[Year Zero Engine] Fria Ligan to produce Alien the Role Playing Game

Well, I have a pile of blank dice in the house, so it was just a matter of creating the graphics -- as was the case with the Motion Tracker counters. The maps were a small splurge from the folk that Graham gets his maps done at also. Less than £20 for four hard-wearing, water/tearproof maps.

Just been looking at the Chronus; I think that the ship living area (specifically the barracks) are too small if it's a crew of 17. OK, so you can assume that a few are in the corporate suite but that leaves perhaps 3 off 4m x 8m rooms. Perhaps they're set up like a coffin hotel (or a bit like 2010's Leonov)?

You can also assume that the science module had berths for the scientists?

Absolutely coffin births—definitely thinking Japanese coffin hotel or the living arrangements in the Netflix series Maniac. I don't see this being a generous setup at all. I have also assumed that the setup would be more function than luxury throughout, with systems built for resilience and utility over comfort. I also agree that the science module probably had berthing, but it would be in addition to the basic requirement—to allow occupants to have living quarters while stationed elsewhere, off-ship.

Bearing in mind that it's the same class ship as the Prometheus, the cabins and space don't feel quite right compared to what we see in the film though.

Like all comparisons between TV, film and other media, I'm going to suggest that a cramped and utility driven spaceship doesn't bring in the movie goers or care for the heads and limbs of the frighteningly overpaid and highly insured actors. Forget the recent movies as source material and go with the feel of the originals instead.
