Blasters & Black Holes: Aliens and such

Yes, I know I’m behind in posting. Real life hasn’t been all that grand but you don’t come here to hear me whine.
Crazy aliens are hallmark for space opera and wanted a simple and flexible way to do it. There’s two really good systems out there. The system for Machinations of the Space Princess and X-plorers. Both are awesome. Now Machinations is a bit more complicated and I wanted something simpler. I gave myself one-page to do it. Yeah that was fun. But I think I hit on the key things as far as crunch goes when it comes to making an alien, cyborg, mutant, or robot. The little stuff doesn’t matter a +1 to AC is +1 to AC. Let the player define why and use it as inspiration for the fluff. The X-plorers version of aliens is pretty darned. Short and to the point and builds them as a class. I didn’t want to quite go that way but it serves as good inspiration.
So here you go. aliensv1
Things have been crazy like I said. Right now the “plan” is to hit up Weapons, Armor & Gear next. Then ships. And finally psychic abilities. This one is going to take me a while to get done. So I’m saving it for last. Once all this stuff is done in draft form and I have a chance to brainstorm a little more, it’s going to get mashed together. Then we’ll just see.
