Our in-depth review of the Alien RPG Cinematic Starter by Free League. More than 90 minutes of overview, analysis and some spoilers for the free PDF adventure, Chariot of the Gods. We start with a summary of the Year Zero System used in the game and how it differs from previous Free League releases like Forbidden Lands and Mechatron. There are also the stress, consumables and PVP mechanics that are unique to this system and setting. We discuss the use of props and sound effects and their effect on the sessions. We played through the adventure in 4 game sessions that are available on our YouTube and Twitch channels.
If you are curious about the Alien RPG and its system and setting this should give you a very thorough idea of how this game plays and if you want to bring it to your gaming table.
Staying on topic this week with tabletop talk. Is D&D 5E the best entry to the hobby or are there better option? Dungeon World? FATE? Chris ran the Cinematic Starter Adventure for the Alien RPG in one session. Riot Minds launched the sourcebook and adventure for Muspelheim on Kickstarter.
