What I Did for my Summer Vacation - the 2017 Edition - Part One
There was some gaming involved... but I'll post about that at the end of the month with my monthly boardgame round-up.
I was hoping to find the Astropolis II Kickstarter rewards had arrived when I got home, but alas, they have not...
In the meantime... RPGaDay Questions...
I was a HUGE fan of Aliens back in the late 80s. I've probably seen that movie more than any other movie. So needless to say I was SUPER STOKED when I heard there was going to be an ALIENS role-playing game and I bought it the moment I set eyes upon it.... I remember reading the rules and being utterly underwhelmed by the whole thing... I don't recall exactly what it was, but just overall disappointed. I may have made characters, but I'm pretty sure I never got so far as to PLAY the game.
It looks likeHigh Colonies came out in 1988 and ALIENS in 1991, so I've obviously had High Colonies longer. I have a feeling I may have bought Bunnies and Burrows before 1987...

If that's the case I might like to dust off the old Twilight:2000 modules and have a go at them again. I'd probably use a different system. I tired it with Savage Worlds a few years back. Perhaps If I have another go, I could just use them as a scenario generator for a series of skirmish scenarios (there's actually a brilliant blog devoted to just that: It's 500 Miles to the German Border! - A Twilight 2000 mininiature wargaming blog)
