—hates everyone. Something big and ugly. Something with metal teeth—and you’re pretty sure it ain’t alone.

Yeah, the mission was supposed to be a simple manhunt. Instead, it turned out to be just another glorious day in the corps."

Just as with the Starter Set, you'll find a wealth of additional content here for playing games of Alien. It is another cinematic scenario so you'll probably end up dead but who knows, you might get lucky!

  • The main Destroyer of Worlds scenario book.
  • huge double-sided map (format 864x558mm) of Ariaricus colony on one side and the Fort Nebraska space elevator ground base on the other.
  • Five pre-generated characters to play.
  • Custom cards for weapons, vehicles, and personal agendas.
  • Player maps and handouts.

This scenario will require either the Starter Set or the Core Rules of Alien in order to play. I do like the idea of moving on from the adventure in the Starter Set with this as the sequel, whether your characters lived or died.

Are you going to be giving these new options a look for Alien: The Roleplaying Game?
