Well, it appears I'm about to eat my own words from yesterday and write about tabletop games two days in a row...
Back in December, Free League Publishing released the 392-page core rulebook for the official Alien roleplaying game along with a host of supplements, which immediately sold out its first print run.
If you were one of the lucky people to snag the set, the company has today announced that Destroyer of Worlds, a new Cinematic scenario module for the tabletop RPG, will be officially released on September 8th, alongside a new Starter Set for the game.
Written by sci-fi author Andrew E.C. Gaska, Destroyer of Worlds lets players take the role of an iconic type of character from the Alien universe: the Colonial Marine. A team of Colonial Marines get dropped onto the moon Ariaricus to handle a growing insurgency, but soon find themselves fighting for their lives against enemies beyond their worst nightmares.
Priced at $29.99, the Destroyer of Worlds Cinematic scenario comes in a boxed set, including maps, handouts, and cards for a fully immersive tabletop experience.
As for the Alien RPG Starter Set, it is designed to be the perfect entry point into the game and the Alien universe. Affordably priced at $49.99, it contains everything needed to start playing, including an abridged 104-page softcover quickstart of the core rules, 20 custom dice, reference cards, character handouts, a huge starmap, and the complete Cinematic scenario Chariot of the Gods, also penned by Gaska.
