    You emerge from your host and land on the floor with a wet *splup* as your still-soft carapace takes the impact easily.

    You register a DIM LIGHT above you and two DARK RECESSIONS, one on either side of you. The still-warm body of your host hangs from the wall behind you. There are no other noticeable features around you.

    What do you do?

    The darkness envelops you, but you can still register your environment just fine. The recession is quite large compared to your tiny body, but the further you scurry the more small alcoves and tunnels you find. The entire place smells like you, but faintly.

    That depends on canon, actually. Some sources have Queens being born from Praetorians, who are in turn created from drones by feeding them Royal Jelly (such as the AvP RTS and a few AvP comics). Other sources (such as Aliens: Stronghold) claim that Queens (and, to a lesser extent, Praetorians) are born from specific eggs which are visually distinct from other eggs. It's just up to the individual which explanation you prefer.

    Throw Warm Body to the floor and jump down after him. Lay about with claw and tail.

    Hopefully, we'll manage to maim a couple of them instead of killing.

    You hurl the WARM BODY in your hands directly at the other WARM BODIES, which results in a great deal of scurrying and noise-making on their part.

    As you lunge toward the audien- I mean the WARM BODIES, one of them somehow makes a VERY LOUD SOUND and a VERY BRIGHT LIGHT!

    Roll a d12, please.

    Knock out the one in hand and drop it on the others, they while they are trying to figure out what is going on or check on him, we drop on them out for the Kill. Have one that can be brought back for a host, don't need to go easy on the rest. If anouther survives we've got a full set for the eggs.

    You avoid the VERY BRIGHT LIGHTS, but the WARM BODY is still making VERY LOUD SOUNDS and VERY BRIGHT LIGHTS.

    More than one of the other WARM BODIES is fleeing back the way they came! (the west hall)

    The WARM BODY you threw is not moving. One of the other WARM BODIES is laying on the ground making loud noises.

    True dat. I'll allow it.

    You impale the WARM BODY making the VERY LOUD SOUND and suddenly there is no more VERY LOUD SOUND or VERY BRIGHT LIGHTS.

    That makes MORE THAN ONE WARM BODY immobile in this room. The other WARM BODIES are still fleeing down the (west) hallway.

    Damnit. Is it coming from the same direction we are chasing the bodies in?

    Backtrack to the place where we left the two bodies. If the one we dropped from the ceiling is still alive, grab him. If not, just grab either of them for food. Carry the body back to the ceiling and try and stealth our way back to the hive, avoiding the LARGE COLD THING.

    If you would like to climb directly up to the EGG TUNNEL you can carry a WARM BODY with each foot.

    If you would like to flee down the (northeast) tunnel you can carry a single WARM BODY while you run.

    EXTREMELY LOUD SOUNDS fuck with Xenomorphs. Like, a lot. They seriously don't like them. In one of the comics, they actually use sonic cannons to completely incapacitate adult Xenomorphs and terrify a Queen into retreating.
    Ergo, we grab one of the warm things and get the fuck out of dodge (i.e. back to the secluded egg chamber, hopefully where the BIG THING can't follow us).

    We could try this. Before we do though, try to fling (or otherwise stash) one of the warmbloods up in the entrance to the egg chamber. Hopefully our hugger friends will be able to smell him and make it to his body; we can drag them to safer confines when we get back.

    Do we know if the BIG THING can fit through the tunnel we took to get here? If no, take the time to secure them. If not, it's a much higher priority; if the warm things get back up and escape, they might tell the others where our eggs are.. But if the BIG THING gets in here, it's GAME OVER MAN, GAME OVER.
