The second session of the Cinematic Starter for the Free League Alien RPG available for download with all pre-orders of the game. Cinematic adventures are one-shot scenarios with pre-generated characters that replicate the tension and high body count of the Alien movies. We introduce the system and run through the characters and their relationships and talents. Our only complaint about the PDF is that it is not very printer-friendly being mostly light text on a black background. So we created a printer-friendly version of the character sheet and a player reference to help anyone interested in trying this adventure. #alienRPG #frialigan #ttrpg #actualplay
When we pick back up the party finds the remaining crew of a derelict ship coming out of cryo-sleep.

We discuss the ubiquity and popularity of Dungeons and Dragons for better or worse. Playing the Cinematic Starter for the Free League Alien RPG and the release of the adaption of the unproduced William Gibson Alien 3 screenplay to both a Dark Horse comics series and an Audible audio drama for inspiration. A free alternative to Adobe Creative Suite monopoly. Is the tabletop roleplaying hobby suffering from the McDonald’s effect? #alienrpg #frialigan #alien
We talk to Cass Suwinski about his latest Kickstarter for the Dwarf Mine Quest RPG Dungeon Tiles. His company, Tomb Guardians Miniatures, has created a series of metal miniatures for their dungeon crawl RPG. This project is for high resolution 3D printed dungeon tile for the first part of the adventure, the Dwarf Mine. The tiles use an innovative magnet system to connect them, as opposed to clips, and also feature LED lighting details. Check out this immersive and affordable project for your next dungeon crawl!
Ken Spencer talks to us about the Why Not Games Kickstarter for the adaption of Rocket Age to “the world’s greatest role-playing game” 5th edition. He also talks about the inspiration for the setting and also their plans to keep all books for Rocket Age available in both “classic” version, using the original Vortex system, and the DnD 5e ruleset. If you like pulp science fiction with a modern 1930s viewpoint and only ever play DnD, check out Rocket Age 5e.
We were lucky enough to get some time with Lou Agresta in the middle of the Kickstarter for Grimmerspace, a scifi horror setting for the Paizo Starfinder RPG. We discuss the choice of the system, playing horror in an RPG, Sean Astin’s involvement in the project, the Grimmerspace setting and setting-specific character classes and technology. We played the free starter adventure available on the Kickstarter page called Abbatoir-8 and we recount a little of our experiences. #grimmerspace #starfinder
