Five Parsecs From Home: The Mining Colony (1st Mission)

Mission Log:
Arrived 'Itori Station' at 0600. Everything seemed deserted, as if the station was abandoned in a hurry. We tried to find the control room to check the logs. I split up the crew to get to a working console faster. Not a good idea.

Ms. Swann was attacked by a slimy something and mauled pretty badly before our synthetic could finally solve the problem. I was barely lucky to keep one of these things off my back before Roddy and Estella were able to crossfire it and finish it off. We were able to pick off about a handful of these strange creatures.
After none of them showed up again, we could stabilize Ms. Swann in the control room and retrieve the station's logs. Actually, we wanted to leave as soon as possible, but one of the 'LifeLink' trackers of the medical monitoring is active and showed a signal on one of the lower levels. Unfortunately, other signals have also appeared on the scanners, whose movement patterns are obviously non-human. We closed all access bulkheads and tried to make an emergency call, unsuccessfully. The transmitter seems to be defective.

I'm considering sending a team to repair the transmitter while I head out with the others to look for the survivor. Or we pack up our stuff and make our way to the shuttle port as quickly as possible and get out of there. No amount of credits is worth this mess here!

My first mission with 5PFH, which almost became a fiasco due to bad dice. I use the ruleset as a framework to play a bit solo in the Alien universe. The rules are simple and quick, and fit my more cinematic approach very well.

The Crew

The crew of the 'Niddhögg' has been hired by Wayland-Yutani to check the distress signal of a mining colony, but already at the entrance of the station they encounter an unusual life form.

One of my side projects is slowly taking a little more shape. Some creatures have to be painted, then I'm going to embark on the unwanted adventure of solo wargaming again due to the lack of current game partners. I will use the rules of 'Five Parsecs from Home: Bug Hunt', which are designed for adventuring alone.

Saga: Ulfhednar


Ulfhednar or Wolfskins painted by Michi for Saga. Very similar to berserkers those believed to join battle as wolves and therefore wore their hides. The females are from Stronghold, the origin of the males is unknown.

Michi hat ein paar Ulfhednar oder Wolfshäute für Saga angepinselt. Ähnlich den Berserkern zogen sie im Glauben in die Schlacht sich in Wölfe zu verwandeln, wenn sie deren Felle trugen. Die weiblichen Figuren sind von Stronghold, die Herkunft der männlichen ist unbekannt.
