Alternity (Tabletop Sci-Fi RP) Discussion

Postby PantslessJedi » Aug 22nd, 2010 @ 12:21am

I'm sure I'll be one of three people who will look at this thread, but I need to share just how incredibly awesome the session was that I just DMed.

First, I'll talk a bit about Alternity, since it is old and obscure. Basically, it's a sci-fi adventure system, with an awesome and intricate skill system. The system boils down to "Roll low. it's good." and there's varying levels of success. Let's say your skill in hacking is 16. Half that number, and half it again. You now have 16, 8, and 4. 17 and higher is a failure (20 is crit fail), 16-9 is an Ordinary success, 8-5 is a Good success, and 4-1 is an Amazing success (equivalent for critical hits, basically.)

It's a good system for running Sci-fi stuff, once you get over some of the more bizarre and confusing rules.

Now that that's out of the way, I must share the awesome session.
---
Spoiler: show
I had absolutely no time to prepare tonight. I was kept busy with many other things this week, so the adventure was mostly brown (pulled out of my butt.)

The crew takes a mission to transport a Cortex Courier (dude with a nanocomputer in his head. He transfers data securely from point A to point B.), and discovers a derelict unknown ship. Ship has battle damage and no lifesigns are detected. They board the ship and return power. They soon discover that the ship is thousands of years old, and runs on foreign technology. There are MANY pods with creatures inside.

As they progress through the ship, they let out one of the aliens. They're able to piece together a tiny bit of their written language, and communicate through a touch-pad data slate (lol iPad.)

Explosions rock the ship. When they returned power to the ship, they also woke up strange alien invaders.

They battle their way through the ship, clearing out the hostiles. (Frost-based crystalline entities that can shoot energy beams. Also, they can refract beams off each other.)

Eventually it is discovered that the ship was fleeing from these aliens, and the aliens boarded them and tried to take over. While they were attached for boarding parties, they fell into a spacial anomaly. On the other end of it, the two ships had become merged into a single, odd ship.

The aliens bodies were recovered, to be sold at a later date as precious gemstones.


I know, my recap won't be as awesome as being there, but I am on such an unbelievable high from the session, I can't help but share. This was 6 hours of pure gaming bliss.

I had a first print Alternity book signed by the two creators, but I lost it. :(

It was a fun ass system. I demoed it three times at Gen Con the first year it came out. I really dug the skill based system. It seemed really adaptable to a lot of sci fi settings.

After being introduced to it, it's become my new favorite non-fantasy system, dethroning Gurps..which is bloated as all hell, but highly adaptable.

I may have to add this to the collection - always on the lookout for good TTRPG toolsets.
