Alien is a huge influence on me, my writing, and my life as an on-and-off RPG enthusiast. I can’t wait to see Prometheus. The iconic “go/don’t go” narrative—man’s quest for alien life/running therefrom—provides limitless opportunity for scenario mining. Make the aliens bad guys. Then later make them necessary against even worse bad guys. Never neglect origins: Where do the aliens come from? What do they want? Are they us, humans, transposed into a far-future milieu, perhaps against their will? That’s metal. They’re probably hungry. Fear them.
