Metamorphosis Beta

Posted by & filed under BLOG, Metamorphosis Alpha, Roleplay.

Combining “An Alternate Beginning Sequence for Metamorphosis Alpha” (from Dragon #6) with Justifiers and X-plorers gives players another pretty damn cül option for character type: animals bioengineered to anthropomorphic intelligence. Think the wake-up scene in Aliens but with monkeys and tigers instead of Hicks and Hudson. Whereas the Clones of of the Alpha Protocol were… Read more »

The Mind of Mindok!

Posted by & filed under BLOG, Mod, Mutant Future, TV.

My favourite Wizard from Thundarr the Barbarian is, bar none, Mindok the Mind Menace from the ep of the same name. Watch it now: Go ahead, I’ll wait. Done? Cül. OK so I’ve wanted a fig of Mindok for a good long while. I despaired of ever having one but then I discovered this guy:… Read more »

Because you demanded it!

Not really. More like just ’cause I wanna. Well that and, amazingly, nobody* has seen fit to inject chickens — by far Earth’s most domesticated bird — into Metamorphosis Alpha. Weird right?

I’m about to start a MDRG campaign set on the Starship Birkenden.

Chris and the Anti-Chris

Posted by & filed under BLOG, Film, Simulview.

Yul Brynner will blow your head off! The Magnificent Seven (Netflix):     start at 1:11:47 remaining. Westworld (iTunes):                         start at 1:13:23 remaining. They open at the first appearance of the Anti-Chris and both go dark at the same time. They have some cool synergies. I’ve watched them a few times; it only gets better…. Read more »

Holtzman Shield

I want a fig with one of these: If Cameron Hodge can have one I want one too. But how to put one on a fig? I’ve got a couple of these to try it out: I’m thinking split the force field off Dr. Banner there, glue it around a different — though equally wooden-posed… Read more »
