ALIEN RPG Starter Set

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.

This is a starter set for the official ALIEN tabletop roleplaying game—a universe of body horror and corporate brinkmanship, where synthetic people play god while space truckers and marines play host to newborn ghoulish creatures. It’s a harsh and unforgiving universe and you are nothing if not expendable.

Stay alive if you can.

This set contains everything you need to start playing:

  • 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 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-color, double-sided map, 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 custom cards for weapons, personal agendas, and initiative in combat.

Does this product include printer-friendly versions of the adventure?

Something this does not include is character creation rules. For that you will need to purchase the Core Rulebook.

This does come with 5 pre-generated characters for the Chariot of the Gods scenario that are well rounded and look great for the scenario. The other scenario Destroyer of Worlds also comes with pregen characters.

This is to say, that while the Chariot of the Gods scenario is included, I wish that I had just bought the core rule book and the scenario separately. In hard copy this product would still feel useful since it would come with print outs and tokens, but as a rules reference it limits you to only running published scenarios as is, without modification and without creating your own characters.

Does this include the stress and panic rules/tables or are they only in the Core?

1. Would it be possible to have a zip file of single jpegs for the items (cards, markers, etc) for use with Virtual Table Top's (VTT's)?
2. Would be possible to have a single high resolution jpeg if maps as well?

It would make running online games much easier.

Thank you for your great products!

The heading says it's a PDF, but the description includes things like tokens, cards, and a "huge" map. Are there physical elements to this offering as well included in this purchase?

No I don’t think so

The "Maps and Tokens" pack includes a print-out of the card-board tokens. I haven't purchased the starter set digitally, only physically, so I can't say if it includes a print-out of the cards or not, but by the description I'd certainly hope so.

Correct, the Maps, Tokens, and cards are all included in the PDF bundle. You'll need to print and cut them out yourself.

Can confirm first-hand now, I got it digital.

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.
