Dare to enter a gritty setting of sci-fi survival horror! 

In these pages you will find a survival horror setting for your science-fiction WOIN games detailing known space, careers, equipment, monsters, and more; plus a detailed terraforming colony on a small, weatherbeaten moon some 40 light years from Earth, and a terrifying adventure which charts the events just prior to the colony’s loss of contact with the Chen Zua Corporation, the company behind the terraforming technology that oversees the United Planets Terraforming Contracts.

Terror and monsters await in the depth of space!

So welcome to Somerset Landing and hold on tight… as all hell is about to break loose!

Requires the use of a What's OLD is NEW core rulebook.


A full-colour 60-page softback setting book which introduces the universe of Xenomorphs,including a 15-page adventure called The Fall of Somerset Landing.

It is the late 22nd century. Humanity has travelled some 50 light years from Earth, but has not yet encountered any intelligent alien civilizations. Colonies — usually financed by the massive Chen Zua Corporation—litter known space, mining, terraforming, and researching, as humanity slowly pushes its frontiers forward. 

Back on Earth, much of the wasted space — Antarctica, the great deserts — has been terraformed and the planet is crowded; resources are running low, a situation which is driving the push out into the galaxy.

This book is divided into three sections:

  • The setting. The first 24 pages of the book describes the overall setting, its main features, player races (Human Norms, Belters, Jovians, Clones, and Synthetics) and careers, and a brief overview of the section of the galaxy that humanity has explored. You can use this section to run your own adventures and campaigns in this setting.
  • The colony. The next 8 pages of the book describes a sample colony, Somerset Landing, some 12 parsecs from Earth. You can run adventures of your own on Somerset Landing, or you can use the adventure in the third part of this book.
  • The adventure. In the third 15-page section of this book, you’ll find an adventure called The Fall of Somerset Landing, a dark horror adventure in which alien xenomorphs invade the colony...
  • Pregenerated characters. Plus a 10-page appendix containing a selection of pregenerated characters. Because in Xenomorphs, you might not make it out alive...
Xenomorphs is a gritty, dark, survival horror setting. Known space is largely dominated by a self-serving corporation, and the setting primarily features blue-collar workers or marines. The game should feel claustrophobic; colonies are dark, cold, and hammered with rain. Death is around every corner, whether by an engineering accident or by something else...

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
