About the adventure

The tiny speck of the first colonization starship moved sluggishly through the cold depths of space. There was much mankind didn’t know about the stars, and one of those mysterious effects slashed into the starship Warden 300 years ago. Now the ship drifted through the darkness, lost and in trouble. While many intelligences move about its decks, none of them work to help the starship find its way. Generations later, you are a native on the starship Warden. As a true human, mutant, or robot, you fight to survive, unaware that the radiation-saturated world around you is in fact a starship, one of mankind’s greatest achievements. Can you uncover the secrets of the starship Warden and steer it back on course, or will you simply try to live another day? Return to the glory days of sci-fi gaming with the Metamorphosis Alpha. Adventure like it’s 1978 again, with modern rules grounded in the origins of fantasy role-playing. Expect a good, old–fashioned adventure played in the old school style with an abundance of traps, tricks and monsters. Villains will be villainous. Combat will be deadly. Each player will start with a first level characters. Beginners are always welcome.
