  • Xeno Dead Zone by Runehammer Games; though as I write this there’s two broken images and a typo in the description, so the inside probably still not well edited either. But, might still be fun as both a stand-alone Aliens / Space Hulk pastiche and an expansion of the rules and extra components for Index Card RPG. Or, as a play aid for a sci-fi bug hunt crawl scenario in your own game using whatever system you prefer.
