I saw your finished app. Looks great! I feel like she would fit the company rep role well.

Great app Mitsubachi! Love the interview format. If you're wanting some suggestions for possible birth places, what about the colony on Lebanon 2? Pretty close to a frontier colony that seems like a rough place to grow up that would fit with your character. Here is a LINK to the Xenopedia page

ALIEN RPG application: Alex the roughneckA little bit about yourself and what draws you to the world of Alien: There is a definite ‘cyberpunk’ odor to the world of Alien, but it isn’t overpowering; it's complimentary to the horror aspect. It was one of the first bump-in-the-night movies I saw in theaters, so part of my childhood, really. And the second movie was an awesome action ride, where action dominated but the dark future touches were there without being awkward.

Which role you’re applying to: Techie, or maybe cargo-handler, i.e. a roughneck.

Name, gender, age, birth place: Alexander (call me Alex) Moroz, male, 37, Los Angeles, Earth

Backstory and a character portrait:

Thanks for the app Solitaire64! Great backstory. I always thought that portrait fits the cargo handler/rough neck vibe pretty well myself!

Perfect thanks @TheDude4000 I will grab that hint with both hands and have edited the birthplace into my app.

So far I have applications for roles from the following people:

-Captain: To be decided.
-Company agent: Tydorei
-Pilot: Cybersavant
-Cargo handler: Psuedenim and Solitaire64
-Technician: Mitsubachi

We still need a for sure captain. Since we have two cargo handlers, I might drop the medic role. It appears Tydorei's character has some medical background, so if she takes a skill or two in medical aid we could probably do without a dedicated medic.

Indeed. Dabbling with the character creator, my Agent did have medical skills.

Excellent! That will work perfectly then.

Captain
right-aligned image

A little bit about yourself and what draws you to the world of Alien
I was probably 16 when I first watched Alien, say 1984-ish. You remember that scene where Dallas goes into the tunnels to hunt the creature? The motion sensor starts picking up movement, it's getting closer, he can't see anything, Ripley and the others start telling him to run, he does, twists, turns, slides down the ladder, turns around and its....right....there! Yeah, I easily jumped 3 feet up from where I was sitting. Finished watching the movie and when the friends I was with got ready to watch Aliens next I made an excuse that I needed to go home. Freaked out. Years later I've watched both several times, enjoyed Aliens a lot, no surprise, easily my favorite. Have not seen all of Prometheus and nothing of Alien: Covenant yet. The future isn't bright and shiny. Technology didn't make our lives all better, at least not for most folks. It's gritty and harsh and the corporations control everything. I probably wouldn't want to live there but story of being a regular Joe, facing some nightmare and sticking it to the corporation while doing it? Yeah that's a good feeling. The fact that you're likely to die in the process? Well, hopefully you have just as memorable of an ending as old Dallas did for me.

Side note: We showed them to our kids when they were teens/early tweens. They weren't scared at all, not from Alien or Aliens. I was kind of pissed honestly.

Which role you’re applying to
Captain

Name, gender, age, birth place
Name: Garret Shaw
Gender: Male
Age: 57
Birth Place: Old Detroit, Earth

Backstory
Shaw is tired. He's been flying between one rundown station or another for 25 years. After all the crap he's seen, both from crooked corps to crew doing stupid ****, plus the 3 ex-wives he's lost along the way, he's become a little jaded. Okay, a lot jaded. As such he doesn't get excited quickly, he talks even, calm. But push him too far and he gets a look in his eyes that says you wouldn't be the first body I've seen spaced.

WIP

Oh yeah, that scene is intense! It is amazing to me that things that scare us seem to be different from generation to generation. Sadly I still can't get my wife to watch Alien with me. She knows it would scare her! Maybe I can convince her to give it a shot for this halloween season!

I've run this scenario before so I sadly have to hold off on applying, but gotta say you folks are in for a treat! It was one of my favorite short games I've ever been involved in.
