Free League’s Alien RPG is one of their most successful products, and has received several additional campaigns since its release. The latest expansion, Colonial Marines Operations Manual, was announced last December for a March 2021 release. It hit a delay or two since that point, but it’s finally out now.
The Colonial Marines Operations Manual will let you and your friends launch a campaign from the perspective of the military sent to wipe out the Xenomorph menace. You saw the movies, so you know that’s easier said than done. They can cut the power, man! This campaign introduces five new missions, expanded character creation rules and a backstory for the Marines. Keep in mind this is not a standalone — it assumes you already own the core rulebook.
You joined the Corps because you wanted to see the stars. You believe in duty and honor. You have made friends for life here—and watched plenty of them get cut down by shrapnel. No one pays you to ask why, just to follow orders. Protect and serve the citizens and colonies of the Outer Rim colonies—no matter what the cost. Now, lock and load your pulse rifle, marine. You have a job to do.
History & Organization – the inside story of the illustrious Colonial Marine Corps.
Creating Marines – expanded character creation rules for grunts of all kinds.
Weapons & Vehicles – an extensive chapter with new gear, gloriously illustrated.
The Frontier War – the framework and backstory for a Colonial Marines campaign.
