What if that “cloud of space radiation” was in fact …

the Eye of Terror? I mean, this … looks a lot like this: I’m thinking temporal anomaly combined with dimension shift or parallel jump. A world without string! It’s a cool way to set some Rogue Trader skirmish gaming or X-plorers roleplaying in a new environment. If this idea is good enough for Star Trek,… Read more »

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 »

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 thinking a competitive round (or two) of Mutants and Death Ray Guns bring-and-battle leading to a final round of Metamorphosis Alpha roleplay exploration…. Read more »

MetAl to MuDRaG and Back

This is my first run at a system for converting Metamorphosis Alpha characters to Mutants and Death Ray Guns figures, and vice versa: MetAl-MuDRaG-and-back01 I’ve run some tests with statted NPCs from the glorious Goodman Games MetAl hardcover and also with some entirely random characters I rolled up using my Dicenomicon app (my goto for… Read more »

I just watched Last Train to Doomsday for I don’t know, maybe the tenth time. Only just noticed this guy:   Exactly. A Spidergoat! And I think that’s a young Yeek (the aerial Ookla who appears in Den of the Sleeping Demon) to the left of the Spidergoat.
