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 continues with Episode 5: Xarmina’s Star.
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.
