  • Star Log.EM: More Alien Feats (SFRPG) This Star Log.EM-installment clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin this supplement with a brief piece of cool flavor, which codifies alien species like reptoids, mi-go, etc. as “Enigmalice” – which is genius. Depending on the threat level and your stance on the species, you could emphasize “enigma”, “malice” or “lice.” This is a really clever neologism that made me smile with glee.   So, what do we get?   Grays can choose from 3 new feats:   -Gray Telepathy: Nets a lashunta’s limited telepathy; may be taken additional times […]

The rules-set employed is, as always, VSd6, a super rules-lite d6-based system, supplemented by a metric ton of dressing […]

  • This article is for the die-hard, original ‘Alien’ fans out there.  If you want any of that AVP filler then please, read no further. Now that the air is clear, the wait is almost over.  Director Ridley Scott’s latest Alien prequel is due to hit theaters on 8 June, 2012.  Charlize Theron plays the lead role according to the most recent movie trailer at the bottom of this article.  Of note, seeing Theron in this film’s setting sort of reminds you of the latest Metroid games except without the crouch-roll function as she is as fit as a ninja.  However, I digress. Although Theron is the lead character, Scott equally devotes his time explaining the origins of Weyland Industries, the […]
