Game Notes

Because Purvis is impregnated with an embryo, any scenarios utilizing his character should also incorporate the Impregnated Characters Rule. Purvis can optionally be allowed to sacrifice himself upon failing the impregnation roll. He is given the special skill that during his sacrifice, he can choose any character that is adjacent to him and roll a die. On a roll of 1 or 2, he successfully grabs the character and the chestburster kills both characters. This is similar to the Gorman rule in that it serves no purpose other than petty revenge.
