#Unboxing Alien The Roleplaying Game Starter Set: What do you get with this horror RPG box set?

Take a look at what you get with this new ALIEN RPG Starter Set, a horror roleplaying game beginner box from Free League Publishing.


This RPG boxed set includes everything you need to play the new Alien RPG including pre-generated characters, two sets of dice, a 45-page adventure, a 100-page rulebook and more.

Disclosure: Free League Publishing kindly provided me with a review copy of this boxed set.


What you get in the ALIEN The Roleplaying Game Starter Set: 

From the publisher:

The job was routine, the money fair. Then the damn company diverted you to answer a distress call from a ship that disappeared almost 80 years ago—a derelict carrying something bizarre, twisted, and alien. What the ship’s frozen crew brought back with them was bad enough—what they themselves were turning into was a bloody nightmare. Add to that an annoying sensor ghost shadowing you in the void, and your stress level is shot.

It’s all a bit much.

You don’t get paid enough to deal with monsters. But hold your breath, count to three, and play your cards right with this one, and you just might walk away very rich. Oh, who am I kidding?
You’re all going to die.

This is a starter set for the official ALIEN tabletop roleplaying game—a universe of body horror and corporate brinkmanship, where synthetic people play god while space truckers and marines play host to newborn ghoulish creatures. It’s a harsh and unforgiving universe and you are nothing if not expendable.

Stay alive if you can.

This 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 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, 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 custom cards for weapons, personal agendas, and initiative in combat.
