ALIEN RPG Chariot of the Gods Scenario

Watermarked PDF

The job was routine, the money fair. Then the damn company diverted you to answer a distress call from a ship that disappeared almost 80 years ago—a derelict carrying something bizarre, twisted, and alien. What the ship’s frozen crew brought back with them was bad enough—what they themselves were turning into was a bloody nightmare. Add to that an annoying sensor ghost shadowing you in the void, and your stress level is shot.

It’s all a bit much.

You don’t get paid enough to deal with monsters. But hold your breath, count to three, and play your cards right with this one, and you just might walk away very rich. Oh, who am I kidding?

You’re all going to die.

Chariot of the Gods is a complete Cinematic Scenario for the ALIEN Roleplaying Game written by sci-fi novelist Andrew E.C. Gaska. The 48-page booklet designed to introduce you to the game while at the same time 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 and takes at least 4–5 hours to complete.

How are the maps handled? I'm playing this with a group of friends on-line. Is there a way to share the maps with them? Maybe Snipping the PDF into smaller chunks?

I don't have this product, but with some others, I've taken screenshots of the portion of the pdf I wanted, and used those.
Doesn't grab text as text but just as part of the picture, but it's better than nothing.

Is there no print version of this? I'd like a hard copy.

UPP Stress interrogations start with forcing you to swipe through a PDF.

I like what I see so far in the Preview but I wish it was printer-friendly. That deep space background is murder!

This is not actually a QuickStart. It just contains the adventure with no rules except for a new creature that’s not in the Core Book.

Pages 30-37 should contain rules for dice rolling, panic, combat etc. (Just before the list of Skills). My copy does but I did get it from the preorder.

Nope, all rules references go the main book. Pages 30-37 are the event descriptions for the scenario.

Whatever the pre-order ppl got, this isn't it.

I can also confirm that there are no rules in this book. There is no quickstart section and this scenario not playable without the core rulebook.

This says it is “designed to introduce you to the game”. Does that mean it’s a quickstart?

It's a stripped down version of the rules with pregenerated characters. The basic mechanics are pretty much all there though - they just get expanded upon in the main rulebook.
So it is essentially a quickstart but because the system is a pretty simple one (very similar to Tales from the Loop) it doesn't seem as stripped down as many other quickstarts.
I've had Chariot of the Gods for quite a few months now as part of the initial preorder and its a pretty good introductory scenario. Very atmospheric and felt like it fit into the Alien universe. It does a great job of incorporating the 'Cinematic' play style.

Thanks for the answer, Dean. I had the same question.

Thanks for that answer!

This product isn't what the preorder ppl received, apparently, because this is not quickstart rules. If you don't have the main book, you won't be able to use this.

All rules references point to the book. The NPCs are stat'd up, and the Abomination creature, but everything else requires you to use the core rulebook.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
