Alien: The Roleplaying Game, based on the iconic movie franchise, was published by Free League last December. It’s since gone on to become one of the most successful tabletop products of 2020 — no easy feat when you consider the circumstances. Imagine how popular it could get if you could play it remotely. Looks like we don’t have to imagine anymore…
A virtual tabletop version of the ALIEN RPG Starter Set has been added to the VTT platforms Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds. It’s got both the full-length cinematic scenario Chariot of the Gods and its sequel Destroyer of Worlds, the latter of which was released as an expansion last April. Both were written by sci-fi author Andrew E.C. Gaska, and all you need is the Starter Set to play both of them. Fantasy Grounds also has all 392 pages of the Alien RPG core hardcover rulebook.
While the Starter Set isn’t as full-featured as the full version, it coontains a 104-page abridged rulebook (except on Fantasy Grounds), 20 custom dice, reference cards, character handouts, a huge starmap, and the two scenarios. All these parts are replicated in the virtual version.
Now, no matter where you are, you have no excuse not to be playing the Alien RPG. The only way to stop the proliferation of this game is to nuke it from orbit.
