Metamorphosis Alpha by Signal Fire StudiosLong in the works (Yikes, I covered the announcement 6 years ago!) and somewhat different than originally planned (it was supposed to be based on 4th Edition D&D), Metamorphosis Alpha from Signal Fire Studios is now available in ebook form. Not to be confused with the 1976 edition recently reprinted by Goodman Games, this version retains the setting but pairs it with new rules based on the company’s System 26 dice-pool mechanics.

For those of you unfamiliar, Metamorphosis Alpha was the first science fiction roleplaying game. The setting is the starship Warden, a 50 mile long colony ship, which is malfunctioning and has been knocked off-course. Its residents have been subject to generations of mutations. And the humans on-board have mostly reverted to primitive tribal societies.
