Metamorphosis Alpha

Mutants in space! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we dig into James M. Ward’s Metamorphosis Alpha, the first sci-fi RPG people care about! Halfway through the massive colony ship’s journey, it passed through a cloud of radiation, leading to waves of mutation and a breakdown of society. Now, centuries later, the human population of the ship have lost the knowledge of how to use the ship’s technology, heck, they don’t even know they’re on a ship in space! Explore the world, crawl through the engineering ducts and try to avoid the man-eating plants!
