IC: Alien RPG (Campaign)
I'd only be looking at 4, maybe 5 players. Characters would be stationed at a research facility at the ass end of space, so that would eliminate 'Kid' as a character option. Anything else would be ok.

At this point, I'm not fully ready to start, as that's still a bit away, but I would welcome discussion between players and myself to best set the tone for the game and expectations.

I would play. I own the book. This would likely be a campaign, and not a cinematic one-shot, right?

For those unfamiliar, in Alien RPG terms, campaign means dangerous but players likely to survive, while cinematic means everyone is almost certainly going to die that session-- it's trying to recreate one of the movies, and players are expected to embrace, enjoy, and lean into this style of play.

Not understanding this distinction has led to some misunderstandings in previous Interest Checks.

Yes, it would be a campaign. I didn't think to mention that part. Thanks!

Edited the thread subject to reflect that this is a campaign and not cinematic.

What is you stance on characters taking intelligent actions?

I'd welcome it. We can't all be 80's horror movie characters that investigate a bump in the night wearing only their underwear and carry no light source.

The heck with it, best way to gauge interest is to put up an ad looking for players.

Admins, please lock this thread. Thanks.
