material from the original Alien movie

Postby Burocrate » Fri Jul 11, 2014 8:20 pm

I just ran across a great collection of photos from Ridley Scott's classic sci-fi horror film Alien. I have never seen some of these and thought I would share the link.

Decades ago, someone made a Traveller adventure that was definitely ALIEN influenced including three stages of development. I wish I could remember where I read it,. Most like one of many Traveller magazines.

The classic adventures The Chamax Plague and its sequel, The Chamax Horde were stated as Alien-inspired. Plague is still one of my favorite campaign-starting adventures.

Oh I know the Chamax scenarios very well and they're great. The one I'm thinking is more ALIEN. Must go through all my back issues of all the Traveller magazines.

THANK YOU!! I went through the loose issues I own and was going to dig out the collected next but you beat me to it. For those wondering, here are the old stats;

100 eggs 3Kg, Hits 0/5, Armor jack, Wounds and weapons 0 - none A0 F0 S0
100 larvae 200 Kg, Hits 1/2, Armor none, Wounds and weapons 3 - none, A0 F0 S1/2
1 Parasite 2Kg, Hits 0/8, Armor jack, Wounds and weapons _ - acid blood 100-600 damage, A0 F0 S0

1 Parasite 120Kg, Hits 30/15, Armor battle, Wounds and weapons 9 - teeth, 6 - teeth-1, 12 - stinger, 8 - claws, A0 F0 S3

Yes, these are CT stats and need to be Mongoosed.

Or you could just get 'Cowboys and Xenomorphs'. One of the species presented is a dead-ringer for the Alien.
