Ties That Bind Gaming presents Episode 1 of the Homebrew Alien RPG Space Trucker Podcast featuring real and actual play.
Hello and welcome to Halifax: Precious Cargo betwixt Dragons and Ghosts. We are a team of five working together to tell an original story set in the Alien universe. Alien RPG serves as the framework that guides us along this journey. Our story begins with Episode 1: Almost Home.
This is the story of Halifax, an M-Class Commercial Starfreighter under the ownership of Weyland-Yutani, a large multinational conglomerate. The Wey-Yu employed crew aboard Halifax takes on cargo delivery jobs that dispatches them across the Stars of the Middle Heavens. However, space is a dangerous place and the unimaginable is bound to happen.
The story of Halifax is set within the Alien universe. We are a team of five and we work together to tell the story. Our adventure begins in the year 2179, the same year that Ellen Ripley is recovered from the Nostromo, survives LV-426, and then is lost on Florina 161.
Alien RPG is a tabletop role-playing game that serves as the framework that guides us through our journey. Halifax: Precious Cargo betwixt Dragons and Ghosts is an original story based on a homebrew campaign written by Joseph Stader. Every episode features actual play with minimal editing.
Expect story elements regarding space-horror, sci-fi action, survival, and a sense of wonder. Gameplay consists of chance mixed with strategic planning. Every choice has a consequence. The right choice leads to another day where the wrong choice leads to panic, injury, or death.
Welcome to Halifax. Buckle up, we are in for some chop.
A Message from MU/TH/UR:
This is the first episode of a story-driven series set in the Alien universe. It’s also my first time directing a series. The truth is that Halifax starts off a bit rocky and it takes a few episodes to start finding a rhythm. However, I encourage you to stick with it. If you are a fan of science fiction, horror, and survival themes, you will find that Halifax: Precious Cargo betwixt Dragons and Ghosts hits all the marks.
