I was thrilled to see that there was a new starter kit being made for the Alien RPG by Free League. This kit doesn’t include the core book but everything you may need to play the game, all packaged in a nice little box.
The Starter 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 Cinematic 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 (format 864x558mm), 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 high quality custom cards for weapons, personal agendas, and initiative in combat.
A set each of ten engraved Base Dice and ten Stress Dice, designed specifically for the ALIEN roleplaying game.ALIEN RPG Starter Bundle – PRE-ORDER
And the much awaited new scenario Destroyer of Worlds. You will play the role of Colonial Marines in this scenario. It should take about 3–5 players plus the Game Mother, and can take up to three sessions to complete.
This boxed set contains: The main Destroyer of Worlds scenario book.
A huge double-sided map (format 864x558mm) of Ariaricus colony on one side and the Fort Nebraska space elevator ground base on the other.
Five pre-generated characters to play.
Custom cards for weapons, vehicles, and personal agendas, Player maps and handouts.ALIEN RPG Starter Bundle – PRE-ORDER
But if you already have the Core book and Alien RPG Bundle you could always opt to just get Destroyer of Worlds.
The mission was a manhunt, the objectives clear—track down four fugitives, recover any assets they may have made off with, and keep ‘em all out of enemy hands. Go find them on a frozen moon full of hostiles and get it done on the eve of war. Nothing you couldn’t handle. But what it is that these bastards stole—and how the hell it got inside them—is another thing altogether. It’s all above your paygrade, marine—but somehow you’re the one who’s got to deal with it. Of course, now there’s an invasion fleet incoming, and there’s something else, too—something much worse. Something out there hates you—hates everyone. Something big and ugly. Something with metal teeth—and you’re pretty sure it ain’t alone. Yeah, the mission was supposed to be a simple manhunt. Instead it turned out to be just another glorious day in the corps.ALIEN RPG Destroyer of Worlds – PRE-ORDER
But if you did miss out getting the RPG initially there is a starter bundle, but it is definitely worth getting the two together since the price is quite a steal!
