Metamorphosis Alpha is a game that has stood the test of time. Originally published in 1976, it was brought out in a new, complete edition by Goodman Games in 2014—and is still going. Just last year, we released the all-new Epsilon City boxed set—written by the game’s creator, James M. Ward—containing a fully-realized city on board the spaceship Warden. Over the years we have produced many products, from adventures to t-shirts and everything in between. It’s been quite a ride!
And there is also the fiction.
In Metamorphosis Alpha, you are aboard the stricken starship and struggling to survive, trying to gain knowledge of the strange devices and mechanical apparatus of the vessel, attempting to learn the secrets of the strange “world” you inhabit. The two-volume Metamorphosis Alpha: Chronicles from the Warden series, both edited and published by Craig Martelle, contain a variety of tales set aboard the lost starship that serves as a world to its inhabitants, exploring the risks and dangers that confront them on a daily basis.
And now we have both volumes back in stock! Let’s take a closer look at the two books.
Eight authors come together to help bring Metamorphosis Alpha alive. James M. Ward, Craig Martelle, Valerie Emerson, Stephen A. Lee, Craig J. Brain, Steve Peek, Chris Clark, and Michael Curtis each bring you their take on the star-lost ship and its struggling inhabitants.
Volume two of the series contains fourteen new stories set in the world of Metamorphosis Alpha. This massive 608-page book features stories by James M. Ward, Craig Martelle, Alex Bates, Scott Moon, Valerie Emerson, Stephen A. Lee, Bob Brinkman, Scott King, Christopher Clark, Craig J. Brain, E.E. Isherwood, Thomas J. Rock, Steve Peek, and Bill Patterson.
