Alien Vs Predator

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

Did anyone make xenomorphs, yautja and colonial marines for HERO System?

I'm going to run a Star Wars Vs AVP game, run like the way I imagined the movie to be instead of the horrifically lame movies from 2004 and 2007 along with a Star Wars that resembles the Original Star Wars + Rogue One + The Mandalorian.

 

I would also like to see Ellen Riley and Dutch team up, so if anyone ever stated them out- that would be a big help!

 

Let me know,

Grandmaster GM

I found a few xenomorph and yautja (under various names) Hero write-ups, for Fourth and Fifth Edition Hero System. Links below.

Nothing yet for Ripley, Dutch, or the marines. I may poke around again when I have more time.

There's a franchise?

 

I thought that Danny Glover one pretty well killed any chance of more of those.

 

I like the third Predator movie, but I skipped the fourth one due to its box office flop, poor critical reviews, and devastating fan review.

 

Thank you Lord Liaden for your finds!

Thank you.  How would you build the Alien Queen?

 

Same with an Alien Egg for the Facehugger?

You're welcome -- I hope they were helpful. :)

 

By "the third Predator movie," I'm guessing you mean Predators starring Adrien Brody, from 2010. I enjoyed that one myself, enough to buy it on DVD. It was written as a direct sequel to the first Predator, completely ignoring Predator II which was probably a good idea. OTOH the most recent film has been almost universally panned by critics and fans, which was a surprise to me given Shane Black's directing credits plus his acting role in the very first film.

 

Some online sources treat the two Alien vs Predator films as a separate franchise and continuity, which I guess makes sense.

 

As for writing up an Alien Queen, in her immobile egg-laying form she's a plot device, stats not really needed IMO. For her mobile form she's essentially just a really big xenomorph. I'd take whatever basic xeno character sheet you use, add a Size template ("Large" would be enough, I think), increase her Killing Attacks and Defenses proportionately, and add Extra Limbs for her additional pair of arms.

Just to clarify: Was that sarcasm, or are you genuinely not aware of the successive movies around the Predator concept? (Not that the majority of them are particularly worth awareness of.)

 

 

No sarcasm.  I had no idea there were more than 2.

Fair enough.  How would you build the alien eggs?  Would it be a barrier for the facehugger?

The egg just needs Def and Body.  It's just an object.  If you get within a foot or so, the facehugger can jump out at you.  You saw how it worked in the movies.  It doesn't need a game mechanic for that.  "Summon Facehugger, OAF" is probably overthinking it.
