Xenomorph: Background Briefing

Here is the second of the player handouts for my Xenomorph game to be run at Phenomenon 2012. The seven page PDF presents an  introduction to Shackleton station and recent events.

Download the low rez PDF here (943 K):

and a high rez version if you’d like to print it out (6.3 Meg):

Xenomorph Background Briefing (high rez)

None of the Xenomorph handouts contain spoilers, all are safe for pre-game perusal. Collect the full set and impress your friends. :)

Mission Call
In the dark hours after general curfew, station security control is bathed in shadow.

Quiet all decks. Shackleton’s tiny habitat of some fourteen hundred fragile souls lies sleeping. An entire steel-encased world surrenders to sleep. A few rest peacefully, others not. All dream. Perhaps even MOTHER dreams.

With a soft repeated beeping, the watch officer’s screen wakens to life. Down-scrolling letters reflect in the glass of a space helmet.

MOTHER calls, cryptic and insistent. Something is amiss.

MOTHER has something that needs doing.

On Shackleton a woman is sleeping. On Shackleton a woman awakes.

In the darkness, someone is weeping.
