I am just starting a new game of EC, and one of my players used the life path system to make there character. One thing he rolled was the Alien Pet from the Gatecrashing table. Now he is constantly asking what he has. I have been giving it some thought and have to admit I am and a bit of a loss. I was originally going to say he had to leave it behind, but that seems a little cheap. On the other hand, any alien, no matter how "mammalian" looking, would starve to death outside it's biosphere.
Has anyone else used the Alien Pet before? I have been thinking of making an upload of an alien or something that lives of something unknown.
